Marvel - Avengers Age Of Ultron : What You Need To Know

Moving Through The Marvel Timeline

Last week we had to opportunity to attend the advanced screening of the new MARVEL film
at the Scotiabank Theatre in Toronto thanks to our friends at Walt Disney Studios / Marvel Canada. Being that Diane is new to the Marvel movies, with Guardians of the Galaxy being the first Marvel movie she went to see, I needed to give her the background on all the previous movies that involved the characters known as The Avengers.

My hour long synopsis went from the first Iron Man movie to the most recent Captain America: The Winter Solider and include tidbits about Marvel's Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D. and Agent Carter.

It was a good thing I covered all the bases as a bit of everything was touched on in this film.

What You Will Love About Avengers: Age Of Ultron

This is a 3D film and from the moment it begins you feel like you are in the middle of an action packed video game. With explosions and stunt driving throughout the film you are sure to feel surrounded by the cinematic experience.

I was also having an 80s fan girl experience knowing that LESS THAN ZERO actors Robert Downey Jr. and James Spader were once again reunited to make this film.

This is one of the scenes I enjoyed most, which while it's not an action scene, it is very memorable. I love the quick quips and sarcastic banter that is part of these films.

What Is New About This Film

While the previous films were very story driven, the stories take a bit of a back seat to the action scenes.  There are great plot lines in the film, but they are more about the team working out there issues.

A Few Surprises In The Mix

No spoilers here, but there are a few things that will catch you off guard. 
  • You will be able to see how The Avengers and Guardians Of The Galaxy franchaises may come together in future Marvel Films.   
  • J.A.R.V.I.S. plays a bigger role with the team as apposed to just being a part of the IRON MAN movies
  • There is more that meets the "Hawkeye"
We think this movie will be great for the tween to teen audience when it comes a family night out at the movies!
