ScreenCrush : Do you think Thanos will get his hands on the Mind Stone in Infinity War?

Art Of Life : Dude it makes me sad that the movie isnt as well developed as your analysis makes it sound. If the care was put to make these important themes and details shine as brightly as you talk about them, Marvel would be pumping out *masterpieces*

Kay Jay : Wow! This guy changed my perception of this movie. So deep.

Haivoxx : You didn’t explain the mind stone tho

dimitreze : 3:11 wrong his nightmare is not having any more war to fight, thus becoming useless

Shione Cooper : *LMAO loved your humor in this one*

Raghu Seetharaman : The scene with Proxima Midnight trying to extract the mind stone in the very first teaser was crazy. In that same scene Scarlet Witch and Nomad will save Vision.

DeKuTree : I love Hawkeye he’s my favourite avenger

LebronZo “Kingzmania” Kingram : Definitely underrated as so many aspects of the story went over people’s heads. The film is even stronger because the payoffs in the films that followed the plot threads set up in this one

Analisse Casado : great video Ryan. Age of Ultron was great. it was the first MCU movie i bought. now i have almost all of them.

Aryan Vyas : this actually makes me want to watch age of ultron again! although I didn't find it to be much impacting as other marvel films, of course it was really entertaining and still a good film.

Fernando Mireles lll : To me I feel like Ultron is a underrated villain in the MCU he has this philosophical plan to end things with glory like he feels as if he’s a god using quotes from the Bible and references

Antonio Soto : I enjoy AoU, despite it's shortcomings. This video made me appreciate it more.

The Once and Future Nerd : Now I just love this movie even more.

Nicolas Salamanca : Although you barely even mentioned the Mind Stone your analysis of AoU made me love the movie even more

Dark Samus : i think avengers age of Ultron was good but probably doesn’t hold up now.

Richard Japa : This video makes me to rewatch age of ultron

Abhinav Gopalam : Wow after this I feel there lot to learn from MCU ANYONE LIKE ME ....??

Tryden D'Souza : It's a stone with a mind of its own..

Jon Targaryen : This video changed my whole perception of the movie and it's so much deeper than everyone thinks. Age of Ultron gets alot of slack but after this video i definitely think it's underrated.

Sammy Lane : Nearly 5 yrs later, I still do wish that they had let the writers wirte in the final script that Wanda enrages Hulk to the point where Ultron is the lesser enemy and Hulk is more so the problem so the MCU could do a Planet Hulk in Thor 3 much better then what we got. What we got was fun but it was not what I wanted...I wanted THE Planet Hulk dark tone.

Etriuswimbleton : Ummm free will is an illusion though. Libertarian free will I mean (the ability to do things differently regardless of the state of mind amd body)

Adam Grela : Ur supposed to talk bout the stone not the plot of avengers

skrrt skrrt : Yeah but that didn't answer my question

Péter Borszéki : underrated. i think it was better than the first one

Intenseowl125 : Imo Age of ultron is great movie and underrated

Railshot01 : I'm enjoying this series. Reality stone next please.

Chris Johnson : Definitely with flaws, but that could be said since it was a sequel to the biggest comic book movie of all time, overall a little underrated in my opinion.

Sammy Lane : Can you imagine HULK listening to either S.O.D. or Slipknot?? Haha!! He'd be raging out on his own mosh pit,haha!!

NATsoHIGH ! : I wonder if the Mind stone can take Wanda's powers? Or are they a permanent part of her now ?

Carson : DO TIME

Dark Samus : first comment👍

GoldenRod05 : 2

Kabir Roy : 3:11 ‘’choosing a life of fantasy would make him slave of fantasy and thereby surrendering free will..’’ Great words

Bill Scurry : I don't know what about the stones, but James Spader was off the CHAIN in this movie!

Tom Morgan : Ultron is actually my favourite Marvel movie, but I completely understand why a lot of people think it's a weak link. Thor's arc is nonsensical and jarring (not to mention jarring after Marvel gave up on what Ragnarok was supposed to be and gave it to Taika Waititi), but everything else is fantastic. The fight scenes are inventive, the characters are all at their best and the writing is incredibly fun. I get that people think it has too many quips, but if I'm walking into a Joss Whedon film I'm 100% on board for quip city. Ultron is an interesting villain too, even if his plan is a little generic and his motivation is equal parts murky and cliche. James Spader brings a gravitas to him that's utterly intoxicating to watch. His scene with Vision at the end might be one of my favourites in the MCU. Vision too is a fascinating character, far more compelling than Ultron and a well-earned role for Paul Bettany to thrive in. Overall - loved it.

Avinash Mahabirsingh : I always thought AOU was great, and truly scary, The Vision, more than Ultron, scares me. Because Ultron was the very definition of predictable. Vision, well, he's like a literal God, and for whatever reason, that God has chosen to play nice for the minute, Why? Well that's what's scary, Vision never explained why he didn't side with Ultron, "There's grace in their failings" is not a good enough excuse, The Nazi failed in a spectacular way, fighting right up until the enemy was at the gates, Does that justify the Nazi?! Not nearly all humans are deserving of being saved, and Vision, for whatever reason, has decided to undertake peacekeeping duties, without thinking about what he's protecting? His motives for helping us does no line up, and for that reason alone, he's scarier than Thanos.

ilyn Payne : ultron was made weak he was easily defeated thus the movie was soo boring

Tom Morgan : Lindsay Weir from Freks and Geeks? What I think you meant to say was Velma from the Scooby-Doo movies. Much more relatable.

Jonathan Herrera : I think we can disagree on the symbolism of captain americas vision. The pattern of the visions with the avengers are that they’re living their nightmares. Widow with the red room, tony losing his friends, Thor destroying his own people and such. Captain America’s vision was “the wars over Steve, we can go home.” Caps fear is that war will end, and his use won’t be needed. Which is why he was not able to pick up the hammer. He craves war no matter how long he fights to end it. That’s just the theory I agree with. What do y’all think?

Julie Lino : This may movie may be underrated based on your interpretation

Papajcina ••• : I'd say the mind stone had a big effect in Avengers 1. In the scene where they're fighting each other, where Banner says "We're not a tean we're a chemcial mixture that creates chaos", that shot ends with the camera zooming on the scepter, going behind it and flipping the shot upside down, implying effect on the Avengers. So it's the stone that further divides the team with it's powers. Tony touches his forehead and looks like he just woke up a couple of times in those scenes. Like he's unwilling snapping in and out of it's grasp. Same for Banner he unwillingly grabs the scepter and everybody snaps back to reality

Trillo 333 : Not bad, but by only briefly mentioning it's first use, you kind of tipped the scale away from the Mind Stone's other obvious meaning, the ability to create good and bad FOR others. Yes, it's all about the "other's" choice to accept their mindset or not, but the wielder can do just as much good as harm using the stone. Granted, that's demonstrated more in the comics than the movies, but I'm hoping that the power for good gets played in Infinity War!

Kdream's Cosmos : Can anybody tell me how the mind stone will fit in the middle of gauntlet, because i always thought the soul stone be there, but in some toys they say mind stone be there, it is so small

i think i'm a meanie : The scene where Tony Stark saw his fears about the death of the Avengers in Age of Iltron and seeing Hulk twitching a little until he dies threatens my childhood

mlasko74 : So Thanos just gave Loki an infinity stone?

U mom gay : I thought those visions represents the three wise monkeys Sees no evil-because heimdall's eyes are blind to see nothing Hears no evil-steve rogers' vision/fantasy suddenly becomes quiet Speaks no evil- in natasha's vision you can see two children who doesnt have mouth

OliversMovies : Sounds like you're reaching a bit to tie everything to the stones. Captain America's vision is of the war ending because that is what he ultimately fears. Without war, Captain America doesn't have purpose. Those visions are all of fear, not "wish fulfillment." You took the most interesting part of the movie and made it about wanting a dance...

Resention : All I want to know is - why was the Mind Stone suddenly much bigger when Thanos ripped it out of Vision's head? We've seen its size in Age of Ultron, and it's very small. This was never explained. D:

Chris Turner : Why on earth did thanos give Loki the mind stone in the form of the sceptre in the first avengers???
