Trivia about Avengers: Age of Ultron.

  • Reports surfaced in May regarding several cast members in dispute with Marvel concerning their salaries if they were to return for a sequel. Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth in particular were reportedly having trouble negotiating their returns to solo-franchises as well. It was also mentioned that the cast rallied behind Robert Downey Jr. - “He’s the only guy with real power in this situation. and balls of steel, too. He’s already sent a message that he’s not going to work for a place where they treat his colleagues like shit.” one source explained.
  • Joss Whedon revealed that he originally wanted Captain Marvel to take the place of Scarlet Witch in The New Avengers Team, and Spider-Man would have been in Avengers Age of Ultron, but Sony and Marvel didn't reach a deal in time.
  • At Comic-Con 2013, Aaron Taylor-Johnson confirmed that he was in negotiations to portray Quicksilver, stating that he'd met with Joss Whedon, had begun extensive research on the character and is particularly interested in the relationship and backstory with [Quicksilver and] Scarlet Witch.
  • Coincidentally, Johnson's Kick-Ass co-star Evan Peters was cast as Bryan Singer's version of Quicksilver in X-Men: Days of Future Past.
  • Saoirse Ronan was considered to play Scarlet Witch. The Hollywood Reporter later confirmed this when it was announced that Elizabeth Olsen entered negotiations to play the character, stating that Ronan "passed on the offer". It was also revealed that Joss Whedon used Ronan as the main inspiration for the concept art of the character. 
  • Joss Whedon said that Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch aren't going to be immediate allies of The Avengers.
  • In the Title Reveal Teaser presented at Comic-Con 2013, Thor's dialogue "After all this time, why return now" has never been heard before the teaser was released. The dialogue for Iron Man, Captain America, Bruce Banner, Nick Fury, and Maria Hill was taken from "The Avengers" except Thor's. However, the dialogue is featured in a deleted scene in Thor: The Dark World.
  • The addition of Quicksilver to the cast sparked wide discussion over the direction of the character who is also slated to appear in X-Men: Days of Future Past. Quicksilver had been discussed previously as a potential character in both X-Men: The Last Stand and The Avengers, but legal complexities over the license to the character resulted in his omission from both films. However, in May 2013 both Marvel and Fox Studios announced a resolution to the previous legal issues, and that Quicksilver would appear in this film as well as an X-Men sequel, though under certain parameters: no allusion to his relations to the X-Men or Magneto (the character's father) can be made in an Avengers film, and no reference to Quicksilver's membership in the Avengers can be made in an X-Men film; the rights agreement between Fox and Marvel even goes so far as to stipulate the character cannot be referred to as a mutant in any Marvel film. Additionally, the day after Fox announced Evan Peters as Quickilver, Marvel and Fox entered into a legal standoff over provisions of the rights agreement for the character, including the issue of whether Peters would be allowed to portray Quicksilver in any other film outside the X-Men franchise, possibly necessitating a second actor to play Quicksilver in any Marvel film, resulting in two different versions of the same character appearing in two competing film series. As of May 2013, this dispute which also includes the character Scarlet Witch (Quicksilver's twin sister) has yet to be resolved.
  • Louis D'Esposito revealed that Tony Stark will be co-leading the Avengers with Captain America in the film.
  • Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth have stated in separate interviews that Joss Whedon initially hadn't told them the arc of the plot, with Evans claiming that he didn't even know the title of the film until the official announcement at Comic-Con. Additionally, Hemsworth and Cobie Smulders, who played Maria Hill in the first film, have both admitted to not knowing who Ultron is.
  • Anthony Mackie has expressed his enthusiasm to return as The Falcon after Captain America: The Winter Soldier, revealing that he thinks the character could benefit from appearing in a large-scale ensemble like The Avengers. Mackie also joked that he wished to "take down Iron Man" so Falcon could be the only "flying-Avenger".
  • Hugh Jackman and Andrew Garfield have also expressed interest to play Wolverine and Spider-Man in an Avengers sequel despite the rights issues between Marvel, Fox and Sony. Jackman stated that he wanted to see Wolverine battle Iron Man.
  • The original release date of Ant-Man being pushed up to July 31, 2015 has sparked more speculation regarding Henry Pym having a possible cameo in Age of Ultron.
  • James Spader was Joss Whedon's first and only choice for the role of Ultron, because of his "hypnotic voice that can be eerily calm and compelling while also being very human and humorous."
  • In the comics, Ultron was created by Dr Hank Pym (Ant-Man). In this film Ultron is a dormant project developed by Tony Stark, while Pym gets his own separate story in Ant-Man (2015).
  • Because Ultron was described as 8-9 feet tall, James Spader had to wear an antennae-like contraption made out of a thick piece of wire with two red balls attached to the top that went up his entire back and 3 feet above his head. This was done so that the actors that shared scenes with him would be able to have a reference point for where his eyes would be; the two red balls represented the placement of Ultron's eyes. Elizabeth Olsen stated that this was actually distracting because Spader would be giving an intense performance and out of instinct she would look at him rather than the balls representing his eyes. Much to everyone's amusement, whenever this happened, Aaron Taylor-Johnson would yell, "Red balls! Look at his balls, Lizzie!" at her in order to get her to look in the right direction.
  • Thanos was considered to be the next villain, but Whedon decided against him in favor of Ultron: "We have to stay grounded. It's part of what makes the Marvel universe click, their relationship to the real world. Thanos is not out of the mix, but Thanos was never meant to be the next villain - he's always been the overlord of villainy and darkness." Instead, Thanos was scheduled to appear for the finale, Avengers: Infinity War - Part I (2018) and Avengers: Infinity War - Part II (2019).
  • On James Spader's first day on set, the cast was so impressed by his performance that they applauded and cheered for him after his first take.
  • James Spader was Joss Whedon's first and only choice for the role of Ultron, because of his "hypnotic voice that can be eerily calm and compelling while also being very human and humorous".
  • James Spader uses his natural speaking voice for Ultron, with no accent or alteration of his voice.
  • So far in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, four of the six infinity stones/gems have been found. The Tesseract/Space Gem (Captain America: The First Avenger, The Avengers), The Aether/Reality Gem (Thor: The Dark World), Loki's Scepter/Mind Gem (The Avengers) and The Orb/Power Gem (Guardians of the Galaxy).
  • Industrial Light & Magic developed a new motion capture system for the film called Muse, to better capture the actor's facial/body movements and combine different takes of the same performance, with regards to Ultron and the Hulk. Andy Serkis was brought on board to contribute towards Muse's design and improvement.
  • After this film and Avengers 3, Robert Downey Jr. was going to retire from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, he later signed on for Captain America: Civil War (2016).
  • The trailer was viewed 34 million times on YouTube in the first 24 hours after it was released. This broke the record that was previously held by Iron Man 3 (2013).
  • Aaron Taylor-Johnson was asked to lose weight (muscle mass in particular) because he looked too strong to portray a runner, who is usually trim.
  • James Spader described Ultron as self-absorbed and immature: "He sees the world from a very strange, biblical point of view because he's brand new, he's very young... He's immature, and yet has knowledge of comprehensive, broad history and precedent, and he has created in a very short period of time a rather skewed worldview."
  • In the first trailer, Ultron recites "No Strings On Me", a song from Pinocchio (1940), a Walt Disney film about an inanimate being who gains sentience; Ultron serves as a dark parallel of Pinocchio.
  • It took Joss Whedon a year to convince Aaron Taylor-Johnson to accept the role of Quicksilver. Johnson was concerned over the intensity of the Marvel contracts, the time constraints, and the fact that it was going to be such a large cast. Even after he accepted the role, he was still nervous, but was comforted after he learned that his friend and Godzilla (2014) co star Elizabeth Olsen would be playing his sister and would be his filming partner through most of the movie.
  • Joss Whedon cast Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch because he thought their powers would be cool to use in a film: "Their powers are very visually interesting... One of the problems I had on the first one was everybody basically had punchy powers... Quicksilver's got super speed; Scarlet Witch can weave spells and a little telekinesis, get inside your head. That's good stuff they can do that will help keep it fresh."
  • According to Mark Ruffalo, his portrayal of the Hulk is inspired by Peter David's Hulk comics, where the Hulk and Bruce Banner were a split personality case: "There's a very cool thing happening in the film: Hulk is as afraid of Banner as Banner is afraid of Hulk. Both of these guys are obviously the same guy, and they have got to come to peace somehow with each other. And this confrontation is building across this film."
  • Scarlett Johansson was pregnant during filming of this movie so her scenes had to be shot first before she began to show.
  • Joss Whedon described this film as "smaller. More personal. More painful. The next thing that should happen to these characters, and not just a rehash of what worked the first time. A theme that is completely fresh and organic to itself."
  • Black Widow declines trying to pull Thor's hammer. Ironically, in the comics she was deemed worthy to wield it in an alternate reality story.
  • Hugh Jackman, who plays Wolverine in the X-Men films, has expressed an interest to play Wolverine in an Avengers sequel despite the rights issues between Marvel, Fox and Sony; Jackman stated that he wanted to see Wolverine battle Iron Man.
  • The first trailer was intended to be released after the October 28th 2014 episode of Marvel's TV show Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (2013) . A low-quality version of the trailer leaked online on October 22nd 2014. In response, Marvel published the HD version of the first trailer on its official YouTube channel the same day. Marvel's official Twitter account announced the official trailer with a tongue-in cheek statement blaming Marvel's villainous organization HYDRA for the leak.
  • Hawkeye's new uniform combines elements of his original Marvel Comic outfit, his Ultimate Marvel outfit, and his Ronin identity.
  • The film was named after a 2013 Marvel comic series 'Age of Ultron.' However Kevin Feige explained that that particular comic would not be used as a storyline: "We came up with a few titles, but every month a new comic book appears, and 'Age Of Ultron' is a great title. We had a few other 'Of Ultrons', but that was the best one. So we're borrowing that title, but taking storylines from decades of Avengers storylines."
  • Aaron Taylor-Johnson described his approach to Quicksilver as inspired by the "Marvel Ultimates" comic: "Him and his sister have been abandoned by their parents and they grew up in Eastern Europe defending and looking out for themselves and each other. His sister really is his guidance - emotionally she's the one who looks after him, and vice versa. He's very overprotective physically - he doesn't want anyone touching her."
  • "Marvel Ultimates" comic is famous for featuring a controversial incestuous story-line between Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch. According to Elizabeth Olsen, while this particular aspect would not be overtly present in the film, she and Aaron Taylor-Johnson "played around" with certain parts of it: "Every time you see an image of them, they're always holding each other's hand and looking over each other's shoulder. They're always so close, it's almost uncomfortable. Aaron and I have been playing a little bit with those kinds of images just for ourselves."
  • Joss Whedon described Ultron as a perfect villain for the Avengers: "He's got a bee in his bonnet, he's always trying to destroy the Avengers! He's not a happy guy, which means he's an interesting guy. He's got pain."
  • The Hulkbuster armor has three Arc Reactors on the front, one on the Chest and one on each knee, and four on the back. Excluding the Arc Reactor of the suit worn underneath the Hulkbuster, it's safe to say that it takes seven Arc Reactors just to power the gargantuan suit.
  • The prelude to this film is on the mid credit scene of Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014).
  • This film marks the first Marvel Cinematic Universe appearance of Tony Stark without Pepper Potts, with the exception of his cameo role in The Incredible Hulk (2008).
  • In every movie featuring Tony Stark in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Robert Downey Jr.'s character, Tony Stark, is always grabbed by the throat. Thor grabs Tony by the throat, making this the 5th time.
  • Cameo[Stan Lee]: A veteran at the Avengers' party, who takes a drink of Thor's ale and passes out. Lee has said this is his favorite cameo to date.
  • Joss Whedon wanted to get a "number of different looks and textures and moods" to give the film a different and fresh aesthetic from its predecessor, so he shot in different locations around the world, including South Africa, England, Italy and Korea.
  • This film has the most VFX shots for any Marvel movie to date, with over 3000 VFX shots; previously Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) held the record with 2,750 VFX shots.
  • Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth have stated in separate interviews that Joss Whedon initially hadn't told them the arc of the plot, with Evans claiming that he didn't even know the title of the film until the official announcement at Comic-Con. Additionally, Hemsworth and Cobie Smulders (Maria Hill) have both admitted to not knowing who Ultron is.
  • Joss Whedon claimed that juggling all the characters in the film was "a nightmare": "They're very disparate characters. The joy of the Avengers is they really don't belong in the same room. It's not like the X-Men, who are all tortured by the same thing and have similar costumes. These guys are just all over the place. And so it's tough." He was so exhausted with working on this film, that he decided not to direct the sequels Avengers: Infinity War - Part I (2018) and Avengers: Infinity War - Part II (2019).
  • In the trailer presented at Comic-Con 2013, the dialogue for Iron Man, Captain America, Bruce Banner, Nick Fury, and Maria Hill was taken from The Avengers (2012) except Thor's, which came from a deleted scene of Thor: The Dark World (2013).
  • When Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson learned that their roles Wanda and Pietro Maximoff would be based on their "Marvel Ultimates" version, both actors read and studied every single issue in order to prepare for the role.
  • Elizabeth Olsen described the Scarlet Witch as unstable: "She has such a vast amount of knowledge that she's unable to learn how to control it. No one taught her how to control it properly. So it gets the best of her. It's not that she's mentally insane, it's just that she's just overly stimulated. And she can connect to this world and parallel worlds at the same time."
  • In the comics, Lt. Col. James Rhodes (War Machine) has been in three different teams of Avengers: the main Avengers, the West Coast Avengers (led by Hawkeye) and the Secret Avengers (led by Captain America). Here, all three Avengers members appear in the same team.
  • Cobie Smulders described Maria Hill as being shell-shocked from Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014): "We're coming into this movie where we don't really know who's a good guy and who's a bad guy and she's trying to figure out that throughout this film. She's not getting any sleep, she's doing all the work. She doesn't have the kind of manpower that she had in S.H.I.E.L.D."
  • Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen worked back to back with each other first playing husband and wife in Godzilla (2014) and now twin brother-sister in this film.
  • In the trailer, Ultron compares himself to Pinocchio. Robert Downey Jr. is playing the role of Gepetto in an upcoming reboot of Pinocchio.
  • Lou Ferrigno contributed to the voice of the Hulk in this film. He has played the Hulk in almost every live-action version since 1978: he played the Hulk in The Incredible Hulk (1978) and its subsequent three TV specials, and he voiced the Hulk in the big-screen The Incredible Hulk (2008) in which he also played "security guard" - he also played a security guard in Hulk (2003). He also has voiced the Hulk in various animated productions.
  • In his cameo, after getting drunk, Stan Lee says "Excelsior", the same phrase with which he ended his weekly "Stan's Soapbox" with, which appeared in every Marvel comic book.
  • In comics, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver are born mutants. In this movie, they got their powers due to experimentation of HYDRA on them.
  • Paul Bettany described the Vision as a nascent newborn: "He's both omnipotent and totally naive, the sort of danger of that and complex nature of a thing being born that is that powerful. The choices he makes morally are really complex and interesting."
  • Elizabeth Olsen stated in an interview that she is happy that her character's outfit is not accurate to the comic book as it would be inappropriate for combat.
  • At some point, the Abomination (the villain from The Incredible Hulk) was going to be an antagonist in the film or secondary villain and Tim Roth would have reprised his role from that film. However, the Abomination was written out of the film.
  • Avengers: Infinity War, Part I and Avengers: Infinity War, Part II were announced before the release of this film.
  • Chris Evans (Captain America), Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Quicksilver) and Stellan Skarsgård (Dr. Selvig) all share the same birthday of June 13 while Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner) and Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow) share the same birthday of November 22.
  • In this film, Quicksilver/Pietro Maximoff is played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson. In X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) Quicksilver/Peter Maximoff is played by Evan Peters. The two actors were both in Kick-Ass (2010).
  • Quicksilver's running VFX were created by first filming with an ultra-high-speed camera and then filming Aaron Taylor-Johnson running in the same scene at regular speed, and then digitally splicing the two scenes together.
  • Although name checked for the first time, and playing a significant part in the plot, this actually marks the second time the fictional kingdom of Wakanda appears in a Marvel movie. Wakanda was referred to in Iron Man 2 (2010) where it can be seen as on of the hot spots on Nick Fury's map. In the comics Wakanda is ruled by T'Challa, better known as the avenger The Black Panther, who is set to make his MCU debut in Captain America: Civil War (2016).
  • Aaron Taylor-Johnson's favorite superhero amongst the Avengers is Chris Hemsworth. Taylor-Johnson was impressed by Hemsworth saying, "The only one who has an otherworldly superhero physique is Hemsworth. The size of his arms is like the size of my thighs. Just to be an actor and transform your physique and body to that level, he's essentially a god. Everyone in the cast is charming and brilliant, but you look around the room and you go 'that guy is definitely the superhero."
  • Joss Whedon was inspired by The Godfather: Part II (1974): "It's a very different movie from the first film and a ton has happened in-between, but you don't need any information. It's there in the film about what's happened since, what's different, and why is this a different film; why is it a different kind of structure, and why is it darker. It's all there, you're in the vernacular of the first movie and you're just ready to pick up in this new place, and hopefully that's what will happen with my movie. "
  • Robert Downey Jr., Jeremy Renner, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo and Scarlett Johansson were called in three months before the release of the film to do several re-shoots.
  • This will be the first time in the Marvel cinematic universe that Thor appears in a movie without Loki. It was originally rumored that Tom Hiddleston would reprise the role of Loki in a cameo but Loki does not appear at all in the final cut.
  • To keep production a secret, the working title for the film was "After Party".
  • According to Aaron Taylor-Johnson, no one realized that no plans for a wrap party had been made until the last day of filming. As a result, director Joss Whedon gathered the cast at the end of the day and made them walk around the small Italian town they were filming in while it snowed heavily, until he found an appropriate place for a party. They finally found a small club, and the cast, along with Whedon danced until four in the morning.
  • Approximately 200 German small town movie theaters boycotted the film upon its release after distribution company Disney announced that they demanded 53% of ticket sales as movie rent without taking into account the smaller sizes of small town venues.

  • The general attire of Pietro and Wanda Maximoff in this film is a tribute to their appearance in X-Men: Evolution, where Pietro had on blue jeans and sports shirts, and Wanda had on a black dress and red coat.

  • Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) wears a Bruce Lee T-shirt. Downey Jr. has a black belt in Wing-Chun.
  • Shooting in Korea occurred in the Gangnam district, the area that originated the popular song "Gangnam Style". The cast and crew danced to that song during breaks.
  • In scenes where a body double couldn't be used for a pregnant Scarlet Johansen, CGI was used to edit out her pregnant belly.
  • When Scarlet Witch tries to mind control Hawkeye, he turns around and neutralizes her. He then quips: "I tried the mind control thing. Not a fan!" This is a reference to Jeremy Renners being openly displeased with being mind controlled by Loki during most of "The Avengers".
  • Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye) and Anthony Mackie (The Falcon) previously worked together in the Best Picture Oscar winner The Hurt Locker (2008)
  • Elizabeth Olsen worked with a dance choreographer to make her movements more graceful for action sequences.
  • On this film, production designer Charles Wood and his team built an enormous, new Avengers Tower set that is the largest set ever built for a Marvel film.

  • Both Robert Downey Jr. and Aaron Taylor-Johnson have portrayed incarnations of Charles Chaplin. Downey Jr. in Chaplin and Taylor-Johnson played a younger version of the character in Shanghai Knights.
  • This film has additional music composed by Danny Elfman. This would be Elfman's fifth superhero venture after Tim Burton's Batman films, The Flash, Sam Raimi's Spider-Man films and Ang Lee's Hulk.

Elizabeth Olsen drew on her relationship with her older brother and her twin sisters to prepare for the role.

  • The Avengers tower seen in the trailer was teased in the first Avengers movie, but revealed in an easter egg during a scene in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. When the helipads are activated before cap shuts them down, you can see the finished Avengers tower with a picture of Anthony Stark.
  • This is Aaron Taylor-Johnson's third comic-book movie. He previously played the title role of Dave Lizewski/Kick-Ass in both Kick-Ass and Kick-Ass 2.
  • Besides appearing in the scene at the Avengers tower where the Avengers attempted to lift Mjolnir, War Machine (Colonel James Rhodes) did not make any appearance in any trailers until the eighteenth TV spot. Here, he is distinctly lacking his Iron Patriot color scheme, which was most likely scrapped between the events of Iron Man 3 and Avengers: Age of Ultron. However he still sports the same Heads-up Display to Iron Patriot as seen in Iron Man 3.

  • Sokovia is an Anglicized spelling of the Slavic term "Sokovija", or "land of juices" ("Sokovi" means "juices").
  • When Ultron first appears in the first trailer, his head appears black with a faded golden face. But with the reveal of the Hot Toys Iron Man Mark XVIII with a detachable Ultron figure(dubbed 'Damaged' Ultron Mark I), his head turns out to be a deep/navy blue with a faded golden face. The black in the trailer is most likely to do with the lighting of the scene, or a change of the color in either the figure, or CGI render.
  • On the small jet early in the film there is the sticker "jarvis is my co-pilot". This is most likely an homage to the joss whedon franchise "firely/serenity" merchandising accessory which reads "wash is my co-pilot"

  • This is the second Robert Downey Jr.. movie to have additional music composed by Danny Elfman, the other film being Back to School where Elfman performed in the movie with his band Oingo Boingo.

  • In September 2013, James Spader revealed that he went in for extensive body scans, facial scans to portray Ultron stating - "I have spoken to Joss Whedon about it. And yes, actually, just this weekend I went in for them to take very extensive photographs, head scans, body scans, and all kinds of things in preparation for figuring out how the hell I’m gonna fit in this Ultron character!" [1] Kevin Feige, adding in October 2013: "Well, I think it will be more than a voice role - we'll be capturing his face and his body to create a whole performance. He's a very unique and incredibly exciting and unpredictable actor. And Ultron in the comics is a robot, but what's cool about him in the comics -- and certainly how Joss Whedon is interpreting him for the movie -- is that he is much more than just a robot. That he's infused with much character. And I don't want to say too much, but you can imagine James Spader will be very dynamic in his portrayal of this character. We did not hire James Spader to do a robot voice".[2]
  • This film will mark Robert Downey Jr. and James Spader's third collaboration together after both starring in Tuff Turf (1985) and Less Than Zero (1987).
  • Robert Downey Jr. and Joss Whedon spoke more about Ultron and Tony Stark in Entertainment Weekly stating: “What you said about abdication is apt, but I think it’s also about recognizing limitations,” Robert Downey Jr. says. “The downside of self-sacrifice is that if you make it back, you’ve been out there on the spit and you’ve been turned a couple times and you feel a little burned and traumatized.” with the article going on to explain that Stark does indeed create Ultron: For better or worse (trust us, it’s worse), Tony Stark has devised a plan that won’t require him to put on the Iron Man suit anymore, and should allow Captain America, Thor, Black Widow, Hawkeye, and the Hulk to get some much needed R&R as well. His solution is Ultron, self-aware, self-teaching, artificial intelligence designed to help assess threats, and direct Stark’s Iron Legion of drones to battle evildoers instead. The only problem? Ultron (played by James Spader through performance-capture technology) lacks the human touch, and his superior intellect quickly determines that life on Earth would go a lot smoother if he just got rid of Public Enemy No. 1: Human beings. “Ultron sees the big picture and he goes, ‘Okay, we need radical change, which will be violent and appalling, in order to make everything better’; he’s not just going ‘Muhaha, soon I’ll rule!’” Whedon says, rubbing his hands together. “He’s on a mission,” the filmmaker adds, and smiles thinly. “He wants to save us.”[3]

  • Thanos was considered to be the next villain, but Whedon decided against him in favour of Ultron: "We have to stay grounded. It's part of what makes the Marvel universe click, their relationship to the real world. Thanos is not out of the mix, but Thanos was never meant to be the next villain - he's always been the overlord of villainy and darkness."
  • In the Title Reveal Teaser presented at Comic-Con 2013, Thor's dialogue "After all this time, why return now" has never been heard before the teaser was released. The dialogue for Iron Man, Captain America, Bruce Banner, Nick Fury, and Maria Hill was taken from "The Avengers" except Thor's. However, this dialogue can been seen in the deleted scenes of Thor: The Dark World.
  • The film was named after a 2013 Marvel comic series 'Age of Ultron.' However Kevin Feige explained that that particular comic would not be used as a storyline: "We came up with a few titles, but every month a new comic book appears, and 'Age Of Ultron' is a great title. We had a few other 'Of Ultrons', but that was the best one. So we're borrowing that title, but taking storylines from decades of Avengers storylines."
  • Emily Blunt and Ruth Wilson were rumored the front runners for the role of Carol Danvers/Ms. Marvel.
  • Aaron Taylor-Johnson described his approach to Quicksilver as inspired by the Ultimates comic version from Marvel's Ultimate Comics imprint: "Him and his sister have been abandoned by their parents and their father, and they grew up in Eastern Europe defending and looking out for themselves and each other. His sister really is his guidance - emotionally she's the one who looks after him, and vice versa. He's very overprotective physically - he doesn't want anyone touching her." 
  • It took Joss Whedon a year to convince Aaron Taylor-Johnson to accept the role of Quicksilver. Johnson was concerned over the intensity of the Marvel contracts, the time constraints, and the fact that it was going to be such a large cast. Even after he accepted the role, he was still nervous, but was comforted after he learned that his friend and Godzilla (2014) co star Elizabeth Olsen would be playing his sister and would be his filming partner through most of the movie.
  • In the comics, Ultron was created by Dr Hank Pym (Ant-Man). In this film he is created by Tony Stark, while Pym gets his own separate story in Ant-Man (2015).
  • To help hide Scarlett Johansson's pregnancy, three stunt doubles were hired. This caused a lot of confusion among the other actors since, according to them, all of the stunt women looked very similar to Johansson. Chris Evans stated that it got to the point where he would say hello and start a conversation with one of them, only to realize mid way that the person he was talking to wasn't Johansson.
  • Saoirse Ronan was considered to play Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch.
  • Lindsay Lohan sought to audition for the role of Wanda Maximoff.
  • On James Spader's first day on set, the cast were so impressed by his performance that they applauded and cheered for him after his first take.
  • Because Ultron was described as 8-9 feet tall, James Spader had to wear an antennae-like contraption made out of a thick piece of wire with two red balls attached to the top that went up his entire back and 3 feet above his head. This was done so that the actors that shared scenes with him would be able to have a reference point for where his eyes would be (the two red balls represented the placement of Ultron's eyes). Elizabeth Olsen stated that this was actually distracting because Spader would be giving an intense performance and out of instinct she would look at him rather than the balls representing his eyes. Much to everyone's amusement, whenever this happened, Aaron Taylor-Johnson would yell, "Red balls! Look at his balls, Lizzie!" at her in order to get her to look in the right direction.
  • It was planned that after this film was finished Robert Downey Jr. and Avengers 3, he would retire from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, Downey signed on for Captain America: Civil War (2016).
  • Joss Whedon cast Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch because he thought their powers would be cool to use in a film: "Their powers are very visually interesting... One of the problems I had on the first one was everybody basically had punchy powers... Quicksilver's got super speed; Scarlet Witch can weave spells and a little telekinesis, get inside your head. That's good stuff they can do that will help keep it fresh."
  • At his panel during the Salt Lake Comic-Con, Stan Lee stated that his cameo in this film is his favorite cameo he has done.
  • This film marks the first Marvel Cinematic Universe appearance of Tony Stark without Pepper Potts, with the exception of his cameo role in The Incredible Hulk.
  • This film marks the first Marvel Cinematic Universe appearance of Thor without Loki.
  • The film was named after a 2013 Marvel comic series 'Age of Ultron.' However Kevin Feige explained that that particular comic would not be used as a storyline: "We came up with a few titles, but every month a new comic book appears, and 'Age Of Ultron' is a great title. We had a few other 'Of Ultrons', but that was the best one. So we're borrowing that title, but taking storylines from decades of Avengers storylines."
  • James Spader described Ultron as self-absorbed and immature: "He sees the world from a very strange, biblical point of view because he's brand new, he's very young... He's immature, and yet has knowledge of comprehensive, broad history and precedent, and he has created in a very short period of time a rather skewed worldview."
  • "Marvel Ultimates" comic is famous for featuring a controversial story-line between Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch. According to Elizabeth Olsen, while this particular aspect would not be overtly present in the film, she and Aaron Taylor-Johnson "played around" with certain parts of it: "Every time you see an image of them, they're always holding each other's hand and looking over each other's shoulder. They're always so close, it's almost uncomfortable. Aaron and I have been playing a little bit with those kinds of images just for ourselves."
  • This film has the most VFX shots for any Marvel movie to date, with over 3000 VFX shots; previously Guardians of the Galaxy held the record with 2,750 VFX shots.
  • According to Mark Ruffalo, his portrayal of the Hulk is inspired by Peter David's Hulk comics, where the Hulk and Bruce Banner were a split personality case: "There's a very cool thing happening in the film: Hulk is as afraid of Banner as Banner is afraid of Hulk. Both of these guys are obviously the same guy, and they have got to come to peace somehow with each other. And this confrontation is building across this film."
  • Brian Tyler's music score for the film will pay homage to films like Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981), Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977) and Superman (1978).
  • Elizabeth Olsen described the Scarlet Witch as unstable: "She has such a vast amount of knowledge that she's unable to learn how to control it. No one taught her how to control it properly. So it gets the best of her. It's not that she's mentally insane, it's just that she's just overly stimulated. And she can connect to this world and parallel worlds at the same time."
  • Cobie Smulders described Maria Hill as being shell-shocked from Captain America: The Winter Soldier: "We're coming into this movie where we don't really know who's a good guy and who's a bad guy and she's trying to figure out that throughout this film. She's not getting any sleep, she's doing all the work. She doesn't have the kind of manpower that she had in S.H.I.E.L.D."
  • The first trailer was intended to be released after the October 28th 2014 episode of Marvel's TV show Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. A low-quality version of the trailer leaked online on October 22nd 2014. In response, Marvel published the HD version of the first trailer on its official YouTube channel the same day. Marvel's official Twitter account announced the official trailer with a tongue-in cheek statement blaming the Marvel's villainous organization HYDRA for the leak.
  • Industrial Light & Magic developed a new motion capture system for the film called Muse, to better capture the actor's facial/body movements and combine different takes of the same performance, with regards to Ultron and the Hulk. Andy Serkis was brought on board to contribute towards Muse's design and improvement.
  • Scarlett Johansson described her role as having more backstory: "All these characters have deep, dark pasts, and hers is a very complex one, where she's realizing she never made an active choice, she's a product of other people's imposition. That's going to catch up with her. That's bound to have a huge effect. There's got to be a result of that realization... You'll see her actively making some choices in her life, for better or worse."
  • Hawkeye's new uniform combines elements of his original Marvel Comic outfit, his Ultimate Marvel outfit, and his Ronin identity.
  • Hugh Jackman has expressed an interest to play Wolverine in an Avengers sequel despite the rights issues between Marvel, Fox and Sony. Jackman stated that he wanted to see Wolverine battle Iron Man.
  • While Andy Serkis did do some motion capture for Mark Ruffalo to potray to the Hulk, he was offered an unknown role in the movie. In the leaked trailer, there was a short shot of him where he appears similar to Ulysses Klaw, main villain of Black Panther.
  • This is Joss Whedon's first directorial sequel, although he did direct Serenity (2005) which was a movie follow up to his television series Firefly (2002).
  • Ultron is seen wearing a crimson cowl. In his first appearance (Avengers #54 1968), he wore one throughout the comic and had the alias of the Crimson Cowl.
  • This is last time this squad of Avengers will be seen together. After this movie Avenger team will be different.
  • This is the second Robert Downey Jr.. movie to have additional music composed by Danny Elfman, the other film being Back to School (1986) where Elfman performed in the movie with his band Oingo Boingo.
  • In the trailer, we see Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) wearing a Bruce lee shirt. This could be an homage to Downey Jr. being a black belt in wing-chun (one of the martial arts Lee took) in real life
  • This is from the Chapter Five of Phase Two in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
  • In comics, Vision was created by Ultron to kill Avengers. In this movie, he's created by Bruce Banner and Tony Stark, which also explains his colour combination of Red, Green and Golden. Red and Golden are the combinations of Tony Stark's Iron Man armour and Green is the colour of Hulk.
  • It is rumored The Punisher will become a member of The Avengers. In the 1993 video game of "The Punisher", Nick Fury teamed up with The Punisher to bring down Kingpin and his organization. If The Punisher does become apart of The Avengers, it's possible Nick Fury and Frank Castle may had served together in the military and Castle may had saved Fury's life, when Fury lost his eye in the line of duty. In the comic books, Nick Fury was a World War II pilot, whilst Frank Castle was a U.S. Marine Captain whom fought in Vietnam.
  • In comics, Ultron created Vision to defeat Avengers but Vision teams up with Avengers to defeat Ultron and becomes an Avenger. In this movie he's created by Avengers to defeat Ultron and is already an Avenger.
  • Claudia Kim was acted in South Korea when she was cast in the movie.
  • Joss Whedon wanted to get a "number of different looks and textures and moods" to give the film a different and fresh aesthetic from its predecessor, so he shot in different locations around the world, including South Africa, England, Italy and South Korea.
  • Paul Bettany described the Vision as a nascent newborn: "He's both omnipotent and totally naive, the sort of danger of that and complex nature of a thing being born that is that powerful. The choices he makes morally are really complex and interesting."
  • Although Pietro Maximoff/Quicksilver's costume is significantly different from it's comic companion, the color scheme (blue and white) remains the same.
  • Elizabeth Olsen drew on her relationship with her older brother and her twin sisters to prepare for the role.
  • This is not Aaron Taylor-Johnson's first time in a comic book movie. He previously played the title role of Dave Lizewski/Kick-Ass in both Kick-Ass and it's sequel.
  • Elizabeth Olsen stated in an interview that she is happy that her characters outfit is not comic book accurate as it would not be appropriate for fighting and the designers did not want to do the outfit either
  • Robert Downey Jr. described Ultron's creation as a process of recognizing limitations: "The downside of self-sacrifice is that if you make it back, you've been out there on the spit and you've been turned a couple times and you feel a little burned and traumatized. Tony Stark wants a break from saving the world, having done so at least nine times now."
  • The first live action adaptation of Tony Stark's Hulkbuster armor.
  • Will mark the first Marvel Studios film to have an actor play two different characters in the same film, as Paul Bettany will be voicing J.A.R.V.I.S. in the film, and physically portraying Vision.
  • Steve Rogers is the only Avenger besides Thor who is able to move the enchanted hammer Mjolnir. In the comics, Steve was deemed worthy to wield the hammer.
  • Ultron takes various Iron Man armours for his body. This is a homage to Tony Stark designing a sentient armor in the comics, which lost its morality and tried to kill Stark. Incidentally, that was Ultron's doing - he'd developed an android named Jocasta, who eventually rebelled against her master and became an Avenger and Tony Stark's mechanical aide, but suffered from being programmed to rebuild Ultron.
  • In the comics, Black Widow was a former ballerina subject to mental conditioning and experimentation. Scarlett Johansson describes this part of her history as critical to her role in the film: "She's realizing she never made an active choice, she's a product of other people's imposition. That's going to catch up with her. That's bound to have a huge effect. There's got to be a result of that realization... You'll see her actively making some choices in her life, for better or worse."
  • Joss Whedon describes Ultron as having a mission: "Ultron sees the big picture and he decides to implement radical change, violent and appalling, in order to make everything better. He wants to save us."
  • Robert Downey Jr. described Ultron's creation as a process of recognizing limitations: "The downside of self-sacrifice is that if you make it back, you've been out there on the spit and you've been turned a couple times and you feel a little burned and traumatized. Tony Stark wants a break from saving the world, having done so at least nine times now. So his focus is more on how can we make it so that there's no problem to begin with. That, you know, there's a bouncer at our planet's rope. That's the big idea."
  • There are references from Capcom's Street Fighter, such as Hawkeye having a family, while Black Widow's has voice actor in a post-EoMH cartoon series.
  • Quicksilvers first and last words were "You didn't see that coming?" and each time he said it to Hawkeye.
  • Hawkeye named his newborn son, Nathaniel Pietro Barton after Quicksilver, after he sacrificed himself for Hawkeye in the climatic scene.
  • In the comics, Black Widow was a former ballerina subject to mental conditioning and experimentation. Scarlett Johansson describes this part of her history as critical to her role in the film: "She's realizing she never made an active choice, she's a product of other people's imposition. That's going to catch up with her. That's bound to have a huge effect. There's got to be a result of that realization... You'll see her actively making some choices in her life, for better or worse."
  • In every movie since Iron Man (2008), they tease the death of a character. In Iron Man (2008), after the fight at the end, Tony Stark is presumed dead but turns out alive when the chest reactor lits up. In Thor (2011), Loki floats off into space but lives. In Captain America: The First Avenger (2011), Captain America is frozen in ice and presumed dead as well as Bucky Barnes falling to a presumed death. Both return in future Marvel movies. In The Avengers (2012), Agent Coulson is killed by Loki but is brought back in the TV show, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (2013). In Iron Man 3 (2013), Pepper falls to a presumed death but is revealed to be alive. In Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014), Nick Fury is believed to be dead but is not. And at some point in the movie, all of the Guardians in Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) almost meet their demise. Marvel producer Kevin Feige states, "There will finally be someone who dies, in Ultron."
  • Before the release of the movie, Loki's Scepter was confirmed to house/be powered by an Infinity Stone. Many speculated that the Stone in question was the Mind Stone, given how it was used by Loki in The Avengers. Here, it is revealed by Thor himself that Loki's Scepter was in fact the Mind Stone, except it wasn't the blue gem visible to everyone. The blue gem we see in previous movies featuring the Scepter is actually a container for the Mind Stone, while the Stone itself is yellow.
  • Steve Rogers (Captain America) is the only Avenger, besides Thor and The Vison, who was able to move the enchanted hammer Mjolnir, albeit only making it budge slightly.
  • Ultron takes various Iron Man armours for his body. This is a homage to Tony Stark designing a sentient armor in the comics, which lost its morality and tried to kill Stark. Incidentally, that was Ultron's doing - he'd developed an android named Jocasta, who eventually rebelled against her master and became an Avenger and Tony Stark's mechanical aide, but suffered from being programmed to rebuild Ultron.
  • In the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. episode "The Dirty Half Dozen", it is Agent Coulson who breaks in to a Hydra base and locates Loki's scepter. He then contacts Maria Hill so she can let the Avengers know to go to Sokovia and retrieve it, as they do in the beginning of the film.
  • Robert Downey Jr. described Ultron's creation as a process of recognizing limitations: "The downside of self-sacrifice is that if you make it back, you've been out there on the spit and you've been turned a couple times and you feel a little burned and traumatized. Tony Stark wants a break from saving the world, having done so at least nine times now. So his focus is more on how can we make it so that there's no problem to begin with. That, you know, there's a bouncer at our planet's rope. That's the big idea."
  • Joss Whedon describes Ultron as having a mission: "Ultron sees the big picture and he decides to implement radical change, violent and appalling, in order to make everything better. He wants to save us."
  • In the comics, the supervillain Ulysses Klaw was manipulated into battling the Avengers by the Crimson Cowl, who was Ultron operating under an alias. This event appears in the film but leads into the upcoming MCU film Black Panther (2018), where Klaw becomes an antagonist of the hero.
  • The elaborate sculpture depicting the Avengers battling Ultron on top of a rock, as seen during the end credits, seems to be the same rock that Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) saw in his vision, with all of his comrades lying on top of it, either dead or dying.
  • The Scarlet Witch blasts all the Avengers with visions of people/things/secrets from their past, which shakes and affects them. This incident was taken from the Marvel Comic series "Original Sin", but there it was the cause of Uatu the Watcher.
  • Neither Quicksilver nor Scarlet Witch are called by their superhero names in this film. They are referred to as either 'the Enhanced', 'the Twins', or their names; Pietro and Wanda Maximoff.
  • All of the main, original Avengers in this film are manipulated in some way by Scarlet Witch, with the exception of Hawkeye. Incidentally, Hawkeye was the only member of the original Avengers to be under the mind control of Loki in Avengers Assemble.
  • In Thor's vision, later on in the film, a brief shot of the four currently revealed Infinity Stones are seen coming together to form 80% of an ethereal image of the Infinity Gauntlet (this includes the Orb, the Scepter, the Aether and the Tesseract). In this shot, it is revealed that the Aether and the Tesseract are actually containers of sorts for the Infinity Stones within. The Tesseract is shown to be shattered, revealing a more ovular blue gem, and the Aether disperses to reveal an ovular red gem.
  • Pietro Maximoff/Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) dies as he sacrifices himself to save Clint Barton/Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and a young boy. Later, when Black Widow receives a video call showing Barton's newborn son, the boy's bib reads his full name: Nathaniel Pietro Barton; no doubt the second name is in honor of Quicksilver.
  • Ulysses Klaue gets his hand cut off. In the comics, he is generally a one-handed super villain.
  • In Iron Man 3, if you look closely during the scene where Maya, Tony and Pepper are discussing the huge stuffed bunny in the living room, you can see Tony has hung a stocking for his A.I. JARVIS. The stocking just so happens to be the same colors as Vision (red, green and yellow), the android that Tony and Bruce turn JARVIS into in this film.
  • Thor's 'dream' sequence shows Heimdall blaming Thor for what's happened. This is foreshadowing the great battle of Ragnarök in which all the main characters from the Thor universe die.
  • Despite Ultron and The Vision having two seemingly different personalities, they share the same origins. They both came from the Mind Stone. Ultron was born from a dormant intelligence within the Mind Stone whereas The Vision was born from the remainder of the Stone's contents. So in a way, they are the 'good' and 'bad' of the Mind Stone, which suggests that the other Infinity Stones may possess their own sort of intelligence and personality.
  • Scarlet Witch wears a new costume at the end of the film, which is based on her "Uncanny Avengers" uniform (a low-cut blouse and pants, with a coat on top).
  • For the first time, a major hero (Quicksilver) dies permanently in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. All other Marvel heroes have either stayed alive, nearly died or get resurrected.
  • This is the first live-action appearance of Tony Stark's Hulkbuster armor; it had previously appeared in various Marvel animated series.
  • Black Widow mentions in the movie that she was sterlized as part of final lesson of her training as a spy. However, ironically, Scarlett Johansson who potrays Black Widow was pregnant at the time of filming.
  • Joss Whedon said that Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch aren't going to be immediate allies of The Avengers.
  • In the comics the Wasp was the one who gave the Vision his name, shocked upon seeing him for the first time. In the film he's named by Thor, who calls him part of the vision he got from the Scarlet Witch.
  • The only beings that have lifted Thor's magical hammer in the Marvel Cinimatic Universe are Thor, Odin, and Vision
  • All four of the main Avengers get held by the throat in this movie (Iron Man choked by Thor, Hulk choked by Iron Man, Thor and Captain America get choked by Ultron)
  • A number of lines and shots seen in previous trailers and TV spots didn't make the final cut of the film. For example, the shot at the end of the teaser trailer where Ultron Prime appears to approach the camera, tilting his head as he states "There are no strings on me", was at no point in Age of Ultron. Ultron's line(which was seemingly slapped together from his previous lines), "The world will scream! For mercy!" did not appear in the movie either.
  • During Ultron's rage about being compared to Tony Stark, the disks/plates that make up his 'cheeks' seem to disappear, and then move back into position when he is confronted by Thor, Captain America and Iron Man. It is possible that when angered, these cheek plates retract to allow his jaw more articulation, mainly for expressing speech, and possibly as a nod to the open mouthed face of Ultron in the comics.
  • The Lego sets for the film have spoiled some parts of the movie like the Hulkbuster Lego set, in which Scarlet Witch has caused the Hulk to rampage.
  • Every Marvel movie has a follow up that causes the Avengers movie, Thor (2011) and Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) lead to The Avengers (2012). Loki disappears in the cosmos and Captain America tries to stop red skull who has the tesseract which is a infinity stone. Iron Man 3 (2013) and Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) lead up to Avengers: Age Of Ultron, Tony stark built a prototype Iron Legion group to do his work when he can't do it, and Captain America stops Hydra from destroying the country and also introduces in the after Credit scene Baron Von Strucker and the Maximoff twins (Pietro and Wanda) who help the Avengers in Age Of Ultron.
  • The Mark XLV Iron Man used during the final battle is rumored to be the famous Heroic Age or The Bleeding Edge Armor that he used mainly in the comics.
  • In order for Iron Man to use his Mark XLIV/Hulkbuster, a satellite where Iron Man calls "Veronica", should launch the pod containing the Hulkbuster Armor, deploying itself around Iron Man. Another pod is deployed and follows the Hulkbuster during its battles. The floating and following pod contains spare and extra parts in order to replace certain damage or missing parts the Hulkbuster might face.
  • In comics, Vision was created by Ultron to kill the Avengers. In this movie, he's created by Bruce Banner and Tony Stark (and later given life by Thor) to aid the Avengers.
  • Tony Stark creates the Vision, an android (an artificial human being). His father Howard Stark had created the Human Torch, another android (seen in Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)).
  • The scene in the first trailer showed Thor lying down, and Captain's Shield torn apart, presumed dead, was just a vision when Scarlet Witch showing Iron Man/Tony Stark his greatest fear as he was about to grab Loki's Scepter at the beginning of the movie.
  • Ultron's very first body (dubbed Ultron Mark 1) resembles a very worn out, heavily damaged endoskeletal Iron Legion drone. However his limbs appear very asymmetrical. This is because Ultron actually created that first body from the disassembled Iron Legion Drone 03 as well as using other parts, which accounts for the patchwork-esque look.
  • In The Avengers: Age Of Utlron Trailer # 2, viewers might notice Black Widow carrying two rifles. Apparently, when the movie was released, she didn't wield those two rifles. Only one rifle was used by Bruce Banner in order for Black Widow to escape her prison cell.
  • Andy Serkis is the fourth cast member from the Star Wars franchise to enter the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Benicio del Toro previously portrayed Taneleer Tivan in Guardians of the Galaxy, Natalie Portman portrayed Jane Foster, and Samuel L. Jackson portrays Nick Fury.
