Joss Whedon’s Comic-Con interview has sent Marvel fans wild as he explained who will be the primary villain for the sequel to 2012’s superhero blockbuster, Avengers Assemble.
Ultron has played a vital part in the Marvel universe, constantly popping up to battle with The Avengers over the years. He is a robot, which was created by Dr. Hank Pym (Ant Man), who instead of obeying his creator, decided to rebel and pledge a mission to destroy the entire human race. Although a robot, Ultron does have a human conscience, and is also highly intellectual, that, mixed with his terrifying, metallic suit and mask, makes him a villain worthy of the next Avengers film. What is also great about the introduction of Ultron is that, in the original origins, he creates his own android named Vision, who is one of the most famous Avengers from the comics, and teams up with the group after switching sides.
However the origin of Ultron is going to differ greatly from that of the comic books, for example he will not be created by Dr. Hank Pym, because Edgar Wright’s ‘Ant-Man’ is not going to be released until after Avengers 2. So another origin for Ultron is going to be written, perhaps one which includes Tony Stark’s discard of his Arc Reactor, some rumours are saying.
Avengers: Age of Ultron is set to be released in 2015.
