Marvel’s greatest extras.
what if age of ultron is like introducing wanda and pietro and it’s like
"the maximoff twins are mu[cut to another scene]"
and then later there’s a fight and someone goes
"oh god she’s a m[LOUD EXPLOSIONS]"
and then in the aftermath someone’s like
"so you guys are [CAR HORN]ts huh?"
and it just keeps going through the whole movie
While HYDRA is a threat, it’s not the only one. We’ve seen a terrorist group, Ten Rings, since. There are big plans brewing for both, but what if they were heading for a collision course? HYDRA’s favorite slogan, besides “Hail HYDRA,” is “Cut off one head and two more shall take its place.” It never dies; the organization evolves. Not every branch was committed to Alexander Pierce’s goal of undermining SHIELD, so we can expect future movies to reveal more “heads.” Baron Zemo is a likely candidate since he’s the most significant Captain America villain after Red Skull. Viper could also be primed for her debut; she currently leads HYDRA in the comics. The question is whether Marvel would have access to her; Viper appeared in The Wolverine, and it remains to be seen if she’s confined to the X-Men franchise or, like Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, is able to be used outside of Fox. Iron Man 3 presented two different takes on Mandarin: Trevor Slattery played a character designed to strike fear while Aldrich Killian transformed his frail body with the power of Extremis. Neither shared much resemblance with comic-Mandarin, but both spoke to the idea that Mandarin is a character whose reality doesn’t always mesh with the image he conjures up. There may be a third operating in the shadows. This is the one Ten Rings members have been serving, and he may fall more in line with the version fans know: a tyrant who hates the West and wields ten rings of seemingly magical origin. The goals of Ten Rings and HYDRA aren’t so different. They’re devoted to tearing down traditional power structures and making life as difficult as possible for men like Tony Stark and Steve Rogers. And since Bucky Barnes’s killing career is over, maybe HYDRA will see Mandarin as someone who can get the job done. One of the big mysteries is the fate of Red Skull. He was beamed away by the Hypercube, but unless it left him floating in space, we doubt he’s actually dead. What if he’s Mandarin? It would make sense considering how fascinated he is with alien weaponry. Mandarin’s rings are an example of the old saying, “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” They’re artifacts containing a different intelligence and capable of bestowing unique powers. It stands to reason that the Tesseract transported Skull to some other part of the galaxy, and he claimed the rings, which he used to plan his revenge.

Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)
A couple of new set photos from Age of Ultron revealing Jeremy Renner will be returning as Hawkeye, Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch, and Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Quicksilver.
Age of Ultron stands to be the biggest comic movie thanks to an enormous budget and huge ensemble. As a result, there are a number of questions that needs to be answered before our heads explode. A recent piece of concept art reveals that Hulk may be goin’ up against the Hulkbuster, a suit specially designed to combat him, so perhaps he goes rogue or the enemy gains control of the tech. In comics, Ultron was the creation of Ant-Man, but he won’t be responsible this time, so we’re left wondering where he is. SHIELD is in disarray, yet Nick Fury and Black Widow are still operating. Hawkeye, however, was spotted on set wearing a uniform that doesn’t bear the organization’s logo. Thor is a demi-god and Captain America is a super-soldier, but how did Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch get their powers? “Mutant” is a term Marvel isn’t allowed to use, so “miracle” has been touted as the potential alternative. The Avengers are expanding rapidly; War Machine and maybe Doctor Strange will join, so Falcon surely won’t be left out? And Vision will have the same voice actor as JARVIS, suggesting that the android is property of Iron Man.
Now look at what Mark Ruffalo just tweeted to our Robert!
It’s coming. Soon.
