One of the biggest victims of Avengers: Age of Ultron‘s overstuffed narrative was Thor. The god disappeared into a seemingly out-of-nowhere side quest that didn’t raise a whole lot of interest or make a whole lot of sense, raising the question of why the film bothered giving him a subplot at all.
The answer, as you may have already read, is that Thor was originally supposed to have a much meatier subplot to himself. Unfortunately, with the film threatening to go over the three-hour mark, something had to get cut, and that something was Thor. But thanks to the film’s upcoming Blu-ray release, we can finally see what we was missing in the film. Watch the Avengers Age of Ultron Thor deleted scene after the jump. Read More »

While Avengers: Age of Ultron isn’t completely devoid of humor, there’s not a whole lot of time for jokes when everyone’s too busy trying to save the world. The making of Avengers: Age of Ultron, on the other hand, looks like a much more lighthearted affair, full of jokes, screw-ups, and general silliness. Watch the Avengers: Age of Ultron gag reel after the jump. Read More »
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. Read More »
A bit of advice from Ghostbusters applies to many actors accepting gigs as superheroes: “When someone asks you if you’re a god, you say YES.” That’s pretty much Paul Bettany‘s recollection of getting the offer to play Vision in Avengers: Age of Ultron, as recounted in this excerpt from a new Vision featurette on the upcoming Blu-ray.
But there’s also a second piece of advice that applies here, too, as summed up nicely in Ben Affleck’s anecdote about having a Batman conversation with Christian Bale: “Make sure you can piss in that suit.”
It takes a lot of paint, fabric, and rubber to make a mere mortal look like a superhero. Those costumes aren’t always comfortable, but it’s easy to overlook that detail in the excitement of taking the role. Fortunately, the Vision makeup process was pretty brief. The suit was even water-cooled, leading Bettany to quip that “it’s a little like being inside a gin and tonic.”
Check out the Vision featurette excerpt below for a lot more. Read More »
