Alright so its been a few months since they let out the information that “Avengers 2” was going to actually be called “Avengers: Age Of Ultron” and pit our illustrious band of heroes against – dun – dun – dun…..Ultron! That in and of itself was pretty cool even though I think I really wanted to see them duke it out against Thanos. The world’s angriest robot sure is a good villain choice based on all his scuttles with The Avengers in the comics.
So why the post on something already brought to the public eye? Well, it was just yesterday that they informed the world that Paul Bettany has been hired on to be The Vision in the film and that is causing a lot of Marvel Comics fans to do a happy dance. They’ve already said that we would be getting The Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver in the movie and since I had this cool photo of The Vision (from a statue I saw at Forbidden Planet in NYC) I decided to raise a glass for it. Does this news excite you as a fan of that which be geek? Oh by the way, James Spader will be Ultron while Elizabeth Olson is Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch and Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Pietro Maximoff/Quicksilver.
New developments in the Marvel Cinematic Universe can be followed via their Official Wikipedia entry and I think this might be the best place to do it, barring on the day or so before a new movie comes out to avoid any spoilers.

Now just in case you are one of the choice few who is not up to speed on the doings in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, I have embedded codes in to Amazon.com – You might want to watch them in the order you see presented because some films lead into others a little more. For instance you really need to see “Thor” before “The Avengers” based on so much inter-story connectivity. By the time this film comes out you will have “Captain America:The Winter Soldier” and “Guardians Of The Galaxy” out as well so you do have some catching up to do.
