Go behind the scenes of Avengers: Age of Ultron with director Joss Whedon

Director Joss Whedon brought us onto the set of his Avengers follow-up, giving Cineplex an exclusive sneak peek at the superhero shenanigans in theatres right now with Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) was also on hand as our designated Avengers escort.

Yes, it was as awesome as it sounds.

Prop master Barry Gibbs – not associated with the Bee Gees – also walked us through the props department, giving us an exclusive look at the Avengers’ weapons, including Captain America’s (Chris Evans) shield and Thor’s (Chris Hemsworth) Mjölnir. It might not be a real “hammer of the gods,” but the Mjölnir prop still looks very, very heavy.

Avengers: Age of Ultron also stars Robert Downey, Jr., Scarlett Johansson, and Mark Ruffalo. It finally – finally! – hit theatres on May 1.
