Chris Evans talks Age Of Ultron

1 hour ago | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

No stranger to the role of Steve Rogers/Captain America after developing the character over three films, Chris Evans tells us that there is still more to learn about the quintessential American hero in Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron.” “Steve Rogers is still trying to figure out where he belongs,” says Evans. “He’s always been a soldier and he’s fit in that format. He enjoys structure and he enjoys having orders and a plan, and without that he does feel a bit aimless, but he is still searching for whether or not he can have a life outside of being Captain America. He’s been of service for so long that trying to figure out what he would do without his uniform and shield is a bit of a puzzle.” Post Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” Evans points out that the world has changed for The Avengers team. »

New Avengers: Age Of Ultron Featurette Reveals It’s All Tony’s Fault

22 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

You didn’t think we’d forgotten about Avengers in the midst of all this Star Wars madness, did you? With the film’s international rollout kicking off in just a couple of days, Marvel has released a new behind-the-scenes Avengers: Age of Ultron featurette that delves into the dilemma that kicks the whole plot into gear: Tony Stark’s creation of the titular robot Ultron. Stark builds Ultron as a prototype, a way to possibly never have to get back in the Iron Man suit himself again. The seeds of this storyline were planted in Iron Man 3, where we saw Tony tinkering with the idea of drone suits, but Ultron is different in that delves into the arena of Artificial Intelligence. Of course, as with all brushes with A.I., the robot has ideas of his own, thus setting off a series of events for which only one »

Marvel movies ranked from worst to best: Iron Man to Guardians of the Galaxy

18 April 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

It's hard to believe it now, but a decade ago the Marvel Cinematic Universe was merely a twinkle in Kevin Feige's eye. Today, McU offerings are blockbuster staples, with the likes of Iron Man, Captain America, Thor and more providing film fans with thundering entertainment and a connected universe culminating in the Avengers movies.

With Age of Ultron on the horizon, we've gone back through the 10 Marvel films to-date to rank them all from worst to best. Read on to find out our verdict, then join the discussion in the comments below.

10. Iron Man 2 (2010)

If Iron Man was a savvy exercise in kick-starting a shared cinematic universe, then its sequel brought everything crashing back down with a sharp, painful thud. Overstuffed with new characters, multiple plot strands and far-too-much in the way of Avengers set-up, Iron Man 2 is a step down from its predecessor in practically every way. »

Chris Evans May Stick With Marvel Longer Than We Thought

17 April 2015 2:21 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

When Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters next month, this will be Chris Evans’ fourth appearance as Captain America (not including his cameo in Thor: The Dark World) since his debut in 2011. Although we'll still see plenty of the patriotic superhero in the coming years, it’s been rumored that once Evans’ Marvel contract is finished, he’ll leave the Marvel Cinematic Universe permanently. However, it sounds like he’s recently had a change of heart and may stick around as Steve Rogers for a little longer. Last year, Evans mentioned that he planned to retire from acting once his contract finished so he can focus on directing. In a recent interview with Gay Times Magazine (via Nerd Reactor), however, he suggests he’s amenable to staying in the McU. Evans explained: I think it’s almost like high school. You’ »

Scarlett Johansson: 'Captain America: Civil War is totally unique'

17 April 2015 2:09 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Scarlett Johansson has hinted that Captain America: Civil War is completely unlike any other Marvel Studios film.

The actress will reprise her role as the Black Widow alongside Chris Evans as Captain America and Robert Downey Jr as Iron Man in the 2016 film.

Johansson told Collider that she was quite impressed with the screenplay for the third Captain America film.

"I have read the script for Civil War," she said. "You know, the film has a very different feeling than anything of Marvel's that I've read or been a part of before."

The actress went on to hint: "These films are - I don't think darker is the right word because there's definitely always going to be some kind of levity, and that comes in a form of humour or hope.

"When you compare these films to like Batman, it's a different feeling obviously, it's a different audience experience, but »

Gary Collinson on the 2015 superhero box office showdown…

Revisiting Last Year’S Predictions

Before we turn our attention to this year’s line-up of superhero movies, we’ll start as always by casting our eye back twelve months to last year’s predictions, as Marvel continued the build to Avengers: Age of Ultron with Captain America: The Winter Soldier as well as launching the cosmic side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Guardians of the Galaxy, Fox brought together its two X-Men timelines for X-Men: Days of Future Past, Sony killed the Spider-Man franchise (again) with The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Last Year’s Prediction - “As for the biggest earner of the year, I can’t look past The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and I expect the sequel to pull in around $700 million, followed by Captain America: The Winter Soldier and X-Men: Days of Future Past with around $550 – $600 million apiece (if »

17 April 2015 9:34 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

We’re thirteen days out from the opening of “Avengers: Age of Ultron” – it begins screening early on April 30th, a day ahead of its official release date – which means we’re in the midst of being crushed by the marketing forces of Marvel and Disney. Today brings one new clip, cast and crew interviews from the press rounds, and a couple new featurettes on the film. First up, ComicBookMovie brings us a short new clip with Captain America and Maria Hill – Chris Evans and Cobie Smulders, respectively – laying the expositional groundwork for the sibling villains Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver – Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson. It’s quick and quippy with that trademark Joss Whedon banter. For the less devout fans among us, you’re not imagining things, there has been another Quicksilver in a comic book movie before. Evan Peters played Quicksilver for Bryan Singer’s “X-Men: Days Of Future Past” but fear. »

'Avengers: Age of Ultron' TV Spot Sends in War Machine

16 April 2015 2:43 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While Star Wars: The Force Awakens is ruling the day for Disney with a new trailer and tons of new images, the studio still has time to share another look at Avengers: Age of Ultron, which is less than two weeks away from its debut in theaters across the country. Yesterday, we got to see a new photo of co-star Don Cheadle as James 'Rhodey' Rhodes. Now, in this latest TV Spot, he suits up as his iconic Iron Man character War Machine for some heated action.

This is the first look at War Machine that we've seen so far in the barrage of promotional material that has been released over the course of the last few weeks. It's not yet clear how much of a role Don Cheadle actually plays in this new sequel, or if this is basically all we'll get to see of him. At the beginning of the movie, »

Gary Collinson previews Avengers: Age of Ultron

“I was designed to save the world. People would look to the sky, and see hope… I’ll take that from them first.”

There’s little doubt that – on paper, at least – 2015 is shaping up to be one of the biggest years in memory when it comes to blockbuster cinema, with the likes of Mad Max: Fury Road, Tomorrowland, San Andreas, Jurassic World, Terminator Genisys, Ant-Man, Mission: Impossible 5, The Fantastic Four and The Man from U.N.C.L.E. are all set to grace the big screen over the next few months. But before then Marvel Studios will kick-start the summer movie season in April (or early May, for those in the States) with what is perhaps the most anticipated of all the summer releases, as Joss Whedon reassembles Earth’s Mightiest Heroes for Marvel StudiosAvengers: Age of Ultron.

'Avengers: Infinity War' Will Have More Than One Villain

16 April 2015 1:26 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Director Joss Whedon has been making the press rounds of late to promote his highly-anticipated Marvel Phase Two adventure Avengers: Age of Ultron, arriving in theaters May 1. While this movie appears to be his last Marvel movie in the foreseeable future, the Avengers will return with Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 in 2018 and Avengers: Infinity War Part 2 in 2019, which will be directed by Anthony Russo and Joe Russo. During a recent interview with Vulture, Joss Whedon revealed that Thanos (Josh Brolin) won't be the only villain in the two-part Infinity War movie.

"A lot of people were surprised that Thanos wasn't the villains in Avengers 2, but he was never meant to be. He was always meant to be the puppet-master until he was done doing that, and then he'll be the big villain they face off with. Not solely - I'm sure there'll be plenty more [villains] in that monstrous epic, because »

Chris Evans And Robert Downey Jr. Discuss The Origins Of Captain America: Civil War’s Superhero Rivalry

16 April 2015 10:02 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Iron Man and Captain America may be fighting for the same cause in the imminent Avengers: Age of Ultron, but astute fans know that it won’t be long before the two are at loggerheads with one another. Divided by the superhuman registration act – a controversial law which asks that those with abilities put themselves forward to the government – it’s this conflict of ideologies that will ultimately underpin Captain America: Civil War.

However, upon doing the press rounds for Joss Whedon’s forthcoming sequel, Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans revealed that the monumental spat will stretch beyond government policies, and how their two on-screen personas are binary opposites.

First up, in the red corner, Downey Jr. has his say on the clash:

“[Tony] Stark grew up under the shadow of this very close father son/relationship that Howard [Stark] had with Steve [Rogers, Captain America] so I’m sure that it’s driven by some unconscious motives, »
