Marvel, meanwhile, has offered some clues as to what the film is about, by release the first official synopsis for the movie. Without further ado, here's what to expect from The Avengers 2....

Official Plot Details for ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’

15 September 2014 8:28 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Today we’ve gotten the first official plot details on Joss Whedon’s highly anticipated Marvel sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron. There isn’t much information in the plot summery that most people couldn’t surmise from the titular villain or other casting announcements, but at least it’s now official. The Avengers in 2012 ended up being one of the best blockbusters in years upon its release and became the third highest grossing film of all time, so it is probably safe to assume that the sequel could be even better and be a strong contender for biggest movie off all time when it kicks off summer next year, given the immense talent behind the film.

Ultron has been one of the biggest threats in Marvel comics since his creation in 1968 and given that James Spader is pretty incredible in just about everything he is in, the human hating robot »

Avengers: Age Of Ultron Now Has an Official Synopsis, Check Out the Film’s Plot

15 September 2014 5:32 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Even though I think Guardians of the Galaxy trumped 2012's Avengers in overall quality, I wouldn't count the supremely talented Joss Whedon out in terms of one-upping it in the Avengers: Age of Ultron. He's certainly not lacking in ability and, if this synopsis is any indication (and one assumes that it is), Age of Ultron will be insanely eventful.  It also looks like it corrects the original film's first act issues. "When Tony Stark jumpstarts a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as they battle to save the planet from destruction at the hands of the villainous Ultron."  Hit the jump to check out the full synopsis.  The film stars Robert Downey Jr.Chris EvansChris HemsworthMark RuffaloScarlett JohanssonJeremy Renner, Paul Bettany, »

'Punisher' Cameo in 'Captain America 2'; Marvel One-Shot Planned?

15 September 2014 11:50 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Those anxiously waiting to see The Punisher back on the big screen after the rights reverted to Marvel Studios and Disney may have already gotten their wish, though they just don't know it yet. According to the directors of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Frank Castle may have made a cameo appearance in their sequel, which just hit Blu-ray and DVD last week.

Brothers Joe Russo and Anthony Russo teased that the anti-hero is present (though not seen) in two important action sequences in Captain America: The Winter Soldier as the driver of a giant yellow Penske truck. The truck first shows up when Nick Fury is under fire. Fury is able to escape when the big yellow vehicle plows into his attackers. Later in the movie, the same yellow truck reemerges when Agent Sitwell is thrown into traffic, where he is hit by the moving rig at a very high speed. »

Firefly Fan Film - The Verse

15 September 2014 10:43 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

I think it's safe to say that Joss Whedon's Firefly series isn't going to come back anytime soon, if ever. Thanks to the fans, though, that universe will never die! Loot Crate has released a 15-minute short film called "The Verse" that is set in the world of Firefly, and it actually turned out really cool. 

The short features a new crew, a new Serenity inspired ship called the Overland, and, of course, a story that features a little bit of misbehavin’.

The dialogue and tone of the short feel very familiar, and I'm sure fans of the series are really going to enjoy what it has to offer, especially when it comes to the humor. Even though this is a different crew full of characters with different names, they are obviously based on the lovably awesome crew of the Serenity, and it works really well in this.

I hope you enjoy the show! »

20 Movies To Look Forward To In The Rest Of 2014

15 September 2014 4:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

2014 has overall been a pretty good year for movies, with some fantastic Oscar contenders (and winners) released back in January and February, not to mention a summer packed full of great blockbusters and superb low-budget Indie movies like Jon Favreau’s Chef and comedies such as The Inbetweeners 2.

Superhero movies have dominated though, with Captain America, the X-Men and the Guardians of the Galaxy all keeping fans and regular moviegoers alike happy. The next one won’t be released until 2015 with Joss Whedon’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, and there are still plenty of other big movies to look forward to in the rest of 2014.

Some are sequels and others are potentially the first instalment in a new franchise. Meanwhile, we also have plenty which could dominate come awards season, as well as more than enough movies which simply look like a fun time at the cinema as the »

Here's What's Going Down in The Avengers: Age Of Ultron

15 September 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | kidspickflicks | See recent kidspickflicks news »

Update: Marvel is now spilling the storyline of The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Here's the info they released today:

"When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth's Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure."

Marvel also describes Ultron as "a terrifying technological villain hell-bent on human extinction."

Writer-director Joss Whedon must have really loved this year's Godzilla reboot because two new characters, Wanda and Pietro Maximoff, are played by that movie's stars, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen
