With “Batman Vs Superman” delayed until 2016, Marvel owns the summer of 2015 with both “Avengers: Age of Ultron” and “Ant-Man.” In a recent interview with Parade, Scarlett Johansson, aka Black Widow, revealed that she has already read Joss Whedon’s script, which she called “dark” and “dry.”
When we spoke with Mark Ruffalo and one of the newer members of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Zoe Saldana, at the Sundance Film Festival, where they were promoting “Infinitely Polar Bear,” the Hulk actor agreed with Johansson’s estimation of the script and elaborated a bit.
“I would say that it’s better, it’s cooler, it’s more awesomer,” he said. “It’s a little bit darker, but also really has Joss Whedon’s incredibly, witty and sly sense of humor.”
Ruffalo’s character was obliviously one of the best elements of the original “Avengers,” but would he get the same kind of fan-favorite moments in the sequel? According to Ruffalo, fans shouldn’t worry. “[Bruce Banner] gets to do such great stuff,” he said.
