Marvel's Victoria Alonso was the keynote speaker at yesterday's Visual Effects Society Production Summit at the W Hollywood, where she revealed that the highly-anticipated sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron has over 3,000 visual effects shots, the most of any movie in Marvel history. This breaks the studio's record of 2,750 VFX shots held by this year's Guardians of the Galaxy, while Captain America: The Winter Soldier had over 2,500 visual effects shots.
She also revealed that the studio will use between seven and 12 visual effects companies in five to seven different countries for Avengers: Age of Ultron, which is currently in post-production. She also addressed the need to hire more women in the visual effects industry.
"There's a lot of you boys out there. Where are the girls? You need to get them here. It's better when it's 50/50. It's okay to allow the ladies in; they are talented and bring you balance. We »
When director Bryan Singer ("The Usual Suspects") announced that X-Men: Days of Future Past would include 'Quicksilver' and that Evan Peters ("Kick-Ass") would play the role many people, such as myself, were skeptical. The timing of the announcement seemed especially odd since we already knew Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age of Ultron had decided to use the speedy-mutant as well. But all doubt surrounding Singer's intentions were tossed out the window when audiences were blown away by the film's Pentagon scene. 'Quicksilver' stole the show as he zipped along the walls of the Pentagon's kitchen with a gleeful smile as he protected his new allies: Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and Charles Xavier (James McAvoy). Below, are designs for the character's customized stereo belt. Concept Art by Henry Fong Ultimate X-Men ensemble fights a war for the survival of the species across two time periods in X-Men: Days »

Victoria Alonso, Vice President of Special Effects, Post and an Executive Producer for Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man, said she anticipates Avengers: AoU topping 3,000 VFX shots, which would make it Marvel's largest VFX shot count to date. Captain America: The Winter Soldier, maxed out at 2,500 shots, and Guardians on the Galaxy, reached 2,750 special effects shots. She told The Hollywood Reporter the Avengers sequel would likely involve seven to 12 VFX vendors in five to seven different countries. Alonso said working in multiple countries can benefit that process, as those in other countries "sometimes have ideas that we don't have. That’s what we gain by being global." When talking about working with others in the VFX industry, she said to "fill the gap; don’t let your ego get in the way. [The Marvel process] is mostly that we forget who we are and focus on the story. Go track, go rig, the »
Now that we're getting closer to seeing "Avengers: Age of Ultron" on the big screen, photos of Avengers toys are starting to leak out. Today we have a piece of concept art, giving us a look at how tall the characters will be. Captain America and Thor are both 6'4 tall and Iron Man is about an inch taller. But that's nothing compared to Hulk, who's 8'5. The main villain in the film, Ultron, is also pretty massive, standing at 8 feet tall. But the most impressive thing on the list is Iron Man's Hulkbuster suit, which is a whopping 11 feet tall. Unfortunately, the Hulkbuster suit, Ultron and Vision are all blanked out to hide how they will look in the film. Check out the concept art below. Image: (click to enlarge) »
Although it's not entirely a surprise given the studios' tendency to push the bar with the scale of their films, Marvel Studios executive producer Victoria Alonso confirmed tonight during a speech for the Visual Effects Society that next summer's Joss Whedon-helmed Avengers: Age of Ultron will feature over 3,000 VFX shots. That's roughly 500 more than this year's Captain America: The Winter Soldier and 250 more than Guardians of the Galaxy! »
One of the most anticipated elements of the upcoming "Avengers: Age of Ultron" will be the debut of the 'Hulkbuster Armor,' a new Iron Man suit creation of Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) designed to take on Mark Ruffalo's Incredible Hulk when he gets out of control.
This weekend, a leaked concept art sketch from Hot Toys about toy tie-ins for the movie has gone online at CavernadoHulk and showcases the full scale of the creation. While the robot Ultron stands at 8' tall and The Hulk is at 8'5, the Hulkbuster armor stands at a full 11' and is several times Hulk's size in terms of volume.
The concept art deliberately keeps the look of Ultron, Vision and the Hulkbuster armor under wraps - blocking the design itself, showing only a silhouette.
Meanwhile the Hulk himself will sport a new look in the 'Avengers' sequel thanks to Muse, »

A new piece of promo art for Avengers: Age of Ultron has hit the web. Courtesy of ComicBookMovie.com, the art seems to come from Hot Toys, and shows Earth’s Mightiest Heroes lined up with their respective heights listed. It also features an infuriatingly blanked-out look at Vision, Ultron himself, and the long-awaited Hulkbuster armor. Check it out…
While the art doesn’t show much, it does give us an idea of how the Hulkbuster and Ultron will compare to the Avengers. It will be mighty hard for the likes of Iron Man and Captain America to take down the 8 foot tall Ultron, but will Hulk be able to hold his own against Tony’s 11 foot Hulkbuster armor? We’ll just have to wait until Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters to find out…
Avengers: Age of Ultron is set for release in the UK on April 24th 2015 and »

Avengers: Age of Ultron will soon start dumping a ton of toys in stores near you, which means we'll get our first look at a lot of things from the movie in plastic or promo art form. While we've seen Hulkbuster in previous movie concept art, a new image, reportedly from Hot Toys, shows off the full-scale of this weapon designed by Tony Stark to control and capture an outraged Hulk.
We also get a look at all of the characters and their full sizes in this scale chart. It reveals that the 8'5" Hulk will have to contend with an 11' Hulkbuster, which sounds like quite a fight. How will Hulk be able to beat back this iron monstrosity? It also reveals that Ultron stands at a quite tall 8', just 5 inches shorter than the green goliath. Black Widow is the shortest of all Avengers, standing at just 5' »
Infuriatingly, Vision, Hulkbuster and Ultron are all blanked out in the image which seemingly originates from Hot Toys/Sideshow Collectibles. We do at least get a decent look at the costumes worn by the rest of Earth's Mightiest Heroes in Avengers: Age of Ultron as well as how they all match up in terms of size. The image originates from here, though we have to thank @galliettd for the heads up! What do you guys think about this latest piece of promo art? Sound off below! Click on the image below to view the slightly larger version. Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Cobie Smulders, Paul Bettany, James Spader, and Samuel L. Jackson, and is set to be released on May 1st, 2015. »

Most people thought that, following Avengers: Age of Ultron next year, Downey, Jr.’s only remaining appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe would be in the third Avengers movie in 2018. Then, an interview with Ellen DeGeneres revealed that he was in negotiations with Marvel – with suggestions that they could merely be over a potential fourth Iron Man movie – but it was later announced that he would actually be appearing in Captain America 3 in 2016.
It’s extremely exciting news, as it’s the first time one of the really big titular heroes will be appearing in a movie that isn’t their own or an Avengers ensemble and it will surely enable Captain America 3 to bring in a hell of a lot more »

The Hulk has come so far from the earliest days, when television producers slapped green makeup on actor Lou Ferrigno and asked him to run around in pre-shredded shirts and shorts. And every time the green giant returns to the screen, his look improves.

IGN learned about the system while attending the launch of the new Ilm studio facility in London, where work is being done on Marvel.s latest, on Star Wars: »

Industrial Light & Magic, the in-house effects company established by George Lucas in 1975, is still one of the leading forces in the industry and is responsible for working on some of the biggest movies over the past five decades. They are currently working on director Joss Whedon's superhero sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron and will begin working on Star Wars: Episode VII in just a few short weeks as principal photography wraps on J.J. Abrams sci-fi epic. Both movies are expected to push boundaries and break new ground at Ilm.
Disney's acquisition of Lucasfilm means Ilm will be working on more Disney movies, including all of those Marvel sequels and spin-offs that are planned throughout the rest of this decade. To celebrate, and for work purposes, the company has launched a new studio in London, and held a grand opening this past week. President Lynwen Brennan was there to speak with IGN, »

If there’s one thing we love more than watching movies it’s getting way too excited when talking about movies. And thanks to the internet it’s very easy to get that fix. A massive, rampant fan community is really what’s helped modern franchises like the Marvel Cinematic Universe grow; when there’s not a movie in cinemas there’s still plenty of fun to be had.
There’s obviously always the danger of spoilers, or of fan theories getting so close to the truth they end up ruining movies – people had called Talia al Ghul in The Dark Knight Rises, Khan in Star Trek Into Darkness or Gwen Stacy’s death in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 well before release. If you want to know how Avengers: Age Of Ultron ends then you can go looking in certain areas of the internet and find some »
