Personally I admire Channel 4 News presenter Krishnan Guru-Murthy but I really don’t think he’s suited to interviewing celebrities.
In the video above Guru-Murphy poses a couple of really uncomfortable questions to the movie star Robert Downey Jnr about the star’s past with drugs and his relationship with his father when the sole reason the actor was present for the chat was to promote his latest film Avengers 2: Age Of Ultron.
I have no idea why a man’s long forgotten days with narcotics or much publicised relationship with his dad should be of any relevance now, when he has spoken at length about his struggles years before. Downey Jnr rightly left the interview early stating:
“It’s just getting a little Diane Sawyer in here”
Here it is. After months of waiting we finally get our first glimpse of what the Avengers sequel will look like and judging by what’s on display in the trailer you may just soil yourself with unbridled joy.
There’s Quicksilver, ( a different one from X-Men: Days Of Future Past), the Scarlet Witch, a Hulkbuster and just listen to Ultron’s dulcet tones courtesy of James Spader, (The Blacklist). The main plot of Avengers: Age Of Ultron rattles along like so:
With S.H.I.E.L.D. destroyed and the Avengers needing a hiatus from stopping threats, Tony Stark attempts to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program with Ultron, a self-aware, self-teaching, artificial intelligence. However, his plan backfires when Ultron decides that humans are the main enemy and sets out to eradicate them from Earth, and it is up to Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, the Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, along with support from Nick Fury and Maria Hill, to stop him from enacting his plans. Along the way, the Avengers encounter the powerful twins, Pietro and Wanda Maximoff, as well as the familiar Vision.
Avengers: Age Of Ultron is scheduled for releason on May1st, 2015.
