There are two months left until Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters, which may seem like a painfully long time but is really nothing compared to the two years and ten months we’ve already been waiting for it. In the meantime, Marvel Studios is happy to tide us over with the occasional tidbit, like the new Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer promised earlier this week.
Joss Whedon returns to direct the superpowered gang, including Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk, and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye.
In addition, the latest trailer offers a good look at some of the Avengers’ new friends and foes, including Paul Bettany as Vision. Watch the new Avengers Age of Ultron trailer after the jump.

In June 2014, I visited the London set of Avengers: Age of Ultron. Over the last couple months we have posted our on set interviews with Mark Ruffalo, Robert Downey Jr, director Joss Whedon, and Chris Hemsworth. Today we’ve been given the green light to publish our interview with two more Avengers. This morning we posted our interview with Hawkeye, Jeremy Renner, and this post contains our interview with Captain America himself Chris Evans. Here is a short snippet from Evans explaining how Captain America has to really earn his spot on this team of superheroes:
With the second Captain America we really pushed the envelope in terms of what this guy is capable of which I was excited to see. Because in the first Captain America he’s just strong. In Avengers it was still, in my opinion, a little bit punch, punch, kick, kick. You just can’t be Jason Bourne. We gotta see this guy do stuff that’s like yeah, he deserves a spot on this squad. You know, in [Winter Soldier] he’s pinballing off of jets and doing unbelievable things. I don’t wanna take a step back so we gotta make sure that he’s continuing training. His fight style needs to advance a little bit. I don’t wanna go full Bruce Lee, but there needs to be more than just haymakers and fun kicks. There needs to be a consistent display of strength. Utilize your environment in a way that’s like, “that’s right he can pick up a motorcycle with one hand…” Let’s, let’s not forget that I can get punched by a human and get knocked down. It just doesn’t make sense to me. So that’s the only thing and that’s a tough thing to try to remember. You know, even in Avengers, you know, I punched a heavy bag across a room. If I hit a person he’s not getting back up. It’s just the way it’s gonna go, so we can’t do this any other way.

As much as we’re all looking forward to Joss Whedon’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, fans are already looking beyond that film. Specifically, they’re looking towards May 6, 2016 and Captain America: Civil War. Directed by the Russo Brothers, the film will feature two of Marvel’s most popular superheroes, Captain America and Iron Man, going head to head. The conflict not only kicks off Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it might even set the stage for the return of Spider-Man.
Though the title says “Captain America,” the inclusion of Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man is what makes Civil War so epic. He’s the biggest movie star in the world. And yet, in a new interview, Downey stresses that Civil War is “Steve’s story,” meaning Steve Rogers as played by Chris Evans. He also talks a bit about the conflict between the two characters. Read the Robert Downey Jr Civil War quotes below. Read More »

We know who’s directing Captain America 3, we know who’s starring in Captain America 3, and we even have some idea of the plot details for Captain America 3. Now we know the title, too.
Marvel Studios revealed at its event today that Captain America 3 will be called Captain America: Civil War, as many had already suspected. (Not, it won’t be Serpent Society as first teased at the event.) Also confirmed was the release date of the movie: May 6, 2016. In addition to Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, it’ll officially debut Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
