Thor: The Dark World Revisited: “This Is Not of Earth”

2 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

[With Avengers: Age of Ultron opening on Friday, I’m taking a look back at the Marvel Cinematic Universe.  These articles do not contain spoilers for unreleased Marvel movies. If you know any spoilers about the unreleased Marvel movies, please do not post them in the comments section.] If Iron Man 3 is a break from the McU, then Thor: The Dark World is getting back to work. This time, Marvel had the freedom to expand on the character since audiences liked Thor (Chris Hemsworth), they understood how his world worked, and they wanted to see more. In terms of pushing audiences into more sci-fi, the second Thor is terrific and features plenty of great production design, costumes, and inter-dimensional hopping that may rest upon a weak plot, but still provides plenty of entertainment. Thor: The Dark World repeats the first film by creating a new, scary “other”. This time, instead of Laufey and the Frost Giants, it’s Malekith (Christopher Eccleston) and the Dark Elves. Like Thor, we start with Odin providing a prologue about how this one race was bad but “the noble forces of Asgard” saved the day. The movie doesn’t really explain who »

Watch: 'Sesame Street' Adds Veggies to 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron'

3 hours ago | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Earlier this year, during the heart of awards season, "Sesame Street" had some fun by parodying Birdman with the help of Big Bird. Now that it's blockbuster season, the children's television workshop is back with another Crumby Pictures production that has a new spin on The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Instead of an assembly of Captain America, Iron Man, Thor and the usual heroes, this team is powered by vegetables to make The Aveggies: Age of Bon Bon. The citizens of the city are having their vegetables ruined by sweets, and only The Aveggies, composed of Onion Man and Captain Americauliflower can stop the chaos. Here's the "Sesame Street" parody of The Avengers: Age of Ultron from YouTube: You can still watch the latest trailer for The Avengers: Age of Ultron right here. The Avengers: Age of Ultron is written & directed by Joss Whedon (The Avengers, Serenity). Earth's mightiest heroes »

John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein Talk Vacation, Paying Homage to the Original

4 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

If you’d have told me before arriving at CinemaCon that one of the films I’d be raving about after the convention would be the new Vacationmovie, I would not have believed you. But after watching the insanely funny red-band trailer for the upcoming comedy during the Warner Bros. panel (which will be online in early May), I’m completely sold. If you’re not aware, Vacation marks the directorial debut of Horrible Bosses scribes John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein and stars Ed Helms as a grown up Rusty Griswold, who opts to take his own family on a vacation that goes horribly wrong. Christina Applegate  plays Rusty’s wife, Leslie Mann is his sister Audrey, and Chris Hemsworth plays Audrey’s up-and-coming anchorman husband, marking the Thor actor’s first big foray into comedy. Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo also make cameos reprising their roles as the elder Griswolds. »

7 hours ago | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

As we prepare to enter into battle with the old gang – Iron Man, Black Widow, Captain America, Hulk, Hawkeye, and Thor – in The Avengers: Age of Ultron, we’re putting you to the test to see how well you know their alter egos, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johnasson, Chris EvansMark RuffaloJeremy Renner, and Chris Hemsworth.  With two new recruits along for the ride in the form of Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), The Avengers: Age of Ultron promises to be one non-stop thrill ride as the team battles their new enemy, Ultron (James Spader) in Joss Whedon's latest film.

'Age of Ultron' Review: Blockbuster Sequel Offers More of Same to Satisfy Global Audiences' Appetite

19 hours ago | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Avengers: Age of Ultron': Chris Evans as Captain America and Chris Hemsworth as Thor 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' review: More of same in 'The Avengers' gargantuan sequel Someday somebody's going to make a superhero tentpole movie that doesn't involve the fate of the world or lay waste to vast chunks of God's green earth. Writer/director Joss Whedon, he of the numbingly gargantuan action sequence, is not that somebody. And yet to blame him for not following up 2012's The Avengers, the third highest grossing film ever made, with My Dinner with Thor is not realistic. It would also be a shame. Whedon, by any fair accounting, marshaled enormous reserves of wit and flair to slam-dunk the first film, a mighty achievement considering he needed to establish the Avengers series as the all-important sun around which an entire solar system of individual comic book properties would revolve. For the inevitable round two, »

Joss Whedon interested in directing a DC movie

26 April 2015 11:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We know that Joss Whedon has decided to call time on his Marvel exploits with Avengers: Age of Ultron, having decided to hand over the reins on the Avengers franchise to Captain America: The Winter Soldier directors Anthony and Joe Russo for Avengers: Infinity War, but it seems he still has ambitions in the superhero genre, with the filmmaker telling IGN that he’d like to take a crack at a DC movie.

“I’d be like ‘I have all these joke ideas.’ And they’d be like ‘No, we don’t do that here.’ I desperately wanted to do a Batman film – who doesn’t? And I wanted to do Wonder Woman. I was a Marvel kid growing up, but I was always DC-curious. And I see myself on the spectrum in between.”

Whedon did spend several years developing a Wonder Woman movie for Warner Bros. [you can take a look at the 2005 Comic-Con poster here], and he was »

"Ultron" Gets Extended Cut, Alternate Ending?

25 April 2015 5:02 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

With a runtime shorter than the original by one minute, but a whole lot more characters and subplots in the mix, it's understandable that some of the reviews for Marvel's "Avengers: Age of Ultron" have complained about certain sequences and characters within the film being shortchanged.

Joss Whedon previously confirmed that his first cut of the film clocked in at around half an hour longer than the final film version, and the movie's trailers certainly include shots that did not make the final theatrical cut - most notably from the Thor cave sequence.

Today, Collider reports that an e-mail sent by Amazon's UK branch about pre-ordering the home release version of the film has confirmed that the DVD and Blu-ray (and likely digital HD) cuts of the film will not only be an 'extended edition', but will also include an alternate ending.

Avengers: Age of Ultron Blu-ray to include extended edition and alternate ending

25 April 2015 10:22 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It only just opened in the UK this past Thursday – and is yet to even hit screens in the States – but Amazon is already offering us the chance to pre-order Avengers: Age of Ultron on Blu-ray, and if its product description is any indication, the home entertainment release will include an extended version of the movie, as well as an alternate ending…

Joss Whedon’s original cut of the movie ran for some three hours in length, but just last week the filmmaker warned us not to expect a Director’s Cut of the movie, although he did promise plenty of deleted scenes on the Blu-ray and DVD release. So, this news is certainly surprising, and we should probably wait until we hear something from Marvel before taking this as gospel…

Aaron Taylor-Johnson Says Avengers: Age of Ultron Cast Is Like ''Family,'' But Did He Endure ''Initiation Tests''?

25 April 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Joining one of the most popular film franchises in the world must be daunting. Indeed, for Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who plays Pietro Maximoff/Quicksilver in Marvel Studios' Avengers: Age of Ultron, it was "super surreal and overwhelming...but it's been great." "Stepping on set with these guys, it feels like a real family," he told E! News' Alicia Quarles during an exclusive set visit in London last year. "A bunch of them already, it's like their fifth movie." The sequel brings back the star-studded cast, including Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Samuel L.

Second Opinion – Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)

25 April 2015 4:12 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Avengers: Age of Ultron, 2015.

Written and directed by Joss Whedon.

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.

Synopsis:

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.

I looked back at my review of The Avengers from 2012 and the opening paragraph struck me as one which I’d never consider writing now;

“Firstly, I love films based on comic book characters and I enjoy many summer blockbusters, so I cannot complain that I wasn’t part of The Avengers’ target audience. Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2, Batman, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, X-2, X-Men: First Class, »
