Some potentially cool plot details from Avengers: Age of Ultron

May 19th, 2014 by Marc Comments

With Avengers: Age of Ultron less than a year away – wha?! – news and rumours are raining down, and some of them are well worth a listen.

JoBlo are reporting that they have some major insider info on women of the things we can expect to see in the much-anticipated sequel.


The insider says that Ultron will have three different looks in the movie – although we knew this already – but gives more details: “Ultron will appear in three different states due to his need to constantly upgrade. There’s an original rudimentary state coated in Vibranium, and the character’s main aim is to seek out more of the raw material to continue his ‘upgrades’. Actor James Spader is reportedly doing mo-cap for at least one iteration of the character, so Ultron will be “much more than just a helmet at some point.”

With Avengers Tower being spotted in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, they report: “With S.H.I.E.L.D. effectively dissolved, Stark Tower has been renamed Avengers Tower. Stark is now bankrolling the team along with new tech, new costumes, and a new Quinjet. He’s also created an army of Iron Man drones to help keep the peace.”

As a result of the team being an official, em, team now, we can expect to see this reflected in their outfts: “Each member of the Avengers will sport an Avengers logo on their costumes, Black Widow will have two tazer batons, Hawkeye will sport a long sleeve jacket, Hulk will don stretchy pants that can adjust to Bruce’s size changes.”

The Avengers will seemingly assemble early in the movie and they speculate as to why: “One battle near the opening of the film takes place in a forested area and will be where we see our first hero shot of the team together. This could be a part of the confrontation with Baron Von Strucker and the first encounter with Quicksilver and The Scarlet Witch.”

Regarding new Avengers appearing, “Paul Bettany’s Vision won’t appear until the third act and also Don Cheadle’s War Machine is expected to cameo.”

Some pretty cool stuff in here… like we weren’t excited enough!

Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Robert Downey Jr, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Elizabeth Olsen, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, James Spader, Kim Soo-Hyun, and Thomas Kretschmann.

Avengers: Age of Ultron is set for release on May 1st, 2015.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
