AVENGERS Sequel And Villain Announced! It Is The AGE OF ULTRON!
Not to be outdone by the Saturday morning announcement of the Batman and Superman join-up in Man of Steel 2 Marvel Studios finished off their panel last night with an announcement from writer-director Joss Whedon. The second Avengers film, due out Summer of 2015, will be called Avengers Age of Ultron!
As I have come to understand it, this is a recent story arc over 10 issues, and the Marvel Universe has been destroyed by one of the Avengers' nemeses Ultron. Ultron is an artificial intelligence created in a robotic body by Henry Pym (Ant-Man) for the greater good. But as A.I's are inclined to do, it sets out to destroy humanity. Oh, who will save us?
Apparently Wolverine gets sent back in time to kill Pym before he can make Ultron. There is someone else named Vision? Boy. Good thing this isn't coming out for a couple more Summers. It gives me enough time to catch up on this story arc, only to find out what they will not include in it when the movie comes out.
