The first all-character poster for Avengers: Age of Ultron featured so many characters that it might has well have been a layout for “Where’s Waldo?”. In the time since, the Marvel marketing machine has been releasing individual posters for each of the characters in the star studded super sequel. Last leaving off with Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch and Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s Quicksilver, there’s really no human left to put their mug on a poster. Keyword there being “human”.

Marvel Studios has released a new character poster for Avengers: Age of Ultron featuring the villain from the film, in all his robot glory. (more…)

Joss Whedon was recently interviewed by SFX magazine about his forthcoming release, Avengers: Age of Ultron and it’s near-final cut. In true Whedon fashion, he offered a bunch of thoughts on where the characters are at when this film takes place and the kinds of struggles they’re dealing with – the kind of depth we’ve come to love from this auteur. The context is great, especially in light of the third movie trailer released this past Tuesday (which already has almost 11 million hits on YouTube). What does he think about the film, the performances, the editing thus far? Let’s find out! (more…)

Oh my! What the…?! Oh boy. That in a nutshell is the new trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron. One of the most anticipated movies of the year gets even more anticipated with each passing trailer, this latest one being the third we’ve seen so far. If memory serves, this was supposed to premiere sometime during Thursday’s airing of the new ABC series American Crime (Yay, corporate synergy!), but like all things concerning The Avengers, the awesomeness of the new footage was too tremendous to contained by a silly thing like “official release dates.” So what can be expected as soon as you press play on the below video? Why ruin the surprise? (more…)

The hype leading up to the May 1st release of Avengers: Age of Ultron has been building steadily since the first footage of pitch-perfect James Spader‘s Ultron was shown last year. It’s no surprise really, considering the phenomenal, well-deserved success of Joss Whedon‘s first crack at Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. Still, with the exhilarating footage they’ve already shown us, it’s great to see that Marvel wasn’t content to just sit on their cash-stained hands and phone it in for the inevitably colossal sequel. To further pump us up for the new trailer’s release on Thursday during the premier of ABC‘s American Crime, those sly costumed bastards over at camp Marvel snuck a few exciting pieces of new footage into a brief teaser for us.

Robert Downey Jr. started off the week with a look at the new Iron Man character poster from Joss Whedon‘s Avengers: Age of Ultron, then Mark Ruffalo tweeted out the Hulk’s. Samuel L. Jackson picked up the ball today and tweeted out three new Character posters, Nick Fury, Thor, and the Black Widow. All this is leading to something in a few days, what could it be? (more…)

Joss Whedon. Now that I have your attention, let’s talk about Avengers: Age of Ultron, which, as I’m sure you already know, comes out in a theater near you in just over two months time. Apparently, some of you are a little miffed that Whedon in his infinite wisdom decided to tweak the titular villain’s origin for the film by making him a creation of Iron Man Tony Stark as opposed to using his comic book creator Dr. Henry Pym. Well, it turns out that Whedon feels your pain. Ultron’s origins was one of many questions addressed by Whedon in an interview done during the production of the Avengers sequel. (more…)

Marvel recently released a new digital comic, Avengers: Age of Ultron Prelude – This Scepter’d Isle (Say that five times fast), that lays it all out for anyone speculating about how Marvel will handle Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Scarlet Witch’s (Elizabeth Olsen) origins when translating them from the comics to the big screen in Joss Whedon‘s Avengers: Age of Ultron. Gotta warn you, there be spoilers ahead and if you want to stay blissfully unaware… don’t click-through. If you do, it’s all on you. (more…)
