The Avengers are back

Last Tuesday, Marvel released the official synopsis for “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” the upcoming sequel to “The Avengers.”

Iron Man, Captain America and other superheroes will return to the big screen in the highly anticipated sequel to the biggest super hero movie ever, and the continuation of the Marvel Cinematic Universe series.

“When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance,” said the official release from Marvel.

James Spader, who plays former fugitive Raymond Redding on NBC’s “Blacklist,” is cast as Ultron, a technological villain who seeks to drive humanity to extinction.

“It is up to the Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure,” said the Marvel release.

Robert Downey, Jr. will return as Iron Man, along with Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk. Actors Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Cobie Smulders (Maria Hill) and Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury) will also return.

The “Age of Ultron” promises spectacular visual effects and an action-packed global adventure. It will be released in 2D along with IMAX 3D on May 1, 2015.
