Whenever you watch a major action set piece in a modern movie, you are watching a sequence that probably came together months before the cameras started rolling. Complicated effects-driven scenes are often assembled in an early rough form so that the actual shooting of the scene can go smoothly. Avengers: Age of Ultron was no different; to watch the animatic of the massive battle between Iron Man and the Hulk is to watch how an action scene can change from origin to execution.

When you settle in to watch a movie like Avengers: Age of Ultron, you know you’re going to watch some CGI. You know those armies of killer robots only exist on a computer’s hard drive and you know that the Hulk left that bodybuilder with green body paint back in the ‘70s. And yet it would take an awfully jaded moviegoer to not admire these creations on a purely technical level. As the video above showcases, the computer generated effects in Marvel’s latest movie always look great ... but they especially look great when you start to see the CGI in the scenes that you didn’t think had any CGI.

Here we go again. As we’ve reported before, there is a major lack of Black Widow (and Scarlet Witch, for that matter) featured in Disney’s officially licensed Avengers: Age of Ultron merchandise. Even with Mark Ruffalo asking Marvel for more female superhero toys for his daughter to play with, the companies refuse to take a hint. Further stirring the pot, Disney and Marvel have left Black Widow out of new toy sets featuring one of her most badass moments in Avengers: Age of Ultron. It’s like they’re doing this on purpose or something — oh wait, they are.

When Joss Whedon abruptly quit Twitter the other day, he did so without giving a reason, leaving many to speculate why he ditched the service. It didn’t take long for a photo to start circulating, in which many angry tweets directed at him were placed around his final tweet, suggesting that the reason was obvious: he couldn’t deal with all the people accusing him of being a misogynist. Whedon has finally spoken out about why he left the service, and no, it had nothing to do with those tweets at all.
