Avengers: Age of Ultron
Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk, the Black Widow, and Hawkeye. What more do you need to know? The Avengers are back in another superhero movie that will surely be even better than the first one.
This time, when Tony Stark (Iron Man) tries to start a program for peace, everything goes wrong. It’s up to the Avengers to save the world again. But now they have to fight Ultron, a robot who wants to kill all humans. Who do you think will win this time?
Brian is excited to see “Avengers: Age of Ultron,“ and wants Kellie to go with him. Find out who will buy the popcorn in today’s English lesson about a new superhero movie.
Brian: Kellie, I’m really excited about the new “Avengers“ movie.
Kellie: Oh, you are? Yeah, that’s one of those new superhero movies. Is that right?
Brian: Yes, it is a Marvel superhero movie. I’m kind of a superfan.
Kellie: Oh really, Marvel? I guess people who are into that genre really know a lot about it. But I’m afraid I don’t know anything about superhero movies.
Brian: Oh, they’re so good. It’s not just an action movie. It’s really about the characters and that’s what’s fun. And the characters happen to have ridiculous super powers. I’ve been a fan since it happened, and now that they’re all connected, I’m really in it for the long haul.
Kellie: So, is this based on a comic book?
Brian: Yeah, the Avengers is an old Marvel comic. And it actually brought together a lot of the other comic book characters, like Captain America and Thor. They all have their own comics and their own movies. But this is a big deal because they’re all going to be in one movie together.
Kellie: I understand. Maybe I’ll check it out this time.
Brian: Great. I’ll buy the popcorn.
Kellie: Okay. Sounds good.
