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.

Ant-Man is coming to the MCU this summer. So is Ultron. But unlike in the comics, where Ant-Man (specifically Hank Pym) created Ultron, the two don’t seem to have much to do with other in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Instead, Tony Stark will be the one responsible for bringing the killer robot to life.
Naturally, fans have been complaining to Joss Whedon about the major change in Ultron’s origin story, and now the Avengers: Age of Ultron director has a response for them: Blame Edgar Wright. Well, Wright and the fact that Whedon just couldn’t find a good way to fit in Hank Pym. Find out why there’s no Hank Pym in Avengers after the jump. Read More »
In the comic books, Ultron is all but unbeatable. He’s artificially intelligent and, in addition to being super strong, fast and all that good stuff, he can transfer his consciousness and recreate himself. (He’s also changed powers over the years too.) So just when you think he’s dead, bang, he’s back in another form. That’s a big problem for a superhero movie where the good guys kind of have to win, according to Joss Whedon.
In an interview from the set of Avengers: Age of Ultron, the writer/director of the superhero sequel talked about the fact Ultron is so powerful in the comics, he was forced to dial back his abilities for the movie world. He also discussed how introducing Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch into the film helped the title character. Read the Joss Whedon Avengers Age of Ultron quotes below. Read More »

Joss Whedon has spent most of the past several years building the Marvel Cinematic Universe, first with The Avengers, then with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and now Avengers: Age of Ultron. And he’s certainly done great work within that universe. But now he’s sounding ready to move on.
In a new interview, Whedon reveals a desire to create his own universe — maybe something like “turn-of-the-century female Batman,” or “Sam Fuller meets Edward Gorey.” Consider us sold. Read the Joss Whedon universe comments, plus his explanation of why he (probably) won’t direct Captain Marvel, after the jump. Read More »
Three months from now, Avengers: Age of Ultron will be in our rear view window. It comes out May 1 in the United States, and as is the case with any big film, a few days later we’ll all have overanalyzed the crap out of it.
At the moment, many questions remain about the film. Some of those are about to be answered as another batch of marketing is hitting. The first TV spot was just released and now Marvel has released sixteen new photos from the film. Some were in Empire last week, and some showed up in the trailers, but there are some great new looks at the Hulk, Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver and more here.
Check out the new Avengers: Age of Ultron pictures here, as well as the Hulkbuster and Vision and some cool posters courtesy of Fathead. Read More »

Joss Whedon is currently working very hard on giving audiences a worthy follow-up to one of the biggest films of all time, The Avengers. Avengers: Age of Ultron is a few short months away and the new issue of Empire Magazine had a bunch of new images about that film. They also asked Whedon about his future in the Marvel Universe, specifically whether or not he’ll be back for Avengers: Infinity War Parts 1 and 2. We’d heard that the Russo Brothers would be helming those films after Captain America: Civil War so Whedon’s quote probably won’t surprise you, but you can read it and see the new images below.

DC almost beat Marvel to the punch. Years ago, DC and Warner Bros. had recruited a then cult writer named Joss Whedon to write a script for a Wonder Woman movie. Unfortunately, the film didn’t get made.
Years later, Joss Whedon went on to direct the biggest superhero movie of all time, The Avengers, and Warner Bros. is again developing a Wonder Woman movie, starring Gal Gadot and directed by Michelle MacLaren. But fans still like to imagine what Whedon’s Wonder Woman may have been and now, we have a small glimpse.
A promotional poster for the would-be movie was available at San Diego Comic-Con 2005 has now made it on eBay. It’s available along with artist Adam Hughes‘ original drawing, making the set a very exciting and rare thing. Below, check out both pieces of Joss Whedon Wonder Woman art work. Read More »
