According to MTV on Jan. 19, in an interview with Mark Ruffalo and Zoe Saldana for their film "Infinitely Polar Bear", Ruffalo gave high praise to Joss Whedon and his film "The Avengers: Age of Ultron". Upon reading Whedon's script, he said found the story to be darker.

"I would say that it's better, it's cooler, it's more awesomer," he said. "It's a little bit darker, but also really has Joss Whedon's incredibly, witty and sly sense of humor".

Speaking of sense of humor, it appears that Ruffalo has one, he jokingly commented on his 45 year old "roll" of belly that may need addressing for the role, but that remains to be seen.

Saldana acknowledged she would be in the next three "Avatar" sequels and also is starring in James Gunn's "Guardians of the Galaxy". Saldana felt that her character in the James Cameron film would make her return due to the fact she knew it about it long before the public.

"I knew. I knew for a while. Then it was confirmed last fall when they approached us, already telling us these are the dates, lock yourself, we would like you to start getting ready around this time".

She even made a trip to New Zealand which is the location in which all three movies will be shot and to scope out the work that Cameron had completed.

"I went down to the studio that they've been setting up for the past three years. It was wonderful. Jim took us and gave us a tour of all the reference pictures, telling us the stories. I haven't been able to read the scripts. They're still working on them. We kind of get choked up. [Cameron] gets emotional telling us about the story. I get emotional hearing about it, so I'm looking forward to it".

"The Avengers: Age of Ultron" is scheduled to be released on May 1, 2015.
