Talking to India Times, Tony Stark/Iron Man actor Robert Downey Jnr has gone into the place that he and Captain America are at at the beginning of Avengers: Age of Ultron.
It seems that Stark has given himself fully to the Avengers team and is happy to let Cap be the boss, although we know that, with Civil War not far off, this won’t last:
“There are really only two relationships in Tony’s life in which he’s been willing to assume a lower status and one’s with Pepper obviously, equal footing, and the other is with Cap. It’s always whoever does the job best should probably do that job and Tony’s bringing a lot to the table and Cap has the most experience. It’s also nice to feel like there’s someone under whose tutelage you become better at what you have to do and no one’s more battle-seasoned than Cap.”
Like everyone else, we can’t wait to see the journey that everyone takes to get from this point to the point of all-out war.
In other Avengers news, Joss Whedon himself has confirmed that Ultron’s running time is one monute shorter than that of the first movie at 142 minutes. Does this include post credit scenes? Well, we’re not sure but probably…
“When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.
The team must reassemble to defeat James Spader as Ultron, a terrifying technological villain hell-bent on human extinction. Along the way, they confront two mysterious and powerful newcomers, Wanda Maximoff, played by Elizabeth Olsen, and Pietro Maximoff, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and meet an old friend in a new form when Paul Bettany becomes Vision.”
