In June, a bunch of press were able to visit the set of Avengers: Age of Ultron. During their visit a press panel was held with the cast and crew and now it's time to see what Robert Downey Jr. has to say about Age of Ultron and his character Tony Stark. He begins by talking about his first initial reaction to getting the script from Joss Whedon.
"Well, first of all, he’s a good writer, so I always tend to think generally speaking, 'Is this a movie I wanna see?' ‘cause all the fine points are gonna get worked out. At this point, as the Mayor of Marvel (laughter), there’s gonna be so many squeaky wheels along the way. Many of them practical and others just, you know, creative departures or differences or whatever. So to me, this kinda started with the third Iron Man which is like, 'All right, I’m gonna read the script. Who wrote it?' 'Shane Black.' 'I like it.' This time I think that from jump I thought, “Wow, this is really what Avengers: Age of Ultron should be. (I hadn’t figured it out beforehand) But I was done with the first draft and I said, 'Cool, I like it.' Kevin was like, 'Wait, what did you just say?' (laughter) I’m sure there was a bunch of iterations and things that changed over time. Then I read the second and then the third draft, and he’s continuing to write even as we’re setting up shots he’s going, 'I know what I want it to be or bringing back in a line that was in the first draft or whatever.' You’d think was like the ingredients to that salad dressing that makes girls go into labor. I guess it is."
