For a couple of weeks, a low quality screen cap of The Avengers: Age of Ultron teaser trailer has been circulating online. It was such a low quality video that it made little sense to feature it on the Major Spoilers website.
Now that a HD version of the video is online, it’s time to share the Ultron-y goodness with everyone.
EW is reporting that James Spader has been signed to play Ultron for Avengers: Age of Ultron, the sequel to last years Avengers film. Now speculation is running on whether he’ll just be the voice of Ultron, or if Spader will be doing motion capture like Mark Ruffalo and Vin Diesel do for Hulk and Groot. Joss Whedon had made the announcement himself and you can see more of what he had to say after the jump.
During the San Diego Comic-Con a number of companies were recording video for uploads later. Though this one has been out for a while, Avengers: The Age of Ultron is still on everyone’s mind, so here’s Joss Whedon talking it up.
Or – “You Gonna Eat That?”
When they devastated the world of the Ultimates a few years ago, many said that Marvel’s Ultimate Comics line was dead. Now, the world-eater known as Galactus has been let loose in their universe, which has once again raised rumors of Ultimate Demise. Will this be the end of Miles Morales and the whole superhuman crew? Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
Or – “Perhaps #11 of 10?”
In the final analysis, Age Of Ultron was pretty much a whole lotta nothin’. Though there was a cool sci-fi premise at play, the slow build and utterly deflating resolution didn’t do it any justice, and any power that it might have had was blunted by its distance from the current status quo of Marvel. Will this issue be the one that redeems the whole mess? Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
Having now read the promised shocking reveal at the end of the (sort of) time-spanning events of Age Of Ultron, I’m impressed with how well Marvel editorial played the hype machine, to the point where the acquisition of a minor supporting character from a 20 year-old-issue of Spawn is the biggest news in comics. Still, having TOLD US what was going to happen, the surprise is somewhat mooted, while the full ramifications of Wolverine’s careless impulsiveness are probably yet to be felt. I do believe that the promises that this will be talked about for years were sincere, but I suspect that it will be of a technical bent, equivalent to using “Superboy punch” as panacea for any and all continuity concerns post-Infinite Crisis. As giant crossovers go, this one was less invasive than most, and generally inoffensive in its fanboy machinations, begging a question…
The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) thinks that the bits involving Galactus would have been more meaningful seven years or more ago, asking: Are the events of Age Of Ultron #10 really enormous and meaningful to you?
Or – “Can It Live Up To The Hype?”
Marvel editorial has promised this book will change everything, that we’ll be talking about this book for years. Given where last issue left off, that seems like it might be hyperbole, but how much could one issue really change the status quo? Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
If you are anxiously counting down to Wednesday, and let’s face it, we are all looking forward to new comic book day – there’s a good chance you are also counting down to Age of Ultron #10!
Who’s picking up Age of Ultron #10 this week?
If you aren’t maybe this teaser from Marvel will convince you, I mean LOOK at all those Wolverines.
The Avengers are down to their last resort as they forge the ultimate plan to finally break free from Ultron’s ferocious iron grip.
Or – “An Uneven Series Thus Far…”
Future Wolverine traveled back in time to undo Ultron’s reign of terror by murdering Hank Pym, but created an even more crapsack world in the doing. Now, he’s once again in the timestream, but if Doctor Who has taught us anything, it’s that messing with history can be dicey business. Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
