Avengers: Age of Ultron will be “darker” and “weirder” than a predecessor.
So pronounced Joss Whedon, who returned to approach a supplement to 2012′s The Avengers. During an disdainful set revisit final summer, E! News’ Alicia Quarles spoke to a filmmaker about a Marvel Studios supplement and a ever-growing expel of characters.
“We’ve increasing a series of characters,” Whedon said, “not since we wish to chuck some-more things opposite a wall, though since we wish to be means to demeanour debate characters in a opposite light and arrange of boost or taste and do opposite things in opposite places and get some-more perspectives.”
The supplement brings behind 2012′s star-studded cast, including Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk and Cobie Smulders as representative Maria Hill.
Avengers: Age of Ultron also brings behind fan favorites Hayley Atwell (Peggy Carter), Don Cheadle (James “Rhodey” Rhodes/War Machine), Idris Elba (Heimdall), Anthony Mackie (Sam Wilson/Falcon) and Stellan Skarsgård (Erik Selvig).
Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson appear in Avengers: Age of Ultron as twins Wanda Maximoff and Pietro Maximoff, a.k.a Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver. When a time came to expel a technological apprehension Ultron, Whedon immediately wanted James Spader. “It’s one of a reasons we adore operative during Marvel. ‘I consider we know accurately who needs to play this part: Somebody who can give we that good drudge voice and afterwards go off on a rip in a approach that we never approaching and be unequivocally funny.’”
Luckily, Marvel Studios was on house with Whedon’s tip choice.
“Spader, they’re like, ‘Oh, yeah! We adore him! Great!’” he said. “Like, ‘Aren’t we going to fight? You’re a studio! Don’t we fight?’”
Wrangling such a vast expel valid to be formidable during times.
“The pretence is to scream during them, though usually when they’re all together. When they’re all together it’s only a small formidable to get things finished since they’re enjoying any other so much. ‘You’re ostensible to be fighting. You’re ostensible to be indignant during any other. Stop laughing,’” Whedon recalled. “But a fact of a matter is, they come in, they know their words, they have a perspective, they work unequivocally hard, they honour any other…it’s a flattering peaceful environment, notwithstanding my best efforts.”
After The Avengers was expelled in 2012, it became a third top grossing film of all time, behind Avatar and Titanic, with $1.5 billion. There was vigour to replicate a success of that film with Avengers: Age of Ultron, of course, though Whedon didn’t let that impact his work.
“The foe that I’m in is with myself. Can we make a improved film? That is enormously cumbersome. we do not nap during night. we can’t try to replicate a success,” he told E! News. “I can try to remember what worked and do it again so that people do come in removing an Avengers movie. we don’t wish to pretence them. we don’t wish to do a attract and switch, though during a same time, all we wish to do is get some-more out of this than we got out of a initial one.”
