With everyone eagerly awaiting the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron, any glimpses of the awesomeness we will experience next summer are welcomed. We know that Marvel will no doubt unleash some more information at San Diego Comic Con, and in honour of this Entertainment Weekly have given us some amazing pictures from the upcoming release.
We learn that Ultron, created by James Spader with the help of motion capture technology, has been invented by Tony Stark to allow the Avengers time out from saving the world. Stark creates Ultron who is a self-aware, self-teaching, robot designed to help assess threats, and is in charge of the Iron Legion to stop evil in its tracks.However, nothing comes without a cost as Robert Downey Jr explained to the magazine.
As with many of the robots of science fiction, because Ultron lacks the human touch, he works out that the answer to the problems of the world is to eradicate the main source of the problem, the human race. Of Ultron, Joss Whedon says “Ultron sees the big picture and he goes, ‘Okay, we need radical change, which will be violent and appalling, in order to make everything better’; he’s not just going ‘Muhaha, soon I’ll rule!’” Whedon also adds “He’s on a mission. He wants to save us”.
As the pictures show, it is not long before the gang is all back together again, to battle Ultron and save humanity once again. The photographs also introduce us to new characters Quicksilver and Scarlett Witch, who I can’t wait to see and discover just how good or bad these characters actually are.
There aren’t many words to describe just how excited I am for this movie, and as more information and pictures are released, the more excited I get.
Stay tuned to 4YE as we bring you more news on what will no doubt be the summer hit of 2015. For the full interview check out Entertainment Weekly which hits news stands on Friday.
