Rumor: Want to know what happens in the opening sequence of Avengers 2
It is a safe bet to assume that we will be seeing a teaser for AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON attached to GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY this August. It is probably also safe to assume that whatever footage we will see is going to be repeated ad nauseum in every media outlet until the release of Joss Whedon's film. Until then, like STAR WARS: EPISODE VII, every little tidbit will make an impact, especially when they proclaim to be plot details.
While the scoops from Latino Review can be hit or miss, they have been consistently solid as of late. Still, these are still rumors and could turn out to be entire bullshit. But, they could be entertaining bullshit in the interim. At the very least, these rumors seem to compliment our own sources regarding AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON.
Citing confirmation from sources, the follow claims to be from the opening twenty minutes of AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON.
- The movie opens immediately following the stinger sequence featuring Baron Von Strucker, Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen)
- Von Strucker, Scarlet Witch, and Quicksilver have a massive battle versus The Avengers
- Von Strucker has a Chitauri ship and weapons
- The Avengers win and have a party at Avengers Tower where everyone tries to pick up Mjolnir, including Rhodey
- Captain America is able to move the hammer just a little bit
- Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) and Thor are no longer together and she is dating Chris O'Dowd's character from THE DARK WORLD.
Now, if all of that isn't enough, check out who the new power couple will be in AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON.
[In] the party scene at Avengers Tower, we discover that Banner and Black Widow kinda have a thing for each other. Banner is afraid to consummate anything with her for fear of hulking out and hurting her. He doesn't trust himself. OUCH! Talk about blue balls, in this case hulk green, hence leading to his "It's complicated" facebook status update this morning.
All of this sounds pretty much spot on with what I was expecting from the opening of the film. What it does not shed any light on is how significant Baron Von Strucker is to the other plot elements. It also gives no indication as to how Scarlet Witch or Quicksilver join the team. It also seems odd after the very happy ending of THOR: THE DARK WORLD where Thor has finally sacrificed everything to be with Jane that they are suddenly apart.
If anything, I just hope the party scene stays in the film as well as the romantic subplot between Banner and Black Widow. That could make for a very interesting spin-off film, wouldn't you say? Don't forget to check out our spoilery tidbits regarding the film.
