SDCC '13: Avengers 2 is officially titled as "Avengers: Age of Ultron"

Following the Marvel Studios panel at the San Diego Comic Con, The Avengers director Joss Whedon officially revealed and announced the title to his 2015 Avengers sequel, and it's called "Avengers: Age Of Ultron".

Naturally, the title comes from the recently concluded early 2013 Marvel Comics event "Age Of Ultron", and will probably clue in to introduce the robot menace and creation of Hank "Ant-Man" Pym as the primary antagonist instead of Thanos (who was teased at the end of The Avengers in 2012). Still, this could be a play for words and go differently, and characters like The Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver will also be officially introduced in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, so only time will tell how this goes. It's also unclear how 2014's Guardians of the Galaxy will connect and lead on to this film, so we can only imagine what Marvel's got in store, not to mention the "surprise role" Fast and Furious series & Riddick star Vin Diesel will have in the MCU. 

Age Of Ultron may have possibilities and will introduce another classic Avengers villain into the fold... But it's still a mystery on what exactly will occur at the end of Phase Two. Phase Three also begins after this film with "Ant-Man" directed by Edgar Wright, so this is definitely a setup film for that. Either way, looking forward to the return and expansion of Earth's Mightiest Heroes on film still, and it comes in the same year as the recently announced "Superman/ Batman" film, which will definitely make 2015 a BIG YEAR for popculture movies!

Avengers: Age Of Ultron sees release on May 2, 2015!
