The folks over Joblo have posted what they claim to be spoiler tidbits regarding the next year's highly-anticipated Avengers: Age of Ultron. The site has previously posted some Guardians of the Galaxy spoilers which have, for the most part, turned out to be legit. Therefore, read the following with caution even though these so-called spoilers are considerably minor. Anyhow, it is first mentioned that we'll see three different versions of the titular villain, Ultron, which writer/director Joss Whedon has confirmed in the past. "His original state is very rudimentary, but he's constantly upgrading" throughout the film. "He is coated in Vibranium and spends the film seeking out more of the raw material to continue his 'upgrades,'" reveals the source. "James Spader is playing the titular villain and our source says that he will be doing mo-cap for at least one iteration of the character, meaning that Ultron may be much more than "just a helmet" at some point." And like we all expected after seeing the Avengers Tower in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, "Tony Stark is indeed bankrolling The Avengers this time out. With the dissolution of S.H.I.E.L.D. in The Winter Soldier and it's subsequent "handover" to Phil Coulson in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Tony Stark takes on the role of global security by housing The Avengers in the former Stark Tower, now Avengers Tower, where he funds new tech, new costumes, and even a new Quinjet."
It's then revealed that the "Iron Legion" will
return appear in Avengers: Age of Ultron, although that may not be what they are called in the film. "Tony Stark/Iron Man has created an army of Iron Man 'drones' (much like he utilized at the end of Iron Man 3) and uses them to 'keep the peace.' The Avengers are not in hiding or attempting to keep a low profile. They are very public and 'out' about their intention of keeping the world safe, especially with the absence of S.H.I.E.L.D." As for costumes, Joblo further suggest thats "all (or most) of The Avengers will be rocking an Avengers logo on their costumes, courtesy of the upgrade to each superhero's duds, thanks to Stark," which we got a peek at when Chris Evans was seen costumed and filming in South Korea months ago. "Black Widow will have 2 batons that have shocking ability as part of her new arsenal and Hawkeye will indeed be rocking the long sleeve jacket that is reminiscent of his comics costume. Hulk will now be wearing "stretchy pants" that grow and shrink with him when he goes back and forth between Banner and Hulk." As for The Vision, played by Paul Bettany, his costume is "said to retain the green/yellow color scheme, albeit with the usual Marvel Cinematic upgrade. Our source indicates that, much like Ultron, Vision is not expected to make his final, full reveal until the third act of the film. The how and why of that is wide open for discussion, but it makes sense. I wouldn't be surprised if Vision makes the "sacrifice play" for this one, but that's just my feeling."
