In light of Quicksilver's appearance in X-Men: Days of Future Past last year, as well as the ongoing television series based on DC Comics' own Scarlet Speedster, The Flash, Marvel Studios' Kevin Feige and Avengers: Age of Ultron writer-director Joss Whedon set out to make their portrayal of Pietro Maximoff very distinctive. However, actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson says he initially struggled with how his character would look while running. Apparently, the filming process originally involved Taylor-Johnson sprinting on a treadmill in front of green screen, but “There was no real life to it,” he told BuzzFeed on-set last year. “It looked really dull,” he added, so the Marvel production decided to just film the running sequences outdoors. “The more dynamic or the messier my arms were or the wider my legs were, [and] the more I changed up the wave and the rhythm of the running, the better,” he said. »
As if the return of Marvel’s Agents Of Shield wasn’t enough for us, those kind people at Marvel Studios have also ramped up the excitement for upcoming Avengers: Age Of Ultron with some new clips and interviews.
Giving an introduction to two of the latest additions to Marvel’s cinematic universe, this minute-long TV spot focuses on troubled twins Pietro (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen), or Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch as they’re better known.
Showcasing the pairs’ impressive talents and highlighting their tragic backstory, the featurette doesn’t give too much away (despite hinting at possible narrative points) but serves as a solid introduction to two of Marvel’s longest serving characters.

While BuzzFeed was among the folks who visited the set of Avengers: Age of Ultron last year, the media site talked very recently with Joss Whedon, who confirmed to them amid post-production that the sequel runs 142 minutes; a full minute shorter than The Avengers. The director also talked in-depth about the newcomers Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver, and ultimately what stars Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson bring to the characters as well as to the highly-anticipated film. “They don’t like America, and they don’t like the Avengers,” said Whedon of the Twins, who he says volunteer for their superpowered fate essentially because of their hatred of Earth's Mightiest Heroes (especially Iron Man). “We only touch on it briefly — there was more. When the movie was an hour longer, everything got explained a lot. The Avengers are like a world power, and not everybody’s on board with the Avengers coming »
Having been away from directing since 2009’s acclaimed A Single Man, fashion designer turned director Tom Ford is preparing his return to the director’s chair, with more of Hollywood’s A-list circling his new project.
According to various sources, Amy Adams (American Hustle) and Jake Gyllenhaal (Nightcrawler) have been linked with the film. In addition, insiders have suggested that Joaquin Phoenix (Inherent Vice) and Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Avengers: Age of Ultron) are also being sought after for leading roles.
The film in question is an adaptation of Austin Wright’s book titled Tony and Susan. Initially published in 1993 and tells of a woman named Susan who receives a book manuscript from her ex-husband, a man whom she left 20 years earlier, asking for her opinion. The book then tracks two stories: the story in the novel, titled Nocturnal Animals, which tells of a man whose family vacation turns violent and deadly; and the story of Susan, »

While it's speculated that Avengers: Age of Ultron will open with an attack on Baron von Strucker's castle, as the team liberates future members Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, there is still much we don't know about this raid, aside from some of the snowy images we've seen with Bruce Banner and Hawkeye tromping through the very cold Sokovian forest. Now, we have a couple of images from this action-packed set piece from the sequel. And it reveals not only a Hyrda tank but also Strucker's Hyrda army.
These images are from a kids' picture book, and they piece together events from early on in the movie. We see Chris Hemsworth smiling as Thor, ready for battle. Next, we see a tank as it patrols the Sokovian countryside, protecting a base that is more secure than any The Avengers have ever faced before. The place is surrounded by heavy security. We »

With Avengers: Age of Ultron less than a month away from its UK release, we should expect to hear plenty of comments from the cast of the hotly-anticipated Marvel sequel as its arrival edges ever closer. Times of India has been speaking to Robert Downey Jr. about the film, during with he offered up a few words on Tony Stark’s character leading into the sequel.
“With the first film, The Avengers, Tony was becoming a team player and with Iron Man 3, it was him transcending his dependency on the tech that’s keeping him alive. So I thought, ‘Ok, now what?’ But there’s all this unfinished business. There’s the matter of a certain wormhole that opened over New York and the imminent threat that still implies, so Tony has turned his attentions more toward a bit of a post-Reagan-era, Star-Wars-type notion and he likes to call it Ultron. »

We’ve seen glimpses of Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) in action in the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailers, but Marvel UK just unveiled a brand new featurette called “Super Siblings” that gives us a far more in-depth look at the characters, especially Scarlet Witch.

Earlier in the week it was reported by 'Bum Juice' scoop extraordinaire El Mayimbe at Latino Review that Carol Danvers had been cast for the Marvel Phase Three adventure Captain Marvel, and would be making her debut appearance in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Fuel was added to the fire when toy photos from the movie appeared online that included Captain Marvel in the line-up. While this rumor has been lingering around for awhile, Nerdist now calls it completely false, saying the character is not going to appear on the big screen this summer:
"A source close to production confirms that Captain Marvel will not appear in Avengers 2."
It is not known, however, if the first part of Latino Review's scoop is correct. Did Marvel already cast the role of Carol Danvers? If that is true, we haven't heard whom landed this coveted part in Marvel's Phase Three line-up just yet. »
Marvel's latest in-depth teaser hints that a key plot point of the sequel will involve Scarlet Witch using her powers to meddle with the minds of the Avengers.

Don’t you hate that each year Awards Season seems to creep ever earlier in the calendar year? God! Can’t you just go one film festival without speculating whether it will be an Oscar contender, or whether it has the legs to survive such an increasingly long awards season? Geez, I can’t imagine why so many Sundance movies struggle to make a lasting impact over a year later when conversations beating it into the ground start this early!
What movie are we talking about again? Furious 7? Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha ah ah ha.
Wait, really? And you’re telling me it’s over? Pack it up, we’re going home? The race is completely in the bag? This Best Picture race was done before it started? It would be like if Meryl Streep starred as Jesus and was wrongly trapped as a slave for 12 years? Except it’s Furious 7 »
