Avengers have decided to take it easy. After fighting off the aliens first time over, they now want someone else to come to the world's assistance.

And that is how we get Avengers: Age of Ultron.

The Entertainment Weekly reports that the good guys are tired, S.H.I.E.L.D. has been destroyed, and when trouble comes knocking, who is the earth to turn to? Can you give up being a hero? Or in the case of Avengers, can they give up on being Earth's saviours?

Replying to the website, Robert Downey Jr said, "It's also about recognising limitations. The downside of self-sacrifice is that if you make it back, you've been out there on the spit and you've been turned a couple times and you feel a little burned and traumatised."

For just such a situation, Downey Jr's Tony Stark has come up with a plan in the Avengers sequel. He doesn't want to get back in the Iron Man suit so he devises Ultron, a self-aware, self-teaching, artificial intelligence designed to help assess threats, and direct Stark's Iron Legion of drones to battle evildoers instead.

Not only will this give Stark so much more time with Pepper Potts, it will also let Captain America, Thor, Black Widow, Hawkeye, and the Hulk to get some free time.

However, Ultron has some ideas of its own. It decides that if Earth is to run smoothly, all it needs to do is get rid of people. Now, Ultron is not just another Robot, it is a programme which can upload itself anywhere and vanish into the cloud. And it is self replicating.

Considering these are just the first few scenes of the film, we are all in for a rocking time. The film releases early next year.
