If you are looking for a book of photos/actual scenes from the movie I don't beleive this book will do it for you. Background info for the characters and some details why certain places/events took place.
"Avengers: Age of Ultron: The Art of the Movie" is another very nice entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe art book series. It's not my favorite of the Marvel art books, but it touches on most of the things I wanted it to. There is a lot of high-quality color artwork. Like the previous hardcover books, this one comes in a nice slipcase that will help shield the book from everything from dust to drops. The book mostly presents the art in chronological order as it appears in the film - starting with the Sokovia mission; then moving into Avengers HQ and the rise of Ultron; and finally concluding with the film's climactic action sequences. The primary focus of the book is on the characters - in particular, the new characters Ultron and the Vision. Of the existing characters, Iron Man gets the most pages (to be expected given the popularity of that character and the fact that he is always upgrading his suits/armor). The designs of locations, weapons, vehicles, etc. do get some space in the book, but not as much as I would have liked. I also wish there was more early artwork - that is, early concept sketches, storyboards, alternate artwork, etc. Those types of art do appear, but the vast majority of the art in the book is finished color artwork. That's great, but as someone who likes to see how the designs developed over time, I was left slightly disappointed. The book also includes a one-page foreword by Joss Whedon. Overall, it's a worthy purchase if you are a fan of "Age of Ultron" and are curious about the design process. For a complete review and photo gallery of this book, visit movieartbook(dot)com.
