Joss Whedon is nearing the finishing line of “Avengers: Age Of Ultron” — which he told SFX (via Comic Book Movie) earlier this month is the “insane-o-stage” part of the process — but perhaps more importantly, he’s already watched a cut of the highly anticipated sequel.
“…we screened the movie last night, and just to sit down and watch it, which is not something you really get to do at this stage… I was like okay, some of this is the bomb,” he enthused. “Some of this is really really lovely. The actors are killing it, the sequences are exciting, the editors are amazing and Ben Davis, who shot it, has made it a work of art. There are some hardcore action sequences in this but what’s really grand is how the characters play through those. It’s always got to be about the people. Not just the smaller moments, where they’re talking alone, but the way they’re interacting during the action is really exciting for me.”
Until we get to see it, the promo material will have to suffice, and today the latest character posters have arrived for Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen). We know you’ll have an opinion, so hit the comments section. But first, here’s a brief chat with Whedon about working with James Spader as Ultron on the movie.
‘Age Of Ultron’ arrives overseas on April 23rd and stateside on May 1st.
