With the announcement of the next Avengers movie, Avengers: Age of Ultron, at this year’s San Diego Comic- Con, it’s hard not to say Marvel Studios is the king of the comic book movie industry. Iron Man 3 came out earlier this summer and with Thor: The Dark World coming up soon, they have no signs of slowing down. (I can’t wait to touch up my Asgardian tunic and breastplate for the premiere!)
First things first, Ultron!? I can’t believe they actually got Ultron in it! Yesssss!!!!! If you don’t know who Ultron is take a look below.
Age of Ultron?! On the bigscreen?! In 2 years?! Take my money now!
Don’t think he looks menacing? Well this is what he can do. Basically, he has superhuman levels of strength, speed, stamina, and reflexes can flight at subsonic speeds. His outer layer is made of Adamantium (watch out Wolverine) and he shoots an encephalo-ray, which puts his enemies into into a deathlike coma. Oh, and he can mind control people.He’s one of the biggest and baddest of the Marvel comic book universe and will definitely be giving the Avengers quite the challenge.
Speaking of Avengers, after I recovered from the Ultron announcement, the godfather of comic book movies (sorry Christopher Nolan) Joss Whedon announced that Quicksilver would be added to the roster of heroes. Quicksilver?! The fastest man in the Marvel Universe?!
It’ll be interesting to see how this works out since technically his father is Magneto, who lives in a completely different Marvel Universe. I forgot to mention that the same character will ALSO be in the upcoming X-Men movie, X-Men:Days of Future Past. I mean I thought the Earth-3490 story arc of Marvel Civil War was confusing, but this is on a whole different level.
Not to be confused with that other fast superhero.
I haven’t been this excited since I saw the camera phone recording of the Spider-man 3 Comic Con trailer reveal of Venom. Hopefully, my excitement for this movie won’t plunge as quickly when I ACTUALLY get to see the movie like that forgettable 3rd Spider-man movie. (Please tell Peter Parker to stop dancing. Please. I beg you.)
Anyways, if I can manage to keep my drawers dry after Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Guardians of the Galaxy (My Rocket Raccoon costume is almost finished!), I will be the first in line to see Avengers: Age of Ultron.
What would you name your superhero group? Let me know in the comments below. My superhero group would be called The Annihilators starring The Hulk, The Thing, The Juggernaut, and me. We would be UNSTOPPABLE! Mwahahaha!
