After revealing the Iron Man Mark 43 figure from its Avengers: Age of Ultron line earlier this week , Hot Toys has taken to the Toy Soul convention in Hong Kong to showcase even more collectibles for the highly-anticipated Marvel sequel. In addition to Hulkbuster, Captain America, Black Widow, Thor, Hawkeye, Hulk, and a variation of Iron Man's Mark 43 armor, Hot Toys also displayed the mad villain of the Avengers: Infinity War movies, Thanos, as he appeared in Guardians of the Galaxy. Marvel Studios presents Avengers: Age of Ultron, the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time. When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance.

The spec was written by Zach Frankel and was selected for the 2014 Black List that was announced earlier this week.
The spec tells the story of a 14-year-old football fanatic, dying of cancer, who wishes to meet with his favorite football star, Butchie Jones (Mackie), only to then coerce his idol into helping him “score” before his time runs out.
Mackie has a busy 2015 ahead of him with “Our Brand Is Crisis,” “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Triple Nine” and the untitled Christmas movie all bowing next year. He is repped by UTA and Inspire Entertainment.
Simien is repped by Wme and Oasis Media Group. Deadline Hollywood first reported the news.

Like Joss Whedon ("Avengers: Age of Ultron"), James Gunn is multi-talented, he can write and direct a film. When he was rewriting Nicole Perlman's Guardians of the Galaxy script he encountered many challenges. Gunn tells Vulture, writing the character introductions were incredibly challenging, and required many rewrites to satisfy his own expectations. Though, Gunn admits that one scene in particular was the most difficult of them all and that was when Ronan (Lee Pace) is summoned to Sanctuary, Thanos' (voiced by Josh Brolin) base of operations. There’s pressure with Thanos because you’re setting up this gigantic character that, in one way, isn’t really a part of your movie. His presence doesn’t really serve being in Guardians, and having Thanos be in that scene was more helpful to the Marvel universe than it was to Guardians of the Galaxy. I always wanted to have Thanos in there, »
One notable absentee from Marvel’s colossal and expansive filmic slate was love for Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk. Before the studio mapped out the remainder of Phase Two and the early stages of Phase Three, it was long rumored that the lumbering, green-tinged rage monster would get his own movie — particularly after Ruffalo’s turn in Avengers back in 2012 — but it appears as though a standalone film isn’t on the cards…for now.
During a recent set visit, IGN had the opportunity to talk to Joss Whedon about all things Hulk, including his role in Age of Ultron, that fabled solo outing as well as teasing that “something terrible” is coming.
Everybody loves Mark [Ruffalo]. He’s phenomenal. But the fact that there hasn’t been a Hulk since that Hulk, it doesn’t suck. I mean, my job is hard enough. Cap’s had a movie, Thor’s had a movie. »

Ant-Man really does feel like the red-headed stepchild of the Marvel franchise right now. I know it hasn't been forgotten and we'll hear more about it in the not-too-distant future, but right now it has the misfortune of coming off the heels of Avengers: Age of Ultron, but it's not considered big enough to kick off Phase Three (which will begin with Captain America: Civil War). That's not to mention the production drama that went down before filming. But that doesn't mean the movie won't be good, and I'm excited to see a film that looks different from anything we've seen before in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Evangeline Lilly is excited too, and she recently commented on the upcoming superhero movie. Hit the jump for what she had to say. Ant-Man opens July 17, 2015, and also stars Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Corey Stoll, Bobby Cannavale, Judy Greer, Tip "Ti" Harris, David Dastmalchian, »

THR has released an official list of the most viewed trailers of 2014. And you may be surprised to see which movie came in first. While a lot of your are probably guessing Star Wars: The Force Awakens, it was actually Fifty Shades of Grey that took top honors. While Star Wars: The Force Awakens had the best start of the year, grabbing 58.2 million views in its first five days of release, it was Fifty Shades of Grey that won the race with its four month head start. The trailer has been viewed 93 million times on Youtube since its July 24 release. Don't feel too bad for Star Wars 7, though, as it came in second place with 81 million Youtube views since its debut over Thanksgiving weekend. In third place was Avengers: Age of Ultron with 78 million views. Here is the full top 20 list of most watched trailers followed by the trailers themselves. »
With Mark Ruffalo's The Hulk not getting a solo movie (for now, anyway), many Marvel fans are very excited to see him back on the big screen in Avengers: Age Of Ultron. We already know The Hulk will have a bigger role in the upcoming film, and while speaking with IGN, Joss Whedon talked about the expansion of the character, and if he'll talk more in The Avengers sequel. His monologue about his childhood is very poignant and lacks pronouns. No. You know, the talking thing is »

Welcome To Issue 76!
If This Is Your First Time Here: Welcome! This is my weekly column where I talk about superhero movie news, rumors and speculation.
This Week: A mostly hack-free column (one link in there, but I get it out of the way quick)! First we update on the Spider-Man deal, then we talk through the plot of Avengers: Age of Ultron assuming the new Lego sets aren't lying to us.
Lots going on in the Marvel Universe this week, or at least the perception that there is a lot going on, because some set visit interviews from Avengers: Age of Ultron solidified some rumored plot developments and a Lego set for the film does what Lego sets do: have us wondering if we’re being sold cool brick guys or being told about the progression of action scenes in the film.
Then, there’s Spider-Man.

Joss Whedon wasn't sure he wanted to direct Avengers: Age of Ultron. When we caught up with him on the London set of the film this Summer, he admitted making the original Avengers left him feeling "ragged," exhausted, and not 100 percent sure whether he could take on a second film about the superhero squad. "It did take a lot out of me," he said. "Going in this time, I just had to sort of recalibrate my entire existence and throw myself into it more wholeheartedly and say, 'Ok. I'm gonna just invest myself in every part of it - in every production meeting, every location scout, and every question about a prop that I'd like to avoid.' I'm gonna give myself up to it like a Christian to a lion." Whedon's obvious passion for the characters overrode any doubts he might have had about his second outing in the franchise's director's chair. »
There’s less than five months to go before Marvel brings the curtain down on Phase Two of the Cinematic Universe with Avengers: Age of Ultron, and the director has been speaking in depth to IGN about the hotly-anticipated sequel, including expanding the world of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes with the introduction of new characters like The Vision, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, and of course the AI villain Ultron.
” I wanted Paul [Bettany] to play this part since before I wanted to make Avengers movies,” states Whedon on The Vision. “He’s just got, let’s face it, it’s about cheek bones, people… Before I took the first job, I said, ‘Well, I don’t know if I’m right for this, or if I want it, or you want me, but in the second one, the villain has to be Ultron, and he has to create the Vision.’ And »

Zefr, a YouTube data and marketing company, have revealed a list of the most popular movie trailer launches of the year and the winners may not be what you expect.
Taking the top spot is the first trailer for "Fifty Shades of Grey" released back in July. That clip has clocked up 93 million views, ahead of the teaser trailer for "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" which scored 81 million views. To be fair, 'Grey' had the time advantage considering the 'Force' trailer only scored a release less than three weeks ago.
Behind them was "Avengers: Age of Ultron" in third with 78 million views, "Jurassic World" with 64 million views, the first "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" trailer with 58 million views, and the "Furious 7" trailer with 57.5 million views.

It looks like Joss Whedon is once again going to blow Marvel fans away with the Avengers. The footage we've seen from Avengers: Age of Ultron looks insanely cool, but there's still so much more that has yet to be revealed. There are a bunch of interviews with the director from the set of the film that have surfaced, and in them he discusses a lot of different aspects about the movie, including the fact that he initially didn't want to do it! He explained to /Film,
"I didn’t actually want to make the film necessarily. I was ragged from the first one, and so I just turned off my brain. I was like, do not think of cool ideas for the next one. Just get through this. But after a few months when they talked about, um… This is now something that makes sense in my life; do I have anything to say? »

By this stage in the game, Marvel fans the world over have one eye trained on May 1, 2015 in anticipation of Avengers: Age of Ultron, but for a brief period in the early stages of development the sequel — or, rather, Joss Whedon’s involvement in it — wasn’t such a sure thing.
During a set visit over the summer months, the director spoke candidly with Collider and revealed that while he soon found ideas spewing out of him for the superhero follow-up, he initially had his doubts about picking up the megaphone and baseball cap once more.

When Joss Whedon’s Avengers: Age of Ultron was filming in London last summer, I got to visit the set along with a few other reporters. Like most Marvel set visits, they let us talk to the entire cast and watch filming. While the production was guarded about what they were willing to tell us, we learned a ton of cool secrets behind what’s bound to be one of the biggest films of 2015. In The Avengers sequel, Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) reunite to stop Ultron (James Spader) from carrying out his sinister plan. The film also stars Elizabeth Olsen, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Paul Bettany, Don Cheadle,Andy Serkis, and Samuel L. Jackson. While on set, I participated in a great group interview with Joss Whedon. He talked about how making The Avengers »

On June 12th 2014, I visited the London set of Avengers: Age of Ultron. In October, we posted our on set interviews with Mark Ruffalo and Robert Downey Jr. Today we’ve been given the green light to publish our interview with Avengers series director Joss Whedon. Here is a short snippet from Joss explaining why he decided to […]

Shepperton Studios, Middlesex - Joss Whedon looked tired. And not just a little tired, either. He looked weary, deep down in his bones tired. He looked like he was ready to just fall down where he was and sleep for a week. I've seen a number of other directors in this state and it's always when they're near the end of production on one of these mega-movies. The pressure that's on these guys in enormous, and for Whedon, following up one of the biggest films of all time can't be easy. We sat in a small group facing Whedon in the Tony Stark lab, part of the Avengers Tower set, and asked him what his primary goal was walking into the sequel. "On the first one, I was a raggedy man when I made that film. It did take a lot out of me. Going in this time, I was like… »
