“I have to make my movie assuming that people will only have seen the first one, or possibly not even seen the first one. I can’t assume that everybody went to see Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Iron Man 3 in-between. I have to go from one movie to the next and be true to what’s happened, but not be slavish to it. The model I’m always trying to build from, my guiding star is The Godfather Part II where a ton has happened in-between and it’s a very different movie, but you don’t need any information: it’s there in the film.”

On IMBD, the movie is rated 6.8 out of 10, On Rotten Tomatoes, it is voted 76 % fresh. “Exuberant and eye-popping, Avengers: Age of Ultron serves as an overstuffed but mostly satisfying sequel, reuniting its predecessor’s unwieldy cast with a few new additions and a worthy foe,” said the website’s consensus.
Todd McCarthy from The Hollywood Reporter said, “Avengers: Age of Ultron succeeds in the top priority of creating a worthy opponent for its superheroes and giving the latter a few new things to do, but this time the action scenes don’t always measure up.”
“If this is what the apotheosis of branded, big-studio entertainment has come to look like in 2015, we could be doing much worse. Unlike its title character, Age of Ultron most definitely has soul,” said Scott Foundas from Variety.
