Joss Whedon interested in directing a DC movie

7 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We know that Joss Whedon has decided to call time on his Marvel exploits with Avengers: Age of Ultron, having decided to hand over the reins on the Avengers franchise to Captain America: The Winter Soldier directors Anthony and Joe Russo for Avengers: Infinity War, but it seems he still has ambitions in the superhero genre, with the filmmaker telling IGN that he’d like to take a crack at a DC movie.

“I’d be like ‘I have all these joke ideas.’ And they’d be like ‘No, we don’t do that here.’ I desperately wanted to do a Batman film – who doesn’t? And I wanted to do Wonder Woman. I was a Marvel kid growing up, but I was always DC-curious. And I see myself on the spectrum in between.”

Whedon did spend several years developing a Wonder Woman movie for Warner Bros. [you can take a look at the 2005 Comic-Con poster here], and he was »

Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron review

25 April 2015 3:31 PM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

Because of the anticipation surrounding this film, this review will endeavour to avoid any major specific plot spoilers, instead talking in general terms and about things that have already been revealed in trailers and interviews and so on. However, if you still want to know absolutely as little as possible about the film beforehand, then: a) go see it, it's awesome, and b) there is a scene shortly into the end credits. In any case, consider this article more a quick first reaction than an in-depth thematic analysis.

Writer-director Joss Whedon's The Avengers (or Avengers Assemble, in the UK) was a smash-hit back in 2012 for Marvel. His return to the franchise (which will also be his Avengers swansong), Avengers: Age of Ultron, is a darker, more emotionally resonant sequel (as with The Empire Strikes Back or How to Train Your Dragon 2), while still delivering spectacular superheroic action and an abundance of laugh-out-loud humour. »

Avengers: Age of Ultron Blu-ray to include extended edition and alternate ending

25 April 2015 10:22 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It only just opened in the UK this past Thursday – and is yet to even hit screens in the States – but Amazon is already offering us the chance to pre-order Avengers: Age of Ultron on Blu-ray, and if its product description is any indication, the home entertainment release will include an extended version of the movie, as well as an alternate ending…

Joss Whedon’s original cut of the movie ran for some three hours in length, but just last week the filmmaker warned us not to expect a Director’s Cut of the movie, although he did promise plenty of deleted scenes on the Blu-ray and DVD release. So, this news is certainly surprising, and we should probably wait until we hear something from Marvel before taking this as gospel…

Aaron Taylor-Johnson Says Avengers: Age of Ultron Cast Is Like ''Family,'' But Did He Endure ''Initiation Tests''?

25 April 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Joining one of the most popular film franchises in the world must be daunting. Indeed, for Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who plays Pietro Maximoff/Quicksilver in Marvel Studios' Avengers: Age of Ultron, it was "super surreal and overwhelming...but it's been great." "Stepping on set with these guys, it feels like a real family," he told E! News' Alicia Quarles during an exclusive set visit in London last year. "A bunch of them already, it's like their fifth movie." The sequel brings back the star-studded cast, including Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, »

Second Opinion – Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)

25 April 2015 4:12 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Avengers: Age of Ultron, 2015.

Written and directed by Joss Whedon.

Starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, Samuel L. Jackson, Paul Bettany, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, James Spader, Thomas Kretschmann, Cobie Smulders, Claudia Kim, Andy Serkis, Don Cheadle, Stellan Skarsgård, Idris Elba, Hayley Atwell and Linda Cardellini.

Synopsis:

When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and it is up to the Avengers to stop the villainous Ultron from enacting his terrible plans.

I looked back at my review of The Avengers from 2012 and the opening paragraph struck me as one which I’d never consider writing now;

“Firstly, I love films based on comic book characters and I enjoy many summer blockbusters, so I cannot complain that I wasn’t part of The Avengers’ target audience. Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2, Batman, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, X-2, X-Men: First Class, »

Joss Whedon talks Spider-Man, Agent Coulson, Planet Hulk, Marvel vs DC, and Batman

24 April 2015 10:08 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Avengers: Age of Ultron opening in the UK yesterday [read our review here] ahead of its Stateside release next Friday, Joss Whedon has been out and about on the press rounds for the film, during which he fielded a host of questions on all things Marvel Cinematic Universe, including the upcoming debut of Spider-Man, whether Agent Coulson is alive in the big screen side of the McU, if a Planet Hulk movie could work, and the competition between Marvel and DC.

On Spider-Man (via Yahoo! Movies): “[I’d like to have worked on Spider-Man], he’s the poster child. He’s the first book I read, and I think that’s true for a lot of people. There are so many things I would want to do, even with [The Avengers], even with just one of these characters. But the fact of the matter is: they’re doing fine, and I’ve probably got to move on. I think it’s great »

Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” begins to roll out worldwide

23 April 2015 2:54 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

All this week, we’ve seen Marvel slowly begin to allow reviews to trickle out about Avengers: Age of Ultron, in advance of the global release this weekend, followed by the U.S. next week. So far, the early word has been pretty solid, with some out and out raves and almost no outright detractors. After how big a smash across the board The Avengers was, seeing the sequel apparently continue the trend is a solid sight to behold. Marvel continues their perfect record and comic book fans get another top tier piece of entertainment to enjoy. The summer movie season is about to begin folks… You’d basically have to live under a rock not to be fully aware what this film is about, but at the off chance you don’t, I’m more than willing to provide a quick primer.

Chris Evans and Jeremy Renner apologise for calling Black Widow a “slut” and “whore”

23 April 2015 12:23 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During the press tour for Avengers: Age of Ultron (read our spoiler free review here), Chris Evans and Jeremy Renner were asked by IGN about Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow and relationship status with Hulk in the movie. The question was asked due to the first movie hinting a relationship with Hawkeye and flirtatious teasing between her and Steve Rogers in Captain America: Civil War. Their response was… ill advised.

“She’s a slut”, Renner says flatly, causing Evans to burst into laughter and call her a “complete whore”.

“She’ll just flirt with anyone”, Evans adds.

While it is clear the two are joking, the comments are terribly judged – particularly when Avengers: Age of Ultron is under the firing line once again for not featuring Black Widow on much of its merchandise.

In a statement with EW Evans apologised for his comments saying, “yesterday we were asked about the »

Aaron Taylor-Johnson: ‘Changing my name felt beautiful’

23 April 2015 9:13 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The smouldering star of Avengers: Age of Ultron explains why, when he and his wife Sam Taylor-Johnson only take on one project a year, he opted for another action blockbuster role. And no, it wasn’t all about the money

The first thing I notice when I meet Aaron Taylor-Johnson is his beard. Glossy, thick and caviar-coloured, it seems to precede him by several seconds. The term “face-furniture” would be underselling this bad boy; it’s more like a three-piece suite. I compliment him on it – the lustre, the density. He looks pleased to have it acknowledged. His blue eyes sparkle. Then he says something strange: “It’s real.” I hadn’t thought that it wasn’t. I mumble something about believing him. But now he has made me suspicious.

We chew the fat, or rather the fur. He has noticed a lot of face fuzz in Los Angeles, where he lives with his wife, »
