The amount of news from San Diego Comic-Con just keeps getting better and better.
Marvel is capping off Saturday night here at Comic-Con 2013, and Joss Whedon just took the stage and revealed that the name of the sequel to The Avengers will be Avengers: Age of Ultron. The reveal came at the end of a brief teaser, with the camera rotating around an image of Tony Stark's Iron Man helmet, while the voice of Robert Downey, Jr. and other actors played out.
I try not to read too much stuff online and not be spoiled when I watch the movie but Holy Sheet is this Awesome news. Great story line and hopefully this means we get to se one of the greatest all time Avengers, The Vision.
Would have thought based on the post credits scene that this movie would have Thanos as the main villain but supposedly that will be in Avengers 3 which will be cool. I so can not wait for Guardians of the Galaxy & Rocket Raccoon. Too bad Marvel already with the Fantastic Four relinquished rights to Galactus & Silver Surfer who were integral to this story line. But cant wait to at least see the Guardians & Adam Warlock. Cant wait to see this unfold.
I like how some of the articles being written keep referencing the recent 10-comic mini-series of the same name, but it's not going to be that at all unless they're randomly throwing in Wolverine and Invisible Woman into the mix as they are pretty much key to that entire plot.
Will we see spiderman and wolverine in the story? Would be awesome
I highly doubt it given the complicated rights juggling that it requires. On one hand, Sony has shown to be a bit more interested in creating a shared universe with Marvel (they were originally going to put Oscorp in NY, suggesting that TASM takes place in Avengers, but it was too late into postproduction for it to happen). On the other hand, Fox will never deal given the bad blood between the two.
If only Marvel didn't sell off their rights, they would've been in Warner Bros' position and reaped the rewards big-time.

I can see them killing off Stark because they're pretty much out of ideas and story lines with him.
They did the Thanos thing right. Rather than rush him like Star Trek did with Khan, build him up for the ultimate final showdown. Everyone knows he's coming, but hold onto that card for later.
Green Lantern didn't work partly because Ryan Reynolds is awful but also because they used the most generic boring Green Lantern. Hal Jordan. Jon Stewart or even Guy Gardner are much more interesting characters.
The best version of Wonder Woman is in the animated movie DC made a few years ago. They got it.
Flash movie is long overdue. That could be done really well if the right people do it.
Both Whedon and Fiege already confirmed that its not based on the Age of Ultron miniseries. Which is actually a good thing because, well, its not very good.
Not necessarily, I don't buy it for one moment that the miniseries is not on their minds when it comes to creating the story (even the old 90s card that CoRD showed is very similar to AoU storyline). The way they worded their comments suggested that it's not a literal adaptation of Age of Ultron miniseries, that they're gonna take snippets while making their own character origins and their own original story. It's like Nolan saying TDK is based on The Killing Joke, but we both know that it's not the exact adaptation, because the film doesn't follow the comic's internal logic.
