Marvel Studios presents Avengers: Age of Ultron, the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time. When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.
Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Robert Downey Jr., who returns as Iron Man, along with Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk. Together with Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, and with the additional support of Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill, the team must reassemble to defeat James Spader as Ultron, a terrifying technological villain hell-bent on human extinction. Along the way, they confront two mysterious and powerful newcomers, Wanda Maximoff, played by Elizabeth Olsen, and Pietro Maximoff, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and meet an old friend in a new form when Paul Bettany becomes Vision.
"Captain America 2" may have been eclipsed by another Marvel movie "Guardians of the Galaxy" as the year’s biggest domestic hit, but the Captain America sequel’s performace at the box office cannot be easily dismissed either. With its record at the box office, expectations for "Captain America 3" is very high and it is surely putting some pressure to Marvel and its cast.
According to recent news from Collider, “Captain America 3” is set to start filming next April in Atlanta. Directors Anthony and Joe Russo will again direct the third film. It has also been confirmed from the directors that the next movie will explore more about the convoluted relationship between Steve Rogers (Capt. America) and Bucky Barnes (Winter Soldier); as well as addressing the identity issues of Bucky.
Red Skull is also hinted to make a return, as the directors said that anything is possible within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Fans can also expect a greater villain in the third film.
Aside from Chris Evans and Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie (Falcon), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), and Jeremy Renner (Hawk Eye) may also be back for “Captain America 3.”
But are fans ready to accept that Captain America could come to a natural end with “Captain America 3?” That is something co-director Anthony Russo commented in an interview with MTV News.
The film is slated for May 6, 2016 release.
