ENJOY THE SHOW
You may remember that shortly after the Super Bowl last month, Chris Pratt made good on a bet he made with Chris Evans to stop at the Captain America star's charity of choice dressed as Star-Lord from Guardians of the Galaxy after the New England Patriots won the Super Bowl. But Evans also agreed to follow through on his side of the bet by stopping at the Seattle Children's Hospital suited up as the patriotic superhero as well. He posed with kids, letting them hold Cap's shield, and Pratt was there as well, handing out Captain America and Guardians of the Galaxy toys. Seriously, these two are the best. Look!
Even though we're still a little under a couple months until The Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters, it's probably safe to say our heroes will defeat the title villain before the end of the film (though we wonder if we'll lose some team members in the process). However, the folks at "Saturday Night Live" are ahead of the curve by predicting flawless victory for our heroes in a new sketch from this past weekend's new episode with Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth, as the host. And with the battle over, the God of Thunder is ready to party like a frat boy as he's interviewed live on the news, and he even seems a bit drunk already. Watch!
The cast of Captain America: Civil War is going to be so packed, it might as well just be another chapter for all of The Avengers. We already know that Robert Downey Jr. will be facing off with Chris Evans as Iron Man and Captain America butt heads in the most confrontational way yet, and Scarlett Johansson has also been confirmed to return as Black Widow along with Captain America: The Winter Soldier addition Anthony Mackie as Falcon. Plus, Chadwick Boseman will make his first appearance as Black Panther in the film, and Spider-Man is also supposed to show up too. Now we can add yet another Marvel hero as well.
In case you haven't checked out the latest trailer for The Avengers: Age of Ultron, you're missing out of an awesome shot with the entire team leaping across the screen into action. However, some fans can't wait until the team has a new member when Spider-Man enters the Marvel cinematic universe in Captain America: Civil War, and the folks at IGN decided to give them something to keep them at bay. They've taken parts of the new trailer for the Marvel sequel and added in footage from various Spider-Man movies to make him integral to the action. It's a solid edit, and it gets us excited for when he's really part of the team.
Yesterday's new trailer for The Avengers: Age of Ultron should have been enough to tickle your fancy for the next couple months as we await the film's arrival in theaters in May (not to mention the return of The Ultimate Marvel Marathon leading up to it). But if you're looking for a little more insight into the Marvel sequel, some behind the scenes featurettes have surfaced online from a couple outlets who were allowed on set to interview director Joss Whedon and stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner and more while production happened last year. Watch!
With the Marvel cinematic universe again reaching a milestone adventure with The Avengers assembling for the sequel The Avengers: Age of Ultron, it's time to revisit all of Marvel Studios' films leading up to this point again. Back in 2012 when The Avengers hit theaters, all of Phase One was given a marathon leading up to the release of the first big screen superhero assembly. And now, with even more movies on the roster, The Ultimate Marvel Marathon is happening again at AMC Theatres and Regal Entertainment Group theaters beginning on April 29th and leading into the April 30th debut of The Avengers sequel.
"Here we all are, with nothing but our wit and our will to save the world. So stand and fight." Even though the trailer wasn't supposed to premiere until tomorrow, Marvel fans were given the chance to unlock the latest look at The Avengers: Age of Ultron early by way of Twitter. After thousands of tweets using the hashtag #AvengersAssemble were tossed around, the new trailer has arrived, and it's a big one. There's tons more action on display and some incredible shots, especially that one of the entire team jumping through the woods. And yes, there's finally a shot of Paul Bettany as Vision in there too. Watch below!
Just yesterday we reported the rumor that Cabin in the Woods writer and director Drew Goddard was being lined up to write and direct the first film in Sony Pictures' new Spider-Man franchise. As of now it's just a rumor, so perhaps there's a chance that someone else could take the gig. The Wrap reports that Anthony & Joe Russo, the directing duo behind Captain America: The Winter Soldier and the forthcoming sequel Captain America: Civil War, have just struck a new first-look deal at Sony Pictures that will begin in April and last for three years. Sounds like it could be the perfect gateway for them to direct the new Spider-Man.
After finding out this morning that the next trailer for The Avengers: Age of Ultron will be arriving on Thursday, March 5th (that's the big announcement that Robert Downey Jr. teased last week), the posters for the Marvel sequel are still being churned out. Yesterday, Jeremy Renner got his own poster as Hawkeye and today it's Chris Evans as Captain America standing heroically. We're betting Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson will get their own posters (or maybe they'll both be on one) before the new trailer arrives, and then that'll be the whole team (Vision probably won't get his own poster yet). Stay tuned for more.
Following a tease last week from Robert Downey Jr. about a big announcement coming eight days from last Wednesday, it sounds like we finally know what Marvel Studios has in store. A tease on television has revealed that a new trailer for The Avengers: Age of Ultron will arrive on Thursday, March 5th during the series premiere of ABC's new drama series "American Crime." Since ABC is owned by Disney, it's not surprising to see synergy at work here to get as many eyes as possible on one of their promising new midseason series. The question is just what kind of new footage we'll see in this new trailer. Maybe Vision?
This is moving fast. Our friends at Latino Review are reporting a big scoop that apparently Disney/Marvel are keen on hiring Drew Goddard for the new set of Spider-Man movies. If you recall, a few weeks ago it was confirmed officially by Marvel that Sony & Disney have partnered up and agreed to share rights to the Spider-Man character. This means that Spidey can appear in the current Marvel Cinematic Universe (and rumors are he'll appear in Captain America 3: Civil War, if not sooner) and that Spidey will also get a new series of movies (throwing out everything established by Marc Webb with Andrew Garfield) following his re-introduction. They don't have a scoop on any casting just yet, but it sounds like Goddard will be taking over the new Spider-Man movie since the Sinister Six project (that he was also attached to) has fallen apart.
Up next in the series of character posters for Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron is Hawkeye, played by Jeremy Renner. The actor revealed his new poster via his on Twitter account, @Renner4Real, and only added "the official #Hawkeye character poster." We're now only two months away to the release of Age of Ultron, which means the clock is ticking down and we're getting closer and closer by the day. I dig the new spray paint red logo, which seems to be a US-only thing. Other character posters for Thor, Black Widow, Nick Fury and Hulk have appeared already. Stay tuned for the rest+more updates on Ultron as we get closer.
Perhaps in preparation for the weekend, when people take a bit of a break from the internet to get some fresh air, Marvel has just unveiled three characters poster for The Avengers: Age of Ultron to follow Iron Man and Hulk earlier this week. We're still waiting to hear what this big announcement may be that Robert Downey Jr. teased on Wednesday, but maybe it'll coincide with the return of "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D" next week. In the meantime, you can check out the posters featuring Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), and stay tuned for more. Look now!
Following yesterday's character poster featuring Iron Man ready for battle in The Avengers: Age of Ultron, it looks like we're gong to get a new character poster everyday leading up to whatever big announcement Robert Downey Jr. teased yesterday. This time it's Mark Ruffalo revealing a poster for The Hulk, who is pretty angry as usual, fighting at the same castle location from yesterday's poster. If you haven't yet, make sure you check out what both Ruffalo and Downey had to say about the future of Bruce Banner and Tony Stark, especially since the science bros are going to duke it out on the big screen. Look!
