Joss Whedon is currently working very hard on giving audiences a worthy follow-up to one of the biggest films of all time, The Avengers. Avengers: Age of Ultron is a few short months away and the new issue of Empire Magazine had a bunch of new images about that film. They also asked Whedon about […]

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. »

Marvel Studios may have laid out a show-stopping and expansive cinematic blueprint, laying claim to a plethora of release dates from now until the end of time, but the company remained coy on the actors and directors attached to each project so far out from release. Even still, one of the more prominent tidbits of speculation doing the rounds on the Internet has been that the studio has effectively tapped The Winter Soldier‘s Joe and Anthony Russo to helm the two-part Avengers: Infinity War.
Such a switcheroo would therefore make this year’s Avengers: Age of Ultron Joss Whedon’s last outing, and the filmmaker himself backed up this claim by stating that it is “very doubtful” he will oversee Earth’s Mightiest Heroes on the big screen again.

Back in October, a report surfaced that Captain America: The Winter Soldier directors Joe Russo and Anthony Russo will likely take over for Joss Whedon as the directors of The Avengers 3 and The Avengers 4. This was two weeks prior to Marvel announcing that Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and Part 2 will hit theaters in 2018 and 2019. At that time, the studio never confirmed a director for either sequel. Today, Joss Whedon himself revealed to Empire that he will most likely not be at the helm for this epic undertaking.

With Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age of Ultron set to dominate a theory near you in mere months, Empire Magazine is about to unveil a big spread on the blockbuster. The publication has a number of new stills from the big Marvel team-up, which is a sequel to the third highest grossing film of all-time.
Here are the two alternate covers:
And here are a bunch of scans of stills from the movie:

Marvel Studios presents “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time. When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to the Avengers »

"...in 'Avengers: Age of Ultron', with 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' destroyed and the 'Avengers' needing a hiatus from stopping threats, 'Tony Stark' attempts to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program with 'Ultron', a self-aware, self-teaching, artificial intelligence.
"However, his plan backfires when Ultron decides that humans are the main enemy and sets out to eradicate them from Earth...
"...along with support from 'Nick Fury' and 'Maria Hill', to stop him from enacting his plans.
"Along the way, the Avengers encounter the powerful twins, 'Pietro' and 'Wanda Maximoff', as well as the 'Vision'..."

It's crazy to think that Avengers: Age of Ultron is only four months and a week away. Empire posted a preview of their March issues that feature Ultron and the Avengers on two respective covers.
Director Joss Whedon shared a few humorous words with Empire:
"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."
Thanks to Dark Horizons, we have eight photos scanned from the magazine.

It's hard to imagine Marvel's announced, two-part The Avengers: Infinity War without Joss Whedon. He not only created the biggest, baddest superhero team-up movie so far, but he also helped shape the other standalone movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to better set up the larger films down the road. It.d be a shame to see him drop out before seeing the fruits of his labor with the big battle against Thanos, but it seems like Avengers: Age of Ultron will be the last one he tackles. In an interview with Empire (as quoted by Comic Book Movie), Whedon addressed his potential return for Avengers: Infinity War and threw cold water on the notion. He said: I couldn't imagine doing this again. It's enormously hard, and it'd be, by then, a good five years since I created anything that was completely my own. So it's very doubtful that »
In 2012, The Avengers grossed over $1.5 billion worldwide, and Avengers: Age of Ultron is on track to once again dominate the box office this year (a new batch of stills can be seen by clicking here).
The question on everyone’s mind however is whether or not he will return to helm the two-part Avengers: Infinity War. There have been rumours about James Gunn possibly taking over, and later more concrete reports that Joe and Anthony Russo (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) are being lined up to take over directing duties from Whedon.
Talking to Empire Magazine recently, the filmmaker revealed that he may indeed choose not to return for Avengers: Infinity War. “I couldn’t imagine doing this again,” he told the publication. “It’s enormously hard, and it will be, by then, a good five years since I created anything that was completely my own.

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.

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."
When Tony Stark tries »
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. »

Empire has revealed their Avengers: Age Of Ultron covers for this month's issue of the magazine, and it features most of the main cast for the film, however there's still no sign of Paul Bettany's Vision. While Iron Man, Thor and the rest of The Avengers have to share a cover (via Photoshop), James Spader's Ultron gets one all to himself on the limited edition cover. There's nothing too exciting, but the covers do give us another look at the superhero »

Every year, stars get together at the SAG Awards to congratulate each other on how awesome they all are with a lavish, unhosted ceremony that speeds along at a quick pace because everyone wants to get their naked man sculptures and hit up the after parties.
Because of the ceremony's weird place in the awards season – after the Oscar Nominations have been announced but before the Oscars actually take place - and the Golden Globes-esque mingling of television and film stars, sometimes the show can get real weird, real quick.
News: SAG Awards 2015: The Complete Winners List
Tonight’s ceremony was a rather low-key affair, but it still had some stand-out moments. Here are the best, the worst, and the most awkward moments of the night.

If Marvel wants to adopt any of the modern, Guardians of the Galaxy stories that feature Gladiator-1, Gunn and Kevin Feige will have to make some changes to the source material. It seems that Gladiator is a character Marvel Studios doesn't own, which also probably means that Marvel doesn't own the Shi'ar-2 either. The character first appeared in an X-Men comic so it stands to reason that 20th Century Fox owns his character rights. Admittedly, the Shi'ar and Gladiator have very little impact on what Marvel can do with The Avengers and other Earth-based stories but it does have an impact on what stories can be adapted from Marvel's Cosmic line. If Marvel ever wanted to adapt the Kree-Shiar-3 war or introduce The Annihilators-4, don't expect those stories to include Gladiator or (Silver Surfer).

No latex, no drooling, no preaching – has Marvel's Agent Carter mastered the comic book heroine?
Warning: contains mild spoilers for Agent Carter.
The perfect standalone female comic book hero has been a somewhat unobtainable dream for both Hollywood moviemakers and small screen show-runners ever since Blade, X-Men and Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man launched us into the modern age of superhero multimedia dominance.
Of course, there have been attempts – Catwoman and Elektra were released in 2004 and 2005 respectively, both hoping that the proven bankability of their heroine’s male counterparts (as in, Batman and Daredevil) and a few skimpy outfits would be enough to help launch massive new female-fronted franchises.
Sadly, both productions essentially missed the point. While exploitative images of nearly-nude lady vigilantes might be enough to make a few shillings from the comic-buying masses, making a mint from a comic book movie takes strong performances, solid action, likeable characters and – above all – good stories. »
Leave it to the Vision to be omniscient.
“This is the biggest thing Marvel have ever done,” he told the Radio Times. “It was enormous. I remember we were at Comic-Con and they showed a portion of the footage, and I was just gobsmacked. And I looked down the row and every one of the Avengers was the same, including Samuel Jackson. And his whole modus operandi is ‘I’ve seen everything before, I’m the most chilled out, relaxed man and I’ve seen everything,’ and he was as knocked out as anyone. It’s huge.”
The film will reportedly set a new VFX shot count record for a Marvel film.
Bettany, who will play the red-faced android hero the Vision in “The Avengers” sequel, also described “Age of Ultron’s” set as »
