Jurassic World director Colin Treverrow released a new photo from the film on his Twitter feed. Sure, it’s sorta cool, but I looks a bit photoshoped. And one can’t help but wonder why Chist Pratt is able to stand this close to a raptor without being ripped apart. But hey, in Hollywood anything’s possible.
The Avengers: Age of Ultron reporting embargo was lifted today and multiple sites – Slashfilm, IGN, Collider , Screen Crush and HitFix – published their on-set interview with director Joss Whedon.
HitFix‘s Drew McWeeny offered the following observations about being there:
Joss Whedon looked tired. And not just a little tired, either. He looked weary, deep down in his bones tired. He looked like he was ready to just fall down where he was and sleep for a week.
One of the most amazing things we saw during our time on set was Paul Bettany in his full Vision make-up and costume…
One of the things they told us during our visit was that Bruce Banner and the Hulk both have greatly increased roles this time around … Bruce plays a key role in the creation of Ultron, so it’s not just the rage monster we’re spending time with this time around…
Among many things, Mr. Whedon had this to say…
“… before I took the first job, I said, ‘Well, I don’t know if I’m right for this or if I want it or you want me, but in the second one, the villain has Ultron and he has to create the Vision, and then, that has to be Paul Bettany.'” (laughter)
“I was ragged from the first one, and so I just turned off my brain. I was like, ‘Do not think of cool ideas for the next one. Just get through this.’ But after a few months when they talked about actually paying me, I would say, ‘Alright, this is now something that makes sense in my life; do I have anything to say?’”
“I think the biggest mistake in the world of franchising is… well, as he says in Gattaca: ‘Know how I beat you? I didn’t save anything for the way back.’ Don’t worry about, ‘Well, we can do something next time.’ It’s like, whatever you want, get it in there. Not that we can do everything with every character but you wanna get an arc that’s complete. You don’t want people to think “Wow, that’s part one of something” or even part two of something.'”
“Ultron feels a certain distance from humanity…”
“… ‘strong but damaged by power’ describes every person in this movie. It may, in fact, describe what the movie is about. You know, the more power that we have, the less human we are.”
“… for me, what’s fun about Quicksilver isn’t necessarily seeing Quicksilver, it’s seeing the Avengers.”
“I wasn’t the one who said don’t make a Hulk film or anything like that. It was [Marvel’s] Kevin [Feige] that said to me, ‘We think right now it’s good to have somebody who we can only see in the Avengers.'”
