Mark Ruffalo Talks Avengers: Age Of Ultron, the Ambition of the Sequel, Columbo, His Thoughts on Planet Hulk, and More at Comic-Con

2 hours ago | | See recent news »

Shortly after Mark Ruffalo and his Avengers: Age of Ultron co-stars left Hall H at Comic-Con (read our recap of the panel here), they participated in video interviews on a very crowded press line.   When Ruffalo finally got to the group I was paired with, he talked about what impressed him about Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age of Ultron script,  the ambition of the sequel, meeting the expectations, his thoughts on a Planet Hulk movie, and the status of Columbo.  If you're not familiar with the online campaign to have Ruffalo play Columbo, read about it here before watching the interview. Hit the jump for what Ruffalo had to say and look for a lot more video interviews with the Avengers: Age of Ultron cast soon. Mark Ruffalo: When does he start filming Columbo? 1:00 - What impressed him about the Avengers: Age of Ultron script when he first read it? »

Comic-Con: 'Avengers 2' Props Reveal Ultron Mark 1 and Cap's Cracked Shield

8 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Today is the last day of the Con! And even though Marvel owned the later half of yesterday with their big Saturday evening panel in Hall H, they aren't quite through giving fans a proper tease of Avengers: Age of Ultron. They have debuted two more props on the convention center showroom floor, offering a peek at Captain America's cracked shield, and what appears to be Ultron Mark 1. Both of these were spotted in the footage that wowed audiences yesterday. Check it out, and then read on for more information about how Cap's shield gets destroyed, and why Ultron's first body looks like it was pulled from Tony Stark's dumpster.

Avengers: Age of Ultron Props and Footage Description From Comic-Con

8 hours ago | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Marvel Studios may have failed to make many major announcements at the San Diego Comic-Con this weekend (though to be fair, they did reveal the release date for the Guardians of the Galaxy sequel), but those lucky enough to be at their panel on Saturday night were treated to brand new footage from Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Below is a lengthy description of the scenes that were shown, and they reveal a fair bit about the plot of the movie and Ultron, the villainous robot who is voiced by The Blacklist’s James Spader.

Marvel have revealed that this footage won’t be making an online debut anytime soon, and Guardians of the Galaxy director quickly took to his Twitter account to debunk rumours that unlike Captain America: The First Avenger – which had an Avengers Assemble teaser – this will be attached to the end of his movie.

10 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Coming hot on the heels of yesterday’s Avengers: Age of Ultron panel [which you can watch here], Marvel has released a couple of images showing props from the hotly-anticipated film – in particular, Captain America’s shattered shield from the footage that was screened [read a description here], as well as a look at Ultron Mark 1…

Sdcc '14: First Look At 'Ultron Mark 1' From Avengers: Age Of Ultron?

11 hours ago | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Hank Pym not being Ultron's creator in Avengers: Age of Ultron is one major change, but now it seems like we should expect another. Based on the footage description for the movie (which you can read by clicking here), it sounds as if Tony Stark will be responsible only for the creation of the Ultron A.I. and not his first physical form. What you see below appears to be the first crude body that the villain builds for himself when he attacks Earth's Mightiest Heroes for the first time in Avengers Tower. Talk about a Frankenstein feel, eh? What do you guys think?  Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Cobie Smulders, Don Cheadle, Paul Bettany, James Spader, and Samuel L. Jackson, and is set to be released on May 1st, »

Comic-Con: Guillermo Del Toro on His New Black and White Film and Call Out to Fans

12 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

He’s got the greenlight for “Pacific Rim 2,” is editing “Crimson Peak,” is a producer on “The Strain” and “Book of Life” and a writer on “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.”

But what multi-hyphenate Guillermo Del Toro is most excited about is his “little black and white movie” that he’s planning to write, produce and direct as soon as post-production wraps on “Crimson Peak” and while “The Strain” is still shooting.

Currently untitled, Del Toro says his project will be an “intimate story with a few characters and one creature,” and completely in his control. He’s working up the budget on the film now, but said it will be as intimate as the project itself, a big change from “Pacific Rim,” which carried a $190 million pricetag.

Call the untitled black and white film his “Much Ado About Nothing.” (When Joss Whedon was in post »

Pics of the Cast of Avengers 2 and Ant-Man at Comic Con’s Signing Booths

13 hours ago | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

It looks like almost everyone from Joss Whedon’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” and everyone from “Ant-Man” (who is directing this movie again?) were at Comic Con this weekend. After the Marvel panel, the cast went to the signing booths and scrawled their names on whatever weird people in costumes gave them to sign. Almost all the cast of “Avengers 2″ were accounted for, with the exception of Scarlett Johansson, who is either preggers at home or promoting “Lucy,” her new Luc Besson movie. Also not present is Robert Downey Jr. and writer/director Joss Whedon. These are the pictures from those two signings. See? Who says you need to be in San Diego to get up close and personal with the stars. The only thing missing from these pics is having to breathe in that smelly guy who has been wearing that Iron Man costume for the last three days while standing in line. »

'Avengers: Age Of Ultron' Full Concept Art Buries The Heroes In a Horde Of Robots

17 hours ago | | See recent news »

All week long Marvel has been teasing out posters for Avengers: Age Of Ultron, and today they finally revealed the Hulk and Thor pieces of the puzzle that united everything together. The picture they complete is one where the heroes are being buried by a seemingly endless horde created by Ultron while Vision hovers above it all in the background. It was a bit disappointing when Iron Man 3's ending turned into a whirlwind of CGI robots flying all over the place, so we are a little concerned that Joss Whedon's movie doesn't fall into a similar fate, but it's hard to deny this concept art doesn't give us some geeky warm and fuzzies. By the way, Marvel will be holding their panel in a few hours (5:30 pm Pst, to be precise), so expect a few more Avengers goodies...

'Avengers: Age Of Ultron' footage is playful and badass all at once

26 July 2014 10:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Marvel panel really only focused on the two 2015 releases this time, and that's fine. It gave them time to have all of the Avengers come out and discuss the movie and play around and be super charming, because they are. It also meant that they cut a longer than average sizzle reel to show the crowd. They're still working on the movie, but they're pretty far into the process at this point, so what they had to show us was surprisingly finished, and it was very impressive. I visited the London sets for the film, and the first scene they showed was shot on one of the most impressive sets I've ever seen, a three-story completely accurate version of The Avengers Tower, complete with labs for Tony and Bruce and a downstairs that leads to a Quinjet landing pad. Wildly impressive. As the footage begins, the Avengers are relaxing, »

Marvel mania grips Hall H

26 July 2014 10:20 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Marvel Studios repeated last year’s triumph with another rousing finale to three days of Hollywood presentations that sparked near hysteria as virtually the entire cast of Avengers: Age Of Ultron descended on Hall H.

Saturday evening (26) was always going to be a crazed affair and 10 minutes before the panel started chants of “We Want Marvel” rang out through the air and impromptu Mexican waves pulsed through the 6,500-seat venue.

After an opening montage of Marvel films, studio head Kevin Feige arrived and amid an atmosphere of intense excitement said he wanted to talk about 2015 and promptly introduced the key cast of July release Ant-Man.

Peyton Reed, who recently replaced Edgar Wright and will start shooting in two weeks in Atlanta, chatted to cast members Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas and Corey Stoll – all Con debutants.

Con regular Evangeline Lilly arrived when Feige confirmed she would play the daughter of Douglas’ character, Hank Pym.[p »

Video Blog: Recap of Marvel Studios Comic-Con 2014 Hall H Panel

26 July 2014 9:36 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Another year, another Comic-Con, another exciting Marvel Studios panel to end three days of madness. This time it was the return of the Avengers. A few years ago, Marvel brought the entire Avengers cast down to Comic-Con and it was a historic reveal to have them all there, all on stage, for the fans to scream cheer at. This year they tried to do that again, bringing most of the cast from Joss Whedon's follow-up Avengers: Age of Ultron. Whedon couldn't make it, but they did show us footage from Avengers 2 as well as another promo reel for Peyton Reed's Ant-Man made specifically for Comic-Con. After exiting the panel we took a moment to record a quick video blog with our thoughts and reactions to all the footage we saw today. Enjoy. Here's our first video blog from Comic-Con 2014 featuring Ethan and I discussing Marvel's Hall H panel: »

Watch The Avengers: Age Of Ultron Cast Assemble At Comic-Con

26 July 2014 9:23 PM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It was back in 2010 . my first year at San Diego Comic-Con . that I got to witness one of the coolest things that I have ever experienced in my young life. At the end of the Marvel Studios panel that year, director Joss Whedon was joined on stage by every single member of The Avengers - including the newly cast Mark Ruffalo as Hulk and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye. As you can see in the video above, tonight my memory got a sequel thanks to the cast of The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Marvel Studios once again held their annual presentation at San Diego Comic-Con this evening, and in addition to bringing out Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll and director Peyton Reed for Ant-Man, the comic book movie studio also once again assembled the Avengers in Hall H. While Joss Whedon couldn.t make it to the event »

Paul Bettany Talks Avengers: Age Of Ultron, The Vision, His Powers and Abilities, His Relationship to The Avengers, and More

26 July 2014 8:55 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

I never thought I'd see one actor play two characters within the cinematic Marvel universe, but if anyone can do it, Paul Bettany can.  As the voice of J.A.R.V.I.S., Tony Stark's constant AI companion since the first Iron Man film, Bettany is one of the longest standing members of the Marvel crew.  In Avengers: Age of Ultron Bettany steps into the shoes (or cape) of the Vision.  A newly created android who is somehow maybe sort of related to J.A.R.V.I.S. - unsurprisingly they weren't telling us a whole lot in advance of Marvel's Hall H panel. Earlier today at Comic-Con I sat down for a group interview with Bettany about the Vision Age of Ultron.  He walked up to the table, pretending to read a message on his phone intently, “I'm just looking up something.  Yep, I can’t say anything. »

Robert Downey Jr. brings roses and Josh Brolin as every Avenger gets a Marvel panel moment

26 July 2014 8:55 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

San Diego — Rumor had it that during their highly anticipated Comic-Con panel Marvel Studios would announce which actor is playing the new Doctor Strange in Scott Derrickson's upcoming big screen adaptation. Rumor also had it that Marvel would reveal who is playing Captain Marvel, a much-needed super-powered female Avenger that is expected to cameo in "Avengers: Age of Ultron." Neither event happened. Instead, the studio announced that a sequel to "Guardians of the Galaxy" has already been greenlit and it already has a release date of July 28, 2017. Oh yeah, and they showed a massive amount of footage from Joss Whedon's "Avengers" sequel with almost the entire cast on hand. A who's who of Hollywood stars including Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man) Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Chris Evans (Captain America), Mark Ruffalo (Hulk), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Quicksilver), Elisabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Paul Bettany »

Comic-Con: Marvel Screens Avengers: Age Of Ultron Footage

26 July 2014 8:03 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

When Marvel comes to Comic-Con these days, it comes big. While the panel was decidedly lower key than some of their previous appearances – even with the groovy, high-energy, flower-throwing entrance by Robert Downey Jr. and the gang – the definite highlight besides the Avengers themselves was the first glimpse of footage from Age Of Ultron.While Joss Whedon himself couldn’t be there in person (he’s recovering from knee surgery), Kevin Feige brought an exciting clip package that kicked off with the team kicking back in the Avengers tower after a party. You may have seen a picture of this scene, which finds the heroes in a loose, happy, mood, all (bar Black Widow) making an attempt to lift Thor’s hammer – surely more Excalibur than excelsior – and one by one failing. And that’s even with Downey Jr’s Tony Stark using an Iron Man gauntlet and roping in Don Cheadle’s James Rhodes, »
