Marvel Studios concept artist Phil Saunders has shared some of his alternate designs for both Ultron and the Hulkbuster armour in Avengers: Age of Ultron. As you can see, these are very different to what ended up on the big screen, but it would have been pretty hard to complain too much about any of these ultimately being used in the sequel. The Hulkbuster in particular looks a lot more similar to its comic book counterpart too which would have been cool. What do you think? Better or worse than the final versions? As always, let us know your thoughts in the usual place! 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 this year. »

Ridiculed before the release, and praised as the best thing about the film after it, Evan Peters' take on Quicksilver in "X-Men: Days of Future Past" certainly proved more memorable than Aaron Taylor-Johnson's take on the same character in "Avengers: Age of Ultron".
With the news not long ago that Peters will definitely be getting another chance to shine in the currently filming "X-Men: Apocalypse," the question is will the filmmakers be able to top that Pentagon prison escape from 'Days'? Speaking with MTV, Peters says he thinks they will:
"This year we're working on something that's bigger and better, keeping the same elements that worked, then adding a few new ones. I'm really excited to see it all cut together, and I'm excited for people to see it, too. I think it's going to be a really fun sequence in what is going to be a massive X-Men movie. »

Illustrator Andy Park has given us a peek at some of his early concept designs for the titular villain in Marvel’s blockbuster sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron, posting the following images to his Facebook page…
“These are some initial passes done for the big baddie, Ultron. What a crazy fun project to work on,” states Park. “I don’t get to do the more robotic designs that often here given our resident robot experts in Ryan Meinerding, Phil Saunders, along with Josh Nizzi and Josh Herman. But when I do get a chance I just savor the moment. Too much fun!”

Aaron Taylor-Johnson is really baring it all! He speaks candidly in Flaunt magazine, but the actor, who also happens to be married to Fifty Shades of Grey director Sam Taylor-Johnson, is also putting his body on display. Standing somewhere in the desert, Aaron lets it all hang out as he poses with low-cut pants and no shirt, all while he seemingly leading a group of three women. But he wasn't necessarily born a leader. In fact, the actor admits that growing up was a little bit rough until he discovered acting, a passion that has never died. "[Growing up] I thought I was stupid, wasn't clever enough," he explains to the magazine. "I had really low self esteem, but when I started »
Hearing wrong turned out to be oh so right! Donald Faison and CaCee Cobb named their precious baby girl Wilder — and now we know why! The Exes star revealed to Us Weekly that the parents were inspired by none other than Fifty Shades of Grey director Sam Taylor-Johnson and her husband, actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson. Faison, 40, told Us that a huge misunderstanding is actually what led to choosing the unique name. "I was in London shooting Kick-Ass 2 and [my costar] Aaron Taylor-Johnson and his wife, [...] »
Despite positive reviews and a decent box office take for 2010’s Kick-Ass, the once-burgeoning film franchise appears to be dead in the water following the 2013 sequel, which was met with far less praise and diminished box office returns. Original film director Matthew Vaughn has been keen on more follow-ups and even a prequel film following Chloe Grace-Moretz’s Hit-Girl and Nicolas Cage’s Big Daddy, but more tales about the hyper-violent street-level superheroes have hardly seemed likely, especially with film stars Grace-Moretz and Aaron Taylor-Johnson growing older and moving on to other film properties.
Still, Vaughn hasn’t quite let the possibility of Kick-Ass 3 or Hit-Girl go and recently brought them up in an interview with Yahoo UK:
We would like to dip our toe back into it… We’re working on an idea for a prequel of how did Hit Girl and Big Daddy become Hit Girl and Big Daddy. »

Make no mistake, writer/director Patrick Bryce’s The Overnight is one of the weirdest comedies I’ve seen in a while. It has a simple premise—a married couple (played by Adam Scott and Taylor Schilling) has recently moved to a new town and is looking for a playmate for their young son. They come across another couple (Jason Schwartzman and Judith Godrèche) who seem warm and inviting, but a simple dinner between the two families becomes much more awkward as the evening winds on. Trust me, the conversations and events that transpire are not the regular things you see in “Hollywood” movies and you will definitely be talking about the film after it ends. For more on The Overnight, watch the green or red band trailers. At the recent press day I asked Adam Scott, Taylor Schilling, Judith Godrèche, and Jason Schwartzman to play “Save or Kill”. If »

I’m a huge fan of Bill Hader. Not only can he do amazing impressions that make me laugh out loud, over the past few years he’s proven again and again that he’s an extremely talented actor that can handle drama and comedy with ease. In Pixar’s masterpiece Inside Out, which opens this weekend, Hader voices the character Fear and as you might expect, does a fantastic job. Trust me, Inside Out is a special movie that you want to see in a theater. At the press day for the film, I landed an exclusive video interview with Hader. In the coming days I’ll post the full conversation, but today I wanted to share him playing “Save or Kill.” If you haven’t seen it yet, the game reveals which franchises, characters or bands someone would choose when pitted against another of equal value.

The actor will revisit the role after making his scene-stealing debut in Days of Future Past last year.
Director Bryan Singer shared a behind-the-scenes picture of the Apocalypse set on Instagram, adding the caption: "Just another day at the office," alongside the hashtag "#Quicksilver".
Kodi Smit-McPhee (Nightcrawler), Ben Hardy (Angel), Tye Sheridan (Cyclops), Olivia Munn (Psylocke), Lana Condor (Jubilee) and Sophie Turner (Jean Grey will be making their first appearances in the X-Men franchise in Apocalypse.
X-Men: Apocalypse is scheduled for release on May 27, 2016.
Watch Quicksilver's introduction in X-Men: Days of Future Past »
In the battle of the two big screen Quicksilvers, we'd argue that the character came out better in Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days Of Future Past. Evan Peters wasn't in the film much, but he did make a huge impact when he appeared. In contrast, Aaron Taylor-Johnson's take on the character in Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age Of Ultron paled slightly (although still had its moments).
It hadn't been officially confirmed that Peters would be reprising the role of Quicksilver in next year's X-Men: Apocalypse, but it'd be safe to say that we'd all pretty much assumed that he would (and it had all been revealed anyway). If there was any doubt left, then the latest snap from the set taken by Singer should eradicate it.

Having beaten out Frozen and Iron Man 3 to become the sixth highest grossing film of all-time, Avengers: Age of Ultron has now beaten Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 to take the fifth spot.
The movie added another $6 million domestically over the weekend to bring its total up to $1.3 billion worldwide. That puts it in fifth place behind fellow 2015 release Furious 7 ($1.5 billion), Marvel’s The Avengers ($1.5 billion), Titanic ($2.1 billion) and Avatar ($2.7 billion). It seems unlikely now that Avengers: Age of Ultron will catch up with Furious 7 or its predecessor, but being the fifth biggest movie of all-time is hardly something to complain about.
Avengers: Age of Ultron is out now and sees Joss Whedon directing a cast that includes Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Chris Evans (Captain America), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Mark Ruffalo (The Incredible Hulk), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Don Cheadle (War »

“And I want some ‘ha ha ha’s here…”
For our June edition, The Flickering Myth Movie Show decided to visit London McM Comic Con. Because we can. And we’re slightly (ok, very) obsessed with Willa Holland (Thea Queen from Arrow).
Not only did we get a chance to talk to her…we also chased down Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Iain de Caestecker (Leo Fitz) and Nick Blood (Lance Hunter), the director and producer duo of The Death of Superman Lives! What Happened? Jon Schnepp and Holly Payne and super YouTuber Tomska.
But Wait – There’S More!
Like, ‘Faust from ItsSuperEffective’ more, talking comic books, Captain America: Civil War and hipster Joker from Suicide Squad; ‘James Tarpey from Robot Overlords‘ more, picking his movies of the month (there’s lots of Jurassic World chat) and working with Gillian Anderson; and, finally, ‘MusicalBethan’ more, doing that cup thing from Pitch Perfect. »

Now playing in theaters is director Paul Feig’s Spy. As I’ve said many times, I think Spy is a great and extremely funny movie that’s definitely worth your time and money. The potential franchise-starter features Melissa McCarthy as Susan Cooper, a CIA analyst who goes into the field for the very first time after her partner (Jude Law) falls off the grid. Loaded with an all-star cast (Jason Statham, Rose Byrne, Miranda Hart, Bobby Cannavale, Allison Janney, Peter Serafinowicz, and Morena Baccarin), one of the main reasons Spy is so great is that each supporting character has a moment to shine, and Statham completely knocks it out of the park in his first big studio comedy. For more on Spy, read Perri’s review or watch the trailers. At the L.A. press day I played an abbreviated version of “Save or Kill” with Paul Feig, Rose Byrne, »

I don’t always cover a lot of female toys, but that is something I hope to remedy in the near future. Why, you ask, the lack of female representation? Well, honestly, it’s not for any particular reason. Maybe because I’m a guy, so I tend to lean more towards characters I can relate to; or maybe it’s simply the overwhelming lack of female action figures out there. When it comes to women in the Marvel cinematic universe, there is definitely a lack of said female representation. Other than Black Widow, there are very few core female characters molded into action figure greatness. Unlike the quadrillion—yes, quadrillion—Iron Man armors and various versions of Mr. Tony Stark. To be honest, every figure lately to come from Marvel just seems like overkill and no thank you. Do Hot Toys and various other companies make some pretty spectacular figures from these films? »

Dan Lin, Roy Lee and Doug Davidson sued Legendary and its president Jon Jashni in early 2013 over the production company taking them off “Godzilla,” accusing Legendary of trying to avoid paying the producers millions of dollars. The suit was filed after Legendary sought a declaratory judgment that the three producers had no claim over the project.
Terms of the settlement in Los Angeles Superior Court were not immediately disclosed.
Legendary said in its court filings that the trio’s efforts consisted only of introducing a screenwriter and providing contributing notes that were not used. Legendary asserted that the compensation for all three under the agreement was limited to a $25,000 development fee.
Lin, Lee and Davidson said in their counterclaim that the three »

With Max Landis’ directorial debut Me Him Her world premiering this Friday night at the Seattle International Film Festival, I recently had the opportunity to sit down with the busy screenwriter for an extended video interview. If you’re not familiar with Me Him Her, the dramedy is about three millennials trying to figure out love, friendship, sex, identity, and life in present day Hollywood. The film stars Dustin Milligan, Luke Bracey, Emily Meade, Alia Shawkat, Rebecca Drysdale, and Haley Joel Osment. Over the next few days I’ll be posting a few different parts from my extended interview with Landis, but today I’ve got him playing “Save or Kill”. If you haven’t seen it yet, the game reveals which franchises, characters or bands someone would choose when pitted against another of equal value.
