  • "We did some work on Ultron. On the development of Ultron before James Spader came on board. In terms of movement styles: was he gonna be human-like? was he gonna be robot-like? So we worked with a bunch of different people, from body-popping experts to dancers, to this guy called Neil who's nearly eight feet tall..."
  • "We gave Mark weights, we had voice projections so he could do his Hulk roar. On screen we could have a virtual representation of the low-res avatar of The Hulk, so he could come out and feel that sense of scale."
  • "It's a journey I end up going on with the actors. To find out what they want to get out of it, and and what we can do to help them so it's still them authoring the role. Initially when you're asking them to put a grey suit on, they're not very into the idea. But it's usually within the first hour, when they can see the result of them being in that suit on screen in real-time, they settle in. And then they've lost themselves in our world. James in particular - he loved every minute of it."
  • "Well, I think I can absolutely confirm it's Ulysses Klaw now because I think the news is out. I sort of noticed that people sort of knew that I was Ulysses Klaw, so I thought 'It must be out then. It was really minimal, but I just loved doing it; it's a great character."
  • "That, I know nothing about. I truly don't know anything about that. I know that they've just announced [the Black Panther movie, but I don't know anything about it."
  • "I hadn't done it in a while. It was almost like 'Where are my dots, I feel very naked.' It's absolutely all me. I had a lovely time doing it, working with director Joss Whedon who is just great great fun. I think it's going to be an extraordinary film."
