I just feel like there’s way too much room for Age of Ultron to be a reskin of Avengers. As of now, I have yet to see anything majorly different and I feel like I can accurately predict the entire movie just by going over the basic plot points of the first one.
There’s also the huge balancing issue. I found the balancing of Avengers to just be terrible. Now they’re introducing at least 4 new characters that have to be explained and given motivations to make them enjoyable while competing for screen time with the much bigger characters. With their main focus on Iron Man in the trailer, it doesn’t look good.
I don’t like Ultron so far. Besides how they changed his back story and my general “meh” about him, I don’t care for his design. He looks a lot like the Michael Bay Transformers with his beady “human” eyes and the way he moves his mouth. I don’t think his voice is deep enough either, but I’ll get used to that.
Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch. Not enough of them. Don’t like how Quicksilver has that weird misty trail either. Find his actor to be pretty lack luster as well.
Seems like they’re doing the same thing with the Hulk again that was in the first movie: think he’s ok and has it under control, wait no he doesn’t!, one the Avengers fights him, has a weird moment with Black Widow, probably will be back and fine for the final fight
Don’t like Joss Whedon.
Captain America wears his helmet in like one scene in the movie. This something that continuously bothers me about MCU Cap. He takes off his helmet all the time. Every chance he gets. And I’m not too big on his costume. Too many red highlights to me.
All of that being said, I still want to go see it and it actually looks better than the first one despite all of its flaws. Probably won’t be in my top 10 though. Just have to wait and see.
