Joss Whedon Talks 'Avengers: Age of Ultron,' 'Bigger' Sequels, and Scarlet Witch

17 December 2014 4:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

When we saw Joss Whedon on the set of "Avengers: Age of Ultron" this past summer, he looked like he had been beaten up by the movie's robotic bad guy. Bags drooped under each eye, he moved slowly, looked gaunt, and, while giving his answers the characteristically snappy Joss Whedon delivery, the way that countless characters of his have talked over the years in various TV shows and movies, this time it sounded more forced and battle-hardened. We were inside Avengers Tower, which had been mostly destroyed by Ultron (you can see bits of this in the trainer) and it looked like Whedon was part of that collateral damage.

But who could blame him? This was day 72 of the shoot, and there was at least another month of principle photography left to go. He was tired. And he was also under an incredible amount of pressure. Last time out, Whedon's »

Why Marvel Doesn't Really Want To Give Hulk A Movie

17 December 2014 1:00 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

While Marvel has delighted fans with the return of characters like Iron Man, Thor and Captain America in Phase 2 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, a question that has been repeatedly brought up by fans is, "Where.s Hulk?" The green monster became a fan favorite after Joss Whedon.s The Avengers in 2012, and yet the film studio decided that he would be the only one of the four core team members without a solo movie sequel. Why? It turns out it was decided that he could be kept temporarily as a character unique to Avengers films. It was director Joss Whedon who let this interesting tidbit slip while we had the chance to talk to him this summer while visiting the set of The Avengers: Age of Ultron with a small group of other film journalists. The writer/director was discussing the use of Hulk in the movie and the »

The year in comic book TV: Go small or go home?

16 December 2014 9:55 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

This is, to put it plainly, one hell of a time to be a comic book nerd.   All my favorite characters(*) are making the leap from the page to either the big or small screen. Marvel can seemingly do no wrong with its film output, turning an obscure and downright goofy property like "Guardians of the Galaxy" into one of the year's biggest and most beloved hits. TV's most popular comedy ("Big Bang Theory") has a comic book shop as one of its primary sets, and a main character often seen in Flash and Green Lantern t-shirts. TV's most popular drama series ("The Walking Dead") is based on a long-running comic book, and there are currently five other comic-based shows airing on the broadcast networks (ABC's "Marvel's Agents of Shield," Fox's "Gotham," NBC's "Constantine" and the CW's "Arrow" and "The Flash"), with more coming fast. (The CW has "iZombie" set for mid-season, »

While Avengers: Age of Ultron will bring back some of Marvel's biggest heroes on screen, together first the first time since Marvel's The Avengers, including Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Captain America and Hawkeye, there is one character that fans have gotten more and more excited about with each new appearance.

Paul Bettany Talks J.A.R.V.I.S. & Vision in 'Avengers 2'

15 December 2014 11:18 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

There is still plenty we don't know about Avengers: Age of Ultron, as we inch closer and closer to the May 1, 2015 release date. One aspect of the story that has rarely been touched upon is the inclusion of Vision, which will be played by Paul Bettany, the longtime voice of J.A.R.V.I.S. in the Iron Man movies and Marvel's The Avengers. Earlier this month, a new poster offered us our best look at Vision yet, but the images were later removed, following a promo poster spotted in September. When asked when fans will finally get their first official look at Vision, Paul Bettany had this to say, in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

"It's still a secret. I think all will be revealed very shortly. It's a secret I've kept for about three years, which is really hard, especially with three kids. I'm contractually »

J.K. Simmons Lands Role In Kong: Skull Island

15 December 2014 11:00 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Deadline report that the awesome J.K. Simmons (Spider-Man, Oz, Juno, Whiplash) will be joining Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers, Thor when we return to King Kong's home next year. His exact role is unspecified however. The movie recently backed away from its original release date -- and Marvels Doctor Strange -- and will now hit theaters March 10th, 2017. Details on the story are slim, but we do have this brief description. "Previous works have touched on the island, but staying on and exploring this mysterious and dangerous place offers Legendary the opportunity to take audiences deeper inside this rich world with a style and scope that parallels other Legendary productions." Jordan Vogt-Roberts (Kings Of Summer) will direct with a script by John Gatins and Max Borenstein. »

Lorem ipsum 1 of 5

Even after the events of Iron Man 3, which saw Tony Stark destroy his collection of prized, mechanized suits, Avengers: Age of Ultron will once again have Robert Downey Jr. as the man in the can when Joss Whedon’s anticipated sequel blasts onto the scene next year, and thanks to a series of collectible figures from Hot Toys, we’ve been allowed to get up close and personal with Stark’s latest model, the Mark Xliii.

It may not be the most eye-catching armor that the self-proclaimed hero will don in the fight against Ultron — that title belongs to the Hulkbuster — but it’s still an enticing look at what is likely the most advanced Iron Man suit that Stark has ever created. And he’ll »

Paul Bettany Teases Avengers: Age Of Ultron's Vision Mystery

On the surface, it appears that Paul Bettany's J.A.R.V.I.S. somehow becomes The Vision in The Avengers sequel.  This would be a significant departure from the The Vision's origin according to  Marvel Comics lore but Marvel Studios has already proven that they're not afraid to tweak origin stories to fit the larger scheme of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.   Ten-months after the public announcement, Paul Bettany still can't talk about playing The Vision in Joss Whedon's Avengers; Age of Ultron.  "It's still a secret. I think all will be revealed very shortly.  It's a secret I've kept for about three years, which is really hard, especially with three kids. I'm contractually obliged not to talk about it.  J.A.R.V.I.S will be there and so will The Vision. But I simply can't tell you any more." Does Bettany's comments debunk the theory that J. »

Buffy The Vampire Slayer widescreen reruns going badly wrong

14 December 2014 11:18 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Joss Whedon adds his voice to the loud complaints over the widescreen mishandling of Buffy The Vampire Slayer...

As Joss Whedon has written on his Twitter feed, Buffy The Vampire Slayer was a TV show that was shot in the 4x3 aspect ration because "TVs were shaped that way". He added that "widescreen Buffy is nonsense".

That he's had to post this at all is in response to reruns of Buffy The Vampire Slayer that have been airing in the Us, that have been remastered by 20th Century Fox into a widescreen aspect ratio. The problem is that the source material doesn't support such a decision, and whilst the HD widescreen reruns have been going for a while, changes that have now come to light include significant changes to the lighting of scenes, and even crew members popping up in the shots.

Here's YouTube compilation that compares, just on a technical level, »
