BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Most people are familiar with the standard operating procedure when it comes to auditions in Hollywood. An actor prepares a scene or is given pages of a script to work from, sits or stands in front of group of people (director, producers, casting director, etc.) in a room, and performs in hopes of being seen as the perfect fit for a particular character or film. This has been the process used by studios and filmmakers for decades - but it's apparently not the method used by the folks over at Marvel Studios.
Ant-Man may not be getting the same amount of attention right now as The Avengers: Age of Ultron, but Marvel is slowly working towards getting the general public familiar with the shrinking superhero. This includes a special project that’s coming out one month before the film’s debut.

Fans have spent years wondering just how many films Robert Downey Jr. will wind up doing with Marvel Studios.

Of course, whenever an actor agrees to a contract with Marvel, it's never for just one film, which leads us to wonder exactly how many movies Chardick Boseman is signed on for. It turns out that we didn't have to wait that long for an answer to this burning question.
Mark Ruffalo himself revealed this interesting conundrum while chatting with myself and a small group of other journalists between set ups, discussing just how much we’ll be getting to hear The Hulk speak in the upcoming sequel.

As awesome as it was, however, the image also generated interesting speculation regarding exactly why Iron Man and Hulk would be fighting.
Let's be real: the first trailer of The Avengers: Age of Ultron just wasn't enough. Luckily, Marvel is a company that cares, which is why this week's new episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will feature some brand new footage from the movie - as will the coming 75th anniversary special, Marvel 75 Years: From Pulp to Pop! that will be airing one week from tomorrow.

The folks at Marvel Studios are well mastered in the art of the tease.

It now feels like we know a lot more about the film, but we’re also left with a bunch of burning questions.
The internet is nothing if not impatient. Even if you tell everyone that what they want is only a week away, that won't stop them from trying to get it early. As a result of this, the first trailer for Joss Whedon's The Avengers: Age of Ultron is now online.
