The Avengers 2 Update

Marvels Hero Fight Club

With The Avengers 2 release date not until May 2015, some might say kick starting the campaign trail at this early stage might be a little premature. However, that has not stopped director Joss Whedon speaking out about his plans for the Avengers 2 movie and more specifically who the formidable Avengers 2 villain is. After the closing credits of the first film, we got a glimpse of a large alien character who looked to be The Avengers team’s next foe, naturally the internet was a buzz with speculation of who this character was and how he would feature in the new film. We are led to believe that character was Thanos and whilst he still may play a part in the sequel, Whedon has announced that the main villain will be none other than Super-Robot Ultron.

While this is an exciting prospect, proving a real challenge for the Avengers characters, it also presents a problem for the screenwriters. The challenge being, how do they turn a robot that can do almost anything into an interesting on-screen character.

Ultrons Powers and Abilities include;

Superhuman levels of strength, speed, stamina, durability, reflexes; flight at subsonic speeds, various offensive weapons such as concussive blasts of energy fired from its optical sensors and hands, and an “encephalo-ray”, which places victims into a deathlike coma. The latter ray also allows Ultron to mesmerize and mind-control victims, or implant subliminal hypnotic commands within their minds to be enacted at a later time. Ultron also has the ability to convert electromagnetic radiation into electrical energy for use or storage.

Whedon says; “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 [ Scarlet Witch] who’s a witch.”

He also went on to say, he will be careful “to ground [Ultron] while still evoking that guy.” And like a certain giant green Hulk Avenger, it sounds like large doses of rage will be key to his personality. “As a character I love [Ultron],” Whedon says, “because he’s so pissed off.”

The Avengers 2: Age of Ultron is released on 1 May 2015
