Avengers 2 Title Revealed: Age of Ultron
Here’s a major bombshell that dropped today at the San Diego Comic-Con: The title of the sequel to The Avengers! All I can add to this report, by Deadline.com’s Mike Fleming, Jr., is I can hear the cash registers ringing across the nation for the collected editions of a very recently published miniseries.
“In the final moments of Marvel’s rousing panel at Hall H, Marvel chief Kevin Feige brought out Joss Whedon, who showed a very early teaser of the sequel The Avengers and revealed that the film will be called ‘Age Of Ultron.’
Marvel Comics afficionadoes might know that the title is the subject of 10-issue limited series comic book crossover storyline published by Marvel Comics, that involves the return of Ultron and his conquest of the earth. Ultron and his Sentinels should prove a worth antagonist for The Avengers and it looked like all will be back, though there was no mention of Vin Diesel, who is rumored to be in line to play The Vision. The comic series was published between March and June 2013 and features a storyline by Brian Michael Bendis. Artist Bryan Hitch provided the art for issues one through five, and Brandon Peterson for issues six through eight. Other artists who contributed to the series include Carlos Pacheco and Joe Quesada, the latter of whom drew part of the final issue.”
