Today's (October 1) Thor #1 introduces a new, female version of the character - whose identity has not been revealed - after the original former Thunder God is declared unworthy to wield his magical hammer, Mjolnir.
"I've been writing [Thor] for two years, and I don't plan on going anywhere anytime soon," Aaron told The Wall Street Journal.
"Anyone who's been reading my stuff can see that there's a lot of tracks being laid for future stories. I've been writing for the long term this whole time. »
Fox has pushed Fantastic Four back into August of next year, which means the studio will have a bit more time to promote it (and a whole run at San Diego Comic Con if they want to go this time). The last time these characters were in movies, Captain America (Chris Evans) was the Human Torch, Jessica Alba was his sister and the movies had a very campy tone.
“It’s different in every way,” Teller told Vulture last night at a screening of his new film Whiplash, hosted by the Cinema Society and Brooks Brothers. “All those actors were a lot older, their characters were in different places. The tone of this film is completely different: We don’t »
The last big missing piece in Marvel's Agent Carter has been put into place with today's news that Dominic Cooper is set to reprise the role of S.H.I.E.L.D. co-founder Howard Stark in the period TV series.
Agent Carter will mark Cooper's third turn as Tony Stark's (Robert Downey Jr.) father in Marvel's live-action properties. He first appeared as the brilliant inventor in Captain America: The First Avenger, and was on-hand for the experiment that turned Steve Rogers into a super soldier and eventual Avenger. Cooper also had a brief cameo as Howard Stark in the Agent Carter Marvel One-Shot for a pivotal scene that marked the formal beginning of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Following prolonged negotiations, Dominic Cooper is officially joining ABC's midseason drama Agent Carter. Marvel made the announcement Tuesday, confirming that the actor will reprise his role as Howard Stark from Captain America: The First Avenger. Cooper reprised the character in a cameo in Marvel's Agent Carter one-shot, which served as the origin story for what would become ABC'sAgents of Shield bridge show. Photos: Faces of Fall 2014 Based on the one-shot on the Iron Man 3 DVD, the drama, from showrunners Tara Butters and Michele Fazekas (Resurrection), stars Hayley Atwell and takes place a year after the events of Captain America: The First Avenger. It follows Steve Rogers' (Chris Evans) girlfriend Agent Carter (Atwell) as she builds her career as a

Miles Teller understands that moviegoers may be suffering from superhero fatigue by the time the "Fantastic Four" reboot rolls around next summer. But the future Mr. Fantastic says that the upcoming flick is unlike its predecessors -- and will set itself apart from the comic book pack.
In an interview with Vulture, Teller opened up about the new "Four," telling the site that "It's different in every way" from the 2005 feature (and 2007 sequel, "Rise of the Silver Surfer") starring Jessica Alba and Chris Evans.
"All those actors were a lot older, their characters were in different places," Teller explained. "The tone of this film is completely different: We don't have Michael Chiklis in a big Styrofoam thing, and I think that [a more grounded approach] is what people are into."
The actor compared the reboot to the tone established by "X-Men: First Class," telling Vulture that the movie is "dealing with these characters but »

While promoting his "Kill the Messenger" movie, Jeremy Renner spoke about his Marvel contract, revealing that the studio has discussed a potential "Hawkeye" spin-off movie. "I think most actors will sign on to do, like... 'Captain America' 1-3 and then 'The Avengers' 1-3, and then you're done," he explained. "For me, I signed on to 'The Avengers' 1-3 and then 'Hawkeye,' in case they want to do a 'Hawkeye' spin-off." When the topic switched to "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" and how the film gave equal time to both Captain America (Chris Evans) And Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Renner said: "Right. I think that's why they want a Hawkeye/Widow movie so bad." It's clear by his comments that Marvel has no interest in giving Renner his own "Hawkeye" film, but there's apparently lots of interest in having Hawkeye team up with Black Widow for their own spin-off. »
As Jeremy Renner continues to make the press rounds for his upcoming thriller Kill the Messenger, the actor cleared the air about a certain Captain America 3 rumor and teased new details about Avengers: Age of Ultron. And, despite claiming that he wasn't really interested in a Hawkeye solo movie last week, Renner does confirmed that he is signed on for one should Marvel deem it necessary. He then teases a possible Hawkeye/Black Widow team-up movie.
Most actors who take on a major role in any Marvel movie sign multi-picture deals that will span several years. When asked about his own Marvel contract, Jeremy Renner says the deal includes Marvel's The Avengers, next year's Avengers: Age of Ultron and The Avengers 3, along with a possible Hawkeye spin-off movie:
Having been absent from Marvel’s slate of Phase Two movies, Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye is set to return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in May alongside the rest of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in Avengers: Age of Ultron, and the actor has taken a moment to discuss his role in the hotly-anticipated sequel during an interview with Starplus (via Cbm).
“It was fun to finally kind of discover who Clint Barton is a little bit. We have some good secrets revealed. I think everything that was great about the first Avengers, is exponentially expressed in this one. From the action, to the making fun of itself, and there’s a lot more time spent with the Avengers together, after being so separated in the first one. We’ve got some great new goodies, and some good baddies.”
There’s also been talk that Hawkeye could reunite with Chris Evans »

Ben Affleck made an appearance on Live! with Kelly and Michael earlier today to promote Gone Girl, and as you might expect, talk soon turned to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. These questions were a little different however, and the actor was quizzed on working out to become the Caped Crusader, revealing some surprising inspiration in the process! "I have been getting bigger, yeah. I have been working out a lot. These are not roles that you can do and not exercise for. Audiences have now increasing expectations. Like, in the 50s, you could just be like Burt Lancaster and tall. That was ok, but now you see guys like Chris Hemsworth and Chris Evans and all these guys whose bodies are just, you think, 'How is that even possible?'" Comparisons have been made between those two cast members of The Avengers and the very buff Ben Affleck, »
As if you needed another reason to head to theaters to see Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, we have reports that the first Avengers: Age of Ultron teaser trailer will play ahead of it in theaters. If you are Russian, you will definitely get to see the Avengers teaser, as Warner Bros. Russia has announced that it will be attached to the space odyssey in that country. It makes sense for that to be true here in the States as well, given that Interstellar’s November 7 (U.S.) release date puts it almost exactly six months ahead of Age of Ultron’s May 1, 2015 (also U.S.) release date. That’s about when the Marvel PR machine starts rolling things out. They also usually put their trailers online a few days before theatrical release, so come back at the end of October/beginning of November to watch it here.

"...when 'Tony Stark' tries to jump start a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including 'Iron Man', 'Captain America', 'Thor', 'The Incredible Hulk', 'Black Widow' and 'Hawkeye', are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance.
"As the villainous 'Ultron' emerges, it is up to 'The Avengers' to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.

We live in an age where anticipating the release of a trailer is almost as exciting as anticipating the release of a film. Certainly Avengers: Age of Ultron has had no difficulty in drumming up excitement, even with the release date still quite far away. Now we are hearing that the very first trailer for that much anticipated film might surface within the next few months.
According to Warner Bros. Russia (via Comic Book Movie), the first theatrical trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron will be attached to the beginning of Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, coming to theaters on November 7. With the added knowledge that many trailers are released online about a week in advance of their theatrical premieres, that means we might be getting our first official glimpse of the movie at the end of October.

Will we see the first teaser trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron in late October or early November? That's what a new Russian website is claiming, as they confirm that the first footage from this highly-anticipated Marvel sequel will be attached to Interstellar, in theaters November 7th.
This, of course, has not been confirmed by Marvel or Disney. FilmPro Russian recently attended a Cinema Expo held in their country, where the information was revealed during a Warner Bros. exhibit. Translated, this is what they claim:
It has been speculated that Marvel and Disney are planning a marketing strategy for Avengers: Age of Ultron that is similar to the first Marvel's The Avengers. The full-length trailer for that blockbuster debuted in October of 2011, a year before the film's release. »
If Disney's marketing strategy for the highly-anticipated Avengers: Age of Ultron is planned similar to the original superhero assembly, then we should have an official trailer, among other things, sometime next month. In fact, Warner Bros. Russia announced today (via @antovolk) that the teaser will be attached to Christopher Nolan's Interstellar (and most likely Big Hero 6), which will hit theaters on November 7. But given that trailers are usually released online about a week before their theatrical runs, it's safe(r) to say we should be dissecting and analyzing the Age of Ultron trailer by the end of October. In the meantime, some high-quality set photos have recently surfaced featuring Chris Evans suited up as Captain America filming in South Korea, which took place back in April.

Fox got the new small screen superhero TV season underway this past Monday with the premiere of the hotly-anticipated Batman prequel series Gotham, which enjoyed strong ratings, pulling a 3.2 rating with adults aged 18-49, and 8.2 million viewers from its highly competitive time slot. The pilot episode seemed to have a lot of admirers, although Flickering Myth’s Anthony Stokes and Anghus Houvouras were both unimpressed – check out their reviews here and here.

Set for release in the United States on May 1, 2015. »
A new rumor claims that The Avengers 3 is going to do what quite a few franchise sequels have pulled in the recent past. It will be split into a two-part movie.
This is a trend that started with the Twilight Saga, as the final book in the series was split into The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2. Harry Potter followed suit with The Deathly Hallows, and it has continued through such franchises as The Hobbit, originally planned as a two film prequel but turned into a three part epic, and Divergent. Anything to squeeze a little extra money out of a franchise.
Splitting The Avengers 3 into two parts is an interesting conceit, since its not based on a novel series, though it could be based on an expansive, existing storyline in the comics. And a good cliffhanger never hurt ticket sales. »
Recently, "Avengers 2: Age of Ultron" Hawkeye star, Jeremy Renner (left), chatted with Access Hollywood in the new clip (below) and revealed some new description spoilers for the new flick. It turns out that we can expect it to be even better and have more action and comic relief. We're also going to see a lot of secrets get revealed, and more. In the clip, Jeremy told them: "I think everything that worked in the first one is exponentially gonna be better in this one. The comedic relief, action is gonna be bigger... There is more time spent with all the Avengers together as a unit on and off the clock if you will. Which is actually really fun. A lot of secrets are revealed and more secrets are imposed." Check it out,below. The movie stars: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, »
While doing press for his upcoming thriller Kill the Messenger, Jeremy Renner offered a few updates on his upcoming projects Avengers: Age of Ultron, Mission: Impossible 5 and the sequel to 2012's The Bourne Legacy in an interview with Access Hollywood.
"I think everything that worked in the first one is exponentially going to be better in this one. I think the comedic relief, I think the action, is going to be bigger. There is more time spent with all of the Avengers together as a unit on and off the clock, if you will, which is actually really fun. A lot of secrets are revealed and more secrets are posed."
