There was so much news on Avengers: Age of Ultron yesterday that it was hard to keep track of everything. Entertainment Weekly revealed a lot on the 2015 film, such as showing off new pictures and revealing that Don Cheadle will reprise his role as James Rhodes in the upcoming film. However the major thing coming out from yesterday story was the cover of the new Entertainment Weekly. Not only did the magazine feature the likes of Iron Man and Captain America, but making his first appearance was the villain for the Avengers sequel Ultron (played by James Spader). The mechanical menace was front and center on EW; along with his drone army. Since the reveal, moviegoers cannot help but wonder what is in store for this anticipated blockbuster and what impact Ultron will play in the film. Fortunately, EW was able to deliver on this matter as the magazine features some details on the antagonist.
In Entertainment Weekly's first look of Age of Ultron, the magazine had plenty on the upcoming Marvel villain. EW revealed plot details on the character and how Ultron starts as an Iron Drone who fights in Tony Stark's place, but becomes twisted as the film progresses. It also states that Ultron and Tony will share a father-son relationship in the upcoming film, which will only drive the drama of the blockbuster. The article also gets thoughts from Avengers such as Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth. Chris Evans had the best description on Ultron as he found states the villain's characteristics.
"A lot of times when Ultron starts talking, it’s beautiful," explains Chris Evans. "It's really intelligent stuff. He's out to do the things he wants to do because he's disgusted with X, Y, and Z. You could probably sit down with Ultron and have a really intelligent conversation. He could blow your mind with his views."
Evan's word indeed make Ultron out to be a villain that moviegoers will remember; yet some out there may need more convincing. If the actor's words were not good enough to get an understanding of the antagonist, EW also featured some of Ultron's dialogue to give readers a better idea of how this villain thinks.
"I know you're 'good' people...I know you mean well… but you just didn't think it through… There is only one path to peace… your extermination."
If that is not enough to give Ultron an impression, then what is? There is still plenty of time before the release of this film; but just by reading these lines from the villain, this massive blockbuster cannot come any sooner.
