HEADLINES

AGE OF ULTRON

Joss Whedon Apologizes for Age of Ultron melt down
http://comicbook.com/2016/04/19/joss-whedon-says-his-avengers-age-of-ultron-comments-were-a-diss/

“Ultron, I’m very proud of. There were things that did not meet my expectations of myself and then I was so beaten down by the process. Some of that was conflicting with Marvel, which is inevitable and a lot of that was about my own work and I was also exhausted, and we right away went and did publicity. I created the narrative — wherein I’m not quite accomplished at– and people just ran with (about Ultron) ‘Well it’s OK, it could be better, but it’s not Joss’ fault’ and I think that did a disservice to the movie, and to the studio and to myself. Ultimately, it wasn’t the right way to be because I’m very proud about it.”

“The things about it that are wrong frustrate me enormously, but I got to make an absurdly personal movie about humanity and what it means in a very esoteric and bizarre ways for hundreds of millions of dollars. The fact that Marvel gave me that opportunity twice is so bonkers and beautiful and the fact that I come off as a miserable failure is also bonkers, but not in a cute way.”
     — Joss Whedon

DISCUSSION

MCU PHASE 4

Marvel Phase 4 Distinctly Different
http://comicbook.com/2016/04/16/marvel-phase-4-will-be-distinctly-different/

“I think you look at comics as a guide. Although certain titles may get relaunched or rebooted, the narrative exists on a never-ending continuum.”
— Feige

“I think there will be a finality to moments of Phase Three, as well as new beginnings that will mark a different, a very different, a distinctively different chapter in what will someday be a complete first saga made up of three phases.”  
— Feige

“Things always get deconstructed, right? You build things up and people enjoy the experiences you’ve built up. But then you kind of reach an apex or you reach a climax, a moment where you go, ‘This structure is really going to start to be repetitious if we do this again, so what do we do now?’ So now, you deconstruct it. We’re in the deconstruction phase with Civil War and leading into Infinity War, which are the culmination films.”
— Joe Russo

DOCTOR STRANGE

Doctor Strange Teaser Barely Scratches the Surface
https://www.geekgirlauthority.com/screenwriter-admits-doctor-strange-teaser-barely-showed-film/

“This teaser is, it’s the definition of a teaser. You are only getting a like a small taste of just how crazy this movie gets. We have only just the slightest hints of magic in there. There are major characters you don’t even glimpse in that trailer, there is so much stuff going on, that this thing is just nutty, the stuff they let us do, I can’t believe they let us do it. Like, just, … Kevin Feige and other producers like Stephen Broussard would be “How can we make it crazier?” and I was like “Aw right, let’s play around.” It’s just a hell of an experience.”
      — C. Robert Carghill

“The key is, the main thing about Doctor Strange is that he’s got such a great story, he’s got such a great arc … he’s just such a cool character, but essentially it’s got a little something for everybody in the way that Dr Strange has a really great character arc, and is very much about characters. But it’s a superhero story, but it’s also a fantasy film, so if you’r like “Man, I don’t want to watch people fly around and shoot lasers at each other and just watch robots hit each other, I want to watch a fantasy film, I want something like Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings, you get a whole taste of that with Dr. Strange because it’s all very, it’s a very magical fantasy universe, but at the same time it plays by some of the superhero tropes that people enjoy.”
      — C. Robert Carghill
