Avengers 2: First look at Ultron

Entertainment Weekly has revealed a lot of new information about Marvel Studios upcoming blockbuster, Avengers: Age of Ultron, including our first look at the title villain, Ultron.

EW has now revealed that rather than following comic book canon, Ultron will be the creation of Tony Stark. Tony builds Ultron to protect the world and give the Avengers a break, but things don’t all go according to plan.

“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!’” director Joss Whedon said. “He’s on a mission. He wants to save us.”

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I feel like Marvel Studios just keep kicking goals and this is set to be another one. What do you think of our new movie villain? Have they done him justice? Sound off in the comments.

Avengers: Age of Ultron is set for release on May 1, 2015.

    It’s an interesting change, but a change I don’t like. I just wish they stuck to the comic lore more often.
