Inevitably, some spoilers for Avengers: Age Of Ultron lie ahead...
"I tried to create a suit of armor around the world," says Tony Stark, accompanied by footage of his trademark robotic arms assembling… something. It's pretty clear by this point that Ultron is the result of Tony Stark's attempt to come up with a way to protect the planet from another Chitauri-style invasion, but is this just one of the drones, or is it Ultron assembling himself?
Of course, the nature of Ultron means that there are going to be a lot of »

Blockbuster season is already visible on the horizon, and it's already been widely acknowledged that 2015's tentpole line-up is one for the ages.
Kicking off this year in style is Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age of Ultron, the follow-up to his record-breaking 2012 superhero team-up which will reunite Iron Man, Cap, Thor, Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, concluding Marvel Studios' Phase Two in the process.
Digital Spy spoke to a snowed-under but characteristically insightful Whedon on the film's set last summer, alongside other journalists. Read on for the full Q&A, in which Whedon gets into Age of Ultron's new relationships, his fear of complacency, and why this is Marvel's first bona fide superhero movie in years.

Marvel Television Black Site, California. For "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." star Chloe Bennet, the process of integration into the Marvel Universe has been gradual. Bennet's Skye started out as a hacker thorn-in-the-side of the S.H.I.E.L.D. team and, if we've being honest, a lot of fans didn't really love her. But then an interesting thing happened and Skye became an increasingly integrated S.H.I.E.L.D. agent and proved herself capable of helping save the world and that, plus a new hairstyle, helped viewers begin to embrace the character, while also wondering about her potential secrets. Well, in the "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." fall finale, Marvel enthusiasts finally discovered who Skye truly is and let's just say that the excitement has grown exponentially. Of course, casual viewers who don't know what an "Inhuman" is and don't gain any insight at »

According to Deadline, Joby Harold has written a “dark and gritty” take on the infamous character. At present no studios are interested in developing it, but Sony are planning on a Robin Hood movie and could be interested in using Harold’s script as its basis. The Sony plan is to create a shared universe type franchise based on Robin Hood characters, similar to Marvel’s superhero movies.
Disney are also working on a Robin Hood movie entitled Nottingham & Hood, but its unlikely they will be interested in Harold’s script as their vision is to be more like Pirates of the Caribbean.

Well, that didn’t take long.
As soon as it was announced that Spider-Man had joined the ranks of the Marvel Cinematic Universe due to a cross-pollination deal between Sony and Marvel, speculation was abound that there would be rumours of an appearance of the wall crawler in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
As we said, it didn’t take long.
According to speculation from various websites, the poster for Avengers: Age of Ultron (which was released on Tuesday) reveals that Danny Elfman has provided “extra music” for the film. Now the speculation goes that Danny Elfman provided music for Ang Lee’s Hulk back in 2003, but more famously wrote the score for Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2 for Sony. Could this mean he has been hired to bring back his Spider-Man score for Avengers: Age of Ultron? Check out the poster below:
Of course, this is all rumour and speculation. »

More than any other composer in the superhero genre, Hans Zimmer has been able to leave his musical stamp. Sure, John Williams composed iconic soundscapes for Superman, and Danny Elfman also has a beloved legacy with both Batman and Spider-Man (Ang Lee's Hulk movie, too). However, Hans Zimmer has written themes for all three of those superheroes, and he’s not done yet.
While chatting with MTV at the Oscars, Zimmer talked about scoring for multiple heroes in Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice. Because in addition to following up his memorable work of creating an all-American Superman sound for the 21st century on Man Of Steel, we now have new heroes that he has never worked with before, including Aquaman and Wonder Woman. Hell, for all we know, Cyborg »
Now that’s a cool poster! They’re all there. I even spot Elizabeth Olson in there as the Scarlet Witch. And there’s Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Quicksilver. Those two (who played husband and wife in last year’s Godzilla) are not listed above the title. And where’s Paul Bettany as Vision? I guess that’s him with the yellow cape. Oh well, I Can’t wait!

Despite my overwhelming excitement for Marvel’s Avengers: Age Of Ultron, and the fact I write for a film website, I’ve been avoiding most of the trailers, images and such for this second outing of the whole team but it doesn’t mean we can’t look at the new UK poster, right, right?!
Of course, Avengers: Age Of Ultron stars Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, and with the additional support of Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill. This time the team have to reassemble to defeat James Spader as Ultron, a terrifying technological villain hell-bent on human extinction.

A brand new theatrical poster has finally been released in anticipation of Avengers: Age of Ultron, and it features the whole gang, including the Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver, the Vision, as well as the titular villain's evil robot army. In addition to Idris Elba, Hayley Atwell, and Stellan Skarsgard, buried in the credits is also confirmation that Anthony Mackie will be returning as Sam Wilson, aka the Falcon, even though the Captain America: The Winter Soldier actor has denied it very recently. Furthermore, according to Badass Digest, those additional credits are cameos that will come into play during hallucination/nightmare sequences in Age of Ultron. Anyhow, as the one-sheet also reveals that four-time Oscar-nominated composer Danny Elfman, who worked on the original Hulk and Spider-Man movies, will bring "additional material" to Brian Tyler's score, what do you think?

A new, official one-sheet poster for "Avengers: Age of Ultron" is finally here, and the image is packed with lots of characters and lots of potential spoilers for the flick.
The poster, first revealed in a tweet from the official "Avengers" account, features faces both familiar and new to the franchise. Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) jostles for pole position with Captain America (Chris Evans), foreshadowing their forthcoming conflict that will fuel the third "Captain America" movie. The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) looks angrier than usual, while Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) makes a cameo. And newcomers Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) lurk in the background.

At this stage in the game, there’s no question that Joss Whedon’s Avengers: Age of Ultron will be a defining moment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Heck, we brought you the news earlier today that Robert Downey Jr. views the sequel as both “a beginning and an end” in the company’s ever-evolving roster of films.
But for Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk, Age of Ultron may just be the beginning of a larger role for the character of Bruce Banner. In a recent interview with Empire, Ruffalo touched upon the dynamic between his two on-screen personas, and how the line between budding scientist and rampaging rage monster will only continue to blur.

In less than 20 years, Marvel has risen from bankruptcy to multi-billion-dollar business. Ryan charts its rise and rise...
Just about every great comic book story has a darkest hour moment: a point in the tale where all seems lost. The heroes are on their knees, the city's a smouldering ruin and the villains are closing in for the kill. For Marvel, its darkest hour came in the winter of 1996.
A company that had grown in stature throughout the 60s, 70s and 80s thanks to the often stunning art and storytelling in such comics as Fantastic Four and The Amazing Spider-Man, Marvel's financial success had reached a peak by the early 90s. But then a series of bursting financial bubbles and questionable business deals saw Marvel's stock value collapse; shares once worth $35.75 each in 1993 had sunk to $2.375 three years later. An ugly fight between a group of very rich investors followed, »
Coinciding with the release of the first trailer for Guy Ritchie’s The Man from U.N.C.L.E., Variety is reporting that the British filmmaker has cast Eric Bana (Hulk, Deliver Us from Evil) in his next offering, Knights of the Round Table: King Arthur.
