"Avengers: Age Of Ultron" - More Set Footage

18 August 2014 8:36 PM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Sneak Peek more set footage from the March 2014 Italian location shoot of director Joss Whedon's "Avengers: Age Of Ultron", showcasing 'Scarlet Witch' and 'Hawkeye':

"...with 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' destroyed and the 'Avengers' needing a break from stopping threats, 'Tony Stark' creates 'Ultron', a self-aware, self-teaching, artificial intelligence, who can assess threats and control Stark's 'Iron Legion'. 

"However, things quickly go awry when Ultron decides that humans are the main enemy and sets out to eradicate them from Earth..."

The Scarlet Witch and her brother 'Quicksilver' were part of the 'second generation' of Marvel's "The Avengers" comic book team, recruited by 'Iron Man', under the leadership of 'Captain America'.

Created by writer Stan Lee and illustrator Jack Kirby, the Scarlet Witch debuted in Marvel Comics' "X-Men" #4 (March 1964).

She is the daughter of 'Magneto', twin sister of Quicksilver and paternal half-sister of 'Polaris'. »

Stellan Skarsgård going full monty again for 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'

18 August 2014 4:37 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) Poor Eric Selvig can’t ever seem to catch a break — and by “catch a break,” we mean “put on his pants.” Stellan Skarsgård confirmed in an interview with Total Film that he’ll return in Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron for “a small appearance. It’s something really nice.” The Avengers sequel marks Skarsgård’s fourth time portraying Selvig, following both Thor films and the first Avengers. Skarsgård also confirmed that when Selvig returns, he’ll be in the nude — again. “Yeah, I was naked again,” he said. “They called my agent and said, ‘Do you think Stellan will mind being naked?’ My agent laughed his head off. Yeah, I almost insist! Sometimes with a contract you get a nudity clause, which is fantastic. It’s supposed to protect me from having my genitals exploited, which I doubt anybody would make a dime on.” Aside from getting naked again, »

Director Peyton Reed (Yes Man, The Break-Up, Bring it On) tweeted the following message today:

Alright, gang. Today is the day. Let's. Get. small. #AntMan

Peyton Reed (@MrPeytonReed) August 18, 2014

That's right, filming on Ant-Man has officially begun! 

There's been a lot of Ant-Man trashing since fanboy favorite Edgar Wright left the project and the script went through several revisions, but I'm still very hopeful for this film. Marvel know what they're doing and I have full faith in them, Reed and the cast to pull this off.

Here's the official press release from Marvel:

Marvel Studios began principal photography today in San Francisco, California, on its newest Super Hero franchise Marvel’s “Ant-Man.” The film brings one of Marvel comics’ original founding members of The Avengers into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The production also shoots on location in Atlanta, Georgia, which serves as the base for the film’s production. »

I’m going to be in Avengers: Age Of Ultron, a small appearance. It’s something really nice. Even if it’s owned by Disney now, it’s really run by four or five people, »

Stellan Skarsgård will return (and go naked) as Erik Selvig in Avengers: Age of Ultron

17 August 2014 2:11 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In an interview with Total Film (via ComicBookMovie), Stellan Skarsgård has revealed that he will return as Dr. Erik Selvig in Avengers: Age of Ultron. That marks Skarsgård’s fourth appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In the interview, the Swedish actor talked about first playing the character in Thor, and admitted to knowing very little about the Marvel universe before signing on…

“What I said to Kevin Feige, the head of Marvel, was, ‘All those superheroes? Still in those comic books? Can you make money out of that?’ The whole table just froze and looked at me as if I was an idiot. But you sign on for at least five films, I think. Or I did. I’m going to do my fourth.

Ving Rhames will return for Mission: Impossible 5

17 August 2014 2:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Jack Reacher director Christopher McQuarrie is hard at work on developing the fifth installment of the Mission: Impossible franchise, which will see the return of Tom Cruise as Imf agent Ethan Hunt and several of the last installment’s players, including Simon Pegg and Jeremy Renner. Now, thanks to McQuarrie himself, we have word on another actor returning to the long-running franchise: Ving Rhames.

Rhames was rumored to return, but today McQuarrie took to Twitter to officially announce the news to his followers.

Rhames was last seen in Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, in a small cameo near the tail-end of the film. His character Luther Stickell had a role in the first three films of the series, so it will be cool to see him return to the Imf team.

Mission: Impossible 5 is expected to hit theaters on December 25, 2015. The film stars Tom Cruise, Rebecca Furguson (The White Queen »

Stellan Skarsgard Returns For ‘The Avengers: Age of Ultron’

16 August 2014 11:12 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

In Phase 1 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the origin story for Thor helped setup the villain and main plot of The Avengers. A key to the pseudo-science involved in making the otherworldly stuff in Thor and The Avengers work was the character of Dr. Erik Selvig played by Stellan Skarsgård, a mentor of Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster. Selvig returned again in an even wackier, comedic exposition-focused role for Thor: The Dark World for even more questionable science-y plot necessities and we just learned that he’ll be back again for The Avengers: Age of Ultron.

From what we know about The Avengers sequel, it’s very Earth-based. The titular villain Ultron is a creation of hero Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and new potential hero Click to continue reading Stellan Skarsgard Returns For ‘The Avengers: Age of Ultron

Skarsgard Talks "Avengers" Sequel Role

16 August 2014 7:02 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

It seems the guys at Marvel love Stellan Skarsgard's Dr. Erik Selvig character as the actor has confirmed he's not only coming back for "Avengers: Age of Ultron," he may also 'drop trou' again.

Skarsgard appeared in both "Thor" films and the first "The Avengers". In "Thor: The Dark World," his character appears to have gone slightly mad and is seen in a news broadcast running around Stonehenge naked and raving. During an interview with Total Film magazine, the Swedish actor talked a bit about his contract with Marvel and why he likes working for them:

"You sign on for at least five films, I think. Or I did. I'm going to do my fourth. I'm going to be in Avengers: Age Of Ultron, a small appearance. It's something really nice. Even if it's owned by Disney now, it's really run by four or five people, and they know exactly what they're doing. »

'Thor' Star Stellan Skarsgard Will Get Naked Again for 'Avengers 2'

16 August 2014 5:08 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Avengers: Age of Ultron is promising quite a line-up of characters, as it has been revealed that even Stellan Skarsgard will be back as Dr. Erik Selvig, and the actor promises that he'll once again be naked.

Dr. Erik Selvig is a character created for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, an old colleague of Jane Foster's father who first debuted in 2011's Thor. He went onto play an important role in 2012's Marvel's The Avengers, but made the biggest impression when he was asked to run naked in Thor: The Dark World. It sounds like the actor will once again be stripping down to nothing, this time for director Joss Whedon.

"Yeah, I was naked again. They called my agent and said, 'Do you think Stellan will mind being naked?' My agent laughed his head off. Yeah, I almost insist! Sometimes with a contract you get a nudity clause, which is fantastic. »

25 Greatest Characters Across The Entire Whedonverse

16 August 2014 11:41 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Film-goers and kids growing up today know Joss Whedon as the director behind one of the biggest comic book blockbuster franchises to date: The Avengers. Without question, Whedon has taken his extensive knowledge of the world of comic books (he has written a number of them, including Fray, set in the world of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and also created The Astonishing X-Men for Marvel) and translated it to major success on the big screen.

What came before, however, is what made Joss Whedon a pop culture legend and cult superstar: Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Angel. Firefly.

Those three shows had an impact on pop culture like no other, and none more so than Buffy the Vampire Slayer, an unlikely cult hit for the W.B. (Warner Brothers) network in the 90s/early 2000s (it would move to Upn in its final seasons). Originally something of a failed movie that »

Entertainment Geekly: When did superhero movies get so unsurprising?

15 August 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Lucy is a superhero movie that doesn’t know it’s a superhero movie, so it’s the most interesting superhero movie of the year. Lucy’s “origin story” is a kick to her stomach and a zero-gravity seizure, and in one scene Scarlett Johansson scarfs down a bunch of blue rocks like her life depends on it. (Lucy pays homage to 2001: A Space Odyssey and Michelangelo’s The Creation of Adam—at the same time.) Without mythology to reference or fandom to service, Lucy is free to surprise you.

“Surprise” is something comic-book movies used to do. Think of The Dark Knight, »

Marvelous Da7e Survived Marvel Universe Live!

14 August 2014 1:03 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

“I’m the guy who asked my parents to get back in line at the Indiana Jones stunt show in Disneyland immediately after seeing it” is the thing I said to Mike Ryan after seeing Marvel Universe Live! at the Barclay’s Center last night. That was the statement I should have lead with when I explained why I wanted to see what everyone seems to describe as “Marvel on Ice without the Ice.”

I am the completest geek for things I love, I saw Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Coming Out Of Our Shells Tour at the Denver Coliseum. I’m the guy that wants to see all the stage shows at Universal Studios instead of going on the Jurassic Park Ride again. I’m the guy that took theater classes and learned about suspending people for Peter Pan and thinking: “This would be more fun if it were Spider-Man. »
