MARVEL's Avengers: Age of Ultron is going to be amazing! However, I'm not as excited about the movie itself ( WHICH IS FREAKIN" EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!), as I am about what the film will bring to the MARVEL Cinematic Universe in the future.
I believe that Age of Ultron's sole purpose is to set everything else into motion for phases three and four. There was nothing really leading up to it as we saw with the first Avengers film. This time, the Avengers film will be leading up to the solo films. Sadly, Ultron, one of the most powerful Avengers villains ever, had to be the villain they just stuffed in the movie, unless they've got HUGE plans for Ultron in future films.
But now it's time for you all to get comfortable in your chairs for a few minutes whilst I list all the awesome things Age of Ultron might be setting up for us.
First of all.....
THE CIVIL WAR!!!!!!!!!!
The Civil War is basically a war between Iron Man and Captain America, each with their followers. They fight over the Super Human Registration Act, which forces heroes to register and join S.H.I.E.L.D. Cap against it and Stark enforcing it.
We can obviously see tensions rising between the members of the Avengers. We see Thor....
getting pretty dang ticked off at Tony for some reason. We see Cap.....
get really ticked as well. And then.....
WE SEE HULK FIGHTING IRON MAN, and...
in a straight jacket!!!!!!
This obviously shows that the Hulk is out of control and is attacking the Avengers, or it could mean that the editors of the trailer cleverly put those scenes together to mislead us...which they always do.
But I think that one purpose of this particular motion picture is to lead up to the Civil War in Cap 3.
Another thing is....
Iron Man, Black Bolt, and Doctor Strange are all either in the films already, or are announced to be. The only other three members are Professor X and Mr. Fantastic (whom MARVEL doesn't own) and then Namor (whom they could easily introduce.
It would be incredibly easy to band this team, minus Prof. X and Mr. F of course, and it would make sense to, because of the next thing on my list, which is......
Planet Hulk and/or World War Hulk!!!!!!!!!!
Based on my speculations above, it sounds like they're really ready to send Hulk off into space. For those of you who don't know what in the world I'm talking about when I say Planet Hulk or World War Hulk, it's when the Illuminati decide that Hulk is too dangerous and launch him into space. He ends up on Sakkarr and becomes a gladiator slave. In World War Hulk, he becomes king and then returns to Earth, along with some friends from Sakkarr, and declares war in the planet.
MARVEL already announced that certain elements of the first Age of Ultron trailer pointed directly to the Black Panther movie. The most obvious is Klaw, played by Andy Serkis.
Klaw is a villain who often battles the Black Panther in order to attain the Vibranium mound within Panther's country of Wakanda. If you don't know what Vibranium is, it's what Captain America's shield is made of. So yeah, powerful stuff and Wakanda is the only place on Earth that it's found.
Also, in the trailer, we see several soldiers shooting in Africa, which is where Wakanda is. It is my belief that the events of this film will lead directly into the Black Panther, whom I believe to be the best new character they're introducing, ya know, besides Daredevil.
The Inhumans are humanish alienish beings created by an alien species called the Kree, to be super powered warrior-servants. How they will tie into the movie is simple. The Twins!!!! Scarlett Witch and Quicksilver that is. Quicksilver marries the Inhuman, Crystal, the younger sister of the queen of the Inhumans. So, with an Inhumans movie coming out fairly soon, it'd make sense to have them show up or at least be mentioned in AoU.
It is even rumored that Scarlett Witch and Quicksilver are Inhumans themselves!!!! This would be because they can't call them mutants, like they really are, since Fox owns the rights (curse you Fox).
Also, another thing I hope they do is the Defenders. Now, I know they already said they're gonna have the Defenders mini series with Daredevil, Luke Cage, and all them, but I mean the ACTUAL Defenders like Hulk, Doc. Strange, Namor, and Silver Surfer. They already have Hulk, they'll have Strange next year, and, like I said above, they could easily add in Namor. MARVEL just needs to get the rights to Silver Surfer already (curse you Fox). Either that, or they could substitute him for Valkyrie, whom has joined them on several occasions. It would also add a female character.
Well, let's recap a little here. We've got Civil War (woop woop), Illuminati, Planet Hulk and/or World War Hulk, Black Panther, and the Inhumans, plus hoping for Defenders.
What do y'all think though? You guys ready for these things to happen or what!!!!!
