The 2013 San Diego Comic-Con is happening this weekend. There has been major news in the world of movies. It would be impossible to talk about everything that has happened. So today I will be talking about the news that is circling Avengers 2.
In the Thor:The Dark World/Captain America:The Winter Soldier panel Joss Wheadon (The director of the first Avengers) came out towards the end of the panel and he announced that the subtitle to The Avengers 2 will be Avengers 2:Age of Ultron.
Ultron is robot created by Dr.Henry Pym (A.K.A. Ant Man.) Pym was starting to experiment with artificial intelligence by programming the robot with putting his own brain patterns in the heart and soul of the robot. The robot not only inherited Pym's intellect but his mental instability. But the problem was he didn't inherit human conscience. But surprise surprise, when Pym activated the robot he got installed with a hatred for Henry Pym himself and the human race in which he represented. Ultron (the robot) mesmerized Henry in to forgetting and leaving his New Jersey lab (where Ultron was created)and never to return. Then Ultron kept coming back and rebuilding him self to make advancements to his body. Ultron sounds pretty close to Iron Man in my opinion but a man needs to be in a suit in order for Iron Man to work. Ultron's powers are what you would expect. He has developed self-awareness, intelligence, and an extreme hatred for his "father" Henry Pym. His other powers vary with each redesign. Each redesigns typically include superhuman strength and durability, the power of flight, and various weapons offensive weapons like his latter-ray which allows him to mesmerize and mind control his victims. It sounds very similar to Iron Man.
Enough with the history lesson, lets talk about how this will affect the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Most people were thinking of Thanos being the Avengers 2 villain. But clearly this says different. Ultron is obviously going to play the major villain role in Avengers 2. Thanos might still be in it but he probably wont have a big part. But this move of putting Ultron in Avengers 2 will have to force somethings. You will absolutely have to put Ant-Man into this film. You can't have Ultron with out Henry Pym/Ant-Man! Ant-Man is the film directly after Avengers:Age of Ultron. So if they do put Ant-Man in the Avengers 2 that is genius. Most of the current movie going audience thinks the name of an Ant-Man movie sounds stupid. But of course I'm excited because I love comics and Ant-Man is one awesome character. That being said putting a character like Ant-Man in the Avengers sequel will get the audience used to him. What part he will have in it, I have no idea. Maybe Ant-Man wont make an appearance just Henry Pym will be in it. Like a Bruce Banner role in the Avengers. The guy Nick Fury puts in charge for research. Or the first time we will see Henry Pym will be in the Ant-Man suit. But I would've much rather seen a Ultron in the Ant-Man stand alone film so we could see the relation ship between Ultron and Ant-Man develop more. This also means Thanos will most likely be the main villian in Avengers 3.
There has been no news on who will play Ultron or Henry Pym/Ant-Man or how or if they would use Ant-Man in Avengers:Age of Ultron. Comment on if you think Ant-Man belongs in Avengers 2 and who you would like to play Ulton or Ant-Man.
