Joss Whedon Addresses Bridging Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Avengers: Age of Ultron

In the shuffle and madness of San Diego Comic-Con, this one kind of got lost, but Avengers: Age of Ultron director Joss Whedon was present for a short Q&A session at Nerd HQ where he was asked about the upcoming film. Specifically, Whedon was asked how he will have Captain America focus on the threat of Ultron in next year’s sequel when this year’s “The Winter Soldier” ended with him searching for Bucky Barnes.

“The fact is, Ultron is a clear and present danger and Bucky’s in the wind. We do mention the fact that that’s his sort of primary thing, but he’s also working with The Avengers too. We’re not ignoring it, but he definitely has to deal with a mad 8 foot robot, because that’s one of those things that you put it off and it just gets worse.”

Captain America: The Winter Soldier will be available on DVD and Blu-ray September 9, while Avengers: Age of Ultron will debut in theaters on May 1, 2015.
