The Avengers: Age of Ultron

When Joss Whedon revealed that Marvel's sequel to The Avengers was officially titled The Avengers: Age of Ultron, fans freaked out, mostly because the reveal of the title came from a cool little promo trailer. The video featured voiceover of lines from the various superheroes from the 2012 blockbuster superhero ensemble, accompanied by a visual of Tony Stark's Iron Man helmet smashing against some unknown piece of metal. Then it was revealed that it was the helmet of the villain Ultron on the receiving end of the metal mashing. Now that video is online for your viewing pleasure, along with Whedon's Comic-Con appearance.

Here's The Avengers: Age of Ultron title reveal from the JARVIS iPhone app (via MoviePilot):

It's the use of Iron Man's helmet being smashed into Ultron's that has fans thinking that Tony Stark will have a hand in creating Ultron somehow, since Hank Pym (Ant-Man) has been confirmed to not be the villain's creator (since his film won't arrive until after the sequel hits theaters). Theories have thought that Stark's artificial intelligence assistant JARVIS might go rogue, but the casting of James Spader as Ultron kind of put the kibosh on that. But since Paul Bettany's voice isn't exactly menacing, maybe he will evolve into Spader's more intimidating tones. We'll find out sometime down the road, so stay tuned for updates.

    i don't understand why is The Avengers is such a loved movie ? really it's mediocre , i hope that in the sequel we gonna see more action and drama . without Hulk , The Avengers is nothing . so much thanks to The Green Big Man ;)
    • bugger_butt
      It's loved because it's a very fun movie. The Sequel should be even better.
      • Jon Odishaw
        Precisely. It's no masterpiece, it's just good old fashioned fun.
        • cobrazombie
          I understand fun. I just thought it was bland and noisy.
          • Dominic
            ALSO ALSO , it's loved because of what IT IS , the 1st movie about one of the collection of heroes from CB universes .So u might hate it as a MOVIE , but as a Movie Event if was off the charts . The hereos blended together well ... all movies are noisy nowadays esp. ones with grand battles over big cities . ...bland ? HARDLY , at least for fans of the Avengers and the Marvel universe in general .... which is exactly why DC fans want The Justice League .. Cap of course was written bland , but nobody else

            Everyone's allowed their opinion. I though avatar was garbage but most people would disagree with me.
          • Chris Groves
            I personally love Avatar and The Avengers. I'm a huge mark for spectacle cinema. I can enjoy small dramas, but seeing something grand and spectacular is what I enjoy most. I don't just like big movies though, John Carter, Battleship, Transformers...those aren't really for me. Just a bit too brainless or otherwise 'not good' for me.
          • Jon Odishaw
            Now You see That's why I loved Prometheus. A lot of people hated it but it was a grand Spectacle in my eyes.
          • Chris Groves
            I've been torn on that film ever since I saw it opening night. It was 70% 'thoughtful, interesting sci-fi' and 30% 'dumb monster movie'...in my opinion it completely fell apart in the last act.
    • Such heroic nonsense
      I agree. My hats off to Joss Whedon for putting together a fun movie, but nothing about it was epic though.
      • Chris Groves
        Nothing about it? Not even the long tracking shot that moved through the battle, from one character to the next? Not epic at all? I mean, there are definitely places for improvement with a sequel, and Whedon has even said that himself, but to say there was "nothing" epic about the first film is a little bit much.
    • Fidel Reyes
      I think the epic thing about it was the concept of the interconnected movies(and Hulk and the shot of the Avengers assembling along with the Alan Silvestri score), I see it as there was no deeper characterization of characters (except Hulk) in the Avengers since most characters had already been characterized in their own movies, I guess the point of the movie was to introduce the avengers and make it a fun movie, in order words actually make it work. I feel that this one will be better, a Whedon says it will be more global and sci fi like.
  • Joe_poo
    ULTRON!!! He is going to be so badass, I hope! =D
  • ali3000
    Since when are lame ass teasers a "must watch..?"
    • bugger_butt
      They want to see how many trolls post to the boards.
      • ali3000
        Did I offend a fanboy?
        • Chris Groves
          No, you were pretty much just being a jerk all around.
          • ali3000
            How was I being a jerk..? All I said was the teaser was shitty.
  • David Diaz
    That would have been fun to see live with the audiences' reaction
  • JBrotsis
    Now release the comic con footage of GOTG...PLEASSSSEEEE!!!!!!!!!!
  • mooreworthy
    That would have awesome to feel the energy in that room.
  • DAVIDPD
    I am still a little sad Pym won't be responsible for Ultron, but I am curious on it will be born.
  • toonfed
    if they show us a piece of metal saying is an Ultron's finger, we'll react excited. We're fans and we love it
  • dawko
    Why is this must-watch?
  • shane willett
