Avengers Age of Ultron wall poster first look at The VisionDisney has released a new official plot synopsis for Marvel’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron which outlines the Rise of the villain and how that connects to Tony Stark.

Ultron, an artifical intelligent being played by James Spader, appears to be a Stark product, like J.A.R.V.I.S., set forth to battle evil but misinterprets all humans as evil and the extinction efforts begin.  Stark attempting to solve the problem will likely evolve J.A.R.V.I.S. into a new creature, the hero known as The Vision, played by Paul Bettany.

The end credits of Captain America: The Winter Soldier teased the appearance of Baron Von Stroker and the twins, Scarlett Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) which will now manifest in the Marvel Universe. Both characters, offspring of the X-Men villain Magneto, become regular Avengers in the comic book.

This all points to a major team change as the franchise heads into “Phase 3” with Ant-Man, Doctor Strange films coming soon. Check out the full statement below.

The Avengers: Age of Ultron arrives in theaters May 1, 2015.

When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance.
