Throughout the film, the Avengers face internal conflicts and struggles, including questioning their purpose and the consequences of their actions.

“Avengers: Age of Ultron” was a commercial success, grossing over $1.4 billion worldwide. Although it received generally positive reviews from critics and audiences alike, it also faced some criticism for its crowded narrative and character development challenges due to the large ensemble cast.

Despite the criticisms, the film remains a significant entry in the MCU, contributing to the ongoing success of Marvel’s interconnected cinematic universe and serving as a cornerstone for the future of superhero filmmaking.
