Joss Whedon debunks Avengers: Age of Ultron post-credits scene leak

21 April 2015 7:44 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Joss Whedon has again denied that Avengers: Age of Ultron will feature a post-credits scene introducing a new character to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Speaking at today's London press conference for the blockbuster, Whedon reiterated that a supposed bootleg leak of the post-credits stinger wasn't genuine.

The scene in question sees Spider-Man pinned against a skyscraper firing off friendly banter with a window cleaner.

Advance press screenings for Avengers: Age of Ultron have featured the mid-credits scene Feige alluded to, but not a post-credits sequence with Spider-Man.

Marvel has traditionally held back its post-credits tags - such as Guardians of the Galaxy's Howard the Duck cameo - until the full theatrical release.

Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures announced in February a deal to partner up and allow Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Avengers: Age of Ultron will open in UK cinemas on April 24 and May 1 in the Us. »

Real or fake? Huge McU spoiler revealed as Avengers post-credits scene leaks

20 April 2015 4:48 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Spoilers: This article contains Avengers details some readers may wish to avoid.

A possible post-credits scene for Avengers: Age of Ultron has been leaked online.

The bootlegged clip, uploaded to YouTube yesterday (April 19), has already amassed more than 600,000 views with commenters debating whether its real or an elaborate fake.

The footage in question shows a cleaner wiping down a skyscraper window, first revealing Stark Tower on the New York skyline, then Spider-Man pressed against a wall telling the man he's "missed a spot".

Joss Whedon and Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige have previously denied that Age of Ultron will feature a post-credits scene, with the latter telling EW: "There will be a tag, but there's not a post-post-credits scene."

Whedon added: "And that's not a fake-out. We want people to know so they don't sit there for 10 minutes and then go, 'Son of a bitch! I'll kill them!'"

George Lucas Says Marvel May Remake Howard the Duck

19 April 2015 5:05 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

One of the strangest moments of "Guardians of the Galaxy" is the appearance of Howard the Duck, who is actually a Marvel character. Since then, there were lots of talks of a "Howard the Duck" remake. Now, during an interview with Stephen Colbert, George Lucas, who produced the original 1986 film, revealed that Marvel is interested in bringing the character back to the big screen. He also spoke about the challenges of bringing Howard the Duck to life. "You can't put a dwarf in a duck suit and make it work," said Lucas. "I have a feeling that Marvel is gonna redo it because of the technology we have today. The thing about art is that it's based on technology. [At the time], they said it couldn't be done, and they were right." »

George Lucas thinks another Howard the Duck movie could happen

19 April 2015 2:35 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Howard the Duck is one of Marvel’s more bizarre creations and when the original movie came out in 1986 it didn’t exactly take the box-office by storm. Speaking recently at the Tribeca Film Festival producer and co-creator George Lucas commented on the movie’s lack of success and mentioned that even the worst movies can “float up to the surface of the lake, and then they become cult classics. It means you made an interesting movie or a weird movie, and a small group of people love it.”

During the talk Lucas claimed that Howard the Duck had become such a “cult classic” that he even believes Marvel might revisit it for a feature film in the near future, which apparently got a roaring applause from the crowd in attendance. Whilst this may sound like a long-shot it’s not entirely out of the question following Howard’s short »

'Howard the Duck' Movie May Happen at Marvel Says George Lucas

18 April 2015 3:16 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

One of the funnest parts of Guardians of the Galaxy was when Howard the Duck showed up at the end for his post-credit cameo. No one was expecting it, and fans loved to see the talking space mallard return from obscurity. Ever since, there have been murmurs that Marvel might actually make a standalone Howard the Duck movie sometime in the future. Someone who absolutely agrees with that idea is producer of the original 1986 movie George Lucas.

Howard the Duck was one of the biggest bombs of the 80s. Though, it has since grown a pretty healthy cult audience. Speaking with Stephen Colbert about the calamity that was the 1986 Howard the Duck, George Lucas places all the blame on the costume, but goes onto say that he 'believes' Marvel will bring the duck back for his own solo adventure:

"You can't put a dwarf in a duck suit and make it work. »

Stephen Colbert, World's Biggest Star Wars Fan, Interviewed George Lucas and Somehow Didn't Freak Out

18 April 2015 7:12 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

As the world's largest Star Wars fan, Stephen Colbert was undoubtedly thrilled to once again get the chance to hang out with his childhood idol George Lucas on Friday. A bunch of other people were thrilled too, because Colbert wasn't interviewing Lucas in his childhood basement — the two were sharing the stage at the Borough of Manhattan Community College, as part of the Tribeca Film Festival's Tribeca Talks: Directors series. In an emotional hour-long conversation, the two spoke about the history of Star Wars, the prospects of a Howard the Duck remake, and why Lucas hasn't seen the new Force Awakens trailer yet.There's a reason the dialogue in Star Wars is so bad. As Lucas explained, he wanted the movie to be so easily understandable from its visuals that it was essentially a silent film. Does that mean, Colbert asked, that sound isn't important on film? "Sound is important, »

George Lucas Thinks Marvel Has Plans For Howard The Duck

17 April 2015 3:04 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Stephen Colbert and George Lucas are sitting opposite each other having an intense conversation. The setting is the Tribeca Film Festival. The topic is Howard the Duck. "You can.t put a dwarf in a duck suit and make it work," Lucas said. The technology, he explained just wasn.t up to snuff at the time of the 1986 original. However, with the current advances in technology, the executive producer of Howard the Duck believes Marvel is going to bring back this property and do it right.  As he told Colbert,  I have a feeling that Marvel is gonna redo it because of the technology we have today. Technically, Howard the Duck has already been introduced in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. James Gunn unveiled a CGI version of the character in the post-credits scene in Guardians of the Galaxy.

Will Marvel make a Howard the Duck film? George Lucas believes they will

17 April 2015 1:38 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Despite Howard The Duck's status as one of the worst films of all-time (although like everything I'm sure it has its fans; I once met a guy whose favourite film was Meet The Spartans. He didn't just like it, it was his favourite film) the character has enjoyed a recent resurgence with a brand new comic and a cameo in Guardians Of The Galaxy. While speaking at a Tribeca Film Festival discussion moderated by Stephen Colbert, Lucas brought up the film during conversation »

Interview with Rocket Girl’s Amy Reeder and Brandon Montclare

11 April 2015 7:13 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

 

This weekend, at East Coast Comicon, I got the chance to chat with writer Brandon Montclare (Fearsome Four) and artist Amy Reeder (Madame Xanadu) about their work, especially on their creator owned title Rocket Girl, which is published by Image Comics as well as sci-fi, action scenes, and much more. Rocket Girl is about a teen cop from the future named DaYoung Johansson, who travels back to 1980s New York to prevent an evil corporation from inventing technology to basically take over the world.

Sound on Sight: So why should readers pick up the second arc of Rocket Girl?

Amy Reeder: If you loved the first one, it’s so worth it to keep reading. We had originally planned to make our story five issues, but we were talking and realized that wasn’t enough time to tell this story. You have to develop the characters first so people can »

Avengers: Age Of Ultron Is Going In A Different Post-Credits Direction

7 April 2015 11:31 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

One of the many things Marvel is famous for is their use of post-credits scenes, which have varied from setting up future movie to comedic afterthoughts (I.m looking at you, Howard the Duck). However, Marvel is taking a different post-credits direction for next month.s Avengers: Age Of Ultron. Preceded only by 2008.s The Incredible Hulk, the May blockbuster will be the second Marvel Studios film without a scene after the credits. Director Joss Whedon told Entertainment Weekly that the reason Avengers: Age Of Ultron is not including a post-credits scene is because the production team didn.t think there was any way they could top the shawarma scene from The Avengers. According to Whedon: It didn.t seem to lend itself in the same way, and we wanted to be true to what felt right. The first rule of making a sequel is take the best moments and »

8 Comedy Films You Should Die Before You See

4 April 2015 3:53 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

From Howard The Duck to Scary Movie 5, few genres are as soul-suckingly awful as comedies gone wrong, but that’s no guarantee that Hollywood will stop making them, especially if they prove popular.

Though A Haunted House was dismissed by critics (“It’s like watching a snuff film,” commented The Austin Chronicle, “only it’s the audience who’s dying inside”), it made $60 million on a $2.5 million production budget, so a year later audiences were treated to more of the same. As the saying goes, Hollywood was just giving the audience what it wants, so if you’ve ever wondered aloud how such films could exist, don’t restrict you ire to the filmmakers.

This is by no means a recent phenomenon. In 1985, Leonard Maltin gave his shortest ever review when discussing another bungled comedy: “Transylvania 6-5000 stank. I’m Leonard Maltin, Entertainment Tonight.” The picture not only made its money back, »

'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles': Untold Story of the Movie "Every Studio in Hollywood" Rejected

2 April 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

In 1988, comic book movies were considered box-office poison. The stink of flop Howard the Duck was still pungent in the air, Superman IV: The Quest for Peace had just sentenced the Man of Steel to movie jail and Tim Burton's Batman was still a year away from revolutionizing the genre. So it's no surprise every major studio in Hollywood turned up their noses at a movie about four talking turtles who do Ninjitsu, eat pizza and live in the sewers beneath New York. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles survived script fights, horrific-to-wear 70-pound costumes, and a

‘Divinity’ #2 questions the desires of humanity

Divinity has yet to answer the ultimate question posed from issue #1. What exactly happened to Abram Adams after spending all this time in space?

Comic Book Review – Howard the Duck #1

Luke Owen reviews Howard the Duck #1…

Howard the Duck is back! Join him as he takes on the weird cases that only a talking duck can crack as the Marvel Universe’s resident private investigator! Let Chip Zdarsky and Joe Quinones guide you through his new world as he takes on the Black Cat and mysterious forces from outer space! Waugh!

Howard the Duck. He’s a character always on the outskirts of popularity within the Marvel Universe. Best known for the under-appreciated big screen flop from George Lucas and a recent fleeting appearance in James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy, Howard the Duck isn’t particularly known for his comic book tales. He’s never had a Spider-Man No More or a Days of Future Past, but he’s always been around. Can this new series from Chip Zdarsky and Joe Quinones help him rise to prominence »
