COMIC-CON 2013: 'The Avengers 2' Officially Titled 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron'!

Writer-director Joss Whedon teased the title in the final moments of Marvel Studios' Hall H panel earlier today.

The Marvel Studios panel just let out minutes ago, where the studio showcased its upcoming Marvel Phase Two sequels Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier. However, at the end of the panel, Marvel's The Avengers director Joss Whedon hit the stage, revealing that The Avengers 2 title is The Avengers: Age of Ultron!

In the Marvel comic books, Ultron is considered to be one of the greatest creations of scientist Henry Pym, a.k.a Ant-Man. The sentient robot is dedicated to eradicating the human race once and for all. The robot's violent tendencies are said to spring from both Pym's intellect and mental instability.

Of course, The Avengers: Age of Ultron, the last movie in Marvel's Phase Two, will lead perfectly into the first Phase Three movie, Ant-Man, directed by Edgar Wright and slated for release on November 6, 2015, just six months after The Avengers 2: Age of Ultron hits theaters on May 1, 2015.

Joss Whedon is directing from his own screenplay, which has already been confirmed to include superhero siblings Quicksilver, a role which Aaron Taylor-Johnson is believed to have landed, and Scarlet Witch. Thanos, who appeared at the very end of Marvel's The Avengers, was thought to be the villain in this sequel, but that doesn't seem to be the case now.

The Avengers: Age of Ultron

We'll keep you posted with any further news regarding The Avengers 2: Age of Ultron as soon as more information is released.

Avengers: Age of Ultron comes to theaters May 1st, 2015 and stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Scarlett Johansson, Robert Downey Jr., Elizabeth Olsen, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Cobie Smulders, Jeremy Renner. The film is directed by Joss Whedon.

    @comicbookfan Do you think he will get what he wanted to happen with his character Hawkeye, meaning for him to be in more of the movie in The Avengers: Age of Ultron ? I'd like to see his 'Hawkeye' outfit to be more like the one in the comics, rather then one we saw him wear in the Avengers movie from last year.

    @themoviefanatic Because. You don't remember? He made comments about being unhappy that "for 90% of the movie" he played a character which wasn't the role he signed on to play. He's talking, of course, about evil Clint Barton under Loki's control, to where when he finally showed up as the Avenger Hawkeye, it was pretty much the end of the movie. Why complain when it's an obvious franchise with million-dollar sequels? It's anyone's guess, but most likely because new characters will be introduced and Hawkeye will be pushed to the side. He basically feels he didn't get a fair chance to play Hawkeye. Marvel doesn't let you complain and not fire you.

    God and I thought we could avoid the damn time travel bullsh*t crapfest that was AoU.
    I dig me some Ultron but the AoU crossover was even lower than normal crossover crappy writing.
    (Yeah it had action...)

    Please let it be AoU in NAME ONLY.

    @therealGoku lmao I knew I was missing someone. :-P Maybe it's because there's no Hulk 2 coming out for awhile.Which completely sucks might I add.After all that badassery he displayed in the Avengers he definitely needs own film.

    Now I'm really curious to see where Thanos will fit in. Is it possible they're saving him for Avengers 3, and will just do small teases along the way in the Phase 2 films?
