Shortly after the Avengers: Age of Ultron cast left Hall H at Comic-Con Saturday night, I got to conduct video interviews with most of them in the press room.  While the interviews had to be conducted in groups due to how many reporters were in attendance, we still managed to get a lot of great information from the cast.  You can watch my Paul Rudd and Mark Ruffalo interviews by clicking the links.

During the interview with Chris Evans, he talked about the process of making Avengers: Age of Ultron, the great Joss Whedon dialogue, if they’re going to address where the other Avengers were during their stand-alone movies, if he had one Avenger to help him out in Snowpiercer who would he pick, and more.  Hit the jump to watch what Chris Evans had to say at Comic-Con.

Chris Evans:

  • If he could have one Avenger help him out from the back of the Snowpiercer who would he pick?
  • The great dialogue between the Avengers.
  • Are they going to address where the other Avengers were during their stand alone movie?

    “Do you guys address where the other superheroes are during the other heroes’ solo movies?” **facepalm**

    Evans handled that question about as well as anyone could.

    • Bifash

      He always does. Apart from Frosty’s questions, most of the others’ questions seemed to be quite inane.

        Check Youtube for other interviews, because sometime you get better questions asked.

        Yeah, Evans is one of the best interviews out there. Pity that there are so few, decent interviewers…

      Chris Hardwick did an amazingly bad job with the avengers in hall H. Almost none of the questions were the least bit interesting.

        I consider it a side effect of the information saturation age. Info-wise, there’s no benefit to a studio to wait until Comic-Con to release casting news, and Marvel’s been full tilt marketing Guardians to raise awareness, and doing that has involved releasing lots of future release news so that Guardians can be mentioned in opening paragraphs a la “Though Marvel has Guardians of the Galaxy opening next week, they’ve just announced (etc. etc) for upcoming feature (etc.)” The only thing that makes sense as a Comic-Con exclusive anymore is footage, and that’s what they gave people.

        I definitely think that ComicCon kind of felt like it was collapsing under its own weight this year. I don’t think DC and Marvel want to make big announcements at CC any longer because it gets drowned out by all the other announcements.

        So footage is fine, and big announcements are probably not something we should expect any longer. But I think the main draw should still be getting some insight from the actors and to build up excitement. So Hardwick asking everyone “Is this exciting for you, or REALLY exciting for you” felt like a waste of time. Just a bit too much of his inner fanboy shining through, I guess.

      Uh, you mean the one question that produced by far the most interesting response in the video? That question?

      • http://www.JustPressPlay.net Lex Walker

        Pretty much every question before and after that was better. The response to that was basically “You’re going to be that guy? Really?” And his response was 100% the correct response.

      • milo

        That was such a classic response, I was glad it was asked.

        “If you want to be one of those guys…”

      • http://www.JustPressPlay.net Lex Walker

        Yeah, I guess I’m just tired of hearing that gripe. I mean, if you can accept aliens posing as Norse gods, super soldiers, gamma radiation rage monsters, robobatman, etc. but you get caught up on “hey why doesn’t so and so help out?” then you’re being awfully selective in how you’re applying that suspension of disbelief.

    Great honest answer about the solo movies. We don’t want half those movies spent making up excuses of why the rest of the team can’t come to the rescue. It would’ve been easy to BS his way through that, but he took it head on.

  • GrimReaper07

    Why did Mark Ellis ask about Snowpiercer if he didn’t even review it?

    Personally, I don’t have a problem with the whole issue, mostly because the action happened so fast.

    Consider Thor. Yup, the evil Snow Demons or whatever they were showed up in London. But Thor thwarted them pretty quickly and there’s no way Iron Man or Cap would have made it from New York to London in time to make any difference.

    Iron Man is trickier, but as I said elsewhere, SHIELD is an international organization and probably has various jurisdictional restrictions (they’ve referenced these on occasion on the TV show). The FBI does not get involved with my stolen bicycle, for example, unless it’s taken across state lines. Considering DC turf-wars between FBI, CIA, Secret Service, etc., I’m sure an organization like SHIELD has plenty of hoops to jump through to get involved in something like a missing president.

    Cap is again a matter of distance. Keep in mind that, to the outside world, SHIELD launched a couple of helicarriers who then started shooting at each other and crashed. If Tony were in LA, he was 2300 miles away. Let’s say he could fly at Mach 3–about the speed of an SR-71 Blackbird–he would still be a little over an hour away!

      Makes perfect sense. Not to mention that Thor is literally on another planet most of the time, and Banner is likely off as far away and unreachable as he can be. Cap is around but his powers don’t include flying or super speed, so he still would have to be flown to a location. Really Stark is the only one who can get long distances relatively quickly, and if he’s a thousand miles away or more it could still be hours for him to arrive.
