Was Avengers: Age Of Ultron Really a Failure?

What a curious age we live in that a movie that grossed $1.4 billion (so far) would be considered a disappointment. $1.4 billion. Wow. But that’s what Disney feels. Disney has reportedly had many issues with Marvel Entertainment CEO Isaac Perlmutter and the direction he is going in, so word is they have used Age of Ultron’s less than expected earnings, to them, as the final insult. Disney has under cut Marvel and taken over all film operations.

Did anybody really call this a failure? I'm pretty sure all people said was that it didn't live up to its predecessor.

Not really but I really don't think they should have added the Twins. It should have focused on Ultron and Ultron only to give him more screen time

Plus a little easter egg along the lines of "Where did the Ultron Program originally come from Stark?"...."Oh some old, SHIELD drop out called Pymm"

Yeah, I'm not afraid to see this movie for the failure that it is. It's really just a series of plug ins for upcoming films. Inhumans, Civil War, Black Panther, Thor Ragnarok, Infinity War, etc. etc. When these movies start to come out will anyone really care about Age of Ultron anymore?

It doesn't really develop any of the characters in any kind of interesting way (some of them actually regress). The villain is a total throwaway. There is all kinds of padding and bloat only to reach a climax that hardly caries any weight. The movie left very little of an impression on me and I don't think I would ever go out of my way to watch it again.
