While 2015 is unofficially the year for horror films, Marvel’s Avengers movie franchise is set to blow up the international box office with its sequel, “Avengers: Age of Ultron”!
Entertainment Weekly released exclusive photos from the set of “Avengers: Age of Ultron”, which consists of the Marvel heroes with the new Avengers, Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch.
The sequel centres on the robot Ultron that was created to protect the world but later became one of the greatest threats to the Marvel universe. And of course, this is why the Marvel heroes are required to assemble again – to stop Stark’s own creation from destroying the world.
In the comic book version, Ultron was originally created by a scientist Dr. Henry Pym and fought with Avengers to conquer the world. But for the film version, the creator was changed to Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) instead as it was his plan to let the superheroes rest easy while Ultron the artificial intelligence protects the world.
Or so Tony Stark thought.
The villainious character will be voiced by the award-winning actor James Spader while the new Avengers Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch will be portrayed by Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen respectively. The film is directed by Joss Whedon, starring Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, and Don Cheadle.

“Avengers: Age of Ultron” is scheduled for a May 2015 release. It will be released in Malaysia on April 30th, 2015.
