It’s no secret Marvel comic book heroes and villains have taken over planet earth, with amazing movies,videos, comics and special events like comic cons and others catering to “nerds” (of which I’m a proud member).
The highly anticipated sequel to the blockbuster hit The Avengers, Avengers: Age of Ultron, is set to premiere May 1st, in theatres across the U.S. Written by the legendary Joss Whedon and produced by Kevin Fege, p.g.a., Avengers: Age of Ultron is based on the 1963 comic. Louis D’Esposito, Alan Fine, Victoria Alonso, Jeremy Latcham, Patricia Whitcher, Stan Lee and Jon Favreau serve as executive producers.
The cast returns, including Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), the sexy Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Mark Ruffalo (Hulk) and Chris Evans as Captain America. Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow is set to wreak a little havoc and Jeremy Renner returns as Hawkeye. Additionally the cast rounds out with Don Cheadle (James Rhodes/War Machine), Cobie Smulders (Agent Maria Hill), Stellan Skarsgård (Erik Selvig) and of course, the incredible Samuel L. Jackson who will reprise his role as Nick Fury. Those of you who love The Blacklist will be pleased to see James Spader as Ultron, a terrifying technological villain hell-bent on human extinction, who must be defeated by our heroes. There are two mysterious and powerful newcomers, Pietro and Amanda Maximoff, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen. While the team is set to confront them, they meet an old friend in a new form when Paul Bettany becomes Vision.
When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.
