Well the thing with AoU is that arguably it's already undone everything to do with his PTSD that IM3 resolved (though a charitable interpretation would be that Tony wasn't as over it all as he thought) and then didn't fix anything apart from Tony realising that his current way of doing things isn't the right one. It most certainly did nothing to make him back away from a world in armour ideology.

I think the events of The Winter Soldier and to a degree AoU have set Steve up well enough for an anti-Registration stance as part of his "any attempt at pre-emptive action is wrong" mindset. Ultron getting out of hand may finally have shaken Tony out of his attempts to solo looking after the world but he's still carrying around enough gut wrenching terror from the events of the first Avengers film and guilt from the 2nd -- though tempered by the realisation that a weaponised person was in part responsible -- that he's still in 'put the world in armour' mode and backing a pro-Index movement brought on by Jiaying's declaration of war.

Twist at the end of the episode was well set up, but I have a sneaking suspicion that the little medalion case will have had a bug in it that recorded Gonzales' murder.

Does it turn out to be the Iliad (which was my assumption when I saw it)?

Hopefully as someone who gets blown up at Stamford or wherever it was that kicked off that whole odious storyline.

Janus is going to sacrifice her prisoner to her goddess come morning -- pretty much as a bit of fluff for her entry into Verdant Apothecary -- but is otherwise good to go.

From the Empire podcast with Joss Whedon.

  • Marvel never planned for Captain America and Black Widow to be romantically involved, but a relationship between her and Hawkeye was planned. Whedon fought against it because he wanted to show that men and women can be great friends without having sex.
  • Whedon and the studio had the idea to pair up Banner and the Black Widow after their scene in the hut in "The Avengers". Whedon also had Banner toy with a craddle in thar scene in reference to his inability to have children, which he thought was interesting concept.
  • Whedon decided to kill one of the Twins because he believed killing a young character would be more striking, and he chose Quicksilver because he didn't want to kill the only other female superhero in the movie. He teased several times that Hawkeye would die to make Quicksilver's death more surprising.
  • There's an alternative version of the bedroom scene in which Banner rejects Black Widow, and an alternative version of her bringing out the Hulk that was cut because it was cool, but didn't fit the narrative.
  • There are deleted scenes highligting Quicksilver's womanizing exploits.
  • Originally, Thor would have two visions, with the second one being him conversing with Loki in a burning Asgard. In the original cut, the pool that Thor and Erik Selvig locate is a way to speak with the Norns. Thor goes into the pool and is possessed by them, allowing Selvig to question them about Thor's visions with them responding through Thor, but is was not well-received by test-audiences.
  • There's an alternative ending where Quicksilver survives the barrage of bullets and recovers with Dr. Cho's medical technology, and later joins the New Avengers aloingside Wanda in a new uniform.
  • Marvel Studios executives didn't want to include the team's visions and Hawkeye's farm. The latter was once left in when Whedon agreed to cut the cave subplot to the mininal requirement to move the plot along.
  • Whedon originally planned for Captain Marvel and Spider-Man to be part of the New Avengers scene, but agreements couldn't be made in time, and when both became available, it was too late to reshoot the scene.
  • Marvel and Sony discussing integrating "The Amazing Spider-Man" to the MCU by featuring OsCorp Tower on the New York City skyline in "The Avengers", but agreements couldn't be reached in time.
  • Whedon wanted the Avengers to go to Sokovia still at odds with each other, and only truly come together in the church, and felt that Vision proving himself by lifting Mjolnir was the best way to explain why they'd let him accompany them.
  • The final battle was reworked several times, and entire action sequences and combos were cut and rearranged.
  • Whedon regrets reviving Coulson as it devalues his death in "The Avengers", and wants Quicksilver's death to be permanent.
  • The script called for the Quinjet where Hulk is locked up to reach the stratosphere, where the Hulk could see stars, as Whedon wanted to indicate he's "leaving the world behind". Marvel shot it down because it'd just lead people to think of Planet Hulk, and they're not doing that.
  • Originally Stark was going to use his neural patterns to program Ultron despite Banner's warning against it, which would lead to admitting that Ultron's viewpoints on humanity being a threat to Earth being a extremist version of his own.
  • Scrapped a sequence with Banner and Widow breaking out of Ultron's lair together, with Widow using several weapons from Strucker's cache.
  • Dropped the idea of Hawkeye mentoring Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, including an earlier draft of the fight in which they're alone together facing off drones, with Hawkeye teaching them to better use their powers to disable them.
  • Earlier drafts apparently had an all-out fight between Thor and Vision in which Vision lifts the hammer and hits Thor with it.
  • Stark would have called the Twins "Flowers in the Attic", and they don't understand the reference. Wanda says it sounds lovely, Hawkeye quips "trust me, it isn't". (It strikes me that changing Tony's line in the hammer party scene from the trailer's "I will be fair but firmly cruel" to "I will be reinstituting Prima Nocta" -- ie, forcing brides to sleep with me on their wedding night -- was Whedon's response to being told to drop the incest joke.)
