Joss Whedon: Avengers 2 newcomers are 'textured'

Jun 18 2013, 10:24am CDT | by

Joss Whedon says 'Avengers 2' newcomers Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch will be ''textured''.

The director hinted the new villainous additions to the Marvel sequel about a team of crime-fighting superheroes will cause havoc for the motley crew - but will have a nicer side to them too.

Speaking in a podcast for Empire magazine, he teased: ''Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch are very close to my heart because they were Avengers the whole time I was reading the book as a kid. Sometimes they were evil but sometimes they were good. They're very ... textured, they're very different from everybody else in the mix.

''They're not there to make things easier on The Avengers but what we do with the group once we've got them is squeeze. The fun I'm having doing that is probably unseemly.''

Joss - who confirmed Tom Hiddleston's villainous Asgardian god Loki won't be featuring in the follow-up film - also updated fans on the script's progress, revealing it already feels like the right tone has been set after the first draft.

He said: ''I've turned in a first draft. The story is very set, everybody's on board with the exact movie I'm trying to make which is what worked the first time. I said, 'I want to make this movie, a Marvel version of this movie.' And they said, 'Yay', and never looked back. Well they said, 'Maybe the tone', or, 'Maybe this structure' but once we had it, we had it. And I feel like we're there with 'Avengers 2' which is really important.

''There's still fine tuning to do on the script. There are many things that can be 'plussed' and be better and also, there's some science in it, which means I have scenes where someone says, 'Science the sciency science.' So I'm like, 'I'll fix that later.' ''

AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON Trailer Images Offer First Look at Ultron and the Hulkbuster Armor

Oct 22 2014 4:15pm CDT | Source: Collider

Marvel is taking an odd yet not entirely surprising approach to unveiling the first Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer by debuting it on ABC next week during the new episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (synergy!).  It’s an understandable effort to boost the ratings of the low-rated series, and I’m sure the trailer will be online shortly afterwards.  But if you can’t wait until next week to see the first footage from director Joss Whedon’s sequel, newl ...
