Was AGE OF ULTRON A Precursor To Ultron Appearing In A Marvel Studios Movie?
At Marvel's C2E2 Age of Ultron panel in Chicago, one fan asked Senior Vice President of Publishing Tom Brevoort whether the event is a way of setting the stage for Ultron to appear in a Marvel Studios movie. Hit the jump to find out his answer!
Joss Whedon has already teased the introduction of a certain brother and sister duo in his sequel to The Avengers, but will they and the rest of Earth's Mightiest Heroes be facing off against Ultron? As we already know, the comic and movie divisions are very separate, with the former often reflecting what happens in the latter rather than the other way around. With Age of Ultron actually delayed since before the superhero ensemble was even released, it is of course unlikely that it has anything to do with what Marvel Studios has planned for their next instalment. Even so, Tom Brevoort certainly thinks it's a possibility and it's unlikely that Kevin Feige won't have noticed the popularity of this series or the character! Many thanks to Newsarama for the following.
Was Age of Ultron intended to set the stage for the title villain to appear in a Marvel Studios film? "My guess is, probably sooner or later if they do enough Avengers films, they'll get to Ultron," Brevoort says. "We didn't do Age of Ultron specifically for that. However, since we're so integrated at Marvel, I wouldn't be surprised if they got to that point at some point, to see some elements that may have happened during Age of Ultron or any of the previous Ultron stories, make it into a film. But that's just conjecture on my part."
