Paul Bettany: ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ Is ‘Biggest Thing Marvel Have Ever Done’

15 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Leave it to the Vision to be omniscient.

According to Paul Bettany, “Avengers: Age of Ultron” is the grandest film in the Marvel universe.

“This is the biggest thing Marvel have ever done,” he told the Radio Times. “It was enormous. I remember we were at Comic-Con and they showed a portion of the footage, and I was just gobsmacked. And I looked down the row and every one of the Avengers was the same, including Samuel Jackson. And his whole modus operandi is ‘I’ve seen everything before, I’m the most chilled out, relaxed man and I’ve seen everything,’ and he was as knocked out as anyone. It’s huge.”

The film will reportedly set a new VFX shot count record for a Marvel film.

Bettany, who will play the red-faced android hero the Vision in “The Avengers” sequel, also described “Age of Ultron’s” set as »

'Avengers 2' to Introduce a New 'Guardians' Character?

23 January 2015 7:40 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier today, Schmoes Know's sources revealed that Andy Serkis' character in Avengers: Age of Ultron is Ulysses Klaw, which had been rumored ever since the first trailer surfaced. The site also teased that they had another scoop dropping today, which, as it turns out, reveals that a female character from the Marvel comics will make an appearance in this Phase Two sequel. Be warned, there may be potential Spoilers below, so read on at your own risk.

You may recall that, back in July, Avengers: Age of Ultron director Joss Whedon revealed that there are four main female characters in the sequel. We already know about Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), but fans were wondering about the identity of the fourth female character. According to Schmoes Know, that character is Mantis.

Andy Serkis’ Avengers: Age of Ultron character details revealed?

23 January 2015 3:33 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Since the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer arrived a few months ago, there’s been a lot of speculation that Andy Serkis will be playing the Black Panther villain, Ulysses Klaw. This has now seemingly been confirmed, with Schmoes Know reporting that Serkis will indeed portray Klaw, as well as offering up some details about the character.

According to the site, the Marvel Cinematic Universe version is an amalgamation of Ulysses Klaw and his father Fritz Klae. In the comics Klae was an antagonist for the Howling Comandos in World War II, as well as being allies with Baron Von Strucker who appears in Age of Ultron, played by Thomas Kretschmann. The source claims “Fritz could possibly have a small appearance in the film or a passing reference, but most of his attributes will be given to Serkis’ Klaw.”

Paul Bettany teases Avengers: Age of Ultron’s “enormous” scale

23 January 2015 2:26 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Paul Bettany, who has played Tony Stark’s A.I. butler J.A.R.V.I.S. multiple times in the Marvel cinematic universe, will be showing up in the flesh for Avengers: Age of Ultron, as popular character and android The Vision. We still know very little about his role, and have yet to see him in any of the footage that’s been released, but judging by these new comments, Bettany will be involved in some pretty big action scenes.

Bettany spoke with RadioTimes.com, and teased Age of Ultron‘s massive scale:

“I’ve never been on a bigger set on my entire life than in The Avengers {Age of Ultron]. One [part] seemed to be the corner of a town, with helicopter cameras, and drone cameras flying about. I just haven’t seen anything that big, so it was like being a kid on a film set again. »

23 January 2015 1:02 PM, PST | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

It’s an embarrassment of riches for fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (McU), dear readers. Hot on the heels of last week’s examination of the Ant-Man teaser trailer, this week’s Trailer Trashin’ looks at what will probably be the biggest movie of summer 2015, Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Premise: With S.H.I.E.L.D. destroyed and the Avengers needing a hiatus from stopping threats, Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) attempts to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program with Ultron (James Spader), a self-aware, self-teaching, artificial intelligence.

'Avengers 2': Andy Serkis Character Details Revealed?

23 January 2015 12:50 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When the teaser trailer debuted in October for Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron, fans got their first look at Andy Serkis' mystery character. After seeing that brief shot, many fans had a hunch about who the actor was really playing. Then the second trailer gave us an even better look at the actor in costume. Now Schmoes Know's sources confirm that the actor is playing Ulysses Klaw. Please note: This hasn't been officially confirmed by Marvel yet.

The site's sources reveal that this version of Klaw is actually an "amalgamation" of both Klaw and his father from the comic books, Fritz Klaue, who has been connected to the villainous Baron Von Strucker, played by Thomas Kretschmann, and the Howling Commandos, which will also be referenced in the sequel. Here's what the unidentified source had to say, revealing that Klaw's father may also pop up in The Avengers 2: »

Nominated for Nothing: 'Snowpiercer'

23 January 2015 11:02 AM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Just about every year, brilliant movies are utterly ignored by the Oscars. The Searchers, Groundhog Day, Breathless, King Kong, Casino Royale, Touch of Evil, Caddyshack, Mean Streets, The Big Lebowski, Blackfish — the Academy has a long history of overlooking comedies, action movies, horror flicks, hard-boiled genre pics, artsy foreign films, and documentaries that aren’t about World War II. Before the ceremony, we’ll be taking a closer look at films that were too small, too weird, or perhaps simply too awesome for the Academy Awards. These are the Non-Nominees.

Week in Review: Martin Scorsese’s ‘Silence’ is finally getting made

23 January 2015 10:26 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

One of the most anticipated films of 2015 is Martin Scorsese’s Silence. Although that anticipation was under the presumption that Silence would actually come out this year, let alone be made. The film has been in pre-production for ages, by Marty’s account, nearly two decades, but the film is finally coming together with funding from Fábrica de Cine and SharpSword Films, Deadline reported.

Silence stars Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver (yes, he’s in Everything now) as two Jesuit priests in 17th Century Japan on a mission to spread Christianity and locate their mentor, played by Liam Neeson. The pair face incredible, violent persecution while on their journey, and the film has been likened to Scorsese’s last East Asia epic, Kundun.

Silence is based on a 1966 novel by Shūsaku Endō and is adapted from a script by Jay Cocks, who worked with Scorsese on his last long delayed period piece, »

Paul Bettany: 'Avengers 2' Is Biggest Marvel Movie Ever

23 January 2015 7:40 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Paul Bettany has provided his voice as J.A.R.V.I.S., Tony Stark's indelible A.I., in four movies, including Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Iron Man 3 and Marvel's The Avengers. But in Avengers: Age of Ultron, he will finally appear in the flesh as Vision, and it was the first time he actually got to interact with the ensemble cast on set. Speaking with Radio Times, the actor was able to provide a bird's eye view into the production, and he was beyond impressed with what he saw. He even claims that its the most ambitious project Marvel has attempted yet:

The Super Bowl is a little more than a week away, but a racy Carl's Jr. ad featuring the 22-year-old model is already making headlines.

Some women's groups are upset, saying that the ad objectifies women, but this is just the latest in a series of Carl's Jr. ads to feature a beautiful celebrity in questionable poses. Former celebrities have included Heidi Klum, Kate Upton, Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian.
