“I’m going to show you something beautiful – everyone screaming for mercy…” Ultron sneers.
It’s time to save the earth again and, like always, it is not going to be an easy feat.
In the sequel to Marvel’s The Avengers, 2012, Ultron, an artificial-intelligence, is seeking to extinguish the human race. The Supreme Headquarters, International Espionage, Law-Enforcement Division, better known as S.H.I.E.L.D, must call in their team of superhuman heroes to save the day.
Iron Man, Captain America, the Hulk, Thor, Hawkeye and Black Widow assemble once more to bring peace back to the world in The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Joining the group in the new movie is Quicksilver with his superhuman speed, Scarlet Witch with her reality warping abilities and Vision with its multitude of android skills.
“I honestly believe it’s going to be better than the first one,” Joss Whedon, the director of both Avengers films, said in an interview at the MTV Movie Awards in April.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe has exploded in the last six years, starting with Iron Man in 2008. The film company has released ten movies so far with five more in the works, including The Avengers: Age of Ultron.
By far their highest profiting movie was the first Avengers movie, which brought in $1.5 billion. It ranked number three in the Internet Movie Database’s ‘Top 25 Most Profitable Movies of 2012’.
With only six months until the release of the film’s sequel, the fans are gearing up for another epic showdown.
One enthusiastic fan commented on YouTube, “I’ve gotta see this in the theatre! …I gotta leave my wife at home. She’s always talking!”
The second teaser trailer for Age of Ultron was made public Oct. 22, showing more than the first one that was aired at this year’s San Diego Comic Con.
“Everything in Age of Ultron is ramped up though. It kind of blew me away reading the script. I don’t know how Joss Whedon does it, but everyone has gone up another notch and the whole thing is bigger and more exciting and crazier. Yeah, he’s a genius,” Chris Hemsworth, who plays Thor, told H. Shaw-Williams in an interview for Screenrant.com.
A third Avengers movie is already in the process of being written, which will come after Marvel’s Ant-Man, 2015, and the final Captain America film, 2016.
The Avengers: Age of Ultron will reach theaters worldwide on May 1, 2015. Fans must wait in anticipation to meet the newest villain to reign terror upon the world. As Ultron says:
“There are no strings on me. Now I’m free.”
