Still, it’s worth the wait. The movie’s villain, Ultron, has finally been revealed, and he looks awesome. He is the anti-Transformer; instead of going the route that director Michael Bay and ILM went with their staggeringly complex robots, some of which bled into Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim, Ultron is a slick, modern throwback to science fiction serial villains of old.

One thing that always confuses me a bit, though — in every Marvel movie, reflective surfaces on costumes don’t photograph well.
