Stan Lee teases his Avengers: Age of Ultron cameo

6 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In life there are several things that are guaranteed: death, taxes and Stan Lee cameos in Marvel movies.

Over the weekend at Emerald City Comic-Con, the comic book and Marvel legend was asked by an audience member about which of his cameos has been his favourite – and he teases the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron.

“My favourite is one I can’t tell you about, but I’ll give you a hint — don’t miss the new Avengers movie,” he told the audience.

“Almost every day, I get invited to do a cameo in some movie or another that has nothing to do with Marvel,” he added. “They just call me up, ‘hey, we’re doing a movie. Do you want to do a cameo?’ It’s kind of funny — I’ve become known as a cameo specialist.”

Some fans have theorised that Stan Lee is in fact playing popular Marvel Comics character The Watcher, »

Andy Serkis talks Uylsses Klaw role in Avengers: Age of Ultron and whether he’ll return for Black Panther

8 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Attending the Jameson Empire Awards on Sunday night, where he was honoured with Best Actor for his role as Caesar in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Andy Serkis spoke briefly about his upcoming role as the villainous Uylsses Klaw in Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron:

“I think I can absolutely confirm it’s Ulysses Klaw now because I think the news is out,” said Serkis. “I sort of noticed that people [on the red carpet] sort of knew that I was Ulysses Klaw, so I thought ‘It must be out then.’ It was [a] really minimal [part], but I just loved doing it; it’s a great character.”

Asked whether he’ll be reprising the role for a future Marvel Cinematic Universe movie, Serkis replied: “That I know nothing about. I truly don’t know anything about that. I know that they’ve just announced the Black Panther movie, but I don’t know anything about it. »

New Trailer For Star Wars: The Force Awakens To Run With Avengers 2

30 March 2015 7:59 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The teaser for Star Wars: The Force Awakens pretty much brought the internet to a stop back in November. According to Collider, the trailer proper will be doing something very similar at, or possibly before, the time it lands on May 1 attached to Avengers: Age Of Ultron in Us cinemas. Expect the Lego version to land on May 2.Where this leaves the UK trailer break remains to be seen. The Star Wars Celebration, taking place between April 16-19, will see it debuted in Anaheim, and that could potentially lead to an official online launch soon after. Alternatively, we may not glimpse it until Age Of Ultron opens in UK cinemas on April 24. Clear? Excellent.In any case, Star Wars: The Force Awakens is directed by J.J. Abrams, from a script that he wrote with Lawrence Kasdan, and stars Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, »

'Black Panther': Will Andy Serkis Return as Ulysses Klaw?

30 March 2015 4:49 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in February, it was finally confirmed that Andy Serkis' mystery role in Avengers: Age of Ultron is in fact the Marvel comic book character Ulysses Klaw, after he briefly appeared in the first two trailers. It was never known how large a role the actor has in this Phase Two sequel, but he revealed at the Empire Awards that he only has a cameo appearance. Here's what he had to say, adding that Joss Whedon is a lot of fun to work with.

"It was really minimal. It's a tiny role, a little cameo role. But I just loved doing it and it's a great character. Joss is just great fun to work with."

Ulysses Klaw's appearance in the second trailer was just one of several hints that Avengers: Age of Ultron could be setting up their upcoming Black Panther movie, which is slated for release on July 6, 2018. In the comic books, »

Will Andy Serkis Be Back For Multiple Marvel Movies?

30 March 2015 2:55 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Andy Serkis has what could wind up becoming a incredibly important role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Though his part was kept under wraps for months, it has been confirmed that he will be playing Ulysses Klaw in The Avengers: Age of Ultron, and given character's the comic book history, that positions him to become a key villain in Marvel Studios' upcoming Black Panther film. But will that actually happen? Serkis himself recently addressed this question, and it seems that the future is very much uncertain. Empire Magazine caught up with the Dawn of the Planet of the Apes star while the actor was attending the 2015 Jameson Empire Awards, and while on camera the actor not only admitted his long-mysterious part as Ulysses Klaw in The Avengers: Age of Ultron, but also addressed whether or not we can expect him to play a larger role in upcoming Marvel movies. »

30 March 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Although we've known since the very first Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer that Andy Serkis will be playing the villain Ulysses Klaw, it was not confirmed until early last month. So, during last night's Empire Awards where Serkis won the Best Actor honor, the Apes star was finally able to discuss his minor role in the highly-anticipated Marvel sequel. "Well, I think I can absolutely confirm it's Ulysses Klaw now because I think the news is out," Serkis told Empire Magazine last night. "I sort of noticed that people [on the red carpets] sort of knew that I was Ulysses Klaw, so I thought 'It must be out then.'" He then clarified that he has a "tiny" part in Age of Ultron and it did not require weeks of filming. "It was really minimal, but I just loved doing it; it's a great character," he said.

29 March 2015 11:33 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During a lengthy piece over at Buzzfeed, Joss Whedon and Kevin Feige have been speaking about introducing the Maximoff twins Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch into the world of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with the upcoming sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron, during which the director and producer commented on 20th Century Fox’s decision to include the silver-haired speedster in last year’s X-Men: Days of Future Past.

“It’s a unique scenario,” said Feige. “That’s the only character where that could happen, and it happened. We knew it would be very different based on the various interpretations of the character through the comic. It may as well be different characters.”

“Months after I started [on Age of Ultron], they were like, [Days of Future Past] just changed Juggernaut to Quicksilver. I’m like, ‘What?!’,” added Whedon. “There’s going to be an entire season of The Flash that’s gone on before my movie too, and what »

Robert Downey Jr. talks Avengers: Age of Ultron and Tony Stark’s relationship with Steve Rogers

27 March 2015 4:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Avengers: Age of Ultron less than a month away from its UK release, we should expect to hear plenty of comments from the cast of the hotly-anticipated Marvel sequel as its arrival edges ever closer. Times of India has been speaking to Robert Downey Jr. about the film, during with he offered up a few words on Tony Stark’s character leading into the sequel.

“With the first film, The Avengers, Tony was becoming a team player and with Iron Man 3, it was him transcending his dependency on the tech that’s keeping him alive. So I thought, ‘Ok, now what?’ But there’s all this unfinished business. There’s the matter of a certain wormhole that opened over New York and the imminent threat that still implies, so Tony has turned his attentions more toward a bit of a post-Reagan-era, Star-Wars-type notion and he likes to call it Ultron. »
