The Marvel cinematic universe has been churning out quality film and quality film these days. The one sequel we’re very much looking forward to seeing is the sequel to the 1st Avengers film, Age of Ultron. The movie is currently in production, but several pics of the set and actors in action have made the rounds.
Entertainment Weekly has given fans an even cooler piece of visual info to delve into – the 1st official pic of Ultron. And right beside him is Iron Man and Captain America, one of whom is partly responsible for this robotic menace. Not only will this new issue of EW provide us with more pics of this massive sequel, it will also offer up some details on the film’s multiple baddies and Ultron’s abilty to take on different forms.
Check out the awesome cover pic and official plot details below:
Here’s a sample of what director Joss Whedon had to say about Tony Stark’s master plan and how it pertains to Ultron:
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.
The only problem? Ultron (played by James Spader through performance-capture technology) lacks the human touch, and his superior intellect quickly determines that life on Earth would go a lot smoother if he just got rid of Public Enemy No. 1: Human beings. “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 says, rubbing his hands together.
“He’s on a mission,” the filmmaker adds, and smiles thinly. “He wants to save us.”
