Regardless of your feelings about Avengers: Age of Ultron, seeing the process of creation for a movie like that one is always fascinating. With so many moving parts to juggle, from actors and their characters and storylines to locations, effects, and all the post-production details, there are innumerable tricks and secrets to learn.
Yesterday we saw an Age of Ultron featurette showing some of the creation of Vision; today we have three more. One explains the effects that brought some powers to life. Two others explore how James Spader interacted on set with other actors including Mark Ruffalo, Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson. (One neat bit: during takes, they had to use balls mounted a couple feet above Spader’s head as an eyeline for the giant Ultron.) Watch all three below, and prepare to Marvel at Mark Ruffalo’s continued astonishment at the particulars of his job.
Here are two videos looking pretty specifically James Spader, Ultron, and actors interacting with the character. My actual favorite line in here comes from Mark Ruffalo, who reflects on his motion-capture time with Spader in awed tones. “Look at you, Ruffalo,” he recalls, “you really pulled one over on the world.” Can’t argue with that.Cool Posts From Around the Web:
