‘Avengers 2’ — Chris Hemsworth Says ‘Age of Ultron’ Is an ‘Onslaught’ That Will Not Stop

thor-fi

We're on the set of Avengers: Age of Ultron, inside the new Avengers Tower; formerly Stark Tower and now converted to a de facto headquarters for the Earth’s mightiest heroes. It’s all very sleek and shiny and pretty much exactly what you'd expect from a place Tony Stark calls home. Except now, it's a complete disaster. There's broken glass scattered across the floor. Furniture is destroyed. There are giant gashes in the wall. There's a production assistant dramatically swinging a giant cape around (the actors film their fight scenes without the cape, and the cape is added later in post-production).

Marvel

X-Men: Apocalypse is continuing the tradition of recasting classic X-Men as younger characters (Sophie Turner as Jean Grey and Tye Sheridan as Cyclops), so it should be no surprise that another fan favorite is getting recast. Director Bryan Singer announced on Instagram that Kodi Smit-McPhee (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) has signed on to star as Nightcrawler, a sleazy Hollywood paparazzo who will stop at nothing to get his shot. (Wait...)

The Amazing ‘Star Wars’ Concept Art of Designer Ralph McQuarrie

Star Wars concept art by Ralph McQuarrie

'Star Wars' illustrator and designer Ralph McQuarrie is responsible for some of the most iconic imagery in the pop culture and the history of movies. McQuarrie designed the look of many of the Star Wars characters including Darth Vader, C-3PO, R2-D2 and the Stormtroopers, as well as locations like the Death Star and Tattooine. In fact, it was McQuarrie's artwork that eventually sold 20th Century Fox on the idea of letting George Lucas actually make a 'Star Wars' movie.

We spoke to Hugh Jackman earlier today for his upcoming movie ‘Chappie’ (we’ll have much more on that movie soon), and as we were making small talk, we asked Mr. Jackman whether he had heard the news yet about Marvel and Sony Pictures coming to terms on an agreement that would allow Spider-Man to crossover into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Captain America and Iron Man won’t be the only ones brawling in ‘Captain America 3’. While the juiciest part of ‘Civil War’ will surely be seeing the two (former?) Avengers squaring off against each other, there are still going to be some common villains they’ll have to deal with. For one, the Winter Soldier is still on the loose. For another, so is Brock Rumlow, aka Crossbones. And, as if it couldn’t get more difficult, Cap will also have to deal with yet another villain. Daniel Bruhl (‘Rush’) signed on to star in the film back in November and now comes some confirmation that he’ll be playing classic comic villain Baron Zemo.

Comic-Con International has been taking place in San Diego since it was launched as the Golden State Comic Book Convention back in 1970. San Diego is part of Comic-Con, and Comic-Con is part of San Diego. At least it was? As the current deal between Comic-Con and San Diego is set to expire next year, the convention could be looking elsewhere for a new home—one with more space—and both Los Angeles and Anaheim are making a push to steal away the biggest pop culture gathering in the world.
