Marvel Studios presents Avengers: Age of Ultron, the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time, 2012's Marvel's The Avengers. When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, »
While Marvel took over the known world with its superhero blockbusters, their closest rival, DC, snuck in through the back door and quietly invaded our homes through the medium of television. Thanks largely to the impressive work of producers Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim and Andrew Kreisberg, we’re now living in a golden age of TV shows based on superheroes. Comic book geeks have never had it so good… aside from that time Black Widow was all tied up at the beginning of The Avengers… and when Chris Evans frequently lost his clothes in Captain America: The First Avenger… and when – argh stop me now.
Within the space of just three TV seasons, the CW has introduced a number of established comic book characters through Arrow and The Flash, creating its own universe which will remain separate from its cinematic counterpart in the future. Fortunately, big plans are afoot for the “Arrowverse, »

Captain America: The Winter Soldier was one of the big cinematic successes of 2014. While nobody expected it to perform badly – it’s a Marvel Studios movie for goodness sake – this undoubtedly surprised some staunch comic book movie fans, given the moderate box office performance and fairly underwhelming action of Captain America: The First Avenger.
It actually turned out to be a fantastic, action-packed epic adventure which totally changed the face of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It grossed $715 million at the worldwide box office, as the plight of Cap, Black Widow and Sam Wilson saw it outperform the likes of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Interstellar.
It was certainly helped by being a little different to most superhero movies in the sense that it was a lot more grounded, particularly in comparison to the three Marvel Studios movies that came before it (Thor: The Dark World, »

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 to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.

Joining a team as closely knit and unforgettable as "The Avengers" has got to be something of a challenge, even for an actor like Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who has gamely appeared in "Kick-Ass" (and its follow-up) and last year's mega-successful "Godzilla" reboot. "Avengers: Age of Ultron," after all, is the sequel to the most successful superhero movie of all time, and one that stars a chummy group that includes Robert Downey, Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, and Jeremy Renner.
Add to that the additional pressure of playing Pietro Maximoff, aka Quicksilver, a super speedy Marvel character that audiences had just been introduced to the previous summer in Bryan Singer's "X-Men: Days of Future Past," and it sounds like a pretty daunting proposition. (He'll appear alongside his "Godzilla" co-star Elizabeth Olsen, who plays Quicksilver's twin sister, Scarlet Witch, as the two new kids on the block.) Not »

"I was never thrilled" admits Joss Whedon, as he discusses when he learned the X-Men films were using the character of Quicksilver too...
Quicksilver, after all, turned up in last year's X-Men: Days Of Future Past, and will be making his Marvel cinematic universe debut in Avengers: Age Of Ultron. And it's an odd situation, as the pair freely admit.
"It's a unique scenario", admitted Kevin Feige, Marvel Studios' boss. "That's the only character where that could happen, and it happened", he noted. That's in reference to the rights, that allow Fox to use characters in the X-Men universe in its films. Quicksilver appears in both X-Men and The Avengers stories, and thus we're getting different interpretations in two different movie franchises. »
Recently, Walt Disney Pictures and Marvel Studios dropped this new featurette/movie clip (below) for their upcoming "Avengers 2: Age Of Ultron" super hero/action flick, and it gives us new-look scenes at Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver in action along with short interview clips with their portrayers: Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson. It also features a couple new scenes with some of the other heroes too. Director, Joss Whedon, chimes in, and more. Check it out, below. The movie stars: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Samuel L. Jackson, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, James Spader, Cobie Smulders, Thomas Kretschmann, and Paul Bettany. The film's official description, reads like this: "Tony Stark will try to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, and things will go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are »
Whilst both "Avengers: Age of Ultron" and "X-Men: Days of Future Past" were in development, it was surprising to hear the news that both films would feature a variation on the same character - the super speedy Quicksilver. With the first "The Avengers" having turned everything to gold, it appeared as if Joss Whedon's film would win the perception war regarding the character by default.
On the eve of release however, Whedon finds himself in a backseat placing. The version played by Evan Peters in 'X-Men' was ridiculed for his costume during the film's production, but upon the film's release the attitude quickly changed as the character stole the show with the best sequence of an already well-regarded film. Rival DC also launched "The Flash" TV series, with a speedy title character of its own, which has become not only popular but had arguably the most acclaimed first season »

In an interview with BuzzFeed, director Joss Whedon has confirmed that his new sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron will be one full minute shorter than Marvel's The Avengers, clocking in at a hefty 142 minutes (2 hrs and 22 minutes). The first cut of the movie was actually a full hour longer, but a lot of backstory was cut out. Especially some moments with Scarlet Witch, which helped better explain her powers. But we'll still get to see those powers in full effect. The director reveals that we'll get to see inside this team of superheroes' heads, as Scarlet Witch, played by Elizabeth Olsen, is capable of giving them nightmares. He explains:
"She can make you have a nightmare, is one way of putting it. Trip balls would be another one. That was something I very much wanted, because it meant we could spend a little time inside the Avengers' heads, either their »
While BuzzFeed was among the folks who visited the set of Avengers: Age of Ultron last year, the media site talked very recently with Joss Whedon, who confirmed to them amid post-production that the sequel runs 142 minutes; a full minute shorter than The Avengers. The director also talked in-depth about the newcomers Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver, and ultimately what stars Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson bring to the characters as well as to the highly-anticipated film. “They don’t like America, and they don’t like the Avengers,” said Whedon of the Twins, who he says volunteer for their superpowered fate essentially because of their hatred of Earth's Mightiest Heroes (especially Iron Man). “We only touch on it briefly — there was more. When the movie was an hour longer, everything got explained a lot. The Avengers are like a world power, and not everybody’s on board with the Avengers coming »
While it's speculated that Avengers: Age of Ultron will open with an attack on Baron von Strucker's castle, as the team liberates future members Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, there is still much we don't know about this raid, aside from some of the snowy images we've seen with Bruce Banner and Hawkeye tromping through the very cold Sokovian forest. Now, we have a couple of images from this action-packed set piece from the sequel. And it reveals not only a Hyrda tank but also Strucker's Hyrda army.
These images are from a kids' picture book, and they piece together events from early on in the movie. We see Chris Hemsworth smiling as Thor, ready for battle. Next, we see a tank as it patrols the Sokovian countryside, protecting a base that is more secure than any The Avengers have ever faced before. The place is surrounded by heavy security. We »
With Avengers: Age of Ultron less than a month away from its UK release, we should expect to hear plenty of comments from the cast of the hotly-anticipated Marvel sequel as its arrival edges ever closer. Times of India has been speaking to Robert Downey Jr. about the film, during with he offered up a few words on Tony Stark’s character leading into the sequel.
“With the first film, The Avengers, Tony was becoming a team player and with Iron Man 3, it was him transcending his dependency on the tech that’s keeping him alive. So I thought, ‘Ok, now what?’ But there’s all this unfinished business. There’s the matter of a certain wormhole that opened over New York and the imminent threat that still implies, so Tony has turned his attentions more toward a bit of a post-Reagan-era, Star-Wars-type notion and he likes to call it Ultron. »

We’ve seen glimpses of Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) in action in the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailers, but Marvel UK just unveiled a brand new featurette called “Super Siblings” that gives us a far more in-depth look at the characters, especially Scarlet Witch. As someone who isn’t too familiar with the source material, I never really knew how powerful she was, but based on what we see in this promo video, she’s going to have an especially devastating effect on the Avengers. Check out the Avengers: Age of Ultron featurette below. The film opens in 3D on May 1st and also stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Stellan Skarsgard, Samuel L.

When Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters this May, the sequel will include all of Earth's Mightiest Heroes from Marvel's The Avengers, along with plenty of new faces as well. The studio has released a new featurette that showcases Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen).

Elizabeth Olsen also reveals that Scarlet Witch "messes" with the Avengers' heads so much that they have to all go away together and come back as a unit.
Chris Evans adds that it takes the Avengers awhile to "understand who can be trusted and who can't, and who's on our squad and who isn't." It has been widely rumored (Spoiler Warning!) that Avengers: Age of Ultron ends with a new team of Avengers assembling, »
