Most of the Avengers: Age of Ultron marketing has, quite reasonably, focused on the franchise’s marquee superheroes: Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, and the like. But as the superpowered sequel nears release, Marvel Studios has released a batch of images that put some of the supporting players in the spotlight.
That includes Rhodey (Don Cheadle), Baron Strucker (Thomas Kretschmann), Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie), and Ulysses Klaw (Andy Serkis). Though the big names get some love too. After the jump, flip through the latest Avengers Age of Ultron images. Plus, check out another Avengers Age of Ultron clip and featurette.

For the last thirty years, no one seemed to give a shit about a movie adaptation of The Incredible Hulk. Universal made two attempts to bring the character to the big screen, once in 2003 with director Ang Lee and star Eric Bana and later in 2008 with director Louis Leterrier and star Edward Norton. Both films failed to become big box office hits, the later despite a cameo from hot-off-Iron Man Robert Downey Jr., reprising his role as Tony Stark.
No one cared about the Incredible Hulk until writer/director Joss Whedon brought the character to the big screen in The Avengers with Mark Ruffalo playing Bruce Banner. And since that film hit in 2012, everyone and their mother has asked Mark Ruffalo, Joss Whedon and Marvel head Kevin Feige when we’ll see the big green guy get his own movie. And we’ve heard many excuses over those years. And now we might have an answer as to why Marvel is not making a Hulk stand-alone movie right now. Find out who owns the Hulk movie rights and lets take a trip down the history of developments for the Ruffalo Hulk stand-alone movie.

The cast went from Jimmy Kimmel Live where they played Family Feud, analyzed fan art and were interviewed, then walked across Hollywood Blvd. to the world premiere of Avengers: Age of Ultron at the Dolby Theater.

Below, we’ve got the Avengers Family Feud video along with some other Kimmel videos and a selection of the best red carpet photos from the premiere. Check them out below. Read More »
In October 2014, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige took the stage in Hollywood and let the world know Marvel’s grand plan for Phase Three. Three months later, the biggest Marvel superhero there is - Spider-Man – was added to the plan. That happened when Sony, the company which controls the movie rights to the web-slinger, came to an agreement with Marvel over creative control of the character and allowed his incorporation into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
You’d think Spider-Man joining the MCU would have been a shake up of epic proportions. Not the case, according to Feige. In our interview for Avengers: Age of Ultron, the Marvel president gave us a little peek at how Marvel works by explaining that they had a plan already in place in case Spider-Man became available again. Read Feige’s quote about the Marvel Spiderman movie below. Read More »
It’s that time again: the Marvel publicity machine has kicked into full gear as the Avengers: Age of Ultron press tour gets underway, and that means that producer Kevin Feige is out there giving an MCU update, answering questions about all aspects of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Feige is often guarded about giving out real information, but there are still a great many comments to parse, with respect to the future of the MCU, the directorial shift in Avengers movies (with bonus Joss Whedon comments), and upcoming characters such as Captain Marvel and, of course, Spider-Man.

For months, Marvel has been very circumspect about showing off the final costume design for Daredevil. That changed last week as the Netflix series prepped to launch on the streaming service, and with all episodes now available there’s no shortage of ways to see the final suit. But Marvel and Netflix are trying to keep the reveal in hand by offering up a couple of official images — at least one of which you’ve probably already seen on the show’s launch page within Netflix. See the Daredevil final costume shots below. Read More »

Unless you’re Joss Whedon, many Marvel fans spent their weekend binging on the first Netflix series, Daredevil. We’ve posted a few thoughts on the series and will have more soon as everyone catches up on the superhero show.
One of those fans who got to watch the series was another Marvel director, James Gunn. Gunn is a longtime Daredevil fan and, like many people, felt a bit skeptical about the show at first. Well, that changed when he watched the first few episodes and Gunn took to Facebook to heap praise on the show. Read the James Gunn Daredevil quotes below. Read More »
One of our favorite moments from Daredevil is the climactic fight sequence which ends Episode 2. Its probably my favorite television action sequence in recent years. So when I got a chance to talk to the cast and crew of Daredevil, all I wanted to know was how they pulled off that sequence. For those of you who haven’t yet watched the Netflix television series, the second episode ends with Daredevil in full vigilante mode, attempting to break into a baddie’s hideout to save someone.
The sequence lasts five and a half minutes long, with a three-minute fight in the middle, and is incredibly well choreographed. When I first saw it I almost stopped breathing as I realized the beauty of this single take. I’ll admit, it looks like the shot could be visually stitched together using three different takes (as was done in Birdman) but and according to those involved, the fight scene you see is the result of one lone single shot. Lets find out how they did that Daredevil fight scene, after the jump.
