'Avengers 2': Joss Whedon on Superhero Nightmares & Runtime

4 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

In an interview with BuzzFeed, director Joss Whedon has confirmed that his new sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron will be one full minute shorter than Marvel's The Avengers, clocking in at a hefty 142 minutes (2 hrs and 22 minutes). The first cut of the movie was actually a full hour longer, but a lot of backstory was cut out. Especially some moments with Scarlet Witch, which helped better explain her powers. But we'll still get to see those powers in full effect. The director reveals that we'll get to see inside this team of superheroes' heads, as Scarlet Witch, played by Elizabeth Olsen, is capable of giving them nightmares. He explains:

"She can make you have a nightmare, is one way of putting it. Trip balls would be another one. That was something I very much wanted, because it meant we could spend a little time inside the Avengers' heads, either their »

'Avengers 2' Quicksilver Is Very Different from 'X-Men'

7 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

We're rounding third base as we enter the climactic final act of Marvel's promotional push for Avengers: Age of Ultron. Which means we're going to be seeing a fireworks display of interviews, clips and more from this upcoming sequel. Today, we have word from Joss Whedon about his newest character Quicksilver, as played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson. Talking with BUzzFeed from the set, he reveals that he was never 'thrilled' about 20th Century Fox also getting to use the character in last summer's X-Men: Days of Future Past, which featured Evan Peters in his breakout role. For better or worse, the director promises that his Quicksilver is very different from what we saw in that movie, and should not be compared to The CW's The Flash either. About Fox getting there first, though, Joss Whedon says:

"I think there's room for more than one Quicksilver. But yeah, I was never thrilled. »

New ‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron’ Spot Introduces Super Twins Quicksilver & Scarlet Witch

10 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

As if the return of Marvel’s Agents Of Shield wasn’t enough for us, those kind people at Marvel Studios have also ramped up the excitement for upcoming Avengers: Age Of Ultron with some new clips and interviews.

Giving an introduction to two of the latest additions to Marvel’s cinematic universe, this minute-long TV spot focuses on troubled twins Pietro (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen), or Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch as they’re better known.

Showcasing the pairs’ impressive talents and highlighting their tragic backstory, the featurette doesn’t give too much away (despite hinting at possible narrative points) but serves as a solid introduction to two of Marvel’s longest serving characters.

As you’ll no doubt know by now, Avengers: Age Of Ultron follows the rise of evil machine Ultron (voiced by James Spader), his threat to humanity and the efforts of the titular »

'Avengers 2' Photo Shows Hydra Soldiers in Chitauri Armor

27 March 2015 4:36 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While it's speculated that Avengers: Age of Ultron will open with an attack on Baron von Strucker's castle, as the team liberates future members Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, there is still much we don't know about this raid, aside from some of the snowy images we've seen with Bruce Banner and Hawkeye tromping through the very cold Sokovian forest. Now, we have a couple of images from this action-packed set piece from the sequel. And it reveals not only a Hyrda tank but also Strucker's Hyrda army.

These images are from a kids' picture book, and they piece together events from early on in the movie. We see Chris Hemsworth smiling as Thor, ready for battle. Next, we see a tank as it patrols the Sokovian countryside, protecting a base that is more secure than any The Avengers have ever faced before. The place is surrounded by heavy security. We »

Robert Downey Jr. talks Avengers: Age of Ultron and Tony Stark’s relationship with Steve Rogers

27 March 2015 4:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Avengers: Age of Ultron less than a month away from its UK release, we should expect to hear plenty of comments from the cast of the hotly-anticipated Marvel sequel as its arrival edges ever closer. Times of India has been speaking to Robert Downey Jr. about the film, during with he offered up a few words on Tony Stark’s character leading into the sequel.

“With the first film, The Avengers, Tony was becoming a team player and with Iron Man 3, it was him transcending his dependency on the tech that’s keeping him alive. So I thought, ‘Ok, now what?’ But there’s all this unfinished business. There’s the matter of a certain wormhole that opened over New York and the imminent threat that still implies, so Tony has turned his attentions more toward a bit of a post-Reagan-era, Star-Wars-type notion and he likes to call it Ultron. »

New Avengers: Age Of Ultron Featurette Highlights Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch

27 March 2015 3:17 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

We’ve seen glimpses of Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) in action in the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailers, but Marvel UK just unveiled a brand new featurette called “Super Siblings” that gives us a far more in-depth look at the characters, especially Scarlet Witch. As someone who isn’t too familiar with the source material, I never really knew how powerful she was, but based on what we see in this promo video, she’s going to have an especially devastating effect on the Avengers. Check out the Avengers: Age of Ultron featurette below. The film opens in 3D on May 1st and also stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Stellan Skarsgard, Samuel L.

'Captain Marvel' Not in 'Avengers 2'; Female Director Wanted

27 March 2015 2:23 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier in the week it was reported by 'Bum Juice' scoop extraordinaire El Mayimbe at Latino Review that Carol Danvers had been cast for the Marvel Phase Three adventure Captain Marvel, and would be making her debut appearance in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Fuel was added to the fire when toy photos from the movie appeared online that included Captain Marvel in the line-up. While this rumor has been lingering around for awhile, Nerdist now calls it completely false, saying the character is not going to appear on the big screen this summer:

"A source close to production confirms that Captain Marvel will not appear in Avengers 2."

It is not known, however, if the first part of Latino Review's scoop is correct. Did Marvel already cast the role of Carol Danvers? If that is true, we haven't heard whom landed this coveted part in Marvel's Phase Three line-up just yet. »

When Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters this May, the sequel will include all of Earth's Mightiest Heroes from Marvel's The Avengers, along with plenty of new faces as well. The studio has released a new featurette that showcases Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen). Director Joss Whedon says that these "super siblings" are "massively important new characters," and we also see new footage that shows how they were orphaned at just 10 years old. Elizabeth Olsen also reveals that Scarlet Witch "messes" with the Avengers' heads so much that they have to all go away together and come back as a unit.

Chris Evans adds that it takes the Avengers awhile to "understand who can be trusted and who can't, and who's on our squad and who isn't." It has been widely rumored (Spoiler Warning!) that Avengers: Age of Ultron ends with a new team of Avengers assembling, »

New Quicksilver And Scarlet Witch Avengers: Age Of Ultron TV Spot

27 March 2015 9:29 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Ultron's one thing - big bad robot who likes doing big bad things - but Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch... who are they? Really? Perhaps a minute-long TV spot isn't the perfect answer to that question, but it's the best around for now, featuring some new quips and clips from the upcoming Marvel superhero mash-up, Avengers: Age Of Ultron. So remember, if you're avoiding all kinds of spoilers, you're best off clicking away... now. Still here? Press play Asap.The plot, as you’ll likely know by now, finds malevolent machine intelligence Ultron (voiced and performed by James Spader along with a team of CG experts) posing a terrible threat to Stark, Cap, Banner and the rest – not only is it powerful enough to reduce large swathes of the world to rubble, it also helps sprout the lingering seeds of discontent between the Avengers themselves, which could well tear them apart from within. »

Captain America Drop Kicks An Ultron Bot In Avengers 2 International Clip

26 March 2015 8:55 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Fancy seeing Captain America drop kick and decapitate an Ultron bot? Of course you do. So I.m not going to waste your time with any preamble, just watch the Australian television spot for Avengers: Age Of Ultron and immediately start to salivate.  Sensational. Despite being just 15 seconds long, this brief look at Joss Whedon.s hugely anticipated sequel rams home the two main aspects of Avengers: Age Of Ultron. Firstly, that the world is in utter chaos because of Ultron.s decision to wreak havoc across the globe. And secondly, that the Avengers themselves are going through their own issues. That.s why Iron Man has created a Hulk-buster suit that he uses to drag the big, green monster through a skyscraper.  The fact that both Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Captain America (Chris Evans) are easily able to destroy the Ultron bots with an almighty swing of their hammer »
