The Avengers 2 confirmed as Avengers: Age Of Ultron

Joss Whedon confirms new villain with a sizzle reel

As if the Man Of Steel sequel news wasn’t a big enough story for one day, the Marvel panel went and announced the title of The Avengers sequel, and it’s one that’ll no doubt delight comic-book fans.

Yep, it’s officially called Avengers: Age Of Ultron. Joss Whedon revealed the news by taking to Comic-Con’s Hall H, and saying very little before rolling into a teaser video reel.

Initially, the footage seemed to be of Iron Man, and featured glimpses of other Avengers as dialogue from the first film was heard over the top (“We’re not a team, we’re a time bomb).”

It was only at the end of the brief clip that we saw a robotic face that wasn’t Iron Man’s, but Ultron’s. His glowing red eyes emitted a laser beam that became the new logo and title treatment.

Ultron is a superpowered sentient robot, who has been appearing in comics in various guises since the ‘60s. It often takes a big team to bring him down, so he should provide an ample villain for The Avengers.

Originally created by Ant-Man himself, Hank Pym, Ultron could be set to provide links to Phase Three and beyond. Let the wild speculation begin!

What do you think of the announcement? Tell us below!

      I'm in the process of reading the comic series of the same name which is pretty cool, but I don't see the movie going down the same lines the post apocalyptic story the comic does, this will surely be an introduction to Ultron and Antman. Either Way Bring it on !

      Why tease Thanos only to go with a villain Hank Pym creates before Ant-Man is even out? Weird decision IMO.

      Thanos will surely be GOG now ... but then again they haven't cast anyone for that role and film for GOG is already underway ... maybe Thanos will be the big bad leading up to bigger story later down the line ...?

      Joss is assuming that he will be making Avengers 3 clearing he has a bigger picture in mind for the thanos story line as guardians of the galaxy also appears to be connected with them supposedly transporting the infinity gauntlet ...lets hope he doesn't get too caried away with trying to do too much and ending with the whole thing imploding in on its self

      I worry he's marinating Thanos too much. Keeping Thanos for Avengers 3 is fine but teasing him at the end of The Avengers was just silly if that was Joss' plan all along. Ultron has a lot of history with The Avengers so to have him suddenly turn up out of the blue for the sequel is really throwing me off.

      Joss Whedon has confirmed Ultron will have a new origin and Ant-Man won't be in The Avengers 2. I don't see why they couldn't have placed the seeds of Ultron in the Ant-Man movies and then have as the villain for Avengers 3.
