Official Synopsis for Avengers: Age of Ultron

One of the most anticipated superhero movies of the next few years is Marvel's The Avengers: Age of Ultron, sequel to 2012's game-changing film The Avengers. We've known for some time that James Spader would be playing the fan-favorite villain, Ultron. We also knew that Paul Bettany (previously the voice of Tony Stark's AI system J.A.R.V.I.S.) would be bringing the superhero The Vision to life, as well that Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen would be playing the Marvel Cinematic Universe versions (separate from Fox's X-Men franchise) of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch

All of this, and some of the heavily rumored plot descriptions, have been stated in this new, official synopsis Marvel has put of for the film.  

"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."

 Like I said before, most of this synopsis simply restates what we already know, but what is most interesting is the part that says that there will be "uneasy alliances and unexpected action". We can guess that some of those "uneasy alliances" are with Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, but can we see more than just that? With the beginning sequence taking place in Wakanda, a lot of people are speculating that Black Panther could appear. Another persistent rumor is that Ms. Marvel will be in the film as well. While I don't entirely trust the credibility of these two rumors, I do think there will be a few big surprises come time the film comes out.  

It also says "unexpected action". We know there will be a fight between the Hulk and Iron Man in his Hulkbuster armor, but what unexpected action could we see? This is a lot more ambiguous than the first part of the sentence, in my opinion.

What do you think of the synopsis? Am I reading too much into it? Leave your thoughts in the comments section.
