Fans blew up with excitement when Joss Whedon announced at at Comic-Con that the title of the Avengers sequel would be Avengers: Age of Ultron. The movie may not follow the comic series that the title comes from, but Ultron is still going to be a badass character in the film.
In a recent interview with EW, Whedon talks about the self-aware robot, and what we can expect to see from him in the film. For those of you not really familiar with Ultron, some of his abilities include super-human strength, speed, stamina, durability, flight, mind control, a coma ray, and of course, genius intellect. Here's what the director had to say,
"I knew right away what I wanted to do with him. He’s always trying to destroy the Avengers, goddamn it. He’s got a bee in his bonnet. He’s not a happy guy, which means he’s an interesting guy. He’s got pain. And the way that manifests is not going to be standard robot stuff. So we’ll take away some of those powers because, at some point, everybody becomes magic, and I already have someone who’s a witch.
As a character I love [Ultron], because he’s so pissed off.”
It's going to be so awesome to see what Whedon does with this thing! The project is gearing up for production, and the plan is to start shooting in February of 2014. The movie will eventually be released on May 1st, 2015.
