Stan Lee confirmed yesterday that he has wrapped his role in Avengers: Age of Ultron, in which he has a cameo. It will be his 18th appearance in a movie over the past 13 years. He shows no signs of slowing down at age 92, and has hinted that director Zack Snyder and DC Comics should now put him in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Will that happen? Judging from the Captain America 3 v Dawn of Justice release date standoff, probably not. But that hasn't stopped the creator of the main Marvel universe from doling out some advice to those rivals at Warner Bros. and DC Comics.
Stan Lee appeared at the London Film and ComicCon event in support of what he's spent a lifetime creating, and commented on the rampant success of Marvel's big screen endeavors.
"All it can do is make it better for Marvel if we do these »
With just two weeks until San Diego Comic-Con, we’re still unsure as to whether we will see some a trailer or some footage from Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron. But its star Mark Ruffalo, who will be reprising his role as Bruce Banner/The Hulk, has posted a set picture of him in the motion-capture technology.
The picture is to push his competition in which one lucky winner can hang out with him on set of Avengers: Age of Ulton for the day. He posted the image with the comment, “The Hulkatization of the Banner. Come see it happen”…
You can enter the competition here by donating money to Ruffalo’s favourite charity Water Defence.

With production on the Marvel sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron currently taking place in the UK, Total Film managed to catch up with director Joss Whedon who shared a few comments on the sequel to 2012′s mega-blockbuster The Avengers.
“The model I’m always trying to build from is The Godfather: Part II, where a ton has happened in between and it’s a very different movie, but you don’t need any information. You’re in the vernacular of the first movie and you’re ready to just pick up in this new place. It’s got a sci-fi element to it that’s stronger than the other film. And it’s a little bit darker. Getting the team together was so rousing, but keeping the team together is a completely different problem.”

Last weekend may have been consumed by Mark Wahlberg, Autobots, Dinobots and one too many Michael Bay low angle shots, but there was also a unique take on romantic comedies in the mix too, David Wain’s They Came Together. It stars Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler as Joel and Molly. While on a double date with Bill Hader and Ellie Kemper’s characters, Joel and Molly run through the history of their relationship, hitting an abundance of all-too-familiar rom-com troupes along the way. They Came Together hit select theaters and On Demand on June 27th, so if you caught Matt’s review, you might have already checked it out, but if you’d like a taste of the type of comedy and tone Wain’s going for first, we got our hands on some exclusive material from the film that might help you out.

There has been a flurry of super-important, nostalgia-drenched movie anniversaries recently, including, but not limited to Tim Burton's "Batman" (25 years), "Gremlins" (30 years), "Ghostbusters" (30 years) and "The Karate Kid" (30 years). But one movie that seems to have been overlooked completely is "Weekend at Bernie's" (find out where to watch) which came out 25 years ago this week. The story of a couple of yuppies who try to pretend that their dead boss hasn't died at all, it was a surprise hit, pulling in double its production budget at the box office and spawning a goofy, guilty pleasure sequel. (It did get a Blu-ray release earlier this summer, so you can now watch all of the icky '80s tomfoolery in HD.)
Even though "Weekend at Bernie's" was far from a phenomenon (as evidenced by the deafening silence around its anniversary), you can bet one thing: it will be remade. Look no »

Just over three months ago, Avengers: Age of Ultron was in the midst of its Italy shoot in the Aosta Valley. Production is still ongoing in London, but today, a 16-minute video from the Italy portion of the production, shot in late March, has surfaced, giving us a glimpse at Elizabeth Olsen in action as Scarlet Witch. Naturally, since this video was taken from afar, and it isn't clear if there is any dialogue being said, it's hard to determine the context of the footage, although it makes one wonder who caused the giant crater she is standing in. Was this the work of Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), or the villainous Ultron (James Spader) and his army?
The video features Elizabeth Olsen for roughly the first five minutes, although after that, we only get to see crew members setting up new shots. However, the action picks up again at the 13:30 mark, »
Recently, this new set clip (below) from the upcoming "Avengers 2: Age Of Ultron" super hero/action flick, hit the net. It features footage from when they were filming over in Italy, and shows actress, Elizabeth Olsen, in action as the Scarlet Witch at one point. It also showcases a bunch of set preparations. Then, at around the 13:30 mark, a lot more action is shown when a ton of Eastern European extras start running from what previous set photos have revealed to be Ultron and guys in motion-capture suits (probably Ultron's army). The movie stars: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Samuel L. Jackson, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, James Spader, Cobie Smulders, Thomas Kretschmann, and Paul Bettany. The movie is going to bring the Marvel Universe's biggest heroes together again to face one of their biggest villains, with "Marvel's The Avengers" director »
As Mark Ruffalo continues his press tour for the upcoming indie drama Begin Again, more details are begining to surfacing about Avengers: Age of Ultron, which is currently in production. He once again teases the tantalizing possibility of a stand-alone Hulk movie, as well as whom he'd like to see portray She-Hulk.
Following 2003's Hulk and 2008's The Incredible Hulk, fans finally got the Green Goliath they deserved with Mark Ruffalo's beloved performance in 2012's Marvel's The Avengers. While he is not the only Avenger who hasn't had his own stand-alone movie (Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow and Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye), Marvel fans have been quite vocal about their desire to see Hulk's solo big screen adventure.
Earlier this month, Mark Ruffalo teased that Marvel Studios is finally considering a Hulk stand-alone project, but he also said yesterday that he isn't interested in making Planet Hulk, where Bruce Banner »
The guys at Latino Review have stumbled across a nearly 16-minute Avengers: Age of Ultron set video that was uploaded back when filming was underway in Italy. It starts out with Elizabeth Olsen filming some rather interesting scenes as the Scarlet Witch which could be a spoiler, but at the 5:00-minute mark, the video just showcases a bunch of set preperations. Then, at around the 13:30 mark, the action picks back up with countless Eastern European extras running from what previous set photos have revealed to be Ultron and guys in motion-capture suits (probably Ultron's army). Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Cobie Smulders Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, with Paul Bettany, Samuel L. Jackson, and James Spader. The film is set for release on May 1, 2015. »
A Hulk stand-alone movie? Not so fast! While Mark Ruffalo has been talking a lot about the possibilities of the green goliath getting his own new solo film, that may be further away than we think. And remember what the actor said yesterday? That he doesn't want a Planet Hulk movie? Well, it seems he may be trying to throw the scent of what is actually happening with the character. Because Hulk will return before The Avengers 3. But not in his own movie.
Hitfix, who recently visited the UK set of Avengers: Age of Ultron, learned a lot about the storyline of this upcoming sequel to 2012's Marvel's The Avengers, including the ending of the movie. And it climaxes on a story point many fans are expecting, but maybe not quite how they expected.

Release Date: June 27, 2014 (Chicago)
Plot: Two New Yorkers (Rudd and Poehler) recount the unexpected tale of how they met.
The formula of the romantic comedy remains one of the most unchanged in all of Earth’s science; the gravity of characters within a film of this type can feel more guaranteed than gravity in real life itself. Thus, there is a grandiose amount of catharsis, and stupidly loud baboon-like laughter, to be experienced with David Wain’s They Came Together, a mad man’s giddy concoction that is spirited by its bold, »

Andy Serkis has been hitting the press circuit lately to promote his highly-anticipated sequel Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, with the actor revealing yesterday that he has a motion capture role in Disney's Star Wars: Episode VII, while also serving as a consultant through his company The Imaginarium. During a new interview with Variety, the actor revealed he is also pulling double duty as an actor and consultant on Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron.
When asked if his face will be seen in Avengers: Age of Ultron, the actor would not comment. »
After Hulk stole the show in Marvel's The Avengers, talk of a new solo movie has persisted, with varying accounts from various different people about how Marvel and Disney might proceed with the character. We know Mark Ruffalo's Bruce Banner is going to have a beefed up role in Avengers: Age of Ultron, but its unclear how the green goliath will be handled moving forward. We've long heard talk of a Planet Hulk stand-alone movie, an idea that Marvel's head honcho Kevin Feige continues to champion. One person who doesn't want that to happen though? Mark Ruffalo.
""I don't think [Planet Hulk] is the way to go yet. I think you need more Banner. The whole thing is just him as Hulk, »
Oh, Canada. Sometimes we forget how much talent you hold within your borders.

So in honour of Canada's 147th birthday on July 1, we present to you our very favourite Canadian movie actors.
We couldn't possibly name every single Canadian film actor out there, so we just chose a few of our favourites. If there is a very glaring omission, please let us know and we might include!

Come Undone: Wain’s Cliché Buster Episodically Funny
Every now and then, director David Wain delivers a great film with his certain brand of offbeat humor darkly shining, particularly with Role Models (2008) and Wet Hot American Summer (2001). At the very least, his less successful ventures feature standout performances from someone in his regular crew of comedic comrades (Michaela Watkins in Wanderlust, for instance). But arriving with the Amy Poehler and Paul Rudd headlined They Came Together (yeah, it’s supposed to mean that, too), finds Wain at his most strained since the episodically structured The Ten. Except, this film might have actually benefitted from a string of vignettes harpooning ridiculous rom-com tropes rather than the befuddling exercise at hand centered on two people that we’re watching solely as performers engaging in sketches rather than actual characters, utilizing a variety of broad comedic styles that feel lifted from the likes of The Naked Gun. »

Chicago – If there is any genre of film that needs a good blasting, it is the romantic comedy. These silly fantasies practically seem like satires anyway, so when the comic genius of writer/director David Wain ponders them, and casts Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler as the “couple,” the funny will fly.
Although making fun of the rom-com is like shooting fish in a barrel, Wain – with co-writer Michael Showalter – use all kind of firing weapons. The film is actually like the “Airplane” of rom-com satires, going so extreme and surreal that you will be as much freaking out as laughing, which is awesome. Rudd, Poehler, Cobie Smulders (“How I Met Your Mother”), Bill Hader and Ellie Kemper (“The Office”) are all at the top of their comic games, and they deliver the sometimes bizarre material to perfection. If you love or hate rom-coms, this movie is for you. »
