It's release date is over a year away, but details are already emerging about the sequel "The Avengers: Age of Ultron."
In a recent interview with Parade magazine, Scarlett Johansson, who plays Black Widow, hinted, "I think the script is dark and it's dry. It's got this amazing one-liner, glass-cutting sense of humor."
However, it's not going to be another unoriginal money-making attempt trying to capitalize on the success of the first film. She adds, "Obviously the script is very cerebral. It doesn't lose that exciting comic book aspect that people enjoyed in the first film, but it's smart and it feels like the next installment. It doesn't feel like a rehashing, it feels like these characters are moving forward, plotlines are moving forward."
Other Marvel news reports that Thomas Kretschmann has signed on to play Baron Wolfgang von Strucker, a villain and head of HYDRA. "The Avengers: Age of Ultron" is scheduled for release on May 1, 2015.
