Imagine if love was easy, we’d have less rom-coms for a start. These comedies that look at the complications of love tend to make themselves out to be the only movie that does the re-tread tale in this certain way, the truth being most follow a similar structure (because it works). The success of the film relies on making the audience care for the characters and charming the hopeless romantic in them into submission. The question is can Chris “Captain America” Evans charm you by Playing it Cool? The answer is probably yes.
Chris Evans plays a screenwriter given the task of writing a script for a rom-com. Being the jaded type he »

Ever since Jeremy Renner first picked up the bow in his fleeting cameo in Thor, there has been speculation and rumour of Hawkeye getting his own solo movie. But along with Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow and Mark Ruffalo’s Incredible Hulk, are were no plans in place for any solo-outings in Phase Three – which means there would be no solo movies as of right now before 2019.
For Renner though, it’s all about focusing on Avengers: Age of Ultron.
“Those things are in the future,” Renner told Yahoo! Movies. “[Avengers: Age of Ultron] has still got to do well for there to be an Avengers 3. No one is counting that egg.”
“We just make the best movie we can now, and if Avengers 3 rolls around, and people want to see that, then that happens,” he continues. “If there’s anything else that happens, that’s not really for any one person to determine. »

It’s excitement overload for Avengers fans everywhere – and no, we are not complaining!
While we have to wait until May 1 to see Earth's Mightiest Heroes re-assemble on the big screen, Marvel is making sure fans are plenty occupied with Avengers goodies until the day it hits theaters.
First, Marvel released the official Avengers: Age of Ultron poster, giving us a glimpse of the entire team, and confirming the long-standing rumor that Anthony Mackie will reprise his role as Falcon in the film.
Then, character posters began trickling out one by one. Robert Downey Jr. led the pack on Feb. 25, teasing a "big announcement" to come in eight days – we're crossing our fingers for a new trailer.

As with all character posters this isn't much to look at, but just below you have the character poster for Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye from Avengers: Age of Ultron, which the actor's publicity team revealed on Renner's WhoSay page this morning. One thing more interesting than the poster, however, is an interview The Playlist noticed from The Daily Beast in which Renner acknowledges the fact he's signed on for a solo film should the studio want to make one, "I think most actors will sign on to do, like... Captain America 1-3 and then The Avengers 1-3, and then you're done. For me, I signed on to The Avengers 1-3 and then Hawkeye, in case they want to do a Hawkeye spin-off." I don't expect it to happen, but I guess anything is possible. Renner does say he and Hulk both have larger roles in the upcoming Age of Ultron saying, »

Playing It Cool, 2015
Directed by Justin Reardon
Unrequited love motivates a guy to write about his experiences.
First time director Justin Reardon clearly has a lot of friends in high places. Along with first time writers Chris Shafter and Paul Vicknair, they have managed to amass a cast that includes Captain America: The Winter Soldier‘s Chris Evans and Anthony Mackie, Spider-Man 3‘s Topher Grace, Fantastic Four‘s Ioan Gruffudd and Parks and Recreation‘s Aubrey Plaza, as well as Martin Starr, Luke Wilson and Michelle Monaghan. Now a cast list wouldn’t seem that out of the ordinary for most motion pictures, this is for Playing It Cool (formally A Many Splintered Thing), a simple rom-com that is now available on VOD. Is it a bad movie? »

Coinciding with the release of yesterday’s Thor character poster, the official Marvel site has posted an in depth interview with Chris Hemsworth, during which the star offered up a few details about the God of Thunder’s role in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
“We pick up with Thor having stayed on Earth from Thor: The Dark World. He’s part of the team. This is his home for the moment. The initial attack from Ultron is personal because it’s at all the Avengers, and Thor then begins to see a bigger sort of picture here about what this threat could be potentially. And it begins to tie in to all of our films… I think [Thor] openly admits he doesn’t think we can win this one. The threat is so great that all of them are scratching their heads wondering if this it. It’s just an onslaught, »

As Marvel steps up the publicity for Avengers: Age of Ultron with a series of character posters [check them out here], Yahoo! Movies caught up with Joss Whedon, during which the director discussed the scope of the hotly-anticipated sequel and its “unhinged” final act as Earth’s Mightiest Heroes take on the villainous AI and his army of Ultron bots.
“Avengers: Age of Ultron got larger than the first film,” states Whedon. “I didn’t mean for it to get larger, but the climax that I pitched was completely unhinged and nobody said no, so that’s that… To me, adventure film is the best way to put it. Then science fiction, action, western, war, woman’s picture, horror movie … I’m not kidding; every single one of those things is in there.”
“You know they’re going to fight Ultron,” he continues. “You know Ultron has a tendency to build hundreds of Ultrons. »

Anyone who has ever watched the Godzilla films knows that he isn’t a monster at all. More of a protector really. So this hotel room opening in Tokyo, really is quite soothing to know you have someone looking over you. Not scary at all, honestly.
For just $334 a night on weekdays, you can have Godzilla’s hand looming over you as you sleep and a statue of the kaiju peacefully guarding your doorway. You can even get a room that looks directly out at a Godzilla head mounted on the roof of the hotel.
Ah the Japanese; so like us.
We all know Michael Keaton should’ve won an Oscar last Sunday. In fact, he probably thought so too. Take a look at this Vine, in which it kind of looks like he’s putting a piece of paper, maybe an acceptance speech back into his jacket pocket right »

Following on from the Iron Man and Hulk posters earlier this week, Marvel Studios have now released three further character posters from the upcoming "Avengers: Age of Ultron". The new one-sheets include Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury, Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow and Chris Hemsworth's Thor. Still to come are Captain America, Hawkeye, Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch and potentially Vision.
In related news, now that the cat is out of the bag regarding Anthony Mackie's Falcon making an appearance in the film, the actor is publicly expressing how damn happy he is about it. Whether he's happy enough to fulfil an old pledge about running naked through Times Square with the film's logo on his chest remains to be seen.

One can only imagine the amount of pressure that's been building on Anthony Mackie over these last few months.
