He’s completely wiped out—”raggedy” as he puts it—by his schedule, which he describes thusly: “I do this, I go home, I rewrite, I go to sleep. I do this, I go home, I rewrite, I go to sleep.”

It’s not much, but what is here is going to appeal certain dedicated fans.

For a massive superhero film like 'Avengers: Age of Ultron,' we imagine it should take our heroes to some pretty epic places, and that the conflicts they face have a pretty wide-reaching effect.

"It’s a very sweaty and hot decision that got made. But it’s really fucking cool."
