According to Comic Book Movie on Friday, sources revealed quite a few "Avengers: Age of Ultron" spoilers about costumes, plot points, and a host of other interesting pieces of information about the Joss Whedon film. The project got its start by shooting in Johannesburg and already there are tons of photos out online where pictures of the filming have been taken from afar.

At this point, Whedon did already mention that Ultron is rather "rudimentary in nature" but will tend to upgrade himself throughout the film. The character is played by NBC's "Black List's" James Spader and there looks to be a portion of the film where he'll don a motion capture outfit for the character. That would mean that Ultron is not likely to be just a "helmet" throughout the entire film.

The source of his own construct is Vibranium and not to be confused by the materials making up the claws of a character from the "X-Men" movie franchise. Also, with the dissolution of S.H.I.E.L.D. in "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" at the hands of Hydra as well as Director Phil Coulson taking over Nick Fury's old position, it is noted that the former Stark Tower has been transformed into the Avengers Tower. This is mainly due in part by Tony Stark having globalized world defense as a result of the terrorist takeover.

If anyone recalls in "Iron Man 3" Stark's "Iron Legion" or what was coined as Project Wine Cellar as he had worked diligently on numerous armors have also made their way into "Avengers 2". The team makes their intention known to the public as they aren't going into hiding and intend on keeping the peace as S.H.I.E.L.D. is no longer in service.

It was also suggested that thanks again to Stark that Avengers logos will be embossed prominently onto each hero's outfit. Black Widow, as played by Scarlett Johansson, will don two shockingly effective baton weapons and Hawkeye, played by Jeremy Renner, will be equipping himself with a long-sleeve piece of apparel prominent of the comic book variant of himself. If anyone recalls Edward Norton's role as the Hulk, he is seen seeking out "stretchy" pants in Brazil, but Stark again saves the fashion industry for Bruce Banner as he gives Hulk an upgrade of a similar type.

Of course, the Vision, played by Iron Man's computer voice Paul Bettany, is thought to not make his full reveal until the third act of the film. Apparently he'll have his green and yellow color scheme that may also take on the transition in the similar fashion of Ultron self-upgrading properties.

"Avengers: Age of Ultron" is scheduled to be released on May 1, 2015.
