Following a brief fling with Acura, Tony Stark is reverting back to the four-ringed brand as Audi has announced he will drive the 2016 R8 in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Set to be released on May 1st, Avengers: Age of Ultron reunites the superheroes as they fight their robotic nemesis with the assistance of the Audi A3 Cabriolet, TTS and R8.

According to Audi of America Director of Marketing Loren Angelo, “Having been part of the character’s storyline for the past three Iron Man films, it is a perfect fit for Audi to return in Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron with Tony Stark driving the iconic supercar in its next generation.”

His sentiments were echoed by Audi AG marketing boss Giovanni Perosino who said “The character Tony Stark continues to evolve and represents a truly modern renaissance man – an industrialist, engineer and leader in his new world. It’s this type of innovator that carefully selects their cars and is exactly who would be driving the next generation Audi R8.”
