Scarlett Johansson teases “complex” Avengers: Age of Ultron

Scarlett Johansson has nothing but praise for her Avengers: Age of Ultron director, Joss Whedon.

Speaking during an interview with French website AlloCiné, the actress teased Marvel’s upcoming sequel, crediting the writer/director for the film’s “complex and cerebral” storyline, adding that the fans will love it.

The Black Widow actress enthused: “Joss Whedon, who is coming back for Avengers 2, has got his finger prints all over that project, certainly just as much as he did with Avengers, if not even more.

“He's in a place now where most directors would be extremely burdened by the task of having to top the last one. But for some reason, I think the universe is working in the right way for him. Joss seems extremely focused and he's in some ways less jaded. He really is in a good place to start this movie.

“He's crafted an even more complex and cerebral story this time around while still giving the fans those superhero elements that they love, the little Easter eggs, the explosions and the surprises, the little wink to the audience. He's got a very dry sense of humour as a person and as a writer.”

Age of Ultron will see The Avengers reassemble to battle a sentient robot.

“These characters are still in a completely bizarre set of circumstances,” added Johansson. “They're totally aware of what a strange team of misfits they are. It's pretty exciting I think the fans will not be disappointed. Unless we mess it up, which is always a possibility!”

Fans got their first glimpse of Avengers newcomers Aaron Taylor Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen this week as they were spotted on set in full costume as brother/sister mutant duo, Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch. Jeremy Renner was also seen in his new Hawkeye garb.

Avengers: Age of Ultron is scheduled for a May 2015 release.
