It looks like another major script for Disney is completed and in the hands of its star: Avengers: Age of Ultron. So far Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow) and Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner/Hulk) have chimed in with their excitement for the project after reading the script, but unfortunately don't offer any juicy details. Scarlett will be suiting up as the Black Widow for the fourth time for Marvel by the time the Avengers sequel shoots, but she doesn't seem to be losing excitement for the role. During an interview with Parade Magazine, she spoke on it briefly:
Well, we can expect the Avengers. Joss, again, is back, wrote the script, and is directing. I think the script is dark and it’s dry, it’s got this amazing one-liner, glass-cutting sense of humor. Obviously the script is very cerebral. It doesn’t lose that exciting comic book aspect that people enjoyed in the first film, but it’s smart and it feels like the next installment. It doesn’t feel like a rehashing, it feels like these characters are moving forward, plotlines are moving forward. It’s deep and I think that’s why people really respond to the Marvel universe, because the films are fun and exciting and have all that flashy stuff, but there’s a gravity to them. People can expect that gravity this time around.
Mark Ruffalo offered a bit more the other day, when talking about his personal desires for the direction of a solo Hulk movie, but not as much on Avengers 2. He did echo the optimism of Scarlett, telling MTV News:
I would say that it's better, it's cooler, it's more awesomer. It's a little bit darker, but also really has Joss Whedon's incredibly, witty and sly sense of humor. [Bruce Banner] gets to do such great stuff.
With all these leaks and scoops going around, you think someone would have nabbed something on the Avengers 2 script, but it seems Marvel and Disney have it on lock-down. Good news for the studio however is the delay for Batman vs. Superman, leaving Avengers: Age of Ultron as the only major superhero movie for the summer of 2015.
