Joss Whedon Talks Spoilery Details About AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON's Climax


There's a lot of pressure on Avengers: Age of Ultron to succeed. It being a commercial success is a given, but can it top the $1.5 billion haul of 2012's The Avengers? For that matter, will it acheive the same sort of critical acclaim? Either way, it's going to be a lot bigger! "Avengers: Age of Ultron got larger than the first film," Whedon explains in an interview with Yahoo! Movies. "I didn’t mean for it to get larger, but the climax that I pitched was completely unhinged and nobody said no, so that’s that. The biggest thing for me [in ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’] is to go deeper with the characters." Asked about how he would describe the super sized sequel, Whedon added: "To me, adventure film is the best way to put it. Then science fiction, action, western, war, woman’s picture, horror movie … I’m not kidding; every single one of those things is in there."

Asked about just how literally fans should take that Comic-Con poster (a piece of which you can see above), Whedon confirmed that the final act of the movie will include a massive battle between Earth's Mightiest Heroes and Ultron's army of robots. As it turns out, that's exactly what we'll end up seeing! "You know they’re going to fight Ultron. You know Ultron has a tendency to build hundreds of Ultrons. So that’s going to lead you in a certain direction, but the hard work of the thing is making sure everyone feels serviced and integrated. So, in the beginning it’s fun. You’re thinking, ‘What would be fun, what would be cool?’ The whole movie [‘Age of Ultron’] is a process of changing everything and keeping everything the same. You want to hit all the things that made people love the first movie, but you also want to make something new or why are you here." That sounds a lot like the climax of The Avengers, but the filmmaker pointed out one key difference for the sequel; this time around, the big final battle will have some major ramifications.

"The whole movie [‘Age of Ultron’] is a process of changing everything and keeping everything the same. You want to hit all the things that made people love the first movie, but you also want to make something new or why are you here," Whedon  teases. "I don’t want to make The Avengers again - I did that one time. With the ending it was important for me that we felt a progression. We didn’t just feel, ‘well, no problem, we cleaned that up!’ because that’s an episode of television. That’s not a film. This film, there’s more at stake and we take that seriously."
