Years from now, when kids brush the dust off their grandparents Blu-Ray collection and come across one particular title, reading aloud details on the back of the case, the old timers will say to them, “I remember that, I was there kids. I was there when Marvel revealed the official synopsis for Avengers: Age of Ultron. Now get out this damn loft, this place messes with my allergies.”
Yes as was revealed yesterday by the studio, the almost full details of the only film from Marvel we’re really fussed about spread like wildfire, taking all of a minute for fans to decipher some clever wording that confirm what they guessed all along. Read below and see if you can join the dots…
Marvel Studios presents “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time. When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.
Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” stars Robert Downey Jr., who returns as Iron Man, along with Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk. Together with Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, and with the additional support of Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill, the team must reassemble to defeat James Spader as Ultron, a terrifying technological villain hell bent on human extinction. Along the way, they confront two mysterious and powerful newcomers, Wanda Maximoff, played by Elizabeth Olsen, and Pietro Maximoff, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and meet an old friend in a new form when Paul Bettany becomes Vision.
Spotted a few important details did you? You’re not the only ones. As many of you Marvel-ous followers will already know Paul Bettany does the voice for Stark’s witty computer aid J.A.R.V.I.S. and has done since the very first Iron Man film. This would suggest that our hero transforms his old mate into a new ally for the Avengers to face off against Spader’s wired nut job, Ultron and save the day. Either that or someone just went a bit crazy at the keyboard and will probably be asked to leave the Marvel building some time soon.
We can only wait to get a Vision and the rest of the costumed do-gooders when Avengers: Age of Ultron arrives in cinemas April 24, 2015.
