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. »

The social media marketing continues today for Marvel’s superhero sequel, Avengers: Age Of Ultron. On Tuesday, Marvel unleashed a new poster for the movie, that’s since received a fair amount of critical whallop due to its overcrowded ambition.
Each day since we’ve been delivered a series of individual character posters for Earth’s Mightiest Heroes that commenced with Tony Stark’s Iron Man, followed by Bruce Banner’s alter-ego, The Hulk. Rounding out the week are a brand new trio, featuring Black Widow, Nick Fury and Thor. Check them out below:

On June 12th 2014, I visited the London set of Avengers: Age of Ultron. In October, we posted our on set interviews with Mark Ruffalo, Robert Downey Jr. and director Joss Whedon. Today we’ve been given the green light to publish our interview with another Avenger: Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth. Here is a short snippet from Hemsworth explaining how the stakes in this […]

A new wave of character posters have been arriving this week for Avengers: Age of Ultron, with the stars themselves releasing the one-sheets through their official Twitter accounts. Apparently Samuel L. Jackson has become the ambassador for his Twitter-less cast mates, debuting posters for his own character Nick Fury, along with Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow and Chris Hemsworth's Thor earlier today. It's clear that all of these one-sheets take place at the same battle, but since they all have slightly different backgrounds, perhaps they will all form one gigantic poster, similar to the one Marvel debuted at Comic-Con last summer.
In Avengers: Age of Ultron, Tony Stark attempts to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program. Things soon go awry and Earth's Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. »
Perhaps in preparation for the weekend, when people take a bit of a break from the internet to get some fresh air, Marvel has just unveiled three characters poster for The Avengers: Age of Ultron to follow Iron Man and Hulk earlier this week. We're still waiting to hear what this big announcement may be that Robert Downey Jr. teased on Wednesday, but maybe it'll coincide with the return of "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D" next week. In the meantime, you can check out the posters featuring Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), and stay tuned for more. Look now! Here's the three new posters for The Avengers: Age of Ultron from Marvel: You can still watch the most recent trailer for The Avengers: Age of Ultron again right here.

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 »

Here’s Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow, Chris Hemsworth’s Thor and Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury…

If I had to rank the top ten things I've witnessed on a film set, one of those spots would be taken by the moment that occurred as a group of reporters, all flown to London by Marvel, walked out onto the upper balcony of the main room of the Avengers Tower set. Below us, two figures stood locked in combat. Or at least, they stood locked in the rehearsal for combat, as Joss Whedon walked around them, discussing the staging of the fight. We immediately recognized one of the figures as Thor, and one of the things that I find most impressive about Chris Hemsworth is that even when they have his stunt double on set, Hemsworth is still the biggest guy in the room. He is gigantic. I'm not 100% sure I'm the same gender as Hemsworth. He is, in a word, absurd. Of course they cast him as a god walking the Earth. »

It's midafternoon on the suburban London set of Avengers: Age of Ultron, inside a gleaming soundstage that's been transformed into Tony Stark's sleek, new, modern-art-studded living room. Chris Hemsworth's stunt double - who looks very much like the blond, chiseled actor until his wig flies off mid fight scene and makes the entire crew erupt in laughter - is working out some last-minute kinks ahead of shooting. Before Hemsworth himself swaps places with him and films his battle against Paul Bettany's character, The Vision, he takes a moment to sit down with a group of reporters to talk about the Marvel sequel. Bettany is just one of several newcomers to the Avengers universe, and Chris tells us the new blood has reinvigorated the cast. "It shakes things up. This new cast, all of a sudden, breaks the familiar rhythm that we may have and makes it a bit more unpredictable. »
"I only got two more movies in my contract," Samuel L. Jackson told IGN last month, but are we really seeing the penultimate appearance of Nick Fury in "Avengers: Age Of Ultron"? Well, if Agent Coulson can't die (nor Nick Fury as we saw in "Captain America: The Winter Soldier"), anything is possible. At any rate, he's just one of three characters to get shiny new posters for 'Age Of Ultron' today. The others are Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow and Chris Hemsworth's Thor, and they all stand in the foreground as massive destruction unfolds behind them. I dunno, maybe they should turn around and help out instead of posing for photos? Kids these days.... "Avengers: Age Of Ultron" arrives on May 1st. Check out a new TV spot for the blockbuster below. »

Earlier this week, the first in a series of character posters from the highly-anticipated action-packed sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron debuted, straight from the Twitter pages of stars Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man) and Mark Ruffalo (Hulk). Today, Samuel L. Jackson debuted two more one-sheets for his character Nick Fury and Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow from his own Twitter page. With a cast that's larger than ever, there may be no end in sight to these poster reveals for this Marvel Phase Two sequel.
As in the previous one-sheets, both Nick Fury and Black Widow are seen in the midst of battle, with several of Ultron's (James Spader) robotic soldiers looming in the background. In Avengers: Age of Ultron, Tony Stark attempts to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program. Things soon go awry and Earth's Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, »
What is one to do with what is no longer a "new" trend, but instead the "new normal", as studios have taken to releasing character posters for each and every character in their upcoming franchise films to ensure the buzz never endsc The character posters for Avengers: Age of Ultron began Wednesday, February 25, when the actor's publicists posted an Iron Man character poster on Twitter, which also warned of a "big announcement in 8 days". What will March 5 holdc Well, it will likely be the day after the last character poster is revealed, giving us a new trailer or something, which will likely play in front of Chappie that weekend. Today, however, we are now up to five posters, those being for Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) along with a new TV spot. Age of Ultron is set for a »

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.
Oh... It just got real! This poster is definitely going on the wall!!! Sam Wilson is back baby.@Avengers #Cutthecheck pic.twitter.com/768d8j0Buw

The first official Avengers: Age of Ultron poster was a big mess of characters and details, but the character posters are a lot more clean. It helps that the posters only have to focus on one character each — in this latest case, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Scarlet Johansson as […]

Amazing as it is to see all of the core members of The Avengers unifying on the big screen, it.s certainly less narratively fulfilling if there isn.t any real reason for all of the heroes to be together. Easy as the excuse "They.re all friends" is, the truth is that the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron will benefit from actually providing time to give reason for each character.s individual presence. Fortunately, this appears to be very much in the cards for the blockbuster . at least for Thor, who will be bringing a very interesting element to the table in the fight against the movie.s titular villain: his Asgardian knowledge, and ability to travel between realms. Chris Hemsworth delved into this very topic while on the Avengers 2 set, which I was given the wonderful opportunity to visit alongside a small group of other film journalists last »

The first thing that you need to know about actually meeting Chris Hemsworth is that he's huge. Like the kind of huge that you imagine him having to turn sideways to fit through doorframes. He is every bit the god that he plays in the Marvel movies and on the day we were visiting the set, he stood side-by-side his stunt double and for size and height and muscle mass, easily dwarfed him. Chris Hemsworth does not mess around. And in "Avengers: Age of Ultron," he really means business.
For most of the day we got to watch a scene where Hemsworth, as mighty Norse warrior Thor, was battling The Vision, a new character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (portrayed by Paul Bettany, who up until this point had been heard but not seen in the McU as the voice of Tony Stark's electronic butler Jarvis). Bettany looked amazing, with »

Staying true to the character.s comic book origin as a somewhat Shakespearean royal figure, Thor has earned a reputation as being a bit of an uptight figure in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This is partially because of his arrogance problem, but also just because he kind of has a lot of duties to attend to throughout the galaxy, and has little time for foolishness. This was true through the end of Thor: The Dark World, but, interestingly, this attitude is going to be getting a bit of a facelift in Joss Whedon.s The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Last summer, I had the pleasure of being a part of a small group that was invited to visit the set of the forthcoming mega-blockbuster, and it was while talking with Chris Hemsworth that we learned that Thor.s energy in the movie will be much more relaxed than we.re »
