Disney Release Full Synopsis for Avengers: Age of Ultron!

Posted by Unknown Thursday, September 18, 2014
Big, big, news here, folks! We now know the full synopsis for the biggest comic book movie followup ever, with Disney dishing Avenger: Age of Ultron details. Check it out below, followed by my impressions of what this all means for us fans of the first one:

avengers film series sequel starring robert downey jr
Marvel Studios presents "Avengers: Age of Ultron," the epic follow-up to the biggest [superhero] 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.
There are no big surprises or spoilers here. We've pretty much known all this already, but I find it interesting the mention of what Ultron's plans are: human extinction. Sure, that's a common theme when an evil power desires world domination, but the more interesting fact is that Ultron considers humanity dangerous, similar to what went down at the end of Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

What I like about this idea is that I don't completely disagree. We've just about screwed this planet up so badly we just might deserve to be taken out. I know director Joss Whedon sets up the idea that Ultron is simply doing what it's programmed to do and that this is the only way to make the world safe. How he makes us all care about whether the Avengers succeed in keeping the world safe won't come easy and will take a solid bit of writing.

Thoughts? Will this movie reach the same heights as the first? Will Whedon and company give us a great summer sequel? Sound off below.
