For ten movies we’ve been waiting to see an entire movie of the Avengers being “The Avengers.” Sure, we’ve seen some crossovers. We’ve seen what the team could do when aliens invaded. We’ve even seen an alien pseudo-Avengers assemble in Guardians of the Galaxy. But up until Avengers: Age of Ultron, we haven’t seen what would happen if six amazing superheroes spent an entire movie together, working together.
For that reason alone, Joss Whedon‘s Avengers Age of Ultron is satisfying. Beyond that, it a falls a little bit short of its amazing predecessor. When compared to the first film, Age of Ultron is more even, constantly exciting and surprising. There are huge laughs, there’s drama, some real character development, and some absolutely crazy action. That consistency almost makes up for the fact the film lacks the “Wow” moments of the first movie and that brand new feeling we got the first time.
Nevertheless, Avengers: Age of Ultron is a blast. Read the rest of our Avengers Age of Ultron review below. Read More »

Monday night in Hollywood, The Avengers made the most of one half block. The cast went from Jimmy Kimmel Live where they played Family Feud, analyzed fan art and were interviewed, then walked across Hollywood Blvd. to the world premiere of Avengers: Age of Ultron at the Dolby Theater. But you don’t have to brave the crowds and traffic to see the madness. Below, we’ve got the Avengers Family Feud video along with some other Kimmel videos and a selection of the best red carpet photos from the premiere. Check them out below. Read More »
Tony Stark might joke that he’s not the boss of the Avengers, but Robert Downey Jr. is certainly the leader. The actor was in classic form at the Avengers: Age of Ultron junket over the weekend and used his Twitter to document the whole thing. 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. Check out some of the awesome Robert Downey Jr Twitter photos below. Read More »

For all the talk about how Furious 7 officially marked the start of the movie season this year, April’s actually a pretty mellow month for wide releases. May is when the action really gets going, starting with Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Marvel has not been stingy about releasing footage for this highly anticipated superhero team-up. And while they’re bound to run out eventually, they’ve managed to squeeze out a little bit more for a final promo. Check out one more Avengers Age of Ultron trailer after the jump.

Avengers: Age of Ultron arrives in the UK and other countries in just a couple weeks, and hits the US on May 1. The first screenings take place very soon, after which we’ll probably start to hear far too much about the film’s secrets. But for now, there are brief blasts of new footage thanks to things like the new behind the scenes featurette, and these two new Age of Ultron TV spots. The best line in either of these spots comes from Jeremy Renner‘s Hawkeye, as he raises an issue that we’ve probably all thought about as the team prepares to battle the robot Ultron, and his army of other robots.

Tom Cruise and Christopher McQuarrie dropped a little present for us on Sunday morning. They revealed the first Mission Impossible 5 trailer, along with a poster and title. That title: Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation. And, actually, it’s not even the full trailer. It’s a minute-long tease for the full trailer which will hit on Monday, March 23. Still, it’s the best trailer tease you’ve ever seen. None of this 20 seconds and no footage crap.

Expert archer Hawkeye was missing in action during Phase Two of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but we’re about to get a double dose. Of course, we know he’s got a major role in Avengers: Age of Ultron out in May. And while he won’t appear in the subsequent Marvel film, Ant-Man, there’s now evidence he’ll appear in Captain America: Civil War, which will be out in May 2016.
Jeremy Renner‘s character joins an already jam-packed superhero cast that includes Captain America (Chris Evans), Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Falcon (Anthony Mackie), Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) and probably even Spider-Man.

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. Previously we 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 post contains our interview with Hawkeye, Jeremy Renner. Here is a short snippet from Renner explaining how the action has evolved in this Avengers sequel:
There’s new tech and new costumes, there’s always new abilities, and new sort of things. For instance, if Hawkeye is a distance guy, what happens when it’s close quarters? We did a little of that in the first Avengers with having to use arrows in hands and having to do different things like that, be nimble and flying between people’s legs. You have to be clever with things, clever fighting to me is what I like to explore a little bit more with that as well. And then using each other, like if it was Cap, Widow, and I in a scene how we can use each other’s abilities as teamwork? He can toss me somewhere higher. That’s where these new characters are great, with Scarlet Witch you’ll find that her abilities are just being tapped into in this movie and what they can become, she’s still learning what they are, which is really cool. That to me as a nerdy, geeky dude about this world, that’s what I’m excited to kind of see what happens in the future because that can be quite fun.
