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. In an interview with Marvel's own The Watcher web series, director Joss Whedon discusses the global scale of his upcoming 'Avengers' sequel, the international locations where they shot the film, and hints that not everyone in the film is a fan of our beloved super-team.

Although we've known quite a bit about what to expect from 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' for a while now thanks to this thing called The Internet and to the rather excellent Marvel panel at Comic-Con 2014, tonight Marvel has finally revealed the official plot synopsis for the upcoming superhero super-sequel -- among the details you'll find a little nugget about Vision, a new character, but one with which fans will already be familiar.
How well do you think you know Marvel's 'The Avengers'? Did you catch the earlier appearance of that shawarma joint before the team had a celebratory chow down? Did you know the movie was initially three hours and 10 minutes? Well, we cover that and more in ScreenCrush's latest edition of 'You Think You Know Movies?'
The Avengers were out in force last night during Marvel's eye-popping Comic-Con panel, and despite plenty of mirth and goodwill on the packed panel itself, the footage shown to the crowd hinted at a much darker story to come in Joss Whedon's 'Avengers 2.'
"Have you ever been hung in the air by your genitals? I have," joked 'Avengers 2' star Paul Bettany. During the earlier Comic-Con 2014 festivities, Marvel released a slew of concept art-based posters for the film, one of which featured newcomer character The Vision floating above Ultron's many robotic minions, and it turns out the process of transforming Bettany into this sentient being wasn't always seamless. "It’s a very sweaty and hot decision that got made. But it’s really fucking cool."
Looks like Captain America isn't the only Avenger who can get around on two wheels, as a new look at Joss Whedon's 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' reveals that Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) will also be taking it to the streets on a big hog.

Turns out, it's Harley-Davidson's very first electric motorcycle, one they like to call by the superhero movie-ready name "Project LiveWire."
It's been a huge week for 'Avengers 2' -- aside from our first look at the sentient villain Ultron, eight new photos from the film debuted online, and Entertainment Weekly continues dropping plot point after plot point.
