As Tony Starks Iron Man helmet is slowly crunched into Ultron's evil robot bonce, snippets of Avengers dialogue reminds us that the crew don't get along that well and have scattered to the four corners. "They’ve gone their separate ways," Maria Hill tells Nick Fury. "They’ll come back," Fury replies. "Because we’ll need them to."
Age Of Ultron will see Tony Stark and the freshly assembled crew taking on a brand new threat torn straight from the pages of Marvel comic lore and given a smart origin story for the big screen. Ultron (James Spader) is a criminally insane, sentient robot dedicated to conquest and the extermination of humanity. He comes loaded with powers, including strength, agility, stunning intelligence, a rage filled loathing for our heroes and an intent to destroy them at all costs. From the looks of this teaser it would appear to be all Tony Stark's fault too, since he is apparently the robot's creator.
With Mark Ruffalo, Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, and most likely Scarlett Johansson and Jeremy Renner back, the new cast will also include Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver.
Avengers: Age Of Ultron starts shooting in January for a release date of 1 May 2015.
