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.

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.

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.

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.

In the late ’60s, when Steve McQueen (the actor, not the current director) was one of the biggest stars in the world, McQueen outlined a treatment for an action/adventure movie. “Outlined” may be too simple a word; in fact, there’s a 1700-page document from McQueen setting up the film. Now that outline is being turned into a script by Terry Rossio (Pirates of the Caribbean) called Yucatan, which is now a potential starring vehicle for Robert Downey, Jr. Read More »
