Well, I don't think any of us were expecting this! The Avengers was so well-received in 2012 that the one critic who dared to slate it ended up facing death threats. Those nutcases will need a lot of paper to write those on this year though as the verdict on the sequel is far from overwhelmingly positive. The reviews aren't Bad either, but the overall verdict definitely indicates that Avengers: Age of Ultro isn't as good as expected. These are critics though, not fans, so let's just wait and see! For whatever reason, many of the sites below didn't provide star ratings, but we included them where possible. As always, be sure to share your thoughts on these reviews in the usual place. I’m happy to report the stars are all back, especially Chris Evans’ stoic Captain America, but also Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson and Chris Hemsworth. Also happily »
Warning: Spoilers Below. Obviously.
Out in cinemas this Friday, we caught an early screening of Avengers: Age of Ultron and are now here to give you the big spoiler of the day – the post-credits scene. Okay, so, we’re about to spoil the post-credits scene from Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Still with us?
Okay, here we go.
We fade up to reveal the glove famously worn by Thanos which holds the Infinity Stones. The big guy walks onto screen himself, looks into the camera and says, “fine, I’ll do it myself”. And then it cuts to black. A pretty simple one, and just there to set up Avengers: Infinity War -Part 1 and Part 2. There is no scene after the full credits, so you don’t need to wait around to see who provided the catering.

Jackson, Paul Bettany, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, James Spader, Thomas Kretschmann, Cobie Smulders, Claudia Kim, Andy Serkis, Don Cheadle, Stellan Skarsgård, Idris Elba, Hayley Atwell and Linda Cardellini
When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and it is up to the Avengers to stop the villainous Ultron from enacting his terrible plans.
When Joss Whedon’s The Avengers/ Avengers Assemble burst onto cinema screens three years ago, thrilling audiences and critics alike while also making a huge amount of money, the pressure was on for the King of Geeks to replicate the success with his follow up Avengers: Age of Ultron. Whedon has said that his aim was never to ‘top’ the movie that came before it, »

Director: Joss Whedon
Running Time: 141 minutes
Synopsis: Tony Stark (Downey Jr) creates the ultimate artificial intelligence in an attempt to defend the world. Sadly the AI decides the only way to protect the world is by destroying the human race. The Avengers team must join forces once more in an attempt to stop it from achieving its goal.
Joss Whedon has always been good. Some might know that he was the (uncredited) master behind Keanu Reeves mega-hit Speed as well as adding the best bits to Alien Resurrection. Then came Buffy, Angel, Firefly and Serenity; passion projects that saw him enter the circle of worship to many a TV geek. None of us were prepared for what came next though, his comic book caper The »

When Joss Whedon raised the bar in 2012 with Avengers Assemble, he used a crane to raise it. To say the anticipation for the sequel of the third highest grossing movie of all time, is at fever pitch, is an understatement. While Whedon is in the crane cab one more time raising bars, can he out raise the 2012 behemoth. No, is the answer. But he’s not far off the mark with Avengers Age Of Ultron. The main cast return with Iron-Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Captain America (Chris Evans), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Thor (Chris Hemsworth) all doing what they do best, saving the world. This time round, it’s Ultron, a Tony Stark creation, that brings the problems, in vast quantities. Lining out with Scarlett Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), Ultron rains down destruction upon our heroes as he attempts to »

Take a look (and be sure to check back tonight for our review of the superhero sequel)…

In news that surprised some folk (although not everyone following the Sony email hack back in December), Joss Whedon will not be returning to his Avengers franchise to direct Avengers: Infinity War – Parts 1 and Part 2, which will now be helmed by Anthony and Joe Russo (Captain America: The Winter Soldier).
So where does this leave Whedon in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?
“I don’t think I’ll ever get that far away from it. I plan a rest – a longer rest – perhaps an eternal rest. I have no immediate plans,” he told the European press conference in London to promote the movie. As noted by ourselves on the upcoming Flickering Myth Podcast review of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Whedon looked tired when introducing the movie and even noted that he “hated it”.
It’s likely Whedon will stick around in a consultant capacity, but he assured the press that executive »

Hugh Jackman has played Logan aka Wolverine in seven different films. It’s an impressive number that will shortly increase with a third solo Wolverine film and possibly X-Men:Apocalypse, although at the time of writing he has yet to be officially cast. A few other names are snapping at the heels of Jackman, notably the cast of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. If you include the forthcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron, Chris Evans has played Captain America four times (five if you include his appearance as Loki using magic to look like the first Avenger in Thor: The Dark World), Scarlett Johansson and Chris Hemsworth have portrayed Black Widow and Thor respectively four times each whilst the King of the McU, Robert Downey Jr. has made an impressive six appearances as Iron Man/Tony Stark (including his post-credit appearance in The Incredible Hulk).
Unfortunately for Hugh Jackman, as far as this article is concerned, »

Chris Hemsworth relished reprising the role of Thor in Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” saying, “It’s great to be a part of something that has this built-in audience and do the first film and have that audience respond positively and welcome you back for the next one and be part of something that has such following and success. It is a once-in-a-career opportunity. It’s cool to play a Super Hero.” For the character of Thor, the film picks up after “Thor: The Dark World,” so Thor is now living on Earth. “We see a more grounded, earthly version of Thor than we have in the past,” says Hemsworth. “It’s nice because there are a few more opportunities for some humor and to see him in some casual gear instead of the cape and the armor that we always see him in.” As far as Thor’s role within The Avengers team, »

Earlier this month, it was confirmed by producer Kevin Feige and director Joss Whedon that there will be no post-credits scene in Avengers: Age of Ultron, since the director felt he couldn't come up with a way of topping the infamous shawarma scene in 2012's Marvel's The Avengers. While there will be a brief tag scene as the credits start to roll, the producer and director wanted to let fans know ahead of time that there will not be a post-credit scene, so fans aren't waiting through the credits for nothing. However, Comic Book Movie has discovered a video that is allegedly the post-credits scene for Avengers: Age of Ultron, which may certainly be fake, but if it's authentic, it will introduce a beloved Marvel comic book character. There will be Spoilers below, so read on at your own risk.
