Did you know there is a new Avengers film on the way? Ha ha ha, I’m just kidding because of course you do. In fact, you already know who stars in it and the suspected plot and which new characters will make an appearance. This is all fact for us movie fans.
Therefore the official plot synopsis for Avengers: Age of Ultron isn’t that exciting. It pretty much says what we already knew. Ultron, played by that smooth operator James Spader, is trying to take over the world and the Avengers have to group together once again to battle the evil robot.
No, Marvel’s synopsis doesn’t give us anything new. It does, however, fail to refer to Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson by their superhero names of Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver. Why’s that? Is that sort of some big reveal at the end of the film? Yeah, probably. Interestingly, the synopsis does reveal that Paul Bettany will be transforming into Vision. That’s one surprise I thought they would keep close to the vest. But, hey, do your thing Marvel. I trust you.
The synopsis is all pretty straight-forward and laid out below for your viewing pleasure. Down with Ultron!
Marvel Studios presents “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time. 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.
Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” stars Robert Downey Jr., who returns as Iron Man, along with Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk. Together with Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, and with the additional support of Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill, the team must reassemble to defeat James Spader as Ultron, a terrifying technological villain hell bent on human extinction. Along the way, they confront two mysterious and powerful newcomers, Wanda Maximoff, played by Elizabeth Olsen, and Pietro Maximoff, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and meet an old friend in a new form when Paul Bettany becomes Vision.
