On the heels of yesterday’s extended TV spot for “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” Marvel dropped a very similar clip with one crucial difference. The third television spot for the highly anticipated “Avengers” sequel shows Robert Downey Jr.’s character Tony Stark flying high in the sky in his Iron Man suit with large machinery soaring around him. The large metal pieces disassemble in flight and reach out towards him, leading us to believe Stark designed the Hulkbuster armor to latch onto his Iron Man suit on the go.
It is still unclear what causes Bruce Banner (played by Mark Ruffalo) to fall into a rage-filled Hulk fit, but while we’re weighing the odds, we’d have to guess it has something to do with the new character addition of Scarlet Witch, played by Elizabeth Olsen. Scarlet Witch, the super-powered sibling of Quicksilver, has the ability to alter reality and get inside the Avengers’ heads to make them see whatever she wants. Her powers, which may be the reason we see Hulk fly into a fit of rage, could also be the reason why we see glimpses of Natasha Romanoff’s past as a ballerina and training she received prior to becoming Black Widow.
All the questions, if not most of them, will be answered when the Joss Whedon directed action/fantasy graces theaters on May 1. The film follows Tony Stark’s attempt to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program which brings far more harm than good. Chris Evans returns as Captain America joining Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Aaron Taylor Johnson as Quicksilver, Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Paul Bettany as Jarvis/The Vision and James Spader as the voice of Ultron.
Casting notices for the follow-up film “Captain America: Civil War” have been posted in and around Atlanta calling for extras. The notice includes the film’s synopsis which reads: “Following the events of the Age of Ultron, the collective governments of the world pass an act designed to regulate all superhuman activity. This polarizes opinion amongst the Avengers, causing two factions to side with Iron Man or Captain America, which causes an epic battle between former allies.”
In an exclusive “Avengers: Age of Ultron” clip unveiled at a Marvel event, the tensions build between Captain American and Iron Man. While splitting wood with an axe in a yard, Tony Stark and Steve Rogers get into a heated argument over the idea of using artificial intelligence to protect the universe. Showing his strength in anger, Rogers rips a piece of wood apart with his bare hands and warns Stark, “Every time someone tries to end the war before it starts innocent people die. Every time.”
Fans can expect to see Captain America and Iron Man duke out their differences in “Captain America: Civil War” when the film arrives on May 6, 2016. The Anthony Russo and Joe Russo directed action/sci-fi also stars Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Anthony Mackie as Falcon and newcomer Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther. Other stars include Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier and Daniel Bruhl as Baron Zemo.
