Cap And Widow Spotted In New AGE OF ULTRON Set Videos; Kevin Feige Teases Us About Hawkeye’s Whereabouts
Production on Joss Whedon‘s Avengers: Age Of Ultron is still going full steam ahead in Seoul, South Korea, and several news stations in and around the filming locations have been on hand to capture some scenes involving Captain America (Chris Evans and his stunt double) and Black Widow (a stunt double). We’ve seen a few brief glimpses at Cap‘s new suit, but these videos give us one of our clearest looks yet. We also get to see Widow‘s rather sleek and sexy new motorcycle. It’s black and red, of course. If all of those Age of Ultron set videos weren’t enough for you, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige teases us about the upcoming film and how it ties into Captain America: The Winter Soldier. More specifically, he teases us regarding Hawkeye‘s whereabouts. And yes, you can click the image below to see it much, much larger.
Speaking with Crave Online in a rather spoilery interview about The Winter Soldier, Feige was asked why Hawkeye wasn’t involved in the story. Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner) is an Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. and an Avenger, so many thought he would be interested in all the goings on regarding The Winter Soldier and his attacks. Feige says we will get an explanation of why he wasn’t there:
We will discover, later, the answers to that question. But it really came down to how many players can you have on the field at this time? We really wanted to bring in Falcon, we really wanted to team [Captain America] up with Black Widow, we really wanted Fury to have more of a part than he’s ever had in any of the other movies before. We wanted, ever so briefly, to introduce Sharon Carter. And we had a fun place for Maria Hill to be involved. So we didn’t want to just have, “Hey, I’m Hawkeye! Hey, I’m Iron Man!” We want to avoid the brief cameos of the week.
Following up on that, the Marvel Mastermind was asked if he was worried that the introduction of news characters in Age of Ultron meant that other characters would have to take a backseat when it come to getting into the action and how important their roles will be. Feige says that is a concern, but he thinks Joss Whedon has a great handle on things:
Well yes, not every character from every movie is going to be in Age of Ultron, for sure. But Joss [Whedon] is excited and, for the characters you haven’t seen since the first Avengers – like Hawkeye, like Hulk – there’s a reason for that, and that gets showcased quite prominently in Age of Ultron.
