SHIELD put together the Avenger initiative to deal with threats that were too powerful for the agency to handle on its own. The Avengers would be summoned as a last resort to combat these kinds of massive threats. The comic version brought the Avengers together to battle enemies that they could not defeat alone. The movie will bring the Avengers together to battle a superior villain. The first film brought the Avengers together to battle Loki. The second movie will bring them together to battle multiple threats.
Baron Wolfgang Von Strucker
Wolfgang Von Strucker is the leader of Hydra. Hydra is the terrorist organization that was founded during World War II by the Red Skull. Hydra later infiltrated SHIELD and virtually destroyed the organization. Now Hydra will play some sort of role in the latest Avengers movie. Hydra has been an ongoing enemy of Captain America. The Avengers may not face a single villain with Von Strucker but may have to do battle with an entire organization.
Fans got a first look at Von Strucker in the closing scene of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. He was in some type of laboratory observing the Maximoff twins, Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch. The lab contained the staff of Loki setting in the background.
Ultron is a robotic enemy with artificial intelligence and the ability to learn and adapt. Each time the Avengers battle Ultron, he becomes better at fighting them. The robot has advanced weaponry to combat almost any situation and due to his intelligence, Ultron can develop new and better weapons. In addition to the advanced weapons, Ultron is covered an adamantium shell that makes him virtually indestructible. Adamantium is the same metal that covers Wolverine’s bones and claws. Ultron is the ultimate fighting machine and will be strong enough to battle the core team of Avengers.
Rumors are swirling that Thanos would make an appearance in the new Avengers movie. It is still unknown what extent Thanos will be part of the story line. There is a likelihood that Thanos will have a minimal role in the movie. The main villain is obviously Ultron. Thanos will appear in the Guardians of the Galaxy and may give us a better picture of what might happen in the Age of Ultron. The Avengers series is building to a coming confrontation with Thanos.
Fans will be eagerly awaiting the latest threat that the Avengers will have to face. The villains and their plans will be revealed when the Avengers Age of Ultron finally hits theaters. The movie comes to theaters on May 1 2015 in the United States.
