Avengers 2: Scarlet Witch Will Be More Of A Dancer Than A Fighter

1 hour ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

In Joss Whedon.s The Avengers: Age of Ultron, we can surely expect to see characters like Iron Man, Thor, Hulk and Captain America getting into fisticuffs with various henchmen and bad guys, but action sequences will be a very different deal when Elizabeth Olsen.s Scarlet Witch is involved. After all, she is more of a spell-caster than a punch-thrower. What.s interesting about that separation, though, was how it impacted the approach to the character in the film, and as such, Olsen was told to see the character as more of a dancer than a fighter. This interesting bit of background was recently provide by Elizabeth Olsen during an interview with Empire Magazine, where she went in depth about playing one the Marvel Cinematic Universe.s newest characters in The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Discussing the way she went about moving in the skin of Scarlet Witch, the »

Joss Whedon says it's "very doubtful" he will direct Avengers: Infinity War

12 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Joss Whedon has admitted that it is "very doubtful" that he will direct Avengers: Infinity War.

The filmmaker told Empire that he is unlikely to return to the Marvel franchise for a while after this year's Avengers: Age of Ultron, as he is looking to focus on his own projects.

"I couldn't imagine doing this again," he said. "It's enormously hard, and it be, by then, a good five years since I created anything that was completely my own. So it's very doubtful that I would take on the two-part Infinity War movie that would eat up the next four years of my life."

He added: "I obviously still want to be a part of the Marvel Universe - I love these guys - but it ain't easy. This year has been more like running three shows than any year of my life. It is bonkers."

26 January 2015 3:46 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

While Elizabeth Olsen undoubtedly looked stunned when she arrived at the Christian Dior runway show as part of Paris Fashion Week on Monday, there was one notable accessory missing from her ensemble: her engagement ring.  The 25-year-old star was all smiles as she posed for pics sans any bling on that figure, opting to accessorize with delicate gold jewelry instead. The Godzilla actress rocked an Lbd teamed with a green tweed jacket, which she paired with pointed-toe pumps while wearing her hair pulled back in a low style.  Olsen got engaged to Boyd Holbrook in March 2014, although this is the second time the blond beauty has been spotted without her ring as breakup rumors continue to »

Avengers: Elizabeth Olsen On Scarlet Witch's Powers, Romance With 'The Vision', And More

26 January 2015 3:15 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

We heard from Aaron Taylor-Johnson earlier today about his role as Quicksilver in Avengers: Age of Ultron, and now the actress who plays his twin sister has shared some new details about the highly anticipated sequel. Talking to Empire Magazine, Elizabeth Olsen revealed her and Joss Whedon's unique approach to playing the Scarlet Witch. "The coolest thing about Scarlet Witch is, because you've never seen her, we got to create how she moves. Joss was really inspired by dancers, and so he knew that he wanted to change visually how she moves, to be more like a dancer than a fighter. I didn't really have to do much stunt training. Instead I trained with a dancer, Jenny White, which was its own kid of soreness, but it wasn't what I thought it would be." A lot of fans have been surprisingly critical about the inclusion of "The Twins", claiming »

Aaron Taylor Johnson talks Quicksilver, East-European accents and being compared to X-Men: Days of Future Past

26 January 2015 3:00 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’ve already brought you the two Empire covers for Avengers: Age of Ultron, some images and a few notes from Joss Whedon talking about not directing Avengers: Infinity War and threatening to kill all of the Avengers. And now we bring you some notes from an interview with Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who will be playing Quicksilver in the movie.

“He’s very agitated because everything runs too slowly for him,” he tells Empire via Cbm. “He’s quick at everything. He’s quick to lose his temper.”

“It’s more about Pietro and Wanda together, a yin/yang where he’s very physical and very protective of her and she’s very internal and always mothering him,” he says on his relationship with Scarlet Witch, played by fellow Godzilla star Elizabeth Olsen. “Pietro doesn’t fricking trust anybody. The only one he cares for and at the end of the »

'Avengers 2' Opening Scene Revealed; Thanos Plans Teased

26 January 2015 12:57 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier today, we showed you the Empire Magazine covers that feature the main cast members assembling from Avengers: Age of Ultron, the highly-anticipated Marvel Phase Two sequel that hits theaters May 1. The magazine also has a description of the sequel's opening scene, confirming a rumor from early last year that the movie will kick off with a Bond-like action sequence that finds the Avengers paying a visit to an Eastern European castle where Hydra's Baron Von Strucker (Thomas Kretschmann) has been hiding out with Loki's scepter. The sequence is described as a, "pre-credits Bondian blow-out," with the magazine also offering a detailed description of the scene that follows, where the heroes are en route to Avengers Tower for their victory celebration. This was teased in the previously-released trailers. Be warned there may be potential Spoilers below, so read on at your own risk.

Joss Whedon talks the fate of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in Avengers: Age of Ultron, “I f***ing kill them”

26 January 2015 11:44 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

If there is one thing that Joss Whedon is famous for, it’s killing off popular characters to get a reaction from his audience. Last time round it was Agent Coulson, but who will it be this time in Avengers: Age of Ultron?

Well, in an interview Empire, Whedon clearly has deadly plans for not just one member, but the whole team.

“I f*cking kill them. All of them. I do it. Marvel don’t even realise it. When they see the final cut, they’ll be like, ‘Omigod! What are we going to do for Phase 3? We literally have no one! Except Ant-Man!’ They’re going to be so pissed.”

Of course, Whedon is kidding. Right?

Heroes Assembled in Empire's 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron' Cover

26 January 2015 8:41 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

We've already seen a good amount of footage from The Avengers: Age of Ultron thanks to the teaser trailer and the most recent second trailer, but one thing we haven't seen is a sweet shot of all the superheroes together. But that changes today with the cover for the latest issue of Empire. It's a Photoshopped image of them together, so it's not from the movie, but it's cool to see Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and Thor (Chris Hemsworth) standing with new characters like Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson). But no sign of Paul Bettany as The Vision yet. Look! Here's the magazine cover for The Avengers: Age of Ultron from Empire: And here's a close-up cover image of the titular villain as well: Take a closer look at the second trailer for The Avengers: Age of Ultron right here.

'Avengers 2' Magazine Covers; Joss Whedon Talks Ultron

26 January 2015 8:35 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With Avengers: Age of Ultron hitting theaters in just a few short months, the main cast members have all assembled on the cover of Empire Magazine's latest issue, including Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Captain America (Chris Evans), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson). Empire has also released a limited edition collector's cover that gives us a closer look at Ultron (James Spader). Director Joss Whedon also revealed that he is currently working on a number of Ultron scenes in post-production, joking that he has taken the villain's side, for the moment.

"I've been working on a lot of Ultron scenes, so I'm very anti-Avengers right now. You can't write someone if you don't love them and I've come to the conclusion that Ultron is right. The Avengers need to die."

2015 Sundance Trading Card Series: #22. Antonio Campos (James White)

26 January 2015 8:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Eric Lavallee: Name me three of your favorite “2014 discoveries” …

Antonio Campos: Black Mirror (TV series). People Who Eat Darkness (Book). Nilsson Schmilsson by Harry Nilsson (album).

Lavallee: Christopher Abbott plays the titular James White (he has also contributed to two other films in your canon). What facets/traits was Josh Mond looking for in his lead?

Campos: A better looking version of himself.

Lavallee: The Borderline Films crew have a knack for unearthing talent (we’ve seen the likes of Rosemarie DeWitt, Ezra Miller, Zoe Lister Jones, Elizabeth Olsen, David Call, Emory Cohen, Michael Stuhlbarg) make debuts parading through your films. Could you discuss the casting process and ultimately, are the roles assigned by a jury vote of three?

Campos: We trust our casting directors when they say someone is great. When it comes to actually auditioning, we’ve learned so much over the years from Susan Shopmaker on »

The covers meanwhile offer up both a very detailed view of Ultron and our first look at the entire team assembled. Sadly, The Vision is still missing despite the fact that he’s been seen a number of times in leaked promo art. »

DVD Review: 'Very Good Girls'

24 January 2015 7:27 AM, PST | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★☆☆☆ Very Good Girls (2014) has all the trappings of an indie coming-of-age story: a hip soundtrack commandeered by musician Jenny Lewis; fresh-faced and innocent actresses; dreamy cinematography; just a dash of drama to appropriately weight the plot. This is all well and good but in a sea of films of this ilk, it gets drowned in its own good intentions. Naomi Foner's first outing as writer and director falls by the wayside very quickly, feeling like a exercise in derivative perceptions on what it means to become a woman. The narrative focuses on Lily (Dakota Fanning) and Gerry (Elizabeth Olsen) who are on their last summer vacation before college.
