‘Avengers’ Sequel To Be Called ‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron’ And Be About A Sassy Robot Named Ultron

Okay, so this one is kinda curvy so pay attention. Joss Whedon announced at Comic-Con that his Avengers sequel will be titled Age of Ultron, which is also the name of a recent Marvel Comics series. But, the movie only shares similarity with the comic in title only. Ultron, itself, is the name of an evil, indestructible robot created by Ant-Man that hates the living shit out of the Avengers. Ant-Man will not appear in the film, rather he will be introduced in his own solo film so Ultron will have a different daddy this time. Whedon has commented, “We’re doing our own version of the origin story of Ultron … We’re crafting our own version of it where his own origin comes more directly from the Avengers we already know about.”

Which likely points to Tony Stark creating the robot with the intentions of it taking on his Iron Manning duties, have it go amok, and then deciding he’d better just continue to Iron Man because Don Cheadle can only do so much. Also, I have a feeling that Vin Diesel will play Giant Man. (MTV)
