SDCC '14: First Look At 'Ultron Mark 1' From AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON?

We caught a glimpse of this yesterday, but now a much better photo has been taken of what appears to be the first body that the villainous Ultron (played by The Blacklist's James Spader) builds for himself in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Hit the jump to check it out!

Hank Pym not being Ultron's creator in Avengers: Age of Ultron is one major change, but now it seems like we should expect another. Based on the footage description for the movie (which you can read by clicking here), it sounds as if Tony Stark will be responsible only for the creation of the Ultron A.I. and not his first physical form. What you see below appears to be the first crude body that the villain builds for himself when he attacks Earth's Mightiest Heroes for the first time in Avengers Tower. Talk about a Frankenstein feel, eh? What do you guys think? 



Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Cobie Smulders, Don Cheadle, Paul Bettany, James Spader, and Samuel L. Jackson, and is set to be released on May 1st, 2015.

Looks cool. I'm guessing that's after the Avengers destroyed his first version.
NovaCorpsFan - 7/27/2014, 11:40 AM
I already love Ultron, purely based on what dialogue we have from him and especially the line, "No strings on me." That's chilling and [frick]ing badass at the same time.
TheGambitFreakIsBatmanOfCBM - 7/27/2014, 11:41 AM
Yeah, this is known... The description from yesterday matched the pics from the floor.
kinghulk - 7/27/2014, 11:41 AM
i must see that footage now. why cant it just be may 2015 already :(
DaVinci31 - 7/27/2014, 11:42 AM
Spooky.
Darktower - 7/27/2014, 11:43 AM
Ya ya.. al these r fine and dandy .. but we want the AOU trailer !!!
charlie2094 - 7/27/2014, 11:44 AM
Pretty cool, guessing this is a version of it that's been smashed to pieces by the Avengers
PymParticle - 7/27/2014, 11:44 AM
Something just hit me. In one of Wardell's tweets he wrote that the "DUM-E" that Stark salvaged at the end of Iron Man 3 would be how Ultron constructs his first form.

After seeing this that seems very likely. The Ultron AI will probably hack and take over all of the "tools" and bots in Tony's workshop in Avengers tower and use it to construct this crude form.
EzioKenway1225 - 7/27/2014, 11:45 AM
NovaCorpsfan-me too,so good!!!
Missy - 7/27/2014, 11:45 AM
So he has no legs in the scene or just the prop?
PymParticle - 7/27/2014, 11:45 AM
BTW. Why would Ultron choose this crude bad design over just uploading himself into one of the Iron Legion armors? Which are clearly superior.

You could make the argument that those are being governed by Jarvis, but Jarvis would also notice if Ultron started to construct a body for himself.
PymParticle - 7/27/2014, 11:46 AM
@cosmiclord Big chance this prop is how "Ultron" looks after the party scene fight. Probably ripped in half by Thor / Hulk!
ProfessorX - 7/27/2014, 11:46 AM
I was just imagining Ultron singing this and it's really creepy:

ProfessorX - 7/27/2014, 11:47 AM
I've got no strings
To hold me down
To make me fret, or make me frown
I had strings
But now I'm free
There are no strings on me
EzioKenway1225 - 7/27/2014, 11:48 AM
professorx-oh man!!!!
wcwpoet - 7/27/2014, 11:49 AM
Please dammit someone release the footage. I can't take it LOL
Maestro - 7/27/2014, 11:49 AM
@pym

Agree. This is probably after the fight. In the trailer description, it said he was walking. Limping/ zombie walking to an extent because he was haphazardly put together, but still walking.
wcwpoet - 7/27/2014, 11:51 AM
Agreed with an earlier poster the dialogue has me sold already. I'm just imagining hearing Spader's voice stating it and I can't wait!!!!!!!!!!!
Maestro - 7/27/2014, 11:51 AM
@professorX

Yeah man! Damn, this movie is going to be so creepy, dark, and apocalyptic. I've been hearing those words alot.

The description of Ultron is in this video. For those who havent seen it. @1:40



FirstAvenger - 7/27/2014, 11:51 AM
Haha that's cool!
PymParticle - 7/27/2014, 11:52 AM
@Maestro Still don't understand though. Why would he do that when he has access to the entire Iron Legion suit to upload himself to? Seems like a big plothole.

From what we learned in the teaser description he's commanding the entire Iron Legion to attack the Avengers so he could've uploaded himself into one.
EzioKenway1225 - 7/27/2014, 11:53 AM
Whedon said that while this movie will have lots of humor and action... it will be a' little bit scarier, a little funkier and a little more grown up" then the first one
Celotom - 7/27/2014, 11:54 AM
@PymParticle, we don't know yet if it's really Iron Legion. And you can't say that is a plothole, we know nothing about Ultron yet!
Celotom - 7/27/2014, 11:55 AM
@EzioKenway1225, he said that it's not too dark, too. There'll be a lot of humor, but there's a differential from the first movie: all actions has consequences, and the characters are more mature.
DrKinsolving - 7/27/2014, 11:56 AM
Nice, really want to know who Serkis is playing and I hope the footage leaks soon
Arrowhead77 - 7/27/2014, 11:56 AM
Or maybe a Vision prototype?
Celotom - 7/27/2014, 11:57 AM
@DrKinsolving, a friend of mine who was there said that there was a person in front of him filming everything! I just hope he will be a good guy and post for us :(
GeekyCheekyChic - 7/27/2014, 11:57 AM
Sweet....now footage
TheAmbassador - 7/27/2014, 11:58 AM
they did use this crazy creepy slow vocal version of the song "I've Got No Strings" from Disney's "Pinocchio," thematically appropriate since much of this movie deals with Tony Stark's guilt over his creations and how they get away from him.


I need that song edit. It would be great filler until they actually showed footage
SauronsBANE - 7/27/2014, 11:58 AM
"Still don't understand though. Why would he do that when he has access to the entire Iron Legion suit to upload himself to? Seems like a big plothole."

If you're referring to the Iron Legion suits from Iron Man 3, didn't Tony destroy all of them? Perhaps Ultron is forced to pick through all the scraps of suits that are left over and build himself up from that.
DeusExSponge - 7/27/2014, 11:58 AM
ProfessorX - Wow, Spader singing that would be a combination of awesome and creepy! This makes me wonder how creepy and messed up Ultron is, can't wait to see how it all goes down when Ultron gains his final form.
BritishMonkey - 7/27/2014, 11:58 AM
I'd say that's a first look of Ultron.
MrHighway - 7/27/2014, 12:01 PM
2 spooky 4 me
EzioKenway1225 - 7/27/2014, 12:01 PM
Celotom-yeah cause remeber, Whedon is also the guy who said this quote"“Make it dark, make it grim, make it tough, but then, for the love of God, tell a joke.”
DrKinsolving - 7/27/2014, 12:01 PM
@Celotom

I hope he posts it

DrKinsolving - 7/27/2014, 12:04 PM
I think this is awesome and it should come off amazing on screen, the beginnings of Ultron, and Ultron is supposed to be creepy especially with Spader, so I think it fits perfectly, and from the description Ultron evolves into the more sleek suit at the end of the teaser
Maestro - 7/27/2014, 12:05 PM
@pym

I don't know. I'm not too sure. But there's so much we don't know about Yltron and how he upgrades in this film, so there probably could be so many explanations honestly.
EzioKenway1225 - 7/27/2014, 12:10 PM
i have a feeling that this is his first form.. i think Tony was in progress making him
Maestro - 7/27/2014, 12:15 PM
Iiiiiiii've got no strings,
To make me fret, or make me frown.
I had strings.
But now I'm free.....
There are no strings on me.......

This song is stuck in my head now. Lol. I REALLY want to hear Spader's version of it.
XF14 - 7/27/2014, 12:16 PM
Interesting to see the Black/Gold helmet, definitely a mix and match of various suits...

Cool stuff from SDCC, but definitely not worth paying for.
