Paul Bettany is no stranger to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, having provided the voice for J.A.R.V.I.S in Iron Man, Iron Man 2, The Avengers/Avengers Assemble and Iron Man 3, but he’s set to make his first on-screen appearance as The Vision in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Speaking with an Australian news outlet, Bettany has spoken about the role and announced he has the standard multi-picture deal post Avengers: Age of Ultron.
“That’s the really great thing about the Marvel gig for me,” Bettany told the news outlet “I have never known if I have had a job six months out ever in my life. And now I know that they have plans and I can be even more judicious about the stuff that I do outside of that work. I can wait for the right thing and feel really attached to it. »

When Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters this May, fans will get to hear a very familiar voice in a new way when Paul Bettany's J.A.R.V.I.S. becomes Vision, the first time the actor will actually be seen on screen in a Marvel movie. While promoting his new comedy Mortdecai, the actor hinted in an interview with News.com.au that Marvel has a plan for his character, without specifying what they may be. Here's what he had to say about his multi-picture contract with Marvel.
"That's the really great thing about the Marvel gig for me. I have never known if I have had a job six months out ever in my life. And now I know that they have plans and I can be even more judicious about the stuff that I do outside of that work. I can wait for the right »
As one of the first films to arrive post Age of Ultron, Captain America: Civil War was always going to garner a lot of excitement from Marvel fans, though this early buzz was compounded when the studio confirmed that Robert Downey Jr. would play an integral role in the upcoming threequel, teeing up a decisive war of ethics that would have serious ramifications for the Marvel Cinematic Universe as a whole.
Coming on board proved to be huge news in the studio’s ever-evolving cinematic blueprint, but for Downey Jr., it proved to be a no-brainer. Speaking to Empire, the actor touched upon how Marvel approached him for the part.
They said to me, ‘If we have you, we can do this, or Cap 3 has to be something else. It’s nice to feel needed. And at this point it’s about helping each other, too. I look at it »

Captain America: Civil War was one of the bigger news items to come out of Marvel.s massive announcement of the Phase Three slate. Not only will it introduce Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther to the cinematic universe, it will also pit Chris Evans. Captain America against Robert Downey Jr..s Iron Man. But, as one of Marvel.s screenwriters reminded us recently, we.ll see the first seeds of discord planted in The Avengers: Age of Ultron in May. Collider recently spoke with Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, the writing duo who.ve been working on a number of Marvel projects. In addition to writing the first two Captain America movies and the Agent Carter series, they have returned to pen Civil War. However, as McFeely revealed, they did not have any involvement in that scene we saw from Age of Ultron that sets up tension between the star-spangled »

Don’t mess with Agent Carter — she's tough, she's determined, and she'll look positively flawless while kicking any man's butt.
After only three episodes, fans everywhere have already fallen head over heels for Marvel's Agent Carter. Not only are we obsessed with the adrenaline-pumping plot and action-packed twists, the ABC drama's leading lady Hayley Atwell is finally giving us the kickass Marvel heroine we've been impatiently waiting for.
Luckily when ETonline sat down with stars Atwell and James D'Arcy, they confirmed that the series is only going to get better and better from here on out. Plus, they revealed that it only takes three things — the perfect shade of red lipstick, killer high-heels, and a good hat — for any gal to become a badass secret agent like Peggy.
We’ve known about the Fantastic Four reboot for quite some time, but that hasn’t stopped it being a mysterious project which, until this week, we knew next to nothing about.
We knew that the cast, director and groundwork of the original 2005 film, and its 2007 sequel Rise Of The Silver Surfer, had been firmly thrown out in favour of a new visual look, some reimagining of the source material and an altogether more modern take on the Marvel comics property. Beyond that, many facets of the film remained a mystery.
Yet the reveal of the new trailer finally gave us a few more specifics. And here's what we know so far...

Even these basic facts are a little complicated. While the question »
Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters have two of the most challenging (yet enviable) jobs in Hollywood, serving as showrunners on ABC’s “Agent Carter” and “Resurrection,” two high-concept dramas with vocal fanbases and — following the breakout success of “Resurrection” and the blockbuster track record of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe — plenty of scrutiny.
If they’re feeling the pressure, you wouldn’t know it to talk with the accomplished pair, who sat down with Variety for a gregarious discussion about their professional partnership of 16 years, the experience of playing in the Marvel sandbox, and what’s ahead for “Agent Carter,” as Hayley Atwell’s titular heroine delves deeper into a web of conspiracies and secrets that may leave her feeling betrayed by those she trusts most, as the below preview from the Jan. 27 episode illustrates.

After much anticipation, the first full-length look at director Josh Trank's "Fantastic Four" reboot is finally here, and it's already apparent that the film will have a different look and feel than its 2005 predecessor. Most notably, rather than starring celebrity heavy-hitters like Jessica Alba and Chris Evans, Trank's version features a group of young, up-and-coming actors known for their indie work. Making up the super hero team is Miles Teller as Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic, Kate Mara as Sue Storm/Invisible Woman, Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm/The Human Torch, and Jamie Bell as Ben Grimm/The Thing. Teller recently starred in the Academy Award Best Picture nominee, "Whiplash," an indie favorite where his co-star, J.K. Simmons, is sweeping the awards race. Jordan rose to fame after a breakout performance in "Fruitvale Station," which debuted at Sundance in 2013. Bell is fresh off a supporting role in the South Korean hit, »

It's clobberin' time!O.K., so The Thing doesn't actually say his famous catchphrase in this first trailer for "Fantastic Four" ... and that's probably a good thing.This reboot is clearly more serious than the Jessica Alba, Michael Chiklis, Chris Evans and Ioan Gruffudd films from 2005 and 2007, this time with Kate Mara, Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell stepping into the supersuits.Director Josh Trank opened up about the film with Collider, saying this new version will "fall in line more with a Cronenberg-ian science fiction tale of something horrible happening to your body and [it] transforming out of control," a la "The Fly."The trailer doesn't do much to explain the plot, but Trank says you can expect a "modern telling" of how the four main characters got their superpowers. And speaking of those powers, we gotta say, they look pretty cool in the brief glimpses we see above. »

There has been much speculation surrounding the movie and the lack of news coming out of the set, but all worries have been cast aside now that we’re getting our first look at the world of the Fantastic Four in this teaser. And we have to say we’re pleasantly pleased with the tone and mood Trank has set up for his re-imagining of the Marvel team.
Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan, and Jamie Bell star as the titular foursome who are physically transformed after they teleport to an alternate universe where untold dangers await them. With their lives and physical nature irreversibly shaken, the four must learn to work together as a team to save Earth from a friend-turned-enemy.
Judging from this footage, we’re going »

The teaser for the reboot of the Fantastic Four series is here! And the first official look at the film shows a very different (and darker) version of the original live adaptation that help made Chris Evans a star.
In the new series, Michael B. Jordan takes on the role of Johnny Storm (a.k.a Human Torch). He and his That Awkward Moment co-star, Miles Teller, who plays Mr. Fantastic, are bringing a new vibe to the franchise.
Rounding out the team are Kata Mara as Sue Storm (a.k.a. Invisible Woman) and Jamie Bell as The Thing.
While it’s not confirmed, the new film looks to take place in the same universe as the X-Men franchise. However, X-Men producer Simon Kinberg refuted that idea. What is clear is that the new film directed by Josh Trank is more grounded in reality -- a trend »
The Fantastic Four trailer is here! A superhero project that some are eyeing rather dubiously has today revealed a first glimpse at the project.
Give it a watch below:
Gone are the bright colours and camp one-liners of the previous movies which starred Jessica Alba and Chris Evans, replaced with a more muted palette and serious tone. It feels somewhere between the trailer for Batman Begins and Interstellar.
Director Josh Trank, who also gave us Chronicle, has recently stated that he approached the project as though it were not a Superhero movie but instead a ‘hard science fiction’ film. He went on to say that he believes his version of the four friends who find themselves gifted with extraordinary powers has more in common with a David Cronenberg film; if this is the case we can’t wait to see Jamie Bell pull a Goldblum as he morphs into The Thing. »

Finally, the teaser trailer for Josh "Chronicle" Trank's new take on Fantastic Four you've been waiting for is here. It's definitely darker than the Chris Evans / Jessica Alba / Ioan Gruffudd / Michael Chiklis era, and it's bound to get you excited.Featuring Whiplash's Miles Teller as Reed Richards / Mr. Fantastic, House Of Cards' Kate Mara as Susan Storm / Invisible Woman, Fruitvale Station's Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm / Human Torch and Billy Elliot himself, Jamie Bell as Ben Grimm / The Thing, the fourth live-action Fantastic Four film – you'd forgotten this one, hadn't you? – has Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes' Toby Kebbell as Victor Domashev / Doom.It’s a teaser in the grand tradition – its almost avowed dedication to keeping the big reveals at elongated arm’s length may leave you with more questions than answers – but its serious, sombre tone will almost certainly be nothing »
Fantastic Four has premiered its first trailer online.
The new Fantastic Four film is reportedly inspired by Marvel's Ultimate comic book series.
The movie will open in cinemas on August 6. Watch star Miles Teller discuss his involvement in the series below: »
