Scarlett Johansson on ‘The Avengers: The Age of Ultron’ Script

Scarlett Johansson on ‘The Avengers: The Age of Ultron’ Script

“Well, we can expect the Avengers. Joss [Whedon], 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.”

In short, it’s everything you would expect from Joss Whedon.

Personally what I’m hoping for is something a little heavier than The Avengers. I want all the same dramady to be there, but I want it to be tempered with a bit more gravity. Yes, I’m asking for it to be darker even though I feel like the dark and gritty stuff is normally a bit overplayed these days. I don’t think that will hurt the next Avengers film.

Is it 2015 yet?
