The Marvel juggernaut should keep growing strong for at least another two years or so, and this year we’ve got The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Guardians of the Galaxy, as well as Avengers Age of Ultron coming in 2015.
There is of course the concern that Spider-Man 2 will have too many villains, which was a big problem with Spider-Man 3, but as director Marc Webb told Collider, “We’re aware of those movies and the complaints people had. The main villain is Electro. Every other villain emerges around that.
“We were careful to make sure the stories entertained,” Webb continued. “You had to make sure to create obstacles that were difficult to overcome. We wanted to make the physical and emotional obstacles difficult. Rhino is in it for four minutes so it’s a legitimate comparison, but when you see the movie, I’m confident.”
In the meanwhile, to whet the appetite of fans, Chris Hemsworth also talked to Collider about Avengers Age of Ultron. Now granted, the guy’s not going to say the movie’s going to be a disaster if it’s not going well, and he couldn’t speak about it at length, but at the Wizard World Comic-Con, Hemsworth said, “Everything in [Age of Ultron] is ramped up. It kind of blew me away reading [the script]. I don’t know how Joss Whedon does it, but everyone has gone up another notch and the whole thing is bigger and more exciting and crazier. Yeah, he’s a genius.”
Hemsworth will start working on the shoot two months from now, and he said, “I’m really excited to get back on set. I’m excited to get back together with everyone and catch up.”
