One of the most disappointing things about Avengers: Age of Ultron was how frankly... dumb the titular villain’s plan to destroy the Earth was. As it turns out, though, Marvel initially considered giving him a much more epic weapon to take on the Avengers.
I mean, sure, that forest conversation between Vision and Ultron’s last drone was pretty good. But, like most things, it could’ve been improved if it featured more giant sentient trees flinging things into the air so they could be blown the heck up.
Marvel vs Capcom Ultimate has a brand new trailer, finally revealing the reason why Marvel’s superheroes and Capcom’s stable of video game characters will do battle once again. This time, it involves Ultron, long-time Mega Man X foe Commander Sigma, a sinister deal, Infinity Stone nonsense, and it’s all just…
The fact that comic book characters don’t stay dead (unless their name is Uncle Ben) is a well-established fact. But the last time we saw Hank Pym in a Marvel comic... something strange happened to him. We had no idea how it was going to fit into the then-upcoming reboot, but Uncanny Avengers has finally offered a…
Before he loaned his voice to the genocidal robot Ultron in the latest Avengers movie, James Spader played the enigmatic CEO Robert California on The Office. And when you put Robert California’s words in Ultron’s metal mouth, the results are delightfully unhinged.
Just look at it. Look at that action figure and try not to hear a pithy remark from the voice of James Spader. This Ultron figure isn’t just amazing-looking, it’s here to snidely judge everything on your desk or toyshelf while doing so!
Last month we got a sneaky first look at Ashley Wood’s latest Marvel toy: A pretty fabulous looking Ultron. But now ThreeA have unveiled a bunch of pictures of the figure, and not only does it come in a variety of Ultronny metallic colours, it also looks pretty damn amazing.
Not every piece of Ultron merchandise out is all about celebrating the Avenger’s most iconic villain heading to the big screen in Age of Ultron. Sometimes, the maniacal robot just gets a badass action figure because hey, he deserves it. You do you, Ultron.
It’s a real testament to the talented sculptors and artists working at Hot Toys that a sixth-scale action figure that looks like it’s been a child’s only play toy for ten years is one of their most desirable creations. But the company’s new Avengers: Age of Ultron Ultron Mark I is easily one of the most detailed…
In a few weeks, Avengers: Age of Ultron will be upon us, introducing the MCU to one of Avengers' most iconic villains. Although this is Ultron's first appearance on film, the character has had a long (and strange) history in comics. Here's what you need to know about the insane robot.
The Age of Ultron merchandise train is well and truly rolling — but it's not just the movie versions of Earth's finest getting the spotlight. If anything, it means it's an easy opportunity to sell old comics toys, now that you can say 'look they're in the new movie!'.
This week graphic novel Rage of Ultron — not to be confused with the upcoming indie darling Age of Ultron — hit store shelves, revealing a big change for the villainous robot Ultron and its creator, Hank Pym. But there’s one problem: Does any of it actually matter? Spoilers ahead.
I mean, just look at him! He may want to wipe out all of humanity to achieve his twisted sense of peace, but I wouldn't say no to this little cutie, or any of his equally big-headed friends. Hot Toys have finally brought back their Cosbaby series, just in time for Age of Ultron.
One of the many, many reasons to love toys is that they often give us a sneak peek at upcoming movies or TV series we're dying to know more about. It's no surprise that Avengers: Age of Ultron will arrive in theaters alongside countless toys on store shelves, but ahead of its release Hot Toys is finally giving us a…
Age of Ultron's big bad can look awfully creepy when he's working those James Spader-y robo eyeballs of his - and it looks like Hot Toys have captured them pretty perfectly in their latest figure. I'm not sure I want this figure on my desk, his eyes boring into my soul in judgement. Quit being so judgy, Ultron!
Outstanding illustration of the new Ultron on the cover of Empire this week. I remember how fascinated I was the first time I saw Ultron in Avengers. It was issue #162, published in 1977—I saw it much later because it arrived to Spain in the 80s. Here's how artists changed Ultron's appearance through the years:
I wish Disney really made a Star Wars-Marvel Universe crossover. A cool one, not something dumb. Like the Guardians of the Galaxy finding the remains of an Imperial experimental military base abandoned 100,000 years ago, accidentally activate some portal, and traveling back in time for the war.
The first Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer showed more than our share of ass-kicking (and getting asses kicked). But this second look at next year's best movie settles a quieter score: Who can lift Thor's hammer?
Care to see the first full-body shot of the foe of the second Avengers movie? Of course you do. Ultron's torso and limbs are a bit overdesigned for my tastes, but it's not like he's a Bayformer or anything. Plus, he's got some great gams for a robot bent on destroying all of humanity.
Allegedly, this is the first look at the full Ultron, the evil robot that is set to wreak havoc in Avengers: Age of Ultron, the second installment of the series directed by Joss Whedon. It really looks like one menacing son of a gun.
