As you know, Joss Whedon is currently in the process developing Avengers: Age of Ultron, and with a track record like his, I have no doubt it's going to be awesome. In a recent interview with EW, the director discussed some of the issues he had with his first Avengers film and how it has impacted what he's doing for Age of Ultron. We also got some possible plot information for the movie! Here's what he said,
“When I think of a great film, I think of something that’s either structured so perfectly like The Matrix or made so lovingly like The Godfather Part II. There was haphazardness in the way it comes together—not just the people, but the scenes. I don’t think you’d look at it and go, ‘This is a model of perfect structure.’ You’d go, ‘This is working.’ I like it. I’m proud of it and I like its imperfections. The thing I cared most about—making a summer movie like the ones from my childhood—is the thing that I pulled off.”
It's not every day that a director will talk openly about his work, and point out the mistakes he made. He goes on to discuss how that will influence the sequel,
“[With Age of Ultron,] I want to be clearer about how I engage the audience, and where I take them. I want more control visually, more time to prep it. Not that I didn’t dictate every shot—I did. But there’s only so much you can do when you’re making a summer film when the ball is already rolling as fast as it was when I got in. Why do it again if you can’t do it better?”
As for the plot synopsis that hit the net, it sounds a lot different from what we've been hearing, but it also makes sense. This is what popped up on the official IMDB page,
As the US Government creates a force known as Ultron, The Avengers are told they are not needed any longer. But when Ultron turns against Humanity, it’s time for The Avengers to assemble yet again for their most dangerous challenge ever.
When it comes to IMDB you never really know whether it's official or not, so I wouldn't take it as fact now. But of course there could be some truth to it. The fact of the matter is I can see something like this happening in the sequel. I guess there's a big chance that Tony Stark won't have anything to do with the creation of Ultron, maybe... just maybe, Jarvis and Ultron will fight each other in the movie, which you have to admit would be really cool. Two artificial intelligences in a battle to the death. With the help of The Avengers, of course. That's just my little hope and wish.
What do you think about the possible plot information? Is that a direction you would like to see the story go?
