    I am 100% not hyped.

    It looks like the first movie, villian taunts the team. Hulk seems to get thrown off on his own somewhere again, team fighting amongst themselfs again (thor/tony), an army of metal robot guys instead of chatari, Hulk fights the big one again. It mostly bothers me that there is a clip showing a bunch of metal robot guys who presumably attack the avengers. Am i alone in just wanting 1 bad guy? maybe 2-3 henchman but not a frigging army of guys again, anyone else feel that way?

    So this is how The Blacklist plays out? I did not see that one coming.

    That's sort of like getting mad at Star Wars for having Storm Troopers instead of just Darth Vader.

    For ensemble casts like this, having one bad guy is boring. It works in other movies where it's just like Iron Man vs Whiplash but here you want to see all their powers shine differently.

    I understand this but i just fear it will be too much like the first Avengers film. I can just see this playing out the same way but with a much less interesting enemy, Loki was cool and he had a deal struck which explained the army he had. I somehow doubt we're going to get a decent reason for why there are hundreds of robots fighting this time and i just know they are going to make two ridiculously overpowered characters (Quicksilver and Scarlett witch) look useless even tho either of them could probably end whatever problem the film has in 10mins.

    Hell, If at any point of the movie quicksilver is an enemy and he gets beaten, im just going to call bullshit. He could dismantle ironman's suit, wrap hulk and thor in a cocoon of duct tape and attach strings to captain america and make him dance like a puppet before black widow can load her trusty glock. That leaves hawkeye and his trusty bow and i admit, i dont know much about him. Could he nail an arrow into quicksilver? Who knows! But it'll probably happen in this movie.


    [Edit] Yes im saying all this based on a trailer. Maybe the movie will prove all my negativity wrong!

    i might have missed something in the last few decades of marvel lore, but since when has quicksilver become so op? i thought he barely scratched speed of sound (at least for most of his life) or something?

    ...That's a pretty huge assumption based on two minutes of teaser trailer footage. Besides, it seems pretty clear (if not outright stated) that Tony Stark made them along with Ultron and that Ultron takes control of them over the course of the film.

    Also, calling Ultron less interesting than Loki? In the year of our lord 2014 AD? Git gud, scrub.


    He isn't. It was only in Days of Future Past where they juiced him up on speed force. At most, in the comics, he can top out at 200 mph; fast, but not that fast.

    Is that an unusual case of RAS syndrome?

    Anyway on the army of people in a fight thing I hope such logic takes off after I turn evil(er) and announce that I have taken over the world. One hard bastard still gets stopped by one hard bullet after all.

    Andy Serkis better be playing Ulysses Klaw. Black Panther is long overdue.

    Well, there's no doubt that superspeed is OP, but they never give it it's just due for a few reasons.
    You can't have it be only positives. In order to be able to move at such high speeds, the person would also have to consume an inordinate amount of fuel. Sometimes they'll play this off as the superspeedster eating a lot, but that wouldn't supply enough calories. I would imagine the most efficient way to get the fuel into your body would be through a tube hooked directly into your body, ala Bane and his venom. Even then, fuel consumption would have to be highly regulated in a way that doesn't really lend itself to fun adventures.
    You also have the problem of high speeds creating major issues with collisions. If Quicksilver were to punch Thor, would his (Quicksilver's) bones be strong enough to withstand the forces?
    Of course, they could always just explain this stuff away as comic book science, but that would also apply to why Quicksilver (or another superspeed person) can be easily thwarted by things he shouldn't be beaten by.

    Personally super heroe movies have never interested me (well except kickass and orgazmo) and this won't change it

    Went in with zero hype.
    Left feeling good.
    Was a fun enough movie, even if it didn't have all that much impact.

    I have to say, as fun as the movie was, I walked out not feeling any kind of excitement like I got from the first movie. I think this is in large part because the first Avengers movie closed out Phase 1 and went out with a bang. On the other hand, Age of Ultron is just kind of the halfway point to our Thanos Avengers film. As well, Ultron was a self made villain. He didn't rise from some great wrongdoing in his life, nor did he come from another world to wreak havoc. I mean, yay they tie in stuff that will be important in the Avengers movie we're actually waiting for, but at the same time, this came with so little sense of awe. Hell, a lot of it felt like they were trying to emphasize both how essential Hawkeye is for the team, and yet how useless he also is. It almost seems ironic how hard they tried to make him seem important when they later just made jokes out of him once more.

    The movie had good action and was otherwise what you've come to expect from a Marvel movie, but it really felt like they were mostly using the movie as an excuse to squeeze in as much character development as they could for the members of the team they have no intention of making a(nother) movie for prior to the big two part Avengers movie still somewhat far off on the horizon.
