I think they have learned to keep a lot of what happens out of the trailer.

Aaron Taylor-Johnson Officially On For Avengers 2

Despite the fact that everyone's been assuming that Aaron Taylor-Johnson was confirmed as Quicksilver for The Avengers: Age Of Ultron, in reality, it has taken months for him – or his representatives, at least – to make a deal with Marvel. The ink is now dry, however, and he is confirmed for Joss Whedon’s superhero sequel.

The actor’s name first surfaced in June, when he was reported as Marvel’s first choice for the role back in the days when we didn’t even know what the film would be called beyond “Avengers 2”… According to The Wrap, the big sticking point for officially coming aboard was his promotional commitments to Godzilla. But diaries have now been consulted, schedules juggled and compromises made so that he can both hit the road on a press tour and suit up as Pietro Maximoff, brother to Wanda, AKA Scarlet Witch (you can get an introduction to them both right here).

While her own casting hasn’t been officially confirmed, word comes (via Samuel L. Jackson!) that Elizabeth Olsen is set as Scarlet Witch.

With Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth and Mark Ruffalo among those returning for the new film, shooting is set to get under way early next year in the UK, where everyone will be battling rogue robot Ultron, played by James Spader.

Taylor-Johnson, as mentioned, has Godzilla next set for release and the monster movie stomps across our screens on May 16.

Elizabeth Olsen Joins Cast of Avengers Sequel, Age of Ultron

Elizabeth Olsen has some Marvelous news to share with you.

The 24-year-old actress has finally confirmed the rumor  that she has been cast in Joss Whedon 's highly anticipated Avengers sequel, Age of Ultron, after Samuel L. Jackson let the cat out of the bag last month while speaking to the Wall Street Journal .

In an sit-down with MTV while making the press rounds for Oldboy, Olsen revealed that she'll play Wanda Maximoff, better known among the fanboy set as The Scarlet Witch. 

While admitting she didn't have much in the way of details, the younger sis of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen did say the role will reunite her with her costar from the upcoming Godzilla remake, Aaron Taylor-Johnson ( Kick-Ass), whom The Wrap reported has been tapped to play Scarlet's twin brother, Quicksilver.

"We get to play husband and wife, and we get to play twin brother and sister," Olsen said. "It's also fun because even though in Godzilla we play husband and wife, we don't have a lot of scenes together. I just love him. I love his family. I love his kids. I'm so excited we get to work with each other more and to actually work with each other. I think it's going to be fun."

Per Marvel lore, Scarlet and Quicksilver are the mutant children of Magneto, the notorious villain of the X-Men comic books. Her powers include the ability to cast hexes that enable her to do such wonders as deflect objects, create force fields and blow stuck up while her sibling's powers include moving and thinking at superhuman speeds.

Elizabeth attended Monday night's New York City premiere of Oldboy with Jackson (her costar in the Spike Lee-directed drama who also plays Nick Fury in the Marvel superhero franchise), and she had high praise for Whedon, whom she called whip smart.

"Some people are too smart for their own good, but he's amazing," she said.

Avengers: Age of Ultron, which stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner and James Spader, is scheduled to hit theaters on May 1, 2015.

Meet Your New Wonder Woman, Gal Gadot

After months of speculation and weird fan Photoshop mock-ups, the DC Cinematic Universe finally has its Wonder Woman: Gal Gadot. The Israeli actress, who has made a name for herself in the Fast & the Furious series, will star as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince alongside Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck in 2015′s Zack Snyder-directed Batman vs Superman. It’s unknown how large the role will be, but it’s significant in that this is the iconic character’s first feature film incarnation.

Originally, it was reported that Gadot was testing for a role believed to be Wonder Woman alongside G.I. Joe: Retaliation‘s Elodie Yung and Olga Kurylenko. Now, thanks to Batman vs. Superman director Zack Snyder, we know who won that Paradise Island throwdown.

In a statement presumably made from the window of his new invisible jet, Snyder said, “Wonder Woman is arguably one of the most powerful female characters of all time and a fan favorite in the DC Universe. Not only is Gal an amazing actress, but she also has that magical quality that makes her perfect for the role. We look forward to audiences discovering Gal in the first feature film incarnation of this beloved character.”

But, that’s not all, folks! Variety reports that Warners is looking to cast the villain in the film with Zero Dark Thirty and 300: Rise of an Empire star Callan Mulvey being eyed as the top candidate. Who could that villain be? My money is on Starro because why not.

Batman vs. Superman is set for release on July 17, 2015.

http://www.guy-announces-x-men-apocalypse-in-2016/

As official as any tweet can be, Bryan Singer, the director of next year’s hotly-anticipated X-Men: Days of Future Past has announced that 2016 will see the release of the follow-up, X-Men: Apocalypse. This information, which of course we’re jumping because it’s awesome, was delivered in the following, very brief tweet by the director:


#Xmen #Apocalypse 2016!

— Bryan Singer (@BryanSinger) December 5, 2013

 

Other than that, we have nothing. Even the guy who plays Iceman had no idea.


“@BryanSinger: #Xmen #Apocalypse 2016!” Whoa!!!! For real?!?!?

— Shawn R Ashmore (@ShawnRAshmore) December 5, 2013

 
SlashFilm is reporting that the tentative release date is May 27th, 2016. We’ll have more information when we have it, but knowing that another X-Men is on the way months before the movie is even released is a sign of both the studio’s excitement about the franchise and the director, and their desire to keep the train a-rolling given Sony’s recent announcement of ALL THE Spider-Man MOVIES!

Paul Rudd Confirmed To Play Ant-Man

 It's official: Marvel has now confirmed that Paul Rudd will play Hank Pym in Edgar Wright's Ant-Man. In a press release, the studio said Rudd had always been their first choice to fill the diminutive red suit.

"When Edgar came to us with the idea of Paul Rudd we felt a huge sense of relief," said producer and Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige. "We knew early on that we had found the right guy. He not only agreed to to do it but became as enthusiastic as any actor we've ever met with about doing the work. We couldn't be more excited for our audiences to see what he's going to do to bring Ant-Man to life."


A month or so ago we asked you, the revered Empire reader, who should play Ant-Man in the Marvel movie currently being plotted by Edgar Wright. You came back with a resounding ‘Paul Rudd’, possibly while blowing trumpets and banging pots together for emphasis, and it seems Team Marvel was listening. The Wrap cites unnamed sources reporting that Rudd is close to signing on the dotted line and has even started shedding about a hundred pounds for the role. That Unnamed Sources guy, eh? Boy, he knows some stuff.

Rudd has been circumspect on Hank Pym / Scott Lang (we're not entirely sure which one Edgar's going with) to date, managing to negotiate the Anchorman 2 junket without spilling a single bean on the topic, presumably by using his Sex Panther musk as a distraction. His rumoured rival for the part, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, has, of course, got his hands full with a comicbook project of his own in Neil Gaiman’s Sandman.

While we take a moment to consider the idea of Rudd and the equally loveable Mark Ruffalo sharing the Marvel universe, it’s worth looking back to 2008 when Edgar Wright first shared his vision for Ant-Man with Empire. “It’s more of a full-on action adventure sci-fi film but with a comedic element”, he explained at that early stage, “in the same spirit of a lot of escapist fare like that. It’s certainly not a superhero spoof or pastiche and it certainly isn’t a sort of Honey I Shrunk The Kids endeavour at all.”

Marvel’s confidence in Wright, co-screenwriter Joe Cornish and (probably) Rudd is great enough for it to have pushed Ant-Man into the cinematic boiler room that is summer 2015 - July 31, to be exact.

Bryan Singer Talks X-Men: Apocalypse
'It will address historical mutant-cy!'

As with the Apes franchise, we've not yet had the first sequel to X-Men: First Class, and yet we're already talking about the third instalment. X-Men: Days Of Future Past arrives shortly, but all eyes are now on X-Men: Apocalypse, the nascent existence of which director Bryan Singer revealed just before Christmas. Singer has now given some further cursory details of what's in store in 2016.

"It will address historical mutant-cy," Singer told EW, "meaning the deep past, mutant origins and things like that. It’s something that’s always intrigued me when we think about our Gods and our history and miracles and powers.”

In terms of specific plot, the director is saying nothing, but does confirm that "something that happens in Days Of Future Past causes what's going to happen in Apocalypse". He says he's as-yet undecided about whether there will be an Apocalypse teaser during the credits of this year's movie. Given recent precedent, however, we wouldn't call it unlikely.

And will Singer actually direct Apocalypse? That too is still to be determined. "I’m co-writing the story and I’m producing it,” he says, "and I’m negotiating to direct. We’re in the process. We’re trying to figure it out, schedules. My desire would be to direct it.”

For more Apocalyptic speculation, head over to Empire's handy first-thoughts guide. Days Of Future Past, meanwhile, stars Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Peter Dinklage, Nicholas Hoult, Evan Peters, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Fan Bingbing, Daniel Cudmore... the list goes on.

Sadly, it will not feature Anna Paquin, but if it's any consolation we did just learn that Evan Jonigkeit is playing Toad. It's out in the UK on May 23.

Michael Douglas to Play Hank Pym in ANT-MAN

Merely a week after being told that Paul Rudd will indeed be starring in Edgar Wright’s highly-anticipated Ant-Man for Marvel, playing Scott Lang, we get word that none other than Hollywood legend and Liberace himself, Michael Douglas, has joined the film to play Hank Pym, the originator of the Pym Particles and the creator of the shrinky-dink technology.

In the comics, Hank Pym is renowned for being a violent spousal abuser, and there was some question as to whether the notoriously upbeat film franchise would go down such a dark path with its lead character. Turns out, no, they won’t. Rudd will be playing Scott Lang, who is a reformed thief who picks up the Ant-Mantle from Hank Pym, who can go ahead and be a wife beater, I guess, because he’s not the lead anymore.

From Marvel’s website, here’s what Marvel Entertainment Chieftain Kevin Feige had to say about the casting: “With Hank Pym’s rich history in the Marvel Universe, we knew we needed an actor capable of bringing the weight and stature to the role that the character deserves. We felt incredibly relieved when Michael Douglas agreed to step into the part with the charm and fortitude he brings to every character he inhabits, and couldn’t be more excited to see what he will do to bring Hank Pym to life.”

Ant-Man will be in theaters here in the United States of America on July 31st, 2015

Thomas Kretschmann Joins Avengers: Age Of Ultron

While we know who will be playing the primary Biggus Baddus in The Avengers: Age Of Ultron – James Spader as rogue artificial intelligence Ultron – Joss Whedon clearly wants to give Earth’s Mightiest Heroes a bit more of a challenge. As a result, Thomas Kretschmann is joining the cast as Baron Wolfgang von Strucker.

In the comics, Strucker was a German soldier disfigured by facial scars who became one of Hitler’s top men during his rise to power. He tangled with both Captain America and Nick Fury, and joined Hydra, becoming instrumental in its evil schemes.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Strucker will once more be causing trouble for Samuel L. Jackson’s Fury and Chris Evans’ Cap, though its story doesn’t specify whether he’ll be seen in flashback to World War II, or will (more likely) be a troublemaker in the present day. Between The Winter Soldier and this, we bet Steve Rogers will be getting sick of his past coming back to haunt him.

Kretschmann joins a cast that includes the returning regulars Jackson, Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner and Scarlett Johansson plus franchise newcomers Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch) and Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Quicksilver). Don Cheadle also looks set to join the fun as James Rhodes.

Johansson recently talked up Whedon’s script for the sequel, saying, “It doesn’t lose that exciting comic-book aspect that people enjoyed in the first film, but it’s smart and it feels like the next instalment. It doesn’t feel like a rehashing, it feels like these characters are moving forward, plot lines are moving forward.”

The Avengers: Age Of Ultron will be out on May 1, 2015.

SUPERMAN-BATMAN Movie Gets Pushed Back To 2016

Warner Bros. Pictures has decided to push back the release of its highly anticipated Superman-Batman movie into 2016. The studio claims that this is the best move for them to provide their filmmakers with the “time to realize fully their vision.”

The movie was originally scheduled for release on July 15, 2015, but now won’t be hitting the big screen for almost an entire year after the original date, on May 6, 2016.  The delay came after production on the film got moved into the second quarter of this year. Warner Bros. Pictures’ untitled Peter Pan movie, however, will be moving its release date to July 17, 2015, filling in the gap being left by the Superman-Batman movie.

THE FLASH CW Pilot Finds Its Iris West

Actress Candice Patton, known for her role in the series The Game and the television movie The Craigslist Killer, has joined the cast for the CW pilot of DC Comics’ The Flash as Iris West. She joins Glee’s Grant Gustin as Barry Allen and Jesse L. Martin, who plays her father Detective West and also serves as a kind of surrogate father to Barry after his mother is murdered.

Although in the comics Iris is a reporter and Barry’s love interest (and eventual wife, in the old pre-New 52 continuity), in the upcoming show she is being described as “Allen’s fast-talking, quick-witted best friend.”  Of course, the biggest departure for her character is that unlike in the comics, this Iris will be African-American, as will the entire West family. So when Wally West turns up in the television series (assuming it goes to series), it’s safe to assume you can forget the ginger look.  The project is being developed by Warner Bros TV and Berlanti Productions.

BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN Has Found Its Lex Luthor and Alfred

You know what’s better than a million Batman vs. Superman casting rumors? A billion Batman vs. Superman casting rumors. Even better than that? Real, confirmed casting news straight from Warner Bros.! Well, today is your lucky day – or not, depending on how you take what comes next – because Warner Bros. announced in a press release that it has cast Jesse Eisenberg as Superman’s nemesis Lex Luthor and Jeremy Irons as Batman’s trusty butler Alfred. Prepare for the comment section to explode like Metropolis in Man of Steel in 3…2…1…

Here’s the official press release:

BURBANK, CA, January 31, 2014 – Warner Bros. Pictures announced today that Jesse Eisenberg has been set to star as Lex Luthor and Jeremy Irons will play Alfred in the upcoming Zack Snyder untitled Superman/Batman film. The dual announcement was made today by Greg Silverman, President, Creative Development and Worldwide Production, and Sue Kroll, President, Worldwide Marketing and International Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures.

Snyder stated, “Lex Luthor is often considered the most notorious of Superman’s rivals, his unsavory reputation preceding him since 1940. What’s great about Lex is that he exists beyond the confines of the stereotypical nefarious villain. He’s a complicated and sophisticated character whose intellect, wealth and prominence position him as one of the few mortals able to challenge the incredible might of Superman. Having Jesse in the role allows us to explore that interesting dynamic, and also take the character in some new and unexpected directions.”

The director added, “As everyone knows, Alfred is Bruce Wayne’s most trusted friend, ally and mentor, a noble guardian and father figure. He is an absolutely critical element in the intricate infrastructure that allows Bruce Wayne to transform himself into Batman. It is an honor to have such an amazingly seasoned and gifted actor as Jeremy taking on the important role of the man who mentors and guides the guarded and nearly impervious façade that encapsulates Bruce Wayne.”

Snyder’s film stars Henry Cavill, reprising his role as Superman/Clark Kent, Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne, and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince. The film also reunites “Man of Steel” stars Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane.

The new film is currently being written by Chris Terrio, from a screenplay by David S. Goyer. Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder are producing, with Benjamin Melniker, Michael E. Uslan, Wesley Coller, David S. Goyer and Geoff Johns serving as executive producers.

The film is set to open worldwide on May 6, 2016, and is based on Superman characters created by Jerry Siegel & Joe Shuster, Batman characters created by Bob Kane, and Wonder Woman created by William Moulton Marston, appearing in comic books published by DC Entertainment.

The announcement of both Ben Affleck as Batman and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman sent fans into a tizzy, prompting some overzealous types to sign petitions to have them removed from the iconic roles, so one wonders how this news will be taken. As much fun as I’ve had doing Michael Caine impressions over the last several years, Jeremy Irons seems like he’ll make a fine Alfred, perhaps showing an edge to Batman’s trusted valet that hasn’t been seen in past iterations. As for Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, I’ll admit that I was surprised; not because I can’t picture as a younger Lex Luthor — I totally can — but because I genuinely thought they would be going for a slightly older actor for the alopecia-afflicted villain. That being said, imagining Lex Luthor as Mark Zuckerberg with kryptonite sounds pretty excellent, especially for a modern interpretation of the megalomaniacal Man of Steel menace.

https://www.nerdist.com/2014/02/avengers-age-of-ultron-sets-paul-bettany-to-play-the-vision/

AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON Sets Paul Bettany to Play The Vision

Rumors have been swirling about British actor Paul Bettany ever since news broke that he was signing on to Joss Whedon’s hotly anticipated Avengers sequel, Avengers: Age of Ultron. While Bettany has established himself as the voice of Jarvis, the Samantha to Tony Stark’s Theodore Twombly, many speculated that he would be taking on the menacing mechanical mantle of Ultron, which as we know now is the purview of James Spader. Now, thanks to some sleuthing by the Daily Mail (and confirmed by other outlets), we know that Bettany will be playing The Vision, the iconic android Avenger. I don’t know about you guys, but I couldn’t be more excited by this news.

It’s fitting that The Vision is a part of Joss Whedon’s sprawling sequel, especially given the hero’s ties to Ultron. Originally created by Jack Kirby and Joe Simon for Timely Comics, the Vision as we know him today rose to prominence in comics’ Silver Age thanks to Roy Thomas and John Buscema. Created by Ultron as a weapon against the Avengers, The Vision was imbued with the personality of the deceased Wonder Man (Simon Williams) and given shape with a cloned body of the original Human Torch. I imagine Whedon’s version of the Vision’s origin will be a bit less esoteric, but here’s hoping that he’ll still wind up getting together with Wanda Maximoff, a.k.a. The Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen).

At long last, Bettany will get to be more than a glorified Siri for Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark. That isn’t to diminish the excellent work he did as Jarvis, but rather to express how unreasonably excited I am that one of my favorite Avengers will be making his way to the big screen. Given that production is starting next month, there’s still plenty of time to rewrite the post-credit sequence to have Bettany’s Vision interacting with the Tupac Coachella hologram. Virtual shawarma, anyone?

CW’s THE FLASH Pilot Casts Its Nora Allen

According to a report at Deadline, the pilot for the CW’s The Flash has added another crucial cast member. Michelle Harrison (the CW’s Emily Owens, MD) has been added to the cast of this latest live-action incarnation of the Fastest Man Alive, playing the guest starring/recurring role of Barry’s mother, Nora Allen. She joins Grant Gustin as Barry Allen/The Flash, Candice Patton as Iris West, Jesse L. Martin as Detective West, Rick Cosnett as Eddie Thawne (The Reverse Flash?), Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow/Killer Frost, and Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon/Vibe, and original TV Flash John Wesley Shipp in a mystery role.

Although the story says that Harrison will be a recurring role, in the more recent modern comics, Barry Allen gets into forensic science to to try to figure out who murdered his mother Nora when he was a little boy. His father is accused of the crime and incarcerated for it, but Barry never believes his father was the culprit, and spends the rest of his adult life trying to figure out who it was that killed his mother. It is possible of course that the television version won’t go with the idea of Barry’s mother having been killed, but more likely her recurring role will be seen through the use of flashbacks.

GOTHAM Casts Its Final Two Series Regulars

With production about to begin on Fox’s highly anticipated Jim Gordon origin story, Gotham is hard at work casting its remaining series regular roles, and today the network announced the final two additions to the series.

1) Touch’s David Mazouz has been cast as a young Bruce Wayne, thus confirming once and for all the character will exist in the series and that he will be around for more than just the pilot. “Sentenced to a solitary life after the tragic murder of his wealthy parents, young Bruce relies on the guidance and protection of Alfred Pennyworth and James Gordon.”

2) Freshman actress Camren Bicondova will play a teenage orphan version of Selina Kyle who “is suspicious and wholly unpredictable. A street thief and skilled pickpocket, she’s dangerous when cornered.”

As far as Selina goes, considering pilot director Danny Canon handled similar themes with the introduction of certain characters in the pilot of The CW’s Nikita, it’s reassuring to know he’s working on (at least) the first episode of this series.

So not only do we now have confirmation of a young Bruce Wayne, but also that of a young Selina Kyle. Add to that Jada Pinkett Smith, Donal Logue, Ben McKenzie, and the confirmed inclusion of The Penguin and Alfred (among others), and it really seems whatever the plan is for Gotham, it’s going to always remember its roots as a comic book show…. something DC has a proven track record of doing quite well.

Toby Kebbell Will Be Doctor Doom

Last month, word arrived that 20th Century Fox was zeroing in on the likely candidate to play Victor Von Doom, the man who will be the primary nemesis for the new breed of heroes in Josh Trank’s new take on the Fantastic Four comics. According to Variety we have a winner, in the shape of Toby Kebbell.

With Trank set to kick off shooting soon, the casting side has been falling into place quickly. Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell are aboard as the main heroes Reed “Mr. Fantastic” Richards, Sue “Invisible Girl” Storm, Johnny “Human Torch” Storm and Ben “The Thing” Grimm.”

Kebbell had been up against Domhnall Gleeson, Sam Riley and Eddie Redmayne for the role of Doctor Doom the masked villain hailing from the fictional nation of Latveria. He’s certainly on Fox’s radar thanks to a role in Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes and has been at work on Warcraft for director Duncan Jones. While Variety’s story cautions that no deal is in place yet, it would appear to be a matter of hammering out the final details. Assuming everything is figured out, Kebbell and co will be on screens from June 18 next year.
