Avengers: Age of Ultron is a pretty weird film (as discussed by one of my esteemed colleagues right here). There’s a genocidal robot, a genitalia-missing android powered by a magical stone, Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s Sakovian accent, Jeremy Renner’s hair which remains perfectly gelled even when he’s at war with a horde of robots, and a reference to Hulk’s member in a film funded by Disney.
The sequel to a little known art-house release, Age of Ultron sees everyone’s favourite team of characters – whose movie rights aren’t owned by Fox and Sony – reassemble once more because Tony Stark had the bright idea of powering a dormant, peace-keeping program with an alien stone and then got distracted and went on a schwarma run. Which results in the creation of the villainous A.I. Ultron, a robot with a voice so smooth that it makes silk feel like sandpaper. »

We’ve been asked to reconsider our enjoyment of Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron in the wake of the corporate shuffling that sees Kevin Feige reign supreme. Scuttlebutt has it the film was a disappointment to Walt Disney but one has to wonder how a global box office take of $1.4 billion (as of this weekend) can be a disappointment. Shot with a mammoth $250 million budget, the film needed to earn only about $800 million to be profitable (before licensing and ancillary revenue) so it has to be a financial success.
A critical success is something else. According to Rotten Tomatoes, it is 74% fresh although audiences liked it 86% of the time. Now yes, it is far lower than the 92% the first Avengers film did, but let’s face it, nothing like that had ever been tried on film and it worked beyond anyone’s expectations.
And the expectations were incredibly high »

We already know that director Joss Whedon has no plans for an Avengers: Age of Ultron director's cut. But when the Blu-ray drops in a couple of weeks, we will get to see some of the deleted scenes that didn't make it into the movie. Fans noticed that there were a lot of unanswered questions in Avengers: Age of Ultron when it arrived this past May, especially when it came to Thor and his quest in the movie. Now, we get to see a little bit more of his secondary story in a scene that shows the God of Thunder and Dr. Selvig entering Norn Cave.
Thor is being consumed by visions after having been 'touched' by Scarlet Witch. He goes into Norn cave looking for answers, with Selvig there to help document the experience, and assist if anything goes wrong. The doctor sees the mission as nothing but dangerous. »
When Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) jump-starts a dormant peacekeeping program, things go terribly awry, forcing him, Thor (Chris Hemsworth), the Incredible Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) and the rest of the Avengers to reassemble. As the fate of Earth hangs in the balance, the team is put to the ultimate test as they battle Ultron, a technological terror hell-bent on human extinction. Along the way, they encounter two mysterious and powerful newcomers, Pietro and Wanda Maximoff. Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Cobie Smulders, Don Cheadle, Paul Bettany, James Spader, and Samuel L. Jackson and hits DVD and Blu-ray next week. »
In just eight short days, Avengers: Age of Ultron will finally be released on Blu-ray and DVD, after its successful box office run this summer. The superhero sequel has taken in $458 million domestically and over $1.4 billion worldwide, making it one of the most lucrative movies this year. Joss Whedon already revealed that fans won't be getting a director's cut of Avengers: Age of Ultron on the Blu-ray and DVD, but today we have another sneak peek at the special features with a second gag reel, courtesy of JoBlo Movie Trailers.
This gag reel features stars Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Chris Hemsworth (Thor) and Chris Evans (Captain America) showing off their unique dance moves, while Chris Hemsworth's Thor delivers a unique insult to Iron Man, claiming that his girl Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) "smells like porridge." We also get a glimpse at an impromptu makeout session between Thor and »

When Collider spoke with Elizabeth Olsen during the Toronto International Film Festival, the actress had talked more about reprising her Avengers: Age of Ultron role as Wanda Maximoff aka Scarlet Witch in Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War, and potentially a standalone movie. “I was only there for five weeks of it, but we were all super stoked about it… Even though the Ultron robots are so intensely human because of its mind, we’re actually dealing with humans this time through and through," she said of Civil War. "There’s nothing scarier than something that’s like you being dangerous, so I think it’s darker and it’s fun. It’s really fun—it was so hard to shoot, but I think it’s gonna be a really interesting film." Given she and Aaron Taylor-Johnson made their Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in the Captain America: The Winter Soldier, »
When Avengers: Age Of Ultron was released earlier this year, the reception was far more muted than it had been for its 2012 predecessor, due to the simple reason that it isn’t as good. The question, then, is why isn’t it?
It quickly became apparent in the aftermath that the movie in theatres was not the fully-realised version of Joss Whedon’s vision (no android-related pun intended), and that there had been some real creative conflict, with Whedon himself talking about disagreements and unpleasantness.
Now the film has made its way onto Blu-Ray, and we can finally see some of scenes that ultimately didn’t make the final cut of the movie, on the say-so of either Whedon or the Marvel higher-ups. With the film already running well past the two-and-a-half hour mark the need to trim it down is understandable, but some of these really should’ve been included, »

Director: Joss Whedon
Special Features: Never-before-seen deleted scenes / Making-of featurettes / Gag reel / Audio commentary
How do you follow one of the biggest films of all time? This is definitely one of the biggest questions director Joss Whedon had to face following the worldwide success of The Avengers. Whedon replied by making a film that is bigger in every scale, but is Avengers: Age Of Ultron better than The Avengers?
Age Of Ultron follows Earth’s Mightiest Heroes reteaming to battle villainous AI Ultron, which is created by Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.). Ultron recruits the help of enhanced twins Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) who help Ultron to tear the Avengers apart, from the inside. The theme of being a monster is very relevant throughout the film, »

★★★★☆ There was a shot in Joss Whedon's box office behemoth Avengers Assemble (2012) which set fan's tongues a-wagging when it popped up in a trailer. The camera panned around the team of superheroes as they regrouped against an overwhelming alien hoard. If sequels are supposed to be bigger and better, then its lucky that the equivalent shot in Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) is not just superior, not just more impressive, but arguably the most spine-tingling visual interpretation of the comic book form ever committed to celluloid. Earth's Mightiest Heroes are back and it's with a right-hook that floors the competition. Chris Evans' Captain America would be oh-so proud.
With Warner Bros' DC Universe gearing up for its big push next year with Batman v Superman and Marvel's own the Fantastic Four back on screens in July, Whedon has delivered a film that outdoes his own previous offering and sets »

You probably know by now that Marvel's first Phase Three movie Captain America: Civil War is going to be a huge spectacle. Practically all of The Avengers, old and new, will be present, except for Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), along with a few new characters like Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) Baron Zemo (Daniel Brühl) and an unspecified character played by Martin Freeman. When Daniel Brühl was confirmed as Baron Zemo in April, most believed he was the main villain in Captain America: Civil War. But others believe that distinction goes to Crossbones. We now have confirmation from actress Elizabeth Olsen that Daniel Brühl is playing the big bad in this sequel. She revealed the news in an interview with Premiere.fr.
"Daniel Brühl is an incredible actor and he's playing the main villain in it. And he's incredible! It's a movie about people »

Jake Gyllenhaal is on a mission to stretch himself and his CV as wide as possible. This has been happening thanks to the likes of Zodiac, Source Code, and End Of Watch, but it was with Nightcrawler, which he followed up with Southpaw, Everest, and the forthcoming Demolition, that people stood up and took notice. And it turns out that his next project, Nocturnal Animals, is just as enticingly bizarre and different as you hoped. Plus it has a sterling cast. According to Variety, the people behind Nocturnal Animals are currently in talks with Isla Fisher (Hot Rod) to join the already stunning ensemble. Alongside Fisher and Gyllenhaal (Brokeback Mountain), the cast also features Michael Shannon (Man Of Steel), Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Nowhere Boy), Armie Hammer (The Lone Ranger), and Amy Adams (The Master). If that doesn’t get you excited for Nocturnal Animals, then the fact »
