The superheroes reassemble for Avengers: Age of Ultron

October 13th, 2013  |  Published in Spotlight

Yes, they’re coming back! On 24th April 2015, we’ll see the superheroes reassemble for Avengers: Age of Ultron.

And so the 3rd biggest grossing movie of all time, The Avengers, gets a sequel. Of course it does! It had sequel written all over it on its opening weekend. So get that clock counting down, because we only have a measly 18 months to wait for Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Avengers: Age of UltronThe last few months have been a bit rocky though, worrying us all silly as to whether Robert Downey Jr. would be back as the stupendous Tony Stark / Iron Man (along with Chris Evans’ heroic Steve Rogers / Captain America, Mark Ruffalo’s sublime Bruce Banner / Hulk, Scarlett Johansson’s very sassy Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow, Jeremy Renner’s steely Clint Barton / Hawkeye and Chris Hemsworth’s regal Thor) but now that’s settled, if it wasn’t enough having the “we’re not a team, we’re a timebomb” back together, we have some other tantalising news…

There’s a formidable new villain to look forward to, in the shape of the robotic Ultron, who’ll be played by the superb James Spader. Great casting, Joss! Tom Hiddleston’s Loki was a top adversary in the first film, where his quick quips gave us some of the movie’s high points but Spader brings a fantastic, edgy quality to the proceedings. I think he stands alongside Jeff Goldblum and Christopher Walken as one of the most original actors out there for the way they deliver a line. We’ve seen Spader show us this in everything from Sex, Lies and Videotape to Secretary, from White Palace to Mannequin and right now he’s creating quite a splash on TV with his psychopath Raymond ‘Red’ Reddington in the new drama series The Blacklist. As I said, great casting, Joss!

Added to that, it now seems as though the Ultron ensemble is pretty near complete with the most recent additions being confirmed: the fantastically talented Elizabeth Olsen will be playing Wanda Maximoff / Scarlet Witch and Kick-Ass’s very own Aaron Taylor-Johnson is Pietro Maximoff / Quicksilver.

Woo hoo! So, how long is it till it opens again?!!
