A character size chart supposedly from Hot Toys has leaked, giving us a look at a size comparison of the various cahracters in Age of Ultron. It offers a tease of just how big Tony Stark's Hulkbuster will be, as well as Vision and Ultron II. The Hulkbuster armor is eleven freakin' feet tall, and it looks pretty damn burly. It's going to be so cool watching the eight-foot-five Hulk battling this thing! Unfortunately, the three characters here that we all want to get a look at have been blanked out, but that's ok. It gives us something to look forward to when we are overloaded with trailers, TV spots, and clips for the film.
When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart 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 »

Marvel's Victoria Alonso was the keynote speaker at yesterday's Visual Effects Society Production Summit at the W Hollywood, where she revealed that the highly-anticipated sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron has over 3,000 visual effects shots, the most of any movie in Marvel history. This breaks the studio's record of 2,750 VFX shots held by this year's Guardians of the Galaxy, while Captain America: The Winter Soldier had over 2,500 visual effects shots.
She also revealed that the studio will use between seven and 12 visual effects companies in five to seven different countries for Avengers: Age of Ultron, which is currently in post-production. She also addressed the need to hire more women in the visual effects industry.
"There's a lot of you boys out there. Where are the girls? You need to get them here. It's better when it's 50/50. It's okay to allow the ladies in; they are talented and bring you balance. We »

Godzilla is a movie that everyone has heard about, even if they have never seen it. There have been so many manifestations of Godzilla in cinema, from the original 1954 version, to his battles with Mothra, Mechagodzilla and Hedorah, to the terrible 1998 Roland Emmerich version, to this one, 2014’s Godzilla, directed by Monsters director Gareth Edwards.
I was excited about this film since first hearing about it last year, and have been following its progression over the past few months as casting and further details were announced. When the first trailer arrived on the scene a few months ago I was further intrigued, and by the time the film was released this week, I was thoroughly anticipating the re-emergence of one of cinemas most famous monsters. »

A new piece of promo art for Avengers: Age of Ultron has hit the web. Courtesy of ComicBookMovie.com, the art seems to come from Hot Toys, and shows Earth’s Mightiest Heroes lined up with their respective heights listed. It also features an infuriatingly blanked-out look at Vision, Ultron himself, and the long-awaited Hulkbuster armor. Check it out…
While the art doesn’t show much, it does give us an idea of how the Hulkbuster and Ultron will compare to the Avengers. It will be mighty hard for the likes of Iron Man and Captain America to take down the 8 foot tall Ultron, but will Hulk be able to hold his own against Tony’s 11 foot Hulkbuster armor? We’ll just have to wait until Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters to find out…
Avengers: Age of Ultron is set for release in the UK on April 24th 2015 and »

Avengers: Age of Ultron will soon start dumping a ton of toys in stores near you, which means we'll get our first look at a lot of things from the movie in plastic or promo art form. While we've seen Hulkbuster in previous movie concept art, a new image, reportedly from Hot Toys, shows off the full-scale of this weapon designed by Tony Stark to control and capture an outraged Hulk.
We also get a look at all of the characters and their full sizes in this scale chart. It reveals that the 8'5" Hulk will have to contend with an 11' Hulkbuster, which sounds like quite a fight. How will Hulk be able to beat back this iron monstrosity? It also reveals that Ultron stands at a quite tall 8', just 5 inches shorter than the green goliath. Black Widow is the shortest of all Avengers, standing at just 5' »
Infuriatingly, Vision, Hulkbuster and Ultron are all blanked out in the image which seemingly originates from Hot Toys/Sideshow Collectibles. We do at least get a decent look at the costumes worn by the rest of Earth's Mightiest Heroes in Avengers: Age of Ultron as well as how they all match up in terms of size. The image originates from here, though we have to thank @galliettd for the heads up! What do you guys think about this latest piece of promo art? Sound off below! Click on the image below to view the slightly larger version. Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Cobie Smulders, Paul Bettany, James Spader, and Samuel L. Jackson, and is set to be released on May 1st, 2015. »
The Digital Era: Real-time Films From 2000 To Today
40 years before, in 1960, lighter cameras enabled a cinéma vérité-flavored revolution in street realism. By 2000, new digital cameras suggested a whole new set of promises, including telling stories that would have been unimaginable within minimum budgets for features even ten years before. In 2000, film purists warned that digital still didn’t look as good as celluloid, but that didn’t stop at least three innovative filmmakers from boldly going where no filmmaker had gone before. Mike Figgis’ Timecode (2000) was the first star-supported (Salma Hayek, Stellan Skarsgard, Holly Hunter, among many others) single-shot project since Rope, underlining that earlier film’s timelessness. If Run Lola Run could do one story three times, then Timecode would do three or four stories one time: the movie is four separate ninety-minute shots shown all at the same time, each in one quadrant of the screen. Where do you look? »

Industrial Light & Magic, the in-house effects company established by George Lucas in 1975, is still one of the leading forces in the industry and is responsible for working on some of the biggest movies over the past five decades. They are currently working on director Joss Whedon's superhero sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron and will begin working on Star Wars: Episode VII in just a few short weeks as principal photography wraps on J.J. Abrams sci-fi epic. Both movies are expected to push boundaries and break new ground at Ilm.
Disney's acquisition of Lucasfilm means Ilm will be working on more Disney movies, including all of those Marvel sequels and spin-offs that are planned throughout the rest of this decade. To celebrate, and for work purposes, the company has launched a new studio in London, and held a grand opening this past week. President Lynwen Brennan was there to speak with IGN, »

Last night, Marvel Studios dropped a bombshell, with the news that Robert Downey Jr. is in talks to return as Tony Stark in Captain America 3, a movie that will adapt the Civil War comic book story line and forever change the Marvel Cinematic Universe. New details have emerged today that reveal Iron Man may be joined by a number of other Avengers, along with details on the possible title. There will be potential spoilers for Avengers: Age of Ultron below, so read on at your own risk.
Earlier this month, we reported that The Avengers 3 will feature a whole new team of superheroes, which was thought to stem from the main stars' contracts running out, and the desire to save their biggest stars for another huge movie. It's looking more and more like Captain America 3 will be that movie, which Badass Digest is calling "Avengers 2.5."
At the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron, »
Well, here’s some huge news that will have massive ramifications for Phase Three and beyond of the Marvel Cinematic Universe…
Variety is reporting that Robert Downey Jr. is close to signing a $40 million plus deal to reprise the role of Tony Stark for 2016’s Captain America 3, which is set to adapt the Civil War comic book storyline and ” is seen as a way to drive the plots of sequels and new franchises for the next seven years, given the dramatic possibilities it offers for future films. The fallout from the government and Stark’s actions would factor into a new Avengers 4 film and beyond that will assemble new characters being introduced like Ant-Man and Doctor Strange, among others, in their own movies”.

According to Variety, the Iron Man actor is in negotiations to star in the movie, which will play out the Civil War storyline from Marvel's comics.
The crossover event sees Captain American's alter ego Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) and Stark go head-to-head as they disagree over the Superhero Registration Act - a new legislation that forces those with superpowers to make their identity known to the Us government and act under official regulation like a police force.
Stark agrees with the legislation, while his fellow Avenger Rogers feels it threatens civil liberties.
It is thought the introduction of the Civil War arc could lead to other sequels and an Avengers 4 movie over the coming years.
There has been some wicked back and forth about whether or not Marvel is moving forward with Iron Man 4. Most of it has come from Robert Downey Jr., who first claimed the movie was happening, and then recanted his statements. Continuing to promote his new film The Judge, he once again talks about the prospects of a sequel, while saying that Avengers: Age of Ultron may well be the best Marvel movie yet.
"Avengers was another opportunity, but they're not talking about Iron Man 4. I was kind of bombed out to tell the truth, but maybe they've got bigger fish to fry and I trust their overall vision. The funny thing about these genre movies is you'd think they were national secrets. »
Sean Durkin, the director of Elizabeth Olsen's "Martha Marcy May Marlene," is in negotiations with Sony Pictures to direct a big screen adaptation of the "Little House on the Prairie" TV series. The show, which aired on NBC from 1974 to 1983 and starred Michael Landon, focused on a pioneer family living in the 1880s in the American Midwest. It was known for is wholesome values and was loosely based on a series of children's books by Laura Ingalls Wilder, who based it on her childhood. The project was originally set up for David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express), who ended up dropping out. Abi Morgan (The Iron Lady, Shame) wrote the script. »
A Comic Book Movie reader has revealed that Marvel has unveiled a new trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron at New York Comic Con. However, the site also speculates that it's the same footage that was shown at San Diego Comic Con back in July, but that has not been confirmed. At any rate, take a look at the trailer description from an unidentified source below, which opens at a party at Avengers Tower.
"Avengers trailer!!!! Avenger trailer! Y'all y'all y'all. Spoilers! Big ones. I can't do a cut on my phone sorry. Open on big party in the tower! Everyone is trying to lift Thor's hammer. Tony tries, then Tony tries with Rhodey. Clint tries Bruce tries and pretends to hulk out, adorable. Cap tries and juuuuust moves it, Thor looks very scared but then Steve gives up. Nat doesn't even try. Maria is there too! Ultron shows up. »
I was certainly taken aback by Sean Durkin's debut feature Martha Marcy May Marlene back in 2011. Most notably, it put Elizabeth Olsen on the map after delivering a wonderfully complex and honest performance, which is something she unfortunately has not been given the chance to repeat. After I saw that film, I was eager to see what Durkin was going to do next as a director. For a little while, it looked like a Janis Joplin film, starring Nina Arianda, was going to be his next project, but now it seems it will be a big screen adaptation of the hit television series "Little House on the Prairie". Based off of Martha Marcy, Durkin seems like an odd choice. I do not pretend to be a "Little House" expert (and, quite frankly, if you are pretending to be a "Little House" expert, you need to figure out your life »
