Age of Ultron featurette

Regardless of your feelings about Avengers: Age of Ultron, seeing the process of creation for a movie like that one is always fascinating. With so many moving parts to juggle, from actors and their characters and storylines to locations, effects, and all the post-production details, there are innumerable tricks and secrets to learn.

Yesterday we saw an Age of Ultron featurette showing some of the creation of Vision; today we have three more. One explains the effects that brought some powers to life. Two others explore how James Spader interacted on set with other actors including Mark Ruffalo, Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson. (One neat bit: during takes, they had to use balls mounted a couple feet above Spader’s head as an eyeline for the giant Ultron.) Watch all three below, and prepare to Marvel at Mark Ruffalo’s continued astonishment at the particulars of his job. Read More »

Captain America Civil War promo art

Production on Captain America: Civil War just wrapped over the weekend, and while some footage from the film was recently shown at D23 Expo, I wouldn’t count on the first official trailer for the Marvel Studios sequel arriving until later this year, maybe with Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

In the meantime, there have been a lot of rumors floating around, including word on which superheroes align themselves with Captain America (Chris Evans) and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) when they end up at odds. The aforementioned footage from D23 essentially confirmed those rumors, but in case you needed more substantial evidence, some Captain America Civil War promo art has surfaced showing each of the teams, but beware of spoilers below.

Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War is currently shooting in Germany with one week of production left, and while Marvel Studios stayed home from San Diego Comic Con International 2015, they did show up to Disney’s fan convention D23 Expo 2015 with Captain America (Chris Evans, who got a standing ovation), Falcon (Anthony Mackie), and perhaps most importantly, footage from the 2016 release.

I Saw the Light

The choice to cast Tom Hiddleston as all-American country legend Hank Williams in I Saw the Light raised some eyebrows at first, but Hiddleston’s clearly been working hard to prove himself up to the challenge. Now the first batch of I Saw the Light images offer a good long look at Hiddleston in character, so audiences can begin to judge for themselves.

Fellow MCU-er Elizabeth Olsen co-stars as Hank’s first wife Audrey. Marc Abraham (Flash of Genius) directed. Flip through the new I Saw the Light images after the jump. Read More »

Captain America: Civil War promo art

Production is underway on Captain America: Civil War right now down in Atlanta, Georgia, and with a whole bunch of The Avengers (new and old) on the cast roster, it’s safe to say we can expect a pretty massive flick. And while the movie doesn’t arrive until May 6th, 2016, one of the cast members is wasting no time driving a wedge between our superheroes.

Jeremy Renner, who plays the skilled archer and former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Clint Barton (aka Hawkeye), took to Twitter yesterday with a little welcome card that teases the coming battle between Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and Steve Rogers (Chris Evans).

Robert Downey Jr Twitter Photos

Tony Stark might joke that he’s not the boss of the Avengers, but Robert Downey Jr. is certainly the leader.

He took photos with almost all of his co-stars, joked about Captain America: Civil War, and basically just gave fans what they wanted – access to one of the most anticipated films of the year.

Elizabeth Olsen Avengers 2 interview

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 RuffaloRobert Downey Jr, director Joss WhedonChris Hemsworth and Chris EvansThis morning we are posting our interview with Whiplash and Scarlet Witch, Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson. Here is a short snippet from Olsen explains her super abilities:

Yeah. So, I am able to go into someone’s head and make them see their almost like –I can feel and see what they feel and see, so it’s not just manipulating them. But what I love about her is that in so many superhero films emotions are kind of negated a bit but for her everything that someone else could feel, like their weakest moment, she physically goes through that same experience with them, which is pretty cool. So if they have a biggest darkest fear, I could see that. … I can control energy. I can manipulate energy. So that’s what the red stuff is that we’re playing with.

Avengers quicksilver

In the past few weeks, we’ve seen lots of new footage from Avengers: Age of Ultron. However, only a few seconds of that has featured the latest character additions, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver. A new featurette changes that with many scenes from the movie featuring the new heroes, played by Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson. We see each of them at work, interacting with the Avengers and how they each change the Avengers as a team. It’s a pretty great little sneak at the Joss Whedon film, which will be out in just over a month.
