Though Joss Whedon recently said not to expect many Avengers 2 easter eggs, there are still some things in Age of Ultron that eagle-eyed Marvel fans will notice if they're paying attention. We've compiled a list of all the easter eggs we noticed after our second screening of the film. Is there anything you noticed that we missed? Drop it in the comments below and we'll add it!

We finally stand at the cusp of the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron, and after a month of asking you to vote in our favorite, best, greatest Avengers poll, it all comes down to this. These are the final two in the contest to determine which of over 100 Avengers members deserves bragging rights as the people's true champion. Is it Stingray? Or is it Moondragon?
Actually, despite our unsubtle lobbying for those two, you, the people, went in another direction. Captain America always seemed likely to make the final, and he's still surely the favorite. Most of us probably expected him to go toe-to-toe with Iron Man in a democratic remake of Civil War. But the semi-final between Thor and Iron Man went down to the wire, with one hero maintaining a hair's breadth lead over the other in the final hours, and now we can officially confirm that Iron Man... is out of the competition.
Welcome to Post Credits, the movie review show from our friends at ScreenCrush! On this Hulk-sized episode, ScreenCrush Editor-in-Chief Mike Sampson and Managing Editor Matt Singer assemble to discuss the latest from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Hasbro's been releasing a steady stream of role-playing gear based on a variety of Marvel properties, but as of late, the shelves at retailers have been filled with Avengers: Age of Ultron gear. A short while ago, Hasbro sent us a box of the kid-friendly gear, and we knew the only way to really test out Iron Man's repulsors, Captain America's shield, Hulk's hands and Thor's hammer was to put it in the hands of some of the top research scientists ComicsAlliance could afford.
In honor of The Avengers: Age of Ultron hitting theaters, we have decided to pull a Nick Fury and unite our favorite Marvel superhero games of all time.
Marvel’s TV universe has plenty of balls to juggle for the moment, between Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., its spinoff and side-project, as well as the Netflix Defenders, and it seems we may have another name in the mix. Ryan Phillippe has reportedly entered talks for a role in one of the new Netflix series, but might he be our Iron Fist?
All this month, to mark the imminent release of Avengers: Age of Ultron, we've been asking you to vote for your favorite, best, greatest Avengers members from the 100+ heroes who have signed up over the years. Now we've reached the semi-finals, and the final four may not be a big surprise --- and you may even think you have a clear idea who the final two are going to be --- but you cast the votes, so it's up to you to decide for sure!
The superheroes at the center of Avengers: Age of Ultron resonate so strongly with so many people because they’re so deeply entrenched in popular culture. Captain America, Iron Man and the Hulk were around for years before Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr. and Mark Ruffalo were even born. These aren’t just characters – they’re icons. And while serious comic book nerds know how much Earth’s mightiest heroes have changed with the times, taking a look back at what the likes of Black Widow and Hawkeye and the Vision used to look like is both entertaining and (dare we say it?) educational.
If Marvel won’t listen to the rest of us, then maybe they’ll listen to a valuable person on their payroll. Recently, we learned that Marvel and Disney’s officially-licensed Avengers: Age of Ultron merchandise featured very, very little in the way of Black Widow (options include a shopping bag), and absolutely no Scarlet Witch merchandise at all. Apparently fans weren’t the only ones bothered by this, as Avengers star Mark Ruffalo also has something to say about it. Hey Marvel, you don’t want to make him angry. You won’t like him when he’s angry.
