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.

‘Avengers 2: Age of Ultron’ Won’t Feature Agent Coulson, Says Joss Whedon

Clark Gregg

In the early days of the Marvel movie universe, Clark Gregg's Agent Coulson was the glue tying all of the films together. It all culminated with 'The Avengers,' where his links to each team member helped drive the story and connect each hero together. However, with the Marvel movies now sustaining themselves, he's become a luxury, not a requirement: everyone's favorite government official will not be in 'The Avengers 2,' now titled 'Age of Ultron.'

How ‘The Avengers’ Exposes the Biggest Problem With ‘Man of Steel’

Warner Bros.
Warner Bros.

In most ways, it's unfair to compare 'Man of Steel' and 'The Avengers.'

Other than the fact that they're both expensive, large-scale superhero movies, they couldn't be more different. Joss Whedon's 'The Avengers' represents the Marvel Studios' modus operandi in every way: it's scrappy, witty, silly and charming; coasting on cool and making it look easy. Zack Snyder's 'Man of Steel' is cut from the same cloth as Christopher Nolan's 'The Dark Knight' films: it's moody, cerebral, intense and big on dramatics, demanding that you take every frame very, very seriously.

In short, one is The Beatles and the other is a symphony. They're both terrific in their own special ways, and putting them side-by-side seems kind of silly. Comparing two films with such divergent styles and intent just seems a little unfair. But ...

The CW's long-troubled Wonder Woman series, 'Amazon,' might still possibly find its footing, while fans have been shouting praise for Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow. Why is it taking so long for a solid female-driven superhero flick to happen? 'Avengers' and 'Avengers 2' director Joss Whedon has the answer, and it pisses him off.

Yesterday brought these delightful words from Hugh Jackman about a theoretical 'Wolverine' and 'Avengers' crossover: "I would love to mix it up with Robert Downey Jr. and Iron Man and kick his ass. It’d be great." 'Nuff said, right? But would you want to see these worlds collide?
