American actor, Robert Downey Jr. talks about Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron script & Tony Stark’s relationship with Ultron during press visit at London set.
Speaking with Collider, he was asked to talk about Tony and Ultron’s relationship & if he is reflection of Tony’s dark side, Downey replied: “No, it’s not really that.
It’s more… It’s so funny too, I always revisit the concept that every impulse starts off as a positive impulse.
Even impulse to kill starts off as an impulse to change, to rail against, to challenge the authority in a very direct and permanent solution to a temporary problem kind of way.
I think because Tony’s solution is what becomes the problem in a way that’s really kind of interesting and also ties in to the Vision.”
He further adds, “Again that to me was… there was a Rubik’s Cube to how not to make these things have an act three that you’re going, ‘I really hope you like acts one and two because now we’re just going to do all this stuff.’
I think it was the same thing in Iron Man 3 – act three was the strongest act. I think that this is really gunning for that sort of thing, because, you know, I love movies. I love these kinds of movies.
So I feel like I’m just a very tolerant kind of consumer with these things, but I also feel like the half-life of – if you noticed just how flooded the market is becoming and likely to become potentially even more so – I think that there has to be a bit of a transcendence of formula.
And so without giving too much away I think, and why I generally just kind of like stamped it when the first draft came in, is because I thought, ‘Oh wow, it didn’t fall into that trap.’
And I read the last page and I got chills for a reason I definitely can’t explain. [Laughs] But there’s a lot of new talent coming in, with Aaron Taylor Johnson and obviously Lizzie Olsen.
Just even seeing Paul Bettany within a thousand miles of the set where we’re shooting is just like, ‘Wow. This is going to be really cool.'”
