Though ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ may not have been the strongest offering from the Marvel Cinematic Universe in recent history, it still managed to bring some interesting things to the table, including the additions of Elizabeth Olsen, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and James Spader as the Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver, and the mechanical menace Ultron. And now with the home release of Joss Whedon’s second film at the House of Ideas quickly approaching, a few behind the scenes featurettes and an extended scene has hit the web in anticipation for the October sale date.
/Film recently shared three featurettes that focused on the making of ‘Age of Ultron’, specifically the sort of behind the scenes magic that went into incorporating the Maximoffs and Ultron into the MCU. In the first video, the cast and crew talk about the various powers of Wanda and Pietro and the process of bringing them to life. Then, the following two videos focused on Spader and how his fellow cast members interacted with him as the antagonistic AI. You can check out all three below:
Finally, we have an extended scene featuring Captain America and Maria Hill. Here we find the Star Spangled Avenger and the high-ranking S.H.I.E.L.D. official discussing their Sokovian foes before Earth’s Mightiest Heroes takes them on face to face. Unlike the version that we saw in the theatrical cut, it seems like Whedon may have been planting the seeds of dissension in Cobie Smulders’ Hill ahead of the upcoming ‘Captain America: Civil War’. As True Believers familiar with the source material know, Agent Hill plays an integral part in that comic book storyline when she sides with Tony Stark during the institution of the Superhuman Registration Act. Take a look at the scene yourself courtesy of Comic Book Movie and see if you can spot the faint beginnings of animosity on the part of Maria Hill:
