Are 'Hercules' And 'Speedball' Coming To Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.?

13 hours ago | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Actor and frequent Joss Whedon collaborator Fran Kranz (Cabin In The Woods, Much Ado About Nothing) recently tweeted (and then deleted) and interesting list of names.  Luckily, the guys over at OhNoTheyDidnt were able to screencap the tweet.  Needless to say, it's Very intriuging. Robbie Baldwin became known as Speedball after his body was bombarded with interdimentional energy during a freak accident.  Gifted with an exterior shell of kinetic energy, Speedball eventually becomes a member of the New Warriors, a team of young heroes including Night Thrasher, Namorita, Nova, Marvel Boy and Firestar.  The team would later be involved in a reality show gone wrong which results in the destruction of a small neighborhood and leads into Marvel's Civil War.  In a fit of guilt for surviving the incident, Baldwin ditches the Speedball moniker and takes up the name Penance as a member of Norman Osborne's Thunderbolts In other speculatory news, »

Jeremy Renner on Captain America 3 & Avengers: Age Of Ultron

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

Jeremy Renner on Hawkeye in Captain America 3, and how he and Hulk get more time in Avengers: Age Of Ultron...

Jeremy Renner set the internet gossip machine off the other week, when he dropped into conversation that the character of Hawkeye was potentially making an appearance in Captain America 3. Renner, who is returning to play the role in Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age Of Ultron, has given a new interview to the Daily Beast that throws just a little bit of doubt on it, as he confirms at the moment that it's just a rumour.

"I don't know what's going to happen. I know it's going to start shooting in March", he said of Captain America 3. "I haven't had any official conversations about doing it or not". Note that doesn't rule out unofficial conversations, of course. So maybe he's not throwing too much doubt.

Anyway, Renner also turned his attention to The Avengers 2, »

Is Marvel Planning a 'Hawkeye' and 'Black Widow' Team-Up Movie?

29 September 2014 4:42 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

As Jeremy Renner continues to make the press rounds for his upcoming thriller Kill the Messenger, the actor cleared the air about a certain Captain America 3 rumor and teased new details about Avengers: Age of Ultron. And, despite claiming that he wasn't really interested in a Hawkeye solo movie last week, Renner does confirmed that he is signed on for one should Marvel deem it necessary. He then teases a possible Hawkeye/Black Widow team-up movie.

Most actors who take on a major role in any Marvel movie sign multi-picture deals that will span several years. When asked about his own Marvel contract, Jeremy Renner says the deal includes Marvel's The Avengers, next year's Avengers: Age of Ultron and The Avengers 3, along with a possible Hawkeye spin-off movie:

"I think most actors will sign on to do, like... Captain America 1-3 and then The Avengers 1-3, and then you're done. »

Jeremy Renner talks Avengers: Age of Ultron and Captain America 3

29 September 2014 2:57 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having been absent from Marvel’s slate of Phase Two movies, Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye is set to return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in May alongside the rest of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in Avengers: Age of Ultron, and the actor has taken a moment to discuss his role in the hotly-anticipated sequel during an interview with Starplus (via Cbm).

“It was fun to finally kind of discover who Clint Barton is a little bit. We have some good secrets revealed. I think everything that was great about the first Avengers, is exponentially expressed in this one. From the action, to the making fun of itself, and there’s a lot more time spent with the Avengers together, after being so separated in the first one. We’ve got some great new goodies, and some good baddies.”

There’s also been talk that Hawkeye could reunite with Chris Evans »

Avengers: Age Of Ultron Trailer Likely Attached to Interstellar

29 September 2014 10:20 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

As if you needed another reason to head to theaters to see Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, we have reports that the first Avengers: Age of Ultron teaser trailer will play ahead of it in theaters. If you are Russian, you will definitely get to see the Avengers teaser, as Warner Bros. Russia has announced that it will be attached to the space odyssey in that country. It makes sense for that to be true here in the States as well, given that Interstellar’s November 7 (U.S.) release date puts it almost exactly six months ahead of Age of Ultron’s May 1, 2015 (also U.S.) release date. That’s about when the Marvel PR machine starts rolling things out. They also usually put their trailers online a few days before theatrical release, so come back at the end of October/beginning of November to watch it here.

Will The Avengers 3 Be Split Into 2 Movies? Yes, Please.

29 September 2014 9:42 AM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

…as long as Joss Whedon is writing and directing this thing, they can turn the third “Avengers” movie into 20 parts for all I care. So, the latest chatter around the Marvel water cooler hails from The Daily Marvelite, and has Marvel making the decision to split up Joss Whedon’s third “Avengers” movie into two films in order to properly combat the menace that is Thanos, who was introduced in the first “Avengers” movie, then furthered in “Guardians of the Galaxy,” and is expected to have a major hand (if not major appearance) in the events of “Avengers: Age of Ultron.” So it makes sense that the final battle against Thanos with the fate of the universe at stake would take two movies and officially adapting the epic “Infinity Gauntlet” mega-crossover storyline from the comic books. Writes the site: Remember when Marvel announced a mysterious movie for May 3rd 2019? Well, »

"Avengers: Age Of Ultron": 'Scarlet Witch' and 'Hawkeye'

29 September 2014 5:56 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Take another look @ set footage from the March 2014 Italian location shoot of director Joss Whedon's "Avengers: Age Of Ultron", showcasing 'Scarlet Witch' and 'Hawkeye':

"...with 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' destroyed and the 'Avengers' needing a break from stopping threats, 'Tony Stark' creates 'Ultron', a self-aware, self-teaching, artificial intelligence, who can assess threats and control Stark's 'Iron Legion'. 

"However, things quickly go awry when Ultron decides that humans are the main enemy and sets out to eradicate them from Earth..."

The Scarlet Witch and her brother 'Quicksilver' were part of the 'second generation' of Marvel's "The Avengers" comic book team, recruited by 'Iron Man', under the leadership of 'Captain America'.

Created by writer Stan Lee and co-plotter/illustrator Jack Kirby, the Scarlet Witch debuted in Marvel Comics' "X-Men" #4 (March 1964).

She is the daughter of 'Magneto', twin sister of Quicksilver and paternal half-sister of 'Polaris'. »

First Avengers: Age Of Ultron trailer set to land next month

28 September 2014 10:38 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The covers may just be coming off Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age Of Ultron, as reports suggest the first trailer is weeks away...

It's become something of a tradition now to get trailers for the follow summer's big films in November and December. And it looks as if the promo for one of the biggest is going to shoot out of the traps first.

If reports are to be believed, Joss Whedon is putting together the first trailer for Avengers: Age Of Ultron, which is set to play alongside Christopher Nolan's upcoming Interstellar. Given that Interstellar is released on November 7th, that would put The Avengers 2 trailer just over a month away.

The news broke courtesy of a presentation given by Warner Bros in Russia, that was reported at Film Pro. Obviously, it's not been confirmed, nor would we expect it to be. But it does make sense. »

Renner Talks 'Avengers 2', 'M:i-5' & Says New 'Bourne' Could Follow Marvel Model

28 September 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I don't know about you all, but I hadn't really noticed until I wrote the headline above that Jeremy Renner has himself firmly entrenched in not one, not two, but three major franchises. I'd have thought one would be enough for most actors, but apparently, the more the better. Speaking of more (or in the case below, "bigger") being better, Renner had this to say about Avengers: Age of Ultron while making press rounds for his newest film Kill the Messenger (which is by all accounts decidedly not big): I think everything that worked in the first Avengers is exponentially going to be better in this one. I think the comedic relief, I think the action, is going to be bigger. But wait, there's more (and following the logic above, that makes it better). When it comes to Mission: Impossible 5, which Renner is shooting right now alongside Tom Cruise, »

Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer rumoured to be attached to Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar

28 September 2014 5:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Avengers: Age of Ultron set to bring the curtain down on Phase Two of the Marvel Cinematic Universe this coming May, it’s surely only a matter of time before Marvel Studios kicks off the marketing campaign for Joss Whedon’s hotly-anticipated sequel. And, if FilmPro is to be believed, we’ll be getting the first trailer for the film alongside the release of Christopher Nolan’s upcoming sci-fi epic Interstellar, which opens in theaters on November 7th.

The first teaser for 2012’s The Avengers was released in October on 2011, and with Marvel Studios set to have a presence at the New York Comic-Con in a fornight (which will include the unveiling of Marvel’s first Netflix series Daredevil), I personally wouldn’t be surprised if we see the first trailer for Age of Ultron some time in the next two or three weeks. But, we shouldn’t have »

10 Buffy & Angel Easter Eggs You Might Have Missed

28 September 2014 4:33 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

The WB

Easter eggs are little in jokes and references that only fans of a property will really recognize most of the time. A number of television shows feature them (Fringe has several, including a nod or two to The X-Files). Buffy and Angel, however, are just full of them.

That’s not surprising. Buffy and Angel’s writing team, and production company Mutant Enemy, were some of the most meticulous planners around, often plotting episodes (or at least plot points) years in advance. To put that in comparison, many shows are just write-as-you-go, down-to-the-wire productions with scripts coming in just weeks in advance of episodes shooting. And while Buffy had its share of last minute changes, the forethought of the writers was simply unparalleled in prime time television at the time (and for the most part, since).

A large part of that can be laid at the feet of »

'Avengers 2' Trailer to Debut with 'Interstellar'?

27 September 2014 3:52 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Will we see the first teaser trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron in late October or early November? That's what a new Russian website is claiming, as they confirm that the first footage from this highly-anticipated Marvel sequel will be attached to Interstellar, in theaters November 7th.

This, of course, has not been confirmed by Marvel or Disney. FilmPro Russian recently attended a Cinema Expo held in their country, where the information was revealed during a Warner Bros. exhibit. Translated, this is what they claim:

"For fans of comic book movies, there is another motive to go see Interstellar. The first trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron will be attached."

It has been speculated that Marvel and Disney are planning a marketing strategy for Avengers: Age of Ultron that is similar to the first Marvel's The Avengers. The full-length trailer for that blockbuster debuted in October of 2011, a year before the film's release. »

Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow 10 years on: A ground-breaking blockbuster

27 September 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

It's 1994, and aspiring filmmaker Kerry Conran sits down with his Macintosh IIci to begin work on a short film that's a throwback to the buccaneering adventure serials of the '30s and '40s. In those post-Jurassic Park days, computer-generated visual effects technology was still in its infancy, but Conran, a former CalArts student, saw the potential to tell a story he'd dreamed about. After four years of painstaking work with blue screen and his already-obsolete Mac, he fashioned a black and white teaser trailer for The World of Tomorrow.

Alongside Conran for the entirety of the journey was his brother Kevin Conran, who served as production and costume designer on both the short and eventual feature film. Speaking to Digital Spy from his home in California, Kevin recalled the lightbulb moment when his brother first pitched him the idea.

Jeremy Renner Updates on 'Avengers 2', 'Bourne 5' and 'Mission 5'

26 September 2014 12:40 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While doing press for his upcoming thriller Kill the Messenger, Jeremy Renner offered a few updates on his upcoming projects Avengers: Age of Ultron, Mission: Impossible 5 and the sequel to 2012's The Bourne Legacy in an interview with Access Hollywood.

When asked about Avengers: Age of Ultron, which recently wrapped production, Jeremy Renner hints that everything will be bigger in the sequel, without giving away any specific plot details.

"I think everything that worked in the first one is exponentially going to be better in this one. I think the comedic relief, I think the action, is going to be bigger. There is more time spent with all of the Avengers together as a unit on and off the clock, if you will, which is actually really fun. A lot of secrets are revealed and more secrets are posed."

You've Gotta Watch Samuel L. Jackson Singing Karaoke

26 September 2014 9:44 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

"Show Me Love" never sounded so good.

When Samuel L. Jackson sings karaoke, he sings karaoke.

Watch: 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' Cast Gets Wild at Comic-Con

The actor stole the spotlight on Thursday night at One For The Boys #SingOne4TheBoys charity event at Abbey Road Studios in London when he hit the stage with Robin S' 1993 hit "Show Me Love."

Watch and enjoy.

Watch: Samuel L. Jackson Recites 'Boy Meets World' Slam Poetry

But this isn't the first time Jackson has covered a hit song. Remember when he rocked Nicki Minaj's "Beez in the Trap" (in a pink wig)? Or when he sorta-sang Taylor Swift's "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together"? They were both amazing, and you can see them in the video above.

Jackson returns as Nick Fury when Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters in May. Now if only Joss Whedon would give Nick a microphone…
