The Avengers: Age Of Ultron (2015) - Ultron Has Two Daddies!

That's according the article Entertainment Weekly will be putting out this week in their four-cover tie-in issue. Read on but be warned here there be SPOILERS for the film.

Specifically, Baron Strucker (played by Thomas Kretschman and introduced at the end of Captain America: The Winter Soldier) is the other daddy, along with Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.). Strucker and his agents of Hydra have stolen tech from S.H.I.E.L.D., including Loki's staff, and have been using them in human experiments. Two products of those experiments are the Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver (Aaron Johnson).

Another product is a AI that Stark steals to use, as Kevin Feige says, to help get him past the "hump" in his own AI research. And that results in none other than Ultron, who wants to destroy all of humanity.

So, there you have it! Ultron has two daddies and some serious adolescent anxieties that will lead to the story in Age Of Ultron.

Also, as a side note, notice how Marvel has moved Pietro and Wanda away from being mutants (which would make them legally off-limits since Sony has the exclusive rights to all of Marvel's mutant characters) and makes them "wonders" (and not inhumans, but that's another story) apart from that category. That coincides with what's going on currently in the "Uncanny Avengers" comic, where the twins recently discovered that Magneto is not their father and are now no longer sure they are mutants themselves.

"The Avengers: Age Of Ultron" his theaters on 01 May.
