OH YEAH! Finally we get a date for the highly awaited follow up to The Avengers movie and it looks like it’ll be hitting our theatres at the end of April next year.
According to Buena Vista International, the distributor of the film, we should be able to whet our Marvel hero appetites on the above mentioned date. Of course, even though the date has been officially set, we could still expect some changes in the coming months but hopefully, keep your fingers cross, the April 30 2015 date stays.
So far, details on the story line for Avengers: Age of Ultron is still rather vague though it’s pretty obvious that the AI villain Ultron, played by James Spader, is the main baddie of the movie. Marvel did run a 10 issue series called Age of Ultron which was set in an alternate timeline in which Ultron ruled Earth and though there’s a possibility that certain elements of series might turn up in the movie, we’re thinking that it’s more of coincidence, and the fact that it’s a pretty cool title. There are some slight changes between the comic Ultron and movie Ultron. In the comics, Ultron is a creation of Hank Pym aka Ant-man/Giant-man/Yellow Jacket etc, who is basically an insane AI with delusions of grandeur. Since Hank Pym isn’t turning up anywhere in this Avengers movie, Ultron’s creator has shifted over to Iron Man, Tony Stark.
We could try to tell you more but we’re still short on details ourselves. So till we manage to dig up some more, why not enjoy some of these behind the scenes shots as well as official movie stills. That should tide you over till our next update.
Want more Marvel goodness? Then head over to the cinema and watch Guardians of the Galaxy. As our review will tell you, it’s awesome.Onwards to Pictures!
