Joss Whedon Admits That Making The Avengers: Age Of Ultron Broke Him

13 May 2015 8:43 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Avengers: Age of Ultron isn.t the movie that broke Earth.s Mightiest Heroes, it.s the movie that broke its director, Joss Whedon. After helming one of the highest-grossing movies of all time, Marvel.s The Avengers, the beloved filmmaker returned for the sequel, only this time the pressure, responsibilities and his inner perfectionist got inside his head like a Maximoff twin.  Whedon.s exhaustion throughout making Avengers 2 has been widely reported, but he more recently spoke with The L.A. Times. Hero Complex and came up with more dramatic word choices. Whedon said:  It.s weird because the first one was very, very, very, hard. This one was much harder. It a little bit broke me. This isn.t to say he though the entire experience was unbearable. As he said, he had an amazing crew and cast to work with, and the second time around brought a »

Watch: VFX Reel Highlights The Special Effects Magic Of 'Avengers: Age Of Ultron'

13 May 2015 7:38 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Even though it’s only been in theaters for two weekends, “Avengers: Age of Ultron” is already the fourth highest grossing Marvel movie of all time at the domestic box office. And at nearly $319 million, it’s barely gotten started. (Case in point: three years ago, the first “The Avengers” installment brought in a whopping $623M domestic in the 22 weeks it played on screens.) Fans, non-fans, and moviegoers of all ilk love it, and why wouldn’t they? The Avengers are pure popcorn gold. The franchise — as with most Marvel movies — is wildly entertaining, promises nearly nonstop big screen action, and at almost two and a half hours, more than enough bang for your buck. Plus, it’s got an incredible cast. Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett JohanssonMark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner, Samuel L. Jackson, and on and on and on. But, as all movie lovers know, »

'Avengers 2' Director Joss Whedon on Sequel: It Broke Me!

12 May 2015 7:00 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When Marvel's The Avengers hit theaters in 2012, it was a resounding success, taking in over $1.5 billion at the box office worldwide, with some proclaiming it to be the best superhero movie ever. Of course, Marvel's The Avengers was just the beginning, with Marvel rolling out a slew of sequels and new adventures in Phase Two that lead up to Avengers: Age of Ultron, which has already earned $881 million worldwide in less than two weeks. While the sequel is certainly a financial success already, director Joss Whedon isn't coming back to Marvel anytime in the near future, even deactivating his own Twitter account following the sequel's release. The filmmaker revealed in a new interview that, while he said that Kevin Feige and everyone at the studio was "great," the process also broke him.

"You know, they were great. Because Kevin knows what he wants, he understands what I do. But I pushed them. »

Female 'Thor' Revealed, Will It Affect the Marvel Movies?

12 May 2015 5:39 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in July, Marvel announced that an unspecified female character will take over as the new Thor in the comic books, which had many fans wondering how this will affect Chris Hemsworth's future in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The female Thor has already been introduced in the comics, taking over for Thor Odinson after he became unworthy of wielding his mighty hammer Mjolnir, as a result of something Nick Fury said to him. Mjolnir laid idle on the moon until a mysterious woman picked it up, thus making her the new Thor. Wednesday's issue of Marvel's Secret Wars comic reveals the identity of this female God of Thunder, although a few key panels from the comics have leaked, via Team Hellions. Be warned, there will be Spoilers, so read on at your own risk.

The leaked panels reveal that none other than Jane Foster, played by Natalie Portman in »

The Fantastic Film

11 May 2015 10:11 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

It took 20th Century Fox 14 years, but with last year’s X-Men: Days of Future Past, they finally delivered the movie that X-Men fans had been impatiently waiting for since 2000. Now, in 2015, Fox hopes to revive their other, more desperate, superhero franchise with this summer’s Fantastic Four. Using the same apocalyptic tones and brooding masochism made famous by Bryan Singer’s X-Men, Fox is hoping that their third go-around with the oft-troubled franchise will prove to be the charm. But, based on the failures of previous Fantastic Four films, the barrage of trailers and press releases for the new flick, and the entire history of the comic book series, Fantastic Four may inevitably be doomed from the start.

As a series, The Fantastic Four has proven to be one of Marvel’s more inconsequential title to readers, as well as one of its most inaccessible to writers. Ever since »

Has a Black Widow Avengers toy been replaced by Captain America?

11 May 2015 5:37 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The Avengers' official merchandise has caused a bit of controversy, with Twitter users questioning whether a Black Widow toy was replaced with Captain America.

In one of her most famous scenes from Avengers: Age of Ultron, Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) drops out of a jet straight onto a motorcycle, but the Hasbro toy has seemingly been released with Captain America instead.

Digital Spy has reached out to Marvel for comment.

Jeremy Renner was forced to apologise earlier this month after calling the Black Widow character a "slut" for being linked with other Avengers, during a Digital Spy interview.

He later brushed off the comments in an interview with Conan O'Brien, saying: "Now, mind you, I was talking about a fictional character and fictional behaviour.

"But Conan, if you slept with four of the six Avengers, no matter how much fun you had, you'd be a slut. Just saying."

Box-Office: ‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron’ Is #1 Again With $77 Million; ‘Hot Pursuit’ Underwhelms

10 May 2015 11:51 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Audiences assemble. To no one’s surprise, “Avengers: Age Of Ultron” held the number one spot at the box office this weekend for the second week running. Though the blockbuster did fall 60% in week two, the movie still made an additional $77 million in North America. Marvel’s picture currently stands at $312 million domestically so far. While that’s a fantastic second week total, it’s actually down 16% from the original “The Avengers,” which was at $373 million after its first two weeks of release in 2012. But if the box-office is waning across the board domestically, and it is, internationally the grosses are going in the opposite direction.

How much screen time does each Avenger get in Age of Ultron?

10 May 2015 11:48 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Minor Avengers: Age of Ultron spoilers follow…

Back in 2012, the folks at Vulture got their stopwatch out to time exactly how much screen time each of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes got in The Avengers, and now with the sequel currently in cinemas they’ve done the same for Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Given the expanded roster, it was inevitable that some of the superheroes would have to take a back seat this time around, so which character got the Hawkeye treatment this time around? Well, considering The Vision isn’t created until later in the movie, it seems that would be Thor

Vision – 8:41

Thor – 14:18

Hawkeye – 19:56

Scarlet Witch – 20:59

Bruce Banner / Hulk – 23:55

Quicksilver – 26:43

Black Widow – 33:07

Iron Man – 45:34

Captain America – 50:25

Box Office: Avengers: Age Of Ultron Already Closing In On $900 Million Worldwide

10 May 2015 8:05 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Avengers: Age of Ultron took a slightly higher dip than expected in North America this weekend of 60%, and it now looks set for a three day total of $77.2 million. That takes the sequel's domestic cume to around the $312.8 million mark. Overseas, Joss Whedon's movie brought in a solid $68.3 million (bear in mind that it still hasn't opened in China or Japan) for a total of $562.4 million. Add those together and Avengers: Age of Ultron has a worldwide total of $875.3 million, meaning it's a day or two away from $900 million and will breeze past the $1 billion mark sometime this week. Analysts are still predicting that the sequel will ultimately earn more than The Avengers, but how much more remains to be seen at this point...how many times have you guys watched it?  »

'Ultron' Hot, 'Pursuit' Not

10 May 2015 7:25 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Avengers: Age of Ultron didn't plummet from the sky like that Sokovian fiefdom in the film but, with its $77.2 million 2nd week outing, it did drop 59.6% from its opening take of $191 million. Surprising amounts of Monday-morning quarterbacking this last week noted that Ultron could have become the new #1 film for all-time weekend box office if it hadn't been up against several sporting events that siphoned off eyeballs. Even still the Disney/Marvel property has a lot to celebrate. Domestically it easily dominated the box office at the #1 position with a per theater take of $18K in 4,276 venues. That $77.2M is still the 2nd highest 2nd weekend gross, just ahead of the 2nd weekend of Fox's Avatar ($75.6 million), and is topped only by it predecessor, Marvel's The Avengers ($103.1 million). Ultron's domestic take to date ($313M) has also already surpassed the lifetime domestic cumes of Captain America ($177M), Thor ($181M), Thor: The Dark World »

Why stories should be celebrated

8 May 2015 2:16 PM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

The idea that Star Wars (and storytelling more generally) is something to be celebrated would seem, at first glance, to be obvious. However, in a world where the mere mention of George Lucas or the Star Wars prequels or Jar-Jar Binks almost automatically becomes a cheap punchline, as if no-one could possibly be allowed to hold an opposing, positive opinion of them, and where creators like Joss Whedon are harrassed on Twitter (possibly being a contributing factor in his decision to delete his account recently) for daring to write a character in a way certain fans don't approve of, the point obviously needs to be made.

(Whatever the specific arguments may be for or against Black Widow's characterisation in Avengers: Age of Ultron, let's not make things personal, and let's not lose perspective. It is a film with a lot of things going for it, after all.) As Joss Whedon himself sings on Commentary! »

"Avengers: Age Of Ultron" - 'The Good, The Bad and The Ugly'

8 May 2015 9:29 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

From the movie review site "The Good, The Bad And The Ugly.Ca, take a look @ 'the good, the bad and the ugly' in director Joss Whedon's "Avengers" sequel, "Avengers: Age Of Ultron":

Michael Stevens For 'The Good':

"When 'Tony Stark' jumpstarts a dormant peacekeeping program, things go 'awry' in Marvel Studios emotionally-charged, action-packed  "Avengers" sequel, "Avengers: Age Of Ultron"... 

"...with loads of frenetic action sequences bursting with colorfully costumed comic book superheroes...

"...flinging themselves into harms' way...

"...that would make Golden Age comics' artist Alex Schomburg proud...

"Elizabeth Olsen makes a fine debut as the wide-eyed and powerful, hex-casting 'Scarlet Witch', who weirdly mind-manipulates our heroes into facing their fears and unresolved traumas... 

"... providing a welcome opportunity for origins and flashbacks. 

"James Spader is suitably hard-edged, evil and comically wired as the jaded voice of the muscled 'Ultron'.

"Paul Bettany as the 'Vision', even though he was 'born yesterday', »

'Avengers: Age of Ultron' Just Reached $500 Million Milestone Overseas

8 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If only Joss Whedon were still on Twitter, we could tweet him some congrats on this. Oh well.

"Avengers: Age of Ultron" crossed the $500 million box office mark 17 days into its international release, Variety reports. That means it's already the third most successful Marvel film overseas, after "The Avengers" ($895 million) and "Iron Man 3" ($806 million). At $500M and counting, "Age of Ultron" has already passed the next Marvel titles on the international list, including "Captain America: Winter Soldier" ($455 million), "Guardians of the Galaxy" ($441 million), and "Thor: The Dark World" ($439 million).

And it hasn't even opened everywhere yet. The "Avengers" sequel hits China on May 12 and Japan on July 4. Do you think, all told, it can catch up to "Iron Man 3" or the original "Avengers"? It's not like it's a failure if it doesn't, but sequels always come with increased $$$ expectations.

In terms of domestic intake, "Age of Ultron" is »

Oscar 2011 co-host and Best Actor nominee James Franco (for Danny Boyle's 127 Hours) thus introduced Johansson and fellow Oscar presenter Matthew McConaughey: "I am six degrees of Kevin Bacon away from our next two presenters. Figure it out on the Internet." Well, if you're lucky. Some have remarked that Franco was a more effective Oscar host online, where he tweeted some of the evening's to-dos, than on the stage of the Kodak Theatre. His fellow equally panned Oscarcast host was actress Anne Hathaway.
