27 March 2015 10:32 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

We kicked off this week with a look at Hot Toys new Hawkeye action figure from Avengers: Age of Ultron. Now, fittingly, we end it with one of the coolest dolls offered in this latest line-up. Yes, its our first look at Tony Stark's Iron Man Mark VII Stealth Armor.

The Iron Man Mark VII Stealth Mode collectible figure is the latest addition to Hot Toys upcoming action figure line for director Joss Whedon's anticipated sequel.

Keanu Classic: Speed

27 March 2015 6:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

We at Thn collectively love Keanu Reeves and have been immensely excited about his return this year in John Wick. Although not released in UK cinemas until April, Thn have been lucky enough to have already seen it and we can tell you that it is all kinds of awesome.

John Wick was so brilliant that it has awoken my long-forgotten admiration for Mr Reeves and compelled me to revisit his extensive back catalogue immediately.  As readers of previous instalments will remember Keanu Reeves was one of my teenage girl crushes alongside Christian Slater. Given that I was a teen during the early noughties these choices might seem a little odd to some of you. Me and my friend though had different tastes to our more mainstream friends – and my choices make a little more sense than Val Kilmer and cartoon character Gambit. Keanu celebrated 50 last year but doesn’t »

9 Reasons Why the 'X-Files' Revival Matters

27 March 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Admit it, millennials: When the news broke Tuesday that FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully would be returning to the Fox network for a six-episode reboot of "The X-Files," many of you said, "Who are Mulder and Scully?" After all, the show has been off the air for 13 years. Since then, Gillian Anderson (Scully) moved to England and did period dramas, while David Duchovny (Mulder) became that creepy old lech on Showtime's "Californication," and "X-Files" creator Chris Carter went Mia and was apparently abducted by aliens.

Still, even if "The X-Files," its stars, and its creator haven't been pinging the cultural radar much in recent years, the return of the show with its original cast and showrunner on board is a huge deal. Much of what we now take for granted in pop culture -- especially on TV and online -- owes a tremendous debt to the 1993-2002 sci-fi drama series. »

Watch Avengers: Age of Ultron teaser: It's Hulk vs the Hulkbuster

26 March 2015 11:59 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

A battle between the Hulk and the Hulkbuster causes massive destruction in a new teaser for Avengers: Age of Ultron.

The international television spot features Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) looking on in awe as Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr) dons Hulkbuster armour to contain a rampaging Hulk (Mark Ruffalo).

Joss Whedon's latest Marvel Studios movie brings the Avengers back together to face off with a malevolent artificial intelligence called Ultron (James Spader).

Whedon recently spoke in-depth to Digital Spy about Avengers: Age of Ultron, revealing that he initially conceived of the movie as a blend of science fiction and horror.

"This time, I really want to make more of a sort of science fiction horror movie, and then in the first week I was like, 'This is clearly a western'," he told us.

"Then it became a war movie again, then oh, it's a romantic comedy, a '40s romantic comedy. »

Captain America Drop Kicks An Ultron Bot In Avengers 2 International Clip

26 March 2015 8:55 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Fancy seeing Captain America drop kick and decapitate an Ultron bot? Of course you do. So I.m not going to waste your time with any preamble, just watch the Australian television spot for Avengers: Age Of Ultron and immediately start to salivate.  Sensational. Despite being just 15 seconds long, this brief look at Joss Whedon.s hugely anticipated sequel rams home the two main aspects of Avengers: Age Of Ultron. Firstly, that the world is in utter chaos because of Ultron.s decision to wreak havoc across the globe. And secondly, that the Avengers themselves are going through their own issues. That.s why Iron Man has created a Hulk-buster suit that he uses to drag the big, green monster through a skyscraper.  The fact that both Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Captain America (Chris Evans) are easily able to destroy the Ultron bots with an almighty swing of their hammer »

10 Things Marvel Wants You To Forget About Deadpool

25 March 2015 11:25 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Comics

The X-Men are a serious bunch – and often to a fault. Whilst the epic superhero soap opera of the oppressed mutant underclass and their crazy abilities only really works if you take it on totally po-faced (as all of the best writers of the comic, from Chris Claremont to Joss Whedon, have done), it doesn’t all have to be doom and gloom. And yet, for the majority of their life, that has been the case.

Which is why Deadpool was introduced. Well, Deadpool was introduced because Rob Liefeld – infamous in the comics industry for having a very long career despite not being very good at drawing – came up with him, and New Mutants (later X-Force) writer Fabian Nicieza needed a new foil for his younger superhero team. And Wade Wilson seemed to fit the bill.

They eventually developed the Merc With A Mouth into the character he is today: the nigh-invulnerable, »

'Avengers 2' TV Spot Has More Hulk Vs Hulkbuster Action!

25 March 2015 9:21 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Captain America (Chris Evans) are seen taking on Ultron's robotic army in a new international TV spot for Avengers: Age of Ultron. While most of this footage we have seen before, it includes the catchy tagline "Earth's mightiest heroes just got mightier". How can you disagree with that after watching Cap literally dropkick his shield into one of Ultron's robots? We also get an extended look at some of Hulk's fight against Iron Man in his new Hulkbuster armor.

Marvel Studios presents Avengers: Age of Ultron, the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time, Marvel's The Avengers, which took in over $1.5 billion in 2012. This high-powered sequel follows Tony Stark as he tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program. When things go awry, Earth's Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the »

How Avengers 2 Fixes Hulk's Clothing Malfunction Problem

25 March 2015 8:52 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we've seen Bruce Banner (both the Edward Norton and Mark Ruffalo versions) suffer the embarrassment that comes with unintentional public nudity multiple times. This is because whatever clothes he happens to be wearing tend to shred like paper whenever he transforms into the Hulk. This is definitely a problem that's been going on for far too long, but it's one that is finally given a solution in Joss Whedon's upcoming The Avengers: Age of Ultron. ComicBook.com has gotten its hands on a Disney-published list of 13 facts about the next Marvel Studios blockbuster, and included amongst trivia about new characters and the sweet new Avengers Tower is an interesting tidbit about the way that the film will be finally addressing Hulk's tendency to rip his pants and leave Bruce Banner stranded without clothing. Allowing him to avoid this is the fact that he's now »

'Avengers 2' Preview Video Goes On Set with the Cast

25 March 2015 3:12 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Marvel is getting set to destroy the box office competition once again with the May 1 release of the highly-anticipated Avengers: Age of Ultron. Entertainment news programs Access Hollywood and Extra both got to visit the set in London last year, revealing new behind-the-scenes videos. Access Hollywood's piece gives us a few brief glimpses inside Avengers Tower, the new headquarters for Earth's Mightiest Heroes. Mark Ruffalo and Jeremy Renner also take us inside the Quinjet set while Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Hemsworth tease "upgrades" to their costumes.

Extra's video gives us a quick glimpse inside Bruce Banner's (Mark Ruffalo) laboratory, although it is after the Hulk made his presence known, since the lab is highly damaged. Chris Hemsworth and Chris Evans also reveal that they're glad they aren't writer-director Joss Whedon, since he has the unenviable task of trying to top 2012's Marvel's The Avengers.

Idris Elba Eyed For Star Trek 3 Villain Role

25 March 2015 9:08 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After a string of reports linking him to be the next James Bond, it seems that Luther star Idris Elba is circling another long-running franchise, as Variety brings word that the fan favorite actor is in talks to play the villain role in Justin Lin’s Star Trek 3.

At the time of writing, not much is known about the potential role nor how close Elba is to signing along the dotted line. Still, the report does offer up some interesting tidbits relating to the threequel, and how it may include the Klingons in some shape or form.

Details of Elba’s role are being kept under wraps. Early rumors suggest that Klingons would be the main villains in this movie, as they have not had a full presence in previous installments, but sources would not confirm if that was the case.

What we do know for sure is that, »

Fun Facts about Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron

25 March 2015 8:26 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With less than a month to go until the UK release of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Marvel Studios has released thirteen “fun facts” about the hotly-anticipated sequel, which you can check out right here…

1. Hulk got a welcomed upgrade to his wardrobe with the addition of stretchy pants, which he wears underneath his clothes. No more will he be caught in the embarrassing situation of being half-naked in shredded clothing when he Hulks-out—the pants, made of high-tech, microfiber fabric, stretch with him.

2. Thanks to Tony Stark’s engineering skills, Hawkeye received an upgrade to his weaponry. He now has many new arrow tips that serve different purposes. Some of these are explained in the movie and others the audience will just get the joy of seeing deployed on screen. Hawkeye’s quiver has also changed—it is more automated and faster loading, and is capable of holding nine arrows. »

Exclusive Interview: Alan Tudyk Talks ‘Con Man’ And ‘Firefly’

25 March 2015 6:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It is a well-known fact here at Thn that I’m somewhat a fan of Firefly. The sci-fi western starring Nathan Fillion and Alan Tudyk combined a great world, intriguing narrative and some utterly brilliant characters with a typically snappy Joss Whedon script. What’s not to love? Who knows, but Firefly was cancelled after a limited run in 2002, despite its Browncoat army of fans protests.

Since the show’s farewell movie Serenity, Joss Whedon has successfully assembled The Avengers on the silver screen already and is overseeing the upcoming sequel Avengers: Age Of Ultron, while it’s cast has been busy on films like I, Robot, Dodgeball and Wreck-it Ralph, not to mention starring in hit shows Castle, Suits and Homeland. Had everybody moved on and forgotten their love of Firefly and its cast? Of course not!

11 Ways Age Of Ultron Could Still Surprise Everyone

25 March 2015 5:21 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Studios

The world doesn’t have much time left to wait for one of the biggest movies of the year and undoubtedly the biggest superhero movie of all time.

Avengers: Age of Ultron has comic book movie fans on tenterhooks. The numerous trailers and television spots that have been released and aired have really tantalised and teased, as Joss Whedon looks to achieve the impossible and exceed the thrills – and indeed box office success – of the high-octane $1.5 billion grossing movie The Avengers.

The movie will see Ultron – an artificial intelligence created by Tony Stark to protect the world – turning on his creator and indeed on the world as a whole. The Avengers will need to be at their mightiest to combat him as he builds a massive drone army and upgrades himself to the point of near-indestructibility.
