According to Comic Book Movie on Dec. 7, Director of Photography Seamus McGarvey will not be returning in "The Avengers: Age of Ultron" sequel. Lately he's been working on "Godzilla" and currently shooting "Fifty Shades of Grey", but this time cinematographer Ben Davis will be taking the camera helm in Joss Whedon's sequel.
Davis has been known for collaborating with others in show business such as Matthew Vaughn in the film "Kick-Ass", "Stardust", and "Layer Cake". Davis' main reason for having landed the job to work with Joss Whedon in "The Avengers: Age of Ultron" was due to his collaboration with director James Gunn on "Guardians of the Galaxy". Apparently, Gunn gave Davis a good reference.
“I did everything I could to let Joss know how great I thought [Davis] was. And, of course, Joss was able to see first hand what an amazing job Ben was doing on Guardians".
Gunn then took action to elaborate on what a cinematographer's role is when it comes to film projects and then compared notes that entailed Davis' job performance. He also gave great praise to Chris Pratt's role as Rocket Raccon in "Guardians of the Galaxy".
"The Avengers: Age of Ultron" is scheduled to be released on May 1, 2015.
