albertaroca asked: how it feels like having a story (age of ultron) written by you brought to the big screen? do they consult you lot of stuff or something? :)
The titles are the same but the stories are very different. obviously my Ultron story had to do with the grand history of Ultron and the Marvel universe. I don’t think it would be a surprise to find out that the story you’re going to see in the movies is about the cinematic birth of that character. just based on that you can see that they are going to be very different stories.
it’s just one hell of a name… which I believe was tom brevoort’s idea. and I also believe it was a place holder name until we came up with a better one which we never did :-)
but, as always, I consult on every Marvel movie as part of the creative committee.
tyramir asked: Xavier did WHAT?! Bahahaha. Well played, sir. I cannot WAIT for the explanation, but seriously, never before have I seen a writer so willing to play suicidal chicken with his readership.
Every writer does that with every readership every issue. I just tend to do it with a little more flair :-)
But for the many many people asking me many many questions… the story is far from over so don’t flip out on my face about continuity miniature just yet
and, I promise you, there’s nothing about X-Men continuity that you know that I and my editors do not.
