Every major film goes through an extensive development process where it is continuously rewritten and rebuilt until it everyone feels it is ready to go before the cameras. This means that many of your favorite movies were, at one point, completely different than the finished product. This definitely applies to 'The Avengers,' but we're only just now starting to understand the extreme evolution Joss Whedon's film took on its way to the big screen.
New animatics from early in the film's development have popped up online and they give us a look at a completely different version of the film, including glimpses of the Wasp, a character who was completely cut from the movie.
'The Avengers' may be a movie filled with gods, monsters, aliens, robot suits and super soldiers, but the character of Natasha Romanov (aka Black Widow) proves that you don't need to have superpowers to be in a lineup with the world's mightiest superheroes. A deadly Russian agent turned agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., the greatest spy in the Marvel universe has been a popular cosplay subject for years, and few have done it as well as this.
Ever since the title 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron' was revealed by Marvel and Joss Whedon at Comic-Con 2013 last month, there's been a lot of talk of how this epic villain will be handled for his big-screen translation. Now it seems we've gotten some (vague) answers from Whedon himself, who opened up about the difference between comic book Ultron and movie Ultron.
In Marvel comics canon, the villainous robot Ultron is the creation of scientist/superhero Hank Pym (AKA, Ant-Man). So many fans raised an eyebrow when it was revealed that 'Avengers: Age of Ultron would see the team facing down the villain months before Edgar Wright's 'Ant-Man' arrived in theaters (and, that Ant-Man wouldn't be a part of 'Avengers 2'). However, there's a very simple reason why Ultron is making his first cinematic appearance in 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' and not 'Ant-Man' -- Wright never intended for Pym's nemesis to be in the film in the first place.
We all know that Tom Hiddleston's Loki sadly won't be making an appearance in 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron,' and he made it officially official in recent statements and his departure is making room for additional characters, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver.
Joss Whedon's announcement at San Diego Comic-Con that his 'Avengers 2' takes its official title from the 'Age of Ultron' comics sent an explosion of excitement throughout the buzzing Hall H, but apparently this plan was in the works for months prior. As Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige reiterated a point Whedon made, the movie won't follow the classic storyline and Ultron origin, instead utilizing plot points from various 'Avengers' adventures.
