Avengers: Age of Ultron

Ever since Marvel’s first hit, The Avengers, people everywhere have been waiting for the sequel. With Marvel’s latest release being The Guardians of the Galaxy, the anticipation for the next Avengers movie went up drastically.

And, as usual, Marvel delivered.

When Tony Stark tries to jump start a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to the Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for a global adventure.  The Avengers meet a few new members along the way who help them on their mission. These new faces include Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver, and The Vision.

Directed by Joss Whedon, The Avengers is an action/adventure film with lots of comedy and plot twists that take you all around the world. It’s full of jokes, romance, and, of course, Avenging.

But of course that’s what’s expected when the cast consists of Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Black Widow (Scarlet Johanssen), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), and Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson).

This movie appeals to many audiences, but especially those who love a good super hero movie.
