Hello, Movie Buffs! 
     Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) is an amazing sequel to The Avengers (2012) and is an equally impressive eleventh addition into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) – part of MCU’s Phase Two1. Director and writer Joss Whedon (Avengers) delivered everything he said he would in a sequel, it has all the elements of the first film but everything has been given an upgrade – the script, the action, and the characters.
     The humor, angst, and drama in this film are remarkable for a superhero film; it makes the dialogue witty and impactful. The action is immediate, mind-blowing, and orchestrated beautifully. The action holds your attention from beginning to end and it also helps that the set designs have been amped up considerably; they’re immaculate. The characters have also upped their game since the last film.
     The cast all play their roles perfectly with a new level of development that we have yet to see from them. Robert Downey Jr starts to show us that there is more to Tony Stark than meets the eye. Chris Evan always brings honesty and heart to the film as Captain America but there has been an awakening to his character that we don’t see until Civil War. Scarlet Johansson (Black Widow) reveals a side to here we have yet to see and I can’t wait to see more. And her relationship with the Hulk has grown even more. Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Mark Ruffalo (Hulk), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Samuel L Jackson (Nick Fury), Cobie Smulders (Agent Hill), Don Cheadle (War Machine), and Anthony Mackie (Falcon) all reprised their roles wonderfully and add something new to their characters. The newcomers Andy Serkis (Ulysses), Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch), and Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Quicksilver) were all great additions to the cast and I can’t wait to see more from them. Two cast members stole the show with strong performances. First, James Spader is my favorite villain as of yet. His intimidating and suave voice brings Ultron to life with a sense of realism in an easily clich├ęd character. The second character to steal the show is Paul Bettany as Vision. I can’t wait to see him in Infinity War (2018).

     Overall, Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) is an entertaining sequel film that easily exceeded my expectations. The humor, angst, and drama are impressive; the action is mind-blowing, and the characters both new and old are developed nicely. The villain was most impressive, way better than Loki, who was more of a minor minion in the first Avengers film. Age of Ultron can be enjoyed by all ages and any fans of Marvel should most definitely see it. I can’t wait to see Infinity War (2018) tomorrow.
