Avengers: Age of Ultron Props and Footage Description From Comic-Con

27 July 2014 2:56 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Marvel Studios may have failed to make many major announcements at the San Diego Comic-Con this weekend (though to be fair, they did reveal the release date for the Guardians of the Galaxy sequel), but those lucky enough to be at their panel on Saturday night were treated to brand new footage from Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Below is a lengthy description of the scenes that were shown, and they reveal a fair bit about the plot of the movie and Ultron, the villainous robot who is voiced by The Blacklist’s James Spader.

Marvel have revealed that this footage won’t be making an online debut anytime soon, and Guardians of the Galaxy director quickly took to his Twitter account to debunk rumours that unlike Captain America: The First Avenger – which had an Avengers Assemble teaser – this will be attached to the end of his movie.

'Lucy' Wins Brain vs. Brawn Battle This Weekend

27 July 2014 1:17 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Scarlett Johansson easily out-muscled Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson on the final weekend of a very weak month at the box office.In another big win for Universal Pictures, Lucy took first place with over $43.9 million. Meanwhile, Hercules had to settle for runner-up with a lukewarm $29.8 million debut.Overall, the Top 12 earned $136.8 million this weekend; that's down 13 percent from the same frame last year.Lucy's opening weekend didn't quite match similar movies like Wanted ($50.9 million) or Taken 2 ($49.5 million). The fact that it even came close, though, is a fairly remarkable feat for this moderately-budgeted original action movie. Among other similar titles, it crushed The Bourne Legacy ($38.1 million) and Salt ($36 million).It's also the fourth Universal Pictures release to open north of $35 million this year; the other three are Lone Survivor, Ride Along and Neighbors. This is even more impressive considering all four titles are "original" (i.e. not sequels, »

Comic-Con: Guillermo Del Toro on His New Black and White Film and Call Out to Fans

27 July 2014 10:37 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

He’s got the greenlight for “Pacific Rim 2,” is editing “Crimson Peak,” is a producer on “The Strain” and “Book of Life” and a writer on “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.”

But what multi-hyphenate Guillermo Del Toro is most excited about is his “little black and white movie” that he’s planning to write, produce and direct as soon as post-production wraps on “Crimson Peak” and while “The Strain” is still shooting.

Currently untitled, Del Toro says his project will be an “intimate story with a few characters and one creature,” and completely in his control. He’s working up the budget on the film now, but said it will be as intimate as the project itself, a big change from “Pacific Rim,” which carried a $190 million pricetag.

Call the untitled black and white film his “Much Ado About Nothing.” (When Joss Whedon was in post »

How ‘The Avengers’ & ‘Lucy’ Turned Scarlett Johansson Into an Action Superstar

27 July 2014 10:18 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Donning a dodgy Russian accent and a skin-tight, leather suit as “The Avengers’” Black Widow is reaping dividends for Scarlett Johansson.

The actress may have benefited more from her work on the Marvel movies than any other member of the superhero ensemble save for Robert Downey Jr., whose work as Iron Man transformed him into perhaps the biggest box office star on the planet. Evidence of Johansson’s raised profile was on display this weekend, as the actress powered “Lucy” to a $44 million debut, the third biggest female-driven action opening of all time.

First and second place belong to “Wanted” and “Lara Croft: Tomb Raider,” both star Angelina Jolie, who may have a worthy successor in the come-hither glances and gunplay department in Johansson.

“‘Avengers’ turned her into an action star and that’s part of the reason ‘Lucy’ had so much success,” said Jeff Bock, a box office analyst with Exhibitor Relations. »

Will Nova Appear In Guardians Of The Galaxy 2?

27 July 2014 10:12 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Since Guardians Of The Galaxy 2 has officially been announced, with James Gunn returning to write and direct, a lot of people are already starting to speculate on which superheroes will be added to the mix. One of the names previously thrown around when Nathan Fillion’s cameo was announced in Guardians Of The Galaxy was Richard Rider aka Nova, but this rumor was ultimately shot down and Nova’s appearance was debunked. I know, Nathan Fillion would have been a great Nova, but fear not Marvel fans, because it looks like Richard Rider has made a pretty strong case for Gunn’s sequel, and there’s a good chance we’ll be seeing the New Yorker enter Marvel’s cinematic universe sooner than later.

Producer Kevin Feige has been dropping plenty of hints while running the press circuit for Guardians Of The Galaxy, and when asked about Nova, he revealed »

David Fincher: ‘Fight Club’ Sold 13 Million DVDs–’It Paid for Itself’

27 July 2014 10:01 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As Comic-Con fanboys and fangirls roared in excitement Saturday at Marvel’s Hall H panel, which featured the entire cast of “The Avengers: Age of Ultron,” one of the most popular films of the past 20 years was quietly discussed for a much smaller, attentive crowd at the San Diego Convention Center.

Director David Fincher, making a rare public appearance, sat and talked at length about 1999′s “Fight Club” with author Chuck Palahniuk — discussing everything from the story’s genesis to the project’s surprising marketing challenges, giving fans more insight on the cult film as it nears its 15th anniversary in October.

Though the movie, starring Brad Pitt and Edward Norton, is highly regarded today, it struggled mightily out of the gate.

“‘Fight Club’ sold less than 5,000 copies,” Palahniuk said of the 1996 book.

But Fincher, coming off the acclaimed and commercial hit “Seven” at the time, said he was immediately addicted to the novel. »

All About That Mind-Blowing 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' Footage From Comic-Con 2014

27 July 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Yesterday's Marvel panel, in the vast Hall H (imagine what you'd think the inside of a whale looks like or one of the hulls on Noah's ark), was the Valhalla for comic book enthusiasts, movie geeks, and guys who want to dress up like Doctor Who. People had been waiting in line outside the convention center for hours and some dedicated fans had been camped overnight, with a single goal: to watch the Marvel panel in Hall H. And, of course, the thing that was on everyone's mind was footage from next summer's "Avengers: Age of Ultron," the almost supernaturally anticipated new sequel. And after seeing the footage, we can confirm that it was indeed mind-blowing.

The clip started with an extended sequence set in the newly remodeled Avengers Tower in New York. The gang is all there: Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Captain America (Chris Evans »

'Avengers: Age Of Ultron' footage is playful and badass all at once

26 July 2014 10:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Marvel panel really only focused on the two 2015 releases this time, and that's fine. It gave them time to have all of the Avengers come out and discuss the movie and play around and be super charming, because they are. It also meant that they cut a longer than average sizzle reel to show the crowd. They're still working on the movie, but they're pretty far into the process at this point, so what they had to show us was surprisingly finished, and it was very impressive. I visited the London sets for the film, and the first scene they showed was shot on one of the most impressive sets I've ever seen, a three-story completely accurate version of The Avengers Tower, complete with labs for Tony and Bruce and a downstairs that leads to a Quinjet landing pad. Wildly impressive. As the footage begins, the Avengers are relaxing, »

Watch The Avengers: Age Of Ultron Cast Assemble At Comic-Con

26 July 2014 9:23 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It was back in 2010 . my first year at San Diego Comic-Con . that I got to witness one of the coolest things that I have ever experienced in my young life. At the end of the Marvel Studios panel that year, director Joss Whedon was joined on stage by every single member of The Avengers - including the newly cast Mark Ruffalo as Hulk and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye. As you can see in the video above, tonight my memory got a sequel thanks to the cast of The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Marvel Studios once again held their annual presentation at San Diego Comic-Con this evening, and in addition to bringing out Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll and director Peyton Reed for Ant-Man, the comic book movie studio also once again assembled the Avengers in Hall H.

‘Ant-Man’ Film Avoids Domestic Abuse Story From Marvel Comics

26 July 2014 9:06 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

On top of being a longtime member of The Avengers, a genius scientist and a superhero with the ability to change size and communicate with ants, Hank Pym is known for two very specific decisions which will forever serve as major, perhaps even unforgivable, moments in his career.

Hank Pym creates Ultron who in Marvel Comics is responsible for so much death and carnage. From The Avengers 2 footage, Ultron is just as much of a killer in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it’s not Pym who creates him this time. Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) does, which is quite a deviation from the books. While that also resulted in the creation of the ...

Paul Bettany Talks Avengers: Age Of Ultron, The Vision, His Powers and Abilities, His Relationship to The Avengers, and More

26 July 2014 8:55 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I never thought I'd see one actor play two characters within the cinematic Marvel universe, but if anyone can do it, Paul Bettany can.  As the voice of J.A.R.V.I.S., Tony Stark's constant AI companion since the first Iron Man film, Bettany is one of the longest standing members of the Marvel crew.  In Avengers: Age of Ultron Bettany steps into the shoes (or cape) of the Vision.  A newly created android who is somehow maybe sort of related to J.A.R.V.I.S. - unsurprisingly they weren't telling us a whole lot in advance of Marvel's Hall H panel. Earlier today at Comic-Con I sat down for a group interview with Bettany about the Vision Age of Ultron.  He walked up to the table, pretending to read a message on his phone intently, “I'm just looking up something.  Yep, I can’t say anything. »

Robert Downey Jr. brings roses and Josh Brolin as every Avenger gets a Marvel panel moment

26 July 2014 8:55 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

San Diego — Rumor had it that during their highly anticipated Comic-Con panel Marvel Studios would announce which actor is playing the new Doctor Strange in Scott Derrickson's upcoming big screen adaptation. Rumor also had it that Marvel would reveal who is playing Captain Marvel, a much-needed super-powered female Avenger that is expected to cameo in "Avengers: Age of Ultron." Neither event happened. Instead, the studio announced that a sequel to "Guardians of the Galaxy" has already been greenlit and it already has a release date of July 28, 2017. Oh yeah, and they showed a massive amount of footage from Joss Whedon's "Avengers" sequel with almost the entire cast on hand. A who's who of Hollywood stars including Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man) Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Chris Evans (Captain America), Mark Ruffalo (Hulk), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Quicksilver), Elisabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Paul Bettany »

Comic-Con: Did Joss Whedon Just Kill All the Avengers?

26 July 2014 7:46 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Long before shows like Game of Thrones and Lost taught us that anyone was expendable, Joss Whedon was the undisputed master at killing off your favorite characters. Whedon's tenure at the helm of shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel left behind a body count of the beloved, but you might have thought that Whedon's foray into directing superhero movies would curb his murderous tendencies: Yes, he snuck one surprise death into The Avengers, but the superhero-stuffed sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron wouldn't seem to have as many expendables. Who among these franchise-sporting superheroes could he kill, really?The answer, it seems, is every goddamn last one of them.That is, if we're to go by the shocking last scene from the Age of Ultron trailer that just screened at Comic-Con tonight. Most of the trailer is something else entirely: We see the Avengers tussling with the arrogant robot »

Comic-Con: 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' Footage Description!

26 July 2014 7:11 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

During Marvel's massive Hall H panel, the main cast of Avengers: Age of Ultron took to the stage, along with Kevin Feige. Even though production is still ongoing, the producer and cast had a little treat for the fans, the first footage from this highly-anticipated sequel!

First off, we reported last month that the opening moments of the sequel include a party scene at the Avengers tower, which gets ruined when Ultron (James Spader) himself shows up. The scenes that were shown take place at this party, with all of the Avengers in their civilian clothes, as each of them take turns trying to lift Thor's (Chris Hemsworth) enchanted hammer, Mjolnir. Tony (Robert Downey Jr.) tries and fails, and he even can't make the hammer budge with his Iron Man hand and War Machine. Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) fails to move the hammer, although Captain America (Chris Evans) does »

"Avengers: Age of Ultron" Comic Con Panel

26 July 2014 7:10 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Marvel kicked off its "Avengers: Age of Ultron" Comic Con presentation with one bit of sad news - Joss Whedon couldn't make it as he was laid up in London following knee surgery and isn't allowed to fly.

Almost the entire main cast was there though - Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobey Smulders, Clark Gregg, Mark Ruffalo, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and James Spader with new mother Scarlett Johansson having to sit this out.

Downey made the crowd swoon, coming into the hall throwing roses and dancing to a Jackson 5 number. Along the way he cracked jokes about how with each casting addition he becomes a little less significant.

Hemsworth got a joke in when asked what he'd like to see Thor do. He responded "Turn him into a woman" and joked that doing so would probably earn him an Oscar. »

The Avengers 2: Paul Bettany Talks Vision’s Powers

26 July 2014 7:04 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

After playing a minor, yet important and memorable role in all three Iron Man films and The Avengers, Joss Whedon found a way to give star Paul Bettany a major role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe that takes him out of the sound booth and puts him on set. After hours and hours of makeup of course.

Leading up to Comic-Con, Marvel Studios opened the floodgates on official photos and set interviews for The Avengers: Age of Ultron and from the early marketing push we learned a little more about the titular villain Ultron and is masterful creation, Vision.

That’s one of many important story elements from Marvel Comics that translates into Joss Whedon’s 2015 summer blockbuster. In an effort ...
