More details surface on the origins of Ultron

07.17.2014

Given that the major villain of AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON has graced the cover of Entertainment Weekly, I supposed they figured that the layman would want to know more about him. They've now gone into some detail, which confirms earlier reports regarding Ultron and his drones, as well as details about a Stark party early on in the film. EW verifies that Ultron is Tony Stark's creation (as opposed to Hank Pym's) and was created to be the be-all, end-all of his "Iron Legion" which is reminiscent of Stark's drones in IRON MAN 3. Stark's plan to give the Avengers a bit of a break backfires when Ultron realizes that the key to peace is the destruction of humanity.

In Chris Evans' words:

A lot of times when Ultron starts talking, it’s beautiful. It’s really intelligent stuff. He’s out to do the things he wants to do because he’s disgusted with X, Y, and Z. You could probably sit down with Ultron and have a really intelligent conversation. He could blow your mind with his views. Yeah, and then kill you.

EW then goes into detail about a party scene at Stark tower. As extravagant as you might expect from Tony Stark, the party eventually dwindles down until just the Avengers remain. That's when the legionaries strike. Despite being seemingly unprepared, they make short work of their assailants, and Ultron addresses them. “I know you’re ‘good’ people. I know you mean well but you just didn’t think it through. There is only one path to peace . . . your extermination."

Of course, this only represents the early stages of Ultron. This sentient machine has the capacity to learn and grow, so I'm very excited to see his evolution throughout the film. The first AVENGERS was a lot of fun and showed us that Joss Whedon could assemble these heroes. Given the storyline for this film, as well as the natural progression of the characters (especially after the events of CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER), I'm very excited to see what Whedon will deliver with this installment.

AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON will commence on May 1, 2015.

Anybody these think Tony's going to bite the dust in this one? He almost sacrificed himself at the end of the first Avengers, but this time he might not walk away from his final battle with Ultron. It would change the entire direction of the MCU and show that else guys aren't unstoppable. Just a thought, but I keep getting that feeling whenever I look at photos of Stark from this movie.

There's one thing I don't get when it comes to the Hulk?

Ultron, and let's just say for fun because of the released art work, that Tony Starks "Hulk Buster" is in this movie. I can't see how either would be effective against the Hulk unless they were able to use their weapons to NEVER allow the Hulk to get his hands on them. They are robots, they don't have super powers, so if Hulk get's his hands on them, he would literally be able to tear them in half, smash them to pieces, and throw them to Jupiter. Even though the movie didn't live up to

being a robot might be what makes Ultron so formidable. in the end, the robot is just a shell and Ultron is an abstract computer program. how can the Hulk smash that?

The original Hank Pym story involved time travel didn't it? Because Ultron won, and the only way to stop him was to prevent his creation. I wonder how they're going to handle that aspect. This and Days of Future Past already share one thing in common with Quicksilver, it would be weird if they also shared a time travel plot..

I just hope Hulk gets a couple of great scenes to go head to head with Ultron.

I've noticed lately that Marvel movies have a way of retroactively making previous movies even better! The Winter Soldier shed some light on Senator Stern and why he acted like a douche in Iron Man 2, while also filling in some major characterization for Bucky that was missing in The First Avenger. Now Avengers 2 is going to piggyback off of Iron Man 3 and the use of Tony's drones, and how that affects the natural progression of Tony's arc. Everything I hear about this movie makes me more and

Sounds great! Tony Starks creates Ultron, get some drone action in there with The Avengers, some Hulk action, the Vision storyline... my only problem with all this that I really don't see how Quicksilver and The Scarlet Witch fit in all of this. Might drag a tight couple of hours into the standard overlong 2,5 hours.

But we'll see.
