Avengers: Age of Ultron: The Incredible Hulk vs. Iron Man in Hulkbuster suit Mark Ruffalo Avengers 2 set interview

On June 12th 2014, I visited the London set of Avengers: Age of Ultron. Today we’ll be posting a couple of the interviews we conducted while on set. The second of which is with Mark Ruffalo, who is reprising his role as Bruce Banner, aka The Incredible Hulk. You can listen to or read the whole interview after the jump, but I wanted to lead off with Ruffalo’s explanation of how Hulk’s friction with Iron Man in The Avengers: Age of Ultron is a little bit like Cool Hand Luke:

It’s a little bit like Cool Hand Luke that way. You think you could beat me and then I’ll beat the crap out of you… and then I beat the crap out of him. [LAUGHS] It’s kinda’ like that, but not totally like that. It has a surprise — a little twist to it as well.

Avengers: Age of Ultron Robert Downey Jr Avengers 2 set interview

On June 12th 2014, I visited the London set of The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Today we’ll be posting a couple of the interviews we conducted while on set. The first is with Robert Downey Jr, who is reprising his role as Tony Stark, aka Iron Man. You can listen to or read the whole interview after the jump, but I wanted to lead off with Downey Jr’s explanation of why Avengers 2 won’t fall into the superhero/blockbuster formula of an action-heavy not-so-interesting third act:

There was a Rubik’s Cube to how to make these things have an Act Three — that you’re just going I really hope you like Acts One and Two because now we’ve just gotta do all this stuff. To me, and I think it was the same thing in Iron Man 3, Act Three was the strongest act. I think that this is really gunning for that sort of thing. Because I love movies. I love these kinds of movies. I feel like I’m just a very tolerant kind of consumer with these things, but I also feel like the half-life of — if you noticed just how flooded the market is becoming and likely to become potentially even more so. I think that there has to be a bit of a transcendence of formula. And so without giving too much away, and why I generally just stamped it when the first draft came in ‘cause I thought, “Oh wow, it didn’t fall into that trap.” And I read the last page and I got chills, for a reason I definitely can’t explain. [LAUGHTER] … This is gonna be very cool.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is a finely tuned machine. Projects and story arcs are mapped out years in advance, and casting choices are made to last.

Ultron / Dinobots

I feel for movie makers sometimes. It’s totally understandable that they’d want to keep certain juicy plot details under wraps, and it’s surely annoying to have to fend off prying fans who’d rather know everything right now. I don’t, however, feel bad enough for them to refrain from passing along some juicy hints when we get them.

Earlier this year, an anonymous source slipped that Dinobots would play a prominent role in Transformers 4. Nothing’s officially been confirmed, but star Mark Wahlberg‘s recent reaction when asked about the fan-favorite characters seems like a small hint.

Meanwhile, over in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, a casting call lends some credence to the popular theory that Tony Stark, not Hank Pym, will be the creator of Ultron in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Hit the jump to get the latest dirt on both rumors.
