[News] ‘The Avengers 2′ is Titled ‘The Avengers: Age of Ultron’


Marvel showcased footage from their upcoming Phase 2 movies “Thor: The Dark World”,Captain America: The Winter Soldier” and “Guardians of the Galaxy” at the studio’s 2013 Comic-Con panel. However, it was all a buildup to the final reveal: the official title for writer-director Joss Whedon’s sequel to “The Avengers”, which is… wait for it… “The Avengers: Age of Ultron.”

Whedon took the stage in Hall H at the conclusion of Marvel’s Comic-Con panel, in order to introduce a brief teaser for the second Avengers movie, which is also the final installment in Phase 2 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The preview included material from the first Avengers film, spliced together with new footage (showing a man approaching an unidentified temple) and the reveal of CGI images that form Ultron’s face – followed by the official logo, which is featured as the header image for this article.

Ultron, for those not familiar, is a Marvel villain who was introduced back in the 1960s. The character – originally identified as Ultron-5, the living automaton – is the creation of Henry Pym (a.k.a. Ant-Man), a robot who developed self-awareness and intelligence, but then formed an intense hatred for its “father” and evolved into a supervillain.

As far as his general qualities are concerned: Ultron customarily possesses super-human intelligence and data-processing capabilities, among other “powers” that make him a formidable opponent for Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.

Meanwhile, Thor: The Dark World opens in theaters on November 8th, 2013, followed by Captain America: The Winter Soldier on April 4th, 2014, Guardians of the Galaxy on August 1st, 2014, The Avengers: Age of Ultron on May 1st, 2015 and Ant-Man on November 6th, 2015.
