In a matter of weeks Disney/Marvel is set to release another juggernaut on the world. Ultron. A movie that’s going to dominate the box office, internet chat, social media, and pretty much the world for most of the summer. That’s right, Avengers: Age of Ultron, which opens May 1, 2015 is about to make mountains-o-cash for Disney and its shareholders.
I wasn’t a huge fan of the first Avengers. It displayed a knack for action and destruction, but I found the plot line of Loki hiring aliens to do the dirty work of a god pretty weak. But, I’ve made it quite clear over the years that I’m not even a mild fan of the genre. That being said, I’ve enjoyed many superhero movies but it’s just not a genre I can really get into. I thought Man of Steel was great . . . and I think I’m alone on that island because most comic fans absolutely hated it. So that tells you how closely my comic tastes match with those who are really into the genre.
Not very closely.
Granted, this story line looks much more interesting to me than the Loki shenanigans, so maybe I’ll check it out.
