Familiar faces like War Machine, Heimdall, Dr. Erik Selvig, S. H. E. I. L. D and Nick Fury all make appearances in this sequel. Ultron is a mechanical artificial intelligent being trying to rid the world of humans. The Avengers come together to stop him from destroying the world as we know it. This blockbuster movie will be one, if not the best Marvel movie to date in my opinion. It has all the depth and layers for a great movie which comes from having a strong foundation, and then it builds onto the storyline.
Avengers: Age of Ultron is a great movie because Marvel found a way to give great informative details on all the Avengers characters that was not shown in previous movies, while bringing in treachery, unity and comedy, as well as, the superheroes uniting with unforeseen alliance. Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, and Captain America all had their own spinoff movies that told their beginnings. The first Avenger’s movie showed how they came together. With the prior Avenger movie the team is fighting to save the world against aliens.
This sequel has Iron Man making sure that if there was ever another attack like the one The Avengers fought before, they would be well prepared. Iron Man creates Ultron, who is created to stop the possible threats towards mankind, but Ultron becomes the biggest threat himself. Ultron then enlists the help of the Maximoff twins who try to help bring down the team by using the Avenger’s fear and based on their past. Bringing this fear out gave a glimpse into each character’s past with facts that was unbeknownst before this movie.
The creation of Ultron was mostly Iron Man’s idea with the help of Bruce Banner (Hulk); however, Iron Man decided to keep the rest of the Avengers in the dark about his creation. This is a good action movie because they overcome the bickering, the bad attitudes and reunite to defeat a common enemy. Because there are multiple personalities working together for a common goal, the audience does not know what will happen next, making the movie very suspenseful. Each of the member’s strengths plays a role in defeating Ultron.
The Avengers uniting shows that teamwork will overcome evil. Especially, having the twin change sides and join the Avengers to defeat Ultron. The twins change of heart showed that although they felt wronged by the Avengers, they couldn’t do the same by wronging the people of the planet. Creating this storyline keeps the true fans interested and brings new people into the world of Marvel. True comic book readers will not like Avengers: Age of Ultron because it differs from the actual comic book’s storyline.
Most readers think that when a comic book is made into a movie that it should be a direct reflection of the series, which would be great to see but it will never allow people who don’t read the comic books to take an interest in them. With this current theme Wanda “Scarlet Witch” would have never seen the wrong decision ,that she made in aiding Ultron or join the Avengers if Pietro “Quicksilver” wouldn’t have died. The biggest factor to a great and successful movie is engaging all who watch it and make them want to see or read more.
AoU expanded the Avengers’ fanbase by changing the story line from the original comic book and adding new characters to the Avengers. Bloggers, critics and other entertainment reporters have all raved about how this movie can bring comic book lovers and new millennium fans to watch this movie together. Due to box office numbers the Avengers: Age of Ultron would be always considered Marvel’s best superhero movie for this year. Witnessing how each Avenger character develops into a collective superhero team makes the Avengers: Age of Ultron one of the most popular franchises as well as superhero movie of the year.
