After the first Avengers hit back in 2012, the superhero movie genre was never going to be the same, with numerous superhero blockbusters appearing year by year and Marvel, as well as DC, have announced new movies up to 2019 and upward. Considering the great legacy and expectations that you might have after seeing the first movie, this would be enough to make you go to see Avengers: Age of Ultron. However, if you are on the fence, we are going to talk about 5 great reasons why Avengers: Age of Ultron is one superhero flick that you do not want to miss.
1. We find out more about each character
One of the main issues of the first Avengers is definitely the fact that each character was introduced quite fast, with only Thor, Captain America and Iron Man having their story said previously. This lead to characters such as Black Widow and Hawkeye to have a very abrupt start and introduction to the Avengers team, pretty much as the Hulk.
In Avengers: Age of Ultron, thankfully, all of these come to an end. Not only we are able to explore some of the sequences that took place during the past, specifically for Steve Rogers, but we also manage to find out a little bit about Thor as well. Even Iron Man will have some very influencing thoughts and ideas that will literally turn the movie around, but which also manage to plant the seeds for future Avengers installments, specifically Infinity War.
But for many fans of the first movie, the great revelation will be in finding out more about Black Widow. This character was, up until this point, a major mystery, yet in Avengers: Age of Ultron we will finally be able to learn more about who she is, what she does and other interesting stuff. Hawkeye is also a major character now, with a large plot line dedicated to him entirely. So, if you wanted to see more screen time for these characters then this is the perfect way to do it, all you have to do is to check out the movie for this. As a side bonus, there are some amazing cameos here that you will enjoy.
2. It questions the morality of our decisions
In Avengers: Age of Ultron we will have the opportunity to see how decisions play out, and we will understand if we can cope with them efficiently or not. This is a movie that shows that decisions have consequences, and maybe then most important thing, it allows us what technology can do, both in its good and evil form. The Avengers will have a lot of moral decisions to make during this movie, some of which will directly impact the team and the way it will be in the future.
Morality and the way people see it is a great topic on its own, but seeing how the Avengers question morality and each other in Avengers: Age of Ultron is definitely a sight to be seen, that’s a given.
3. There are many new characters to see and explore
As you might have seen from the trailer, you have Ultron, which is the main baddie, but also some new superheroes which have powers very different from the Avengers. The Maximoff brothers, specifically Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver are brought in quite nicely into the story and have an amazing set of interactions that you are bound to enjoy. Then, we have Vision, whose appearance is integrated seamlessly into the story and which you will definitely enjoy checking out.
A few other superheroes will make their presence felt, so you will see quite a lot of action and many of your favorites. The cast is immense here, so you will definitely see many characters from the other Marvel movies!
4. The Avengers are a global entity now
And this come with some issues. In the first movie, people were complaining that the action took place in a single city, and that was a problem for sure, because it lacked that global appeal that people wanted to see when it comes to the Avengers. With Avengers: Age of Ultron, we are now able to see our favorite team of superheroes go to South Africa, China, London, Italy and many, many other places. This sets up the pieces for some massive events which you will have the pleasure of seeing unfold right in front of your eyes, which is really cool.
The fact that they are a global entity definitely brings in many consequences for the Avengers, and they will be able to see the way these will play out as time passes. It’s nice and quite interesting to see how these superheroes interact with these new locations, and the astounding plans that Ultron has for the whole mankind.
5. It has a great story and connects with the Marvel movie universe as a whole
If you want to watch Avengers: Age of Ultron, then you most probably watched a few, if not all of the Marvel movies. The best part about this movie is that not only it connects to them in a seamless fashion, but it also brings numerous easter eggs that refer to them in one way or another. If you watched those movies, then you will feel that was time well spent, because this experience is one of a kind and very interesting.
One final, bonus reason to see this movie is because of the special effects. It features some of the best special effects in the world, so not only the game looks great, but the superhero themed madness is recreated in such a way that it can easily be considered a visual feast for the viewers. If you want a good, fun movie to check out and you have around 140 minutes to spare, Avengers: Age of Ultron is one of the best ones to see this summer. Explosive action, great character development and a large team of superheroes blend together in order to provide you with the stellar movie experience you want to have!
