As if we didn’t have enough superhero news to boast about today already.
Hours after Zack Snyder announced that he would be making a Superman/Batman crossover film as well as announcing release dates for The Flash as well as The Justice League pictures, Joss Whedon gave an announcement that told everyone what the title of the Avengers sequel will be.
It’s called The Avengers: Age Of Ultron. Whedon announced at San Diego Comic Con as well as through the Twitter message below:
As if I wasn’t hyped up already. For people who aren’t comic book nerds (like me), Ultron is a sentient robot entity created by one named Dr. Hank Pym that was initially made to help and aid the Avengers which inevitably turned against them, learning to fear and hate humanity for their flaws and their crimes. It learned to rebel against its creators, similar to the complex between Frankenstein and the monster he created.
I will say nothing more about this. My excitement is pumped up to 100 times 100, but I need to now see the movie in order to fairly judge it. The concept is now at the best stage it possibly can be. Now it is up to Whedon and the rest of his team to perfect the execution and make it work.
Are you guys excited? Previously, it appeared that Thanos would be the main villain considering he appeared briefly in the end credits scene of The Avengers, but now it looks like Whedon is saving him for Avengers 3. Excited? Furious? Comment below, let me know.
