Avengers: Age of Ultron: Whedon and Feige Give Ultron and Hulkbuster Armor Update
“Avengers: Age of Ultron” head creators director Joss Whedon and Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige give updates on the film, with the opposing army the league of superheroes are facing and more plot stirrings. Read on to know more about the details.
Marvel Studios certainly took the world by storm when “The Avengers” wowed the box office as it hit $1.359 billion in its accumulated global gross. From that moment on, it was a clear indication that the franchise has established an astounding fan base that are eager to find out what’s going to happen in the next installment. That being said, we already know that our favorite stars, with their corresponding superhero titles, are suiting up to reprise their roles. We also know that they will be adding a series of new faces, with Aaron Taylor-Johnson playing Quicksilver, Elizabeth Olsen playing Scarlet Witch and James Spader voicing over Ultron. This time around, movie director Joss Whedon and Marvel’s big boss Kevin Feige give more updates for the film as they finally finished the production phase of the film. They are now gearing towards the post-production, putting all the pieces together in making another blockbuster superhero masterpiece.
The established creators certainly picked the right moment to taunt their audience in what’s going to transpire in the next installment. Big boss Feige gave a brief but very direct explanation as to why they picked Ultron (Spader) in the main villain role. It was all due to how his adversary elements sparked the interest of director Joss. He strongly believes that such villain is capable enough to cause a huge rift in the justice-serving morals of the earth’s mightiest heroes.
“Ultron was the villain Joss wanted, from midway through production on the first film, to have serious repercussions for The Avengers. We unveiled a poster here which is nothing but Ultron after Ultron after Ultron clawing at [and] beginning to defeat all of our Avengers. That’s what a lot of this movie is about,” explained Feige in the Screen Rant article.
Putting things in order, we now understand that the heroes are bound to face a heavy set of adversaries with possible earth-shattering capabilities. Time-bending swiftness, reality alteration, telekinesis, intense robot armies — Whedon then adds that Ultron is capable of delivering a putrid taste of judgment day.
“It’s more epic and in other ways it’s more noirish and suspect and devious and specific. Ultron…he’s got a touch of the apocalypse in him,” teased Whedon, as published on Comic Book Movie, when asked about the much-awaited sequel.
The updates also shifted into the revelation of an image during the Comic-Con, wherein a bulked up Iron Man suit is going head-to-head with the Hulk. Readers of the comic books were able to easily identify that the suit’s name is Hulkbuster. In Comic Book Movie’s report, Marvel’s president Feige gave the discreet comment that the suit was bespoke and that it was a contingency plan in case situations went way out of hand. Whedon gave a different take on the matter though.
“The Hulkbuster is from after my time [as a reader], but even I knew what a big deal it was. It makes sense because there’s no one who can really go up against Hulk, but more importantly, those guys are best friends, so what that battle is and what it means is fascinating to me,” remarked Whedon.

From these updates alone, it’s very much evident that the Avengers will be facing a serious threat. However, when seriousness is concerned, the movie is not bound to carry the heavy weight, distressing emotions all throughout its entire duration. Humor will still be ever present, and according to Screen Rant, its comical element is fully intact and can be expected to unfold in full effect. Catch the movie on its release in May 2015.
That sums up our update for the villains and the premises of “Avengers: Age of Ultron.” Continue to browse Movie News Guide (MNG) for the more happenings in the entertainment industry.
