Did I ever tell you about that time many years ago when I saw Robert Downey Jr. light up my television screen and make me fall totally head over heels in love with him? I have followed his career for years now and haven’t missed a movie yet, especially not the Iron Man series. J-bird was about 11 years old when the first Iron Man was released and like a good mama I volunteered to take him to the movies. Shhh, don’t tell him why.
Iron Man and his buddies are back! When Tony Stark jump starts 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 they battle to save the planet from destruction at the hands of the villainous Ultron.
From Marvel Studios comes Avengers: Age of Ultron, an action packed adventure sure to make your heart race. With a U.S. theater release date of May 1, 2015 you’ve got plenty of time to plan a group field trip with friends or even your child’s next birthday party at the movies!
Age of Ultron features an all star cast: Robert Downey Jr., who returns as Iron Man, along with Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Mark Ruffalo as Hulk and Chris Evans as Captain America. Together with Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, and with the additional support of Don Cheadle as James Rhodes/War Machine, Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill, Stellan Skarsgård as Erik Selvig and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, the team must reassemble to defeat James Spader as Ultron, a terrifying technological villain hell-bent on human extinction. Along the way, they confront two mysterious and powerful newcomers, Pietro Maximoff, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and Wanda Maximoff, played by Elizabeth Olsen and meet an old friend in a new form when Paul Bettany becomes Vision.
