Although we've still got three major Marvel Studios releases between now and then, it's hard to not already start getting excited for the end of "Phase Two" when The Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters on May 1, 2015. Ever since the title was revealed at Comic-Con, fan speculation has run rampant as to what qualities writer/director Joss Whedon might be borrowing from Ultron's 45-year history. Today, EW has an update from the man himself.

"As a character I love [Ultron] because hes so pissed off, Whedon says. "...I knew right away what I wanted to do with him. Hes always trying to destroy the Avengers, goddamn it. Hes got a bee in his bonnet. Hes not a happy guy, which means hes an interesting guy. Hes got pain. And the way that manifests is not going to be standard robot stuff. So well take away some of those powers because, at some point, everybody becomes magic, and I already have someone whos a witch.

Whedon's comments also seem to confirm that the Scarlet Witch will indeed be magical in nature, something that Whedon has more than his fair share of experience writing about.

Although Robert Downey Jr. is, at the moment, the only confirmed cast member for the ensemble sequel, expect quite a few new and familiar names to be joining the list as the project gears up for production beginning in February 2014.
