Despite dying in The Avengers in 2012, actor Clark Gregg has been rather busy as Agent Coulson on the ABC TV series "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." We're not sure if he'll ever make it back to the big screen within Marvel's interconnected cinematic universe, but he at least found time to make it back behind the camera for his second directing effort Trust Me. The film follows Gregg as a down-and-out agent that comes across a hopeful new client that could blast him into the big time. Gregg also brought fellow Marvel star Sam Rockwell along for the ride as his nemesis, and while it doesn't look amazing, it's probably worth watching. Here's the first trailer for Clark Gregg's Trust Me, originally from Apple: Trust Me is written and directed by Clark Gregg, who made his directorial debut with the adaptation of Chuck Palahniuk's Choke. Howard Holloway (Gregg) isa down-on-his »

Tribeca Film Festival 2014 The name Joss Whedon carries a lot of weight when it comes to genre-heavy storytelling. He’s been building a fan base since Buffy the Vampire Slayer aired on the WB network in 1997. With the big success of Marvel’s The Avengers, Whedon’s name is now considered one of the heavy hitters in Hollywood. While Joss Whedon didn’t direct the film “In Your Eyes,” he was the film’s screenwriter and executive producer. You can almost say that his signature style [ Read More ]

Of all the Marvel films, the one that is arguably taking the longest to get to screen is "Ant-Man". Filmmaker Edgar Wright was attached and working on the project back when the first "Iron Man" film went into production, but Wright's other projects took precedence.
Now, with production finally about to begin on "Ant-Man," Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige tells Empire (via Latino Review) that having the story locked down for "Ant-Man" all those years ago has impacted how Marvel has built and established its cinematic universe:
"We changed, frankly some of the McU to accommodate this version of Ant-Man. Knowing what we wanted to do with Edgar and with Ant-Man, going years and years back, helped to dictate what we did with the roster for Avengers the first time. It was a bit of both in terms of his idea for the Ant-Man story influencing the birth of the »

It.s been almost two years since The Avengers ended with a scene showing the evil Chitauri turning to a mysterious purple fellow who could only smile at the camera, completely vexing just about every non-comic reader in the audience. And yet his absence from Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier was ominous. Is Thanos coming? And if so, who will play the mad Titan? Kevin Feige, noted raconteur, has held court on this topic before, claiming Thanos would show up with motion capture in Guardians Of The Galaxy. But apparently there.s a heavier flesh-and-blood element to him as well. When Empire Magazine (via Cbm) asked Feige, he revealed, "There is an actor. I.m not sure we want to announce it yet." Which begs the question: who would dare step into the shoes of Marvel.s most menacing interstellar villain? Surely Feige isn.t »
As is customary for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it’s been revealed that U.K. fans will get to see Joss Whedon’s eagerly-anticipated Avengers: Age of Ultron a week earlier than our friends across the Pond, with Marvel announcing that the sequel will open in the U.K. and Ireland on April 24th, 2015 (as opposed to its U.S. date of May 1st).
Meanwhile, with filming on Age of Ultron currently taking place in the U.K., director Joss Whedon has offered up a few words about shooting in the country, telling Empire that: “The number of different looks and textures and moods we’re getting from the British locations is stupid awesome. Because this, palette-wise, is very different. I’m trying to make a different film. Because why would you make one movie twice? That seems weird.”
Whedon also spoke about the roster expansion for The Avengers sequel, »

Earlier today, we shared a few nuggets of information about Marvel’s highly anticipated sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron from writer/director Joss Whedon, but now it’s time to hear from Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige. He’s been the mastermind behind the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe from the beginning, and way back when Jon Favreau was gearing up to begin production on the first Iron Man, Feige already had Edgar Wright working on a feature film adaptation of Ant-Man. Wright’s a busy guy so it’s taken some time for the movie to come together, but he finally has his cast set and is gearing up to begin production in just a few months ahead of Ant-Man’s July 2015 release date. During a recent interview, Feige talked a bit about Wright’s Ant-Man, confirming that the story they locked into place for the film all those years »

Comic book fans understand Ultron . or, the different versions of Ultron that they.ve read about in different issues dating all the way back to 1968, when the robot first appeared in Avengers. But film fans who adored Joss Whedon.s Marvel.s The Avengers might not know what Earth.s Mightiest Heroes will have to face in next summer.s The Avengers: Age of Ultron, so these fresh comments from Whedon will be insightful. and more than a little tantalizing.

In an interview with Empire, Joss Whedon was quick to point out the fact that he’s not throwing all of these characters into the mix simply to make fans happy. There’s a reason for all of them being there. “I fiercely dislike the idea of just throwing in more people for the sake of doing that,” he stressed. “But last time I had all of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes versus one British character actor, and I needed more conflict.”
