We all know that Robert Downey Jr. earns an obscene amount of money for his appearances as Tony Stark in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but how does Iron Man’s pay cheque stack up next to the rest of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes? Well, thanks to Celebrity Glory, we know exactly how much the six original Avengers received for this year’s blockbuster sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron…
Robert Downey Jr. – $40 million
Scarlett Johansson – $20 million
Chris Evans – $6.8 million
Jeremy Renner – $6.1 million
Chris Hemsworth – $5.4 million
Mark Ruffalo – $2.8 million
When you look at those figures, it’s no wonder the two-part Avengers: Infinity War is looking at a $1 billion budget.

When Fox's X-Men: Days of Future Past hit the big screen last year, Quicksilver, the mutant with a penchant for traveling at superhuman speeds, notably became the film's breakout character. Director Bryan Singer clearly did the necessary homework, as Evan Peters (not to be confused with Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who plays Quicksilver in Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron) told Deadline in a recent interview that not only will his character be back in X-Men: Apocalypse, he'll be back in a much more significant way. "It’s the biggest X-Men film. It’s about the apocalypse, so the scope of the film is huge," he said. "The story is that my character is searching for his father and wants to find him. It starts there and then he jumps on the X-Men train and gets sucked up in this whole Apocalypse madness: He tries to stop him from destroying the world." That »

X-Men: Apocalypse is going to be jam-packed with Mutants both old and new. But it looks like one particular fan favorite introduced in last year's X-Men: Days of Future Past is going to get some special attention. Evan Peters, who plays Quicksilver in both franchise sequels, has revealed that some of the story will focus on the relationship between the super-fast speedster and his biological dad.
Magneto and Quicksilver were among two of the most popular characters making a scene in X-Men: Days of Future Past. But it was only ever hinted at that Magneto is a father. When the two meet back up in next summer's X-Men: Apocalypse, their destinies will be directly connected. Speaking with Details, Evan Peters had this to say about his part in the adventure.
"The story is that my character is searching for his father and wants to find him. It starts there and »
When it was revealed that Quicksilver was going to show up in X-Men: Days of Future Past, the majority of comic book fans assumed that Fox had only thrown the character in as a way of spiting Marvel Studios (who had at that time already cast Aaron Taylor-Johnson in the role for Avengers: Age of Ultron), but it’s fair to say that everyone was shocked when Evan Peters’ version ended up stealing the show.
His Quicksilver is set to take on an even more significant role in the sequel, and the actor had this to say about what a huge movie X-Men: Apocalypse actually is during a recent interview:
“It’s the biggest X-Men film. It’s about the apocalypse, so the scope of the film is huge.”
That sounds great, but isn’t anything we don’t already know. Well, here’s where things get really interesting. Peters »

Reading about the life of its protagonist, Tony Hastings, Susan is forced to confront… »
It is a truth universally acknowledged that, while streaming services make it incredibly easy to see movies and television shows, they also make it impossibly difficult to watch one. There are thousands upon thousands of titles available at your fingertips (and more being added every month), but the sheer number of things to choose from is so paralyzing that every night inevitably ends the same way: with that episode of Friends where Ross' loses his monkey.
Fortunately for you, Rolling Stone is here to help. Every month, we sift through »
CinemaSins tackles one of the year’s biggest films, Avengers: Age of Ultron, in their brand new Everything Wrong With video. Watch the immensely popular YouTube channel tear apart the mega-blockbuster over the course of nearly 18 minutes down below…
Despite Avengers: Age of Ultron receiving mostly positive reviews from both critics and fans, many still couldn’t help but feel let down upon leaving the theater after watching the film. While by no means a bad film, the general consensus said that the second outing in the Avengers series simply couldn’t top the first or quite live up to expectations. However, that didn’t stop Age of Ultron from raking in a whopping $1.4 billion worldwide, which made it the fourth highest-grossing film of all time.

After earning critical and fan adoration for his turn as the meth-dealing Walter White on AMC’s “Breaking Bad,” Cranston told U.K. outlet Metro that he harbors a desire to play a supervillain.
“You know what I’d like to do? I’d like to do some big superhero villain in some Marvel classic,” Cranston told Metro while promoting “Trumbo,” in which he stars as a blacklisted screenwriter.
Cranston doesn’t want to play an existing comic-book baddie, though — he wants to “create one from scratch.”
“I don’t know what I would do, but it would be nasty,” Cranston said of the villain he would invent.
Based on Marvel’s packed film and TV slates, Cranston should have plenty of opportunities to get in the superhero game. The studio recently announced new release »

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. »

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."
