Ultron has some of Tonys mannerisms too. The shot of him raising his arms up as the drones attack....see Tony presenting the Jericho missile.

I'm not gonna spoil anything, but Ultron is a disappointing villain. I hoped he would be the first MCU villain to really grab me, but alas.

it seems like MCU is never willing to pay attention to the villains
Ultron is supposed to be a threat but end up being a running joke

(Havent really watched DD so I cant make opinion on that)

I've actually enjoyed most of the MCU villains so I have no doubt I will enjoy Ultron too.

Judging by the comments and reviews, it seems Ultrons characterization was off. That is dissapointing and will be hesistant from what i see of him. have marvel done a Iron Man 3 with the villians setup again. Please tell me this isn't the case guys. Ultron was what hooked me in the damn first place because of his serious approach and no nosense attidude towards humanity. If he has generic triats that i have seen from previous Marvel films then that will add to the dissapointment.

What will it take for Films in the Marvel universe to make a emotionally driven villian. The only character that has my balls on tenter hooks is kingpin from the Daredevil series. Such a layered,disturbed person. Great performance from Vincent D'Onofrio.

James Spader was sold on me since he was first cast. Just hope his talent hasn't been wasted on this to a degree.

How about you see the film yourself before saying Ultron seems off based on just some people's opinions and comments. A lot of other people are commenting saying he was great and they enjoyed him.

So yeah why automatically think the ones that didn't enjoy him are right? You need to decide for yourself not let what others think sway you to come to that conclusion.

They didn't pull in IM3. I mean where are people gearing this? Ultron needed more screentime and have his motives expanded upon. Other than that, he's a good villain.

You have to see this yourself to have proper opinion on him

The way he's portrayed is very silly,not much for a threat in fight either

No one is scared of him in the movie

To others he wasn't a disappointment so yeah haha. It's all a matter of opinion he will just have to see for himself and make his own decision.

He was certainly a great villain - there's so many other great elements in there too. I'd like to think big Ultron fans will be very pleased.

Honestly, that says a lot about the MCU's previous villains.

Its weird how some people are saying Ultrons "a joke" while others are really happy with him as the villain. Is he better than Vanko, Ronan or Malekith? Where does he rank in the MCU villain list?

I think at face value, Ultron could be seen as a cool villain. However, if you start to think about what he's trying to accomplish and how, it's nonsensical. I wouldn't call Ultron a joke, just badly written and ultimately a waste. His birth in the movie is phenomenal, and he never lives up to that scene again. He's not a particularly menacing presence in the context of the movie.

Yes, I would say he is better than the villains you listed.

His motivation is pretty much the same as in the comics. So if it's "lame," then it's ALWAYS been lame.

If this is the exact same character as in the comics, then yes the character is not that impressive. I haven't read them, so I don't know.

Hes very different to the other villains. He's childish and unstable, and I guess some don't like that. But he's definitely menacing. I'd rank him somewhere with Loki.

The problem is that he was making too many quips and the movie decided to go with "he will destroy the world" plot, while Ultron could have for example just wanted to turn everyone into a robot.

The problem isn't so much on Ultron but the movie tries to be as "serious" as Winter Soldier but as funny as "Guardians of the Galaxy", like GOTG really did ruin Ronan into a random alien terrorist with no richness of the comic book character, but the movien was a flat out comedy and Ronan being so comedic worked there.

I liked the Avengers: EMH Ultron a lot more, because the way spoke was menacing, here Ultron is making jokes and being all "guys! don't leave me!"

He is suppose to be snarky and making quips and jokes though like Stark isn't he? Wasn't that the point?

ULTRON has been described as "child like, unstable, disturbed, psychotic, quippy" and that was the plan since I first read about Joss directing this movie. I think people want "evil villain" and if they are eccentric or not portraying pure evil in every scene they consider it a negative. ULTRON has traits of Tony Stark, so of course hes going to be humorous as well as deadly. But personality wise, I think hes all kinds of things at once.

ULTRON is an AI that becomes self aware and decides he needs to wipe out humanity to achieve true peace. Thats not good for humans BUT that doesnt mean hes suddenly just an "evil villain". To ULTRON, he is the hero of the story. Do you know what Im saying?

If that was the intention then they pulled it off perfectly.
