5 Joss Whedon Films That Never Got Made

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

Matt Sayles/AP/Press Association Images

With exclusive images having been unveiled by Entertainment Weekly recently, and surely plenty of news to come from this years San Diego Comic-Con, fans are understandably getting excited about The Avengers: Age Of Ultron. Joss Whedon’s sequel to his own 2012 comic book blockbuster, it is the latest film to come from one of cinema’s most diverse talents.

Throughout the last decade alone he has brought a whole variety of fictional worlds to the screen; from sci-fi western Serenity, to Shakespeare adaptation Much Ado About Nothing, and game changing horror The Cabin In The Woods, he has also realised these visions as a writer, director, producer, and even composer. This is to say nothing of those which he worked on beforehand, such as Toy Story and Alien Resurrection, and the low budget indie In Your Eyes, which was made available to rent online earlier this year. »

'Avengers 2' Creates an Existential Crisis for Its Heroes

11 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

As production continues on Avengers: Age of Ultron, we still don't have too many confirmed story details regarding this highly-anticipated Marvel Phase Two sequel. Mark Ruffalo, who plays Bruce Banner and The Incredible Hulk, recently teased that Joss Whedon is at the top of his game, and that the Avengers are dealing with a lot of widespread hatred towards them after S.H.I.E.L.D. came crumbling down.

"Joss [Whedon] is in his full height of his powers. This movie is much more sprawling and epic than the first one. They're really in an existential, dire crisis. It has a darker quality. The Avengers are really struggling with their own shortcomings and the dissolution of S.H.I.E.L.D. and where they go and who they are in the world. There's a lot of negativity towards them."

The actor also teased that his character Bruce Banner is »

Hayley Atwell Says Agent Carter Is Back in 'Avengers 2'

14 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Hayley Atwell is ready to reprise her Peggy Carter role in the new ABC series Marvel's Agent Carter, but that's not the only place fans will be able to see her. She is also making an appearance in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

We last saw modern day Peggy in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, when Steve Rogers visited his former flame in an old folks' home. For Avengers: Age of Ultron, Joss Whedon wanted to write a scene specifically for the character.

Hayley Atwell explains,

"We went out drinking one night and he was like, 'You know, it would be great to write something for you,' And I was like , 'Yes, Joss, it would! It would be amazing!'"

It was not confirmed if she will be appearing in flashbacks that will tie into Marvel's Agent Carter, which debuts on ABC this winter, or if Steve will be making »

Will Joss Whedon Direct 'Avengers 3'?

15 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Badass Digest, who broke the supposed big Star Wars: Episode VII plot scoop yesterday, claims to have sources deep inside Disney, and this time they are reporting that Joss Whedon will most likely not return to direct The Avengers 3. They go onto claim that James Gunn is being groomed by Marvel to take over the franchise. Which makes sense if we're to believe that the Guardians of the Galaxy team will show up in this impending Marvel sequel.

Badass Digest points out that James Gunn is signed to do a second Marvel movie, though the title hasn't been revealed. They also point out that most Marvel directors never make it to two movies, Jon Favreau and Joss Whedon being the exception, and Jon Favreau will never return to this Cinematic Universe as a director, at least for the time being (of course that could change). It sounds like Joss Whedon »

Will Joss Whedon Direct ‘The Avengers 3′?

16 hours ago | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

It seems like just yesterday that the success of The Avengers had led Marvel to sign Joss Whedon to a three-year deal, tasking him with writing and directing The Avengers: Age of Ultron as well as overseeing the creative direction of Marvel’s universe alongside producer Kevin Feige. But time marches on, and with Age of Ultron approaching, the studio has yet to comment on Whedon’s involvement in their universe once his contract ends in 2015.

So with no insight coming from Whedon or Marvel (and all eyes focused on how Guardians of the Galaxy and Age of Ultron will blow open Marvel’s universe), will The Avengers 3 hand the reins over to another director?

Although Whedon is still ...

Will James Gunn Be Taking Over For Joss Whedon On The Avengers 3?

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

Could Joss Whedon be leaving The Avengers franchise after next year's Age of Ultron? At this point, it's only a rumor, but Badass Digest's Devin Faraci is reporting that there have been "rumblings behind-the-scenes." If it is true, however, who would Marvel Studios trust to take over its most profitable franchise? Well, in anticipation of Guardians of the Galaxy, Faraci spoke with director James Gunn and producer Kevin Feige this weekend, and got an interesting response from both  when he asked how far along were negotiations for the former filmmaker to direct The Avengers 3. I have seen James Gunn in social settings and in press settings, and at this moment I saw James Gunn in one way I had never before seen him: speechless. He kind of sat there gobsmacked for a second. And then he said, "It was great seeing you!" as our interview time was up. The next »

Kevin Feige and James Gunn Shoot Down Planet Hulk Rumors Once Again

23 hours ago | Comingsoon.net | See recent Comingsoon.net news »

Ever since a rumor over a year ago popped up that claimed Marvel Studios was considering a "Planet Hulk" film for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, many fans have become consumed with the notion of the film. Despite being debunked by Joss Whedon and The Hulk himself Mark Ruffalo, the rumor wouldn't die and even lead some to speculate a Guardians of the Galaxy sequel could see The Hulk team up with that group in a crossover film. Now, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige and Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn have come forward to say, once again, that it isn't happening. »

Feige Talks About Marvel's 'Hulk' Plans

21 July 2014 6:34 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Ever since The Avengers, there has been lots of buzz around The Incredible Hulk. Despite having two attempts at solo films- which both under-performed- it would appear that Joss Whedon's use of the character was what finally sparked the imagination of the masses. That, and Mark Ruffalo's strong portrayal of Bruce Banner. Since then, much has been made about what Marvel would like to do with the character's scene-stealing popularity. Our own El Mayimbe once exclusively reported on plans for a film based on the Planet Hulk books, and his claims were more or less verified when concept art for Thor: The Dark World was released that showed that- at one point- Marvel was toying with the idea. The art showed characters that first appeared in those books, like the Oldstrong and Kaifi.

But now, as has been said before, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige is confirming that »

To celebrate the release of the biography Joss Whedon: Geek King of the Universe by Amy Pascale – which is out on July 24th courtesy of Aurum Press – we have a copy of the book to give away to one lucky reader…

He continued to discuss how Johansson would not be put in any danger, while the action scenes themselves will not be altered.

Whedon added: "We're not avoiding any of the danger because the stuntwomen do the danger—as has always been the case".

Director James Gunn considering return for Guardians of the Galaxy 2

20 July 2014 1:12 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

If the early buzz is any indication, Marvel’s latest blockbuster, Guardians of the Galaxy, is going to be a huge hit. Given that the film is part of the larger and ever-expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe, we’ll definitely see the titular criminals-turned-heroes on the big screen again, especially if the recent Hulk/Guardians team-up rumors are true. In fact, the film may already have a release date, as it could easily be one of Marvel’s several “unannounced” projects landing in theaters between now and 2019.

Jon Favreau and Joss Whedon are the only directors to return for second franchise installments (though Captain America: The Winter Soldier directors Joe and Anthony Russo are coming back for Captain America 3), so there’s always the chance that if Guardians of the Galaxy 2 happens, director James Gunn may not return. When asked about it in a recent interview with Adam Corolla, Gunn »

Hiding Scarlett Johansson's Pregnancy in Avengers: Age of Ultron Took a Lot of Stunt Doubles

19 July 2014 3:15 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

In the new issue of Entertainment Weekly, Chris Evans and director Joss Whedon spoke about hiding Scarlett Johansson's pregnant belly on the set of "Avengers: Age of Ultron," confirming that Black Widow's action scenes have not been changed or toned down. "We're not avoiding any of the danger because the stuntwomen do the danger -- as has always been the case," Whedon explained. "She's very central to the movie and when we heard [about the pregnancy] we scheduled things around that. She's not going to spend the whole movie carrying groceries. We didn't trim any scenes. We're like: We'll make it work." To make it work, Whedon had to hire three stunt doubles that were used when Johansson's full body needed to be seen. "It's always funny. You walk by, 'Hey Scarlett. Oh. Weird. You're not Scarlett at all. Sorry,'" joked Evans. "A lot of fake Scarletts around." »
