Here are some set photos, including one of James Spader talking to Robert Downey Jr., Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson working the siblings look, director Joss Whedon and Chris Evans, and Scarlett Johansson as the Black Widow.


Marvel Studios presents “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time. When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.



The writers from the Captain America movies are now following Joe and Anthony Russo to Avengers: Infinity War and will be writing both parts to the duology.

Devin Faraci of BadassDigest reports that both Infinity Wars will be scripted by Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus, the screenwriting team behind all three Captain America movies.

Marvel isn’t confirming the hire, but the Markus/McFeely team has become a central creative force in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In addition to their Cap work, the writers received a screenplay credit on Thor: The Dark World. (As with the first Thor, there were five credited writers on the sequel; a sure sign that everything went entirely according to plan and there were no creative differences at any stage of the process.)



We present another set of Deadpool set photos of Ryan Reynolds in costume looking very much in character with his swords and guns.

We have a duo that’s been confirmed to write the screenplay for The Flash.  Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the writing team behind The LEGO Movie and 21 Jump Street have signed on for the DC movie.  They also directed both 21 Jump Street and 22 Jump Street.  No word yet on if they will be directing the movie as well.



Bryan Singer finally confirmed that Ben Hardy will definitely play Angel in X-Men: Apocalypse.

“Ben Hardy is Angel – I shall confirm it for you! But he’s not a very nice Angel! And that’s all I’ll say…”

But of course, a couple of images have very much hinted at the notion that Angel will be transformed, and here we see some Archangel concept art, complete with metal wings.
