Comic-Con: Avengers 2 Entitled Avengers: Age of Ultron

Avengers: Age of UltronAs HitFix reports, Joss Whedon announced at Comic-Con that the second Avengers movie, set for release on May 1, 2015, is now called Avengers: Age of Ultron. HitFix has some background, starting with this:

“Age of Ultron” is the title of a recent mini-series written by Brian Michael Bendis that found the Marvel Universe effectively destroyed by The Avengers’ longtime nemesis Ultron. In the comic books, Ultron is an artificial intelligence accidentally created by Avenger Henry Pym (Ant-Man) for the greater good. Instead, Ultron – in robotic form – decides all of humanity must be destroyed beginning with his “father.”
