Elizabeth Olsen Gets Major Haircut Because The Year of the Bob Ain't Over Yet—Check It Out!

7 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Just by a hair, there's one last bob in 2014! Elizabeth Olsen is the latest celeb to indulge a chin-length chop, swapping out her staple long locks for 2014's most in-demand haircut. Celebrity hairstylist Mark Townsend trimmed the 25-year-old actresses' mane, posting a snapshot of the refreshed cut to Instagram, writing: "Chop chop." And a serious hair crop isn't the only transformation Olsen's hair undertook-- just note the dirty blond, honeyed hue coloring her formerly chestnut locks. And with soft waves and ample texture, we'd say Olsen's take on the bob is one of the best we've seen yet. The Godzilla actress joins the ranks of a seriously chic »

Joss Whedon talks Avengers: Age of Ultron, introducing The Vision, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver

17 December 2014 1:02 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

There’s less than five months to go before Marvel brings the curtain down on Phase Two of the Cinematic Universe with Avengers: Age of Ultron, and the director has been speaking in depth to IGN about the hotly-anticipated sequel, including expanding the world of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes with the introduction of new characters like The Vision, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, and of course the AI villain Ultron.

” I wanted Paul [Bettany] to play this part since before I wanted to make Avengers movies,” states Whedon on The Vision. “He’s just got, let’s face it, it’s about cheek bones, people… Before I took the first job, I said, ‘Well, I don’t know if I’m right for this, or if I want it, or you want me, but in the second one, the villain has to be Ultron, and he has to create the Vision.’ And »

17 December 2014 9:00 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

When Joss Whedon’s Avengers: Age of Ultron was filming in London last summer, I got to visit the set along with a few other reporters.   Like most Marvel set visits, they let us talk to the entire cast and watch filming.  While the production was guarded about what they were willing to tell us, we learned a ton of cool secrets behind what’s bound to be one of the biggest films of 2015.  In The Avengers sequel, Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) reunite to stop Ultron (James Spader) from carrying out his sinister plan.  The film also stars  Elizabeth OlsenAaron Taylor-JohnsonPaul BettanyDon Cheadle,Andy Serkis, and Samuel L. Jackson. While on set, I participated in a great group interview with Joss Whedon.  He talked about how making The Avengers »

Joss Whedon Talks 'Avengers: Age of Ultron,' 'Bigger' Sequels, and Scarlet Witch

17 December 2014 4:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

When we saw Joss Whedon on the set of "Avengers: Age of Ultron" this past summer, he looked like he had been beaten up by the movie's robotic bad guy. Bags drooped under each eye, he moved slowly, looked gaunt, and, while giving his answers the characteristically snappy Joss Whedon delivery, the way that countless characters of his have talked over the years in various TV shows and movies, this time it sounded more forced and battle-hardened. We were inside Avengers Tower, which had been mostly destroyed by Ultron (you can see bits of this in the trainer) and it looked like Whedon was part of that collateral damage.

But who could blame him? This was day 72 of the shoot, and there was at least another month of principle photography left to go. He was tired. And he was also under an incredible amount of pressure. Last time out, Whedon's »

While Avengers: Age of Ultron will bring back some of Marvel's biggest heroes on screen, together first the first time since Marvel's The Avengers, including Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Captain America and Hawkeye, there is one character that fans have gotten more and more excited about with each new appearance.

Paul Bettany Talks J.A.R.V.I.S. & Vision in 'Avengers 2'

15 December 2014 11:18 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

There is still plenty we don't know about Avengers: Age of Ultron, as we inch closer and closer to the May 1, 2015 release date. One aspect of the story that has rarely been touched upon is the inclusion of Vision, which will be played by Paul Bettany, the longtime voice of J.A.R.V.I.S. in the Iron Man movies and Marvel's The Avengers. Earlier this month, a new poster offered us our best look at Vision yet, but the images were later removed, following a promo poster spotted in September. When asked when fans will finally get their first official look at Vision, Paul Bettany had this to say, in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

"It's still a secret. I think all will be revealed very shortly. It's a secret I've kept for about three years, which is really hard, especially with three kids. I'm contractually »

'Avengers 2': New Iron Man Armor Revealed

15 December 2014 6:52 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

If Marvel had wanted to end Tony Stark's story, Iron Man 3 served as the perfect closer. It brought a clean slate to the character, and pretty much wiped out all of his armor. But Robert Downey Jr. will be back to fight another day as the iconic Marvel superhero, which means he needs a whole new outfit in the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron. Hot Toys has now revealed this new suit in full detail.

In Avengers: Age of Ultron, Tony Stark will don the Mark Xliii Armor. And Hot Toys is releasing a premium action figure based on this model. A set of photos deliver our first look at this return to form for the character, which brings an inverted color scheme from its predecessor, the Mark Xlii. You can check out the images below, along with this description from Hot Toys:

Marvel's Phase 3 Started in Last Night's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.

10 December 2014 12:37 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Yesterday we learned that Avengers: Age of Ultron would have a big impact on where the story goes for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. We don't know in what way it will affect the series, but it's going to happen. It looks like there's a lot of stuff going on in S.H.I.E.L.D., and apparently it's all leading up to what happens in Phase 3 of Marvel's cinematic universe. 

Executive producers Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen recently did an interview with Marvel.com. During the interview they talked about the Inhumans element being included, which will lead to Phase 3.

(Spoilers directly below for anyone who did not watch the mid-season finale last night)

It was revealed that Skye (Chloe Bennet) is actually Daisy Johnson, also known as a character named Quake from the comics. It was also revealed that her father (Kyle MacLachlan) is really Calvin Zabo, who you might know as Mister Hyde. »

Watch: New Behind-the-Scenes Clip from 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'

9 December 2014 4:30 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I'm sure most here will be getting in line for Avengers: Age of Ultron no matter what marketing Disney-Marvel throws at us in the next few months, but in case you needed further convincing or just want to get another peek at the film, today brings a 30-second behind-the-scenes featurette about the "bevy of great characters" within the Marvel universe and what those characters mean for Avengers: Age of Ultron. In the clip, director Joss Whedon turns his focus to his two newest Marvel additions, Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) You aren't going to learn too much from this clip, but I'm sure it's enough to tide some of you over for at least a day or so. The one thing I will say, though, is I object to Whedon's statement that "Scarlet Witch's manipulation of objects and Quicksilver's super-speed are not things we've seen in the Marvel universe. »

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. showrunner confirms Avengers: Age of Ultron tie-in

9 December 2014 12:07 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following a successful tie-in with this year’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, wit has now been confirmed that Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will follow suit with Avengers: Age of Ultron , tying in to Joss Whedon’s hotly-anticipated sequel as its second season draws to a close.

“You should expect something,” executive producer Jed Whedon tells Entertainment Weekly. “The Avengers is the big tent that all the franchises play under. Obviously, we’re included in that. I don’t think any movie has the potential to impact us in the way that Captain America 2 did, but there will be connections.”

The second season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will likely come to an end early-to-mid May, so there’s a good chance that we could see the show laying some foundations for the film (which is set for release in the UK on April 24th 2015 and North America on »

'Avengers 2' Will Tie Into 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'

9 December 2014 8:11 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. executive producer Jed Whedon confirmed in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that there will be a tie-in to Avengers: Age of Ultron at some point during Season 2. This doesn't come as a huge surprise, since Season 1 featured several connections to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including two appearances by Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and tie-ins to Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Here's what Jed Whedon had to say in a statement.

"You should expect something. The Avengers is the big tent that all the franchises play under. Obviously, we're included in that."

No specific details were given for how the show would cross over with Avengers: Age of Ultron. However, it won't have nearly as big an impact as Captain America: The Winter Soldier had on the show, where the agency S.H.I.E.L.D. was decimated from the inside by Hydra, forcing Coulson »

12 Most Perfect Castings In Upcoming Comic Book Movies

9 December 2014 1:08 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros.

There have been some absolutely fantastic castings in comic book movies over the years; Christopher Reeve as Superman, Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, Patrick Stewart as Professor X, Ian McKellen as Magneto, Robert Downey, Jr. as Iron Man, Tom Hiddleston as Loki and Chris Evans as Captain America to name but a few.

As a result the comic book movie genre is now one of the most popular in Hollywood and the movies are attracting the biggest and best actors in the world very regularly.

The upcoming movies in the genre are no different. With several castings already known – and some having already filmed their scenes – there’s a lot of excitement and hype around certain characters thanks to the actors who are playing them.

Not all the castings are perfect in the eyes of the fans. Some potentially dodgy castings include Will Smith as Deadshot, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, »
