The chaps over at Latino Review have revealed what will be the first 15-20 minutes of Joss Whedon’s sequel, The Avengers: Age of Ultron, and while this is no way confirmed (yet) supposedly many other sites are also validating the report. So whether this is true or not, it does make for some exciting reading, and sounds like a lot of fun should it be real.
MASSIVE SPOILERS AHEAD!!!
Basically, Age Of Ultron takes place and opens immediately after the Baron Von Strucker post credit scene in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
The opening set piece and big action scene has The Avengers as a team attack that rogue outpost Hyrda cell run by Baron Von Strucker. He has Loki’s staff, and also possesses Chitauri weaponry. The Avengers are there to basically clean it all up. But that’s not all, Von Strucker also has the corpse of a leviathan!
Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch fight alongside Von Strucker, with Scarlet Witch casting a Hex on Hulk which makes him think the Leviathan is alive. Cue lots of Hulk smashes! Naturally The Avengers beat Von Strucker, capture Loki’s staff and head back to The Avengers Tower and have a bit of a celebratory party. What do you think the party game of choice is?
Well, trying to pick up Thor’s hammer, what else? Tony Stark can’t do it, and even though he’s in his Iron Man suit, his metal arm falls off in the process (!!!). Rhodey is said to be in this scene too. It is Captain America who manages to move it just a smidgen, even though in the comics he is the only only can actually pick it up, so the fanboys may find this a tad silly.
In the party scene at Avengers Tower, we discover that Banner and Black Widow kinda have a thing for each other. Banner is afraid to consummate anything with her for fear of hulking out and hurting her. He doesn’t trust himself.
We also learn in the party scene that Jane is no longer with Thor! The poor Asgardian is at the bar watching Jane with Richard (Chris O’ Dowd’s character from Thor: The Dark World). Supposedly, he is ok with it.
And there you have it, and should this actually be true, it sounds a little, well, mental if you ask me, but all good fun in a way only Joss Whedon knows how. However, we will have to wait and see once the trailers and promos begin there assault if there seems to be any truth to this.
