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.

“Hey, if that other guy can do it…”
When Chris Evans talks about wanting to leave acting behind, maybe he’s talking about movies like Playing it Cool, once called A Many Splintered Thing. The romcom follows a screenwriter who just wants to write action, but is talked into writing a romcom… and somewhere along the way, this self-professed love-hater falls for a charming young woman (Michelle Monaghan). In truth, this doesn’t look bad, just terribly lacking in character. And that’s despite a great supporting cast, which includes Aubrey Plaza, Anthony Mackie, Topher Grace, Luke Wilson, Philip Baker Hall, Giovanni Ribisi and Martin Starr. Check out the Playing it Cool trailer below. Read More »
We don’t know plans for the Captain America 3 ending, and frankly wouldn’t say if we did. The film is still two years away and hasn’t started production yet. With The Winter Soldier coming to Blu-ray, however, the Russo Brothers just happen to be talking about the film. Some of the biggest questions they’re fielding surround the fate of Chris Evans‘ character. The last film gave him two formidable characters to whom he might pass the Captain America shield: Sebastian Stan‘s Bucky and Anthony Mackie‘s Falcon. With Evans’ Marvel contract running out soon, that pass seems like a viable option.
It becomes even more of a viable option when you look at Marvel’s first threequel, Iron Man 3, which wrapped up Tony Stark’s story in a nice bow with a fourth film nowhere to be seen. Could Chris Evans’ Captain America story be ending on May 6, 2016 with a new hero continuing the story? Yes and no, say the directors. Read More »
