“You want to protect the world, but you don’t want it to change. You’re all puppets.. Tangled in string. There are no strings on me.” ~ Ultron
The most underrated Marvel movie, to-date. Ultron is both terrifying and fascinating because the concept of Artificial Intelligence is so precarious and tragically imminent. Humanity is going to eventually destroy itself, one way or another, by design or by “accident.” Hypothetically speaking: program the being with the objective of “peace in our time" and what would/could it actually do? It’s anybody’s guess. For starters, Eliminate humanity from the equation, obviously. And people are working on this kind of stuff, in real life, as we speak. We are all inherently flawed in various different ways. Everything must have a beginning, and an ending. “Nothing lasts forever.”

Look Age of Ultron was a mess right? But it had the best lines it was so funny
how we doin tonight tony stans??????
i’m up to age of ultron in my mcu rewatch and…
do i have to watch it? i mean, really?
So I’ve just watched Avengers:Age of Ultron and I don’t really know why many people are hating on it and why it’s so underestimated. I know there aren’t as many fight scenes as in the other MCU-movies but that’s the point. Like have you ever thought of the fact that it’s the first time of the whole sequence when we truly get a look behind the characters not fully introduced before.
Like look at Clint, it’s the first time you realize how it feels to be Clint Barton, how much of himself he must give into being an Avenger, and how many things he risks and leaves behind for the group. Besides, he’s the perfect dad, like ever (I truly wish Tony had had a father like Clint Barton when he was young.)
And let’s just take Natasha after she was under Wanda’s “mind games”. She is utterly soft and vulnerable; and you suddenly realize what she’s been through, you just suddenly start seeing what her tough badass look really hides, and how much she needs safety that she finds with Bruce.
And now that we’ve come to Bruce, he is constantly fighting with himself during the whole movie, he has to deal with the consequences of his and Tony’s experimenting, even if they were just constantly trying to do their bests and make the work for the Avengers easier. And still, they’re the ones who suffer from not only the others’ remarks but their inner thoughts too.
And I don’t know whether you caught the piece where Thor wants to understand what’s behind his dream and he doesn’t go for Jane even though he has the chance when talking with the professor, he’s not even asking about her, he’s only interested in the issue of the Avengers, such as saving Midgard, so to say, he puts it before his fucking personal interests.
And I haven’t said anything about Steve and neither much about Tony because they’ve got their own movies about their inner battles but the slowly establishing friendship between the two is just breathtakingly beautiful, even if they’re both in the middle of fighting their own demons. They just always stand side by side eventually, Tony even starts thinking the same way Steve does, and these two just hold the whole team together.
This movie is not about shooting and fighting battles with guns and power, but emphasising who are those people fighting them, how much this whole Avengers thing means to them, and how strong they are, not only together but one by one or in duos, and I think A2-AoU ist just different by focusing on the characters’ mind and soul and personality more than ever before. So please stop underrating it this much.
So Age of Ultron starts out in the middle of fight kinda and when I first saw it I was like ‘oh this is kinda weird’ but now I love it. It shows off what the team was like, like what they did when they weren’t busy saving the world. Like imagine Nick Fury coming into the tower and being like 'hey I have a mission for you’ and all their different reactions. Natasha would be the first to respond, she’d jump up and get ready extremely day then sit back down and call Clint. He disappears a lot a couple days at a time, but he always meets them at the airport. Steve would sigh and go get ready 'like a man’ he would say that to Tony everytime because Tony would just press a button and he’d be suited up and just smirk at Steve while he glared back. Steve actually had to manually put on is uniform. Bruce wouldn’t get up Nick would glare and would just groan and say 'i don’t want to get up’ like a teenager, but then Natasha would be like 'get up Mark’ and he would immediately change into his stretchy pants. And that leaves Thor. Thor wouldn’t move, he’d keep watching whatever he’s watching and then on the way there he’d do the lightning bolt thing to get ready. He’s not allowed to do it in the tower anymore. Anyways that’s my version of what happened immediately before Age of Ultron.
