AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON Rumors: The Look of Ultron, Avengers Tower, the Costumes, and More

by     Posted 181 days ago

avengers-age-of-ultron

Almost ever Marvel movie thus far has changed up the heroes’ costume.  They’ve ranged from major changes like the Mach XVII armor from Iron Man 3 to subtle ones like Black Widow’s catsuit from Iron Man 2 adding color to the belt buckle in The AvengersAvengers: Age of Ultron will continue this tradition with new additions to the outfits that will provide more of a team dynamic.  JoBlo reports that all new costumes will be adorned with the Avengers “A” logo, including “Hulk’s ‘extendable’ pants (dark purple in color) that expand and shrink with his Hulk/Banner transitions.”

Hit the jump for more details on the Avengers: Age of Ultron costumes, the Avengers Tower, the Quinjet, and the look of the film’s big bad, Ultron (voiced by James Spader).  The film stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany, and Mark RuffaloAvengers: Age of Ultron opens May 1, 2015.  [Minor spoilers ahead]

avengers-concept-art-black-widow-scarlett-johanssonJoBlo breaks down what we’ll be seeing when it comes to new outfits:

  • Black Widow’s costume update will feature not only the previously reported batons, but her suit is said to be more “TRON-style” in nature with blue lights and electricity around the suit. Her enemies will now receive electric shocks or a “widow’s sting” when she hits them, giving her more of a “superhero” edge amongst her super-powered counterparts.

I hope there’s a moment where Widow shows she can shock someone and then Thor calls down a gigantic bolt of lightning.

  • Stark wears the Mark 43, a suit with less gold on it than IRON MAN 3, but still more than in THE AVENGERS. The chest core reactor will be back to the circular shape favored by director Joss Whedon. The Mark 44 is the Hulkbuster and will be his other suit in the film.

So does this mean the core reactor is back even though Tony threw it away at the end of Iron Man 3?  Perhaps it’s not really all that necessary since Iron Man 3 showed that the core doesn’t power the suit anymore; he can charge it with a car battery if need be.

  • The Vision will be 100 percent Paul Bettany with his face and body all in metallic form, very shiny with gold, red, and green (as well as the yellow cape).

age-of-ultron-comic-bookA few years back, that may have been too much for audiences, and they would consider it silly.  At this point, they’ve hopefully been acclimated to this kind of colorful outfit.

  • Ultron will be more than just a helmet, with his full face being articulated, including the mouth. All movements from James Spader’s face are used to bring more personality to the villain. The suit mock-up is reminiscent of the weapon that Agent Coulson used to shoot Loki in THE AVENGERS, which was made from the parts of the defeated Destroyer in THOR. The suit is said to have a “red firelight underneath, giving him a kind of ‘Balrog’ effect from LOTR.”

JoBlo adds that he’ll also have an army of drones (great for big battle scenes, I presume) and they’ll look like Ultron “minus the glowing red ‘energy’ effect.

The Avengers will also be getting an upgrade in their digs and rides.  A sleeker Quinjet will also be bigger so it can hold all of the Avengers.  It will also be outfitted with more weapons.

Finally, the Avengers tower will be “‘Stark style’ in nature, meaning excessive and over-the-top.”  Would we expect anything less?

    Every time I remember the Paul Bettany is actually in this, as opposed to just voicing JARVIS, I smile a little inside.

        So, you call me a mook because of a simple misunderstanding? Which NO ONE ELSE understood due to internet context.. Real mature.

        So, you’re an insignificant troll? Got it. Glad we established that. This was all because of a misunderstanding (which yes, other people had trouble comprehending. Where most of us saw “What’s vision?” “Not until it becomes ultron” instead of you replying to the google response.
        I don’t have a lack of comprehension of the situation now, you’re just being an asshole. if that amuses you, then you’re one sad sack of shit. Grow the fuck up.

        Every response from you illustrates how you’re a sad sack of shit. Oh, he misunderstood me, let’s insult him, THEN after the misunderstanding is cleared up, let’s continue with the childish insults. The funny part is, I was SO close to apologizing for the misunderstanding, but you proved that internet trolls reign over common courtesy.

      • Giovanni Luis Jiminez

        Agreed but i too would prefer a concise version from a fan explaining it in our MCU context relating to the article and not the entire history of all the versions of The Vision. So there’s that as well.

      • Giovanni Luis Jiminez

        I’ts also a slight bit laziness, but then again isnt wikipedia as well. Now we’re just arguing semantics, point is dont judge.

      • stephens

        I’m all for human interaction and teaching too, which is why I reached out to the community on here. Thought I’d receive a better response, but whatever. Also thought maybe someone could provide a link to a previous article where the idea of Vision was mentioned as being in the Avengers 2. I’m happy to go ahead and Google what exactly Vision is, but the iteration of Vision may be completely different in the comics from what they’re planning in the movies. Thanks for making me feel great about myself everyone! I’ll go fuck off now.

        That’s really damn dramatic. You choose how to react to things. Take care man, nobody was trying to make you feel bad- apologies for that.

        Hank Pym (Ant-Man) builds Ultron, Ultron turns genocidal.
        Ultron builds Vision.
        Vision turns out to be heroic.
        He’s a badass android superhero.

        “The Vision is described as being “…every inch a human being—except that all of his bodily organs are constructed of synthetic materials.” The Solar Jewel on the Vision’s forehead absorbs ambient solar energy to provide the needed power for him to function, and he is also capable of discharging this energy as optic beams; with this, he can fire beams of infrared and microwave radiation. In extreme cases he can discharge this same power through the Solar Jewel itself which amplifies its destructive effects considerably, albeit at the cost of losing most of his resources. The Vision also possesses the ability to manipulate his density, which at its lowest allows flight and a ghostly, phasing intangibility, and at its heaviest provides superhuman strength, immovability, and a diamond-hard near invulnerability. The Vision is capable of reaching a density ten times greater than that of depleted uranium. On one occasion, the Vision uses this extreme durability to render unconscious the villain Count Nefaria. The Vision often uses his ability to alter his density against foes, by phasing an intangible hand through them and then partially re-materializing it—a process he describes as “physical disruption.” This effect typically causes great pain and results in incapacitation, as is the case when used against the Earth-712 version of the hero Hyperion. Being an artificial life-form/android of sorts, the Vision possesses multiple superhuman senses—as well as superhuman stamina, reflexes, speed, agility, and strength (even without being at high density). The Vision was trained in unarmed combat by Captain America, and is an expert in the combat use of his superhuman powers. The Vision is an expert on his own construction and repair, and is a highly skilled tactician and strategist. The Vision controls his density by interfacing with an unknown dimension to/from which he can shunt or accrue mass, thus becoming either intangible or extraordinarily massive. The Vision also possesses superhuman analytical capabilities, and has the ability to process information and make calculations with superhuman speed and accuracy.”

        He’s one of the main Avengers, alongside Ant-Man, Wasp, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver.

  • TigerFIST

    I CAN’T WAIT FOR THIS!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m thinking it will make at least 2.2 billion at box office worldwide if it’s as good as the first. Anyone agree?

    • RecoveR

      Considering the box office, critical and commercial success of the first Avengers- I’d bet Age of Ultron tops the first by a margin, because everyone (hopefully) will be flocking to see these characters again.i know i’ll be going atleast 3 times myself!

      • Andrew Sanders

        I hope it brings in enough box office dosh to knock Cameron’s Avatar & Titanic off the top grossing films ever!

    • Ridge

      I don’t know… 2.2 is too much, maybe if the studio re-release it after 3 or 4 months after it’s initial date then could earn 2 billions

      • TigerFIST

        They wouldn’t release it that early b/c it will still be in theaters. On average these films stay in theaters for 3-4 months. Maybe 8-10 months down the line especially if it’s nominating for an Oscar. YES I DID SAY OSCAR. LOTR killed in it in 2003 and this has potential with all the talent.

    • bidi

      i don’t think so. i think the only reason Avatar made that much was because it was something you HAD to see in 3D or imax 3D. i saw the Avengers in 3D and you’re not missing much by seeing it in 2D (i almost exclusively go to movies in 2D). i don’t see Avengers 2 being one of those things like Avatar or Gravity where you’re missing out if you don’t fork over the extra dough

      • Andrew Sanders

        You’re right there,…Avatar, Gravity & Life of Pi were all amazing experiences in 3D.I watched Avengers in both formats & found the 3D aspect somewhat lacking, sometimes resembling effects from the old Flash Gordon movie! Still a terrific film though!

    • Aquartertoseven

      It’s unprecedented, a sequel to such a massive, massive film. The first film in the series (you know what I mean by that). It should earn more, but whether it’s only $100-200m more or $500, it’s anyone’s guess. I’ll go with $1.8b.

      • TigerFIST

        Unprecedented? It still could happen. If the movie is considered better than the first by audiences and critics and gives us one of the MOST EPIC end battles our senses can stand it will easily make 2.2 Billion World Wide.

      • Aquartertoseven

        But what are you basing that on? Films that did well and the sequel that did amazingly well? Well this film already did amazingly well.

      • Melwing

        Unprecedented? Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars….

      • Aquartertoseven

        Unprecedented in terms of the Avengers being the first film. There were half a dozen or so Potter films before a billion dollar one, they all built a little bit on the one before. The highest grossing Potter film still wasn’t close to Avengers.

        LOTR- FOTR- 800, TTT- 900, ROTK- 1.1b. They built a little bit upon the preceding film.

        Star Wars, the originals are a good parallel but they’re so old that it’s hard to compare. The 2nd prequel was down 1/3rd on the The Phantom Menace.

      • Falco

        Marvel is more widely bought and celebrated than LOTR and HP combined. Regardless of whose fanbase is bigger, Marvel has the most wide appeal than any pop culture around today. And now that they’re in (what seems to be) the most polished and perfected state they’ve ever been in — there’s no stopping them.

      • Aquartertoseven

        Polished? Perfected? Perhaps you need to watch Thor 2 and Cap 2. More like badly made and written in the case of the former and completely underdone for the latter.

      • Bob

        Cap 2 sir is an amazing film. Easily in top 5 greatest superhero films for me.

      • Aquartertoseven

        If you have absolutely no standards, sure. If you despise character development and a decent story, I can see why you’d put it above films that actually have substance.

      • Melwing

        Falco, I would agree completely with what you said- except about that first bit- Harry Potter and LOTR are the 3rd and 4th best selling/most printed books of the last 50 years, trailing only The Bible and a chinese communist book. That reach far exceeds certainly that of any specific comic book (or perhaps *all* comic books).

        But, yes, I know that doesn’t directly translate to movies- I just wanted to point that out, since you phrased it as “Marvel is more widely bought and celebrated…”

      • Falco

        I can’t argue with those statistics, but I was referring to it more as a consumer brand, not necessarily restricted to literature. I’m not sure how many Marvel “fans” read the source material (I know in general comic sales have been down), but people buy a hell of a lot of Marvel products.

      • tipster4

        You realize a typical mainstream hero comic sells 50-75K per month. A big one (Batman, Spider-Man) sells in excess of 100,000 per month. Over a million per year for a single title. Combine all the Spider-Man titles, easily 2.5 million books per year. Total comic book sales in May 2014 were about 7 million. That’s over 80 million per year. Total Harry Potter book sales are 450 million over a 14 year span. Total comic sales are definitely higher in that window. [I speak of first time sales only...not resales at used book stores or trade shows-in that case comics would be far higher going by the sheer number of conventions and existence of comic shops.] But you are correct….this is more than any single comic book in a specific time. But consider this…Spiderman has been around for 50 years (Batman 75 years). Its a pretty safe bet he’ll be around another 50. Harry….maybe…maybe not. Its also a safe bet the Spider guy or the Bat guy will have a bunch more movies. Harry…..well…maybe another if Rowling does finish another book. As far as collectability value, Harry has a long way to go before he catches up. So does Tolkein, for that matter. So, sir, you are not incorrect. I just wanted to give you a few numbers to throw about for perspective. BTW…the Goosebumps series is second to Harry…even more than LOTR + Hobbit. But then, there are something like 70 Goosebumps books….

      • Melwing

        Fair enough, but ‘The Avengers’ was not the “first film”. It was the next episode in a series of films.

      • Aquartertoseven

        You know what I mean though, it is the first Avengers film. The solo film don’t compare to it.

      • Melwing

        No, it is a direct continuation of the story from several films, mentioned straight from the first film where the ‘Avengers initiative’ is mentioned. It really is a ‘sequel’, it is just a ‘sequel’ to several other connected films. Anyway, I’m not really for debate. It truly doesn’t matter LOL :P

      • ieyke

        It was the *counts* sixth film.
        It was unprecedented in terms of being the first film to seamlessly merge 4 blockbuster franchises into a single crazyballs awesome movie.

      • Aquartertoseven

        It was the first Avengers film and it was gigantic. Who knows how big the sequel will be.

    • http://www.collider.com/ DNAsplitter

      Not sure. Personally I think it’ll earn a hair less. Not that I want it to do bad but I think some of the magic of seeing all of these heroes together in the 1st place is what got people so excited so it’ll be hard to pull that off for a 2nd time.

      • ieyke

        Not a chance.
        It’s probably going to come close to doubling the Avengers.
        In case you’re not paying attention, EVERY SINGLE MCU movie has been massively outdoing its predecessors since the Avengers, and you’d be crazy to think that The Avengers sequel itself wouldn’t continue that trend.

    • milo

      Tough one to guess, but if I had to I’d say less domestic but a little more worldwide. The last one made about 1.5B so 2.2 seems unrealistically high.

      I wonder if Marvel is going totally nuts on the budget with this one because they know they can.

      • TigerFIST

        yeah but the first did so well but had flaws. The end scene wasn’t long enough and they had the hiccup in the middle of the film. Even Joss Whedon said it himself (on the bluray Avengers) commentary that he didn’t have the budget he needed for the end battle. They had to cut out half of the hawkeye/black widow team up in the street, they would have had more aliens doing alien stuff, and a ton of more HULK. He stated they just didn’t have the budget. Now I’m sure he will and it will possibly be the next game changer.

      • ieyke

        Actually, at just a 150% of the first movie’s box office, 2.25 billion isn’t actually all that unrealistic.
        Iron Man 3 was a ~200% increase, Dark World was ~150% increase, Winter Soldier was a 191% increase.

        IF it were to follow the pattern, 3 billion’s not out of the question for Age Of Ultron.

    • Falco

      I think it will be very close to 2 billion. Big franchise sequels usually top their first films — and this is the big momma of franchises. Arguably, this is the biggest franchise in cinema history.

      • ieyke

        That’s not really arguable.
        There’s no franchise within a million miles of the scale of the MCU.

        Harry Potter and Star Wars are the next closest thing.

        Unless maybe if you count James Bond, but that’s essentially just constant reboots.

      • Falco

        I guess Star Wars is the only “arguable” example I can think of, which does give Marvel a run for its money (and now Marvel comics even owns the rights to the Star Wars comics – crazy!). The thing with Star Wars is that everything except the 6 canon films are spin-offs from the books, toys, and video games. So then again, you might be right about it not being arguable.

  • Flavio Hilario

    I know the movie is overstuffed already, but I would have loved to seen at least a bit of Falcon in this. Even if it was just the civilian version out of costume.

    • Falco

      Agreed. I’m unfamiliar with the source material, but I’m sure he’ll be with them in time. Don Cheadle will be in Avengers 2, and that’s only after the Iron Man trilogy and the first Avengers film. Falcon will be in Captain America 3, and then Avengers 3, I’m assuming.

    • ieyke

      Actually, Falcon’s supposed to be in Age Of Ultron, in some capacity.

      • Bob

        I really hope so…he said he would follow Cap anywhere…and when he need’s as much help as possible with Ultron Falcon is no where to be found? He has to at least just come of the climatic battle scene. I think they all shoukd. Cap, Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, Widow, Hawkeye, War Machine, Hawkeye, Vision, Quicksilver, and Scarlet Witch should all be in that final battle scene which would honestly be one of the greatest sights in film of this century so far.

    Speaking of that weapon that Coulson shot Loki with in The Avengers, I never got what was the big deal with that. Coulson remarks how they started working on the prototype after the Destroyer was sent, and “even I don’t know what it does”.

    Well, all it did was pretty much just shoot, right? I mean, whether it’s a bullet made of metal, or just some concentrated blast of energy, the basic physics of how any old firearm were still at play at the heart of it, right? It may have been a REALLY BIG gun, but it was still just a gun. He pulled the trigger, and some form of ammunition exited the barrel and hit the target in front of him, in this case, Loki.

    • ieyke

      You know that giant god-killing beam that the Destroyer fired out of its face?
      Yea, SHIELD made a gun out of that.
      It was humans building stuff waaaaay beyond their level.

      The point wasn’t “Is this a gun?” so much as “Just HOW powerful is this gun based on a weapon designed to kill mythological god beings? Dunno. Haven’t tested it yet.”
      Could’ve blown up the Helicarrier if it didn’t work properly, or it could’ve done nothing.

  • Bob

    Just imagine this,

    Thor fighting with Hulk at his side both going nuts against a hundred or more Ultron Clones. Then in the Sky we got Iron Man, War Machine, and Falcon flying in circles with each other going nuts. Then we have Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch duo faceing off againt a bunch of Ultron clones. And then we have Cap, Widow, Hawkeye, and Vision trying to go aginst Ultron himself. Maybe Falcon flys in with Vision to help out. Would just be so amazing.

    • Tina

      I’m liking your vision for this film. It would be great if Falcon did show up for the final battle.

    Oh, and this seriously might just pass Titanic at the box office. It could come close to Avatar if word of mouth is insane positive but I doubt it.

  • Coulter James

    I’m a sucker for good villains, so all I want is a scene where Ultron beats the crap out of the Avengers (preferably all at once) before they find a way to beat him. Just imagine, he has them either all at his feet or fleeing, then Hulk tries to lunge at him, and he just catches Hulk by the throat, beats him half to death, then drops him with the rest.
