Marvel.com has just announced the casting of Martin Freeman (The Hobbit, Sherlock, The Office, Oh hell this could take forever if I named all the stuff of his we all love…) for Captain America: Civil War. That’s right, Bilbo is going on an adventure with the likes of Captain America (Chris Evans), Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), and all the other Marvel superheros involved in Civil War. There’s no word on what role Freeman might play and you know what that means… You got it, what time is it? Speculation time!!! (more…)

There was a big Avengers: Age of Ultron Press conference in London earlier today with a big chunk of the cast including director Joss Whedon, and thanks to HeyUGuys, we’ve got the full conference on video. For those of you that have never attended a press conference or roundtable, they are a collection of fantastic, boring, nutty, and confusing questions that tend to spark some pretty silly answers from the actors involved. Hidden amongst all those examples are a few questions and answers that offer some great insights into the characters and possible future projects.

But perhaps your desire for superhero fun and excitement can be fed with the following clips. The stars of Avengers were very busy yesterday with red carpets and talk show appearances, while the studio is busy releasing new scenes, and new advertisements to convince fans who were already excited about this project mere minutes after 2012’s The Avengers ended, why they should be even more excited.

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…)
