Joss Whedon Reveals Thor’s ‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron’ Subplot Was Larger Originally

Avengers: Age of Ultron

Minor spoilers follow, so in case you haven’t seen Avengers: Age of Ultron yet, then you might want to skip this story.

One of the most confusing subplots in Avengers: Age of Ultron was when Thor went looking for answers to figure out what Scarlet Witch’s hex meant to him. With the help of Erik Selvig, his search lead him to a mystical pool that is said to reveal the answers he was seeking, and he soon learns more about what the hex meant, and that the Mind Stone that lied within Loki’s specter.

The entire subplot felt forced and didn’t feel organic to the narrative. It turns out that there was so much more to it than what the press and audiences saw. In fact Joss Whedon reveals that the entire sequence was cut out thanks in part to how test audiences reacted to the scene. More on the story below.

Joss Whedon Wanted Spider-Man and Captain Marvel In ‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron’

Spider-Man and Captain Marvel

When Sony made the deal to share Spider-Man with Marvel many had hoped that he would be added to a post or mid-credit scene in Avengers: Age of Ultron. It may have been a possibility considering director Joss Whedon famously shot a post-credit scene on the film’s press day. But the deal said that he would make his first MCU appearance next year, possibly in Captain America: Civil War. The film’s release also confirmed that there wasn’t an extra scene after the credits, and that Spider-Man wasn’t in it.

However, Whedon really wanted to have the Webslinger in Avengers: Age of Ultron, and also wanted to have Captain Marvel in it too. See what he had to say below.

Black Widow

Every time Saturday Night Live gets a guest host who plays regularly in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, they just can’t resist getting in a dig or two at the superhero blockbuster factory via a well-produced and hilarious sketch.

In late 2012, they had on Jeremy Renner and the collaboration resulted in an Avengers spoof centered around the relative lameness of Hawkeye. Last September, Chris Pratt was more than happy to participate in one of the show’s Digital Shorts taking comedic aim at his recent star-making turn in the summer smash Guardians of the Galaxy. Most recently, Chris Hemsworth suited up as Thor for another Avengers sketch that portrayed the mighty God of Thunder as a glory-hogging party animal.

This weekend, Scarlett Johansson guest hosted Saturday Night Live to help promote the release of The Avengers: Age of Ultron, so naturally the show had to feature her in a Marvel-spoofing skit as her MCU character and Avenger extraordinaire Black Widow. True to SNL form, the sketch chose to stick it to Marvel Studios by showing how they would approach making a solo movie starring Johansson as the sultry superspy in the mock trailer for Black Widow: Age of Me.

Avengers: Age of Ultron Movie Review

Avengers: Age of Ultron
Director: Joss Whedon
Screenwriter: Joss Whedon
Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany, James Spader, Samuel L. Jackson
Walt Disney Pictures | Marvel Studios
Rated PG-13 | 141 Minutes
Release Date: May 1, 2015

“And there came a day, a day unlike any other, when Earth’s mightiest heroes were united against a common threat! On that day The Avengers were born — to fight foes no single hero could withstand!”

Written and directed by Joss Whedon, Avengers: Age of Ultron is the latest film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. As the fifth entry in Marvel’s second phase of films, Ultron follows the events of Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: Winter Soldier, and Guardians of the Galaxy. Our heroes have changed since the first time they assembled; S.H.I.E.L.D. is no more, Hydra has possession of Loki’s scepter, and the universe hangs in the balance as Thanos hunts down the Infinity Stones.

Age of Ultron begins with a raid on a Hydra outpost. After recovering some Chitauri technology from the base, Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) jumpstarts ULTRON, a global defense program that will act as “a suit of armor around the world.” Things go terribly wrong, of course, and The Avengers – Iron Man, Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) – must reassemble to save the planet from the villainous Ultron (James Spader).

Jeremy Renner Sings About Hawkeye’s Powers On ‘The Tonight Show’ (Video)

avengers age of ultron hawkeye

Sometimes the underrated characters turn out to be the ones we remember the most. Maybe Jeremy Renner hasn’t had much to do in the Marvel Cinematic Universe so far as the wisecracking ace archer Hawkeye, but early reviews of the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron have listed Renner’s performance and the greater attention paid to his character as one of the film’s better qualities.

Just to prove how cool he and the Hawk both really are, Renner paid a recent visit to The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon to sing a lovely song about the struggles he faces being the most unappreciated Avenger of them all, set to the tune of Ed Sheeran‘s “Thinking Out Loud.”

So, Are You Worthy of Wielding Thor’s Hammer? (Video)

Thor: The Dark World starring Chris Hemsworth

A group of enthusiastic pranksters going by the name of Trollstation out of the UK decided to find out just who thinks they are worthy of the power of the Mighty Thor. Just in time for this week’s U.S. release of Avengers: Age of Ultron (the film has been out a week in the UK), the prank basically entailed someone using some heavy duty adhesive to glue a replica of Mjolnir, the famed weapon of Thor, to some concrete in a public square. Passersby then tried to determine their worthiness by attempting to lift the “magic” hammer.

The concept is based on the famous inscription from the Marvel comics stating “Whosoever holds this hammer, if he be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor.” Of course the hammer now mentions that if he OR she be worthy, and in the video, plenty of women gave the challenge a try themselves.

From the looks of it, we puny mortals should probably just leave the heavy lifting to the Asgardians. That and apparently wearing a jacket seems to have an effect on our worthiness. Check out the video here below.
