In Avengers: Age of Ultron, we see Ultron singing to the creepily altered tune of “I’ve Got No Strings” from the 1940 Disney movie, Pinocchio. This scene not only depicts Ultron’s resemblance to a freed puppet, but it also marks the beginning of the merger between Disney and Marvel Studios.
Age of Ultron was released in 2012 as the first MCU movie to be filmed under the Disney name. Since then, the Avengers, the Guardians, and most of the other on-screen Marvel characters have been under the rule of Walt Disney’s super company.
