First Look: Captain America, Thor, Black Widow & More In 'Avengers: Age Of Ultron'

After saving the world a couple of times already, you would understand if the folks in The Avengers might want to take a break, maybe kick their feet up and go on a Netflix binge. But can a hero really take a day off? That’s the question that seems to underscore the forthcoming “The Avengers: Age Of Ultron,” which is gearing up for Comic-Con by taking the cover of the latest edition of Entertainment Weekly.

“…abdication is apt, but I think it’s also about recognizing limitations,” Robert Downey Jr. told the magazine. “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.” But trauma or not, The Avengers will be called back into action when Tony Stark’s plans to automize heroics backfires on him, when his creation, Ultron, decides that humans are their own worst enemy.

“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!’” writer/director Joss Whedon said, adding: “He’s on a mission. He wants to save us.”

Of course, as with all sequels, that means this one is going to be big, and with the Hulkbuster suit already teased, Kevin Feige is promising fans they’ll get bang for their buck. “There are a lot of scenes that you should be getting excited about. That is certainly one of them,” he recently told press (via Latino Review). “I think I said a long time ago when Joss [Whedon] first did his six-page or 10-page outline for Avengers, there was a lot of work and the movie’s adapted quite a bit since then, but there were like six or seven signature things just in that. I said ‘Joss, even if we don’t do anything else. Just do these seven things, that’s enough for the movie. Now let’s get to work and put it all together.’ Those things are in the movie and are amazing, of which that sequence is one.”

And we’ll see how that all plays out next year on May 1, 2015. Full cover below and more gallery images from EW.

It's like iron man is the one who saved them all in the first avengers and in this one he is the one who caused it.

Tired of Aaron Tyler-Johnson


Are they fighting more Iron Man like robots? Seems like if Iron Man is in the movie, he's fighting something similar to himself… ugh.


No Loki no watchi


Is it just me or does Thor look grungier with each movie? Does he wash his hair ever?


oh cool are they fighting more faceless robots?! thats so inventive!!

bill hash

just hope it isn't like the cartoon where they tell ultron he can't destroy humans for their illogicity(hey it's better than strategery :-)) because humans designed Ultron so he has to be illogical and shuts himself off. Poor guy with Tony Stark as a father creator no wonder he was messed up


Great. More fanboy pandering.
