Curious as to how Marvel Studios created Avengers: Age of Ultron? Well, wonder no more!
Following up on this morning’s deluge of concept art, the folks over at CBM have rolled out yet another media dump for Joss Whedon’s somewhat divisive superhero sequel – but this time, there’s a twist. Rather than uncovering the alternate designs for Ultron (AKA James Spader’s string-less puppet) or bringing us closer to Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, the gallery below is brimming with the many keyframes of Avengers: Age of Ultron.
The result? A beautiful, play-by-play breakdown of Marvel’s 2015 blockbuster – not to mention another exciting prelude to Infinity War – and it all begins with a sun-kissed shot of Vision levitating above his fellow Avengers. Surrounded by Ultron’s mechanized minions, this particular keyframe is lifted from the sequel’s final act in Sokovia, where Marvel’s costumed crusaders are forced to do battle on a landmass that’s slowly being pulled into the sky.
Pay close attention and you’ll be able to identify one or two scenes that were ultimately left on the editing room floor, too, such as Iron Man’s mid-flight battle with Ultron, not to mention the latter’s impersonation of a certain Doctor Doom.
Elsewhere, this Age of Ultron gallery also features a brainwashed Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and Black Widow being deployed from a low-flying Quinjet. It’s a pretty cool shot, too, as ScarJo’s whip-smart S.H.I.E.L.D. agent is already riding a motorbike in her pursuit of Captain America.
Joss Whedon’s Age of Ultron initially took flight almost three years ago, which can only mean one thing: a new Avengers movie is long overdue. Thankfully, it’s about to arrive in the shape of Avengers: Infinity War, Marvel’s superhero extravaganza that’s coming by way of Joe and Anthony Russo, the creative minds behind Civil War and The Winter Soldier.
