Casting Call Reveals All?

By Robert T. Trate     August 01, 2013
Source: IO9 (via Feature Film Casting)

It really seems as if no rock will be left unturned by the geek media. IO9 has posted the Avengers 2 Casting Call Sheet. It is fairly brief (no serious spoilers) and contain a little more info on the film. Check it out below: 

Marvel Studios and The Walt Disney Studios are now in pre-production on the upcoming sci-fi themed superhero feature film "The Avengers: Age of Ultron", and casting directors are auditioning actors for starring, co-starring, and supporting roles. The film's photo doubles and stand-ins for the starring actors, as well as general extras and featured background actors will be cast closer to the start of filming. The locations where outdoor principal photography will take place are in and around London, England. Indoor sound stage filming will take place at Shepperton Studios. Shooting begins in February, 2014.

In "The Avengers: Age of Ultron" Loki is gone and the new villain will be the evil robot Ultron, who has the ability to keep upgrading his own strength, making him extremely fearsome. Tony Stark/Iron Man becomes the unwitting creator of Ultron. The brother-and-sister team of Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch become the seventh and eighth members of The Avengers. Quicksilver has extreme speed, while Scarlet Witch can cast spells and has telekinesis ability. Black Widow and Hawkeye will be key figures in the film.

IO9 did have this disclaimer: “To be totally clear, it’s a little unclear from the site what is actually gleaned from a putative casting sheet and what is just simple speculation; most of what’s in the synopsis could be fairly readily extrapolated from comments Joss Whedon has made in recent interviews”.

Take from it what you will Maniacs.

When will Disney make Han Solo a member of the Avengers?

Tony Stark created Ultron? Oh boy.

Muenster 8/1/2013 11:22:43 PM

"Unwittingly" could mean that Stark does not actually mean he creates Ultron, but rather sets in motion events that enhances or restores a technology thereby freeing Ultron.

? ? ?

 at least that's what i thought that T.S created Ultron as some kind of protector and Ultrons Artificial i. Expanded with no longer the need of T.S help and whent retarded..

Will be interesting to see if they at least mention Hank Pym as being an originator of some mcguffin that allows something of Stark's to gain sentience or something like that. Could lay foundations for Pym being something of a mysterious background character, to be revealed in Ant Man.

 This is what's going to happen. To replace himself as Iron Man Tony is going to make an Iron Robot and implant JARVIS into it. Then JARVIS is going to go mad SKYNET style and decide the best way to cure the world of evil is to destroy mankind. BOOM! You heard it hear first.

They really should have kept it being Pym's mistake to bring Giant man or Ant Man into the mix.  Also to help with his solo movie.  Big mistake there.  Pym would make a great actor out of somebody.  So much emotion in owning up to creating ultron, being a wife beater, and the mental problems he had turning multiple personalities with Yellow jacket.  I guess they will white wash the character.  I guess I am glad they never went with the drunk Stark storyline.  Well they glossed over it in IM2 anyway.

I don't know why you people are so convinced you'll actually be seeing an evil robot called Ultron in Avengers 2. How do you know you aren't being purposely lied to in order to create another Mandarin-esque screwjob in the name of comic relief? I'm anticipating an hour of  quality scenes building up the threat of Ultron when ultimately it's then revealed that a rapper named U.L. Tron has faked the threat of Ultron as a viral marketing strategy for his debut rap album. Also, Quicksilver might just be a guy who masturbates really fast, because outside of hardcore fans no one knows or cares who he really is and kids find masturbation humor funny.

"Unwitting creator" sounds like it's more of an accident that creates Ultron. I think that Tony uses Jarvis to help him reverse engineer chituri tech but it becomes infected with an alien computer virus triggering it's evolution into Ultron.
