Behind Age Of Ultron With Joss Whedon

Joss Whedon

Joss Whedon sat with Empire Online following the release of Age of Ultron. He got into details and revealed a lot from the inner workings of his second installment of the Avengers.

Now that you've probably seen the movie, you might be a bit puzzled about certain aspects. What made him concoct a romance between Bruce Banner and Natasha Romanoff? Why did he sacrifice Quicksilver?

Moreover, why isn't Loki in? What do the final words of Bruce Banner mean? What else did they cut, and how would the movie look like if Joss Whedon alone were to call the shots?

Hit the jump to find the answers to all these questions! However, if you haven't seen the movie, consider yourself warned: some serious spoilers lie ahead!

1. On the Hulk-Black Widow romance

I listed Banner and Romanoff's romance as one of the most shocking moments we got to see in Age of Ultron. Sure it was unexpected, but what's the story behind this surprising moment?

You might think that Joss Whedon has been devising that since the beginning of The Avengers, sending the Black Widow to recruit Bruce Banner like he did.

But think again, 'cause here's what writer-director says about that: "I didn't. But when we shot that scene together, when she goes to recruit him, we did go, 'They're awfully good together'" (he refers to the scene of their first encounter).

Whedon's choice to put the Black Widow and the Hulk together seems much more legit once you hear his arguments. And the man is right.
