“…you’re going to watch him (The Hulk) in this long take, full-frame, the whole time,” says director Joss Whedon.
The most-anticipated sequel to the Avengers 2012 movie, Avengers: Age of Ultron will be open in US theaters on May 1. And one thing that fans should be anticipating in the movie is more screen time for the team’s “Green Goliath” (played by Oscar-nominated actor, Mark Ruffalo).
A lot of critics and fans alike pointed out that The Hulk had the least amount of screen time in the first film (even a MAD skit was made to poke fun on the fact). Now, Whedon is telling the good news that audiences will “watch him in this long take, full-frame, the whole time!”
“There is more Hulk in this movie than there was in the last film….What I love is we have the opportunity, because we went in with this mission statement, to shoot the Hulk like a character in a movie, and not like a ‘Look what we’ve got!’ We have ‘overs’ – blurry ‘Hulk’s over there!’ bits, very quick shots. Everything isn’t, ‘We built the Hulk so for God’s sake you’re going to watch him in this long take, full-frame, the whole time!’ We really got to make him one of the characters in the movie. And that was a gift.”
The director is also doing a new style in his direction. Making the movie look a bit like a documentary!
“…I was running a lot of cameras, I was shooting long lenses, which I don’t usually do.”
Because of this updates and changes, Age of Ultron will be huge as expected!
