A large photo of the merchandising tie-in LEGO sets for Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” has gone online and in the process seems to reveal some big moments in the film and which characters will be involved in some key action sequences.
Of course, the shot may be purely for promotional purposes only and don’t expect each of the scenarios depicted to be an actual moment from the film. The photo does seem to suggest the following possibilities and setups though:
– The Iron Man Hulkbuster vs. Hulk fight seen in the trailer also appears to involve Scarlett Witch (Elisabeth Olson), and Hulk restrained in some kind of device.
– An action sequence at a Hydra castle base in Europe where Hulk takes on a tank whilst Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) is charging at him. At the same time Captain America takes on Baron von Strucker (Thomas Kretschmann) who has Loki’s scepter. There appears to be a also a car chase in the mountains with Thor and Hawkeye on the trail of someone.
– The scene in the trailer with the Quintet over a highway also seems to involve vision, Iron Man, Captain America, Black Widow and Ultron.
– Finally, a scene with Iron Man taking on Ultron with the latter in some kind of aerial vehicle.
In other ‘Ultron’ news, actress Cobie Smulders has spoken with EW about her role as S.H.I.E.L.D. agent-turned-Stark employee Maria Hill and what her character gets up to in the upcoming sequel:
“There’s so many pieces to this giant puzzle, and I’m happy that Maria Hill is one of them. She’s working for Tony Stark, yes, but they shot so many locations all over the world and this team is out doing all sorts of things. So I like to think that Maria is at headquarters, trying to keep everything running as smoothly as possible. And working for Tony Stark is a whole other ballgame. She doesn’t have S.H.I.E.L.D. personnel to back her up at her disposal, so it’s an entirely different vibe for her.”
At the same time, Paul Bettany talked about voicing Jarvis and becoming the character of Vision in the upcoming sequel. Speaking at the Dubai Film Festival to THR, he says he’s glad fans will soon be able to get their first look at Vision shortly:
“It’s still a secret. I think all will be revealed very shortly. It’s a secret I’ve kept for about three years, which is really hard, especially with three kids. I’m contractually obliged not to talk about it. (I’m still concerned about) sunlight glinting off a sniper’s telescopic lens. J.A.R.V.I.S will be there and so will The Vision. But I simply can’t tell you any more.”
Additional filming on the movie is scheduled to take place in January.
