Hayley Atwell Has Role In Avengers: Age Of Ultron, Plus Joss Whedon Talks About Movie’s “Darker, Weirder, Tougher World”

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

Though her Marvel character Peggy Carter, a love interest for Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) in the WWII-set Captain America: The Winter Soldier, had of course aged into an old woman by the time Cap was thawed out of the ice and tasked with saving the world twice more in The Avengers and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Hayley Atwell isn’t done with the Marvel Cinematic Universe yet. She’s toplining the ABC series Marvel’s Agent Carter, which will replace Marvel’s Agents of Shield at midseason, and it turns out that Atwell will be stopping in for a cameo in Avengers: Age of Ultron as well.

Funnily enough, Atwell has a night on the town with director Joss Whedon to thank for her Age of Ultron role:

“We went out drinking one night and he was like, ‘You know, it would be great to write something for you. »

Marvel Will End Each Phase with an 'Avengers' Sequel

4 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Over the weekend, I had the chance to sit down with Marvel Studios president and uber-producer Kevin Feige, the architect behind the enormously successful Marvel Cinematic Universe, to discuss Guardians of the Galaxy, which hits theaters on August 1. While you can check back for the full interview next week, the producer shared new details about Marvel's release strategy, how close they are to casting Doctor Strange and how they plan on ending each Phase with an Avengers sequel.

Marvel's highly successful Phase One culminated with the release of Marvel's The Avengers, and Phase Two is no different, coming to a close next year with Avengers: Age of Ultron. With Phase Three just around the corner, Ant-Man (July 17, 2015), Captain America 3 (May 6, 2016) and Doctor Strange have been confirmed, with The Avengers 3 almost certain to close out the phase. I asked Kevin Feige if they still plan on ending each of their future phases with Avengers sequels, »

"Ultron" Updates: Tone, Hulk, Peggy, Quicksilver

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

Mark Ruffalo recently spoke about the upcoming "Avengers: Age of Ultron" during some downtime, telling USA Today that the scale is bigger and the tone is darker than its predecessor. Ruffalo says:

"Joss [Whedon] is in his full height of his powers. This movie is much more sprawling and epic than the first one. They’re really in an existential, dire crisis. It has a darker quality. The Avengers are really struggling with their own shortcomings and the dissolution of S.H.I.E.L.D. and where they go and who they are in the world. There’s a lot of negativity towards them."

Ruffalo also went into a bit of detail about his character, telling EW that age is having an impact on the development of Bruce Banner:

"I think they set it up nicely now that Banner’s turning 46 years old, and there comes a point where it »

Joss Whedon Absolutely Hated The Original Draft For The Avengers

5 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

You know you.ve officially arrived in Hollywood when a biography is being written about you, and if that.s truly the case then Joss Whedon has finally made it. Officially. Joss Whedon: The Biography is set to hit bookstores on August 1st, and among the stories it contains is a detailed account of circumstances that Whedon entered into while working on The Avengers. The interesting part of the whole scenario is reading how harshly Whedon panned the pre-existing Zak Penn draft that was in play before he decided to re-write it. Business Insider tells the story of how the man behind Firefly and Buffy The Vampire Slayer was brought in for consideration by Kevin Feige, only to tell him that he would only direct the film if he could also re-write the film from the ground up. Joss Whedon put it as bluntly as humanly possible: "I don't »

Lucy Lawless Joining ‘Marvel's Agents of Shield’

7 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

It looks like Lucy Lawless will be featured in the sophomore season of “Marvel's Agents of Shield.” The hot heroine who spent most of the '90s racking up fan cred as “Xena: Warrior Princess” will be featured in ABC's equally geeky Marvel spin-off, according to TV Guide, but the nature and extent of her role is still unknown. Also read: ABC Renews ‘Agents of Shield,’ Goldbergs,’ ‘Modern Family'; Orders ‘Marvel's Agent Carter,’ ‘Forever,’ ‘Selfie’ “Shield,” a TV spin-off based around Clark Gregg‘s Agent Coulson character from several of the recent Marvel movies including “The Avengers” and “Iron Man, »

Kevin Feige Talks 'Doctor Strange' and The Avengers

8 hours ago | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Kevin Feige was taking with IGN, and answered done questions about Scott Derrickson's Doctor Strange film. 

Here's what Feige had to say:

"It does make sense [to have standalone franchises], but I don't think it makes sense for this character, who has clearly woven in and out of that stuff [The Avengers] in the comics."We have a template. There's a template for everything we do, which are the comics. Strange goes back and forth. Guardians less so, actually, until recently. But if there's a character like that who clearly interweaves over the course of many stories, I find no reason to go, 'We're not going to do that in the movies. We're going to keep him in his own movies.' So there's always the potential for it [Strange to join The Avengers]."

What about casting Doctor Strange? Will there be an announcement in San Diego this weekend?

"I don't know if it'll be as quick as [this] Saturday," Feige said. »

Talking With Scarlett Johansson About Lucy, Sandwiches, and Playing Non-Humans

10 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Over the last several years, Scarlett Johansson's output has been impressive in its variety: The Avengers, Hitchcock, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof on Broadway, Don Jon, Her, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Under the Skin. This weekend, she stars in the Luc Besson–directed action movie Lucy as a drug mule who finds herself able to access increasingly large portions of her brain's capacity. Vulture spoke with Johansson about playing hyperintelligent beings, avoiding her own acting tics, and her favorite sandwich. The first question I like to ask everyone I interview is: Why this movie now? Why this movie now? [Laughs.] That’s interesting. When I first met Luc, I was doing a Tennessee Williams play that was visceral and raw and this project seemed so abstract. It was challenging in a different way because the character is in this constant state of transition and struggles to hold »

'Avengers 2' Creates an Existential Crisis for Its Heroes

19 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

As production continues on Avengers: Age of Ultron, we still don't have too many confirmed story details regarding this highly-anticipated Marvel Phase Two sequel. Mark Ruffalo, who plays Bruce Banner and The Incredible Hulk, recently teased that Joss Whedon is at the top of his game, and that the Avengers are dealing with a lot of widespread hatred towards them after S.H.I.E.L.D. came crumbling down.

"Joss [Whedon] is in his full height of his powers. This movie is much more sprawling and epic than the first one. They're really in an existential, dire crisis. It has a darker quality.

Mark Ruffalo Seeks A More Philosophical Direction For A Solo Hulk Movie

19 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The Hulk has had two shots at the big screen so far, and while both films have their fans, neither is exactly beloved. By the time Mark Ruffalo suited up to play Bruce Banner in The Avengers, fans had already become divided on the issue of who the Hulk and his human alter ego really are. That paradox is among many issues why the hero hasn't popped up in his own movie recently, with the 46 year-old Mark Ruffalo not exactly being the sort of actor on which a big budget blockbuster can depend (which is also where ensemble rumors come from). Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Ruffalo was surprisingly quite forthcoming on the issues the character presents in terms of being the center of a feature film, noting that his Hulk would be considerably more introspective. "I think that.s the ticket forward for Banner, to start to figure out where »

'Batman V Superman,' 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron' And 'Fantastic Four' To Make Surprise Appearances At Comic-Con

19 hours ago | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Marvel and DC will go head-to-head at Comic-Con 2014, causing some to theorize that DC and Warner Bros. will unveil a possible Justice League cast lineup.

Batman V Superman Footage

DC’s Justice League movie will be their first shared superhero film, coming out of the recent Superman reboot in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel and the upcoming sequel, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. Last year, Snyder announced the Batman V Superman sequel at the Warner Brothers Comic-Con panel, and fans are anxious to see whether or not Snyder will surprise Comic-Con with another revelation on the Man of Steel sequel.

Rumors, of course, are already running wild about what potential Warner Bros. and DC surprises could be in store for San Diego this week, with many citing footage of Ben Affleck’s Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, at the top of their list. »

19 hours ago | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Robert Downey Jr. has been named Hollywood’s highest-paid actor by Forbes, which estimates that Downey earned $75 million in the past year, between June 2013 and June 2014.

Robert Downey Jr., Highest Paid Hollywood Actor

A big chunk of Downey’s income comes from his lucrative deal with Marvel as the on-screen manifestation of Tony Stark, aka Iron Man, in the Iron Man trilogy – the third of which was released in May 2013 – and The Avengers franchise. This is the second year in a row that Downey has earned the top spot on the exclusive list.

Hayley Atwell Says Agent Carter Is Back in 'Avengers 2'

22 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Hayley Atwell is ready to reprise her Peggy Carter role in the new ABC series Marvel's Agent Carter, but that's not the only place fans will be able to see her. She is also making an appearance in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

We last saw modern day Peggy in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, when Steve Rogers visited his former flame in an old folks' home. For Avengers: Age of Ultron, Joss Whedon wanted to write a scene specifically for the character.

Hayley Atwell explains,

"We went out drinking one night and he was like, 'You know, it would be great to write something for you,' And I was like , 'Yes, Joss, it would! It would be amazing!'"

It was not confirmed if she will be appearing in flashbacks that will tie into Marvel's Agent Carter, which debuts on ABC this winter, or if Steve will be making »

Mark Ruffalo: Age Of Ultron Is An 'Existential Crisis' For The Avengers

22 hours ago | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Thanks to San Diego Comic-Con this week, we've been learning quite a bit about Marvel's most-anticipated outing next year, Avengers: Age of Ultron. Among the things revealed last week was that some of Earth's mightiest heroes want a break from saving the world, which will ultimately set their newest foe in motion. However, Mark Ruffalo recently explained a bit more of what the Avengers will be going through next summer. "Joss [Whedon] is in his full height of his powers," the Incredible Hulk actor told USA Today yesterday. "This movie is much more sprawling and epic than the first one. They’re really in an existential, dire crisis. It has a darker quality. The Avengers are really struggling with their own shortcomings and the dissolution of S.H.I.E.L.D. and where they go and who they are in the world. There’s a lot of negativity towards them. »

Mark Ruffalo on the foe Hulk needs for a stand-alone movie

23 hours ago | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Ever since The Avengers debuted two years ago, fans have been demanding: When is Mark Ruffalo going to get a stand-alone movie as the Hulk?

With Marvel Studios recently announcing a slate of seven untitled movies that spans into 2019, it’s possible we may get an answer to the question at Comic-Con this week.

If a Hulk movie isn’t among them, the answer is probably: Never. At least, not with Ruffalo in the lead, since he has been open about the fact that his own age, 46, starts to become a problem for a superhero—especially if we’re looking »

Will Joss Whedon Direct 'Avengers 3'?

23 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Badass Digest, who broke the supposed big Star Wars: Episode VII plot scoop yesterday, claims to have sources deep inside Disney, and this time they are reporting that Joss Whedon will most likely not return to direct The Avengers 3. They go onto claim that James Gunn is being groomed by Marvel to take over the franchise. Which makes sense if we're to believe that the Guardians of the Galaxy team will show up in this impending Marvel sequel.

Badass Digest points out that James Gunn is signed to do a second Marvel movie, though the title hasn't been revealed. They also point out that most Marvel directors never make it to two movies, Jon Favreau and Joss Whedon being the exception, and Jon Favreau will never return to this Cinematic Universe as a director, at least for the time being (of course that could change). It sounds like Joss Whedon »
