While Marvel has done a great job with its superheroes, they havenít had the greatest luck with their villains. For every Loki or Alexander Pierce, thereís an Anton Vanko or Malekith to offset things. However, if the new Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer is any indication, the insane robot Ultron may switch things up when he debuts next year.
Following the release of the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer comes the official poster, which reminds us that the Avengers will assemble in 2015, and Ultron is coming...
With all the villains that plague Gotham, protagonists like Jim Gordon are at a severe disadvantage. Fortunately, another good guy has joined the ranks. Firefly actress Morena Baccarin will recur as this pivotal character from the Batman mythos.
Did you happen to watch the absolutely magnificent first trailer for Marvelís Avengers: Age of Ultron, which leaked online earlier tonight? (Check it out, seriously.) Iím betting ABC is hoping that you didnít, though.
The folks at Marvel Studios are well mastered in the art of the tease. Not only do they manage to maintain an air of secrecy around all of their projects as they move through production, but all of their trailers bring big thrills and leave fans always wanting more. The debut trailer for Joss Whedonís The Avengers: Age of Ultron fits this description perfectly. It now feels like we know a lot more about the film, but weíre also left with a bunch of burning questions.
It didn't take long after the release of X-Men: Days of Future Past for the franchise filmmakers to realize that they would need to give Evan Peters' Quicksilver a much bigger role in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse. Audiences truly fell in love with the wacky, speedy mutant this past summer, and the sequence where he helps Magneto break out of the Pentagon is considered by many to be the best in the film.
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.
X-Men: Days of Future Past was not only one of the most successful blockbusters of 2014, but it was able to correct the path of the X-Men film franchise and set it in an exciting new direction. However, even with those accomplishments, itís still not safe from the critical analysis of an Honest Movie Trailer.
Keanu Reeves has gotten to play a variety of roles over the years, but one type of character heís never been able to sink his teeth into is a superhero. Unfortunately for him, the two superheroes heís expressed interest in playing also happen to be the ones who wonít be free anytime soon.
When it comes to comic book media, movies tend to influences the actual books rather than vice-versa. However, itís possible that Marvel may be using this update Infinity Gauntlet to tease some directions the Marvel Cinematic Universe may be going.
Joss Whedon's The Avengers: Age of Ultron is guaranteed to be one of the biggest blockbusters of 2015, and as a result, many have been dying to get their first glimpse at the film. For the longest time it has been a mystery when we would be getting to see the first trailer, but that question now has an answer.
Given its title and release date about one year before Justice League is set to come out, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is expected to feature many more heroes than just those mentioned in the title (and no, I'm not talking about Wonder Woman).
After a few years of making middling movies like Dead Silence and Death Sentence, James Wan has begun to emerge as one of the big name directors in Hollywood. Given his career trajectory, it was only a matter of time before the comic book movie genre came calling, and it seems that the folks at Warner Bros., New Line and DC Comics are striking first.
In 2020, DC is giving one of its greatest superheroes another shot on the big screen. Announced with the rest of Warner Bros. lineup of DC films, Green Lantern will be rebooted, allowing it to escape the shadow of the 2011 film. However, even with this fresh start, one thing is unclear: which Green Lantern will they use for the DC Cinematic Universe? Hereís a rundown of their options.
Next year, Marvelís batch of Netflix programming focusing on the street-level heroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will kick off with Daredevil in May.

Here's how the new series will be different from Marvel's other TV fodder.
While the series is only two episodes in, The Flash has done a good job of getting the audience familiar with its main characters...with one huge exception: Eddie Thawne. Eddie is still being kept a mystery, and actor Rick Cosnett says that over this season, the show will delve into the mystery of who Eddie Thawne is, and if the comics are any indication, it could be a doozy!

If you're like me (by which I mean weird and far too geeky for your own good), then you probably walked out of James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy this summer not only wanting to listen to the soundtrack over and over, but to get it on cassette tape. For those of you who felt this way, I have some pretty kick-ass news.
Part of me understands why James Gunn and others behind the scenes would think that thereís only so much that you can do with Groot. He only says a few words Ė mostly, ďI am Groot.Ē
The Fantastic Four reboot is a pretty crucial project for the folks over at 20th Century Fox. Right now the X-Men franchise is on a very good path, but if the studio really wants to expand their in-house comic book movie world, then that means Fantastic Four needs to work with both critics and audiences.
The Avengers: Age of Ultron is still seven months away from hitting theaters, but the blockbuster sequel has already broken new ground.

Thereís been a lot of buzz on the Internet over the 2016 Doctor Strange movie.

Gotham has only been on for a few short weeks, yet Foxís drama is already becoming known for its slew of well-drawn villains. Jada Pinkett Smith plays a brand new character in the Batman prequel, and recently she divulged how she was able to land the part of Fish Mooney on the high profile series. Apparently, it involves a wig, a leash and young man.
Last week we learned that Chinese audiences aren't too happy with the poorly translated subtitles for Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy - to the point where it has been said to actually detract from the film. Due to a less than adequate job preparing the movie for its release in China, many have complained that a lot of the jokes and puns don't land because movie-goers don't properly understand the dialogue and situations.
As Joss Whedon's The Avengers cuts to black and begins its first round of end credits, there is a lasting image of the last surviving letter on the outside of Stark Tower: the letter "A." Given the chosen font, it was pretty obviously a nod to the fact that the building would wind up becoming The Avengers Tower - but as cool as that Easter Egg is, now there is a cooler story about the character (specifically about its current whereabouts).
For weeks, there have been rumors that actress Jena Malone is involved with the production of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.

While the 1960s Batman TV series gave us great versions of Batmanís iconic villains, one bad guy who was left out was Two-Face. For years fans have wondered how he might have looked in tis groovy, psychedelic setting, and now, thanks to a comic book, they can find out.
Although DC Comics has many shows on the air this fall, most of them arenít connected with each other.

Guardians of the Galaxy is on track to being the highest grossing movie of the year, not to mention possibly the most popular Marvel outing yet. But the love for all things, Groot, Gamora, Rocket, Drax and Star-Lord is being lost on the Chineses. Well, lost in translation anyway.

It's why we so often see billionaire characters in Hollywood movies throw big, lavish parties - and it turns out that Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is no different. What does set Luthor's big bash apart, however, is his very special guest list, which reportedly includes a good number of superheroes.
This past summerís San Diego Comic-Con was a rather disappointing one for comic book movie fans. While many Ė including myself Ė had incredibly high expectations of big reveals, we were actually left learning very little big news. This past week, however, has been what I expected Comic-Con to be.
The big Marvel movie news this week was that Robert Downey Jr. would be joining Captain America 3, which is set to be an adaptation of the crossover Civil War. In the comics, Steve Rogers was killed after Civil War ended, and while itís unlikely heíll die in Captain America 3, Marvel may be setting up the patriotic superhero for demise in the coming years. Here are reasons they would do that.
Poor Jon Favreau. Not only was he replaced by Shane Black as Iron Man 3ís director but it has now been revealed that his character, Happy Hogan, was originally supposed to die in the blockbuster. Thankfully the studio had a change of heart and decided that Happy would end up in a coma instead.

DC has a unique opportunity to define a new chapter of Wonder Woman's legacy with this 2017 movie. With the right director, DC could craft something spectacular and iconic with Wonder Woman. But who'd be up to the task of taking on a superheroine movie that even Joss Whedon found tricky? Here are five filmmakers who could do Wonder Woman justice.
Gosling hasnít flirted with tentpoles over the course of his career. He makes movies like Drive, The Place Beyond the Pines, Blue Valentine and Lars and the Real Girl -- smaller, offbeat and director-driven movies that find niche audiences but arenít, you know, superhero movies.
While the The CW hopes to continue spinning off the success of Arrow, DC rolled out their plans for a concurrently expanding cinematic universe. The development will obviously have an effect on the small-screen superheroes but to what extent remains unclear.

But it many be years before we actually get to see his take on the character.
To mark the solemn anniversary of Christopher Reeveís death last Friday, his son, Matthew Reeve, attended New York Comic Con where he made a stunning declaration to honor his father.
