Only a few weeks away from the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron, and news and images continue to pour in. Entertainment Weekly was the next to step up, offering multiple covers for their next issue featuring the Avengers and their villain Ultron. The covers combine to make the image below.
But wait! There’s more! A new synopsis for the film reveals that Ultron wasn’t solely created Tony Stark as we were meant to believe. He had help…
“Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury is struggling to hold together the superhero team he assembled as they face Ultron (James Spader) and a set of troubled twins: Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch and Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s Quicksilver. These new characters are the products of Baron Wolfgang von Strucker (Thomas Kretschmann), a new villain from HYDRA, which infiltrated S.H.I.E.L.D. long ago and raided its most powerful technologies.
Strucker has been using Loki’s scepter for human experimentation, which bestowed the siblings with powers of magic (Scarlet Witch) and speed (Quicksilver). But the bad baron piques the interest of Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark for other reasons. “Von Strucker was working on a lot of stuff, including robotics,” says Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige. “Tony realizes, ‘[Those robotics] might be able to help me get over the hump of some of the AI stuff I’ve been working on.’ ”
Hydra, it’s always Hydra…but truly, this makes more sense, as well as adding more depth and deception to the mix. Cause I highly doubt that Tony told the others he was messing with Hydra tech.
Age of Ultron arrives May 1st.
