Let’s face facts fanboys and fangirls, if you polled audience goers about whether or not they needed to see who Marvel‘s the Avengers would face in their blockbuster sequel the majority probably wouldn’t care.
This film is destined to be a smash even without images via the interwebs. We all want a movie that lives up to what we get from the cinematic version of the House of Ideas, with, maybe a little more oomph. And I think it’s safe to say that the Teaser Trailer had plenty of worth in it. But I’d be lying if I failed to admit that I had some mixed feelings, especially in regard to the titular villain.
Here’s some concept art featuring the antagonist in in all his mechanical glory.
Ultimately this iteration of Ultron (James Spader) sounds downright menacing as he attacks Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in an assault that’s bound to rival or exceed what Loki (Tom Hiddleston) did with his Chitauri. But the voice I’ve had in my head for the last twenty years doesn’t fit what I’m hearing.
I’m on board with the visual upgrade and altered origin but I want him to be a bit more mechanical! And come on Marvel you could have released something cooler than this.
What say you dear readers? Am I off base here? Is it too early to judge? Or are you already on board?
