How about that Avengers: Age of Ultron plot synopsis, eh? Shockingly generic? Yes it is. They might as well have said, “The Avengers are getting back together because the world is even more threatened this time, and you know you’re going to see it anyway you have your alarm set for May 2015 so why do you keep asking us for a plot synopsis?”

In other words, it’s an excellent synopsis that doesn’t give everything away or deliver pure fan service to the faithful. It’s also kind of pointless, so to make it more useful, let’s play Avengers: Age of Ultron Plot Synopsis Mad Libs.

Here’s how:

Choose a noun, a plural noun, the name of someone in the room, a verb that ends in S, the name of your favorite person, an adjective and one more noun.

Plug them (in order) into this handy be-underlined paragraph, and you’ve got the makings of your own superhero film!

When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant _________, things go awry and Earth’s ________, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, _______, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet ______ in the balance. As the villainous ______ emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his ______ plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique ________.

Here’s a sample created by me and Chris:

When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant popcorn , things go awry and Earth’s pencils, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Werner Herzog, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet swallows in the balance. As the villainous Jennifer emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his black plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique bicycle.

I’d probably watch that. Also, we’d run the actual synopsis, but you can pretty much fill in the blanks for yourself.
