THE WRAP – Iron Man kick-started the Marvel Cinematic Universe as we know it, and now he may become responsible for wiping its stars off of the planet.

In a new synopsis for Avengers: Age of Ultron posted to the Disney fan site Stitch Kingdom, Marvel explains how Tony Stark’s good attentions go awry and lead to a battle to save the planet, which seems to constantly need saving. The outline also hints at characters played by Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlett Witch), Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Quicksilver) and Paul Bettany (Vision).

The film, of course, is a follow-up to the monster 2012 hit that made $1.52 billion worldwide, and returns not only the all-star cast of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, but also director Joss Whedon.

TheWrap has reached out to Disney in order to confirm the authenticity of the synopsis below:

Marvel Studios presents Avengers: Age of Ultron, the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time. When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.

Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Robert Downey Jr., who returns as Iron Man, along with Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk. Together with Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, and with the additional support of Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill, the team must reassemble to defeat James Spader as Ultron, a terrifying technological villain hell-bent on human extinction. Along the way, they confront two mysterious and powerful newcomers, Wanda Maximoff, played by Elizabeth Olsen, and Pietro Maximoff, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and meet an old friend in a new form when Paul Bettany becomes Vision.
