Joss Whedon Says AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON Titular Villain Is 'Strange, Funny, And Unexpected'

"I'm having a blast with Ultron," says Joss Whedon of The Avengers sequel's main villain in the latest Empire magazine issue, where he discusses mor and comments on filming in the United Kingdom.

"I fiercely dislike the idea of just throwing in more people for the sake of doing that," said Avengers: Age of Ultron writer-director Joss Whedon in the latest issue of Empire mag. "But last time I had all of Earth's Mightiest Heroes versus one British character actor, and I needed more conflict. I'm having a blast with Ultron. He's not a creature of logic - he's a robot who's genuinely disturbed. We're finding out what makes him menacing and at the same time endearing and funny and strange and unexpected, and everything a robot never is."
 
Joss Whedon then went on to discuss how the United Kingdom (where Marvel recently announced Avengers: Age of Ultron will typically  get an earlier release April 24, 2015, ahead of the U.S.) is being utilized for filming of the anticipated Marvel sequel's production. "The number of different looks and textures and moods we're getting from the British locations is stupid awesome," he said. "Because this, palette-wise, is very different. I'm trying to make a different film. Because why would you make one movie twice? That seems weird." What do you think?  

The Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Cobie Smulders, Jeremy Renner, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, with Paul Bettany, Samuel L. Jackson, and James Spader. The film is set for release on May 1, 2015.
