Avengers: Age Of Ultron Likely To Be Last Marvel Film For Joss Whedon; New Details On Andy Serkis’ Role Revealed

26 January 2015 10:21 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Marvel Studios may have laid out a show-stopping and expansive cinematic blueprint, laying claim to a plethora of release dates from now until the end of time, but the company remained coy on the actors and directors attached to each project so far out from release. Even still, one of the more prominent tidbits of speculation doing the rounds on the Internet has been that the studio has effectively tapped The Winter Soldier‘s Joe and Anthony Russo to helm the two-part Avengers: Infinity War.

Such a switcheroo would therefore make this year’s Avengers: Age of Ultron Joss Whedon’s last outing, and the filmmaker himself backed up this claim by stating that it is “very doubtful” he will oversee Earth’s Mightiest Heroes on the big screen again.

“I couldn’t imagine doing this again. It’s enormously hard, and it [will] be, by [the time I would make ‘Avengers 3 & 4′], a good five years since »

"Avengers: Age Of Ultron" - Close On 'Klaw'

24 January 2015 5:39 AM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Take another look @ actor, motion capture artist Andy Serkis, as Marvel Comics'  'Ulysses Klaw', the 'murderous master of sound' and arch-enemy of the 'Black Panther', from director Joss Whedon's upcoming Marvel Studios' feature "Avengers: Age of Ultron":

"...'Ulysses Klaw' first appears in flashback in Marvel Comics' 'Fantastic Four' #53 (Aug 1966) as a physicist working in the field of applied sonics. 

"Designing a sound transducer to convert sound waves into physical mass, Klaw steals the metal 'vibranium' - a substance known to exist only in certain meteoric deposits in the small African nation of 'Wakanda' - to power his device.

"In doing this, Klaw comes into conflict with the Wakandan ruler/superhero 'T'Chaka', whom Klaw murders in cold blood. T'Chaka's adolescent son 'T'Challa', who followed his father to watch him combat the invaders, then attacks Klaw as the 'Black Panther' to avenge his father, »

'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.

Marvel is reportedly trying to find a way to link their cosmic universe, »

Klaue, Mantis Rumored For "Ultron"?

23 January 2015 5:48 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Two big questions left by the recent second trailer for Marvel's "Avengers: Age of Ultron" has been who is that mysterious woman disrobing in the cave, and who exactly is Andy Serkis' mystery character. Schmoes Know claim to have the answer to both - though take the report with a big grain of salt.

In regards to the mysterious woman, it appears she could be Mantis. If true, it would setup a link between Marvel's Avengers and its cosmic characters as in the comics she has strong ties to Vision, Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver, Thanos and the Guardians of the Galaxy.

In regards to Serkis' character, the most likely guess so far has been that of Ulysses Klaw - a character who will be of much greater importance in a stand alone "Black Panther" movie. Now, the new report suggests that guess is only half right. The site's sources claim »

Rumor: Who Is Andy Serkis Playing in ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’?

23 January 2015 3:58 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

As happy as we were to see Andy Serkis in the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer — because more Andy Serkis is always a good thing — we couldn’t quite figure out what he was doing there. The actor revealed his involvement in the film last year, but declined to say which character he’d be […]

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. »

Trailer Trashin’: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes are Back in Avengers: Age of Ultron

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. But the plan backfires when Ultron decides that humans are the real enemy and sets out to eradicate them from the Earth, and it is up to Iron Man, Steve Rogers/Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Bruce Banner/The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), and Clint Barton/Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), along with support from Nick Fury »

'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: »

23 January 2015 10:35 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

When Andy Serkis popped up in the first trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron, he beared a striking resemblance to the 'Black Panther' villain known as Ulysses Klaw, which led many to speculate that that is who the actor will be portraying in the Joss Whedon-directed sequel. Since then, we've had another trailer in which the Rise of the Planet of the Apes actor is seen wearing a necklace with an actual claw for a pendant, adding credence to everyone's speculation. Well, Schmoes Knows is now confirming Andy Serkis' role to be Klaw (Klaue) in Age of Ultron, and that's not all. The site adds that "this version of Klaw will be a sort of amalgamation of both Klaw and his father in the comics, Fritz Klaue," who has history with the Howling Commandos and Baron von Strucker in the comics "and from what we hear in the film as well. »

George Lucas shares his thoughts on Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer, says Disney scrapped his ideas for the Sequel Trilogy

20 January 2015 12:55 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having retired from the Star Wars franchise, George Lucas has previously stated that he was yet to watch the first trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. However, he has now revealed that he caught the trailer while attending the cinema, telling Page Six: “I saw the trailer. I saw it in a theater because I don’t watch movies online.” When asked if he liked it, he smiled. “Yeah, it was intriguing.”

Meanwhile, Lucas also spoke to Cinema Blend about his initial vision for the Sequel Trilogy (you may recall that Michael Arndt had written treatments for the three films when Lucas was still in charge of the Saga, with J.J. Abrams subsequently rewriting Episode VII’s script with Lawrence Kasdan, and reportedly shifting the focus from new characters to the old guard):
