First Look: Ultron & Army Revealed in 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron'
We're bound to get a huge first look at The Avengers: Age of Ultron next week at Comic-Con in San Diego, but until then we have our first look at the titular villain and his robot army thanks to the new cover of Entertainment Weekly. James Spader plays the bad buy, but there's no site of him since Ulton just looks like an alien version of Iron Man. Speaking of which, the cover also features a glimpse at a new suit for Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and also his patriotic partner Captain America (Chris Evans). Expect some more images to surface soon and plenty more news tom come out of Comic-Con next week. Look now!
Here's the new cover of Entertainment Weekly for Joss Whedon's The Avengers: Age of Ultron:
The Avengers: Age of Ultron is again directed by Joss Whedon, and here's what EW says about the film's plot: "For better or worse (trust us, it’s worse), his Tony Stark has devised a plan that won’t require him to put on the Iron Man suit anymore, and should allow Captain America, Thor, Black Widow, Hawkeye, and the Hulk to get some much needed R&R as well. His solution is Ultron, self-aware, self-teaching, artificial intelligence designed to help assess threats, and direct Stark’s Iron Legion of drones to battle evildoers instead."
But of course, that doesn't exactly go according to plan as Ultron is smart enough to figure out that life on Earth would be much easier if human beings weren't messing everything up. Whedon explains, "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!’” The story also adds that Ultron can be uploaded to various locations with ease and he can recreate himself in different forms, making him bigger, faster and stronger, and certainly a formidable opponent for The Avengers. Stay tuned to find out what Marvel shows us in Hall H at Comic-Con next week. Looking good?
