It follows the hugely successful first film, reuniting stars including Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man and Chris Hemsworth as Thor.

Marvel villain Ultron was a rebellious robot, which makes an android attack on the Avengers.

Whedon announced the title by showing a trailer featuring audio clips from the first film along with a piece of metal that formed on the screen to then reveal the head of the robotic villain Ultron. The trailer closed with the reveal of the title.

The trailer was introduced by actor Tom Hiddleston, who played villain Loki in the first Avengers film – in full costume, according to Hollywood Reporter.

Hiddleston stayed in character, making his speech and rallying members of the audience as they chanted the villain’s name.

It holds conventions and events featuring comics and related popular artforms – not least the films featuring comic-book characters and computer games.

The film will hit big screens on May 1, 2015.
