Joss Whedon unveiled the end result of Phase 2, as the Avengers are heading for a showdown with the mechanical maniacal monstrosity known as Ultron. According to Marvel lore, Ultron is the living automaton and the creation of Dr. Henry Pym. Ultron based his brain patterns on his creator’s but overtime, he began to exhibit rebellious tendencies and begin to “think” for itself. Overtime, Ultron learns how to rebuild itself, activate itself and upgrade itself to the point where it finds that humanity is a flawed species and must be destroyed. Ultron’s abilities include superhuman strength, speed, stamina, durability and reflexes, he is also able to fly at supersonic speeds. What makes Ultron really dangerous is that he not only has a genius intellect, he also has an outer armor made from the indestructible material known as adamantium (sound familiar “X-Men” fans?).
“The Avengers: Age of Ultron,” is set for release in 2015, starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemmsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and Samuel L. Jackson.
