In a recent interview with EW, Whedon talks about the self-aware robot, and what we can expect to see from him in the film. For those of you not really familiar with Ultron, some of his abilities include super-human strength, speed, stamina, durability, flight, mind control, a coma ray, and of course, genius intellect.
Here’s what Joss Whedon had to say,
“I knew right away what I wanted to do with him. He’s always trying to destroy the Avengers, goddamn it. He’s got a bee in his bonnet. He’s not a happy guy, which means he’s an interesting guy. He’s got pain. And the way that manifests is not going to be standard robot stuff. So we’ll take away some of those powers because, at some point, everybody becomes magic, and I already have someone who’s a witch.
As a character I love [Ultron], because he’s so pissed off.”
Release Date May 1st, 2015.
