Gathering “Earth’s Mightiest Heroes” and putting them in a movie together could have been a huge failure for Marvel’s Cinematic Universe.
Thankfully, that wasn’t the case—Joss Whedon did a pretty good job and made a great movie for us to geek out over. But that was all the way back in 2012. Fast-forward to 2015 and we’re getting the next installment.
Yes, The Avengers: Age of Ultron will be coming to a theatre near you on May 1st! Marvel has released trailers complete with a spine-chilling rendition of “Got No Strings” from Pinocchio. Not sure how a Disney classic can be creepy? Search up the trailer. You won’t be disappointed.
The Avengers crew and actors will be back along with Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Quicksilver and Elizabeth Olsen as The Scarlet Witch. (Let the awesomeness ensue.) Also, to my fellow Loki fans, Tom Hiddleston will be reprising his role as the god of mischief in this movie.
This film will bring in a new villain: an Artificial Intelligence created unwittingly by Tony Stark named Ultron. He has quite the god complex and wants to bring peace to earth. There’s just one problem: he wants to achieve his goals by getting rid of the human race. Not the best plan—just look at how messing with the humans went for Loki.
If you were upset about the absence of a Black Widow movie, this won’t quite make up for that…but there will be a lot of Natasha’s backstory in this movie. Also, Hawkeye will get more than twelve minutes of screen time!
Whether you’re a huge Marvel fan or are just looking for something to do in May, you can watch this movie without having watched any of the other Marvel films. It’ll have a little something that everyone can enjoy, so there go any excuses you may have had about not seeing it. ★彡
