New Avengers: Age Of Ultron Trailer Raises The Stakes

17 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though it wasn’t supposed to land until tomorrow, the newest, and presumably last trailer for Joss Whedon’s highly-anticipated sequel, Avengers: Age of Ultron has made its way online a bit earlier than expected.

Much like previous clips, this third sizzle reel devotes a significant chunk of screen time to James Spader’s titular, tyrannical villain. In fact, we learn much more about the origins of the power-mongering machine. Billed as a beacon of hope for mankind, Stark’s creation was birthed through the Ultron program, but it isn’t long before the AI becomes sentient and turns on its founding fathers – a fallen angel, for all intents and purposes.

To do this, Ultron utilizes newcomers Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) as pawns to muddy the waters, turning Earth’s Mightiest Heroes against one another in the hope that the super-powered group tears itself apart from the inside. »

Joss Whedon Q&A: 'I conceived Avengers 2 as a sci-fi horror movie'

17 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Blockbuster season is already visible on the horizon, and it's already been widely acknowledged that 2015's tentpole line-up is one for the ages.

Kicking off this year in style is Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age of Ultron, the follow-up to his record-breaking 2012 superhero team-up which will reunite Iron Man, Cap, Thor, Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, concluding Marvel Studios' Phase Two in the process.

Digital Spy spoke to a snowed-under but characteristically insightful Whedon on the film's set last summer, alongside other journalists. Read on for the full Q&A, in which Whedon gets into Age of Ultron's new relationships, his fear of complacency, and why this is Marvel's first bona fide superhero movie in years.

How much pressure do you feel following on from the astronomical success of The Avengers?

"There's a certain amount of expectation obviously, but for me the expectation is about can I make this more interesting? »

Vision Revealed in Final 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' Trailer!

17 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Marvel decided to give fans the final trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron today, after initially announcing that it would debut during the series premiere of American Crime tomorrow night. Included in this slew of new footage was our first official look at Vision, played by Paul Bettany. Granted, it was just a brief glimpse of the character, but at least we finally get to see him.

Vision has been teased several times over the past few months with promo artwork and other materials, but we still don't know exactly how he fits into the Avengers: Age of Ultron story. There is speculation that he was created by Ultron (James Spader), like he was in the comics, but it's also possible that Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) created him, since they are the ones who brought Ultron himself to life. Hopefully we'll learn more about »

Avengers: Age Of Ultron - the final trailer

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

Marvel releases a third full trailer for Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age Of Ultron...

Ah, you know the drill with this one by now. So much so that you've probably skipped the words and gone straight for the video down below. On the off-chance you're still here, due in the UK at the end of April is Joss Whedon's eagerly-awaited Avengers: Age Of Ultron, the sequel to the biggest comic book movie of all time.

This one brings together Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye, Black Widow, Nick Fury and Hulk, this time doing battle with James Spader's Ultron. The core cast of Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson and Samuel L Jackson are on board too.

So then: without further ado, here's the new trailer (which we're assuming to be the last full one). Now? We just sit back and await the film itself. »

New 'Avengers 2' Trailer Brings Action-Packed Insanity!

18 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last month, a rumor surfaced that the third trailer for Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron will debut during the midseason premiere of ABC's Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but that report was shut down right away by the studio.

Thankfully, Marvel decided to bring the trailer online a few days early, and you can watch it right here, to get your first look at Vision!

Why Avengers 2 Was A Nightmare, According To Joss Whedon

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

"Shoot me in the face!" Many fanboys and gals might think directing Avengers 2 is any comic book nut.s dream come true, but when you.ve been at this as long as Joss Whedon has, this seems like the only appropriate response. The man behind one of the year.s most eagerly awaited blockbuster sequels recently spoke with SFX magazine about what it.s like tackling such a film, and, basically, the man.s exhausted.  As quoted by The Hollywood Reporter, Whedon calls the experience "a nightmare" and "the hardest juggling act I.ve ever, ever had to pull off." If you were in his shoes, you might feel the same way. He said,  They.re very disparate characters. The joy of the Avengers is they really don.t belong in the same room.

Joss Whedon Reveals Why Shooting Avengers: Age Of Ultron Was A "Nightmare"

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

Talking to SFX (via The Hollywod Reporter), Joss Whedon revealed that working on Avengers: Age of Ultron was quite a challenge, and it's no wonder he's not keen on returning for the two-part Avengers: Infinity War. "Shoot me in the face! It is a nightmare," he revealed. "I long for the simple movies like Serenity! This is the hardest juggling act I have ever, ever tried to pull off." That doesn't sound good, but the filmmaker made similar comments after the first movie, so there's every chance he could return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe somewhere down the line (Captain Marvel please, Joss?). As for where the sequel picks up with the team, Whedon added: "They’re very disparate characters. The joy of the Avengers is they really don’t belong in the same room. It’s not like the X-Men who are all tortured by the same thing and have similar costumes. »

Joss Whedon Talks the 'Nightmare' of Directing 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'

19 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

One of the things I most appreciate about Joss Whedon is the fact he isn't afraid of speaking candidly when it comes to his work on the Marvel movies and once again he is speaking his mind and while the headline may sound a little dire, it isn't having to do with onset troubles, but more with maintaining cohesion with the Marvel Cinematic Universe when it comes to bringing together so many different kinds of heroes for Avengers: Age of Ultron. Speaking with SFX Magazine (via THR), Whedon said of Age of Ultron, "Shoot me in the face! It is a nightmare. I long for the simple movies like Serenity! This is the hardest juggling act I have ever, ever tried to pull off." He elaborates on these thoughts adding, "They're very disparate characters. The joy of the Avengers is they really don't belong in the same room. It's not »

Why The Hulk Is Going To Be Extremely Different In Avengers: Age Of Ultron

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

At this point, we need to come to terms with the fact that we might never see another solo Hulk movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. There.s already a lot on the docket and not everyone will be able to get their own adventures. But Marvel has compromised a bit. According to Joss Whedon, Hulk plays a major role in Avengers 2, way more so than in the first installment.  An exhausted Whedon recently spoke with SFX magazine (as quoted by The Hollywood Reporter) and teased what we can expect from Bruce Banner.s maniac alter-ego.  There is more Hulk in this movie than there was in the last . We went in with this mission statement, to shoot the Hulk like a character in a movie, and not like a .Look what we.ve got!. We have .overs. . blurry .Hulk.s over there!. bits. Very quick shots.
