New, 8 comments

This short featurette on the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron doesn't tell us much we didn't already know, although it does feature a bit more footage and some dialog we haven't heard before.

It's interesting to hear Captain America talk about containment instead of a "win" in the face of overwhelming odds, and Joss Whedon's insight that Ultron's logic is clouded by anger is also a hint at how the character is, for lack of a better term, humanized. Also, does anyone else think Whedon sounds a bit like James Spader's voice acting as Ultron?

Take a look:

There has been other news lately as well, including a full poster for The Vision that shows Paul Bettany, who voiced Stark's AI "JARVIS" in previous Iron Man films.

Just in case you're not spoiled enough, Entertainment Weekly has released some information from the magazine's cover story that gives us some background into these characters.

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.’ "

I bet you come put together what happens next. Avengers: Age of Ultron will be released on May 1.
