"There's like 47 of these people," he said of his large ensemble cast. "At some point during the editing process, I could not have told you who they were, who I was, what movie I was making. ... I got so lost in it."
For casual fans, movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe can be particularly daunting with years of comics mythology informing every character and moment. Simplicity was not the goal with "Ultron," which adds even more people to the already massive group.

Ben Rayner talks to Kabam! Studios’ Cuz Parry about Marvel’s Contest of Champions…
With Avengers: Age of Ultron arriving in cinemas with a crash in the past week, Marvel fever is reaching palpable levels. It’s no surprise then, that Marvel have teamed up with Kabam! Studios in order to release a free to play brawler that gives you the chance to fight as any of your favourite Marvel heroes.
While its free to play and not simply focused on the Avengers, what may surprise you, is that Marvel Contest of Champions is actually a decent brawler, one that I’ve spent the last few days absolutely hooked on, working my way up the ranks and unlocking as many of Marvels mightiest as possible!
Luckily, we had the chance to catch up with Cuz Parry, the creative director at Kabam! Studios, and talk all things Marvel!

Ensemble blockbuster earns £18m on first weekend smashing records for April openings, Saturday takes, superhero movies and single-day Disney revenues
The latest Marvel superhero blockbuster, Avengers: Age of Ultron, left a trail of devastation in its wake at the UK box office this weekend, with records smashed and previous chart-topper Fast & Furious left eating dust.
The film took £18m from 585 sites, which makes it the biggest opening of 2015, the eight biggest of all time, the biggest April opening ever, the biggest ever day for a superhero movie and Disney’s own best-ever day.

It isn't easy being Captain America. Out on the Avengers: Age Of Ultron press circuit, Chris Evans has been talking about his gruelling schedule, currently almost exclusively for Marvel, taking him well into 2017. And as part of that he's revealed something that we might have suspected but didn't actually know: both halves of the two part mega-epic Avengers: Infinity War will shoot together next year."You plan around the Marvel responsibilities; you have to," Evans tells Esquire. "We start [Captain America: Civil War] in a couple of weeks, and then that shoots until August or something like that. August or September. Then I've got some downtime and I can do with it as I please. I don't know if I want to take time off or go pursue another directing job or find a movie to act in or, you know, do whatever I'm creatively inclined to pursue or wait, relax, enjoy my life. »
It’s gearing up for a hell of a finale, but female characters don’t come out of this week’s Gotham very well…
This review contains spoilers.

Holy sexism, Batman! Only last week, Barbara’s Ogre strand was feeling like a breath of fresh air – a disliked supporting character was given a chance to bounce off a new villain before the main cast got to him. Good times. This week? Not so much. There wasn’t much of anything likeable in her portrayal this week, unfortunately.
We had high hopes that Barbara might get a heroic moment, wrong-footing the murderous misogynist villain at the crucial moment, and thus playing her part in the Batman-pre-empting crime-fighting action of the series.

The two Avengers: Infinity War movies will shoot back to back, starting in 2016, confirms Chris Evans.
With Avengers: Age Of Ultron already over the $200m mark at the global box office, ahead of its Us release later this week, the financial state of the Marvel cinematic universe is very much secure. Furthermore, it would be fair to say that the appetite for Avengers films remains really rather sizeable.
It's a good job Marvel has a couple more of them lined up, then.
Avengers: Infinity War is being split across two films as you probably know. The first will arrive in May 2018, and the second in May 2019. Both are being directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, who will presumably jump straight onto the project after they're done with Captain America: Civil War (which they're about to start filming any day now).
Chris Evans, chatting to Esquire, has confirmed that he'll be »
When I sat down to talk with the Avengers: Age of Ultron cast and writer-director Joss Whedon at the Los Angeles junket, I went in with a gameplan: ask them some fun questions and turn the answers into quick-cutting videos. I know some of you will be disappointed I didn’t use my time focusing on the movie, but since I did interviews on the set of Age of Ultron, and posted those over the past few months (links further down the page), I wanted to do something different. In the video below, Paul Bettany, James Spader, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Elizabeth Olsen, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Jeremy Renner, Cobie Smulders and Joss Whedon talk about the worst job they’ve ever had. Look for more Avengers: Age of Ultron coverage tomorrow and every day for the next week.

As superhero movie sequels go, Avengers: Age of Ultron sits nicely alongside the likes of Spider-Man 2 and The Dark Knight. Any fears you may have had about this movie failing to top its predecessor will be quickly forgotten when you see the Hulkbuster go to war with the Hulk or Captain America chastising Iron Man for his use of bad language. Oh, and you'll be relieved to know that the sequel doesn't repeat past mistakes; Ultron's army aren't the Chitauri, and the final battle is moved to a different and more interesting locale than New York City. Yes, it's true that the magic of seeing the heroes assembled is no longer there, but Avengers: Age of Ultron more than makes up for that with countless other fan pleasing moments and scenes. There's a lot of humour in the sequel too, and while that's bothered some fans, this is far »
The inevitable next step in Hollywood trends is for major franchise crossovers. We're almost there already with shared-universe mega-franchises from Marvel Studios and DC Entertainment. Avengers: Age of Ultron is basically a collective sequel for the separate Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk and Thor movie series, and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is technically Man of Steel 2, but also sort of a prequel to a planned solo series for the characters Wonder Woman and Aquaman, as well as to the crossover Justice League movies.There's also been talk of 23 Jump Street possibly being the same movie as Men In Black IV. And now it's time for Rush Hour 4: Face/Off 2. Watch the preview below. Rush Hour 4: Face/Off 2 with Sean Combs and...

Since kicking off in 2008 with Iron Man, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has continued to grow. While the focus was at first on creating The Avengers, Phase 2 has seen their world expand to cover an entire Galaxy as Kevin Feige looks to set the stage for the culmination of everything which has happened since Nick Fury broke into Tony Stark's house with Avengers: Infinity War. It's no longer just about Earth's Mightiest Heroes now, that's for sure, especially with Thanos out there! With Avengers: Age of Ultron just days away, now seems like a good time to look back on all ten of the Marvel Studios to have been released up until this point. Before you see and weigh in on Joss Whedon's sequel, which of Marvel's previous efforts do you think is the best? With any luck, the results of this poll will be able to create a definitive »

Kevin Polowy profiles the upcoming gangster film "Black Mass," saying this is finally "the Johnny Depp movie we've been waiting for." A new trailer shows Depp as real-life ruthless mobster Whitey Bulger, one of the most infamous people ever in American organized crime. Could this be Depp's ticket to a first Oscar win? Directed by Scott Cooper (who helped Jeff Bridges win an Academy Award for "Crazy Heart"), the film also stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Joel Edgerton, Kevin Bacon, Adam Scott, Jesse Plemons, Peter Sarsgaard, and Dakota Johnson. It opens nationally September 18 and is a likely candidate to premiere at the Toronto Film Festival the week before. Yahoo Movies -Break- With no big film wanting to open a week before "Avengers: Age of Ultron," the box office leader is once again "Furious 7" with another $18.26 million. Holdover "Paul Blart - Mall Cop 2" is in second place with $15.5 million. Newcomer &quo »
Who says superheroes can’t be stylish? Eschewing spandex and body armor for a more flattering look, geek girl apparel company Her Universe and Disney Consumer Products have partnered for a new line of clothes inspired by the heroes of “Marvel’s Avengers” (and the villainous Loki). The fashion line will be available mid-May exclusively at Hot Topic stores and HotTopic.com, with an online pre-sale already under way ahead of “Avengers: Age of Ultron’s” May 1 release.
The “Avengers” line features items designed by winners of the first-ever Her Universe “Geek Couture” Fashion Show held at last year’s San Diego Comic-Con, where attendees Amy Beth Christenson and Andrew MacLaine took top honors for their original creations. As part of the prize, they won the opportunity to design an exclusive fashion collection with Her Universe founder Ashley Eckstein for Hot Topic.

"Are you kiddingc Liam Neeson, come on! He gets mad and then has to kill the people. I love that!" If you think that's just some random Neeson fan talking about the action star in any of his three Taken films -- or perhaps any of his other recent work that fits the description, such as Non-Stop, A Walk Among the Tombstones, or Run All Night, to name a few -- you might be surprised to discover you're wrong. That's actually Joss Whedon talking to Film Divider (via The Playlist) about a spec script called Suspension he wrote more than twenty years ago. The film is an action-thriller in the vein of Die Hard and is centered on a man who, shortly upon his release from prison after serving 15 years for shooting a cop, must stop terrorists who have seized control of New York's George Washington Bridge during a traffic jam. »

Do you have what it takes to lift Thor.s hammer? Iron Man doesn.t. Bruce Banner doesn.t. Hawkeye doesn.t. Captain America, for the most part, doesn.t. But that didn.t stop any of these pedestrians from trying to wield Mjolnir after finding it on the street. Sadly for them, they would never be able to lift it because it was all part of a big prank. Trollstation is an online hidden camera show featuring a collective of pranksters from all over the world. Their work has included a variety of social experiments (like when they faked a domestic abuse scenario to see how people would react) and classic shenanigans (like chasing after pedestrians while wearing police attire). But in honor of the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron, which hit international theaters last weekend, they decided to see if anyone on Earth was capable of lifting »
Joss Whedon's tired. There is a certain kind of fatigue that is particular to the directors of these giant mega-budget high stakes sequels, and if you end up talking to one of those directors, you can see it in their eyes. They're zombies. I remember talking to Gore Verbinski near the end of the third "Pirates" film, and it was like he was having an out of body experience. Because Whedon's tired, he's been candid about some of the speed bumps they experienced making the new "Avengers" film. He's spoken in the past few days about the decision to bring Coulson back to life after "The Avengers," the things he regrets about "Agents Of Shield," and more. When I sat down to speak with him a few days after seeing the film, I told him that I wanted to ask about an amazing sequence that was in the original »

Avengers: Age of Ultron may be cleaning up across the globe ahead of its arrival in the States on May 1, but ardent Marvel fans have one eye trained on the undisputed heavyweight among the company’s slate of upcoming films. Yes, Thanos is remaining aloof in his chair floating across some unknown corner of the universe, but it is the film that the Mad Titan represents that has us all giddy with excitement: Avengers: Infinity War.
As the culmination of Phases Two and Three – and indeed the foundations laid all the way back in Phase One – of Marvel’s grand cinematic universe, the ensemble piece is certainly garnering attention among Marvelites ahead of its debut in 2018. Split into two segments, Part I will arrive on May of 2018 with the conclusive Part II landing hot on its heels in time for May, 2019.
Such a colossal sequel deserves an equally colossal production schedule, »
