(CNN) — For superhero fans, the cup runneth over.

Most of us know the members of the Avengers by now: Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk and the rest, and the fact that a few more like Quicksilver are joining the cast in the “Avengers: Age of Ultron” sequel.

But there was one character who remained a mystery: the Vision, to be played by Paul Bettany. Thus far, we’ve only seen his eyes in a trailer.

With less than a month to go before the movie hits theaters, Marvel Studios put all the speculation to rest with a poster featuring Bettany as the heroic android, who was a member of the superhero group for many years in the comics.

Meanwhile, as many Marvel fans know, Thursday was the eve of the new Netflix series “Daredevil,” and after a photoshopped first look at Charlie Cox’s iconic red Daredevil suit went out, Marvel put out a video of the real one.

Not to be outdone, director Bryan Singer announced a new character for next year’s sequel “X-Men: Apocalypse,” by telling Empire magazine that Ben Hardy would be playing the role of the winged mutant Angel.

He even had a photo to share.

And Thursday’s new super images weren’t quite done, because the questions over how Jamie Bell’s rocky character The Thing in the rebooted “Fantastic Four” movie (out August 7) might look were also finally answered. And he looks … pretty much like The Thing we already knew (but reportedly, CGI this time).

Within 24 hours, we got yet another indication that the superhero trend isn’t going anywhere anytime soon (and we didn’t even talk about the new photo of Ryan Reynolds’ “Deadpool”).
