AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON: Joss Whedon And Kevin Feige Talk Ultron's Army And Hulkbuster

Joss Whedon teases the "epic" Avengers: Age of Ultron sequel and his plans for the Hulkbuster armour and what it means for the friendship between Tony Stark and Bruce Banner. Kevin Feige meanwhile also shares his thoughts on the suit and the army utilised by Ultron...


It's been a while since we've heard anything about Avengers: Age of Ultron now that Comic-Con is done and over with, but Empire (transcribed by CBM from their latest issue) recently sat down with producer Kevin Feige and writer/director Joss Whedon to get a few extra details about the highly anticipated sequel. "It's more epic and in other ways it's more noirish and suspect and devious and specific," Whedon teased, before adding: "Ultron...he's got a touch of the apocalypse in him." That's pretty obvious, but Feige's comments about the villain and his army in the follow-up are even more intriguing, and it definitely sounds as if we should expect to see plenty of battles between them and 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 the beginning to defeat all of our Avengers. That's what a lot of this movie is about."

Talk then turned to the footage shown at this year's Comic-Con (a description of which you can read by clicking here), including a shot of the Hulk battling it out with a souped up Iron Man who has donned the Hulkbuster suit for unknown reasons. Feige wasn't willing to elaborate on what those reasons might be, saying only: "It's a bespoke suit. The back-up plan in case things go awry." Whedon was a little more forthcoming though and addressed how the relationship between Tony Stark and Bruce Banner - they are "Science Bros" after all - has an impact on the battle. "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."
