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. The Avengers: Age of Ultron is »

'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 »

New Avengers: Age Of Ultron Empire Magazine Covers And Stills

26 January 2015 5:26 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

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. »

"Blackhat" - 'The Good, The Bad and The Ugly'

25 January 2015 8:47 PM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

From The Good The Bad And The Ugly.Ca,  Sneak Peek 'the good, the bad and the ugly' in director Michael Mann's new thriller "Blackhat", starring Chris Hemsworth, Wei Tang and Viola Davis:

Michael Stevens For 'The Good':

"In director Michael Mann's "Blackhat", furloughed convict 'Nick Hathaway' (Hemsworth) with American and Chinese partners, hunts down a high-level cybercrime network connecting Chicago, Los Angeles, Hong Kong and Jakarta.

"Mann delights in exploring CG 'digital trails', plunging into physical networks, following power surges while mapping out a glowing high-tech world, in contrast to the grimy digs used by a sweaty, terrorist hacker.

"Thor" actor Hemsworth, looking every inch an action star, knows how to use a gun (as opposed to a hammer) and effortlessly takes out gaggles of baddies, using 'MacGyver'-like prison smarts to street-fight his way out of confrontations.

"Actress Wei Tang as 'Chen Lien', is also good, »

Music and Sex: Scenes from a life - A novel in progress by Roman AkLeff (first installment can be read here; second here (the last paragraph of which was moved into this part).

After the show, Walter took Norman to the West End, where Norman marveled at the broad beer selection. As they slowly worked their way through a small percentage of the fifty-plus on offer, Walter lamented how inferior college was making him feel.

"Screw that," rejoined Norman. "Just have fun and keep learning and next year's freshmen will feel inferior to you. If you already knew everything, you wouldn't have to go to college in the first place. Don't tell me about that, tell me about all the cool stuff you've been doing."

"Well, during orientation there was a great band playing outside for free called So What. I know you're not that into fusion, but they were hot. »

The fantasist: The comic art of Woody Allen

24 January 2015 12:49 PM, PST | The Moving Arts Journal | See recent The Moving Arts Journal news »

Everyone knows Woody Allen. At least, everyone thinks they know Woody Allen. His plumage is easily identifiable: horn-rimmed glasses, baggy suit, wispy hair, kvetching demeanor, ironic sense of humor, acute fear of death. As is his habitat: New York City, though recently he has flown as far afield as London, Barcelona, and Paris. His likes are well known: Bergman, Dostoevsky, New Orleans jazz. So too his dislikes: spiders, cars, nature, Wagner records, the entire city of Los Angeles. Whether or not these traits represent the true Allen, who’s to say? It is impossible to tell, with Allen, where cinema ends and life begins, an obfuscation he readily encourages. In the late nineteen-seventies, disillusioned with the comedic success he’d found making such films as Sleeper (1973), Love and Death (1975), and Annie Hall (1977), he turned for darker territory with Stardust Memories (1980), a film in which, none too surprisingly, he plays a »

Andy Serkis’ Avengers: Age of Ultron character details revealed?

23 January 2015 3:33 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Since the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer arrived a few months ago, there’s been a lot of speculation that Andy Serkis will be playing the Black Panther villain, Ulysses Klaw. This has now seemingly been confirmed, with Schmoes Know reporting that Serkis will indeed portray Klaw, as well as offering up some details about the character.

According to the site, the Marvel Cinematic Universe version is an amalgamation of Ulysses Klaw and his father Fritz Klae. In the comics Klae was an antagonist for the Howling Comandos in World War II, as well as being allies with Baron Von Strucker who appears in Age of Ultron, played by Thomas Kretschmann. The source claims “Fritz could possibly have a small appearance in the film or a passing reference, but most of his attributes will be given to Serkis’ Klaw.”

Paul Bettany teases Avengers: Age of Ultron’s “enormous” scale

23 January 2015 2:26 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Paul Bettany, who has played Tony Stark’s A.I. butler J.A.R.V.I.S. multiple times in the Marvel cinematic universe, will be showing up in the flesh for Avengers: Age of Ultron, as popular character and android The Vision. We still know very little about his role, and have yet to see him in any of the footage that’s been released, but judging by these new comments, Bettany will be involved in some pretty big action scenes.

Bettany spoke with RadioTimes.com, and teased Age of Ultron‘s massive scale:

“I’ve never been on a bigger set on my entire life than in The Avengers {Age of Ultron]. One [part] seemed to be the corner of a town, with helicopter cameras, and drone cameras flying about. I just haven’t seen anything that big, so it was like being a kid on a film set again. »
