Marvel Studios’ The Avengers: Age of Ultron won’t even hit theaters until next May and already rumors and speculation have begun to swirl around the third installment in the Avengers series of films. While  everyone seems excited to see Earth’s Mightiest Heroes take on James Spader’s Ultron, the teases of Thanos and the Infinity Gauntlet that have been sprinkled throughout Marvel’s films since the first Avengers movie have had fans wondering when we’ll see the Mad Titan wreak his own unique brand of havoc across the galaxy.

According to The Daily Marvelite, when we do finally see Thanos, his presence might be enough to split the third Avengers in two. (more…)

James Spader Told Jimmy Fallon That Ultron Could Dunk A Basketball Without Jumping.

If you’d told me back in 1986 that James Spader and Robert Downey Jr. would be boss characters in a SECOND ‘Avengers’ movie, I’d have had to toss cherry Slurpees on your head from the mall balcony. There’s just no way you can predict things things. As perfect as Spader is for the role of Ultron in the new ‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron’ blockbuster extravaganza (calling it already), I still see him as that douchebag Steff from ‘Pretty In Pink.’ Screw Robert California, Alan Shore and ‘The Blacklist.’ That dude is Steff! And Steff was on ‘The Tonight Show’ the other night talking to Fallon about Comic Con. And according to him, director Joss Whedon’s version of Ultron is like one of those giants from ‘Clash Of Clans.’

Marvel released the first official plot synopsis for Joss Whedon‘s Avengers: Age of Ultron earlier today. Don’t worry though, there’s not any smoking gun here. Nothing that spoils everything unless you’ve been on an Amish retreat in a remote ice cave in Antartica. It does set up the frame-work in which we can begin to speculate like demons though. Take a look after the jump. (more…)

Along with the rise of this Golden Age of TV, is the arrival of the celebrity showrunner. The job of a showrunner is to, as it says, run the show, and it’s been part of TV since TV began, but quick, name the person that ran Gilligan’s Island or Magnum P.I. And now try to name the showrunner for Orange is the New Black or Breaking Bad. Exactly. Well, a new book is attempting to put the rise of the celebrity showrunner cast into context, and break down what it takes to be successful in the business, and as a taste of the new book has been posted on the web in the form of an except that asks a couple of key nerd icons: What does it take to be a good showrunner?

Marvel is just winning all over the place this week. Fans (and likely the studio heads) of the comic book publisher/movie studio cheered when the ridiculous box office numbers for Guardians of the Galaxy were reported on Monday; they cheered even more uproariously when Warner Bros. flinched with respect to the release date of Batman v. Superman, which was also held by Marvel’s Captain America 3 until yesterday when WB decided to change dates. Still, with all of this excitement, Joss Whedon managed to up the still take it to the next level with this simple tweet: (more…)

The Planet Hulk movie rumor has taken on a life of its own on the Internet. Whedon, Feige, and Ruffalo can’t do an interview without someone asking about the possibilities.
