Joss Whedon famously shot the post-credits “shawarma” scene for The Avengers was shot after the film premiered, and in general the post-credits scene has become a mainstay of the Marvel movie experience. We’ve heard that no post-credits scene had yet been shot for Age of Ultron, and assumed that it might come about as the shawarma scene did, very late in the game.
Now Whedon says there’s no Age of Ultron post-credits scene at all. There will still be something during the credits, but if you’re not the type to enjoy sitting around until after the union logos and copyright notice scroll by, you can go home early this time. Read More »

In the past few weeks, we’ve seen lots of new footage from Avengers: Age of Ultron. However, only a few seconds of that has featured the latest character additions, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver. A new featurette changes that with many scenes from the movie featuring the new heroes, played by Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson. We see each of them at work, interacting with the Avengers and how they each change the Avengers as a team. It’s a pretty great little sneak at the Joss Whedon film, which will be out in just over a month.

Joss Whedon returns to direct the superpowered gang, including Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk, and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye.
In addition, the latest trailer offers a good look at some of the Avengers’ new friends and foes, including Paul Bettany as Vision. Watch the new Avengers Age of Ultron trailer after the jump.

Ant-Man is coming to the MCU this summer. So is Ultron. But unlike in the comics, where Ant-Man (specifically Hank Pym) created Ultron, the two don’t seem to have much to do with other in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Instead, Tony Stark will be the one responsible for bringing the killer robot to life.
Naturally, fans have been complaining to Joss Whedon about the major change in Ultron’s origin story, and now the Avengers: Age of Ultron director has a response for them: Blame Edgar Wright. Well, Wright and the fact that Whedon just couldn’t find a good way to fit in Hank Pym. Find out why there’s no Hank Pym in Avengers after the jump. Read More »

In the comic books, Ultron is all but unbeatable. He’s artificially intelligent and, in addition to being super strong, fast and all that good stuff, he can transfer his consciousness and recreate himself. (He’s also changed powers over the years too.) So just when you think he’s dead, bang, he’s back in another form. That’s a big problem for a superhero movie where the good guys kind of have to win, according to Joss Whedon.
In an interview from the set of Avengers: Age of Ultron, the writer/director of the superhero sequel talked about the fact Ultron is so powerful in the comics, he was forced to dial back his abilities for the movie world. He also discussed how introducing Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch into the film helped the title character. Read the Joss Whedon Avengers Age of Ultron quotes below. Read More »

Joss Whedon has spent most of the past several years building the Marvel Cinematic Universe, first with The Avengers, then with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and now Avengers: Age of Ultron. And he’s certainly done great work within that universe. But now he’s sounding ready to move on.
In a new interview, Whedon reveals a desire to create his own universe — maybe something like “turn-of-the-century female Batman,” or “Sam Fuller meets Edward Gorey.” Consider us sold. Read the Joss Whedon universe comments, plus his explanation of why he (probably) won’t direct Captain Marvel, after the jump. Read More »
