|Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) Iron Man vs. Hulk concept art|
Update: Added another low-res image
We finally have the Hulkbuster armor! Artist Adi Granov said there would be no "Hulkbuster" armor in Avengers, but when Iron Man 3 was being promoted, they released concept art of a brutish armor that many assumed was the famous suit Stark used to fight the Hulk. Turns out it was just a construction suit named "Igor" used to hold things up. But we finally have a real suit of Hulkbuster armor in Avengers 2 and it's even better than I expected!
On Tuesday, ABC aired a special called Marvel Studios: Assembling a Universe which gave a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the Marvel films since Iron Man. It's been called the "Marvel Cinematic Universe" for creating an interconnected universe of Marvel characters. As part of the special Marvel released some incredible concept art including the Hulkbuster armor. Also, notice Quicksilver is blasting through an army of Ultron's robots. At least two of the artists are Charlie Wen and Andy Park.
Charlie Wen and Andy Park are professional concept artists working for Marvel on blockbuster films like Thor: The Dark World (2013), Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) and Marvel's The Avengers (2012).

Official Guardians of the Galaxy Summary
From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team--the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy" expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits--Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon; Groot, a tree-like humanoid; the deadly and enigmatic Gamora; and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand--with the galaxy's fate in the balance.
