Rumor hit the Internet  yesterday that the first five seconds of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer will be leaked by the film’s director Zack Snyder tomorrow at 9am. Just an hour before the Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim kicks off. Read on to find out why I’m personally excited about this as well as get more details on the trailer. Feel free to yell at me in the comments about how Batman isn’t that great. Fight me IRL, I don’t care. With any luck, this is going to be a bloodbath. (more…)

Avengers: Age of Ultron launches into theaters in less than a month. While it will surely be the mega hit of the summer, there is a sense of nervousness that it won’t live up to its predecessor.

The general public will be able to decide its merits on May 1st. Last night, however, AOU went live in the form of a critics screening. While everyone’s full takes are embargoed until the premier, Twitter however, remains grounds for some early commentary. Fans will be delighted to know that the movie is apparently as awesome as everyone hoped. However, there are a few negative nellys that have called out some early suspected flaws.

Our friends and Cinemablend rounded up some early reactions from a handful of critics. Click on thru if you wanna see what all the early buzz is about.  (more…)

Whether it was RDJs cameo at the end of The Hulk,  Thor’s hammer at the end of Iron Man 2, Howard the Duck in Guardians of the Galaxy, or the genius “shawarma scene” from the first Avengers, Marvel Studios has made sitting through those long credits bearable with their “post credit” scenes.

The Marvel movies have turned the post-credits scene into an art. The scenes are so well established that they’ve expanded them into mid-credits scenes, often offering two bonuses on every movie. It’s something extra fans can look forward to, and count on.

Avengers: Age of Ultron is the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time. Sadly, it will not have a post-credits scene. (more…)

It’s often said that Hollywood is Highschool with money. While that is mostly true, in the case of the cast and crew of Joss Whedon’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, it’s summer camp without the counselors (except not really). What is certain, is this rag tag crew of actors dressed as superheroes like each other a heck of a lot, and sure know how to have fun on set.

A new Avengers: Age of Ultron behind-the-scenes featurette shows what goofs and good times the likes of RDJ, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Evans and the rest of the AOU cast were having on set. (more…)

Marvel and Disney slipped a couple of surprises into their Avengers: Age of Ultron premiere tip sheet for the press. That’s basically the announcement to the press about which celebrities will be available at the movie’s premiere, walking the red carpet and talking with press. Down the list of attending celebrities were two names included in the section that deals with those actually in the film that included two new names: Linda Cardellini (Freaks and Geeks), and Julie Delpy (Before Midnight). That means they are IN the movie, what roles might they be playing?

There is so much love for Joss Whedon’s  Firefly. Fandom for the series has carried on well past the shows cancellation in 2003 and continues to gain new fans. It’s no surprise to find Browncoats from current hit programming showing their love and giving respect to Joss Whedon‘s space-western.

Jesse L. Martin, Carlos Valdes, and Rick Cosnett from CW’s The Flash sing an a capella version of “The Ballad of Serenity,” the theme song from Joss Whedon’s beloved TV series. (more…)

As we countdown to the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron, which, in North America, is now barely 40 days away, every new look we get at the film is a banquet for the eyes, and a fest for the senses. We can’t wait! A new mini trailer came out today via the film’s Twitter account, and it offered us several never before seen glimpses at the movie, but something stood out. You may have noted before that while we’ve seen a lot of Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen as Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch respectively, we haven’t, as of yet, heard them talk. Well, that’s all about to change once you see this new trailer, and we’ll tell you right now, if you like silly Eastern European accents, you’re about be over the moon. (more…)
