    I don't hate comics. Come on, man. I'm a regular on a comic book movie forum.

    No.

    I don't think so, but like I said, I'm aware that you guys prefer it.

    That teaser wasn't in HD, and honestly, its very underwhelming compared to what I had imagined in my head.

    You have to adjust your expectations knowing the use of hyperbole on these types of sights. Example, two posts above yours.

    That was cool and all, but Summer 2015 is too far away for me to get excited now.

    We've got too many movies coming out before then that I'm psyched on first lol

    I must say, compared to all the variations of Ultron's face we've gotten over the years, here, he really, really looks like, exactly like this

    I mean, the eyes especially, same angle of triangle, even has the segmented part above his eyes. Could this statue have influenced his look?

    Call me crazy, but if I were doing Age of Ultron, I would make Ultron a threat that the main team, not including Pietro and Wanda, can't handle alone. And I would, in turn, introduce a team of "New Avengers" consisting of Pietro, Wanda, Winter Soldier, Falcon, and War Machine (As well as, in a perfect world, Spidey :oldrazz:).

    No one other than Pietro and Wanda would appear outside of the third act, and they would really serve as a reminder that the team of Avengers from the first film aren't the only heroes out there who could, and would, help in a global crisis such as one Ultron will cause, and it would serve as a precedent for an even wider spread gathering of heroes than that in Avengers 1 that will be needed in the future (the kind that will be needed to stop Thanos).

    ^ Maybe.

    This is a bit unrelated to Ultron, and more related to SHIELD and the MCU. But I just had a little moment. I think Fury/SHIELD knows A LOT more about aliens, and races, and stuff than we do/think they know. Think about it for a second.

    Who do we suppose to be older, Thanos and The Other? Or SHIELD, or Schmidt? Shield is no more than 65 years old.

    My point, is that The Other, and presumably Thanos, refereed to the cube as the tesseract. These two ancient beings. SO why is it people of Earth are able to call it the same thing, the tesseract, instead of coming up with some earthly name for it (which is what would probably happen)

    My guess is that Shield may have had some info on some things going on in space. Because how would the people of earth know this ancient artifacts name? "His secrets have secrets". Maybe I am thinking too much into it, and it could simply be a name, but I don't know.

    I think the movie is getting crowded by just introducing Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver so I wouldn't want any other heroes involved. They won't be used well and just take away time for the Avengers to shine, and people wanted more from some of them already in the first movie.

    I think the Avengers series will be almost an ongoing thing a la James Bond, where every movie sees the roster rotated. There won't be any numbered subtitles.

    Completely not the point. The point I am making, is that The Other, a being who is probably at least 1,000 years old, referred to it as "The Tesseract". I don't think he called it that just because the humans call it that. According to The Other, and Thanos, the cube is called the tesseract, and due to their age, it has been called that for a long time.
    So, again, how people of earth learn the "correct" name of it?

    No, that's not the point I'm making lol. It's not a complaint. I'm saying that human beings, specifically people of shield, are calling it the same name. So does that mean that SHIELD may have more info on alien races than what we think so far? And could it ultimately lead to SWORD?

    i just think you're reading too far into it. The Tesseract was titled as such in the MCU lore of Asgardian mythology... thus how Red Skull knew about it... thus how the rest of earth knew about it

    ^ That's generally what I figured what happened, if SHIELD doesn't have all that info.

    Back to Age of Ultron, when do we think we'll hear from Spader? I am really anticipating an interview.

    At the beginning of CATFA, Schmidt told the elderly man hiding the Tesseract that it was the jewel of Odin's treasure room. The Asgardians had visited Earth -- in fact, Tonsberg, Norway where the Cube was found -- and obviously told people there somethings about the artifact that were passed down along with it. The cube's name (tesseract) was known because humans had been told it.


    Additionally, the word tesseract is a geometrical term for a 4-dimensional hypercube. Which is (sort of) what the Tesseract in the MCU is, except that it's also a receptacle for energy from outside this universe.
