Rumour: Shape-shifting Spider-Man could make future reboots easier

1 hour ago | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

According to The Daily Bugle, Marvel may be considering giving Spider-Man additional shape-shifting powers, so that when it's time for the next reboot, the actor can simply be recast, and a different take on the character pursued, without the other characters around him batting an eyelid.

(The idea of nano-masks (as seen in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Marvel's Agents of Shield) was mooted, but seeing as Spider-Man already wears a mask, it was understood that the concept of masks within masks would require Christopher Nolan to direct, and he's not available.)

The BBC television show Doctor Who has followed a similar approach, with great success.

This obviously would have the added advantage of allowing many fan-favourite actors, such as Donald Glover and Nathan Fillion, the chance to play the character. Or Dollhouse's versatile Enver Gjokaj could just play them all.

An unnamed source said, “Obviously, the Spider-Man »

Julie Delpy and Linda Cardellini are in Avengers: Age of Ultron – Captain Marvel rumours true?

1 hour ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Just when you thought the cast of Avengers: Age of Ultron couldn’t get any bigger, two more names have been revealed.

The tip sheet for the world premiere of the movie has been sent out to the Us press and has revealed that Julie Delpy (Before Midnight) and Linda Cardellini (Freaks and Geeks) are a part of the Avengers: Age of Ultron cast. They are at the end of the list so it’s likely they’re not large roles, but they’re important enough to mentioned.

Now, this could just be some speculation (this is the Internet after all), but this does tie into a report that we had earlier this month which suggested Marvel Studios had already cast its Captain Marvel and she would appear in Avengers: Age of Ultron. There was no word on who would play the character (or if it had even really been »

We saw some new footage from Avengers: Age of Ultron earlier today thanks to an Audi commercial that you can see here, and now we have a few more glimpses courtesy of an international TV spot for the hotly-anticipated superhero sequel, entitled ‘La Fiesta’. Take a look below after the official synopsis…

Marvel Studios presents Avengers: Age of Ultron, the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time. 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 ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure. »

The Avengers Are “Agile, Precise, Innovative And Quick” In New Ad

12 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Disney

If we are to believe this new commercial for Audi cars, these vehicles share many of their characteristics with members of The Avengers. No, it’s not that Audi are now making flying cars which turn green when you get angry, it’s all a little more elliptical than that.

It’s interesting that they’re including Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver as part of the aspirational group with desirable characteristics. I’d forgotten that these guys were couched as new members of The Avengers after seeing months of footage and se photos showing them on the other side.

I guess they’re going to turn, then. Which makes me question my assumptions about The Hulk in this movie.

I don’t know. Maybe everybody does loyalty flip flops back and forth all over the place. This being a Joss Whedon film, the only guess I’m really prepared to »

Avengers: Age Of Ultron & Ant-Man - more new footage

15 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

A new advert for a car boasts added footage from Marvel's Avengers: Age Of Ultron and Ant-Man movies...

Never let it be said that Earth's mightiest heroes bow to no sponsor. Ahem. New footage for Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age Of Ultron has surfaced in a promo ad for Audi's brum brums. I think the plan is that we're supposed to equate the qualities of assorted superheroes with a car.

As such, it's best you know what you're getting here. Not only do you get a movie commercial, you get a car commercial for your money too. And: as an added bonus, there's a bit of Ant-Man material waiting for you at the end of the clip too.

Here's the new promo. Don't say we didn't warn you...

Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice trailer news

16 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Don't expect the Batman V Superman trailer whilst Avengers: Age Of Ultron is burning up the box office...

Zack Snyder's Man Of Steel follow-up, Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, is scheduled for release in March 2016. Which makes it slightly surprising that - outside of the hall of San Diego Comic-Con - no footage from the film has yet been (officially) released. After all, it's pretty much the law with most blockbusters now that the first trailer lands a good year ahead of the movie's release.

Well, it looks as if the wait for the first Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice trailer will continue just a little longer. Collider is reporting that Warner Bros will definitely be playing it before Mad Max: Fury Road, which is due for release on May 15th. The reason for waiting until then, given that the trailer is apparently locked? "What I've heard »

31 March 2015 1:56 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

IMAX will be giving away a free poster at early screenings of Avengers: Age of Ultron, but the question is, which poster will early ticket buyers be receivingc For the new Avengers movie they are leaving that decision up to Twitter as the four you see below are in the running and the winning poster, based on hashtag retweets, will be handed out. You have a choice between a couple of minimalistic posters, a floating head poster and my personal favorite, the infected grey scale logo version with elements from the film worked into the image. If I didn't vote for that one I guess I'd go with the black-and-white, Punisher-style minimal poster, but who are we kiddingc I'm not voting in this, but if you are click here and get in on the action.

Stan Lee teases his Avengers: Age of Ultron cameo

31 March 2015 1:47 PM, PDT | 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, »
