The Avengers 2 Teaser: First Look At Ultron Design From Comic-Con

Published 1 year ago by , Updated March 7th, 2014 at 1:58 pm,

Coinciding with the release of Iron Man 3 on home video this week – and the premiere of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on ABC – Marvel released a free app for iOS devices titled JARVIS: A Second Screen Experience. Featuring the voice of JARVIS from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, played by Paul Bettany, the app uses voice recognition to let users interact with the apps features and unlock additional content hidden away on the Iron Man 3 Blu-ray.

Some rumors and speculation even had Marvel releasing this app to eventually be used as a source of viral marketing come time for The Avengers: Age of Ultron where the Ultron AI (the villain of the sequel) could take over the app. While that rumor is far off, the app does actually tease The Avengers sequel in a big way.

Official JARVIS app description:

Ever wonder what it’s like to be Tony Stark? Download the one-of-a-kind, interactive experience app hosted by JARVIS to your iPad or iPhone and find out. Just like the real JARVIS, you will be able to interact with him using your own voice. Create customized alarms to wake you in the morning, download ringtones, check the weather, post to Facebook and more! Sync the app to your Blu-ray player to unlock hidden files and suits embedded throughout the disc, and experience the first-ever voice controlled Blu-ray!

In addition to unlocking details and images on the many armor suits from Iron Man 3, users can unlock the official teaser trailer for The Avengers: Age of Ultron that played exclusively at San Diego Comic-Con this summer, the one which features Iron Man’s armor taking the shape of Ultron as the official title for the sequel was first revealed to the world. That teaser trailer (up top) offers some interesting hints about the origins of the next villain Earth’s Mightiest heroes will face off against.

Writer and director Joss Whedon had planned for Ultron to be the villain of The Avengers 2 while he was working on the first one, and there was even an eerie scene hinting that JARVIS could have something to do with Ultron’s creation that was cut from the film. Whedon has since confirmed that since the character of Ant-Man won’t be introduced until after The Avengers: Age of Ultron that Ultron’s origins will be entirely original (Hank Pym aka Ant-Man created Ultron in Marvel Comics). Ultron was also never a part of Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man script. This led us to believe that perhaps Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) could be responsible for his creation since obviously his armor has a big part to play in Ultron’s physical form and he’s the guy who builds and utilizes AI in his armored suits and lab – this would also give him the motivation for suiting up again after essentially tossing his armor out at the end of Iron Man 3.

That AI we know so well from The Avengers and the Iron Man trilogy is of course JARVIS (Paul Bettany) and we speculated that perhaps JARVIS could go rogue. With James Spader being cast as Ultron for The Avengers sequel, it’s not going to be that simple of a story – it never is – and Ultron’s cinematic origins remain a mystery. There could be ties to magic (from Scarlet Witch who’s also going to be introduced in the film) to the cosmos (to be explored in Guardians of the Galaxy) but JARVIS and Iron Man do have some part to play, regardless.

The Ultron design is seemingly not only faithful to the Marvel Comics design, but is an exact adaptation of it, which makes us curious as to the potential different versions of him in the film and how they’re going to have Ultron emote and go beyond Spader’s voice. Does the Age of Ultron teaser trailer excite you?

  1. I WILL NEVER WATCH THIS VIDEO OR ANY OTHER VIDEO ON THIS WEBSITE BECAUSE OF COMMERCIALS.

    • Oh so you just want free s*** and never have to “pay”for anything. Wah Wah Wah I have to watch a commercial Wah Wah Wah

    • I agree. I get that ads helps keep things free for us, but having to continuously restart the video because intrusive ads keep taking up half the screen is a little ridiculous.

    • I WILL NEVER SPEND HOURS WRITING CONTENT FOR PEOPLE BECAUSE OF COMMENTS LIKE THIS.

      That’s a message from me if I were you.

      • rob clearly subscribes to the theory that revenge is a dish best served old.

        • xD You got my head scratching for a sec, thinking it was a typo, then I noticed the dates and I went bursting.

        • Well played!

  2. There is a part of me that HATES what is being set for the storyline in A2 and for Ultron, except that I realize just how close Ultron is to being Terminator (although Ultron character was around long before the T-1000 character). Still, I don’t understand why they can’t have Dr. Henry Pym (Ant-Man, Giant-Man, Yellowjacket) as the person for developing and creating the Ultron AI.
    The good news (to me) is knowing the Scarlet Witch will be part of the team, which may also mean the chance to see the Vision in A2 as well. I’ve read that they’re planning on killing off Iron-Man, which I hope is not true. Instead, I would suggest they make the film more up-to-date with the comic, and have Tony go into space with his nano-tech armor as he begins his exploration of the galaxy.

    • Maybe kill him off but preserve him digitally ala ultimate universe version has done this just recently

  3. Okay, I am NOT okay w/ Hank not being responsible for Ultron. I’m not saying the movie won’t be good; I’m sure I will love it. But this just pisses me off to no end.

    • It can’t be Pym because he’s being introduced in Ant Man. You can blame that movie for taking so long to make. The idea for the story of Avengers 2 existed years ago, as was the production of Ant Man. Only that movie just took longer to get penned, cast, and made. But the show must go on.

      • There are other ways around that though. Considering the title of Ant Man isn’t that pleasing, I imagine a lot of people unfamiliar with the comics are not going to be so interested. I figured they would introduce Hank in Ultron, promoting him and giving people interest in him for his own movie, which would come after.

    • Try being a Star Trek fan these days….You learn to live with such things.

  4. i heard theres plans to kill off an important member of the Avengers. i dont know, but my guess is steve rogers, which is captain America. reason why is because the plot in CA2. Maybe Steve Rogers will “die” and bucky will take over as captain. i dont know. just hope it all turns out great.

  5. ive been saying it like crazy with all the reboots and all the new caracters and andrew being signed to four movies as spidey and with GotG and antman on the way as well as antman .. and of course a certain villian showen at the end of A1 – anyone remember a certain series called “Infinity Gautlant”? I did a story about this before and was made to remove it withen hours by studios… a super marvel team up including certain villians (which ironically two of them have been announced in future movies the past month) that took em all to take down a certain purple beast. …. cant remove all my comments. ;-) – Grimpuppy

  6. Absolutely no chance that I’m watching a 30 second commercial for alcohol so that I can watch a minute-long commercial for a movie.

  7. Wow I’m shocked at how many people get mad at a 30 sec commercial. Remember, these forums need a little money to keep the lights on and things running so they can provide us with content. Anyway, great teaser. I’m a little stunned that Marcel’s waiting 3 years to get out another avengers movie. Oh well, in the meantime I will satiate my need for badass sci fi action and super humans and tech reading The Keepers: World War Three

    • Marcel who?

      • Lol!

  8. Maybe the app will give me the ability to make IM3 worth watching

    • It is definitely worth watching, despite the naysayers’ loudmouths. Much better than IM2. You need to keep it separated from the comics though, what they seem unable to do.

      • you can clearly see the robot people, they have no mind or opinion other than the meme that passes for their mind. The bank is God and the executives of God are always right about everything. they have the same FALSE arguments, and these people can not be reasoned with. (in WWIII they will be removed from the world)

        The plot for Avengers II should have been Him and Her. These twins.. This movie is a mess. everyone knows it. Pym probobly will create Ultron. The small mindedness and sycophancy of people does not make movies enjoyable. I’m sure there will be plenty of executive Fan boys will jimmy out for the excitement over their executive decision making. (mostly kids from India) but this not bode well for movies in general. People will not go to movies at all. when the movie crowd get a little older and have to pay for rent… it will be trendy to what ripped classics. They sycophancy is bad flavor that spreads its smell badly. It should have been Warlock.. they will probobly throw him in THE END CREDIT CAMEO. Ultron should be a robot, not a hollywood prop. Uncreative to make it a suit. It’s so uncreative,, one can only imagine the kid from india doing the executive fantasy. The girls will sense their men are indian boys who serve the London tribe for pennies out of their silken coat pockets. people will rush to watch movies on their Beta machines. (having a Beta player will be the King @#$$ in those days)

        Ultron needs to be a robot Pym made sometime, and forgot about.. and it should build it’s body after maybe stealing some proto type Guardsman suit. It should be Shield built project. The human torch synthetoid body.. probobly not going to be used. Why?

        Why. Ms Marvel better have a nice sized rack. this would BS stupid if they don’t do that. if ulron is a blob like metal.. SUPER LAME. Ultron is a Metal dude and Ms marvel has big boobs.

        • Dude, I don’t know what you’re on but it seems to be strong stuff!

      • I loved iron man 2. Why did so many dislike it?

        • Well, it’s not a bad movie per se but after the first one we expected it to be substantially better.

  9. Psst…The Scarlet Witch doesn’t use magic. Her powers are mutant.

    • They can’t cast Scarlet Witch as a mutant, because Fox owns the rights to X-men. So her powers can’t be mutant powers, thus the only alternative is for them to be magic.

    • If y’all know Wanda’s powers, you’d know that she controls “Chaos MAGIC”, even though she’s a mutant. So that’s where magic fits in (and will hopefully bring us Stephen Strange).

  10. JARVIS IS ULTRON, CANT CHANGE WHAT THE COMICS TOLD

    • Uh, yes they can. And do. Not for the first time either, so you should be used to it by now. You shouting won’t magically make them backpedal. It is happening, Joe, deal with it.

  11. I loved Jarvis, he added a funny, snarky sidekick to Ironman. I don’t like the idea of perverting him into a bad guy. Just my 2 cents.

    • Jarvis becomes the vision its already been announced.

      • @Matthew Ritch-

        Where did you read that? I have to look that up.

        It was my hope that the Vision would be in Avengers 2, but I guess he’ll bee seen in the next story phase to take place after A2, as it will no doubt lead to the final battle with Thanos. It’s my hope that Marvel (and/or Disney) will buy out the rights to all the theatrical superhero films, end Avengers 3 as a lead-in to a (titled) ‘Infinity Gauntlet’ movie. The Avengers team up with the X-Men and Fantastic Four, aided by Spider-Man and even Dr. Doom (for his own hidden agenda), and many cosmic beings like Galactus, as they attempt to defeat Thanos.
