Dir. Joss Whedon
Following the most monumental super hero team-up in cinematic history isn’t a simple task, but if Joss Whedon hit it out of the park before, why couldn’t he do it again? Choosing a completely different storyline for the Avengers, an alien invasion won’t figure into the plot for The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Instead, Whedon keeps his sequel to The Avengers Earthbound with a peacekeeping program headed by Tony Stark/ Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) going awry, creating the sentient technology, Ultron (voiced by James Spader), and his plan to eradicate humanity. The Incredible Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Black Widow (Scarlett Johannson), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), and Captain America (Chris Evans) also look to return and save the day with Iron Man.
