In a recent interview with Empire Magazine, Joss Whedon and Kevin Feige discussed certain aspects of Avengers: Age of Ultron. Whedon started out talking about the scope of the movie, saying, "It's more epic and in other ways it's more noirish and suspect and devious and specific. Ultron...he's got a touch of the apocalypse in him." Feige went on to elaborate on Ultron and his, army adding,
"Ultron was the villain Joss wanted, from midway through production on the first film, to have serious repercussions for The Avengers. We unveiled a poster here which is nothing but Ultron after Ultron after Ultron clawing at the beginning to defeat all of our Avengers. That's what a lot of this movie is about."
That's all the movie is about?! I'm sure there's more to it than that, but it definitely sounds like the Avengers are going to have their work cut out for them constantly battling Ultron and his army.
They went on to talk about the footage screened at Comic-Con back in July, which included an insanely cool shot of the Hulk battling Tony Stark in his Hulkbuster armor. In regard to that, Feige only said, "It's a bespoke suit. The back-up plan in case things go awry." Whedon, however, had a little bit more to say about it and the relationship between Stark and Bruce Banner.
"The Hulkbuster is from after my time [as a reader], but even I knew what a big deal it was. It makes sense because there's no one who can really go up against Hulk, but more importantly, those guys are best friends, so what that battle is and what it means is fascinating to me."
The stuff I saw from this movie simply blew me away, and it's going to be so cool to see the superhero gang back together again, fighting to save the world. There's no doubt that Iron Man battling the Hulk is going to be one of the most anticipated scenes in the movie.
