Ever since Marvel debuted its roughly minute-long teaser for Avengers: Age of Ultron at SDCC 2013, fans have been riding the usual waves of trying to scope out grainy smart phone-recorded bootlegs that hang out on YouTube for all of 8 minutes before being deleted. But no more! JoBlo has uploaded a proper HD version of the teaser, which sees a CG render of Tony Stark's Iron Man helmet morph into Ultron's satisfyingly comics-accurate Jack-o'-lantern noggin.
Do you want to visit the set of the Avengers: Age of Ultron, as the personal guest of writer and director Joss Whedon?
Yyyyyeah, you probably do. Go get your wallet; it's for a good cause. Whedon and Marvel are auctioning off the opportunity for one lucky so-and-so (plus guest) to get a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the making of Age of Ultron in London next spring. Proceeds from the auction will benefit LA's Downtown Women's Center, a housing and support organization that has been helping out homeless and severely low-income women in downtown Los Angeles since 1978.
While we don't yet know what Ultron's origin will be in the upcoming Avengers: Age Of Ultron, one question about the villain was answered this morning, as Marvel announced that James Spader has been cast to play the classic Avengers antagonist.
Somewhere along the line, Agent Coulson became the breakout star of the Marvel film universe. Appearing in nearly every Marvel Studios film from the first Iron Man up to Avengers, Coulson, played by Clark Gregg, grew in popularity in a way that very few likely imagined. All this has culminated in Coulson being one of the stars of the upcoming Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. television series from ABC. So while the character will be getting even more screen time on television this fall, one place you likely won't see him, according to director Joss Whedon, is in the newly titled Avengers: Age of Ultronfilm.
Saturday night at Marvel's "Marvel Studios" panel, Avengers director Joss Whedon came on stage to announce to fans in attendance that the sequel to last summer's blockbuster film would be titled Avengers: Age of Ultron. The news was met with excitement from people in attendance, as well as speculation as to whether or not the film would be an adaptation of the recent Age of Ultron miniseries from writer Brian Michael Bendis and artists Bryan Hitch and Carlos Pacheco. Whedon quickly dispelled any such notions before Comic-Con was even over, definitively stating that "We're doing our own version of the origin story for Ultron."
Marvel Entertainment closed out day three of Comic-Con with their highly anticipated 'Marvel Studios:Thor: The Dark WorldandCaptain America:The Winter Soldier.' Hosted by Marvel Studios president and producer Kevin Feige, the panel started out with Tom Hiddleston coming out and going into his Loki character to entertain the crowd, was followed by the cast of the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy film joining Feige on stage as they debuted footage from the film, and closed out with Joss Whedon coming out to make Marvel's biggest announcement of this year's SDCC: the sequel to last year's phenomenally successful Avengers film will be titled Avengers: Age of Ultron, meaning the villain will be the powerful android with close ties to the Avengers who's tormented the team for decades.
