Deciding to save the movie blogosphere from cannibalizing itself on what has proven to be a rather slow and boring day, Joss Whedon has taken time out of his busy schedule to record a video for the citizens of Seoul, South Korea, preemptively apologizing for the chaos and delays that the filming of The Avengers: Age of Ultron is going to cause in the very near future.  Oh, and it...

Well, this is interesting—Paul Bettany, who has voiced the A.I. computer system J.A.R.V.I.S. that was created by Tony Stark/ Iron Man to serve as a kind of digital butler in Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Iron Man 3, and The Avengers, has now been cast in The Avengers: Age of Ultron… as the superhero robot Vision.

In a shock to no one, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been picked up for a full season. That was never in question. What will be interesting is to see if the show can figure itself out and hold on to viewers. Neither are guaranteed (though a second season seems likely).

MARVEL'S THE AVENGERS
Through no fault of their own, Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow and Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye weren’t exactly the most galvanizing characters in The Avengers (though Johansson was fairly charming and actually had a good deal to do in the climax, whereas Renner was saddled with a basic zombie storyline), due mostly to the fact that they were the...

After a long wait viewers finally got to see the first episode of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. It's the first official spinoff show from the studios dominating film franchises. It's filled with the same humor and action you'd expect from a Joss Whedon project but it has a couple of kinks. This is the "Pilot" episode we're talking about so we shouldn't...

Joss Whedon has gone from a cult favorite director to the king of Marvel movies within the past couple of years. When he directed The Avengers, he turned into Marvel's golden boy and apparently they're taking full advantage of that. Thor: The Dark World may look like it'll be an action-packed fall film, but the movie isn't without it's share of bumps along...

As you may recall, the end of August brought the first official casting news concerning The Avengers: Age of Ultron—specifically, that actor James Spader would be playing the mega-villain robot Ultron (at this point it’s unclear if Spader will be simply providing a voice for Ultron, or will be involved in some kind of motion-capture performance as well).  And now Joss Whedon,...

Well… this was unexpected.  We’ve known since Comic-Con that the Big Bad in The Avengers: Age of Ultron would be, well Ultron, the villainous A.I. with the nigh-indestructible robotic body.  Further, it was easy to assume that Ultron would likely be conveyed via some kind of motion-capture CGI, and voiced by someone known for a deep, booming baritone.  Which is why the casting...

Oh, the blockbuster movie casting rumor: simultaneously one of the least reliable and yet most-read news bits in the entertainment world, reportage from a time in a film’s development in which nearly anything is possible, so a bunch of outlets just throw names out into the ether to see what sticks.  Today’s film?  The Avengers: Age of Ultron.  The character?  Scarlet Witch? ...

One of the big questions regarding the upcoming The Avengers: Age of Ultron film is what, exactly, will be the origin of the robotic mega-villain Ultron—after all, in the comic, Utron is created by Hank Pym (a.k.a., Ant-Man); however, Joss Whedon has stated that Ant-Man will not appear in the new Avengers film, and will not be responsible for Ultron’s creation in the new film. ...

The second biggest piece of news to break from the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con was, without doubt, the announcement that the sequel to The Avengers would be called The Avengers: Age of Ultron—which also confirmed that the villain for the film would indeed be the robo-baddie Ultron (the first biggest piece of news?

While it may not have been the single biggest bit of information released at the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con (that title is reserved for the upcoming Batman and Superman film), the news that The Avengers sequel will be titled The Avengers: Age of Ultron and will feature Ultron as its Big Bad was certainly the biggest bomb dropped at the Marvel panel at the Con.  And now, as the...
