how it should have ended

Let’s be honest, this is how ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ should have ended

Sorry, but Ultron really did not make sense as a villain.

Sometimes, the “How It Should Have EndedYouTube videos are an affectionate joke at the expense of a movie you loved. Other times, they point out glaring flaws that you can’t unsee. Such is the case with the series’ take on Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Let’s face it: as a villain, Ultron did not make much sense. As an artificial intelligence with no attachment to his corporeal form, he was pretty much indestructible. He had the ability to “escape into the Internet” and control virtually any technology, but instead chose to inhabit an army of robot drones and start physical fights with the Avengers, who proceeded to fight back as if Ultron was just a big robot dude.

The movie (kind of) solved this plot hole by “trapping” Ultron in his android body, but it wasn’t really enough to hold things together.

So, if you’re wondering how Age of Ultron should have ended…Ultron should have won.
