Who hasn’t wanted to change a highly anticipated film’s disappointing ending? Fortunately, the gang at How it Should Have Ended make it their business to provide a great way for disgruntled film fans to vent via laughter. The creators of the web-series are pros at spotting flaws in films, using animation to poke fun at both plot holes and unsatisfying endings.
Now, with The Avengers: Age of Ultron having debuted a month ago, and the film’s finale long since revealed, How it Should Have Ended is now doing what it does best: humorously lambasting the film’s ending in a newly released video.
In it, the animators primarily poke fun at Ultron, the villain of the film, by exploring his potential to penetrate the internet and the ensuing chaos that would’ve undoubtedly resulted (if only he’d thought to exploit the near limitless possibilities of those powers). To humorous effect, Ultron manipulates the internet, forcibly crashing cars and planes, messing with Tony Stark’s bank accounts and Iron Man suit, before finally (gasp!) taking away The Avengers’ access to cable.
This How The Avengers: Age of Ultron Should Have Ended video concludes with the promise of a part two, which should provide plenty of chuckles to Avengers fans and critics alike. But what aspects of Age of Ultron might the animators pull apart next?
The parody-reviewers could jump on Whedon’s decision to change Ultron’s origin story, which was done (in part) because Ant-Man‘s origin story had yet to be told in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With Ant-Man scheduled for a July 2015 release, How It Should Have Ended is presented with a timely opportunity to bring a disgruntled Ant-Man into the comical fray to weigh in being excluded from Ultron’s origin story.
They could also make fun of the romance between Black Widow and The Hulk, as well as Black Widow’s depiction overall, which have been major points of contention for some fans. There are those who even think that the film is a bit sexist in this regard. Whether these things will be made fun of or not, we’ll have to wait for part two to find out.
