You may remember during last year's "Marvel Event" that a scene was shown featuring Steve Rogers and Tony Stark sharing a fairly tense exchange, something which later seemed like an obvious Captain America: Civil War prelude. In a lengthy interview with Collider, co-writer Stephen McFeely revealed whether or not it was an intentional set up of what's to come in the Marvel Cinematic Universe! "I’m glad they put that in there, but I don’t even know the relationship between when we decided to Civil War and when that scene was put in, so it could just be good tension,a good scene, but it’s a clean set up. It’s a good intro." You have to imagine that Joss Whedon had some sort of inkling of plans for Civil War, but it's more obvious now than ever before that Avengers: Age of Ultron will be serving as »
In Joss Whedon.s The Avengers: Age of Ultron, we can surely expect to see characters like Iron Man, Thor, Hulk and Captain America getting into fisticuffs with various henchmen and bad guys, but action sequences will be a very different deal when Elizabeth Olsen.s Scarlet Witch is involved. After all, she is more of a spell-caster than a punch-thrower. What.s interesting about that separation, though, was how it impacted the approach to the character in the film, and as such, Olsen was told to see the character as more of a dancer than a fighter. This interesting bit of background was recently provide by Elizabeth Olsen during an interview with Empire Magazine, where she went in depth about playing one the Marvel Cinematic Universe.s newest characters in The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Discussing the way she went about moving in the skin of Scarlet Witch, the »
As much as I haven't necessarily enjoyed Marvel's movies as of late and the same goes for a relatively lackluster appeal to Zack Snyder's latest output of films, I have to admit to watching this mashup, giving Joss Whedon's The Avengers the Snyder visual touch, and actually thinking it works quite well. Then again, I'm not convinced it's all about the music. In the end, the Smashing Pumpkins' "The End Is the Beginning Is the End" is what made that Watchmen trailer as it is still an immensely watchable trailer even today, long after the bad taste of the film has left us. Check out the mash-up below. via The Playlist yt id="DYYlYnT1CZg" width="500" »

The recent issue of Empire Magazine provides some interesting details regarding a pre-credit battle scene with the Avengers in Avengers: Age of Ultron. I'll just throw out a Spoiler Warning now for anyone not looking to learn anything else about this movie. But you clicked on the article, so you obviously are here to keep reading.
According to the report, the superhero team pays a little visit to Hydra operative Baron von Strucker, who is played by Thomas Kretschmann. He is hiding out in an East European castle and he has Loki's scepter in his possession. When talking about the sequence, director Joss Whedon described it as being a "pre-credits Bondian blow-out."
Some big things happen there, and when it's over the superhero team is flying back to New York City in Tony Stark's quinjet, and everyone seems to be very distraught. Here's a description of what is happening in this scene, »

Joss Whedon is currently getting ready for the May 1st release of "Avengers: Age of Ultron," but there are already rumors that he may not return to direct the next two parts of "Avengers: Infinity War." Instead, all signs have been pointing to the Russo Brothers taking over, especially after the success of "Captain America: The Winter Soldier." While we have yet to get any confirmations of this, Whedon himself is now strongly hinting that he's done with directing "Avengers" movies. "I couldn't imagine doing this again," he revealed. "It's enormously hard, and it [will] be, by [the time I would make 'Avengers 3 and 4'], 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. I obviously still want to be a part of the Marvel Universe . I love these guys . but it ain't easy. »
Joss Whedon has admitted that it is "very doubtful" that he will direct Avengers: Infinity War.
The filmmaker told Empire that he is unlikely to return to the Marvel franchise for a while after this year's Avengers: Age of Ultron, as he is looking to focus on his own projects.
"I couldn't imagine doing this again," he said. "It's enormously hard, and it 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."
He added: "I obviously still want to be a part of the Marvel Universe - I love these guys - but it ain't easy. This year has been more like running three shows than any year of my life. It is bonkers."

Marvel already has plans for Avengers: Infinity War Part I in May 2018, and Infinity War Part II in May 2019. The rumour for a while has been that those two films will be directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, who are about to helm Captain America: Civil War (having scored a sizeable success with Captain America: The Winter Soldier). And, chatting to Empire magazine, Whedon seems to indicate that he will indeed be moving on.
"I couldn't imagine doing this again", he said. "It's enormously hard and it'd be, by then, a good five years since I »
Every big franchise director has that moment where, after a movie seems like it cannot possibly be topped but everyone knows the franchise is going to keep going, they say they're not going to direct the next movie. Michael Bay is perhaps the worst at this. He's played a "Nah, not doing another Transformers" for three sequels now, even though he inevitably comes back each time. Well, now Joss Whedon has confirmed speculation that he is not going to direct Avengers: Infinity War, which will be broken up into two parts. But don't take this as him playing the "Will I? Won't I?" game in the press; his reasoning here is actually very understandable. From Empire Magazine, via ComicBookMovie: "I couldn't imagine doing this...

We heard from Aaron Taylor-Johnson earlier today about his role as Quicksilver in Avengers: Age of Ultron, and now the actress who plays his twin sister has shared some new details about the highly anticipated sequel. Talking to Empire Magazine, Elizabeth Olsen revealed her and Joss Whedon's unique approach to playing the Scarlet Witch. "The coolest thing about Scarlet Witch is, because you've never seen her, we got to create how she moves. Joss was really inspired by dancers, and so he knew that he wanted to change visually how she moves, to be more like a dancer than a fighter. I didn't really have to do much stunt training. Instead I trained with a dancer, Jenny White, which was its own kid of soreness, but it wasn't what I thought it would be." A lot of fans have been surprisingly critical about the inclusion of "The Twins", claiming »
We’ve already brought you the two Empire covers for Avengers: Age of Ultron, some images and a few notes from Joss Whedon talking about not directing Avengers: Infinity War and threatening to kill all of the Avengers. And now we bring you some notes from an interview with Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who will be playing Quicksilver in the movie.
“He’s very agitated because everything runs too slowly for him,” he tells Empire via Cbm. “He’s quick at everything. He’s quick to lose his temper.”
“It’s more about Pietro and Wanda together, a yin/yang where he’s very physical and very protective of her and she’s very internal and always mothering him,” he says on his relationship with Scarlet Witch, played by fellow Godzilla star Elizabeth Olsen. “Pietro doesn’t fricking trust anybody. The only one he cares for and at the end of the »

Late last year, a rumor went around that the Russo Brothers, the team behind the last and next Captain America movies, were being eyed to direct Avengers 3 and 4 (a.k.a. the Infinity War Part 1 and 2). Now that still hasn't been substantiated, but it did get at one lingering question about the franchise: Is Joss Whedon coming back? Well, now it appears that the answer is probably no. "I couldn't imagine doing this again," Whedon told Empire. He explained: "It's enormously hard, and it'd be, by [the time Avengers 3 and 4 were finished], 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. I obviously still want to be a part of the Marvel Universe — I love these »

The latest issue of Empire Magazine has already given us some new images from Avengers: Age of Ultron [see here and here], as well as comments from Joss Whedon suggesting he won’t be back in the director’s chair for Avengers: Infinity War [see here], and now we have some quotes from Robert Downey Jr. about the upcoming Phase Three ensemble Captain America: Civil War, which will see Iron Man squaring off against Steve Rogers:
“They said to me, ‘If we have you, we can do this, or Cap 3 has to be something else’,” said Downey with regards to how the project came around. “It’s nice to feel needed. And at this point it’s about helping each other, too. I look at it as a competition and I go, ‘Wow, maybe if these two franchises teamed up and I can take even a lesser position, with people I like and directors I respect, »

Earlier today, we showed you the Empire Magazine covers that feature the main cast members assembling from Avengers: Age of Ultron, the highly-anticipated Marvel Phase Two sequel that hits theaters May 1. The magazine also has a description of the sequel's opening scene, confirming a rumor from early last year that the movie will kick off with a Bond-like action sequence that finds the Avengers paying a visit to an Eastern European castle where Hydra's Baron Von Strucker (Thomas Kretschmann) has been hiding out with Loki's scepter. The sequence is described as a, "pre-credits Bondian blow-out," with the magazine also offering a detailed description of the scene that follows, where the heroes are en route to Avengers Tower for their victory celebration. This was teased in the previously-released trailers. Be warned there may be potential Spoilers below, so read on at your own risk.

If there is one thing that Joss Whedon is famous for, it’s killing off popular characters to get a reaction from his audience. Last time round it was Agent Coulson, but who will it be this time in Avengers: Age of Ultron?
Well, in an interview Empire, Whedon clearly has deadly plans for not just one member, but the whole team.
“I f*cking kill them. All of them. I do it. Marvel don’t even realise it. When they see the final cut, they’ll be like, ‘Omigod! What are we going to do for Phase 3? We literally have no one! Except Ant-Man!’ They’re going to be so pissed.”
Of course, Whedon is kidding. Right?

While it's still not official, the claim going around late last year that Joe and Anthony Russo were in talks to direct Avengers: Infinity War - Part 1 and Part 2 seems more and more likely. Recent comments made by The Avengers and Avengers: Age Of Ultron director Joss Whedon all but confirmed that he won’t be continuing to helm the franchise. Here is what Whedon told Empire Magazine about his future in the Marvel Cinematic Universe: I couldn’t imagine doing »

Joss Whedon is currently working very hard on giving audiences a worthy follow-up to one of the biggest films of all time, The Avengers. Avengers: Age of Ultron is a few short months away and the new issue of Empire Magazine had a bunch of new images about that film. They also asked Whedon about […]

It was first reported on very early last year, but the latest issue of Empire magazine confirms that the very beginning of Avengers: Age of Ultron will see the team assemble and pay a surprise visit to the villainous Hydra operative Baron von Strucker (played by Thomas Kretschmann), who is hiding out in an East European castle and holding Loki's scepter. Speaking about the sequence, director Joss Whedon describes it as a "pre-credits Bondian blow-out." The magazine goes on to describe the aftermath of that sequence as it was being filmed, when the team is flying in Tony Stark's new quinjet, which is said to be more spacious than the S.H.I.E.L.D.models, en route to the Avengers Tower in NYC. The full description can be read below as it contains dialogue and potential spoilers. As Stark is flying the ship, [Robert] Downey Jr. goes and sits in the pilot's seat. »
Joss Whedon took fan excitement from the likes of Iron Man, Thor and Captain America and turned it into something huge with The Avengers and I'm sure Avengers: Age of Ultron will be just another step in the right financial direction for the Marvel franchise of superhero films. But it seems two movies have taken a lot out of Joss as he tells Empire magazine in their latest cover story... I couldn't imagine doing this again. It's enormously hard, and it will be, by the time I would make Avengers 3 and 4, 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. I obviously still want to be a part of the Marvel Universe - I love these guys - but it ain't easy. »

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 »

Back in October, a report surfaced that Captain America: The Winter Soldier directors Joe Russo and Anthony Russo will likely take over for Joss Whedon as the directors of The Avengers 3 and The Avengers 4. This was two weeks prior to Marvel announcing that Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and Part 2 will hit theaters in 2018 and 2019. At that time, the studio never confirmed a director for either sequel. Today, Joss Whedon himself revealed to Empire that he will most likely not be at the helm for this epic undertaking.
"I couldn't imagine doing this again. It's enormously hard, and it [will] 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. I obviously still want to be a part of the Marvel »
