According to VFX supervisor Ben Snow, the Hulk was remodelled to bear a closer resemblance to Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner). This was accomplished by programming a system of muscles over Ruffalo's existing muscles: "I don't want to come in and see a Hulk without muscles properly deforming. When you flex a muscle, it retains volume - it can get firmer, its shape will change. We were able to leverage the research so that in an action like a bending arm the muscle doesn't just squash, it actually changes shape. We ended up moving up towards a lot more physical and correct thing where you had a three-dimensional mesh driving a skin mesh that would slide in two dimensions and then there was a soft spring mechanism attaching those."

Jumping right in to the action, this is one heck of a thrill ride only slowing the pace for a few moments to give a little back story to several characters that have not had their own film, and the new characters. I enjoyed the fight scenes immensely, with one in particular that had me grinning like the Cheshire cat.
Fans of the Marvel movies will already know what to expect from Thor, Iron man and Captain America, and the real delight for me came from the new arrivals, especially Paul Bettany as Vision.
The Real highlight for me was the villain Ultron. The way he looks and moves combined with the amazing voice from James Spader gives Ultron real screen presence and a great sense of menace that sets it apart from other robots in film.
The only thing I would have changed in this movie was to give Anthony Mackie a bigger part in it because i really enjoyed his performance in Captain America: the Wintrr Soldier, and was disappointed not to have him alongside Chris Evans again where he seemed to fit perfectly in his previous appearance. Vastly enjoyable film for all except the art crowd.
