We were on the ‘Avengers 2’ set last year and it was very clear, even though filming was only about halfway done, that Joss Whedon wouldn’t be coming back for another ‘Avengers’ movie. As we mentioned in our interview with him, he was, by his own admission, completely worn out. We didn’t address his future at the time, but now that filming has wrapped and the movie is only about three months away, Whedon was asked point blank about his return, and it’s pretty much what we all expected.

‘Avengers 2’ graced the cover of Empire Magazine this month, and while there are two covers featuring new looks at Ultron and the team’s new lineup, it’s something on the inside of this issue that caught our attention. Director Joss Whedon spoke to Empire and dropped this bomb: “I’ve come to the conclusion that Ultron is right. The Avengers need to die.”
Joss Whedon is tired. It’s just about halfway through the shoot for ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ in London, and Whedon doesn’t as much sit down for our interview as he does collapse into a chair. It’s a bright and sunny day in London, but he looks like he hasn’t seen the sunshine in weeks. 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.”
If you buy ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ on Blu-ray or DVD tomorrow (as you definitely should and probably will), you’ll be treated to lots of bonus features, including some special behind the scenes footage from ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron.’ Some of that footage made its way online today, with director Joss Whedon giving us a sneak peek at the filming of the upcoming superhero super-sequel, featuring plenty of glimpses at Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch in action.
With the release date of Joss Whedon’s ‘The Avengers: Age of Ultron’ slowly marching closer and closer, Marvel Studios has officially started the slow and steady process of saturating the entire planet with marketing. The trailer was only step one. Within a few months, you won’t be able to walk three feet in any direction without hearing someone say “Avengers” or “Ultron.” Today marks a small but very necessary step in that process: the official website for the film has been updated. 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. 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.
