The cast of Avengers: Age of Ultron including Scarlett Johansson. Joss Whedon. Elizabeth Olsen. James Spader. Mark Ruffalo. Chris Hemsworth. Robert Downey Jr. Chris Evans. Jeremy Renner. Paul Bettany. Cobie Smulders. Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Mr. Kevin Feige came together for a press conference to promote their upcoming new Marvel Film in theatres, May 1, 2015.
The round of questions began with Cobie Smulders who was asked about the changes her character went through in Captain America and what we will see in Age of Ultron . Cobie shared that Maria Hill is now under the employment of Tony Stark and working private security now.
Paul Bettany was up next and talked about what it felt like to be more than just a voice in Age of Ultron. Paul joked saying although it was great to be able to work with all the incredibly creative and talented people, the negative side was having to attend junkets (guess he did not want to be there).
For Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson who play twins with a unique chemistry were asked whether having previously worked together was an advantage or disadvantage? Both felt it was an advantage because joining such a big ensemble and cast made it easier having someone you were comfortable with.
Robert Downey Jr. came next and joked about the fact he was not asked the first question. His question was about the fatherly side, Tony Stark shows in the movie, specifically taking care of Hulk. Downey Jr. shared that Joss had created some great new situations for Tony Stark.
Question for Joss and Kevin was , how much impact did Avengers: Age of Ulron have on the phase 2 movies coming our way – Ivon Man 2, Thor 2, Captain America 2, and Guardians of the Galaxy.
Kevin Feige replied that “A lot of those were already in the works. I mean, Iron Man 3 and Cap 2 and Thor 2 were already in the works just as Avengers was coming out. I would say it was more about how those movies were impacted by the first Avengers film,
The press conference wrapped up with Kevin Feige giving us a a bit of information in that as they were putting together the other Phase 2 movies, Hulk and Hawkeye would be two characters that hadn’t, you know, gotten much exposure in between the movies, ‘cause he said he had very big plans for the two of those characters in this one.
Avengers: Age of Ultron will be in theatres, May 1, 2015 and is going to be an amazing adventure. Don’t miss the premiere and join me at the movies this Friday.
