Avengers: Age Of Ultron Concept Art Reveals James Spader’s Ultimate Form

24 October 2014 9:07 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

After the unexpected trailer release this week, we sort of got the idea of what Avengers: Age of Ultron would look like.  But what we didn't get was a super clear image of Ultron's final design in the film (most of the footage of him appears to center on his incomplete form).  But now some concept art has hit that rectifies that issue.  In the film, Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) reunite to stop Ultron (James Spader) “from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.” Elizabeth OlsenAaron Taylor-JohnsonPaul BettanyDon CheadleAndy Serkis, and Samuel L. Jackson also star in the sequel directed by Joss Whedon.  Avengers: Age of Ultron opens May 1, 2015.  Check out the concept art after the jump. »

Ten Best: Woodland Horrors

24 October 2014 6:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Deep in stark woodland at the base of Mount Fuji, restless whispers echo as the light fades on a mid-winter afternoon. Here, amongst a maze of roots, a lone figure takes her life, binding her body to the branches and her spirit to the undergrowth.

Years later, Miko and her college friends head into Suicide Forest. Miko yearns to abide a Halloween ritual steeped in demonic tradition which will release her mother’s trapped soul. Filming their journey amongst the shadows, strange things start to happen; angry murmurs and sightings of ghosts warn there are those who do not want them there. Suddenly, the path to life is barricaded by the dead who have nothing to lose…

To celebrate Grave Halloween (pictured above) being released on DVD on 27th October, we’ve decided to explore other iconic woodland horror films.

James Spader talks about playing Ultron in Avengers: Age of Ultron

23 October 2014 11:35 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As you’re no doubt aware, the trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron leaked ahead of its planned reveal during next week’s episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., with Marvel Studios subsequently releasing the trailer officially. In the trailer we got our first look at the villain Ultron in action, along with his chilling voice, and now actor James Spader has spoken to Total Film about the menacing AI bad guy…

“There’s a humerous aspect to him, which is something that drew me in from the very first conversation I had with Joss [Whedon],” Spader revealed. “In many ways he’s a child, this character, because he’s a brand new being who’s just come to be. And yet, through artificial intelligence, he has an incredible capacity for knowledge. So he’s a very powerful, smart child.”

Spader was asked about comparing the character of Ultron to Raymond Reddington »

Ultron's Look Revealed in 'Avengers 2' Art

23 October 2014 6:11 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just one day after Marvel released the first official trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron, following an online leak, the first promo art featuring a full look at the villainous Ultron (James Spader) has surfaced.

The image comes from Twitter user Galliettd, who found the art at Vk.com, although it hasn't been confirmed if this is official artwork or not. While it's certainly possible that this image isn't the real deal, Cbm notes that it is likely authentic, since it would be difficult to create such a high quality image between the time the trailer debuted last night, which gave us our first look at Ultron, and now.

The official synopsis released last month revealed that Ultron is "hell-bent on human extinction," a point which is made abundantly clear in yesterday's footage. Stay tuned for more details regarding Avengers: Age of Ultron as we get closer and closer to the May 1, 2015 release date. »

James Spader Says Avengers: Age Of Ultron’s Titular Villain Is a “Powerful, Smart Child” and “Batshit Crazy”

23 October 2014 12:44 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Yesterday, fans finally got a look at Avengers: Age of Ultron (click here for screengrabs from the trailer), which was dominated by James Spader voicing the eponymous, evil robot.  The highly-anticipated sequel looks much darker than the first, and obviously a large part of that comes from an intimidating villain.  If audiences are going to buy Ultron as a true threat—and, let's face it, someone as charismatic as Loki—then it's going to come from Spader. Thankfully, the actor has a strong understanding of how he sees the character, and how he'll bring the Avengers' foe to life.  Hit the jump for what Spader had to say.  The film also stars Robert Downey Jr.Chris EvansChris HemsworthMark RuffaloScarlett JohanssonJeremy RennerElizabeth OlsenPaul Bettany, and Aaron Taylor-JohnsonAvengers: Age of Ultron opens May 1, 2015. Speaking to Total Film, Spader explained what drew him to the character »

Who Is The Mystery Woman In The Avengers: Age Of Ultron Trailer?

23 October 2014 11:17 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Many questions arose from the first, awesome trailer for Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age Of Ultron: who is Andy Serkis playing? Why are the heroes (literally in Thor's case) at each other's throats? When did Ultron have a chance to sit down and watch Pinocchio? But one of the biggest talking points was the identity of the woman in blue, standing next to Chris Hemsworth's Thor just as Ultron makes his entrance during the party scene. She seemed too tall to be Natalie Portman's Jane Foster, she clearly wasn't Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow), and although there was a chance it was Thor's pal Sif (Jamie Alexander), that didn't seem likely either. Well, Newsarama have blown up the highest resolution image they could find, and it looks like we now have the identity of the actress at least...if not the character. Although the pic is still pretty blurry, »
