Joss Whedon Talks THAT 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' Shocker - Spoilers Ahead!

The Avengers: Age of Ultron is set to achieve the highest grossing opening weekend of all time, so let’s talk about the shocking moment at the end of the film.

There has been tons of speculation over the past few months that one of the superheroes in the film was going to die and it was true.

Director Joss Whedon has spoken out about why the death scene happened in an interview with Merlot Mommy. You can read that after the cut!

In the film, Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, but things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron (voice of James Spader) emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for a global adventure.

Quicksilver/Pietro Maximoff Died

In the final fight scene, Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) sacrifices himself to save Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) from a sea of bullets being fired by Ultron and his army.

Here is what Joss had to say:

“The first meeting I had with [Aaron], I said this is my plan is to have”we always were ready for the idea that the Disney brass would come down and say, ‘excuse us. Please leave the beautiful man in the franchise movie.’ But it became clear certainly after we shot it, how well it worked, so then it was just my job to spend the entire movie trying to convince everyone that Hawkeye was definitely going to die, and that turned into a really fun game.

Like, because I played every trope. Every, oh, look, you know, we’re not all going to make it through this and we cut to him looking at his family, and I’m just like, ‘How many ways can I be, ‘Oh, he’s safe. He’s on the, oh, he has to get off the boat. Oh, he’s”‘ and I just wanted to like, you know, pull the switch out.’ So yeah, that was the plan, but we did sort of keep it in our, in our pockets. We’re like maybe we’ll have to do a take backsies, but then he got shot a lot of times.”

  • lilah_lilah

    Thanks for putting “spoilers ahead” while having spoilers right in the title…

  • Jessica Johanna

    Thanks God I have already watched the movie. The title itself it is a spoiler.

  • Michele V

    You do realise that implying–not even implying, just outright explicitly stating that somebody died is a spoiler itself? People who haven’t seen it yet will go in now expecting somebody to die. Idiot.

    no seriously. who the fuck was this stupid to do this?

  • Max

    I don’t know about you people complaining about the “spoiler title” but this has already been hinted at before the movie came out. That an Avenger was going to die.


    exactly…saying that an avenger is going to die is a spoiler in itself…. good thing I saw the movie before reading this.

  • potato

    i already saw age of ultron the day it came out and I was really sad to see quicksilver die I was actually shocked. I thought it would of been great to explore his backstory along with his sister and added a nice dynamic to the avengers

  • tia maria

    Lol at the commenters saying the title of the post is a spoiler when in fact in the context of the film Quicksilver is not an avenger so none of them die in the movie.

  • Sanrio76

    Thanks for spoiling the movie for me Jared! I saw the old title unfortunately a half hour before the movie and ended up worrying the whole time about who it was going to be. I had actively avoided all spoilers about Ultron since the movie was announced and it was all ruined by this lousy one.

  • Jon M’Shulla

    He is probably not dead.

    1)Speedsters heal quickly.
    2)They showed a healing machine tech at the beginning of the show.SHIELD controlled tech.
    3) Infinity Gems involved.
    4) Wandas full powers are off the scale. Reality creating-wise.
    5) She didn’t seem really bereaved at the ending did she?
    6) Most importantly he signed a multi film deal.

    Voila. Never fear.

  • Jon M’Shulla

    Besides he signed a multi contract deal….

  • Jon M’Shulla

    Who cares about the spoiler now….Age of Ultron is a great movie. Vision was outstanding. Wanda and Pietro amazing.So much action galore. I loved it. Can’t await a second viewing.
