Avengers: Age of Ultron director Joss Whedon recently shared some new details about his upcoming Marvel sequel which looks like it will live up to fans' expectations.

Whedon spoke to Empire about the main villain in the new film – Ultron: "I'm having a blast with Ultron. He's not a creature of logic - he's a robot who's genuinely disturbed. We're finding out what makes him menacing and at the same time endearing and funny and strange and unexpected, and everything a robot never is."

He also went on to address concerns that the multiple number of villains set to face the Avengers in the upcoming sequel are just there as fan bait.

"I fiercely dislike the idea of just throwing in more people for the sake of doing that..." he stressed.

The reason behind adding so many antagonists is indirectly because of Tom Hiddleston as per Moviepilot, he said.

"But Last time I had all of Earth's Mightiest Heroes versus one British character actor, and I needed more conflict."

In addition to Ultron, Baron Wolfgang von Strucker (Thomas Kretschmann), Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and the Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) are all on hand to ramp up the menace levels.

As for the movie's UK locations, Whedon explained how he plans to use them to give his sequel a fresh look.

"The number of different looks and textures and moods we're getting from the British locations is stupid awesome...because this, palette-wise, is very different. I'm trying to make a different film. Because why would you make one movie twice? That seems weird."

Avengers: Age Of Ultron will release on April 24, 2015.
