We really shouldn't have to say this but, duh, SPOILERS AHEAD. Granted, given that scripts on blockbuster movies change, and there can be handful of iterations at any moment, and given that Joss Whedon himself has had to adjust course to tweak his movie for the ever-changing Marvel-verse, who knows if these plot details for "The Avengers: Age Of Ultron" are accurate. But, what are tentpole movies without rumors to consider?

We really shouldn't have to say this but, duh, SPOILERS AHEAD. Granted, given that scripts on blockbuster movies change, and there can be handful of iterations at any moment, and given that Joss Whedon himself has had to adjust course to tweak his movie for the ever-changing Marvel-verse, who knows if these plot details for "The Avengers: Age Of Ultron" are accurate. But, what are tentpole movies without rumors to consider?

And so, Latino Review report today on some story elements from 'Ultron,' with the added caveat they are from the opening 15-20 minutes of a movie that they say will likely break the two-hour mark. And the opening sequence is the highlight of these rumors. Apparently, it will pick up right where the post-credits scene from "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" left off, with The Avengers teaming up to fight Baron von Strucker, who has Quicksilver and Scarlett Witch by his side.

Anyway, Hulk's smashy-smash strength wins the day which leads to a party at Avengers Tower, where everyone tries to pick up Thor's hammer to no avail... except Captain America, who manages to move it just a little bit (in the comics he's able to wield it). Meanwhile, Bruce Banner and Black Widow will apparently have feelings for each other but Hulk is afraid his rage will be too much for her to handle. And speaking of love, Thor is now back on the market with Jane moving on (and we'd guess because Natalie Portman is done with comic book movies).

So in short, the opening is a big blockbuster spectacle (par for the course these days) followed by establishing where the characters are now in the story. Thoughts? You know where to go. "The Avengers: Age Of Ultron" drops on May 1, 2015.
