I still really like Age of Ultron, but it disappointed me for a couple reasons. 1. Even though the MCU is all connected and always leading to something bigger, Age of Ultron went a bit overboard. It's an Avengers movie, it doesn't get bigger than this. I never felt Ultron was all that threatening because they kept alluding to something even bigger going on and Joss Whedon tried to handle so many storylines. If they would have focused on Ultron more, that would've been better. Sprinkle in a few easter eggs and use the end credit scene to set up the future. 2. Joss Whedon. He did great work with the first movie, I think we're starting to take for granted how Marvel has connected all these characters that started back in 2008 and has plans as far as 2025 apparently. However, I'm glad Whedon is taking a step back from directing. Way too many corny jokes in this one, Ant-Man was a better balance and Marvel knew what kind of movie Guardians was. Whedon did too much, too much humor and the news about no director's cut is disappointing since he apparently had to rid almost an hour's worth of footage.
