Ever since Joss Whedon announced that one of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes may not make it out of Avengers: Age of Ultron alive, fans have speculated that Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) would be the one to bite the dust. Out of the superhero team, Hawkeye’s been given the shortest shrift and the least amount of both screentime and character development, so killing him off wouldn’t really affect the larger McU that killing someone like Tony Stark or Captain America would.
Renner recently appeared on Larry King Live, and was asked point blank if he would die in Age of Ultron. His answer?
“No no. No, I don’t die. I think they want to keep [characters] around for a while.”
This jives well with Renner’s recent comments about Hawkeye possibility showing up in Captain America 3. Obviously, it could also be a case of misdirection, as the actor would likely »

It was recently reported that Jeremy Renner may reprise his Hawkeye role in "Captain America 3." But because of multiple hints by director Joss Whedon that certain characters will be replaced, fans believe that Hawkeye will die in "Avengers: Age of Ultron." Spoilers Ahead: In a new interview with Larry King, the actor was directly asked if he will die in the "Avengers" sequel. "No, no," Renner replied. "No, I don't die. I think they want to keep me around for a while." "Avengers: Age of Ultron" is set to hit theaters on May 1st, 2015. "Captain America 3" will follow on May 6th, 2016. »
(Cbr) The "Age of Ultron" will soon be upon us, and Clint Barton is armoring up accordingly. Empire has a high-res look at Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye in "Avengers: Age of Ultron," depicting the eagle-eyed archer’s new costume. The big news: sleeves! It’s much more of a superhero uniform than what Hawkeye wore in his first "Avengers" tour of duty, but alas, still no mask. In the same feature, director Joss Whedon gives new details about what to expect from his follow-up to "The Avengers," and what he has planned for the titular robot menace. “It’s more epic and in other ways it’s more noirish and suspect and devious and specific,” he said. “Ultron, he’s got a touch of the apocalypse in him.” Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige adds, “Ultron was the villain Joss wanted, from midway through production on the first film, to have serious repercussions for the Avengers. »

We all know that the members of the Avengers team from the first movie are all coming back for Avengers: Age of Ultron and that they’ll be augmented by Paul Bettany as The Vision and Aaron Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen as the magical-don’t-call-us-mutant brother and sister duo of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch. However, a rumor originating from Badass Digest suggests a much bigger sea change is on the horizon. Possible Age of Ultron Spoilers ahead…
The very nature and fun of the Avengers team is its revolving door, which allows for greater tonal shifts as the remaining characters evolve. Throughout the comics there have been several major change ups to the roster. As Devin from Badass points out, after only being introduced as a member in Avengers #4, Captain America replaced all of the original team members in Avengers #16. Well, it looks like Cap could be reorganizing the team »

Badass Digest reveals that, at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America (Chris Evans) will assemble a brand new team of Avengers for Phase Three. While the site wouldn't reveal who this new team will include, one name that has been in every version of the script is Carol Danvers, a.k.a. Captain Marvel. However, now Marvel is "having cold feet" about bringing Captain Marvel into the Marvel Cinematic Universe this way.
The exact lineup of the new Avengers has not been finalized, and this scene was not shot during principal photography, which wrapped earlier this month. Marvel reportedly may pull Captain Marvel from this new lineup because they aren't sure if »
Jeremy Renner says Hawkeye doesn't die in Avengers: Age of Ultron, and he told it to Larry King. I guess this worry of Hawkeye dying was somehow related to the shot at the end of the Age of Ultron Comic-Con footage, but I thought we'd all decided that was a dream sequence or Scarlet Witch fantasy. Plus Renner's been saying he might be in Captain America 3 and, yeah, there are time-altering Infinity Stones, but I still think Cap 3 takes place after Avengers: Age of Ultron.
So: don't worry. That thing you didn't know you had to worry about isn't happening.
The three-time Oscar nominee for Gladiator, Walk the Line, and The Master has been mentioned before as one of the contenders for the role of Dr. Stephen Strange, but Collider reported today that Phoenix is in final talks and sources close to the film confirm to EW he is their top choice for the role.
Marvel did not immediately respond to request for official comment, but studio president Kevin Feige has long talked »

Many have been vocal about the need for more female superheroes, perhaps more so than ever, and Kevin Feige has admitted that the team at Marvel is paying attention. There’s been talk about Ms. Marvel making a big screen appearance for quite some time now. Remember that rumor from two years ago claiming that Emily Blunt and Ruth Wilson were top choices for the character? In the comics, the members of the Avengers are always changing, so it’ll always be tough to pinpoint who’s in, who’s out, who will join an ensemble film and who will get their own, however, there have been reports floating around claiming that Ms. Marvel could make her way into a close-approaching Marvel film and pave the way to Phase Three in the process. But now Marvel's plans for introducing Ms. Marvel into the McU may be changing. Hit the jump for more. »

Potential Major Spoilers Ahead
It has been expected that "The Avengers" films will ultimately involve a revolving roster of superhero characters. As actors finish up their multi-contract deals, their characters will depart and be replaced with new ones introduced at different points be it in their own standalone films or in small roles in others.
A new report from Bad Ass Digest though indicates that may be happening a lot quicker than expected. The site seems to have seen an earlier version of the film's script and says that by the end of "Avengers: Age of Ultron," the team roster will be significantly changed.
In fact, 'Ultron' apparently ends with Captain America assembling a whole new team, some familiar faces and some whole new ones, which partly explains all the vague talk about which Marvel heroes will be joining Steve Rogers in the third "Captain America" film.
According to the report, »

Now that The Avengers have assembled on the big screen, everyone is very familiar with Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye. But those aren't even the original Avengers, and they're not going to always be the superheroes who assemble to save the world. As Marvel continues to broaden their cinematic universe, they're introducing new characters who will replace the original team eventually. But the question is just who will step up to join the team? Doctor Strange and Ant-Man are on the way, but that's only two people. Well, a new rumor says we might find out next year who else might enter the superhero assembly mix by way of The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Read on! **Minor Spoilers from here on out regarding The Avengers: Age of Ultron** Badass Digest reports that at the end of The Avengers: Age of Ultron, we'll see »

With Quicksilver, The Scarlet Witch and Vision all set to join the team in Avengers: Age of Ultron, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is getting pretty crowded. Having all of these heroes fighting side-by-side in The Avengers 3 would surely rob many of them of sufficient screen time, making the line-up far too powerful in the process. Well, Badass Digest believes that Marvel's response to this will be having Captain America assemble a new team at the end of the 2015 movie. The scene may not have been shot as of yet, but one character who was at one point expected to be there is Carol Danvers, a.k.a. Ms. Marvel (the script specifies that moniker rather than Captain Marvel) in what is described as little more than a cameo. "This isn't a big part of the movie. This new version of The Avengers isn't involved in an action sequence or anything. »
"No, I don't die. I think they want to keep me around for a while."
There has been a fan theory circulating for quite some time that Hawkeye may meet his maker in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Hawkeye and Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow are the only two Avengers who don't have their own stand-alone movie yet, but that could change in the near future, since Marvel plans on keeping him around.
This comes just a few days after the actor hinted his character may surface in the Marvel Phase Three adventure Captain »
Potential Avengers: Age of Ultron spoilers below. Proceed with caution. Marvel Studios Kevin Feige might be vague, but he very rarely lies. He told us Thanos would be in Guardians of the Galaxy years before it happened. He proclaimed that Captain America: The Winter Soldier would change the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and it did.

This seemed like a foregone conclusion, didn't it? We've heard from multiple scoopers that Captain Marvel, aka Carol Danvers, aka Ms. Marvel, would appear in Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age of Ultron. It was never confirmed, but in July it seemed to have more credence when Joss Whedon declared there were "four prominent female roles" in his upcoming comic book movie. Though, in the past every time Captain Marvel has been mentioned as being apart the film it is stressed that the part is just a cameo. Now, sources for Devin Faraci of Badass Digest are reporting that Marvel Studios is second guessing that Captain Marvel cameo. McU update: sources tell me Marvel is getting cold feet about Captain Marvel in Age Of Ultron. They're not sure they want to intro her cold. — Devin Faraci (@devincf) August 28, 2014 It's important to note that Captain Marvel is written as a Cameo in Ultron. »
In an interview with the Toronto Sun, Robert Downey Jr., the star of Marvel’s “Iron Man” series as well as “The Avengers,” said he thought that this summer’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” is the best Marvel film to date.
“Galaxy in some ways is the best Marvel movie ever,” Downey Jr. told the newspaper. “And it’s odd for someone with — on occasion — an ego the size of mine to actually say that!”
Downey Jr., whose upcoming film “The Judge” will premiere at the Toronto Film Festival on Sept. 4, said he was impressed that Marvel was able to take a group of less well known characters from their comic books and turn them into a successful film.
“It’s like you have a great quarterback, and his brother plays for another team, and then you say: ‘Look, this is their second cousin and we think he has a »

At this point, we only have a vague idea of what Avengers: Age of Ultron is even about. But now we know how it’s going to end, at least for one major character. In a recent chat with Larry King, Jeremy Renner addressed a certain rumor about Hawkeye’s fate in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Hit […]

Now that Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy have made 2014 the best year yet for Marvel, all eyes are on Avengers: Age of Ultron director Joss Whedon to follow suit and bring an exciting end to Phase Two of the McU.
He promises to do that with the biggest Marvel film yet, featuring the familiar roster of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes as well as some new faces like Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen as “The Twins,” Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, respectively.
In a new interview with Empire, Whedon talks a bit about how Age of Ultron differs from its bar-raising 2012 predecessor, saying:
“It’s more epic and in other ways it’s more noirish and suspect and devious and specific. Ultron, he’s got a touch of the apocalypse in him.”
The inclusion of Ultron in the Avengers sequel came as a bit of a surprise for fans, »
