'The Avengers: Age of Ultron' director Joss Whedon says there's a "thin wall" between friendship and "chaos" for the superheroes

Joss Whedon admits there's a "thin wall" between friendship and "chaos" for The Avengers.

The 50-year-old film-maker, who directed the eagerly-awaited 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron', has hinted the new movie will see plenty of ups and downs between the various superhero characters.

He told Marvel: "There are two things you really want to see, I think, in the second Avengers. You want to see them getting along, and you want to see them not getting along.

"What we find is they can get along great, they're a team, but it's a thin wall between that and chaos. They do get kind of torn apart a little bit."

Meanwhile, Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson have been cast in the roles of Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver respectively, and Whedon has revealed their additions will prove crucial to the movie.

He explained: "I wanted to be able to shoot something that was kind of poetic and strange - and her magic and his speed and the way they are and the way they hate The Avengers - it just adds so much to the palette. The two of them are just ridiculously great too."

Ultron, an artificial intelligence created by Tony Stark (Downey Jr) to keep the peace, goes rogue and decides to kill off the Avengers. Barely logical but impressively entertaining superhero fun; Johansson and Olsen are central to the action and Whedon's script is strong, snappy and irreverent, but it doesn't have much…
