Re: Avengers 2 News, Rumors, Etc. Pictures until release...

If Ultron is an artificial intelligence and the MCU tries to be somewhat like real life, then what's to stop Ultron from backing himself up dozens of times and thus be unbeatable? Or am I missing something?

I thought Arnim Zola had already done that.

If so, it's certainly possible...

That's why he keeps coming back in the comics. The Avengers stamp him down, and then he retreats to a back up and has to spend time rebuilding everything so that he can try to take over the world again.

Hank Pym designed Ultron's head to resemble an ant; and defeating Ultron is like kicking an ant hill - he just builds it back over time.

I'm loving these posters. I hope we get another one with a better look at The Vision before SDCC is over.

Re: Avengers 2 News, Rumors, Etc. Pictures until release...

Marvel Studios panel at Comic-Con is going on now, and they just switched focus from Ant-Man to Avengers: AoU. Cast are now making their entrances. Downey starts it off, throwing roses to the audience.

Live blog for those who want to follow along.

ETA: Pretty much everyone from the main cast showed up except for Scarlett Johansson. All of the "classic" Avengers (minus Johansson), Jackson, Smulders, as well as Paul Bettany, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, and James Spader.

ETA 2: Pic of the group.

ETA 3:
When asked if there's anything he'd like to see Thor do, Hemsworth said, "Turn him into a woman!"


He jokes that he thinks it'll earn him his Oscar


ETA 4: Footage! I so wish I was there. It seems to be a scene of
, followed by a montage.

ETA 5: Josh Brolin (Thanos) just showed up, wearing the Infinity Gauntlet

Cobie Smulders was there. Is she confirmed for any Marvel work besides the occasional guest shot on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.?

^ Since she was there with the rest of the Avengers 2 cast, I would say that she is indeed in the movie.

ETA: Description of the footage shown, copy/pasted from the live blog:



I like that last Ultron line.
