The first official Avengers: Age of Ultron poster was a big mess of characters and details, but the character posters are a lot more clean. It helps that the posters only have to focus on one character each — in this latest case, Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk — and also that it appears to be just one part of a larger set which will assemble into a huge image. (This looks like it could be something along the lines of the concept art drop from Comic Con last summer.) We’ll continue to post the Age of Ultron character posters as they arrive, assembling them as we go along if they are indeed pieces of a larger image.

Ant-Man is coming to the MCU this summer. So is Ultron. But unlike in the comics, where Ant-Man (specifically Hank Pym) created Ultron, the two don’t seem to have much to do with other in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Instead, Tony Stark will be the one responsible for bringing the killer robot to life.
Naturally, fans have been complaining to Joss Whedon about the major change in Ultron’s origin story, and now the Avengers: Age of Ultron director has a response for them: Blame Edgar Wright. Well, Wright and the fact that Whedon just couldn’t find a good way to fit in Hank Pym. Find out why there’s no Hank Pym in Avengers after the jump. Read More »
In the comic books, Ultron is all but unbeatable. He’s artificially intelligent and, in addition to being super strong, fast and all that good stuff, he can transfer his consciousness and recreate himself. (He’s also changed powers over the years too.) So just when you think he’s dead, bang, he’s back in another form. That’s a big problem for a superhero movie where the good guys kind of have to win, according to Joss Whedon.
In an interview from the set of Avengers: Age of Ultron, the writer/director of the superhero sequel talked about the fact Ultron is so powerful in the comics, he was forced to dial back his abilities for the movie world. He also discussed how introducing Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch into the film helped the title character. Read the Joss Whedon Avengers Age of Ultron quotes below. Read More »

While there are rumors of him appearing in another Phase Three film, there’s a chance it won’t be until Avengers: Infinity War Part 1.
Mark Ruffalo does admit there are moments in Age of Ultron that tease what’s to come for the character.

We’ve seen many photos of Ultron, the main villain in Joss Whedon‘s Avengers: Age of Ultron. We’ve seen him in trailers, we’ve heard him reference Pinocchio, and we’ve seen glimpses of his origin. But until the movie is released, the best way to truly see a character like this is Hot Toys.
The high-end, Hong Kong-based toy company makes the most realistic and detailed collectibles in the world, and they just revealed photos of their Ultron Prime 1/6 scale collectible. You can see a bunch of the Hot Toys Ultron photos below, which give you some great looks at the character that’ll rain hell down on the Avengers come May 1. Read More »
