Showrunners Documentary Chronicles the Rise of TV's Top Creators

2 hours ago | TVGuide - Breaking News | See recent TVGuide - Breaking News news »

For TV fans, showrunners like Joss Whedon, Damon Lindelof, Kurt Sutter and J.J. Abrams are just as famous as the stars on their shows. A new documentary, available Friday on iTunes and Video On Demand (and in select theaters), takes an inside look at their jobs and what it takes to make a hit series.

Showrunners: The Art of Running a TV Show is the brainchild of Irish filmmaker Des Doyle, who spent more than four years shooting the documentary. "It was borne out of the fact that I'm a huge, über TV fan," Doyle says....

Robert Downey Jr on Avengers and working with Joss Whedon

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

Tony Stark himself, Robert Downey Jr, has been chatting about Avengers: Age Of Ultron...

One film that wasn't announced as part of the huge collection of Marvel movies revealed earlier this week was Iron Man 4. This wasn't a surprise in the end, but there was a point a few weeks back when Robert Downey Jr seemed to be having a lot of fun in interviews, firstly suggesting it would happen, then declaring it wouldn't.

He's given a new interview now to Marvel, but this one seems much straighter, as he's been talking about Iron Man 3, and what to expect from Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age Of Ultron.

Downey Jr described Iron Man 3 as a film about Tony "transcending his dependence on the merits of continuing to wear your wound ... that was the question I was always asking, why doesn’t he get those shards out? It’s dangerous »

How Long Will Robert Downey Jr. Play Iron Man?

9 hours ago | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Brooke Anderson caught up with Rdj at the BAFTA Awards on Thursday, where he opened up about his future as Iron Man.

When Robert Downey Jr. isn't hanging out at the Dmv, he's usually either making movies or -- as was the case tonight -- accepting awards. Et's Brooke Anderson caught up with Rdj at the BAFTA Awards on Thursday, where he opened up about his future as Iron Man.

Pics: Rdj Visiting the Dmv is Exactly as Fun as You'd Expect

Rdj helped Marvel announce its phase three slate of films earlier this week, which includes two Avengers movies (Infinity War - Part 1 and Part 2), so Brooke just had to know how long does Rdj plan on playing his superhero character?

"It may verge on double digits," said Rdj, who has already played Iron Man in five different movies. "But it'll probably end up being a little shy."

Marvel Told Us Who That Mystery Woman Is In Avengers 2: Age Of Ultron

18 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

She isn.t Cobie Smulders. She isn.t Natalie Portman (though given the events of the end of Thor: The Dark World, that would make a lot of sense). Instead, the identity of the mystery woman standing next to Thor (Chris Hemsworth) in the recent trailer for Joss Whedon.s Avengers: Age of Ultron finally has been revealed to be actress Claudia Kim. 한국이 정말 정말 그립습니다..! 멋진 Joss 감독님. 마블 만화에서 튀어나온듯한 캐릭터이시다^^ 저에게 우리말도 한마디씩 꼭 연습하시는 유머러스한 분! pic.twitter.com/gIR4FFPDTP— Claudia 수현 (@ClaudiaSKim) June 9, 2014 We suspected as much, though Yahoo Movies confirmed that it.s Claudia Kim in the trailer.

31 scary TV episodes that truly terrified us

30 October 2014 8:23 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From The Twilight Zone to Penny Dreadful, Doctor Who and more, Den Of Geek’s writers revisit the TV episodes that truly terrify them…

It’s Halloween! Icicles are glistening from window sills. Chestnuts are roasting on open fires. North Pole elves are… hang on, no. None of that nice, fluffy stuff is happening. At Halloween, demonic creatures hunt for flesh, monsters creep out of their graves, and TV does its level best to freak us all the hell out.

In the spirit of all that, we asked our writers to select and share the TV episodes, horror or otherwise, that have made them whimper with fear. Here they all are, 31 of them, because, well, at Halloween, we like things to add up to 31.

Note that this isn’t a Top 10, or a Best Of, nor is it listed in order of scariness. It’s a collection of the particular »

Why The Avengers: Age Of Ultron Filmed In A Lot Of Cities Around The World

30 October 2014 7:43 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Though they're known as Earth's Mightiest Heroes, the titular heroes of The Avengers spent most of the first movie in the United States. And notably all of it was shot there. (Yes, even the Germany and India segments.) But after making $1.5 billion dollars worldwide, it seems only fair to share The Avengers with the wider world and its gorgeous locations. According to helmer Joss Whedon, the globe trotting of this production will only enhance the narrative of this superhero ensemble. In an appearance on the Marvel webseries The Watcher (via Coming Soon), Avengers: Age of Ultron writer-director Joss Whedon opened up about the locations of this hotly anticipated sequel, and what he hopes they'll achieve: "We wanted the world perspective on The Avengers.[We shot] up in the Italian Alps. We were in Seoul, Korea. We were in Johannesburg. We shot a little in Bangladesh. Then all over England." Never »

Review: ‘Showrunners: The Art Of Running a TV Show’

30 October 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Showrunners: The Art of Running a TV Show” should probably be required viewing in film/TV studies classes, but as a mass-consumption documentary, it doesn’t quite pass the test. Much of that has to do with a lack of focus, inasmuch as it offers a snapshot of the exalted status of TV producers at an interesting time, but without a clear point of view or direction. The producers, obviously, are good storytellers, and there is something to be said — touched on here — about their shifting roles as TV has embraced an auteur quality. Still, the resulting doc finally feels like less than the sum of its anecdotes.

Irish filmmaker Des Doyle received funding from both the Irish Film Board and Kickstarter to assemble the project, which might explain a certain wide-eyed, rudimentary approach to the topic, from defining the term “showrunner” and the rungs of the writer-producer ladder to »

Joss Whedon Talks ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’

30 October 2014 4:41 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Details, details, details!

The Internet is hungry for more details on the upcoming “Avengers: Age of Ultron.”

After the leak of the trailer and the two official trailer releases afterwards, many fans, bloggers and sites are breaking down the details frame-by-frame.

So the best source of information will be from the film’s director Joss Whedon.

Marvel Entertainment had a sit down interview with him.

Whedon revealed some of the places they shot for the movie including Italy, South Korea and Bangladesh. He also talked about the cast and film editing for the movie.

Just too bad he provide more details about the trailer’s mystery woman played by South Korean actress Claudia Kim or Andy Serkis. Serkis is rumored to be Ulysses Klaw. There’s a lot of rumors about Kim, but the most likely scenario will be she is just a scientist—not a superhero like Wasp or Cybermancer. »

Joss Whedon talks global feel of Avengers: Age Of Ultron

30 October 2014 12:13 AM, PDT | TotalFilm | See recent TotalFilm news »

While it’s tempting to get entirely swept away by Marvel’s exciting Phase 3 plans, there is still the small matter of Avengers: Age Of Ultron to be dealt with first, with Joss Whedon explaining that the second film will have a more global feel to it… “Up in the Italian Alps,” said Whedon, when asked where the film had shot. “We were in Seoul, Korea. We were in Johannesburg. We shot a little in Bangladesh. Then all over England.” Quite the globetrotting production then, although as Whedon explains, there was a reason for expanding the...

Joss Whedon Talks 'Avengers 2' and Its World Perspective

29 October 2014 4:48 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Many fans are still coming down from yesterday's onslaught of Marvel announcements, including the nine movies in Phase Three and the extended trailer from the highly-anticipated Avengers: Age of Ultron. Today, director Joss Whedon offered a few new details about his Phase Two sequel.

We already knew that the film was shot in several different locations all throughout Europe, but the director also confirmed that they shot in Bangladesh.

"[We shot] up in the Italian Alps. We were in Seoul, Korea. We were in Johannesburg. We shot a little in Bangladesh. Then all over England."

When asked if the movie will have more of a "global feel," the filmmaker hinted that these heroes have made plenty of enemies all over the world.

"Weirdly enough, the whole film takes place in Cleveland. No, this is a very global film. We wanted the world perspective on The Avengers, what they're doing, what they've been doing and who they are. »

Will Black Widow be killed off in Avengers: Age of Ultron?

29 October 2014 4:20 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thomas Roach on whether Black Widow could be killed off in Avengers: Age of Ultron….

There was big news from Marvel yesterday as the studio announced its Phase Three line up which certainly has lots of fans excited, as well as giving us more information with which to speculate. Now we know what films will be coming out over the next few years, we can try to predict certain things that will happen, and one thing I am now predicting is that Black Widow will be killed off in Avengers: Age of Ultron. This is just speculation but hear me out…

Marvel have already confirmed that by the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron, we shall have a new roster of characters in the Avengers line up. So we can expect there to be a massive falling out between characters which causes them to leave the team, or that we »

Showrunners Take the Spotlight at Documentary Premiere

29 October 2014 1:02 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The obvious takeaway from the new documentary “Showrunners: The Art of Running a TV Show,” is that writers rooms are stocked with donuts and cupcakes – and that being a showrunner is very hard.

“It’s like painting a painting while writing a novel while doing your taxes,” says “House of Lies” creator and showrunner Matthew Carnahan in the film. “Utterly consuming,” adds Joss Whedon. “It’s too good to quit, and too hard to do,” says Bill Prady.

The three showrunners and many more opened up to filmmaker Des Doyle and his team, and at the film’s Tuesday night premiere at the Television Academy, the showrunners and filmmakers talked about being a part of the ambitious undertaking.

“I’ve always been fascinated with what goes on behind the scenes, and that got me into filmmaking,” said Doyle. Doyle grew up in Ireland a fan of American television and said »

Theory: The Real reason Black Widow didn't pick up Thor's hammer in 'Age of Ultron' trailer

29 October 2014 9:53 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Due to Hydra shenanigans, Marvel had to scramble to put together an exclusive clip from “The Avengers: Age of Ultron” after “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” last night. What they chose was pure, distilled Whedon: delightful, drunken group banter punctuated with attempts to lift Thor’s hammer. You can watch the whole thing over here. But something caught my eye. Natasha demurs from the testosterone driven pissing contest. Or Does She? Joss Whedon is well known for his geeky Easter eggs. You could argue Mjolnir shifting for Captain America was a nod to a time when Rogers was indeed found worthy. So, maybe Natasha didn’t want to look like a fool struggling to lift Mjolnir. Or maybe she just didn’t want to deal with the costume change.  Image from: What If: Age of Ultron #3 »

Robert Downey Jr. on Tony Stark's Progression in Avengers: Age Of Ultron

29 October 2014 8:43 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

We've already posted interviews with Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, and Mark Ruffalo as they discussed Joss Whedon's Avengers Age of Ultron and their characters in that movie. We also got some huge Marvel movie news yesterday when the studio announced their exciting line-up of films through 2019! But, now it's time to see what Robert Downey Jr. has to say about Age of Ultron and his character Tony Stark. He begins by talking about his first initial reaction to getting the script from Whedon.

"Well, first of all, he’s a good writer, so I always tend to think generally speaking, 'Is this a movie I wanna see?' ‘cause all the fine points are gonna get worked out. At this point, as the Mayor of Marvel (laughter), there’s gonna be so many squeaky wheels along the way. Many of them practical and others just, you know, creative departures or differences or whatever. »
