Kevin Feige On THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON Script And BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN
Does Marvel feel pressure from Batman Vs. Superman? Kevin Feige answers that and discusses The Avengers sequel's script, declaring it's like a culmination of the other Phase 2 films, yet standalone.
The latest chat with Kevin Feige has the Marvel Studios president of production discuss the script for Joss Whedon's The Avengers: Age of Ultron and what to expect. "It's still early days, but I will say that like the first Avengers, [the sequel] is the culmination of the films before it while at the same time being structured in a way that it could stand on its own," Feige told Fandango during an interview. "That's one of the big challenges with all our films. And the script that's coming together for Age of Ultron is absolutely influenced by all the movies post-Avengers that lead up to it, but at the same time structurally it'll be able to stand on its own. It's exciting to see exactly how different the world of the Avengers is at the beginning of Avengers 2 than it was at the end of The Avengers, in large part because of the stories in between."
A few months after The Avengers reassemble in 2015, Batman and Superman will unite on-screen in Warner Bros. and Zack Snyder's sequel to Man of Steel. When Kevin Feige was asked if Marvel feels pressure from the DC Comics film, tentatively titled Batman Vs. Superman, he says, "Ya know, I think there's something like seven weeks between them, which in moviegoing is really a lifetime. So I don't think it's really a [Marvel-DC] showdown of any kind." When pressed for thoughts on the team-up flick, Feige would only say: "I'm excited to see it." 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.
