STORY: The caped crusaders are back in force in “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” but this time, the evil they battle is bringing them face to face with the darker consequences of being a super hero.

“Age of Ultron,” the sequel to Walt Disney Co’s 2012 Marvel blockbuster “Avengers” and out in U.S. theaters on Friday, will see its star-studded super hero ensemble – Iron Man, Thor, Black Widow, Captain America, The Hulk and Hawkeye – tackle their own fears.

In “Age of Ultron,” Marvel’s super hero worlds come crashing together as the super heroes tackle a complex villain in Ultron (James Spader), spawned out of artificial intelligence and evolving into a megalomaniac.

With help from twins Pietro (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), known as Quicksilver for his super speed, and Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen), the Scarlet Witch with thought-altering magic powers, Ultron makes the Avengers at times turn on themselves.

“Avengers” became the third-highest grossing film of all-time, and “Age of Ultron,” made for $250 million, is expected to match, and possibly surpass, its predecessor’s $1.5 billion take at the global box office.

Ahead of its U.S. debut on Friday, “Age of Ultron” amassed $201.2 million across 44 countries, outpacing its predecessor’s opening weekend take.
