Avengers: Age Of Ultron Pre-Credits Battle Scene Tease

5 hours ago | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

The recent issue of Empire Magazine provides some interesting details regarding a pre-credit battle scene with the Avengers in Avengers: Age of Ultron. I'll just throw out a Spoiler Warning now for anyone not looking to learn anything else about this movie. But you clicked on the article, so you obviously are here to keep reading.

According to the report, the superhero team pays a little visit to Hydra operative Baron von Strucker, who is played by Thomas Kretschmann. He is hiding out in an East European castle and he has Loki's scepter in his possession. When talking about the sequence, director Joss Whedon described it as being a "pre-credits Bondian blow-out." 

Some big things happen there, and when it's over the superhero team is flying back to New York City in Tony Stark's quinjet, and everyone seems to be very distraught. Here's a description of what is happening in this scene, »

Colm Feore Joins Gotham As The Dollmaker

14 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Borgias alum Colm Feore is looking to continue his trend of portraying creepy characters, as he will next take residence in Gotham City to prey upon a bunch of hapless orphans. According to Deadline, Feore has joined Gotham as none other than Dr. Francis Dulmacher, who’s perhaps better known by his villainous moniker The Dollmaker.

The Dollmaker was first mentioned in the series’ second episode, “Selina Kyle,” as the man responsible for the mass kidnappings of the city’s impoverished and displaced children. There’s no word yet on when he’ll make his debut on the show, but Deadline did provide the following character description:

“With a zealotry bordering on madness, and aided by his genius-level intellect and vast medical expertise, Dr. Dulmacher pursues his demented researches, even as the bloody costs of his actions grow ever greater.”

Aaron Taylor Johnson talks Quicksilver, East-European accents and being compared to X-Men: Days of Future Past

20 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’ve already brought you the two Empire covers for Avengers: Age of Ultron, some images and a few notes from Joss Whedon talking about not directing Avengers: Infinity War and threatening to kill all of the Avengers. And now we bring you some notes from an interview with Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who will be playing Quicksilver in the movie.

“He’s very agitated because everything runs too slowly for him,” he tells Empire via Cbm. “He’s quick at everything. He’s quick to lose his temper.”

“It’s more about Pietro and Wanda together, a yin/yang where he’s very physical and very protective of her and she’s very internal and always mothering him,” he says on his relationship with Scarlet Witch, played by fellow Godzilla star Elizabeth Olsen. “Pietro doesn’t fricking trust anybody. The only one he cares for and at the end of the »

'Avengers 2' Opening Scene Revealed; Thanos Plans Teased

22 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier today, we showed you the Empire Magazine covers that feature the main cast members assembling from Avengers: Age of Ultron, the highly-anticipated Marvel Phase Two sequel that hits theaters May 1. The magazine also has a description of the sequel's opening scene, confirming a rumor from early last year that the movie will kick off with a Bond-like action sequence that finds the Avengers paying a visit to an Eastern European castle where Hydra's Baron Von Strucker (Thomas Kretschmann) has been hiding out with Loki's scepter. The sequence is described as a, "pre-credits Bondian blow-out," with the magazine also offering a detailed description of the scene that follows, where the heroes are en route to Avengers Tower for their victory celebration. This was teased in the previously-released trailers. Be warned there may be potential Spoilers below, so read on at your own risk.

Colm Feore Is The Dollmaker On "Gotham"

23 hours ago | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Colm Feore ("Chicago," "Thor") has scored the role of Batman villain The Dollmaker in Fox's prequel series "Gotham".

In this take, Feore's villain is named Dr. Francis Dulmacher, a man with a “zealotry bordering on madness, and aided by his genius-level intellect and vast medical expertise." Hints about The Dollmaker have already been placed in the series.

In the comics, he first appeared in 2011 where he cut off The Joker’s face and saw his father killed at the hand of James Gordon as a young child. He also wears his dad’s skin as a mask.

This would also seemingly put to bed talk of a shared "Arrow"/"Gotham" universe as Michael Eklund has already portrayed The Dollmaker on "Arrow".

'Gotham' Casts 'Spider-Man 2' Actor as the Dollmaker

23 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Less than a week after we reported that Red Hood is set for an appearance on Fox's Gotham, Deadline reports that yet another iconic villain will surface in Season 1, with Colm Feore signing on to play Dr. Francis Dulmacher, a.k.a. The Dollmaker. The character was referenced in the second episode by Selina Kyle (Camren Bicondova), who believes The Dollmaker is responsible for the mass kidnappings of Gotham's street children. Here's how Deadline describes the Gotham character:

"With a zealotry bordering on madness, and aided by his genius-level intellect and vast medical expertise, Dr. Dulmacher pursues his demented researches, even as the bloody costs of his actions grow ever greater."

It isn't known when exactly Colm Feore will debut on Gotham this season, but this won't be his first foray into the superhero genre. The actor most recently portrayed Donald Menken in Sony's The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and King Laufey in Marvel's Thor. »

Joss Whedon talks the fate of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in Avengers: Age of Ultron, “I f***ing kill them”

23 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

If there is one thing that Joss Whedon is famous for, it’s killing off popular characters to get a reaction from his audience. Last time round it was Agent Coulson, but who will it be this time in Avengers: Age of Ultron?

Well, in an interview Empire, Whedon clearly has deadly plans for not just one member, but the whole team.

“I f*cking kill them. All of them. I do it. Marvel don’t even realise it. When they see the final cut, they’ll be like, ‘Omigod! What are we going to do for Phase 3? We literally have no one! Except Ant-Man!’ They’re going to be so pissed.”

Of course, Whedon is kidding. Right?

Don't Expect Joss Whedon to Direct 'Avengers: Infinity War'

26 January 2015 10:27 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Joss Whedon took fan excitement from the likes of Iron Man, Thor and Captain America and turned it into something huge with The Avengers and I'm sure Avengers: Age of Ultron will be just another step in the right financial direction for the Marvel franchise of superhero films. But it seems two movies have taken a lot out of Joss as he tells Empire magazine in their latest cover story... I couldn't imagine doing this again. It's enormously hard, and it will be, by the time I would make Avengers 3 and 4, a good five years since I created anything that was completely my own. So it's very doubtful that I would take on the two-part Infinity War movie that would eat up the next four years of my life. I obviously still want to be a part of the Marvel Universe - I love these guys - but it ain't easy. »

Heroes Assembled in Empire's 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron' Cover

26 January 2015 8:41 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

We've already seen a good amount of footage from The Avengers: Age of Ultron thanks to the teaser trailer and the most recent second trailer, but one thing we haven't seen is a sweet shot of all the superheroes together. But that changes today with the cover for the latest issue of Empire. It's a Photoshopped image of them together, so it's not from the movie, but it's cool to see Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and Thor (Chris Hemsworth) standing with new characters like Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson). But no sign of Paul Bettany as The Vision yet. Look! Here's the magazine cover for The Avengers: Age of Ultron from Empire: And here's a close-up cover image of the titular villain as well: Take a closer look at the second trailer for The Avengers: Age of Ultron right here.

'Avengers 2' Magazine Covers; Joss Whedon Talks Ultron

26 January 2015 8:35 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With Avengers: Age of Ultron hitting theaters in just a few short months, the main cast members have all assembled on the cover of Empire Magazine's latest issue, including Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Captain America (Chris Evans), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson). Empire has also released a limited edition collector's cover that gives us a closer look at Ultron (James Spader). Director Joss Whedon also revealed that he is currently working on a number of Ultron scenes in post-production, joking that he has taken the villain's side, for the moment.

"I've been working on a lot of Ultron scenes, so I'm very anti-Avengers right now. You can't write someone if you don't love them and I've come to the conclusion that Ultron is right. The Avengers need to die."

Luke Evans Exits The Crow Remake

26 January 2015 6:42 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Luke Evans became attached to star in The Crow shortly after it was revealed that F. Javier Gutiérrez would be directing a reboot. However, with the filmmaker committing to a new take on The Ring horror franchise, the movie has been in limbo, with little known director Corin Hardy later being chosen by the studio to take over directing duties.

Talking to HitFix over the weekend, Evans was quoted as saying, “Right now I’m not sure where it is, I don’t know what’s happening with it. I think it’s a question probably to ask [distributor] Relativity…they’re the ones who are really holding the strings to this story and this character. But yeah, I don’t think it’s gonna be something I’m gonna be doing for a while. I’ve got about four or five different projects which I’m lining up for this year, »

New "Ultron" Pics, Whedon On "Avengers 3"

26 January 2015 5:37 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

New photos and cover art from the latest issue of Empire Magazine have given us a new look at Joss Whedon's upcoming "Avengers: Age of Ultron". Check out all the pics - including new photos of Captain America, Thor, Scarlet Witch, and Black Widow - in the gallery below.

Meanwhile, Whedon tells the magazine that he's taking a break from the Marvel Cinematic Universe after 'Ultron' is done and dusted. So, don't expect him to be back for "Avengers: Infinity War":

"I couldn't imagine doing this again. It's enormously hard, and it be, by then, a good five years since I created anything that was completely my own. So it's very doubtful that I would take on the two-part Infinity War movie that would eat up the next four years of my life. I obviously still want to be a part of the Marvel Universe - I love »

Empire Magazine

As the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron draws closer, we’re finally getting to see more and more from Joss Whedon’s highly anticipated sequel to the highest grossing superhero movie of all-time.

The latest issue of Empire Magazine offers up a look at some very cool new shots from the movie as we see Captain America (Chris Evans) and Thor (Chris Hemsworth) in action together (presumably when the team attacks Baron von Strucker’s Hydra base in the first act), a sultry looking Elizabeth Olsen as the Scarlet Witch, and the always lovely Scarlett Johansson once again reprising the role of Black Widow.

The covers meanwhile offer up both a very detailed view of Ultron and our first look at the entire team assembled. Sadly, The Vision is still missing despite the fact that he’s been seen a number of times in leaked promo art. »
