During this year’s Comic-Con, Joss Whedon revealed a teaser for Avengers: Age of Ultron. It doesn’t show much, but it’s the first time we’ve seen footage of the film’s villain Ultron.
The Avengers: Age of Ultron’s release date is set for May 1, 2015. Before then, fans may wish to delve into who Ultron is and how he will be used in The Avengers sequel. In this teaser we get a look at his face/mask in the final few seconds of the video below.
During Comic-Con, Whedon took the stage at the very end of Marvel’s Comic-Con panel and said, “I have nothing to say, I just have one thing to add. Roll it.” The audience was then treated to the first teaser for The Avengers 2, with the official title being revealed as The Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Ultron is a villain that has been woven throughout The Avengers’ story since he was revealed in the comics in 1968. What we’re thinking is Marvel, despite already planning Ant-Man’s solo film release in 2015, decided that they could strengthen his character and film by tying him to The Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Marvel recently announced that James Spader would be voicing Ultron in The Avengers’ sequel, which made us think that Jarvis wouldn’t turn into Ultron, but after seeing that helmet turn into Ultron’s it certainly looks like it could still happen.
Fans may also remember that we saw somewhat of an evil side in Jarvis in these early cinematics that were created for The Avengers. We’ll have to wait and see how Ultron’s story pans out.
While his origins will be revamped by Joss Whedon, this footage opens up all kinds of questions about how he will be integrated into The Avengers’ sequel. Seeing one of Iron Man’s suits turning into Ultron’s mask gets us very excited. Let us know what you think of the teaser!
