Ultron by MattiasFahlberg Ultron by MattiasFahlberg

I'm back again with yet another robot illustration/concept. This time I wanted to create a concept for how Ultron might look in the next Avengers movie. This is just from my imagination and I really don't have any proof about anything, haha. :p
My ideas behind the concept:
What do we know about the next Avengers movie? Well; we know that Ultron will most likely be the main  villain. I originally thought that Thanos would be the bad guy but it doesn't seem that way. According to Joss Whedon, Ultron isn't going to be created by Hank Pym (Ant Man) as is in the comics. This makes me believe that Ultron, in this movie, will be created by Tony Stark. I'm thinking that Jarvis will be Tony's replacement in the Iron Man suit 'cause it didn't seem like Tony, as of the end of Iron Man 3, wanted to be Iron Man any more. Since Jarvis is an AI, I find it very likely that he will go rouge and ultimately become Ultron. On his mission to restore order to chaos for the good of humanity, he will come to the conclusion that the best way of saving mankind is by destroying it. This will force Tony out of retirement and back into the Avengers.
The Concept:
I'm thinking that Ultron will be in a pimped out Iron Man suit with lots of gadgets etc. That's why I decided to base him on just that; an Iron Man suit. I wanted to keep some of the traditional elements of Ultron from the comics though, so I designed the suit to also resemble the original version of him; especially with the helmet. In the comics Ultron is very shiny and almost seems to have the same surface of his body as the Silver Surfer. That, in my opinion, would look horrible on screen so I decided to scrap all the sparkle and bling, keeping only some areas shiny. The rest of him has more of a matte, brushed metal-ish finish. I kept the design of the armor bulky enough to endure a good beating, but slim enough for him to be agile.

I hope you guys enjoy! Please leave a comment if you like! <3

personally I would love to see ultron be a separate creation if for no reason other than jarvis to eventually develop into the vision.

Thank you! :D

Your idea of the concept is nice, but you're missing out some details.

The end scene of the Avengers with Thanos, is a cosmic threat, this is actually the villain for Guardians Of The Galaxy (this is referenced "cosmic threats" for the description of Guardians Of The Galaxy movie plot).

In Iron Man 3, the kid that Tony Stark meets tells Tony that he could add these gadgets into his armour that would make him become stealthy, which Tony Stark says "You know what? That's not a bad idea". Unfortunately we don't see the stealth mode for the rest of the movie.

At the end of Iron Man 3, Tony destroys all of his suits, and has surgery which removes his chest reactor (so Iron Man no longer exists).

However, one suit survived. The Iron Patriot suit.

So I believe that in the Avengers 2, the Iron Patriot suit becomes Ultron, which Jarvis turns against everyone and becomes evil (perhaps the government gave Jarvis more intelligence and a mind of its own in an attempt to create a new Iron Man which Tony Stark destroyed in Iron Man 3).

Therefore, the Avengers Assemble again, and Tony Stark creates the Stealth suit (referenced in Iron Man 3) which is Black and Gold, and because Tony Stark had surgery, the suit uses more power now that it doesn't act as a life support machine.

I may be completely wrong, but that would explain all of the loose ends.

I love this - love the concept and the idea - makes a lot of sense too - I mean a self powered suit with its own AI? Kind of ego thing Tony would pursue.

I agree with the rejection of the original idea - a body like Silver Surfer? No - this is better.

There is a sense of menace with this one, and I love the red highlights.

I hope that the studios go your way; but knowing power hungry execs....

Brilliant sir :D
