Aaron Taylor-Johnson's favorite superhero amongst the Avengers is Chris Hemsworth. Taylor-Johnson was impressed by Hemsworth, saying, "The only one who has an otherworldly superhero physique is Hemsworth. The size of his arms, is like the size of my thighs. Just to be an actor and transform your physique and body to that level, he's essentially a god. Everyone in the cast is charming and brilliant, but you look around the room and you go 'that guy is definitely the superhero.'" See more »
During the after party battle in the Avengers building, several of the non-powered Avengers ( War Machine, Iron Man and Hawkeye) are shown undergoing impact that should have either severely injured or killed them. War Machine (Rhodes) is shown being thrown through a plate glass 15-20 feet away and then falling an additional 20-30 to a concrete deck below. Iron Man (Tony Stark) is shown landing on a concrete staircase in manner that demonstrated he didn't prepare for the fall beforehand. Both should have been seriously injured or even killed from their impacts and yet later are shown only having lacerations and bruises to show for their troubles. See more »

This movie takes a long time to gain any steam, with a lot of all talk and no action in the first half of the movie. There is also little suspense and intrigue - just the superheroes pondering and conjuring their next mission, with Tony Stark and Bruce Banner creating a project called Ultron to act as a peacekeeping program serving as the movie's backdrop.
The Ultron project goes horribly wrong and the machine takes a mind of its own, threatening to rid the world of humans in attempts to "save the world" - something we've heard before.
We get to see action slowly trickle in during the second half of the movie slowly - lots of crazy CGI action during the rumbling climax. This film's plot sets the story for the next film, Captain America: Civil War, in motion. However, I thought this film overall lacked the entertainment value due to its extremely slow plot and lackluster story.
