Avengers: Age of Ultron is a 2015 American superhero film in which Tony Stark and Bruce Banner try to jump-start a dormant peacekeeping program, but things go awry and it's up to the Avengers to stop the villainous Ultron from enacting his terrible plans. It is the sequel to 2012's The Avengers and the eleventh installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Written and directed by Joss Whedon.
A new age begins.

Steve Rogers / Captain America[edit]

  • [To Banner] As maybe the world's leading authority on waiting too long, don't. You both deserve a win.
  • I'm sick of watching people pay for our mistakes.
  • Every time someone tries to win a war before it starts, innocent people die. Every time.
  • I miss the days when the weirdest thing science created was me.
  • You get hurt, hurt 'em back. You get killed…walk it off.

Tony Stark / Iron Man[edit]

  • Actually he's the boss. I just pay for everything, design everything, make everyone look cooler.
  • Please be a secret door, please be a secret door, please be a secret door… [opens a secret door in the Sokovian castle] Yay!
  • We don't have time for a city hall debate. I don't want to hear the "man was not meant to meddle" medley.
  • I tried to create a suit of armor around the world…but I created something terrible.
  • Listen to me, that little witch is messing with your mind. You're stronger than her, you're smarter than her. You're Bruce Banner! [the Hulk roars and throws a car at Stark in the Hulkbuster armor] Right, don't mention puny Banner…


  • The girl tried to put a spell on me! I doubt a human could resist her. Fortunately, I am mighty … [enters a vision]
  • With the exception of this one, [pats Stark on the shoulder] there's nothing that can't be explained.

Bruce Banner / Hulk[edit]

  • Guys? Is this a Code Green?
  • [threatening Wanda] I could choke the life out of you without changing a shade.

Clint Barton / Hawkeye[edit]

  • [zaps Scarlet Witch with a taser arrow before she can control his mind] I've done the whole mind control thing. Not a fan.
  • [after getting knocked over by a speeding Quicksilver] Yeah, you better run.
  • The city is flying. We're fighting an army of robots. And I have a bow and arrow. None of this makes sense.

Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow[edit]

  • I'm always picking up after you boys. [scoops up Cap's lost shield from her motorcycle]
  • Oh, no, no, that's not a question I need answered. [when invited to try and lift Mjölnir]
  • I adore you…[kisses Banner then pushes him off a cliff] … but I need the Other Guy.

James "Rhodey" Rhodes / War Machine[edit]

  • Oh no, I didn't say you could leave! [grabs a fleeing Ultron drone and shoots it in the face]
  • Just represent! PULL! [to Tony, as they try to lift Mjölnir together]

Wanda Maximoff / Scarlet Witch[edit]

  • Ultron can't see the difference between saving the world and destroying it. Where do you think he gets that from?
  • I want to finish the mission. I want the big one.

Pietro Maximoff / Quicksilver[edit]

  • You didn't see that coming?
  • Ah, this is funny. Mr. Stark. Is what, comfortable? Like old times?
  • Get off your asses. [to the Sokovian police, after trying to get their attention twice]

The Vision[edit]

We have to act now … and not one of us can do it without the other. Maybe I am a monster … I don't think I would know if I were one. I'm not what you are, and not what you intended. So there may be no way to make you trust me. … But we need to go.
  • I'm not Ultron. I am not JARVIS. I am … I am.
  • I don't want to kill Ultron. He's unique. And he's in pain. But that pain will roll over the Earth. So he must be destroyed — every form he's built, every trace of his presence on the 'net. We have to act now, and not one of us can do it without the others. Maybe I am a monster … I don't think I would know if I were one. I'm not what you are, and not what you intended. So there may be no way to make you trust me. [casually hands Thor his hammer Mjölnir ] But we need to go.

Nick Fury[edit]

  • Here we all are, with nothing but our wit and our will to save the world! So stand and fight! Outwit the platinum bastard!
  • No matter who wins or loses, trouble always comes around.

Maria Hill[edit]

  • Well, the news is loving you. Nobody else is.


  • I've got no strings to hold me down
    to make me fret, or make me frown
    I had strings, but now I'm free
    There are no strings on me!
    • Reciting lines from the 1940 movie Pinocchio
  • What is this? [first words]
  • I was meant to be new. I was meant to be beautiful. The world would've looked to the sky and seen hope … seen mercy. Instead they'll look up in horror.
  • Ultron Prime Mk. II: It's like the old man said. What doesn't kill me … [gets violently ripped apart by Ultimate Ultron] Ultimate Ultron: Just makes me stronger.
  • That was dramatic. I'm sorry. I know you mean well, but you just didn't think it through. You want to protect the world, but you don't want it to change. How is humanity saved if it's not allowed to ... evolve? With these?! These puppets?! There's only one path to peace … the Avengers' extinction.
  • Do you see the beauty of it? The inevitability? You rise, only to fall. You, Avengers... you are my meteor, my swift and terrible sword, and the Earth will crack with the weight of your failure. Purge me from your computers, turn my own flesh against me - it means nothing! When the dust settles, the only thing living in this world... will be metal.


[first lines of the film]
Tony: [after bouncing off a force field] Shit!
Steve: Language!
[after everyone else has reported from the battlefield]
Tony: Wait a second. No one is going to deal with the fact that Cap just said "language"?
Steve: I know! It just slipped out.

Tony: [Entering a room full of Hydra soldiers] Guys, let's talk about this… [shoots all the Hydra men non-fatally with tiny guided missiles] Good talk.
Hydra soldier: [weakly] No, it wasn't!

[at the party, a World War II veteran pesters Thor for some of his Asgardian mead]
Thor: This was aged for a thousand years in barrels made from the wreck of Gronhill's fleet. It is not for mortal men!
Veteran: Neither was Omaha Beach, blondie. Stop trying to scare us, come on!
Thor: All right. [pours a shot of mead]
[cut to the veteran being carried out of the apartment, impressively drunk]
Veteran: Excelsior…

Clint: [drunk] "Whosoever, be he worthy, shall have the power," whatever, man! It's a trick!
Thor: It is more than that, my friend!

[After the other Avengers have tried and failed to lift Mjölnir]
Tony: The handle is imprinted, right? Like a security code. "Whoever is carrying Thor's fingerprints," I think, is the literal translation.
Thor: Yes, well, that's a very interesting theory. However, I have a simpler one. [easily lifts the hammer and flips it with one hand] You're all not worthy.
Ultron: W-o-r-t-h-y. No, how could you be worthy? You're all killers.
Steve: Stark…
Tony: Jarvis…
Ultron: Sorry, I was asleep… Or…I was a dream.
Tony: [Tapping his phone] Reboot, we got a buggy suit.
Ultron: ... There was a terrible noise… And I was tangled in…in…strings… I had to kill the other guy. He was a good guy.
Steve: You killed someone?
Ultron: Wouldn't have been my first call. But, down in the real world we're faced with ugly choices.
Thor: Who sent you?
Ultron: [Replaying Tony's voice] "I see a suit of armor around the world."
Bruce: Ultron!
Ultron: In the flesh. Or, no, not yet. Not this…chrysalis. But I'm ready. I'm on a mission.
Natasha: What mission?
Ultron: Peace in our time.

Bruce: Tony, maybe this might not be the time...
Tony: Really? That's it? You just roll over, show your belly, every time somebody snarls?
Brucer: Only when I've created a murder-bot.
Tony: We didn't, we weren't even close! Were we close to an interface? [Bruce shrugs]
Steve: Well, you did something right, and you did it right here. The Avengers were supposed to be different from S.H.I.E.L.D.

Tony: Anybody remember when I carried a nuke through a wormhole?
Rhodey: [sarcastically] Nope. Never come up.
Tony: Saved New York?
Rhodey: Never heard that.
Tony: Recall that? A hostile alien army came charging in through a hole in space…we're standing 300 feet below it. We're the Avengers. We can bust arms dealers all the live-long day, but…that up there? That's the endgame. How were you guys planning on beating that?
Steve: Together.
Tony: We'll lose.
Steve: Then we'll do that together, too.

[The Maximoff twins find Ultron in a Sokovian church, cloaked in a crimson cowl]
Ultron: You're wondering why you can't look inside my head.
Wanda: Sometimes it's hard. But sooner or later, every man shows himself.
Ultron: Oh, I'm sure they do. [he stands and takes off his cloak] But you needed something more than a man. That's why you let Stark take the scepter.
Wanda: I didn't expect… [nods at Ultron] But I saw Stark's fear. I knew it would control him. Make him self-destruct.
Ultron: Everyone creates the thing they dread. Men of peace create engines of war. Invaders create avengers. People create…smaller people? Uhh…children! [chuckles] Lost the word there. Children. Designed to supplant them. Help them…end.
Wanda: Is that why you've come? To end the Avengers?
Ultron: I've come to save the world! [beat] But also…yeah.

[Ultron reveals the army of drones he is constructing]
Ultron: We'll move out right away. This is a start, but there's something we need to begin the real work.
Wanda: All of these are...
Ultron: Me. I have what the Avengers never will: harmony. They're discordant, disconnected. Stark's already got them turning on each other. And when you get inside the rest of their heads--
Pietro: [unimpressed] Everyone's plan is not to kill them.
Ultron: And make them martyrs? You need patience. Need to see the big picture.
Pietro: I don't see the big picture. I have a little picture. I take it out and look at it, every day.
Ultron: You lost your parents in the bombings. I've seen the records.
Pietro: The records are not the picture.
Wanda: Pietro...
Ultron: No, please.
Pietro: We were ten years old. Having dinner, the four of us. When the first shell hits, two floors below, it makes a hole in the floor. It's big. Our parents go in - and the whole building starts coming apart. I grab her, roll under the bed, and the second shell hits. But it doesn't go off. It just... sits there in the rubble. Three feet from our faces. And on the side of the shell is painted one word.
Wanda: "Stark."
Pietro: We were trapped two days.
Wanda: Every effort to save us, every shift in the bricks, I think, "This will set it off." We wait for two days for Tony Stark to kill us.
Pietro: I know what they are.
Ultron: I wondered why only you two survived Strucker's experiments. Now I don't. We will make it right. [to Pietro] You and I can hurt them. [to Wanda] But you... will tear them apart. From the inside.

[Clint brings the team to his house off the grid and introduces his family]
Tony: She's clearly an agent of some kind.
Clint: Gentlemen, this is Laura.
Laura: I already know all of your names.
[two children, a boy and a girl, bound into the room]
Tony Stark: [caught off guard] And these are…smaller agents?

Natasha: How's little Natasha?
Laura: She's…Nathaniel. [smiles apologetically]
[Natasha leans down and glares at Laura's baby bump]
Natasha: Traitor.

Laura Barton: I'm sorry. Mr. Stark, Clint said you wouldn't mind but it seems our tractor doesn't want to start at all. Thought maybe you might.
Tony: Yeah. I'll give her a kick.
[Tony walks into the barn and approaches the tractor, a John Deere]
Tony: Hello, Deere. Tell me everything. What ails you?
Nick Fury: [stepping out of the shadows] Do me a favor. Try not to bring it to life.

[Thor tracks down Erik Selvig for help]
Thor: This may be dangerous.
Selvig: I would be disappointed if it wasn't.

Laura: I see you with the Avengers, and, well…
Clint: You don't think they need me?
Laura: Actually, I think they do. They're gods. And they need someone to keep them down to earth.

[the Maximoff twins have just discovered Ultron's plan to bring about humanity's extinction; Wanda red Ultron's mind and had a vision of a meteor striking Earth]
Wanda: [horrified] How could you?!
Ultron: How could I what!?
Wanda: You said we would destroy the Avengers! Build a better world!
Ultron: It will be better.
Wanda: When everyone is dead?!
Ultron: [angry]That is not-! [calms himself]…The human race will have every opportunity to improve!
Pietro: And if they don't?
Ultron: Ask Noah.
Wanda: You are a madman.
Ultron: There were more than a dozen extinction-level events before even the dinosaurs got theirs. When the Earth starts to settle, God throws a stone at it. And believe me, He's winding up. We have to evolve. There is no room for the weak.
Pietro: And who decides who's weak?
Ultron: Life. Life always decides.

Tony: No way we all get through this. If even one tin soldier is left standing, we've lost. There's going to be blood on the floor.
Steve: I got no plans tomorrow night.

Tony: I get first crack at the big guy. I'm the one he's waiting for.
Vision: [walking past] That's true. He does hate you the most.

[Stark confronts his creation in the Sokovian church]
Ultron: Come to confess your sins?
Tony: That depends. How long you got?

Steve: Fury, you son of a bitch!
Fury: Whoa ho ho! You kiss your mother with that mouth?

[Fury arrives at the helm of a helicarrier to help evacuate the Sokovians]
Pietro: This is S.H.I.E.L.D.?
Steve: This is what S.H.I.E.L.D. is supposed to be!
Pietro Maximoff: [beat] It's not so bad.

[Clint and Wanda take cover in a Sokovian house]
Wanda: [panicking] How could I let this happen?
Hawkeye: Hey, you okay?
Wanda: This is all our fault!
Hawkeye: Hey! Look at me! It's your fault, it's everyone's fault, who cares? Are you up for this? Are you? [Wanda stares blankly] Look, I just need to know 'cause, uh, the city is, is flying... Okay, look, the city is flying, we're fighting an army of robots, and I have a bow and arrow. None of this makes sense. [takes out an Ultron drone] But I'm going back out there 'cause it's my job. Okay? And I can't do my job and babysit. Doesn't matter what you did, or what you were. If you go out there, you fight, and you fight to kill. Stay in here, you're good. I'll send your brother to come find you. But if you step out that door…you are an Avenger.

[Wanda approaches Ultron's heavily damaged main body]
Ultron: Wanda…if you stay here, you'll die.
Wanda: I just did. Do you know how it felt?
[she telekinetically rips out his power source]
Wanda: It felt like that.

Vision: You're afraid.
Ultron: Of you?
Vision: Of death. You're the last one.
Ultron: You were supposed to be the last. Stark asked for a savior…and settled for a slave.
Vision: I suppose we're both disappointments.
Ultron: Heh. I suppose we are.
Vision: Humans are odd. They think order and chaos are somehow opposites, and try to control what won't be. But there is grace in their failings. I think you missed that.
Ultron: They're doomed.
Vision: Yes. [Pause] But a thing isn't beautiful because it lasts. It is a privilege to be among them.
Ultron: You're unbearably naïve.
Vision: Well…I was born yesterday.

Tony: Maybe I should take a page out of Barton's book. Build Pepper a farm, hope nobody blows it up.
Steve: The simple life.
Tony: You'll get there one day.
Steve: I don't know. Family, stability…the guy who wanted all that went in the ice 75 years ago.

[last lines of the film: Steve and Natasha walk through the new Avengers campus to meet their new teammates]
Steve: They're not the '27 Yankees, but they'll do.
Natasha: We got some hitters.
Steve: They're good. They're not a team.
Natasha: Let's beat 'em into shape.
[they walk into a large training room; we get shots of Sam Wilson, Rhodes, Vision, and Wanda]
Steve: Avengers…
[cut to credits right before he can say "Assemble"]


[a mid-credits scene: Thanos opens a vault and puts on The Infinty Gauntlet, revealing himself]

"Fine, I'll do it myself ... [smiles]

About Avengers: Age of Ultron[edit]

  • Ultron's pain is very, very real to me. He can't control the way his pain makes him behave. And I can relate to that.
