The latest issue of Empire Magazine has a featured article on The Avengers 2 where Marvel Studios president and producer Kevin Feige and director Joss Whedon talk about Ultron as well as the Hulkbuster Iron Man suit.

Regarding Ultron, Whedon offers that Ultron may want to start a new beginning, but it will come at a cost.

“It’s more epic and in other ways it’s more noirish and suspect and devious and specific. Ultron…he’s got a touch of the apocalypse in him.”

Feige also added:

Ultron was the villain Joss wanted, from midway through production on the first film, to have serious repercussions for The Avengers. We unveiled a poster here which is nothing but Ultron after Ultron after Ultron clawing at the beginning to defeat all of our Avengers. That’s what a lot of this movie is about."

And regarding the Hulk vs. Hulkbuster Iron Man battle that has been teased in concept art and set props, Whedon stated the following:

The Hulkbuster is from after my time [as a reader], but even I knew what a big deal it was. It makes sense because there’s no one who can really go up against Hulk, but more importantly, those guys are best friends, so what that battle is and what it means is fascinating to me.
