Avengers: Age Of Ultron might be the end of Phase Two but, according to one of its new members, it’s just the beginning.
While the first footage from Avengers: Age of Ultron was undoubtedly the highlight of Marvel’s 2014 Comic-Con panel, a few of the actors on stage (which included Robert Downey Jr., Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Colbie Smulders, Samuel L. Jackson, Chris Evans, Aaron Taylor Johnson, Paul Bettany, James Spader, Elizabeth Olsen and eventually Josh Brolin, who showed up at the end.) dropped hints at what their characters might mean for the future. In particular Olsen – who plays the Scarlet Witch – said that she and Quicksilver (Taylor-Johnson) coming into the mix sets the tone for the upcoming Marvel films. Read her, and more Avengers Age of Ultron cast quotes, below.
UPDATE: You can also now watch the full panel. Read More »

All those production delays meant Ant-Man didn’t go in front of cameras early enough for Marvel to show us Paul Rudd or Michael Douglas in action at Comic-Con. But it wouldn’t be like Marvel to show up to Hall H completely empty-handed, and so they “filmed a little something to show you guys,” as Kevin Feige put it.
We were treated to a brief bit of Ant-Man footage, really an FX test with voiceover. Hit the jump to get our Ant-Man footage recap and reaction.

By now, you’ve probably seen the trailer for Kevin Smith‘s Tusk. And if not, click here and check it out. Revealed in Smith’s annual Hall H panel at Comic-Con, the footage shows a very different Smith from the “snoochie boochies” days of the past. This is a Smith with something messed up to say. And, according to the writer/director/podcaster, he’s going to be saying much more of it.
On his panel, Smith also revealed Tusk is the first film in what he hopes will be a trilogy of films he called “The True North Trilogy.” Likely a reference to a similar Canadian setting, Tusk would be followed by Yoga Hosers (which Smith wants to make next, and be PG-13) and a new movie called Moose Jaws which he described as “Jaws, with a moose.” All three films would return the same actors as Tusk.

The world of Hannibal is a deadly serious one, full of intelligent psychopaths able to realize their ”designs” with terrifying precision. But as the Hannibal Season 2 gag reel shows, the set of Hannibal looks much more lighthearted.
After the jump, watch Mads Mikkelsen, Hugh Dancy, and the rest of the cast screw up during takes and screw around between them.

It only took “three movies, ten video games, and 80 television episodes” by one director’s count, but the scene-stealing penguins from Madagascar are finally getting their own movie this fall. And based on what we saw at DreamWorks Animation’s Penguins of Madagascar Comic-Con panel on Thursday, they certainly deserve it.
Directors Eric Darnell and Simon J. Smith and star/producer Tom McGrath were on hand to present twenty minutes of never-before-seen footage from the animated adventure, while stars John Malkovich and Benedict Cumberbatch helped crank up the excitement just by being their charming selves. Hit the jump to get the panel highlights including recaps of the footage.
[Update: A new clip and a new poster have just hit the web -- check 'em out after the jump.]
