Now you can watch the Hulk get up close and personal with his director.

If you recall, a few days ago some comments surfaced from an interview Joss Whedon did at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York, in which he discussed his thoughts on Avengers: Age of Ultron and his perspective on it a year after its release. 

It turns out that those remarks were taken from an hour-long live interview that Whedon did at the festival with his Avengers cast member Mark Ruffalo -- and now the entire 60-minute talk is available online.

There's much more in their discussion beyond Whedon's Ultron comments, as he delves into his childhood, what drove him to be a writer, his very personal approach to his craft and more. He and Ruffalo also discuss things like their first meeting about the Hulk and whether Whedon would ever return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (it doesn't sound like the door is completely closed).

Two things become apparent throughout the hour: Whedon and Ruffalo are clearly fond of each other (maybe Joss will come back to direct World War Hulk if Marvel ever makes that?), and Whedon is extraordinarily humble and self-deprecating -- almost to an uncomfortable degree -- while also quite candid about what he perceives as his shortcomings.

It's a fascinating look inside the mind of one of geekdom's great talents, so set aside some time and check it out. As for what he's working on next, Whedon only says it's "super good."
