Badass Digest reveals that, at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America (Chris Evans) will assemble a brand new team of Avengers for Phase Three. While the site wouldn't reveal who this new team will include, one name that has been in every version of the script is Carol Danvers, a.k.a. Captain Marvel. However, now Marvel is "having cold feet" about bringing Captain Marvel into the Marvel Cinematic Universe this way.
The exact lineup of the new Avengers has not been finalized, and this scene was not shot during principal photography, which wrapped earlier this month. Marvel reportedly may pull Captain Marvel from this new lineup because they aren't sure if »
"No, I don't die. I think they want to keep me around for a while."
There has been a fan theory circulating for quite some time that Hawkeye may meet his maker in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Hawkeye and Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow are the only two Avengers who don't have their own stand-alone movie yet, but that could change in the near future, since Marvel plans on keeping him around.
This comes just a few days after the actor hinted his character may surface in the Marvel Phase Three adventure Captain »
This seemed like a foregone conclusion, didn't it? We've heard from multiple scoopers that Captain Marvel, aka Carol Danvers, aka Ms. Marvel, would appear in Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age of Ultron. It was never confirmed, but in July it seemed to have more credence when Joss Whedon declared there were "four prominent female roles" in his upcoming comic book movie. Though, in the past every time Captain Marvel has been mentioned as being apart the film it is stressed that the part is just a cameo. Now, sources for Devin Faraci of Badass Digest are reporting that Marvel Studios is second guessing that Captain Marvel cameo. McU update: sources tell me Marvel is getting cold feet about Captain Marvel in Age Of Ultron. They're not sure they want to intro her cold. — Devin Faraci (@devincf) August 28, 2014 It's important to note that Captain Marvel is written as a Cameo in Ultron. »
Now that Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy have made 2014 the best year yet for Marvel, all eyes are on Avengers: Age of Ultron director Joss Whedon to follow suit and bring an exciting end to Phase Two of the McU.
He promises to do that with the biggest Marvel film yet, featuring the familiar roster of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes as well as some new faces like Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen as “The Twins,” Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, respectively.
In a new interview with Empire, Whedon talks a bit about how Age of Ultron differs from its bar-raising 2012 predecessor, saying:
“It’s more epic and in other ways it’s more noirish and suspect and devious and specific. Ultron, he’s got a touch of the apocalypse in him.”
The inclusion of Ultron in the Avengers sequel came as a bit of a surprise for fans, »

Robert Downey, Jr. admitted some hard truths this week in Toronto.
Despite having a very obvious loyalty to the Avengers – if you’re living under a rock: he’s Tony Stark in JonFavreau’s Iron Man and its sequels – the actor admitted that James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy, the sci-fi opera with “a bunch of a-holes” is the best Marvel movie: “[Guardians of the] Galaxy in some ways is the best Marvel movie ever - and it’s odd for someone with, on occasion, an ego the size of mine to actually say that!”
“We’re talking about how the Iron Mans and the Thors and the Captain Americas and the Avengers movies have afforded Marvel the opportunity to essentially take what was a third-tier, minor, kind of upstart bit of potential from one of their comic books series and say: ‘Look!’” said Downey, Jr.

If these stills from Avengers: Age of Ultron look familiar, it’s because we’ve posted them before. However, these images released by Empire are higher resolution and lack those ugly watermarks. We most recently posted a magazine scan of the above photo with Jeremy Renner as London Fog Hawkeye being directed by Joss Whedon. Yeah, I agree that his and a lot of the other characters’ costumes look kind of silly out of context, but just wait for the trailer. Having seen the footage they screened at Comic-Con (read description here), I can tell you that those costumes meld into the bigger and darker world that Whedon is painting. The photo of Aaron Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen is an ultra high-res image that you can use if you want to make Euro-trash Quicksilver and rheumatoid arthritis Scarlet Witch your desktop. See? I still can’t stop making fun of »

We’ve rounded up several new stills from some of our most-anticipated movies, heading to theatres in the near future.
A new image from Benedict Cumberbatch’s The Imitation Game has been released, featuring the actor in a production still from the film. Scheduled to hit Tiff next week, the film, directed by Morten Tyldum (Headhunters), is a war-time biography on Alan Turing, the man who led the efforts to crack the Nazi's Enigma code during WWII.
We’re also getting a look at a new image of Meryl Streep in Rob Marshall’s Into the Woods which opens in theatres on December 25th. Streep is plays The Witch (because who really needs a first name when you’re a witch?) who conspires to teach fairytale characters like Cinderella and Jack the Beanstalk a lesson in the musical fantasy.
And last but not least we have Three new images from The Avengers: Age of Ultron. »

Jeremy Renner recently appeared in an episode of Larry King Now, and the follwing clip has been released of him discussing his role as Hawkeye in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It kicks off with some talk about how he landed the part, as well as what's in store for Clint Barton after Avengers: Age of Ultron ("No man, I don’t die. They are going to keep me around for a while."). Of course, thanks to the recent reveal that he may be turning up in Captain America 3, that's no great surprise! Oh, and before you go getting too hysterical about that "We're not doing Shakespeare" comment, pay close attention to what Renner then says about how a movie like The Avengers differs to more serious projects and why the role of Hawkeye still involves giving it his 100%. Be sure to check out a new image of the character in »

Welcome To Issue 60!
If This Is Your First Time Here: Welcome! This is my weekly column where I talk about superhero movie news, rumors and speculation to the detriment of no one. It usually has spoilers. Also it has jokes, sorry Warner Bros.
This Week: Donald Glover finally gets to be Spider-Man, then I don’t know who at DC to talk to about setting “no joke” policies. But I want to make two things clear right from the start: I want the Dcu to succeed because I want to see these movies, and I’m easily excitable when it comes to these things.
Thanks for being so patient while I uprooted my Brooklyn life of 11 years and hauled all my crap back to Colorado last week. There’s something about paying to ship all your Spider-Man toys to another state while you’re throwing away baby pictures of yourself »
Marvel Studios has firmly established itself as one of the biggest - if not the biggest - brands in Hollywood. After six years of releasing movies, the company has not only made two of the highest grossing films of all time - Joss Whedon's The Avengers and Shane Black's Iron Man 3 - but also has proven able to take a property that nobody has ever heard of and turn it into gold. Guardians of the Galaxy had more than its fair share of detractors when it was first announced at San Diego Comic-Con 2011, but now that particular project has made more than half a billion dollars at the global box office and can be called the biggest hit domestically of the summer season. The numbers are in, and at the time of this article's publication, Box Office Mojo says that James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy »
Empire Magazine has released high quality version of two of the previously released photos from Joss Whedon's "Avengers: Age Of Ultron". The first showing Whedon and actor Jeremy Renner on the set, the second a shot of Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark And Mark Ruffalo's Bruce Banner.
Next comes new shots of the huggable robot Baymax in the Disney/Marvel animated feature "Big Hero 6," followed by a first look at Riley - the 11-year-old girl at the center of Pixar's "Inside Out". That film deals with the clashing personalities of the colorful emotions that populate her mind.
Finally there's a new shot of Meryl Streep in the film adaptation of the Sondheim musical "Into the Woods," a new shot of Benedict Cumberbatch in "The Imitation Game," a first look at Nicole Kidman in "Paddington," and a photo of Jennifer Lawrence in David O. Russell's period »

Empire has released the above new picture from behind-the-scenes of Avengers: Age of Ultron featuring Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye and director Joss Whedon showing him how to properly shoot his bow. Meanwhile, Renner recently spoke with Collider and gave hints we may be seeing more of Hawkeye sooner rather than later. "There are rumblings of Captain America 3," he said. "I don't know what's going to happen there. I've got to find the time, man. Laughs I'm trying to stay home and I can't." At the same time, Captain America 3 co-director Joe Russo talked about what other Avengers may be showing up in the new film similar to Black Widow's (Scarlett Johansson) role in Captain America: The Winter Soldier saying they've already got someone set... could it be Hawkeyec "That's such a hard question because we've kind of already done that. Do they have to be under contract »

The October issue of Empire hits shelves on Thursday, and among its many joys is a look ahead to Avengers: Age Of Ultron, with an exclusive new image below, showing Joss Whedon directing Hawkeye. As if that weren't enough, both Marvel boss Kevin Feige and director Joss Whedon share a little bit more of their nefarious plans for the superhero super-team this time around. Check out both below."It's more epic and in other ways it's more noirish and suspect and devious and specific," said Whedon of his film. "Ultron, he's got a touch of the apocalypse in him." Adds Feige, "Ultron was the villain Joss wanted, from midway through production on the first film, to have serious repercussions for The Avengers."And then there are those intriguing glimpses, in concept art and Comic-Con footage, of a certain souped-up Iron Man suit called the Hulkbuster, and a conflict between Robert Downey Jr. »
First Things First: at Movie City News the "Gurus of Gold" have begun (yes, I'm a part of it again) and as David Poland points out there are seven films that made almost every list: Birdman, Gone Girl, Boyhood, and Unbroken tied at 1st place with Foxcatcher, Selma, and Interstellar just behind them. Most pundits are feeling these as Best Picture threats. Look at the whole chart though to see how everything fared. The highest ranking films that were not on my list (we were asked to submit 15 films) are Wild and Inherent Vice.
Early rave reviews at the Venice Film Festival from The Telegraph, Variety and THR and a couple positive but not ecstatic reviews from The Guardian and The Film Stage are up and surely bode well for the film. I'm holding off on reading them as I want the movie fresh when I see it. »

Back in July, it was revealed that Lucy Lawless ("Xena," "Spartacus") had joined the cast of Marvel's "Agents of Shield" TV series. And now, the studio has unveiled our first look at Lawless on the show.

"Agents of Shield" is produced by Joss Whedon (director of "The Avengers") and will return to television for its second season on September 23rd. Meanwhile, the first season will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on September 9th. Photo: (click to enlarge) »
We may be in the golden age of superhero cinema, but here are some DC movies that never made it…
Naysayers would have you believe that Hollywood chucks bucket-loads of cash at any old comic book movie pitch that happens to float through their corner-office window, get stuck to their shoe or come to them miraculously as an on-the-toilet epiphany.
However, this is not the case, particularly with DC comics characters. While some films that do get made may seem like bog-fodder (oh hey, Green Lantern), there are plenty of comic adaptation pitches, in-development scripts and passion projects that have ended up not getting made for various reasons.
We had a rummage through the aeons of DC cinema history (also known as extensive Googling) and pulled together all the comic book movie projects we could find that ended up in the bin of crushed dreams for Batman, Superman and more. »
According to a new report from Comicbookmovie.com, "Avengers 2: Age Of Ultron" movie director, Joss Whedon and producer Kevin Feige, delivered a couple of new spoiler teasers for the film at the recent Comic-Con 2014 event in San Diego,CA. In this particular segment, they talked about the Hulkbuster suit. Apparently, it's a backup suit in case things go awry, and more. Kevin told them that the Hulkbuster suit is a "bespoke suit. The back-up plan in case things go awry." Then Joss chimed in to say: "The Hulkbuster is from after my time as a reader, but even I knew what a big deal it was. It makes sense because there's no one who can really go up against Hulk, but more importantly, those guys are best friends, so what that battle is and what it means is fascinating to me."

I remember, a long long time ago, when the average person had no idea who Joss Whedon was. I would launch into my Buffy/Firefly/Angel (well, 1st season of Angel) fangirl mode only to receive a “who” when I would list Whedon as one of my two favourite screenwriters (Preston Sturges is the other). But those […]
