Movie News: Avengers: Age of Ultron is coming in 2015
The Avengers sequel now has an official title.
Writer/director Joss Whedon revealed at Comic-Con on Saturday that The Avengers sequels will officially be titled Avengers: Age of Ultron. It will be based on Brian Michael Bendis’s recent Age of Ultron comic series.
So who is Ultron and what will he be up to? That’s a good question but here’s what I’ve gathered so far: Ultron is an artificial intelligence created by Avenger Henry Pym, AKA Ant-Man, that was initially created for good before it turns – like most AI eventually do – and decides all humanity must perish.
The storyline also deals with time travel with Wolverine and Spider-Man playing significant roles. Obviously, this may be too complicated for one film and Marvel Studios doesn’t currently have the rights to put Wolverine and Spider-Man on the big screen, so they’ll likely not be featured.
So that’s kind of where The Avengers sequel is headed next (with Thanos apparently being held until later) and that honestly sounds amazing. But it will be hard to top the first film, which somehow and someway actually turned out to be incredible.
Age of Ultron is expected to hit theaters on May 1, 2015.
