5 reasons we need an extended cut of Avengers: Age of Ultron

I’ve seen it twice now and those 141 minutes of Avengers: Age of Ultron fly by way too quickly.

Avengers-Age-of-Ultron-China-Fan-Event-Joss-Whedon-Robert-Robert-Downey-Jr-Mark-Ruffalo-002In his scorching the Marvel Universe bride-burning tour, Joss Whedon has said there’s a lot more he wanted to pack into the movie including a cameo by Spider-Man and Captain Marvel.

Avengers-Cast-on-Jimmel-Kimmel-LivePerhaps teasing the side break down for next year’s ‘Captain America: Civil War,’ Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo and Jeremy Renner took on Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson and Chris Hemsworth in their most heated matchup yet — playing Family Feud on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
