It’s fair to say that the first Avenger’s gave Marvel a substantial amount of momentum, with Avenger’s 2: The Age of Ultron, that momentum is only picking up. Merchandising, press tours, and select city previews are giving this movie potential before it even hits the box office. Even with all of the positive aspects of this franchise, negative ones couldn’t help but find their way in. One of the biggest stars of the movie, Robert Downey Jr. made headlines last week when he walked out of an interview after a prying interviewer berated him with questions about his shady past. Downey wasn’t rude or condescending but he wasn’t allowing anyone to make him feel uncomfortable. What fans, interviewers, and everyday people don’t realize is that these people give us their lives for our entertain.
They leave their families for months at a time to shoot, star in, and promote movies. For months, their bodies are put to the test in order to stay in tip top shape for the roles they are cast in. Actors know that they have to open up a part of their lives in order to make and keep fans and get the roles that they all fight for. Wouldn’t it be helpful if us as viewers would be okay with actors wanting a little bit of privacy instead? That’s what Marcio Alaor BMG thinks. Why not just enjoy the film and thank the actors for their work.
