AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON

During a Reddit AMA session, Mark Ruffalo responded to criticisms lobbed at director Joss Whedon regarding the storyline involving the actor’s character Bruce Banner and Black Widow.

I think it’s sad. Because I know how Joss feels about women, and I know that he’s made it a point to create strong female characters. I think part of the problem is that people are frustrated that they want to see more women, doing more things, in superhero movies, and because we don’t have as many women as we should yet, they’re very, very sensitive to every single storyline that comes up right now. But I think what’s beautiful about what Joss did with Black Widow – I don’t think he makes her any weaker, he just brings this idea of love to a superhero, and I think that’s beautiful.
If anything, Black Widow is much stronger than Banner. She protects him. She does her job, and basically they begin to have a relationship as friends, and I think it’s a misplaced anger. I think that what people might really be upset about is the fact that we need more superhuman women. The guys can do anything, they can have love affairs, they can be weak or strong and nobody raises an eyebrow. But when we do that with a woman, because there are so few storylines for women, we become hyper-critical of every single move that we make because there’s not much else to compare it to.

So I know Joss really well. I know what his values are. And I think it’s sad, because in a lot of ways, there haven’t been as many champions in this universe as Joss is and will continue to be. And I know it hurts him. I know it’s heavy on him. And the guy’s one of the sweetest, best guys, and I know him – as far as any man can be a champion for women, he is that.

So it’s been a little disheartening.

But I also see how much people love that aspect of it. There’s an equal amount of people who find the love interest between Banner and Black Widow to be a big standout. And it’s very satisfying to people. So it’s a movie. People are going to have their opinions. And that’s actually a great thing. The fact that this is a debate that’s coming out of this movie is probably a positive thing.

I just don’t think that people should get personal with Joss, because he really is – of anyone – an advocate for women. He’s a deeply committed feminist.

According to the Wrap, “Avengers: Age of Ultron” is outpacing its 2012 predecessor at the worldwide box office. While the new film is lagging a little behind “Avengers” domestically (the 2012 film’s eight day total was $244M compared to “Ultron’s” $217.6M), it’s already earned $478M abroad compared to the original’s $425M.

AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR

Disney has announced that the two part “Avengers: Infinity War” epic will exclusively use the new Imax/Arri 2D digital camera, thus making it the first Hollywood feature film to be shot using an Imax camera and using its exclusive aspect ratio. Directors Joe and Anthony Russo will first use the camera to film select action sequences in “Captain America: Civil War,” which begins production soon.

“We felt that the best way to exploit the scale and scope required to close out the final chapter of these three phases, was to be the first films shot entirely on the Imax/Arri Digital camera,” said the Russo brothers in a statement.

POWERS

Also getting a second season is PlayStation’s inaugural series “Powers.” Sony informed the Hollywood Reporter that the show will return in 2016.

The announcement did not mention that the show will be returning without showrunner Charlie Huston. Huston revealed the news on his website citing his departure as the result of creative differences.

“Not mentioned in the Variety story announcing the second season of ‘Powers’ is the fact that I will not be staying with the show,” Huston wrote. “These kinds of changes are common in TV, and usually based on several factors, but this one boils down to the old saw ‘creative differences’ … I’m certain fans of the show can look forward to an outstanding second season,” Huston continued. “For myself, I had a great time, and I wouldn’t change a thing about my experience bringing ‘Powers’ to TV.”
