Ultron's Mask Revealed in 'Avengers 2' Set Video

The unidentified actor playing the pre-CGI Ultron shows off the costume's mask for everyone to see on the Italy based set of this super hero sequel.

Avengers: Age of Ultron is continuing to shoot in Italy under the direction of Joss Whedon. A new 7-minute set video has arrived that gives us a look at Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) meeting on a bridge. They are later joined by Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), and towards the end we see them confronting a pre-CGI Ultron. At the 5:26 mark, the actor in the Ultron suit, who is clearly not James Spader, lifts his Ultron mask high up in the air and gives it a good turn so that everyone can see it. While Ultron will ultimately be CGI in the finished movie, this is our first good look at the silver helmet being used for this villain.

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.

    @undeadslayer4 I know, I am just saying that the people in those outfits, are probably other enemies besides Ultron. We'll just have wait and see who they are in the movie when it is released next year.

    @undeadslayer4 No, We would know who most of the Avengers cast would be in set images, because the Hulk is the only Avenger that I can imagine being the one with a cgi outfit. The rest of the people in cgi suits in set images for the Avengers: Age of Ultron is like the enemies of the Avengers.

    @undeadslayer4 I guess we'll find out which characters the people in the cgi outfits are supposed to be when the movie is released, because I have no idea who exactly they might be in the movie.

    @knightmare90 No, I guess it is not such a big deal, but he does still look ridiculous with those nostril holes no matter what. I mean, It's not like he breathes, right? He is a robot.

    @themoviefanatic And besides, he looks just like he does in the comics, that's ultimately what they were going for, right?

  12. Nick C.

    @themoviefanatic Lol i think it was the design from the earlier comics, not sure though. Maybe they were going for a more "human" appearance. It doesn't seem like such a big deal though, right? Hopefully it doesn't ruin the whole movie experiance for you(it's such a small detail)

    @knightmare90 Did he look as ridiculous in the comics with them, as it he does with them in the image above? Hopefully, They will edit them out in post-production!

    Damn ultron looks like a beast. And the avengers has gone international, no wonder war machine is in the film, they need every help to cover as Tony Starks hulkbuster is in south Africa fighting with the hulk. Gonna be epic.

    @Fred-Brooks I agree. But, Those nostril holes on his face are not necessary.

    This is absolutely it here, it's looks fantastic. They definitely nailed the look of 'Ultron' to a 'T' here. Anyone who's an 'Ultron' fan and is looking forward to seeing him on the screen shouldn't have a problem with this very comic book accurate look whatsoever. His droids look badass as well, just imagine how awesome this will look once they effects are added in and completed, look out because I think we are in for something on a level we've never seen before.

    God I freaking love Ultron.. I still have all the episodes from the earth's mightiest hero show saved on my DVR from a couple years ago when they went into the ultron direction!

    I appreciate the time and work that went into getting this footage, but the music was annoying. Anyway, seeing QS in a little action makes me think they got the right guy for the role. We'll see.
