After a full month in theaters, Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron is still going strong, taking in over $1.3 billion worldwide, including $430 million domestically. While the sequel wasn't received quite as well as its predecessor, 2012's Marvel's The Avengers, it's still an undeniable hit, one which helps set the table for Marvel Phase Three. Before Ant-Man closes out Phase Two next month, we thought it would be a good time to dissect everything revealed at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron, and how it will affect the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
1 New Avengers Assemble
At the very end of Avengers: Age of Ultron, we get our first look at the brand new Avengers lineup. Captain America (Chris Evans) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) are the leaders, with Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), Vision (Paul Bettany), The Falcon (Anthony Mackie) and War Machine (Don Cheadle) joining the team. While this is certainly a much different team than the original Avengers, each member falls into place quite perfectly. Vision's supernatural powers make a fine substitute for Thor and his Asgardian gifts, while The Falcon is a more high-tech version of Hawkeye, War Machine slides right into Iron Man's place and, ironically, the smallest member of the team, physically, Scarlett Witch, steps in for The Hulk, since her abilities easily make her the most powerful, albeit in much different ways. We still have a long way to go before we see them all team up in Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 (May 4, 2018) and Avengers: Infinity War Part 2 (May 3, 2019), but where did the rest of our favorite heroes go?
