Chris Hemsworth talks Ultron, teaser for Thursday’s new trailer arrives…

March 3rd, 2015 by Marc Comments


With everyone excited for the return of the Avengers in May when they face the Age of Ultron, Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth, has been talking about his role in the movie.

He tells IGN that Thor and The Vision will not see eye-to-eye and they will fight on “their first meeting really. And it’s… conflicted. It’s a big fight scene.”

Age of Ultron will she him returning home and facing the consequences of Loki ruling Asgard but the immediate threat is Ultron, obviously: “The initial threat of attack from Ultron is personal. Thor then begins to see a bigger picture about what this threat could potentially be and it begins to tie into all of our films.”

“Halfway through [the story] Thor begins to have suspicions about what the bigger picture is here, you know. Who’s involved. And he actually doesn’t know by the end of it, but he starts to think something’s not right here. [He thinks] ‘This is all a little too convenient. ‘Why has this happened?’ Which you know, certainly points his focus back there [to Asgard].”

He also confirmed what many had thought already, that Scarlett Witch will show each Avenger their worst fear during the movie and it may well be through the oft-used dream sequence.ould, at some point in the movie, force all of the Avengers to see their greatest nightmares. Each character, from the sound of Hemsworth’s comments, will experience a “dream sequence” where their fears will manifest before them. For Thor, Hemsworth said it was “the corruption of power.”

Also, the new trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron will air during the premiere of American Crime on ABC this Thursday, March 5th at 10/9c. And should be online shortly after. Meanwhile, here’s a little tease (scroll on for the awesome Hulkbuster figure from Hot Toys)…

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….
