You didn’t think a blockbuster as big and buzzy as Avengers: Age of Ultron would escape the Honest Trailers treatment, did you? In the latest installment of their ongoing series, the Screen Junkies team give the Marvel blockbuster the skewering it deserves, calling it “the movie equivalent of emptying out your entire toy box and smashing all your action figures into each other.” Yeah, that sounds about right.

One of the biggest victims of Avengers: Age of Ultron‘s overstuffed narrative was Thor. The god disappeared into a seemingly out-of-nowhere side quest that didn’t raise a whole lot of interest or make a whole lot of sense, raising the question of why the film bothered giving him a subplot at all.
The answer, as you may have already read, is that Thor was originally supposed to have a much meatier subplot to himself. Unfortunately, with the film threatening to go over the three-hour mark, something had to get cut, and that something was Thor. But thanks to the film’s upcoming Blu-ray release, we can finally see what we was missing in the film. Watch the Avengers Age of Ultron Thor deleted scene after the jump. Read More »

Not so long ago, in 2014, Drew Goddard was working on Marvel’s Daredevil, and scheduled to write and direct Sinister Six for Sony. That was before the Sony email hack, and the new plan for Spider-Man to be produced by Marvel, and a host of other events and decisions.
Goddard is no longer making the Sinister Six movie because that movie is no longer happening. But the plan for that film, which he calls “the giant, epic Spider-Man movie of my dreams,” was originally set to have it take place somewhat outside movie continuity, and Goddard says it could be revived if Marvel and Sony want it.

For some time now, we’ve known that the new Spider-Man entering the Marvel cinematic universe in Captain America: Civil War will be a high school-aged Peter Parker. However, we had yet to hear specifically how old the webslinger will be until today.
Director Jon Watts has been making the rounds talking about his indie thriller Cop Car, and while speaking about the first solo outing for his high school wallcrawler, he confirmed what age Spider-Man will be in the 2017 movie. Read More »
When Chris Evans was sought after and eventually won the role of Steve Rogers in Captain America: The First Avengers, some fans were a little bent out of shape about that because the actor had already played the Human Torch in 20th Century Fox’s Fantastic Four. To some, it just seemed like overkill to have the same actor play two different Marvel superheroes.
However, as we’ve seen, the Marvel cinematic universe is far removed from what 20th Century Fox did with Fantastic Four or what Sony Pictures did with Spider-Man. And in the end, Chris Evans has turned out to one of the best parts of the Marvel cinematic universe, and easily one of the favorite Avengers on the team. So it all worked out.
But now that the Marvel cinematic universe has been established, is there a chance that we could see actors playing two Marvel characters in that comic book world? Thor: The Dark World star Zachary Levi reveals that he has spoken to Kevin Feige about that very question, and the answer might surprise you. Read More »
