Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. episode 18 review: Providence

16 April 2014 9:18 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Review James Hunt 16 Apr 2014 - 17:16

Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. is finally moving in the right direction. Here's James' review of Providence...

This review contains spoilers.

1.18 Providence

Here's the thing I want to know about Agents Of Shield: if they were capable of writing a good episode, why didn't they start seventeen episodes ago?

Still, in the wake of the events of last episode/Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Agents Of Shield has finally got a mission statement you can actually define: they're rebuilding Shield to combat Hydra. This is a hugely encouraging development, because while "protecting the world from weird stuff" might be a laudable goal, it's so general (and overused) as to be wholly uninspiring. This new structure is one I can get behind, because it's something we haven't really seen before: FBI, CIA and other acronym organisations can't really be dismantled, but fictional ones? That's another matter entirely. »

Tribeca: Between Nas and 'Begin Again,' what are the festival's must-see movies

16 April 2014 9:17 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

The Tribeca Film Festival began as a way for New York to rebuild culturally after the World Trade Center attacks in 2001. For the first time since then, the area around Ground Zero is dominated by a sparkly, newly finished Freedom Tower, which represents so much more than the city’s resilience and recovery. The Tribeca festival played a small, but not insignificant, role in that recovery, inviting artists and film lovers to the city and reassuring New Yorkers that life can be beautiful even in the darkest of days.

After more than a decade of growth, Tribeca is also entering »

Meet the 2014 Tribeca Filmmakers #39: Brin Hill Chased Snow for 'In Your Eyes,' Written By Joss Whedon

16 April 2014 8:06 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Writer-director Brin Hill is bringing his first feature since 2008 to Tribeca this year, after working as a writer on films like "Won't Back Down" and "Battle of the Year." Looking to Steven Soderbergh for inspiration and working with writer Joss Whedon ("The Avengers," "The Cabin in the Woods," and "Toy Story"), Hill is excited for the Tribeca audience reception of "In Your Eyes."  Tell us about yourself: I was a kid in Boston and a teenager in Santa Monica, from salty to sunshine, as if were. I’ve always been a filmmaker, but I’m also a recovering B-Boy and record digger, a decent two-guard who played college hoops, a creator of some cool branded entertainment, a teller of humorous stories about my seminal Little League experiences over a couple Jamesons, and a guy who nerds out on pulp and weird fiction. I’m excited for Tribeca audiences to see "In Your Eyes, »

Avengers: Age of Ultron - Paul Bettany confirms role as The Vision

16 April 2014 3:01 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Paul Bettany has confirmed his role in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

The Transcendence actor will play the Vision in Joss Whedon's upcoming Marvel Studios sequel.

Bettany revealed on Jimmy Kimmel Live that the rumours that he would graduate from Iron Man's AI butler Jarvis to the iconic Avenger were correct.

"He can do all sorts of things, but I'm not allowed to really talk about them and what we're going to do, because there might be a Marvel agent in the room who will actually wrestle me to the ground and fire me," he said.

Bettany has lent his voice to the three Iron Man films and The Avengers.

"Everything's a double-edged sword, because I was playing Jarvis for years," he continued. "My job was I would turn up at a recording studio for 45 minutes, do all my stuff, they would give me a huge bag of cash and then I'd go home. »

Elizabeth Olsen talks secrecy on the set of 'Age of Ultron'

15 April 2014 5:40 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) In addition to Paul Bettany as Vision, "The Avengers: Age of Ultron" sees the arrival of two new faces to the Marvel Cinematic Universe: Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen. The two are already familiar with working alongside each other, having starred together in the upcoming "Godzilla" reboot, but that experience pales in comparison to the high levels of secrecy surrounding Joss Whedon’s "Avengers" sequel. “I really just feel like I’m doing something that’s top secret and somehow has a lot more importance than anything else I’ve been around, so that alone is hilarious,” Olsen told Flaunt Magazine. “I want to take a photo and send to my friends, not that I want to tweet or Instagram it, just for personal reasons — and I feel like I’m going to get in trouble if I take a photo on set! »

When Firefly meets Disney

15 April 2014 3:12 PM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

If you ask practically any fan of Firefly, they'll tell you that the show was cancelled too soon, and needs to come back as soon as possible. There's been a movie continuation, Serenity, and a few spin-off Serenity comics, and while any 'Verse is better than no 'Verse, there's so much potential that it would be a shame not to have another Firefly series on our screens. With its atypical yet brilliant world-building, hilariously quotable dialogue, and literally the best cast dynamic ever, Firefly was a little slice of perfection.

In recent years, fans have got behind the idea of an animated series, with various artists even drawing up fan art of the characters.

Now, Firefly creator-showrunner Joss Whedon himself has endorsed one such fan effort, with the words, “There's art, then there's Great Art...”

While such a statement could easily apply to Firefly itself, fan creativity (of whatever kind »

Channing "Gambit" Tatum and Your Favorite Superheroes

15 April 2014 11:15 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

I've been quite blocked today (apologies) so I'd like to turn the time over to you for an open discussion. With news coming that Channing Tatum would love to play Gambit in a movie (poor Taylor Kitsch. It's not his fault everyone has tried to scrub X-Men Origins: Wolverine from their memory) Fox will surely be jumping all over that to make it happen.

Though the superhero movie boom will surely die out as all movie trends do eventually, we have no idea how long it will last so we'll just try to enjoy it while it does rather than bristle against it.

The other day on Facebook Stan Lee posted a 'name your five favorite superheroes' thread and I answered more quickly than I knew I could. Without thinking about it five names popped right into mind: Nightcrawler, The Human Torch, Storm, Spider-Man, and The Scarlet Witch. Other than »

Paul Bettany Discusses Playing the Vision in Age of Ultron

14 April 2014 3:31 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 

J.A.R.V.I.S. is getting a reboot in the next Avengers film, being upgraded from computer servant to android superhero. Paul Bettany talked to Jimmy Kimmel about his new role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as the Vision.

 

 

Paul Bettany is a talented actor, having been in Oscar-nominated films like A Beautiful Mind and Master and Commander: the Far Side of the World. He’s never been an A-Lister, but his role in the upcoming sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron could help raise his profile.  In previous Marvel films, he’s provided the voice of J.A.R.V.I.S., Tony Stark’s helpful computer AI. In the sequel, he’ll be playing the Vision, an android super hero who has been a member of the Avengers in the comics since 1968. The character was a revised version of earlier hero created by the legendary Jack Kirby in 1940, also called the Vision. »

(Cbr) It’s official: The Vision is coming to "The Avengers: Age of Ultron". Appearing Thursday on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" to promote his new movie "Transcendence", actor Paul Bettany confirmed he’s playing the superhero android in the Marvel sequel. The specifics of Joss Whedon’s vision for the Vision, however, remain under lock and key. “He can do all sorts of things,” said Bettany, who voiced J.A.R.V.I.S. in the three "Iron Man" films and in "The Avengers", “but I’m not allowed to really talk about them and what we’re going to do, because there might be a Marvel agent in the room who will actually wrestle me to the ground and fire me.” Bettany said he’s excited to have a more active role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, even if it comes at the expense of his very cushy "Iron Man" gig. »

'X-Men: Days of Future Past' Clip Shows New Mutants in Opening Battle

14 April 2014 11:45 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Mutants blast fire, slide on ice and jump through portals in a clip from X-Men: Days of Future Past that Ellen Page – the movie's Shadowcat – premiered during the MTV Movie Awards. The one-minute teaser shows a snippet of the movie's opening battle, which includes a lot of running and jumping as they react to a Sentinel attack. But, like a good teaser, it doesn't reveal much more than immediate urgency and anticipation, feelings that will only be resolved when the movie hits theaters on May 23rd.

Paul Bettany Talks Vision in 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'

14 April 2014 10:17 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in February, it was announced that the voice of Tony Stark's personal A.I. system J.A.R.V.I.S. in the Iron Man movies and Marvel's The Avengers, Paul Bettany, would be taking on the role of Vision in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

The actor recently appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, where he talked a bit about the challenges of accepting the role. While he couldn't delve too deep into Vision's story or powers, he did hint that it is quite a change going from a voice actor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to someone who is needed on set.

"Oh I can do all sorts of things, but I'm not allowed to really talk about them and what we're going to do because there might be a Marvel agent in the room who will actually wrestle me to the ground and fire me...It's very exciting for me, »

Paul Bettany has been chatting about his casting in Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age of Ultron

Paul Bettany has been on the publicity trail for the incoming Wally Pfister movie Transcendence. As you might expect though, questions have been turning towards his casting as The Vision in Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Whilst on Jimmy Kimmel's show in the Us, Bettany was thus asked about his work in The Avengers sequel. "Oh I can do all sorts of things, but I'm not allowed to really talk about them and what we're going to do because there might be a Marvel agent in the room who will actually wrestle me to the ground and fire me", he said.

Paul Bettany on playing The Vision in Avengers: Age of Ultron

We’ve known for a while now that Joss Whedon will expand the roster of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes for 2015′s Avengers: Age of Ultron, bringing in Godzilla duo Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen as mutant ‘miracle’ twins Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, while Paul Bettany is also set to add to his voice work as Jarvis by bringing life to The Vision. During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the British actor has spoken a little about his new role in the eagerly-anticipated sequel…

James Gunn confirms Guardian Of The Galaxy's Avengers links

13 April 2014 11:36 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

News Simon Brew 14 Apr 2014 - 07:28

It's definite: Guardians Of The Galaxy will be connecting up with The Avengers 3....

Surprising virtually nobody, director James Gunn has now gone on record to confirm that his upcoming Marvel movie, Guardians Of The Galaxy, will connect up with The Avengers 3.

The film, which is due out in August, most recently had a mid-credits sting in Thor: The Dark World, which hinted at one or two things about the film. And whilst it's not expected to have too much impact on Joss Whedon's now-shooting Avengers: Age Of Ultron, there are threads to do with Guardians Of The Galaxy that will instead go further down the line in the Marvel cinematic universe. "We are definitely connected to Avengers 3", Gunn asserted.

Gunn was chatting to Entertainment Weekly, who also caught up with Zoe Saldana. Saldana describes the film's heroes as "the renegades. We'll come in drunk, »

Paul Bettany Talks About Playing The Vision In Avengers: Age Of Ultron

13 April 2014 6:07 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Back in February, news broke that Paul Bettany, who voices Tony Stark’s AI pal Jarvis, had been cast as The Vision in Avengers: Age of Ultron. For those unfamiliar with the character, the Vision is a synthetic humanoid created by the villainous Ultron, who eventually betrays his master and joins the Avengers.

The actor’s next film to hit theaters will be Transcendence, and while on the promotional tour he stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! and was asked about his role in Joss Whedon’s upcoming Avengers sequel. Though he isn’t allowed to reveal much, Bettany does reflect on what it was like going from voicing Jarvis to playing an actual physical character on screen, humorously saying:

X-Men Days Of Future Past Spoilers: 25 Moments Fox Want You To Know

13 April 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Twentieth Century Fox

It goes without saying that the fever levels of anticipation surrounding Bryan Singer’s return to the hallowed X-Men franchise are reaching boiling point – a potent fan-pot that 20th Century Fox are more than happy to stir with the help of 25 unique images that all help to flesh out the world events up to multiple points in the film’s timeline.

Speaking of timelines, for any of the uninitiated Days of Future Past will be dealing with both sets of our loveable mutants; the original Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen-fronted present-day cast, as well as the 1962 younger versions who were played to perfection in 2011′s critically-acclaimed X-men: First Class, where we witnessed one of the most magnetic (in more ways than one) villains in Michael Fassbender’s portrayal of Magneto.

Tying together all the films under one banner in a way the likes of only Joss Whedon knows how, »
