    The concept art and the footage description is giving me a real Farscape vibe for GotG. That seems entirely appropriate. Cosmic Marvel should always be a little bit bonkers.

    Ultron in Avengers II? Hell yeah!

    Though Ultron before Ant-man does seem odd. I wonder if it's possible that Ultron will actually be tied to Thanos or the Kree. It could be revealed at the very end to be a sentient virus with the sole purpose of exterminating a planet or something along those lines, or maybe even a rogue Kree AI that escapes to Earth and hopes to use it as a staging ground for universal conquest. Divorcing Ultron from Hank Pym would disappoint me on some level but I'm willing to forgive them if them if Whedon is able to come up with something sufficiently interesting or clever.

    My concern is that Ultron as the villain could result in a fuckton of disaster porn and body count.

    because ant-man is so hypothetically silly it seems like ant-man's gonna be introduced in age of ultron before his own movie

    The Battle of New York showed Whedon can handle massive destruction without making it disaster porn. But It's inevitable that Ultron is going to have a large bodycount - the dude isn't interested in conquering humanity it wants to destroy us.

    Well then they'll have to call someone to avenge all those innocents lost, now wont they?

    Ugh

    I was reading some interesting speculation that they'll just make Ultron Tony's mistake rather than Hank's.

    Jarvis is already a ridiculously advanced AI. The suits could function pretty well autonomously in IM3.

    I love how much Uproxx love Arrow.

    Anyway, they're reporting that the original Suicide Squad will appear this season. Michael Jai White will play Bronze Tiger, and that's just swell.

    I would not be down for that. I don't mind if Jarvis is involved in some way but I don't really care for making it Tony's fault. I feel like there's going to have to be some sort of cosmic element involved in Ultron's origin too.

    Possibly the X factor that turns Ultron into a true sentient AI.

    I don't really think that's why. Wright has always wanted his movie to be about Lang

    At least we're getting a movie to set up Pym and give him a big enough mistake to want to give up the mantle

    He's being introduced in Age of Ultron instead of someone else's movie

    No, you see, the TRUE Batman won't kill, even when pushed to the limit.

    It'll be a King Solomon thing.

    The fight is a secret test of character. Whoever kills the other
    murdered the real Batman.

    You're wrong! Batman and Robin will never die.

    He goes to this after-life style void, and his parents are there, and his father's all 'Bruce... don't be afraid.' Then in the real world he's all 'flesh wounds!' and gets back up. It's an 'all a dream or was it?' moment.

    I'm guessing Age of Ultron will introduce Hank Pym as a scientist extrodinair, with all sorts of tech like a shrinking suit, insect control and Ultron. He might even join the fight a bit, but decide not to be a superhero after that.

    We know Ant-Man is going to be about Scott Lang, so with Hank Pym established in Age of Ultron, it'll make a bit more sense when Lang steals his suit.

    Damn, I had a reply to something when I started catching up on this thread, but have now forgotten it!

    Why you guys and gals gotta jump 90 posts while I'm at work! :P

    edit: Oh I remembered one of them, Helicarriers crashing aren't near as tradition as Quinjets crashing, we need some Quinjets crashing in the Savage Land asap!

    Also Ultron could feasably have a high body count and nobody can complain

    since the most critically acclaimed, beloved and best Ultron story of all time had him entirely wiping out the population of a small country

    Ultron is that scary

    To heck with one country. In Annihilation: Conquest Ultron led the Phalanx to destroy most of the Kree Empire. Which, of course, gives another possible Non-Hank origin for Ultron in Avengers 2. Have Ultron as an AI background character in Guardians of the Galaxy (much like Jarvis in Iron Man) and then show Ultron escaping and arriving on Earth in the post movie sneak peak.

    nah, he needs to originate on earth to set up Hank Pym as the person Scott Lang steals the Ant-Man tech from.

    also because "Hank Pym accidentally created mankind's greatest enemy" is too good to pass up.

    Vision easy enough to sneak in too, he's just the scout that they convert before Ultron arrives ( or converts in time to turn the tides )

    Altho who's the brain imprint going to be, will he even get one without Simon Williams?

    He didn't in the recent Avengers toon and it didn't seem to take away much from the character. He can be the android struggling with humanity without having human remnants in his robot brain.

    Adding in Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver is going to be tough. Maybe they're residents of whatever country Ultron decimates?

    Its going to be interesting to see how Joss Whedon handles this. If he can pull off the hat trick, I will be quite impressed. Expectations for Avengers 2 are going to be astronomical.

    Probably low level prison guards, given the the footage descriptions.

  • MetalMagusMetalMagus Too Serious Registered User regular
    It will be interesting if the Kree and Nova Corps are kept looking "human." Wonder if they'll bother explaining any of it.

    Whedon says no Pym in Avengers 2, they're doing their own take on Ultrons origin. Hawkeye is confirmed to be back.

    Apparently Peter Quill has been in space for quite some time. Look at the item right in front of his helmet:

    Judging from the description of the footage I think that is Drax's.
