Holy Sh*T! Just when you think news has died down ahead of Comic-Con, Entertainment Weekly has revealed it's new cover for their latest magazine!
If you are lame, like me, and aren't subscribed to the magazine, you will only be focusing on the cover which shows Ultron in full glory! Ok yes, Tony Stark's new Iron Man Suit is posed with Captain America's new digs, but c'mon ULTRON is the big reveal! He looks like a straight up beast, and there is a lot more to him than meets the eye! His character seems to be very deep and Joss Whedon isn't shy about revealing some tidbits...
"Ultron sees the big picture and he goes, ‘Okay, we need radical change, which will be violent and appalling, in order to make everything better’; he’s not just going ‘Muhaha, soon I’ll rule!" he also continues to say, "He’s on a mission; He wants to save us."
The interview laid out in the magazine, details that Ultron stems from Tony Stark's ambition to stay away from superhero antics for a while. Stark creates him for the sole purpose to be the leading front man for his new Iron Legion, but Ultron becomes self aware that Humans are a danger and in order to save the Earth he, Ultron, has to embrace a darker side.
This gives a certain chill down my spine. Director Joss Whedon has gone on record saying that it will be darker and there will be death, but just how serious the tone will be is left to our imagination.
The new design is AWESOME. I'm so excited and glad that it looks nothing like the first "reveal" a couple months back:
Instead we get something a little closer to comic, and it bears a similar resemblance to this version:
I can't wait for a full reveal next week at Comic-Con! What do you think of his new design? Sound off below!
