Bet You Never Spotted This Buffyverse Easter Egg In Avengers: Age Of Ultron

Bet You Never Spotted This Buffyverse Easter Egg In Avengers: Age Of Ultron
Joss Whedon reveals in his dependably witty commentary on the Blu-ray release of  Avengers: Age Of Ultron (out to buy in the UK from 14 September)  that he managed to sneak a Buffyverse Easter egg into the Marvel film so clever, so ingenious and so subtle that if you ever meet any one who reckons that they spotted it at the cinema, then point at them in a crowd and shout, “Liar, liar, pants on fire!” very loudly. Remember Angel, the spin-off...

Two Featurettes From Avengers: Age Of Ultron Blu-ray
Marvel has revealed two behind-the-scenes featurettes from the Blu-ray of Avengers: The Age of Ultron, both of them featuring James Spader in a motion capture suit and being reliably bonkers as the eponymous robot villain. He was one of the highlights of the film so it’s good to him in action.

It’s been fantastic to meet so many people with accents, very exotic, even, from Wales! Those who are Welsh, the voice, it’s lovely. Very nice.” Not...

Things Heat Up in the New Avengers: Age of Ultron Trailer

Things Heat Up in the New Avengers: Age of Ultron Trailer
Released last night, the newest trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron shows things looking pretty hairy for the superhero six, with fear and frustration leading to some nasty and rather brutal in-fighting. Things heat up particularly between Iron Man and The Hulk, while elsewhere, Elizabeth Olson makes a suitably dramatic entrance as Scarlet Witch, one of two new additions to the team – the other being her character’s brother, Quicksilver,...

Paul Bettany to play the Vision in Avengers: Age of Ultron
With the casting of Elizabeth Olsen as the Scarlet Witch it would have appeared that everything was in place for the next Avengers movie, but it seems like that wasn’t quite true. It’s not unusual for Marvel to want to keep things hidden for as long as possible so that we have some surprises. Surprises like having Paul Bettany joining the crew to play the Vision. In the comics Vision is created by Ultron as a foil for Hank Pym, his own...
