AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON: Joss Whedon And Kevin Feige Talk Ultron's Army And Hulkbuster

Joss Whedon teases the "epic" Avengers: Age of Ultron sequel and his plans for the Hulkbuster armour and what it means for the friendship between Tony Stark and Bruce Banner. Kevin Feige meanwhile also shares his thoughts on the suit and the army utilised by Ultron...

It's been a while since we've heard anything about Avengers: Age of Ultron now that Comic-Con is done and over with, but Empire (transcribed by CBM from their latest issue) recently sat down with producer Kevin Feige and writer/director Joss Whedon to get a few extra details about the highly anticipated sequel. "It's more epic and in other ways it's more noirish and suspect and devious and specific," Whedon teased, before adding: "Ultron...he's got a touch of the apocalypse in him." That's pretty obvious, but Feige's comments about the villain and his army in the follow-up are even more intriguing, and it definitely sounds as if we should expect to see plenty of battles between them and Earth's Mightiest Heroes. "Ultron was the villain Joss wanted, from midway through production on the first film, to have serious repercussions for The Avengers. We unveiled a poster here which is nothing but Ultron after Ultron after Ultron clawing at the beginning to defeat all of our Avengers. That's what a lot of this movie is about."

Talk then turned to the footage shown at this year's Comic-Con (a description of which you can read by clicking here), including a shot of the Hulk battling it out with a souped up Iron Man who has donned the Hulkbuster suit for unknown reasons. Feige wasn't willing to elaborate on what those reasons might be, saying only: "It's a bespoke suit. The back-up plan in case things go awry." Whedon was a little more forthcoming though and addressed how the relationship between Tony Stark and Bruce Banner - they are "Science Bros" after all - has an impact on the battle. "The Hulkbuster is from after my time [as a reader], but even I knew what a big deal it was. It makes sense because there's no one who can really go up against Hulk, but more importantly, those guys are best friends, so what that battle is and what it means is fascinating to me." What do you think about these latest Avengers: Age of Ultron details? Share your thoughts below...

Age of Ultron will be insane!!
csdot - 8/24/2014, 11:50 AM
Has anyone said that maybe Ultron has taken over the hulk buster suit to take hulk down and that's what's going on in the scene?
TheManFromMars - 8/24/2014, 11:52 AM
Still waiting the trailer...
MakluIV - 8/24/2014, 11:52 AM

Well, when the only sex you are getting is your own finger up your ass, I can see why you would think that.

"A:AOU will be the most epic movie ever!! So much better than the bullshit DC movies LMFAO!!! Marvel > sex!!"

Dude, find a hobby or something.
Invictor - 8/24/2014, 11:54 AM
This movie will be epic. Can't wait to see how it all plays out.
ALegendaryPanda - 8/24/2014, 11:55 AM
This is my most anticipated movie of 2015 other than Star Wars. Everything I see and hear about this movie just makes me even more pumped!
TheRealMandarin - 8/24/2014, 11:55 AM
Hey hey now ultron also has the twins on his side so it won't just be avengers vs army,but avengers vs super powered twins and army
Niklander - 8/24/2014, 11:55 AM
I can't wait for Age Of Ultron bring the goods Whedon you are the only I can trust

"Ultron was the villain Joss wanted, from midway through production on the first film, to have serious repercussions for The Avengers."

And THAT is one of the prime reasonings why I'm excited for this film.
EhMaybeSays - 8/24/2014, 11:57 AM
AoU will shit over GOTG.
TheRationalNerd - 8/24/2014, 11:57 AM
Seems like Banner will have a pretty significant reasoning to go against Stark. I hope Stark gets his tail handed to him...teach him to stop joking around! lol
TheAbomination - 8/24/2014, 11:58 AM
That Hulkbuster scene is gonna be unreal. Bring on the teaser trailer.
McNyagano - 8/24/2014, 11:58 AM
"It makes sense because there's no one who can really go up against Hulk.."


"..but more importantly, those guys are best friends, so what that battle is and what it means is fascinating to me."

That's what I'm talking about. This is gonna be great if it's handle well and I trust Joss can pull it off. That's definately a part of the film I'm most excited to see. The conflict that arises between two close friends. I'm starting to assume that Banner doesn't even know Tony built the Hulkbuster. That's gonna add to the drama and conflict. Ever since I found out that Ultron doesn't see Thor as a problem but rather a solution and tries to turn him against the Avengers, I'm guessing Ultron might pull the same shtick with Bruce/Hulk here. Can't wait!!

"There are no strings on me."

My only concern with this movie is that it will be more of the same.
Dingbat - 8/24/2014, 12:00 PM
I thought Turk was banned
AlfredWayne30 - 8/24/2014, 12:01 PM
This movie will be over hyped jus like the 1st one it's the same ole same ole stuff wit marvel it's lame an boring the writing is poop but nobody address how cheesy the 1st film is It's going to make money soo who cares I guess...DC will own I can wait till BvS
MakluIV - 8/24/2014, 12:03 PM
Age of Ultron blew the roof off Hall H. The internet will break when it hits the masses.
MrReese - 8/24/2014, 12:03 PM
Comic Con Winner!!

panther505 - 8/24/2014, 12:03 PM
@McNyagano-I could agree with that idea, just like the idea in Avengers with the cage for Hulk in the Shield Helicarrier.
Spideysense44 - 8/24/2014, 12:03 PM
I really hope we get some great Quicksilver action scenes
TankD - 8/24/2014, 12:03 PM
@csdot i havnt seen the footage but if anyone saw it and HB had red eyes that would be ultrons signature.
MrReese - 8/24/2014, 12:04 PM
I really hope it isn't a Chitauri vs Avengers type of deal with the Ultron bots or what have.
EhMaybeSays - 8/24/2014, 12:06 PM
I dislike that Thor seems like the weakest link though. I also hope they do a Cap2 over a GOTG.
TankD - 8/24/2014, 12:06 PM
@alfredwayne hahahaha stfu

Spideysense44 - 8/24/2014, 12:07 PM
I wanna see Quicksilver run into Caps shield when they battle
DrKinsolving - 8/24/2014, 12:07 PM
I can't wait, hope we get to see some of that footage.... This movie will be [frick]ing epic, just think about all of this and also Scarlett Witch and Quicksilver will be involved, I can't wait
batz11 - 8/24/2014, 12:09 PM
Love the people who are critical of Marvel, banking on DC to kick their ass...let's actually see a DCCU before you elevate DC as the new champs...
GeekyCheekyChic - 8/24/2014, 12:09 PM
Hmm sounds interesting Joss. Tell us more.
EhMaybeSays - 8/24/2014, 12:11 PM
batz11 - 8/24/2014, 12:11 PM
I will enjoy both cinematic universes, can't wait for DC/WB to finally get off their asses...the DC characters are great, more excited for WW, Aquaman and Flash...haven't seen them proper on the big screen! We definitely are in the cbm golden age!
MakluIV - 8/24/2014, 12:12 PM
Ultron Mk-1 looks creepy as hell! Seeing Ultron evolve and develop philosophy will be [frick]ing crazy! Can't wait!!
TankD - 8/24/2014, 12:16 PM
@alfredwayne30 I mean are you kidding me? the tone is perfect the dialogue and writing is perfect. if you've ever read a modern avengers comic it captures the tone flawlessly. and its not to dark. and I like my movies dark. Im looking forward to the DCCU but the avengers is the greatest ensemble comicbookfilm ever made. If you dont like it I feel sorry for you son.
JoJo1982 - 8/24/2014, 12:17 PM
It's going to be
Avengers vs Avengers (hulk vs iron man)
Avengers vs Hydra
Avengers vs the twins
Avengers vs Ultron army
Avengers vs Ultron upgrade
MakluIV - 8/24/2014, 12:17 PM
Whedon directed the greatest superhero film of all times. Now he's introducing The Vision, Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver, Hulk Buster and Ultron! Damn this is going to be beyond Epic!!
Jollem - 8/24/2014, 12:18 PM
MoS is the greatest superhero movie currently, but that doesn't mean there aren't a buttload of other good cbms
batz11 - 8/24/2014, 12:19 PM
Jollem, huh?
