Ultimate Avengers 2: A Near Perfect Continuance

By: Da'Mon Guy

     Ultimate Avengers 2 is a pragmatic, invigorating continuance that creatively builds on the foundation of the adventures of The Ultimate Avengers. Ultimate Avengers 2 takes a real world approach on the world of comics and the use of its characters. The movie returns all of the original actors who voiced the first film. It features the voice talents of Justin Gross (Ultimate Avengers), Grey Delislie (Batman: Year One), Michael Masse (The Resident), Olivia D’Abo (Green Lantern: First Flight), Marc Worden (The Invincible Iron Man), Nan McNamara (Criminal Minds: TV show), Nolan North (Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths), Andre Ware (Hotel For Dogs), David Boat (Super Hero Squad: TV show), Fred Tatascoire (Tangled), and Jim Ward (Toy Story 3).

     Ultimate Avengers 2 (UA 2) is the direct to DVD follow up to the Marvel comics animated film Ultimate Avengers that premiered in 2006. This sequel debuted in the latter half of 2006. The film is based on The Ultimates, the same ground-breaking comic as the prior incarnation. The Ultimates were created for Marvel Comics by Mark Milar (writer) and Bryan Hitch (pencils). The Ultimates were originally developed with three reasons in mind. First, to re-introduce fans to the classic characters of the Avengers and to attract a new base of fans.

It was an updating of the characters in an attempt to draw a new younger fan base. The Ultimates were originally designed to be an anti-terrorist unit.
