“Banner’s been living in Stark Tower. They’ve been working side by side and Bruce has his own lab now. He’s doing work that augments Tony’s own, which could lead to an experiment going wrong… His relationship with Natasha [Scarlett Johansson] deepens. There’s something similar about the two of them. I see them as lost souls. They’re kindred in some ways.”
And as for the Green Goliath: “[Banner’s] ability to handle the Hulk really gets thrown into question in this film. The hard part is coming back. Hulk doesn’t want to cede his place. It’s much harder to come back from being Hulk than it is to get into him. I »

We've already heard rumors that the Marvel Cinematic Universe landscape will be altered forever with Avengers: Age of Ultron, but we likely won't know the extent of this change before the Phase Two sequel arrives in theaters May 1, 2015. Obviously, the villainous Ultron (James Spader) will have a lot to do with what is happening, and we've reported in the past that Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark actually creates Ultron, although his creation turns against him, and the rest of humanity. During a recent interview with Total Film, Mark Ruffalo hinted that his character, Bruce Banner will have a hand in Ultron's creation. While he doesn't outright say that Banner is responsible for Ultron, his comments certainly allude to Banner's role in Ultron coming into power, while confirming that Banner has been living at Stark Tower.
"Banner's been living in Stark Tower. They've been working side by side and Bruce has his own lab now. »
Fans clearly want to see much more of Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man. Just a few months ago the star was asked if we would get an Iron Man 4 to which Downey said yes, before changing his mind and saying no (of course, it was subsequently cleared up with the news that he’s set to appear in the third Captain America movie, Captain America: Civil War).
However, Downey has now taken to his Facebook page to hint at a possible a fourth Iron Man movie, sharing the following image with the caption ‘So…would the next one just be a shot of my chest hair?’
With plans set out through to 2019 and no sign of an Iron Man 4, it looks like Rdj may just be teasing fans here…

When the first trailer for director Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age of Ultron debuted back in October, fans got their first real look at the villainous Ultron, voiced by James Spader. The eight-foot tall robot was created by Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) to give the Avengers a much-needed break from fighting crime all over the world, but, as it turns out, Ultron sees all of humanity as a threat that needs to be eradicated. Filmmaker Joss Whedon recently spoke with Entertainment Weekly, where he compared Ultron's story to a classic horror creature.
"It's our new Frankenstein myth. We create something in our own image and the thing turns on us. It has that pain of 'Well, why was I made? I want to kill Daddy.'"
Last week, Hot Toys debuted a first look at their Iron Man figure from Avengers: Age of Ultron, showing Tony Stark in his Mark Xliii Armor. The figure is incredibly detailed, with the photos giving us a pretty great idea of what the Mark 43 suit will look like on the big screen. Now, Hot Toys has debuted more from their Avengers 2 lineup, offering a sneak peek at Hawkeye, Captain America, Black Widow and Thor in their new costumes. We also get a more detailed look at Hulkbuster and Thanos.
Hot Toys debuted the new lineup of figure at the Toy Soul 2014 Expo this weekend. And as you can see in the tweets below, these toys bring a great idea of what we can expect to see from these main characters in 2015. We also get a look at the Hulk, who pretty much looks exactly like he did in Marvel's The Avengers. »
Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is currently on hiatus for the next few months, with the new series Marvel's Agent Carter taking over its Tuesday, 9 Pm time slot starting January 6 for an eight-episode run. During Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s two seasons, there have been several connections between the show and the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including tie-ins to Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, along with characters who have crossed over from the movies to TV, such as Coulson (Clark Gregg), Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders), Jasper Sitwell (Maximiliano Hernández) and Lady Sif (Jaimie Alexander). Earlier this week, Clark Gregg posted an intriguing comic book photo on his Facebook page, which may tease that Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye is set to make an appearance on the ABC series.
The image is taken from the Secret Avengers #10 comic, which was released in November, »
We heard earlier this month that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will somehow lead / tie in to Marvel’s hugely-anticipated May sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron, but could Jeremy Renner’s Clint Barton be a part of that? Well, Agent Coulson himself Clark Gregg may have just teased a Hawkeye appearance in the show, with the actor posting the following panel from Secret Avengers #10 to his Facebook page…
Should Hawkeye make a guest appearance, Jeremy Renner would be following in the footsteps of McU stars such as Cobie Smulders, Samuel L. Jackson and Jaimie Alexander, all of whom have reprised their roles for episodes of the ABC series. And of course, a Hawkeye appearance would surely be a huge ratings boost for the show, and a chance to plug the release of Age of Ultron. Not that it needs the extra promotion, of course…
Would you like to see Hawkeye in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.? »

The filmmaker said that he tried and failed to distance himself from Marvel Studios' sequel.
"I actually didn't want to make the film," he told Comics Alliance. "I was ragged from the first one, and so I just turned off my brain.
"I was like, 'Do not think of cool ideas for the next one. Just get through this'."
However, Whedon failed at this attempt, recalling: "I went to a pub, and sat down with my notebook, and about 45 minutes later, my notebook was filled.
"I have so many things to say, and I was... I was kind of surprised. It was very beautiful."

According to a recent report from Comicbookmovie.com, "Avengers 2: Age Of Ultron" Maria Hill star, Cobie Smulders (left), chatted with Entertainment Weekly to dish out new spoiler scoopage for the movie in regards to her character. It turns out that we're going to see the Avengers crew do all sorts of different things, and that many locations all over the world, will be featured, and more. Cobie explained to them: "There’s so many pieces to this giant puzzle, and I’m happy that Maria Hill is one of them. She’s working for Tony Stark, yes, but they shot so many locations all over the world and this team is out doing all sorts of things. So I like to think that Maria is at headquarters, trying to keep everything running as smoothly as possible. And working for Tony Stark is a whole other ballgame. She doesn’t have S. »
There’s less than five months to go before Marvel brings the curtain down on Phase Two of the Cinematic Universe with Avengers: Age of Ultron, and the director has been speaking in depth to IGN about the hotly-anticipated sequel, including expanding the world of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes with the introduction of new characters like The Vision, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, and of course the AI villain Ultron.
” I wanted Paul [Bettany] to play this part since before I wanted to make Avengers movies,” states Whedon on The Vision. “He’s just got, let’s face it, it’s about cheek bones, people… Before I took the first job, I said, ‘Well, I don’t know if I’m right for this, or if I want it, or you want me, but in the second one, the villain has to be Ultron, and he has to create the Vision.’ And »

A large photo of the merchandising tie-in Lego sets for Marvel's "Avengers: Age of Ultron" has gone online and in the process seems to reveal some big moments in the film and which characters will be involved in some key action sequences.
Of course, the shot may be purely for promotional purposes only and don't expect each of the scenarios depicted to be an actual moment from the film. The photo does seem to suggest the following possibilities and setups though:
The Iron Man Hulkbuster vs. Hulk fight seen in the trailer also appears to involve Scarlett Witch (Elisabeth Olson), and Hulk restrained in some kind of device.
An action sequence at a Hydra castle base in Europe where Hulk takes on a tank whilst Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) is charging at him. At the same time Captain America takes on Baron von Strucker (Thomas Kretschmann) who has Loki's scepter. There »

While not necessarily a superhero, S.H.I.E.L.D. agent-turned-Stark employee Maria Hill has become a valuable utility player in the McU, and star Cobie Smulders's has been able to continually bring something new to her performance.

When Cobie Smulders recently sat down with Entertainment Weekly to discuss her latest film, the Canadian actress was eventually asked about reprising her Captain America: The Winter Soldier role as Maria Hill in Avengers: Age of Ultron. “There’s so many pieces to this giant puzzle, and I’m happy that Maria Hill is one of them,” she said of her character. “She’s working for Tony Stark, yes, but they shot so many locations all over the world and this team is out doing all sorts of things. So I like to think that Maria is at headquarters, trying to keep everything running as smoothly as possible. And working for Tony Stark is a whole other ballgame. She doesn’t have S.H.I.E.L.D. personnel to back her up at her disposal, so it’s an entirely different vibe for her.” Despite the many new and »

There is still plenty we don't know about Avengers: Age of Ultron, as we inch closer and closer to the May 1, 2015 release date. One aspect of the story that has rarely been touched upon is the inclusion of Vision, which will be played by Paul Bettany, the longtime voice of J.A.R.V.I.S. in the Iron Man movies and Marvel's The Avengers. Earlier this month, a new poster offered us our best look at Vision yet, but the images were later removed, following a promo poster spotted in September. When asked when fans will finally get their first official look at Vision, Paul Bettany had this to say, in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
"It's still a secret. I think all will be revealed very shortly. It's a secret I've kept for about three years, which is really hard, especially with three kids. I'm contractually »
