‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron’ to Open in UK Eight Days Ahead of U.S. Release
Marvel Fans from the UK are in for a lucky treat as they will be seeing Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” a week earlier since the studio has moved the release date of the superhero action movie eight days ahead from its U.S. release. Read on for more details on this story.
Marvel Studios has moved the UK release date of its superhero action movie “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” eight days earlier than the U.S. schedule. It certainly is not a surprise for a movie to be released in UK before its U.S. opening since it’s usually only by a day, but week difference opens opportunity for plenty of spoilers to leak across the Internet.
With S.H.I.E.L.D. no more and the Avengers in need of a hiatus from stopping threats, Tony Stark introduces a dormant peacekeeping program, Ultron—a self-aware, self-teaching, artificial intelligence capable of assessing threats. However, things go awry when his plan backfires as his latest creation sets out to eradicate the human race, believing that they are the main enemy. It is then up to Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, the Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, with support from Nick Fury and Maria Hill, to stop him. Along the way the Avengers encounter the powerful twins Pietro and Wanda Maximoff as well as a familiar new ally, the Vision.
Earth’s mightiest heroes from 2012’s “The Avengers” will be suiting up again to fight for the fate of all mankind: Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man, Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner/the Hulk, Scarlett Johansson as the Black Widow and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye. Cobie Smulders, Don Cheadle, Hayley Atwell, Thomas Kretschmann and Stellan Skarsgård will also reprise their roles from previous MCU films as Maria Hill, Col. James “Rhodey” Rhodes, Peggy Carter, Baron Wolfgang von Strucker and Erik Selvig. Claudia Kim was cast as a scientist and friend of Tony Stark, while Andy Serkis is set to play Ulysses Klaw. Paul Bethany who voices J.A.R.V.I.S., Stark’s AI butler, is also set to play the synthezoid Vision, an android with the ability to control his density, enabling him to phase through walls, fly or have a diamond-hard near invulnerability. New to the series are Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen, who are set to play the Maximoff twins, Pietro Maximoff and Wanda Maximoff or Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, respectively. James Spader will play the titular villain, Ultron.
“Avengers: Age of Ultron” will fly onto the big screens on May 1, 2015, in 2D and IMAX 3D in the USA and April 24 in the UK. Two sequels, “Avengers: Infinity War Part 1” and “Avengers: Infinity War Part 2,” are scheduled to be released on May 4, 2018, and May 8, 2019, respectively.
