Original ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ Ending Revealed

Avengers: Age of Ultron Bloopers Gag Reel Surfaces.

Last night I attended an event where Marvel head Kevin Feige and Avengers producer Jeremy Latchem were in attendance answering questions about Avengers: Age of Ultron and the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Forget the Dark Side — the video Marvel released on Monday night shows the silly side of our favorite superheroes, including Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man) coaxing Chris Hemsworth (Thor) and Chris Evans (Captain America) to dance with him. Ever since details started leaking out about the feud between Captain America and Tony Stark in the upcoming “Captain America: Civil War,” there have been two huge questions on everyone’s minds. This was the sequel to the movie that solidified once and for all that Marvel Studios was not only a force to be reckoned with, they were changing the blockbuster game entirely. You can read everything they said about plotting the Infinity Stones in the first two and upcoming phase three of the MCU, and where they are headed in The Avengers: Infinity War Parts 1 and 2 in our other post. The first question, obviously, is whether Cap and Tony will settle their differences with a no-holds-barred naked cage fight. (Which nobody will admit is happening, but nobody’s denied it, either.

Writer/director Joss Whedon and his team worked tirelessly to craft a follow-up that was bold, ambitious, and very different from what came before, and while the filmmaker has been candid about creative struggles that permeated throughout the film’s development and post-production, the end result remains an admirably strange movie. In this post you can find all the interesting answers that didn’t fit thematically in the other post: Kevin Feige: It was in the script at one point, it might have been one draft. So.) While at an LA event celebrating the in-home release of “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” MTV News asked Marvel mastermind Kevin Feige about it, and he was unequivocal… that this is totally the wrong question. Because “Civil War” is, first and foremost, a conclusion to the triptych saga of Captain America Steve Rogers. “It’s very much, in a certain way, the completion of a Captain America trilogy,” Feige said. “I think one day you’ll look back and watch — ’Captain America: The First Avenger,’ ’Captain America: The Winter Soldier,’ and ’Captain America: Civil War’ — and it’ll be one of the most unique and different trilogies ever around a single character.” However, Feige confirmed that the non-Cap characters had an important role to play, too, saying, “[We’re] bringing in some of the other players, most importantly Tony Stark, to tell that ’Civil War’ story. The movie culminates with an almost entirely different Avengers lineup, one that sees Chris Evans’ Captain America leading a team that includes Black Widow as his co-captain and newcomers Vision, Wanda, Falcon, and Rhodes filling out the new ensemble while the original Avengers are scattered into the wind.

And we shot a plate and thought we may add her in there but the truth is it just didn’t seem appropriate to have this new person in a new costume come out of nowhere at the end of this story. But it is very much a sequel to ’Winter Soldier.’” Which brings us to a third question, because we can’t help noticing that Feige keeps saying things like “completion” and “unique” and “single character.” And “Civil War” will clearly be the conclusion of a discrete three-movie arc for Cap. And then it was like, ‘Well we haven’t really introduced them, we don’t know where they’re gonna come from,’ and Joss kind of did not love that idea. I believe I was the only one in attendance who was recording video, so while you might read some choice quotes elsewhere — this is a bit of an exclusive.

It’s tempting to analyze Feige’s comments for proof of Cap’s demise, but it’s also unlikely that the Marvel studios prez would drop such a giant hint on purpose about the possible impending death of one of their biggest heroes, so let’s not jump to conclusions. But Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has explained in the past that he didn’t want to bring Captain Marvel into the MCU fully formed, opting instead to tell her origin story in the Captain Marvel movie.

And then that felt weird, to just have one new person and the guys go “what?” Kevin Feige: And also what does Captain America say? ‘They’re not the 27 Yankees’. The notion that they need to be, certainly Wanda and Vision, and to a lesser extent Falcon and Rhodey, need tolearn what it means to be a team, even if the most dysfunctional team in the history of teams. But a lot of it is, by the time we start doing a movie they might be midway through (filming) a season and by the time the movie comes out they’ll be done with their second season and starting a third season. On a personal level making these movies it means a lot because you can do great things with Spider-Man and he can serve a great purpose in our universe, and thats where he belongs.

And sometimes a filmmaker will say, okay so theres this orb and we’re like, okay lets put something inside that orb and have it tie into the large mythology. Kevin Feige: The short answer is: the most important thing is the stand alone movie, relaunching Spider-Man with a stand alone movie with a new storyline that fits into this universe – thats job number one for us. Sometimes in super specific things, but for the most part in broad strokes that are broad enough and loose enough that if through the development of four or five movies before we get to the culmination, as you say, we still have room to sway, and to go, and to surprise ourselves in places that we end up.

That being said, if I understand what you’re asking, we had… this has been a dream of ours for a long time, and we always had contingency plans should you know — which we always do anyways. So all the movies ultimately when they are finished can feel like they were all interconnected and meant to be and planned far ahead, but can live and breath as individual movies that can be satisfying by themselves. But the ideas and ideals that make The Avengers still exist, and I think thats part of what makes this culmination will be: we’re seeing this version of the team doing this thing to save this universe, this galaxy, however you want to put it, and we’ll see where this goes. We’re still trying to sort out which parts. (laughs) Jeremy Latchem: The question I think going forward for Infinity War is: were those literal visions? Kevin Feige: We talk about that a lot actually, because when you have tables like that (lots of potential storylines, most unexplored in the finished film), and we go, What are we going to do with Howard?
