This past Monday marked the world premiere of The Avengers: Age of Ultron and we couldn’t be more excited! These famous Marvel heroes are some of our favourite Halloween costumes each year, and we’re ecstatic to see them on the big screen once again!
We’re all familiar with the usual cast: Thor, Iron Man, The Hulk, Captain America, Black Widow and Hawkeye. But Age of Ultron brings a new bad boy in town: Ultron.
As the name implies, Ultron is the newest (and coolest?) antagonist of the Avengers movies. Accidentally created by Tony Stark, he boasted ridiculous powers in the comics and is bound to make a splash in theatres. An adamantium-coated robot with superpowers? Sign me up as a fan! We’re sure that his cool armor will be a big hit at Halloween costume parties all over Canada this year!
On top of the introduction of Ultron, there are at least 5 more characters playing a key role in the upcoming movie. We won’t spoil you with any details, but here are some heroes that we can only wish would show up in The Avengers:
Yes, we know that Spiderman probably has a slim chance of ever being featured in The Avengers. But he comes from the same universe (Marvel) and interacted with S.H.I.E.L.D. in the comics, so who know!
Spiderman is one of our favourite Halloween costumes and superhero characters of all time. Peter Parker is a superhero for sure, but has a lot of weaknesses as compared tocharacters like Superman. We love his moral dilemmae and his growth as a character. His brightly-coloured spandex also contributes to his cool costume design!
Speaking of brightly-coloured spandex, we can’t finish this list without mentioning Wolverine. As an X-Men, Wolverine dons an X design on his costume to match his adamantium claws and super regeneration.
We know that these two superheroes aren’t going to make the new Avengers movie, but one can only hope that the Marvel cast will one day feature a crossover. Wouldn’t it be cool to see Wolverine and The Hulk in action against an alien threat?
Ultron is sure to be a huge threat as his armor is coated with adamanium-the same material as Wolverine’s claws. We can’t wait to see the movie!
