THE WINTER SOLDIER May Have Inspired Joss Whedon to Shoot AGE OF ULTRON in Scope

The Winter Soldier is taking the world by storm and it seems it may have left a lasting impression of Avengers: Age of Ultron director Joss Whedon. During The Empire Podcast, the Russo brothers have revealed that their work may have inspired Joss to make some changes for the anticipated sequel.

While Marvel's The Avengers received praise from critics, fans and general audiences alike, one of the common complaints about the movie was how cheap it looked at times. Many blamed this on Seamus McGarvey's cinematography and director Joss Whedon's choice to shoot the film in 1.85:1.

Well those who were hoping for an improvement may have gotten their wish! While speaking to Empire on the Empire Podcast, the Russo brothers have revealed that Joss may have decided to shoot Avengers: Age of Ultron in scope (2.35:1) after watching The Winter Soldier and working on the after credits scene.

"[Joss Whedon] was very complimentary after he saw the movie and very supportive. I think he loved the 2.35 aspect ratio and I think their gonna use that now on Avengers 2" 

Some have noted how great the after credits scene looked so it appears that Joss has improved his cinematic eye. The hiring of a new Director of Photography, Ben Davis (Guardians of the Galaxy), may have also helped.

So what do you think? Are you looking forward to a much more cinematic looking Avengers sequel or were you happy with the visuals of the first film?
