Last week, Hot Toys debuted a first look at their Iron Man figure from Avengers: Age of Ultron, showing Tony Stark in his Mark Xliii Armor. The figure is incredibly detailed, with the photos giving us a pretty great idea of what the Mark 43 suit will look like on the big screen. Now, Hot Toys has debuted more from their Avengers 2 lineup, offering a sneak peek at Hawkeye, Captain America, Black Widow and Thor in their new costumes. We also get a more detailed look at Hulkbuster and Thanos.
Hot Toys debuted the new lineup of figure at the Toy Soul 2014 Expo this weekend. And as you can see in the tweets below, these toys bring a great idea of what we can expect to see from these main characters in 2015. We also get a look at the Hulk, who pretty much looks exactly like he did in Marvel's The Avengers. »
Entertainment Weekly says Favreau has described the film as "not a musical" but "wanted to work in the more memorable moments from the '67 film".
When asked if that would include classic 'The Bare Necessities', he added: "Oh, yeah! How do you not do that?"
The live-action film is currently being shot with Christopher Walken, Idris Elba and Ben Kingsley lending their voices respectively as orangutan King Louie, villainous tiger Shere Khan and panther Bagheera.
They will all provide motion capture and voices for CG animals with 10-year-old Neel Sethi appearing as himself on-screen as Mowgli. »

The filmmaker said that he tried and failed to distance himself from Marvel Studios' sequel.
"I actually didn't want to make the film," he told Comics Alliance. "I was ragged from the first one, and so I just turned off my brain.
"I was like, 'Do not think of cool ideas for the next one. Just get through this'."
However, Whedon failed at this attempt, recalling: "I went to a pub, and sat down with my notebook, and about 45 minutes later, my notebook was filled.
"I have so many things to say, and I was... I was kind of surprised. It was very beautiful."
The Avengers sequel will reunite Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr), Captain America (Chris Evans), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) against »

After jumping in the water first and making such a big splash with the first Iron Man film, it seemed like Jon Favreau was forced to awkwardly tread the same same water in Iron Man 2 so as to not swim too far ahead of the origin films for Captain America and Thor, which were a solid year or more away. The stakes didn’t seem high enough, and all the groundwork being laid for the eventual Avengers team up just wasn’t as fun as it could have been. Even though Iron Man 2 had its missteps — pretty much everyone involved in the making of that film, including Favreau and Robert Downey, Jr., have acknowledged its flaws — it had some extraordinary set pieces and very iconic imagery. Who granted Mickey Rourke’s requests to do scenes in his underwear? Yeah, that was Favs. But who made a scene involving »

Rudyard Kipling’s classic tales of an Indian boy raised by wolves, first published as a series in the late 19th century, has been adapted more than a dozen times. But Walt Disney’s 1967 animated musical—his last—set the gold standard. Now, director Jon Favreau (Iron Man) is giving Mowgli and his animal pals a 21st-century tech update. Newcomer Neel Sethi, 10, plays Mowgli, and there’s a lot riding on those young shoulders. Not only does he do his own tree-climbing—”A 10-year-old in a loin cloth is hard to double with a stuntman,” Favreau says— but he’s »

While some celebrities are still just letting their bump do the talking (we're looking at you Jessica Biel), a number of stars this year got creative with how they announced their baby news!
Photos: Stars Share Pics of Their Adorable Tots
6. Robert Downey, Jr. and wife Susan Downey: Leave it to the Iron Man star to use wit when telling the world he's going to be a dad for the third time. "Um. I don't know if it's a 'man's world', but I'm certain women run it," he shared on Facebook in July. "Susan and I are therefore delighted to announce we are expecting a baby. Girl. November."

Susan gave birth to a baby girl in early November as expected, and that announcement was just as adorable. "Yep…Avri Roel »
Welcome To Issue 76!
If This Is Your First Time Here: Welcome! This is my weekly column where I talk about superhero movie news, rumors and speculation.
This Week: A mostly hack-free column (one link in there, but I get it out of the way quick)! First we update on the Spider-Man deal, then we talk through the plot of Avengers: Age of Ultron assuming the new Lego sets aren't lying to us.
Lots going on in the Marvel Universe this week, or at least the perception that there is a lot going on, because some set visit interviews from Avengers: Age of Ultron solidified some rumored plot developments and a Lego set for the film does what Lego sets do: have us wondering if we’re being sold cool brick guys or being told about the progression of action scenes in the film.
Then, there’s Spider-Man.

There’s less than five months to go before Marvel brings the curtain down on Phase Two of the Cinematic Universe with Avengers: Age of Ultron, and the director has been speaking in depth to IGN about the hotly-anticipated sequel, including expanding the world of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes with the introduction of new characters like The Vision, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, and of course the AI villain Ultron.
” I wanted Paul [Bettany] to play this part since before I wanted to make Avengers movies,” states Whedon on The Vision. “He’s just got, let’s face it, it’s about cheek bones, people… Before I took the first job, I said, ‘Well, I don’t know if I’m right for this, or if I want it, or you want me, but in the second one, the villain has to be Ultron, and he has to create the Vision.’ And »

Over the years, Marvel has done a ton of crossover comics, one of the most recent was The Avengers and Attack on Titan. It was short, but it was really freakin' cool. Affter doing a little research I came across six Marvel crossover comics that were ridiculous. The comic book publisher sure has some doozies over the years. Most of them offer some good, fun entertainment, while others simply sucked. Check out the list below:
Eminem/Punisher - Kill You
In 2009, Frank Castle and Marshall Mathers team up after the Punisher kills a bunch of Eminem’s bodyguards over a misunderstanding. After a concert, Punisher stops the limo from leaving so Slim-Shady and his entourage get out angrily to make him get out of the way. So what does Punisher do? He just automatically opens fire, killing many of them. After Eminem pistol whips Punisher, and an assassin named Barracuda »

When Joss Whedon’s Avengers: Age of Ultron was filming in London last summer, I got to visit the set along with a few other reporters. Like most Marvel set visits, they let us talk to the entire cast and watch filming. While the production was guarded about what they were willing to tell us, we learned a ton of cool secrets behind what’s bound to be one of the biggest films of 2015. In The Avengers sequel, Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) reunite to stop Ultron (James Spader) from carrying out his sinister plan. The film also stars Elizabeth Olsen, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Paul Bettany, Don Cheadle,Andy Serkis, and Samuel L. Jackson. While on set, I participated in a great group interview with Joss Whedon. He talked about how making The Avengers »

Shepperton Studios, Middlesex - Joss Whedon looked tired. And not just a little tired, either. He looked weary, deep down in his bones tired. He looked like he was ready to just fall down where he was and sleep for a week. I've seen a number of other directors in this state and it's always when they're near the end of production on one of these mega-movies. The pressure that's on these guys in enormous, and for Whedon, following up one of the biggest films of all time can't be easy. We sat in a small group facing Whedon in the Tony Stark lab, part of the Avengers Tower set, and asked him what his primary goal was walking into the sequel. "On the first one, I was a raggedy man when I made that film. It did take a lot out of me. Going in this time, I was like… »

Last week, emails from the Sony hack revealed that Marvel Studios was trying to obtain the rights to Spider-Man, so they could include the character in the highly-anticipated Phase Three adventure Captain America: Civil War. Later that day, another report revealed that deal may still be on the table, and yet another report claimed that Marvel wants to reboot Spidey entirely, which would involve getting rid of current star Andrew Garfield. Today, a new report from Badass Digest reveals that Marvel is currently moving forward on Captain America: Civil War without the web-slinger, for now.
The site notes that there is also the possibility of a cameo or an end credits stinger, since we have nearly a year and a half to go before Captain America 3 hits theaters. Marvel always builds reshoots into their films' schedules, but as it stands right now, Peter Parker will not play a major »

"Users first start by registering as a recruit," producer Mike Bundlie explains. "Once they’ve registered, they get access to information that would otherwise be top secret.” From there, they will fight alongside the likes of Spider-Man and Iron Man in an epic battle against villains Red Skull, M.O.D.O.K. and an army of evil Adaptoids.

A large photo of the merchandising tie-in Lego sets for Marvel's "Avengers: Age of Ultron" has gone online and in the process seems to reveal some big moments in the film and which characters will be involved in some key action sequences.
Of course, the shot may be purely for promotional purposes only and don't expect each of the scenarios depicted to be an actual moment from the film. The photo does seem to suggest the following possibilities and setups though:
The Iron Man Hulkbuster vs. Hulk fight seen in the trailer also appears to involve Scarlett Witch (Elisabeth Olson), and Hulk restrained in some kind of device.
An action sequence at a Hydra castle base in Europe where Hulk takes on a tank whilst Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) is charging at him. At the same time Captain America takes on Baron von Strucker (Thomas Kretschmann) who has Loki's scepter. There »

While Avengers: Age of Ultron will bring back some of Marvel's biggest heroes on screen, together first the first time since Marvel's The Avengers, including Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Captain America and Hawkeye, there is one character that fans have gotten more and more excited about with each new appearance. While not necessarily a superhero, S.H.I.E.L.D. agent-turned-Stark employee Maria Hill has become a valuable utility player in the McU, and star Cobie Smulders's has been able to continually bring something new to her performance. That path continues in Avengers 2.
Cobie Smulders recently chatted with EW about her latest turn as Maria Hill. She offers insight into the evolution of this popular character. She also praises the fact that more and more woman are bing introduced into these movies.
