Avengers: Age of Ultron First Official Photos and EW Cover
Check out the first official photos and Entertainment Weekly cover for Avengers: Age of Ultron! Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth and Scarlett Johansson star in the superhero sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron. S.H.I.E.L.D. has been destroyed, and there’s no one else for the planet to turn to when menace looms on the horizon. Captain America (Evans), Thor (Hemsworth), Black Widow (Johansson), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), and the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) assemble to defeat the rogue sentient robot Ultron (James Spader), dedicated to conquest and the extermination of humanity.
The good guys are tired, S.H.I.E.L.D. has been destroyed, and there’s no one else for the planet to turn to when menace looms on the horizon. Everyone wants a break—and that’s exactly how they’re about to be broken. There’s no abdicating heroism. For better or worse, Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) has devised a plan that won’t require him to put on the Iron Man suit anymore, and should allow Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), and the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) to get some much needed R&R as well. His solution is Ultron, self-aware, self-teaching, artificial intelligence designed to help assess threats, and direct Stark’s Iron Legion of drones to battle evildoers instead. The only problem? Ultron (James Spader) lacks the human touch, and his superior intellect quickly determines that life on Earth would go a lot smoother if he just got rid of Public Enemy No. 1: Human beings.
