At last weekend’s New York City press day, I landed an exclusive video interview with Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson.  They talked about their favorite moments from shooting Godzilla, going to Japan to promote the movie and the country’s culture that embraces its mythology, their reaction to seeing the finished film for the first time, the positive reviews, and more.  Of course with Olsen and Taylor-Johnson currently working on Joss Whedon’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, they also talked about working with Whedon, the set photos, singing multi-picture deals with Marvel, and more.  Hit the jump to watch.
