Avengers: Age of Ultron is shaping up to be the biggest movie of the year. Just in sheer size of cast, action and the story it is set to tell. Buried within its many riches is what will become one of Marvel Studios most iconic scenes. It has already been teased quite a bit these past few months, with every trailer released focused on this fight. Its the epic Hulk Vs. Hulkbuster brawl, and it's sure to leave fans with their jaws agape weeks after the movie comes out. While we still have 7 weeks left before we'll get to see it play out on the big screen, we now have a detailed description of this scene.
As you may know, this past Thursday Disney CEO Bob Iger held a shareholders meeting, where he announced Rogue One as the first ever Star Wars spinoff, the release date for Star Wars: Episode VIII, and the fact that Frozen 2 is officially in development. He also shared the anticipated Hulk Vs. Hulkbuster scene with those in attendance. StitchKingdom, one of the best Disney sites around, was on hand. And they offered this detailed account of the scene (do you really need to be told there are SPOILERS ahead?):
Let us start with the new clip from Marvel's Age of Ultron (May 1, 2015). The clip so nice, Robert Iger made the quiet joke twice. The scene opens with an armored police vehicle arriving on the scene. An incredibly angry and destructive Hulk is witnessed tearing up the streets, destroying cars and spreading all-out panic. Police, heavily armed with machine guns, openly fire on the Hulk to no avail. In the distance comes Iron Man, flying at super speed to the scene. 'Hold your fire,' he commands to the responding teams below. He is flanked by large metal objects that speed along through the air with him, keeping up every step of the way. We cut back to the menacing Hulk and all of a sudden, a large steel (?) surfboard-shaped object slams itself down in the pavement in front of him. Then another. And another. Before you know it, Hulk is trapped inside a giant, solid metallic 'box.' At least, that is, until Hulk smashes free and then continues his rampage. And then, it assembles - piece by piece - the Hulkbuster, almost in Mark 42 fashion. 'The witch is messing with your brain,' Stark tells Hulk. 'You're smarter than her, you're Bruce Banner.' This yields an even angrier response from Hulk and it's on. Hulkbuster vs. Hulk. The Hulkbuster usually seems to have the upper-hand, as they drag each other through the streets, tearing up the pavement. At least until Hulk ends up on the Hulkbuster's back, impaling the shoulder with a traffic light pole. 'Dick move, Banner' responds Stark as they continue to fight. Then the damaged pieces of the Hulkbuster fall off and are quickly replaced with new parts. Different parts. And now Hulkbuster is atop Hulk, Stark treating Hulk's head as a punching bag, literally pounding Hulk's head into the pavement over and over and over (much to the amusement of the audience). 'Sleep, go to sleep' chants Stark, but spoiler alert: it doesn't work. Then, one of the replaced parts of the Hulkbuster, the arm missing a hand, wraps itself around Hulk's arm and sucks him in and Iron Man takes flight, toting Hulk by the arm.
What do you think? Sounds pretty exciting, right? Avengers: Age of Ultron is in theaters this May. In the film, the team must reassemble to defeat James Spader as Ultron, a terrifying technological villain hell bent on human extinction. Along the way, they confront two mysterious and powerful newcomers, Wanda Maximoff and Pietro Maximoff, and meet an old friend in a new form when Vision arrives to help the fight.
