We didn’t know how big it would be, but when news broke that Stellan Skarsgård was returning for Joss Whedon‘s first Avengers film, we knew it was a big deal. Skarsgård’s character, Dr. Erik Selvig, appeared in the Thor post-credit scene and was a key piece in Loki’s plan to take over Earth. The question now is, if he comes back for Avengers: Age of Ultron, would it be for a story role that is equally as important?
We’ll find out soon, because in a new interview Skarsgård confirmed that he is indeed coming back for the May 1, 2015 sequel. Read the Stellan Skarsgard Avengers: Age of Ultron news below. Read More »

You may wonder why people sleep on concrete overnight at San Diego Comic-Con to see Marvel’s Hall H panel every year. You can find a small answer below. Besides the awesome news and huge stars Marvel parades across the stage, the studio is all about theatrics. The lights go down, a video comes up, and 6,500 people have no idea what’s about to play. In 2014, it was a retrospective sizzle reel to set up what’s about to happen. Marvel played a five-plus minute retrospective to pump up the fans and pass the torch to this weekend’s Marvel film, Guardians of the Galaxy.
We can’t duplicate the electricity of 6,500 people clapping and cheering in unison, or the fatigue and stench that results from the long wait to get in to Hall H. But you can watch the Marvel Comic Con sizzle reel below. Read More »
