Avengers: Age of Ultron director Joss Whedon gets to explain quite a bit of what we can expect, including some MAJOR changes in between the first and second movie, which Joss says he won't explain to us now, or ever. He claims the movie doesn't even explain some things, you just have to pick up on some context clues:
The model I'm always trying to build from is The Godfather: Part II, where a ton has happened in between and it's a very different movie, but you don't need any information. You're in the vernacular of the first movie and you're ready to just pick up in this new place. It's got a sci-fi element to it that's stronger than the other film. And it's a little bit darker. Getting the team together was so rousing, but keeping the team together is a completely different problem.
I think we can pick up on some things, we've seen all the other Marvel Studios movies in between the first and the second one (or at least we will in less than a month with [Guardians of the Galaxy](movie:424073)), and we already know that Hulk goes green in Johannesburg in the early parts of the movie, and that the team has likely all moved into the Avengers Tower, or will at the movie's opening.
With as many differences and arguments we saw in the first film, its amazing that they could finally agree on things after the "death" of Agent Coulson. After that, I'm sure it will be VERY hard to get anyone to agree on anything. We saw the cat fight between Tony & Steve in the Helicarrier! Hopefully that Helicarrier is still alive since the three in [Captain America: The Winter Soldier](movie:254973) seemed to be newly built.
Next up, we get word from the superhero duo [Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch](movie:1081109)! Here we learn some pretty cool things about Wanda's movie powers, learn that she's "messed up", as well as the two's relationship, and possibly the best part, a potential conflict between Quicksilver and the Vision! First up is Scarlet Witch!
I just love Scarlet Witch. She is a messed up lady. She can tell you where an object has been, she can tell you what your future is, she can connect with the dead and people from other universes and she's the only person in this universe who's capable of doing that.
Hmm, perhaps this little lady doesn't realize yet that sounds very much like the upcoming Avengers superhero soon to get a solo film, Doctor Strange. Next up is Aaron Taylor-Johnson on his role as Quicksilver.
His sister really is his guidance. He's very over-protective of her physically, but emotionally she's the one who looks after him.
From what I'm hearing is that he's an over-protective big brother, which is going to be rather, no, extremely difficult considering that they start off as villains against the Avengers and Scarlet Witch's love interest shows up in this movie for the very first time: the one she ends up marrying and having kids with. Can I just say I'm hoping for a battle between Quicksilver and the Vision now? Who's with me?
