With a very powerful first movie comes an upcoming sequel with more difficult enemies to defeat. “The Avengers 2: Age of Ultron” is promising a different type of onslaught that will bring the notable superheroes to their knees with a sudden rise of level in difficulty with enemies Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch and The Vision. Read further to learn more about this story.
The three mentioned names are confirmed to be siding on Team Ultron as explained by director Joss Whedon in The Epoch Times.
“They’re on Team Ultron, which makes things really hard for the Avengers because all of sudden they’re dealing with powers that they’re not used to,” confirmed Whedon.
Looking at the standpoint of the characters in the comic’s perspective alone, we already know that siblings Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, played by Godzilla‘s Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen respectively, surpass the capacity of the alien entities that the team faced in the first movie by a hundredfold. They do not possess the strength by numbers rather by immense power. Their existence alone is enough to trample over the strengths of our heroes. Quicksilver is incredibly fast with his ability to move quicker than the average people and objects, transcending through time while, Scarlet Witch has the ability to invade and scour people’s minds. There are also rumors that she has the power to bend dimensions.
It wasn’t really depicted in the film, but these two characters are the children of “X-Men’s” long standing antagonist-protagonist Magneto. The siblings are basically gypsies, and Quicksilver is certainly a character bearing the negative demeanor of intense anger and impatience, who only carries the resemblance of kindness towards his sister alone. Together, the siblings harbor a fiery hate against “The Avengers,” but the film makers did not reveal any reason as to how or why.
“With the [first] Avengers, everybody pretty much had the power of being able to punch somebody and now we have a woman who can get inside your head and move objects, and a boy that can move faster than anything, and a robot [Ultron] who can self-replicate and is out of his mind. So all of sudden, it’s a darker, weirder, tougher world that they’re living in,” elaborated Whedon.
We’ve all witnessed Quicksilver in the recent “X – Men: Days of Future Past” with his comical, indifferent and carefree character, but Marvel Studios clearly explains a different shade of his character for this film. In the detailed report by Design & Trend, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige claims that there might as well be two completely different characters for the two films despite having a few similarities because of the character’s supreme capabilities.
The Vision, on another matter, is another massive entity threat that seems to have originated from J.A.R.V.I.S. as they are voiced by the same actor, Paul Bettany. There no elaborate up-to-date explanations on his characteristics as a villain, but he is also another evil thing that will take the level of challenge to “The Avengers” on a whole new level.
“The Avengers: Age of Ultron” guarantees the reprising of the main roles Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Chris Evans (Captain America), Mark Ruffalo (Hulk), Chris Hemsworth (Thor) and Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow). The additional cast includes: Cobie Smulders (Maria Hill), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Quicksilver), Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch), Paul Bettany (The Vision), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Andy Serkis and James Spader (Ultron). It is set to hit theaters on May 1, 2015.
