Ultron, the villain in the upcoming movie, first appeared in the late '60s. The character, written by Roy Thomas and illustrated by John Buscema, appears to be something of a star in the fanboy world and elicited strong reactions in Comic-Con's infamous Hall H:

So the big announcement ... Avengers 2 has a title: Avengers: Age of Ultron. Guy behind me hit me as he screamed "ULTRON MOTHERFUCKER!"

Ultron was revived for a short 10-comic run, fittingly titled "Age of Ultron," which as released in March. Famed comics writer Brian Michael Bendis wrote the storyline. TheWrap notes that following the more recent Ultron storyline could mean the sequel charts a much darker path than the first (because apparently ruining most of a major city isn't gloomy enough).

"Age of Ultron" is set for a May 1, 2015 debut. The Marvel panel also featured appearances by the likes of Tom Hiddleston (in character as Loki), a "Thor: The Dark World" trailer and appearances from Marvel stars like "Captain America" lead Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson, Anthony Mackie, Cobie Smulders, Zoe Saldana, Benicio del Toro, Chris Pratt and more.

The clip starts out with Starlord (Pratt) being captured by some sort of alien authorities. "Who are you?" asks one. Then Pratt delivers a dramatic, "Starlord!" The alien says, "Who?"
