According to Latino-Review on Tuesday, there are what would be considered major movie spoilers for Joss Whedon’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron.” The sequel picks up where it left off in “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” as Baron Von Strucker is found at the end of the film having possession of Loki’s staff, Chitauri technology, and a dead Leviathan. Of course, fans got to see both Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver imprisoned in cells.
The scene opens with The Avengers invading the Hydra bunker as they go up against Von Strucker and Scarlet Witch. No information was given about Quicksilver’s activity, but he does partake in fighting along side his sister and the Hydra cell leader. To some this may seem like a spoiler of sorts, but upcoming marketing strategies would likely reveal such sequences in the future anyhow.
As The Avengers oppose the forces against them, Scarlet Witch creates an illusion that the Chitauri Leviathan is indeed actually alive. This fools the Hulk into thinking he’s fighting something that isn’t there, which leads to a lot of destruction for nothing. For those who aren’t familiar with such a creature, this is the mounted beast that transported the warriors to Earth during The Battle of New York.
After a time The Avengers are victorious, make their way back to Stark Tower and partake in celebratory activities. One of their party games include attempting to pick up Thor’s hammer. As each one makes an attempt, something funny happens. Tony Stark attempts to do so in his armor, only to lose his armor arm appendage and Steve Rogers can move it ever so slightly, but as of yet to succeed. In the comic books, Captain America is able to pick up Mjolnir. But as with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, things have been seemingly different.
Recently, Mark Ruffalo had mentioned that his Hulk character is a bit more complex in “Avengers 2” and from what he said there are a few layers in this case.
“[My role’s] even bigger than last time, and it’s more complex and it has more layers and a bit more arc.”
Apparently Banner has a thing for Black Widow and it’s starting to become obvious. He’d like to be intimate with her, but has a major fear of “Hulking out” on her and causing her pain. He almost destroyed her and the lower floors of the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier, so there’s no telling what he’d do to her in the bedroom. As some fans may recall, he could where a pulse monitor on his wrist like in the solo “Hulk” movie.
Another interesting tidbit of information is that Thor is no longer with Jane Foster, in actuality she’s reunited with Richard as played by “Doc Martin’s” Chris O’Dowd. Some may recall him at the beginning of “Thor: The Dark World” as Jane is getting to know him over dinner and her co-hort Darcy Lewis, played by Kat Dennings, interrupts her with an urgent matter. Fortunately, it looks like Thor is okay with it.
“Avenger: Age of Ultron” is scheduled to be released come May 1, 2015.
