Avengers: Age of Ultron, the most highly anticipated movie of the year so far (at least until that next most highly anticipated movie of the year is released in December), will be in theaters on May 1. Robert Downey, Jr. (The Pick-up Artist) is back as Tony Stark, who, in an effort to protect Earth, builds Ultron, a robot who decides that he wants to destroy Earth instead. Is this Avengers sequel even better than the first movie? Is there any chance you won’t see Avengers: Age of Ultron? As always, we answer every question that you could possibly have about Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Q: When the movie starts, what are the Avengers up to?
A: Like the first Avengers film, it starts with a huge action set piece. As opposed to the first film, the Avengers are in full team mode this time.
Q: What is their mission?
A: The Avengers — Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Hulk — are after the Chitauri Scepter.
Q: Wait, still?
A: Since the events of the first film, the Scepter has fallen into the hands of Baron Wolfgang von Strucker.
Q: The guy from Rock of Ages?
A: No, you’re thinking of Wolfgang von Colt.
Q: How do I know Baron Wolfgang von Strucker?
A: We met him during the mid-credits scene of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. He’s also in possession of two “miracle” twins — Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen) and Pietro Maximoff (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) — who have the power of telekinesis and the power of a horrible Eastern European accent, respectively.
