'Avengers 2' Character Relationships and Story Explained

13 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

There's quite a bit that we already know when it comes to the story and characters of Avengers: Age of Ultron. But there is even more that we don't know, as evidenced in a new article recently published by Digital Spy, who visited the set and came back with a whole lot of new information. There are some pretty big Spoilers revealed in terms of characters, their relationships with one another, and the main storyline below. Continue ahead only if you want to know more than what the trailers have shown us thus far.

We know that Avengers: Age of Ultron will find our team of heroes battling the title villain, a sentient robot determined to wipe out the human race. While on set, Digital Spy was able to talk with quite a few members of the cast, the director Joss Whedon, and producer Jeremy Latcham. He is the first to offer information, »

Long Voyage Home: "Blackhat" & Revolutions of the Digital Image

13 hours ago | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

It has been about six months since my last entry in this supposedly regular column. There are various excuses I could make as to why, but rather than dwell on the past, I'd like to usher this "Long Voyage Home" onward into the future, in the trailblazing spirit of Michael Mann. I couldn't avoid writing on Blackhat, a film that I found as viscerally and formally thrilling as anything I've seen at the cinema in recent memory (and that includes Jean-Luc Godard's Adieu au langage). I've seen it three times and plan to see it at least once more on the big screen before its (likely brief, considering its box office numbers) run ends. It has taken me multiple viewings to get closer to understanding all of Blackhat's moving parts, a journey in itself that I eagerly plan to continue.

Chris Hemsworth Talks Briefly About Thor: Ragnarok

22 hours ago | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

It's been four months since Marvel Studios had announced Thor: Ragnarok, among "Phase Three" movies, at the special press event in L.A., but  Chris Hemsworth has finally discussed the 2017 threequel during a Blackhat interview. When Digital Spy asked if certain events in this summer's Avengers: Age of Ultron will have an impact on the God of Thunder's return in Ragnarok, the Aussie actor reassured... they will. "Yeah, definitely... they have to, don't they?" he asked, laughing. "No [I can't give away any hints], but I will say there is no script for the next Thor. So, I have no idea where we're going to end up, but it's pretty big... this one." Anyhow, when it was announced that Thor: Ragnarok will be released on July 28, 2017, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige had teased that the threequel will not only be "very important" to the "Phase Three" as a whole, but it will also »

25 things we learned on the set of Avengers: Age of Ultron

31 January 2015 1:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Marvel withdrawal is making the short, dark winter days just that bit more grim – it's now been six months since Guardians of the Galaxy arrived to brighten up our summers, and three months feels like a long time still to wait for The Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Digital Spy visited the set of Joss Whedon's sequel last summer, and spoke to the man himself along with Mark 'Hulk' Ruffalo, Chris 'Thor' Hemsworth, and new recruits Aaron 'Quicksilver' Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth 'Scarlet Witch' Olsen.

Below are 25 of the key things we learned from our day on set.

1. The Science Bros are causing trouble. "Banner's been living in Stark Tower, and [he and Tony] have been working side by side," Mark Ruffalo shares. "Banner has his own lab now, he's doing work that augments Tony's work, that could lead to a horrible experiment going wrong…"

2. Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye will have a »

Get a New Look at Avengers: Age of Ultron in the Movie's First TV Spot

30 January 2015 4:15 PM, PST | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

There's a brand-new TV spot for Avengers: Age of Ultron! It aired during Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. this week, and now you can watch it below. Thanks to previous trailers, we fully accept new villain Ultron (voiced by James Spader) as pretty terrifying. He wants to destroy the Avengers and eventually, like everything. If you take a look at the full trailer below, you'll see some of the more interesting scenes come when Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) have a moment - a relationship that Ruffalo alluded to in our interview - and beyond that, well, there's just way more Hulk (which Joss Whedon has mentioned). Of course, the real must-see scene here is the epic battle between the Hulk and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), who's in some kind of mega Iron Man suit. Start geeking out now! Watch also for other characters Thor (Chris Hemsworth »

Joss Whedon clarifies his “sexism” comments about Marvel

30 January 2015 8:26 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last year, Digital Spy interviewed director Joss Whedon on the set of Avengers: Age of Ultron about his thoughts on the Marvel Cinematic Universe and its lack of diversity. In the interview, Whedon said that it was “sexism” and “quiet misogyny” that was holding Marvel back from pulling the trigger on female-led superhero movies in particular. The interview was posted in full earlier this week.

In the months since his comments were initially made, Marvel have announced Captain Marvel and Black Panther for Phase Three, which has promoted Whedon to clarify his Digital Spy comments.

“I just thought, I sounded very harsh,” Whedon told Buzzfeed. “And then [Marvel announced], ‘We’re going to make Captain Marvel. We’re going to make Black Panther. We’re going to shake it up.’ I was just like, great! Now I just sound mean and bitter. But, you know, there’s a lot to be mean and bitter about. »

Elizabeth Olsen talks Scarlet Witch role in Avengers: Age of Ultron

30 January 2015 3:19 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

One of the newest additions to the Avengers roster this year is Scarlet Witch, played by Elizabeth Olsen. The actress recently spoke to Empire magazine and gave a few details about her character’s powers and origins in the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron.

She first talked about her approach to creating a unique version of the character: “The coolest thing about Scarlet Witch is, because you’ve never seen her, we got to create how she moves. Joss was really inspired by dancers, and so he knew that he wanted to change visually how she moves, to be more like a dancer than a fighter. I didn’t really have to do much stunt training. Instead I trained with a dancer, Jenny White, which was its own kid of soreness, but it wasn’t what I thought it would be.”

New Avengers: Age Of Ultron TV Spot

30 January 2015 1:38 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

It might not be receiving the Super Bowl TV spot treatment, but Marvel has made sure we’re all still anticipating Avengers: Age Of Ultron with a new ad. Cue the heroes squabbling and the robotic drones causing havoc…There is a lot here that we’ve seen in previous trailers, but some of those moments are expanded upon and you’ll find plenty of new footage lurking within the relatively short trail.Among the highlights this time? Plenty of mystery about a strange medical procedure, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) accusing Tony (Robert Downey Jr.) of meddling in things he doesn’t understand, more Hulk versus Hulkbuster action and James Spader’s technological terror Ultron threatening to tear the team apart from the inside. And if the growing tension between them present here is any indication, he might just succeed...With Scarlett Johansson, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Samuel L. Jackson, »

The next solo "Thor" movie in the 'Marvel Cinematic Universe", titled "Thor: Ragnarok", will see the return of Chris Hemsworth as 'Thor' and Tom Hiddleston as 'Loki', on a quest to save 'Asgard' from an apocalyptic event called 'Ragnarok', stoked by the fire demon 'Surtur':

According to other reports, 'Amora' the 'Enchantress' and the executioner 'Scourge' will also appear in the new film, with Enchantress as a love interest for Loki. 'Balder' and 'Beta Ray Bill' will appear and partner with Thor to defeat Surtur.

"...'The Tree of Yggdrasil' will be the start of 'Ragnarok'. Loki may cause Ragnarok by disturbing Surtur the fire demon, and frame Thor by lying to 'Asgardians' to think that Thor had killed his father 'Odin'.

Who is the Female Thor?

29 January 2015 5:25 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Last summer, Marvel made the stunning announcement that Thor was getting a makeover… into a woman. The internet cried out with reactions ranging from sheer horror to total female empowerment. No one was really certain how the change was going to happen until the comics hit shelves in September. Since then, three issues have published–with issue number four due this Wednesday–and the newest origin story has been revealed. - Spoiler alert for those who have not yet read issues 1 through 3. - The Thor readers know and love has not gone away. He has, however, become unworthy of wielding his hammer, Mjolnir. Upon Odin’s return to Asgard, where his wife and Thor’s mother Freyja has been ruling in his absence. Odin is ready to ascend back into power, forcing Freyja to step back down to his side, a step she is unwilling to take after having ruled on her own. »
