Isn't she that English woman who's show spawned The Simpsons?  Yeah, Tracy Ultron.

If you really need to have explained who Ultron is, you probably aren't going to be going to see Avengers 2 anyway.

I had no clue what a chitauri was going into Avengers 1 and I still enjoyed the hell out of the movie. I don't know who Ultron is, yet I still want to see Avengers 2.

Who said you need to have an extensive knowledge of the Marvel universe to enjoy their movies?

Unless they were reading The Ultimates, no regular reader of Marvel did either.

Ultron will make a great villain for Avengers 2.

I think the bigger question is "Who the f*ck are the Guardians of the Galaxy"? If the people who greenlit that think it's gonna be a success I have a bridge to sell them. Yes, fanboys know who they are, but you need a large majority of the people to know who they are and have a burning desire to go see it. More people know who Green Lantern is and how did that film work out? Ghost Rider? Elektra? Catwoman? All more well known than the Guardians of the Galaxy.

Walker: fanboys know who they are


Iron Man was not very well known outside of comic fans. The Marvel Cinematic Universe cachet will be enough to draw in the opening crowd, word of mouth will make it a success.

So who's da Ultron?
 
2013-07-22 01:11:32 PM  
I didn't know who Whiplash or whatever his name was before Ironman 2.
Isn't Scott Summers father one of the Guardians, or is that some other interstellar group?
 
2013-07-22 01:12:53 PM  
He was a robot that showed up in Avengers #54, Hank Pym's robot that he created trying to dabble in high-int robots. The thing hypnotized Pym into thinking he'd never existed, and then proceeded to upgrade himself in a skynet-like parabola. Then he outfitted himself with an adamantium body and kicked everyone's ass. On the scale of cool villains from the comics, he's actually pretty far up there.

Also, he was the reason I started reading Percy Shelly.

bs. A ton of people who have no idea who Ultron is are going to see this movie. TONS.

Why? Cause it's some big scary robot that is big and scary and makes copies of itself. Oh and Tony "Snark" is going to be snarky, Thor is going to be awesome and the Hulk is going to be funny.
 
2013-07-22 01:30:06 PM  
All we know is he's portrayed by MISTER Shia LaBeouf!

I was more trying to say there are two kinds of folks who will go see Avengers 2: People who liked Avengers and don't care who the bad guy is (the bulk of people), and comic fans who already know who Ultron is.  If you fall into the third set, people who didn't like Avengers and aren't comic fans, this article isn't going to make you want to see it.

Ultron is a metal guy created by Hank Pym.

Ultron, in turn, created the Vision.

Also, Ultron's evility led in part to Hank Pym doing a concerto in fist minor on Jan's face.

The Vision, in turn, married the Scarlet Witch (Magneto's daughter. Spoilers LOL.)

So if they bring in Ultron, Wanda is eventually going to have to show up. I want to know how they will pull that off in today's updated film canon.

/Also, where's Namor?
 
2013-07-22 02:32:26 PM

A-holes who also think that women can't be comics fans, nor should they dress up at cons.

Nope. They specifically said he will not be in it.

I didn't know who Ultron was until reading an article Saturday. I would still have seen Avengers 2 without knowing.

But there is this thing called Google. And another thing called Wikipedia. Now I'm really looking forward to seeing Ultron.

Dr. Whoof: If you really need to have explained who Ultron is, you probably aren't going to be going to see Avengers 2 anyway.


Yeah, no. People will pour in for this movie. How many people do you think know that it was Thanos in the extra scene after the credits? Doesn't matter because it has big name start and the backing of the movies leading up to it.

I'm pretty sure the first Avengers movie is why most people will go see the second one.  The story only matters to the comics fans.

I was a big comic book fan 69-73. The Vision being a personal favorite. Did not know this until reading the Ultron Wiki.

No, your'e thinking of Allman, as in the Allman Brothers.  She is their sister.  Ultron: that is the guy who started Wal-Mart: Sam Ultron.  I guess the Avengers are going to be fighting globalization?

Yeah it doesn't make sense to me that you would have Ultron, who was created by Hank Pym, and you know, not have Hank Pym...but I suppose if they are doing it Age of Ultron comic style...

Maybe it will tie in somehow with Wolverine and Sue Storm traveling back in time to kill him.

I don't know if they number him anymore, but he was up to Ultron 16 and 17 in 1999.

While we could probably all get behind the fight against globalization, you are thinking of Sam Walton.  Ultron is that old timey family from the old TV show, The Ultrons, where the cast would spend most of the hour telling each other "good night," as in "Good night, John Boy Ultron."

It was a boring show.

Dude I'm pretty sure the millions of kids who haven't even been inside of a comic store, read a comic book and possibly have never used paper for anything other than personal hygiene and enjoyed the ever loving shiat out of the Avengers prove you wrong on this one.

Now that, I can wholeheartedly agree with. The bad guy really doesn't matter with this movie.

No, you're thinking of Sam Walton, the guy for whom Walton Mtn is named. Ultron is a giant robot made out of 5 mecha-lions that traverse the stars and battle Mum-ra!

No, no, no. Ultron John is that British singer -- he did Crocodile Rock. I'm guessing the plot of this one is going to be how Ultron takes control of the Hulk through music and the team can only be saved by a positive female character who's music-based and will really, um, 'dazzle' the 10-17 female demographic.

I think it gets lost with a lot of comics fans, but movies have a tendency to explain who characters are as the story progresses.

...aside from X-Men 3.  Yikes.

My feeling is that they are rushing to do Ultron a bit too fast.   I think he could use some more foreshadowing.  Nothing too heavy but some hints here and there during the 2nd film that lead to the third one.

Close, but no banana. You're thinking of Elton John. Ultron is that giant anime robot from the '80s that made out  5 diffrent colored robot lions. It was a good cartoon for its time, but it doesn't well anymore and i don't why Whedon would be dipping into anime when he has a lot to work with from the Avenger's catalog.
