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.

The first official Avengers: Age of Ultron poster was a big mess of characters and details, but the character posters are a lot more clean. It helps that the posters only have to focus on one character each — the latest features the main villain of the film, Ultron, played by James Spader. Last week, we saw Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch and Aaron Taylor Johnson as Quicksilver.
We’ll continue to post the Age of Ultron character posters as they arrive. By our count, we’re probably not just waiting on Paul Bettany as Vision. For now, see all of the released Avengers: Age of Ultron character posters below.

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 »
