JoBlo has been doing some digging into The Avengers: Age of Ultron, and after the recent reveal of what we can expect the films opening scene to look like thanks to Latino Review, some new details have now been revealed on character costumes, how these costumes will fit in with the film, and also details on The Avengers Tower and more!
It has been confirmed that the details come from reliable sources with trusted inside information, but it is still best to treat this as just a rumour for now.
Firstly let’s see what the new Black Widow costume has in store:
Black Widow’s costume update will feature not only the previously reported batons, but her suit is said to be more “TRON-style” in nature with blue lights and electricity around the suit. Her enemies will now receive electric shocks or a “widow’s sting” when she hits them, giving her more of a “superhero” edge amongst her super-powered counterparts.
Sounds like Black Widow will be a big part of Joss Whedon’s sequel, and there is still the possibility of setting up her own film, so the added powers here could very well be doing that.
Moving on to Tony Stark and his Iron Man suits, and for now there will definitely be two suits in use, the Mark 43 and the Mark 44 (above, also known as The Hulkbuster):
Stark wears the Mark 43, a suit with less gold on it than IRON MAN 3, but still more than in THE AVENGERS. The chest core reactor will be back to the circular shape favored by director Joss Whedon. The Mark 44 is the Hulkbuster and will be his other suit in the film.
A little has also been revealed about Paul Bettany’s role as The Vision:
The Vision will be 100 percent Paul Bettany with his face and body all in metallic form, very shiny with gold, red, and green (as well as the yellow cape).
The Vision was an android created by the robotic villain Ultron, who was meant to be one of Ultron’s henchmen but who instead turns against him and becomes a hero.
The Avengers Tower will be the largest ever for a Marvel film, so says Marvel President Kevin Feige:
According to Kevin Feige, the new Avengers Tower is the largest ever for a Marvel film, featuring a large landing platform and garage for the new Quinjet within a large space that is full of windows, screens, and “techno stuff” but “really chic” with a lab directly in the middle where Stark and Banner work together.
Speaking of the Quinjet, that too has had a redesign:
The Quinjet redesign features more chairs to accommodate all Avengers, much like the X-Men’s Blackbird. The overall design is less military and more sleek with a bigger array of weaponry.
Finally, there has been some detail revealed about the films big villain, Ultron:
Ultron will be more than just a helmet, with his full face being articulated, including the mouth. All movements from James Spader’s face are used to bring more personality to the villain. The suit mock-up is reminiscent of the weapon that Agent Coulson used to shoot Loki in THE AVENGERS, which was made from the parts of the defeated Destroyer in THOR. The suit is said to have a “red firelight underneath, giving him a kind of ‘Balrog’ effect from LOTR.”
Ultron will have an army of drones that are similar in appearance to himself, minus the glowing red “energy” effect.
“Avengers: Age of Ultron” will bring the Marvel Universe’s biggest heroes together again to face one of their biggest villains, with “Marvel’s The Avengers” director Joss Whedon returning to write and direct the sequel. “Marvel’s The Avengers” was released in 2012 and went on to earn $1.5 billion worldwide, making it the third-largest grossing movie of all time.
The Avengers: Age of Ultron will Hulk-smash its way into UK cinemas on May 1st 2015.
