Avengers: Age of Ultron: First Look at Ultron, Iron Man & Captain America

Posted by The Daily Zombies Thursday, July 17, 2014

Ahead of next week's much-anticipated Marvel Studios Panel at Hall H of Comic-Con, we have our first close look at Avengers: Age of Ultron courtesy of this week's Comic-Con edition of Entertainment Weekly

Brace yourself. Easily atop the treacherous peak of most anticipated films of 2015 (a most treacherous year in tentpole cinema by the way), Avengers: Age of Ultron is no doubt the pinnacle of Marvel Studios' box office-stomping Phase Two following next month's Guardians of the Galaxy.

With San Diego Comic-Con set to kick off next week, we are fully anticipating some awe-inspiring Avengers goodness at the Marvel Studios Panel at Hall H given the pedigree of Marvel's showmanship during the past few Comic-Cons. And here to entice us further on what awaits us in the eleventh installment of Marvel Cinematic Universe, Entertainment Weekly is here to whet our appetite with the cover of this week's Comic-Con edition of the magazine: The first ever unveiling of post-Iron Man 3 Iron Man, post-Winter Soldier Captain America, and most important of all, Ultron, or shall we say Ultrons?

With no further ado, here's the cover featuring new outfits for both Stark and Cap, with Ultron right smack in the middle and some Ultron-bots in the background.

Some spoilers from the magazine ahead.

For those still speculating if Ultron will be built by Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark given how the teaser trailer of last year's Comic-Con hinted how the Ultron armor appear to be spawned from Iron Man's armor, speculate no more.

From Downey Jr.:

“What you said about abdication is apt, but I think it’s also about recognizing limitations. The downside of self-sacrifice is that if you make it back, you’ve been out there on the spit and you’ve been turned a couple times and you feel a little burned and traumatized.”

Following the events of Iron Man 3, Stark invented the self-aware robot played by James Spader via performance capture) to keep himself from taking on the helm of Iron Man until its ultra intellect pushed further to determine that human beings are the true problem on Earth.

Ultron (played by James Spader through performance-capture technology) lacks the human touch, and his superior intellect quickly determines that life on Earth would go a lot smoother if he just got rid of Public Enemy No. 1: Human beings. “Ultron sees the big picture and he goes, ‘Okay, we need radical change, which will be violent and appalling, in order to make everything better’; he’s not just going ‘Muhaha, soon I’ll rule!’” Whedon says, rubbing his hands together. “He’s on a mission,” the filmmaker adds, and smiles thinly. “He wants to save us.”

We are quite certain that there will be more information unveiled in the magazine so do hit the newsstand this weekend to pick up the special Comic-Con edition of Entertainment Weekly

Meanwhile, on other news releases of the film, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige discussed at length with IGN on the status of the Mighty Avengers in the sequel following the game-changing event of Captain America: The Winter Soldier:

“Last time we saw Stark Tower, from The Avengers, it had gotten beat up a little bit thanks to Hulk and thanks to Loki and the Chituari, and Pepper and Tony were standing over a table looking at plans” he explained. “That’s where we pulled out and all the letters had fallen away except the ‘A’ in Stark. So what they were doing was retro-fitting for The Avengers. And that’s what we see in this next film.
“S.H.I.E.L.D. is gone – for people who are following along. S.H.I.E.L.D. was disbanded and brought down at the end of The Winter Soldier because it turned out to not be the best organisation ever. So Tony’s bank-rolling The Avengers now. And he’s bank-rolling their headquarters. So it’s now Avengers Tower.

“Tony designed it so in addition to a hanger for a brand-new Quinjet, laboratories, places where he can build and store his Iron Man suits, there are I believe two bars. Beautiful multiple space living rooms which are perfect for parties and social gatherings. But it’s a primary location in the film this time around.”

When asked if asked the casting of Paul Bettany as Vision is by coincidence or design since Bettany has already been a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe since the first Iron Man as Tony Stark's faithful artificial intelligence butler, J.A.R.V.I.S., Whedon plainly said, "It’s not coincidence. And I’m not going to tell you any more about The Vision."

Downey revealed more though: "Things only happen arbitrarily in Kevin Feige’s Marvel universe by mistake, and I think he’s maybe made two mistakes and they weren’t really in the movies. They were more in like the Easter eggs early on. Things that he didn’t have as much final say over but would nowadays." 

Update: Courtesy of Entertainment Weekly, here are some red hot new images from the film.

Avengers: Age of Ultron is currently scheduled for release on May 1, 2015 in 2D and IMAX 3D.
