Review: 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' Rides Familiar Wave to Entertainment

The Avengers: Age of Ultron

Meanwhile, back in the Marvel cinematic universe, it's business as usual. Iron Man soars through the air blasting tanks and terrorists with his repulser beams. Thor, immaculate hair flowing, tosses his hammer around controlling the lightning. Hulk, you know, smashes. Even Hawkeye, with his bow and arrows, flings his…arrows with his…bow. Yes, it's everything you've come to expect and anticipate when the Avengers get back together, and Avengers: Age of Ultron has familiarity in abundance. That's good and bad when you get down to it, and even with the bloom off the rose, Marvel sure knows how to entertain with the best.

Watch: Marvel Cinematic Universe Tribute Before 'Avengers' Tonight

Marvel Cinematic Universe

Just after the emotions of Pixar Animation's Inside Out reacted to a trailer for The Avengers: Age of Ultron, audiences will be reacting to the entire film once it starts screening around the United States this evening. And for one last piece of hype before the Marvel Studios sequel arrives, why not take a look back at the entire Marvel cinematic universe up until this point? This is bound to happen before each installment of The Avengers every few years, and it's a cool montage of the great stuff we've seen from Marvel so far on the big screen, from the first Iron Man back in 2008 up through The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Let's do this!

Bryan Singer Reveals Jubilee & Jean Grey on 'X-Men: Apocalypse' Set

X-Men: Apocalypse

There's been a lot of talk about X-Men this week, from our first look at Kodi Smit-McPhee as Nightcrawler in X-Men: Apocalypse to rumblings of the sequel, along with Wolverine 3, bringing the Bryan Singer X-Men universe to a close in favor of letting the X-Men: First Class timeline continue. We'll see what happens next year, but in the meantime, production is underway on Apocalypse, and Singer is certainly being open about teasing the film. Today he revealed a photo from the set of the sequel showing us Lana Condor and Sophie Turner as Jubilee and Jean Grey, all dressed up in 80s wardrobe and hair. Look!

Watch: Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye Sings About His Superpowers

Jeremy Renner

There's no doubt that Hawkeye has been the butt of many jokes regarding his position on The Avengers, mostly because he seems to just be a skilled agent with a bow and arrow standing beside Earth's mightiest heroes with super strength, magical weapons, near-invincibility and more. As I understand it, Hawkeye has a great line addressing this in The Avengers: Age of Ultron, but you'll have to see for yourself later this week. In the meantime, Jeremy Renner appeared on "The Tonight Show" last night as Clint Barton to sing about the superpowers people may not know he has, all to the tune of an Ed Sheeran song. Watch below!

The Emotions of 'Inside Out' React to 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' Trailer

Inside Out / The Avengers: Age of Ultron

In a cute bit of cross promotion from New Zealand, the folks at Walt Disney in the southern hemisphere have used the emotions from this summer's Pixar Animation film Inside Out as a way to help one of Disney's other big summer blockbusters, The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Footage from the promising Pixar flick has been edited around one of the trailers for the Marvel Studios sequel to make it seem as if Joy (Amy Poehler), Sadness (Phyllis Smith)Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black) and Disgust (Mindy Kaling) are watching and reacting to the trailer. It's a clever way to promote both the Disney flicks. Watch!

'Apocalypse' & 'Wolverine 3' to End Bryan Singer's X-Men Universe

X-Men

Last year's X-Men: Days of Future Past did a spectacular job of essentially rebooting the X-Men franchise, while still meshing the casts of the original trilogy from director Bryan Singer, and the new cast from X-Men: First Class. However, now that there's a new past timeline intact, it sounds like the old one might be coming to an end for good this time. El Mayimbe, the scoopmaster formerly of Latino Review, posted a juicy rumor to Instagram saying that X-Men: Apocalypse and Wolverine 3 will be the final films to have ties to Bryan Singer's X-Men universe, and everything from now on will concern the X-Men: First Class team.

Watch: 'Sesame Street' Adds Veggies to 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron'

Sesame Street's The Avengers: Age of Ultron

Earlier this year, during the heart of awards season, "Sesame Street" had some fun by parodying Birdman with the help of Big Bird. Now that it's blockbuster season, the children's television workshop is back with another Crumby Pictures production that has a new spin on The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Instead of an assembly of Captain America, Iron Man, Thor and the usual heroes, this team is powered by vegetables to make The Aveggies: Age of Bon Bon. The citizens of the city are having their vegetables ruined by sweets, and only The Aveggies, composed of Onion Man and Captain Americauliflower can stop the chaos.

Elizabeth Olsen

In just one week, The Avengers: Age of Ultron will be hitting theaters here in the United States, even though it's already started playing overseas. We're eagerly awaiting to see how it progresses the Marvel cinematic universe and potentially sets up what will be a major conflict for our heroes in Captain America: Civil War. The sequel already has Robert Downey Jr. on board as Iron Man, and it will also see Scarlett Johansson, Anthony Mackie and Jeremy Renner will also pop up as Black Widow, Falcon and Hawkeye, and Chadwick Boseman will debut as Black Panther.

Nat Wolff, Asa Butterfield & Three More Shortlisted for 'Spider-Man'

Asa Butterfield / Spider-Man / Nat Wolff

It's been a couple months since Sony Pictures struck a deal with Marvel Studios to share the iconic superhero Spider-Man, allowing him to enter the Marvel cinematic universe while Sony creates yet another franchise featuring a new version of Peter Parker. The last substantial update on the Spider-Man front pegged Drew Goddard to write and direct what will be the first film in a new franchise, beginning on the big screen July 28th, 2017. Since then, we've learned that Spider-Man will definitely be Peter Parker (not Miles Morales), but we've had no indication as to who may play the webcrawler. That changed today.

The 'Star Wars' Easter Egg in Marvel's Phase Two Films You Can't Miss

Star Wars

There's always tons of easter eggs for comic book fans in each and every Marvel Studios film. However, now that Disney owns both Marvel and Lucasfilm, can we anticipate any easter eggs for Star Wars in the Marvel cinematic universe? Well, yes and no. While there's likely not any easter eggs referencing characters or mythology in Star Wars within the world of The Avengers, the comic book film studio's head honcho Kevin Feige revealed that there's actually a major easter egg that is detailed in every single Phase Two film thus far, and the trend has been confirmed to continue in The Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man.

Look: Hero Complex's 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron' Art Show Pieces

The Avengers: Age of Ultron

For those who don't like their movie posters overly Photoshopped, the print marketing for The Avengers: Age of Ultron has been pretty lackluster (though not as bad as that Entertainment Weekly banner). The only saving grace has been the posters that fans can vote to receive when the film debuts on IMAX screens next week. But thankfully, some much more impressive and fun artwork has surfaced thanks to Marvel's partnering with Hero Complex for a new gallery show that will have over 100 pieces of original work inspired by the comic book sequel. They range from being awesome to just being downright adorable. Look!

Check Out Marvel's Brilliant, Tiny Billboards Promoting 'Ant-Man'

Ant-Man

The first official teaser poster for Ant-Man certainly had us grinning since it took advantage of the size of Marvel Studios' newest big screen superhero for an amusing piece of marketing. And now they're at it again with a cute little viral campaign popping up in Australia. Reddit users (via ScreenCrush) have noticed some tiny billboards popping up next to bus stops down under promoting Ant-Man. They look just like normal sized billboards, complete with lights that turn on at night, and it's just an adorable and clever little stunt. We haven't heard about any of these popping up in the United States yet, but keep your eyes peeled. Look!
