Joss Whedon Thought About Directing A Female Batman Movie Post-avengers

1 hour ago | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Before Joss Whedon agreed to helm Avengers: Age of Ultron, Whedon thought about trying to get a DC superhero film off the ground again with Warner Bros. (see Joss Whedon's failed Wonder Woman film).  Said Whedon, "I will say that when I was thinking about, Well, if I wasn't’t going to do Avengers 2, what would I want to do? — of course the first thing I thought of was ‘turn-of-the-century female Batman.’ Not Batman actually. But, you know, something cool. One person. Can’t stress that enough. Movie about one person — not a team, not 10, just one. But [I would] do a nice sort of hard action movie that combined all my favorite things.  Something that would be the love child of Sam Fuller and Edward Gorey. You know, I’ve had many thoughts since then. Oh, I could do this! Oh, I could do that! But it is my »

Joss Whedon Doubtful He Will Direct Avengers: Infinity War

4 hours ago | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

In case you were still wondering if there was a chance that we could see Joss Whedon come back to direct the Avengers: Infinity War films, don’t hold your breath. We’ve already heard several reports that Joe and Anthony Russo (Captain America: Civil War) will continue their Marvel cinematic journey to bring those two films to life. Now in an interview with Empire (vis: Cbm), Whedon confirms that he will not be coming back. Avengers: Age of Ultron will be his last Marvel film… for now. Here’s what he had to say:

“I couldn't imagine doing this again. It's enormously hard, and it'd be, by then, a good five years since I created anything that was completely my own. So it's very doubtful that I would take on the two-part Infinity War movie that would eat up the next four years of my life.”

New Revealing Avengers: Age Of Ultron Details On Character Relationships And Much More

4 hours ago | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The folks at Digital Spy have just published 25 new and intriguing Avengers: Age of Ultron details that they learned while visiting the set last year; from character motives, relationships and so much more. First up, Joss Whedon teases doing a lot more with Hawkeye this time around. "We got to do some interesting stuff with Hawkeye which is a different kind of dark," he said. "It's been fun for Jeremy because he was possessed for so long last time – it's interesting to not be a zombie!" Producer Jeremy Latcham then reassured that Earth's Mightiest Heroes will already be a team when the movie begins. "This movie starts off and the team is together, on a mission, they're working in tandem, and there are new relationships between them," said Latcham. "Time has passed, so you pick up right in the middle of an action sequence and start trying to catch »

25 things we learned on the set of Avengers: Age of Ultron

9 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Marvel withdrawal is making the short, dark winter days just that bit more grim – it's now been six months since Guardians of the Galaxy arrived to brighten up our summers, and three months feels like a long time still to wait for The Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Digital Spy visited the set of Joss Whedon's sequel last summer, and spoke to the man himself along with Mark 'Hulk' Ruffalo, Chris 'Thor' Hemsworth, and new recruits Aaron 'Quicksilver' Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth 'Scarlet Witch' Olsen.

Below are 25 of the key things we learned from our day on set.

1. The Science Bros are causing trouble. "Banner's been living in Stark Tower, and [he and Tony] have been working side by side," Mark Ruffalo shares. "Banner has his own lab now, he's doing work that augments Tony's work, that could lead to a horrible experiment going wrong…"

2. Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye will have a »

The Definitive Movies of 1995

14 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

10. Waterworld

Directed by: Kevin Reynolds

It could be the flop of all flops. At the time, “Waterworld” was the most expensive film ever made. Starring Kevin Costner, “Waterworld” is a science-fiction/fantasy film taking place roughly 500 years after the polar ice caps melted in the beginning of the 21st century, effectively covering the entire world with water. Dirt has become a commodity and an unknown traveler named “the Mariner” (Costner) is trying to find anywhere to trade his stash. The catch: he’s a mutant, with gills, allowing him to breathe underwater. He is joined by a woman named Helen (Jeannie Tripplehorn) and child named Enola (Tina Majorino) with an elaborate map tattooed on her back. They sail the world and encounter various groups of survivors. They are pursued by a group of evil forces, led by an eye-patched man called “the Deacon” (Dennis Hopper). The special effects are actually pretty impressive, »

Jeremy Renner On Avoiding Avengers: Age Of Ultron Spoilers When You're In The Movie

17 hours ago | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

How do you avoid spoilers for Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age of Ultron? Jeremy Renner's solution is simple but not easy to accomplish. Even though Renner was on set, filming alongside Paul Bettany and his other fellow Avengers, Renner says he's doing his best to avoid spoilers so that he can enjoy a few surprises when he sees Age of Ultron for the first time.  Speaking to THR as executive producer of The Throwaways, Renner says he's trying to stay in the dark when it comes to learning any specifics about Paul Bettany's Vision in particular.  "I haven't seen [the Vision].  I kind of keep my head turned away from all of that so I can be surprised when I see the movie. Obviously I saw Paul Bettany in person as the character, but then they do the visual effects and all that sort of stuff. It will be a »

Get a New Look at Avengers: Age of Ultron in the Movie's First TV Spot

17 hours ago | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

There's a brand-new TV spot for Avengers: Age of Ultron! It aired during Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. this week, and now you can watch it below. Thanks to previous trailers, we fully accept new villain Ultron (voiced by James Spader) as pretty terrifying. He wants to destroy the Avengers and eventually, like everything. If you take a look at the full trailer below, you'll see some of the more interesting scenes come when Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) have a moment - a relationship that Ruffalo alluded to in our interview - and beyond that, well, there's just way more Hulk (which Joss Whedon has mentioned). Of course, the real must-see scene here is the epic battle between the Hulk and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), who's in some kind of mega Iron Man suit. Start geeking out now! Watch also for other characters Thor (Chris Hemsworth »

Anthony Mackie says Captain America: Civil War “is gonna be so much better” than Avengers: Age of Ultron

20 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It seems there’s not a week goes by without Anthony Mackie taking the opportunity to big up the Phase Three-launching Marvel threequel Captain America: Civil War, and the Captain America: The Winter Soldier star has been at it again this week, telling Wzyz-tv Detroit that the 2016 release “is gonna be so much better than” Joss Whedon’s Avengers: Age of Ultron.

“The way I look at it, Captain America [The Winter Soldier] was a spin-off of Avengers, but it was so much better than Avengers. With the new Avengers [Age of Ultron] coming out, the trailer that came out, it’s gonna be 10 times better than Avengers. So, [Captain America: Civil War] is gonna be so much better than Avengers 2. It can’t be Avengers 2.5, it’s like Avengers 3.8. It’s so far past where Avengers is gonna be this summer. Just having read [Civil War script], and seen the specs of what they’re gonna do, it’s unlike anything you’ve ever seen. »

Joss Whedon would “never rule out” directing Captain Marvel

30 January 2015 9:24 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Joss Whedon has always been known for writing and directing movies that feature female characters in lead roles – which would seem to make him the ideal man to take on the upcoming Captain Marvel. But would he do it?

“Um, I would never rule anything out, because I like working here”, he told Buzzfeed. “[But] by the same token, the biggest thing for me is that I need to do something that I create myself. It’s been way too long since I created a universe.”

“Captain Marvel, I don’t know as well,” Whedon confessed. “There have been a few [versions] of her. I have the first issue of Ms. Marvel, back when she was that, and had the Farrah hair. My only issue with her is that she always felt sort of on top. She was very driven. A winner. I always like to dig into the soil of things to find my heroes, »

Joss Whedon Says 'Lucy' Is "A Huge Step" In Advancing Female-Driven Blockbusters

30 January 2015 8:49 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Earlier this week, quotes by Joss Whedon about what he perceives to be the "intractable sexism" in the comic book movie industry made the rounds, but here's the thing — those quotes were from last summer from the set of "Avengers: Age of Ultron," and because they were under embargo, only started to surface now. And seeing his words months later, a bit surprised they've taken on the life that they have given his longstanding outspokenness regarding the representation of women in genre fare, Whedon has felt the need to correct the record a bit and share a few more thoughts on the issue.  Chatting with Buzzfeed, Whedon admits that at the time he made those aforementioned comments, he actually knew a "Captain Marvel" movie was in the works, but was still pessimistic about its prospects. "[I didn't expect] it to get any traction, honestly. That’s something that [Marvel Studios chief] Kevin [Feige] has been working on for a while. »

Joss Whedon clarifies his “sexism” comments about Marvel

30 January 2015 8:26 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last year, Digital Spy interviewed director Joss Whedon on the set of Avengers: Age of Ultron about his thoughts on the Marvel Cinematic Universe and its lack of diversity. In the interview, Whedon said that it was “sexism” and “quiet misogyny” that was holding Marvel back from pulling the trigger on female-led superhero movies in particular. The interview was posted in full earlier this week.

In the months since his comments were initially made, Marvel have announced Captain Marvel and Black Panther for Phase Three, which has promoted Whedon to clarify his Digital Spy comments.

“I just thought, I sounded very harsh,” Whedon told Buzzfeed. “And then [Marvel announced], ‘We’re going to make Captain Marvel. We’re going to make Black Panther. We’re going to shake it up.’ I was just like, great! Now I just sound mean and bitter. But, you know, there’s a lot to be mean and bitter about. »

Will Joss Whedon Direct 'Captain Marvel?'

30 January 2015 7:36 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier in the week, a lot of attention was aimed at Joss Whedon for comments he made from the set of Avengers: Age of Ultron, calling Hollywood out on it's 'intractable sexism' and 'old-fashioned quiet misogyny'. He was rallying against a lack of female driven superhero movies in the market place, but his rant came before Marvel and DC announced Captain Marvel and Wonder Woman. With some time passed since he first spoke out on the subject, he now offers his latest thoughts. But first, he tackles the question: Will he direct Captain Marvel?

"Um, I would never rule anything out, because I like working here. By the same token, the biggest thing for me is that I need to do something that I create myself. It's been way too long since I created a universe. Captain Marvel I don't know as well. There have been a few [versions] of her. »

Could Joss Whedon Direct Captain Marvel? Here's What He Said

30 January 2015 6:57 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It.s looking like Joss Whedon won.t be directing the two-part Avengers: Infinity War after Age of Ultron. The man.s exhausted from all the years spent honing his shared cinematic universe, but he did say that he wants to stick around at Marvel in some capacity. The question is, if not the Avengers movies, than what? Is the upcoming Captain Marvel on the docket? Whedon has made a career out of bringing a powerful female hero to the (small) screen, so might he do it again with the McU.s first female-centric solo superhero movie? BuzzFeed caught up with the director on the phone, after some comments he made months ago about the lack of female-driven blockbusters went public. Upon broaching the question of will he or won.t he direct the Captain Marvel movie, the master of the vague responses said: Um, I would never rule anything »
