15 Avengers: Age of Ultron – Assembled & Ready
Return to the ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron Page

With the final battle completed, the production wound down for the last remaining days in London and completed principal photography on August 5, 2014. The cast and filmmakers reflect upon the experience and what audiences can expect from Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron.”

“I hope people say ‘Wow’ after they see this film,” says Robert Downey Jr. “When you have a big movie like this, there are big expectations and I hope that audiences feel as good about this as they did when they came and saw the third ‘Iron Man,’ and as they did when they saw the most recent ‘Captain America’ and ‘Thor.’ This movie is incredibly fun and thoughtful and has great themes. There is also a whole bunch of new characters and it really raises the bar. That’s when I know it has my seal of approval.”

Chris Hemsworth points out that Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” is definitely ratcheting up the movie-going experience for audiences. He explains why: “We’ve gone to far more locations than we have ever before and covered more ground, so aesthetically it’s going to be a mash-up of a whole lot of different locations and styles and images. Everything has just been dialed up. Even the complexity of the story has gone deeper and we’ve seen all these characters evolve in the individual films and now to see them come together a second time is pretty exciting.”

“The Avengers films are the pillars of our cinematic universe,” says Kevin Feige. “The scope of this film is massive, from shooting at Dover Castle in England to downtown Johannesburg, South Africa, to a gigantic edifice in Northern Italy, to being the first Hollywood film to shoot on the streets of Seoul in South Korea. Throw in all the amazing sets and work on the soundstages this by far is the biggest Marvel film ever produced. Our intention was to make the best Marvel film ever produced. Audiences will be the judge of that, but we are unbelievably excited about this film.”

Summing up what audiences can expect, Whedon says, “What was so grand about this weird, disparate group coming together is that we also know that nothing lasts forever and that there is a dark side to everything. It’s going to be a little more grown-up than the first one. A little scarier. A little funkier. But in the end, it’s got the same values; it’s got the same extraordinary characters and a lot of humor. And yes, there may be some punching.”
