Joss Whedon Says ‘Age of Ultron’ Villain Is ‘Funny, Strange and Unexpected’

- 04-24-14Comics, Film Posted by Jacob Knight

Ultron

“…last time I had all of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes versus one British character actor, and I needed more conflict.”

Joss Whedon is admittedly “having a blast” playing around with the new villain for the Avengers sequel Age of Ultron. While recently speaking with Empire magazine, he discussed not only the latest villain whom everybody’s favorite band of Marvel superheroes are facing off against, but also the overseas release dates (Marvel recently announced Avengers: Age of Ultron will get an earlier release of April 24, 2015, keeping with the recent trend of placing it ahead of the U.S. date) and also how the textures of the architecture in the United Kingdom are being emphasized during the filming of the biggest MCU sequel to date.

‘The Avengers: Age of Ultron’ to Bring Back Lou Ferrigno to Voice Hulk

- 04-23-14Comics, Film Posted by Jacob Knight

The beauty of being the first guy cast as an iconic comic book character is that you’re always going to be associated with said creature and, thus, probably work for the rest of your life. Such is existence for Lou Ferrigno, the bodybuilder whose work on 82 episodes of the Incredible Hulk television series that aired in the late 70s and early 80s still earns him a booth at numerous fan conventions and cameo appearances in Marvel movies (remember him as the security guard at Banner’s lab in Hulk? You should because it’s great!). The bit parts continues to roll in for Ferrigno, as he’s been cast to reprise his role as the Big Green Meanie’s voice in Joss Whedon’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Hopefully this time he gets to say a little more than “puny god”.

See The Opening to New Whedon-Penned Supernatural Romance: ‘In Your Eyes’

- 04-18-14Film Posted by James Daniels

When Joss Whedon isn’t finding new and even more horrific ways to kill off his most likeable characters, he’s finding ways to entangle them romantically: Buffy and Angel, Buffy and Spike, Wesley and Fred, Zoe and Wash (R.I.P.), Mal and Inara, Simon and Kaylee, Jayne and Vera….you get the picture.

Ergo, it’s not surprising that one day he might write a straight-up romance–with a preternatural twist, naturally, this IS Whedon we’re talking about: Thus, we have In Your Eyes. And Nerd Bastards has the first 3 minutes of the Brin Hill-directed film–you guessed it–after the jump:  (more…)

“Not agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., just agents of… nothing”

With last week’s episode showing that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. can hold the weight of being the MCU tie-in that we all wanted it to be, this episode asked the question of “Can they keep it up?”  While the answer to that may have been obvious to most viewers, we’ve definitely got an idea of what we can expect from here on out.
