We’re approaching that point in the ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ marketing campaign where it can start to feel like we’ve already seen every big stunt and setpiece in the film before the movie’s even opened. But the new ‘Avengers’ trailer reveals yet another amazingly cool beat that’s never been seen before: Chris Evans’ Captain America loses his shield in battle with James Spader’s Ultron, so Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow snatches it while trailing the fight on a motorcycle, then slides under a semi-truck Fast & Furious-style and tosses it up to Cap so he can continue the battle. Awesome awesome awesome. (Marvel’s going to try to use that as a pull-quote on the poster, aren’t they?)

Age of Ultron offers the most formidable and terrifying Marvel villain yet, but don’t let the seriousness of that threat fool you — the latest featurette for Avengers: Age of Ultron takes you behind the scenes of the upcoming super-sequel, and unsurprisingly, working on this movie was a whole lot of fun (but still exhausting).
Like any major motion picture these days, Avengers 2 is set to open on IMAX screens, giving fans a chance to watch Earth’s mightiest heroes battle evil on a screen larger than their house. And like any major motion picture opening in IMAX, attendees at the opening night screenings will be given a special poster to commemorate the occasion. And since Marvel is really good at getting fans hyped up, they’ve gone ahead and created four separate posters.
Bandai originally teased the Avengers: Age of Ultron SH Figuarts series with a look at Iron Man MK XLIII, but the rest of the line-up has finally been revealed this week. In addition to the MK XLIII Iron Man, we'll be seeing Thor, Captain America, Hulk, and the all-new Iron Man MK XLV. Oh, and probably an armor you've never heard of called Hankbuster? No, wait. Hulkbuster. Yeah. That's the one.

Everyone loves comic book trivia, but with 75 years of superhero comics behind us right now, there’s always some new obscure fact to learn.

With Ultron set to appear as the big bad in this year's Avengers sequel, this week we're taking a closer look at the unkillable mechanoid consciousness who just wants to destroy all flesh. Find out what obscure television series inspired the creation of Ultron, how his upgrades affected another more popular comics character, and why on earth a genocidal robot overlord would be caught dead wearing a trench coat and fedora, as well as several other equally interesting facts.
To commemorate the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron in Asia, Hot Toys will be traveling to eight different cities with its "Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron Exhibition." The tour will show off some life-size recreations of the stars and heroes of the film, all crafted by Hot Toys' artists, as well as offering an exclusive Iron Man figure at each stop.
The Avengers: Age of Ultron reveals just keep coming from Hot Toys. Today, the company revealed the all-new Hawkeye sixth-scale figure, which comes with a fresh head sculpt. Too bad Jeremy Renner doesn't look too happy about it.
One of the harsh realities of life is that all things must end, even the current spate of Marvel Studios films. One day, the actors will move on (Robert Downey Jr. already has one foot out the door) and the movie Avengers roster of the early-to-mid 2010s will morph into something else.
But what if you didn't want them to? What if your fandom reached such great heights that you wished that the movie Avengers of today could be with you forever, and you could immortalize them in the walls, bookcases, kitchen cabinets and bed frames of your home Someone in Singapore apparently did just that, with the help of Absolook Interior Designs. For that one fan, it will be 2012 to 2015 for a lifetime (or until she or he trades out the decor for The Inhumans or Justice League 2 in 2019).
Though she was hinted at during Toy Soul late last year, Hot Toys officially revealed the Avengers: Age of Ultron Black Widow figure today. With a new 'do, uniform, weapons and more, Black Widow has never looked better. Well, except in her Captain America: The Winter Solider form, which had the exact same head sculpt.
