Stop what you are doing! The latest news from Marvel HQ has come into our grasps and it has made us so intensely excited. The scary thing is? It’s only a small blurb about the film and yet we’re already adorned in our Captain America costume and calling our friends whispering one word; Assemble. I guess what it means is that with a synopsis in our grasps we are actually on our way to receiving a trailer and footage! What will that mean? It means that we are just a day closer and knowing exactly what it entails is titillating to say the least.
“Marvel Studios presents “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time. When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.
Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” stars Robert Downey Jr., who returns as Iron Man, along with Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk. Together with Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, and with the additional support of Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill, the team must reassemble to defeat James Spader as Ultron, a terrifying technological villain hell-bent on human extinction. Along the way, they confront two mysterious and powerful newcomers, Wanda Maximoff, played by Elizabeth Olsen, and Pietro Maximoff, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and meet an old friend in a new form when Paul Bettany becomes Vision. Written and directed by Joss Whedon and produced by Kevin Feige, Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” is based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series “The Avengers,” first published in 1963. Get set for an action-packed thrill ride when The Avengers return in Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” on May 1, 2015”
What this tells us about the latest in the franchise is that not only is Stark’s intellectual arrogance directly causes the word shattering events. And that “old friend in a new form” might confirms that JARVIS will be turned into Vision (although, they could just be talking about Bettany. The thrilling sequel is hotly anticipated so seeing our favourites come back and hopefully, they’ll talk about what they’ve been up to (“oh hey, where were you when I saved the world?”)
Although, the term mightiest heroes for some reason stinks of merchandise for children, the excitement is genuinely there. So if you don’t mind, we are going to hibernate until next year and we can finally see this in cinemas.
