As the August 1, 2014 release of Guardians of the Galaxy is still just under a year away, those involved in the project can expect to be greedily pumped for information on the oddball superhero film every day between now and the movie’s release date.  Case in point:  Christ Pratt (a.k.a. Guardians of the Galaxy’s Peter Quill, a.k.a. Star-Lord) who,...

Joss Whedon Goes Into Detail About Loki's Future And Killing Off Avengers

Published by

JOSS WHEDON and SCARLETT JOHANSSON
Joss Whedon is one of the unofficial geek gods when it pertains to comics, television and movies. As of late he's been greatly praised for his directorial work on The Avengers, but what does this man have up his sleeve for The Avengers: Age of Ultron? We're not entirely sure, but he gives the world a little bit of a hint in a recent interview.

Silent House – Elizabeth Olsen
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? ...

There were a few fans, including myself, who were under the impression that Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) wasn't actually killed during The Avengers. Sure it was a stretch of the imagination on our parts, but we still had hope. When Marvel announced Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. with the warm hearted Coulson leading the charge, we were happy to...

'Thor: The Dark World' Doing More Reshoots With An Extra Shot Of Loki

In both Thor and The Avengers, the well-spoken but sinister Loki (Tom Hiddleston) shined among the rest as the new fan-favorite villain. But might we be seeing a little too much of him in Thor: The Dark World thanks to reshoots? While that'll make most fans happy, the footage that was shown at Comic-Con/D23 Expo makes me wonder about who the...

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? The Bats Vs. Supes film).   The announcement led to a lot of...

Well, now that Joss Whedon has kicked things up a notch by announcing The Avengers: Age of Ultron as the name of the upcoming Avengers sequel, and that the robot Ultron will be the villain, and that Ant-Man won’t be in the film, we’re now beginning the two-year cycle in which we brutally nit-pick every possible and potential factoid and spoiler concerning the film, because, what...

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...

'The Avengers 2': Vin Diesel Hints At 'Vision' Role With New Picture

Nearly one year ago, in August of 2012, we reported to you that Vin Diesel was rumored to join The Avengers 2 cast as a character named Vision, who, in the comics, is a "'solar powered android' known as a synthezoid.  Said synthezoid Vision was created by the robot baddie Ultron to kill Henry Pym (otherwise known as Ant-Man, who is getting...

If there’s one thing that holds Captain America back from being a cinematic badass, it’s this: his suit is absolutely ridiculous.  Don’t get us wrong, we’re all for patriotism and apple pie and all that.  But, frankly, the skin-tight red, white, and blue spandex as worn in The Avengers (his heavier, World War II outfit was far less embarrassing) doesn’t exactly scream...

Tom Hiddleston as Loki in Thor
Despite the fact that we’re still two years away from The Avengers 2’s official release, seeing as how The Avengers was one of the most successful films of all time, well… there’s a lot of endless speculation going on about the plot, about the cast, about the characters, etc.  Hence, this article, in which we discuss writer-director Joss Whedon’s recalcitrance at...

Last month, we reported that actor John C. Reilly was in the running for a role in Marvel’s upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy (you know, the film with a superhero tree and gun-toting raccoon), a film about a group of intergalactic law enforcers.  And, while Reilly would be awfully high profile for such a gig (Marvel has a tendency to go for cheaper, less on the radar performers),...

Just yesterday, we reported to you that Joss Whedon was extremely excited about director James Gunn’s vision for Marvel’s upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy, a wacky film about an intergalactic superhuman police force that includes a sentient tree and a talking, gun-toting raccoon.  And since it is rumored that Thanos (the big bad guy in The Avengers’ post-credits teaser) will...

Joss Whedon: 'Guardians Of The Galaxy' Is "About The Raccoon And The Tree"

guardians of the galaxy
One of the hardest things for filmgoers to wrap their heads around, concerning Marvel’s upcoming superhero space police film Guardians of the Galaxy, is that two of the main characters are a talking raccoon and a walking, talking tree.  Yes, a tree and a raccoon are two of the film’s big heroes.   It’s weird.

Joss Whedon has always admired fictional women who are not only smart and beautiful but know how to kick butt. A majority of his female characters fit just that description, from his days working on Buffy the Vampire Slayer to the Black Widow on The Avengers.
