Marvel Co-President Discusses Tony Stark's Return In THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON
Initially talking about directing the Agent Carter short film, Marvel Studios Co-President Louis D'Esposito tells IGN Tony Stark may be up to old tricks in The Avengers sequel while co-leading the team!
"Obviously, we're big in connectivity... you can see it in all our films," Louis D'Esposito told IGN when the interviewer suggested that J.A.R.V.I.S and Ultron could be connected. "It's one big Marvel cinematic universe and there will be some connectivity." What's next on Tony Stark's emotional arc? "He's leading the team with Captain America. I don't know where he's at 100%; we're still developing the screenplay and Joss Whedon is writing furiously to get that finished," D'Esposito continued. "But obviously I've seen a couple of drafts [so] it's hard for me to say at this point what [Tony] is doing and what his emotional mindset is. You can see where it was where we left in Iron Man 3 - he's in love with Pepper, he's made a grand gesture to blow up the suits at that point. But at the end, he couldn't help himself and I think he will go back to tinkering; that's what he does." In other Avengers: Age of Ultron news, William Shatner recently commented on his former Boston Legal co-star James Spader joining the Marvel sequel as the subtitlar villain. "He's going to have trouble," Shatner told the Huffington Post. "He's so full of life and love that acting as an automaton will be very difficult for him." What do you think?
So far starring Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Cobie Smulders, Jeremy Renner, Samuel L. Jackson and James Spader, with Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen in negotiations to join, The Avengers: Age of Ultron is directed by Joss Whedon from his screenplay, and is slated to begin production in March 2014 and release on May 1, 2015.
