October 1939 saw the debut of ‘Marvel Comics,’ only that was the title of the comic book series, not the publication company itself. Decades before Marvel became Marvel, it began as Timely Publications and shortly thereafter — for a time — Timely Comics. It would further re-brand itself as Atlas Comics in the 1950s and transition into Marvel Comics in the 1960s. And the rest — as they say — is history.
For the Marvel fan that has almost everything, Beast Kingdom will offer life-size sculpts of the Hulkbuster from Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, which is now available for pre-order from Entertainment Earth, although the 9 3/4 foor tall statue — which clocks in at a whopping 1500 pounds — is equally as heavy on the wallet, costing a mere $18,000 plus the custom shipping (not to mention the required lift for ‘installation’). For all that moolah, it’s worth noting that it also lights up. The official description is as follows:
Walt Disney Studios Japan’s movie trailers have always managed to deviate from the ‘norm.’ They tend to feature different footage — often including spoilers, which would be considered taboo in other countries — and are edited to create an emotional story, rather than just splashy glimpses of various, unrelated scenes. Perhaps never has this been demonstrated more in this trailer for Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron which touches upon just every moment in the film that had audiences gasping. To put it mildly, if you have not seen the film yet, we do not advise you watch the trailer below. Unless you are a diehard Hawkeye fan that is.
The next evolution of the Marvel Cinematic Universe brings a founding member of The Avengers to the big screen for the first time with Marvel Studios’ Ant-Man. Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, master thief Scott Lang must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.
With just under a week before the domestic theatrical release of Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron (May 1, 2015), Marvel Studios and Walt Disney Studios have provided us with several dozen high resolution stills. While some have been previously released and some are from the official press kit (and even shared by us via Twitter), all of them are just full of awesomeness. You can find the new stills embedded in our gallery below.
Yesterday, Marvel released details for the upcoming original motion picture soundtrack for Avengers: Age of Ultron (May 1, 2015) which will be available to own digitally on April 28 and on physical CD on May 19 (now available for pre-order).
In all, 28 tracks from the score were release (listed below). And while one track isn’t actually in the film (Danny Elfman’s ‘Heroes’), we were greeted with another surprise when a copy of the soundtrack landed on our virtual doorstep: a 29th track. It’s scored by Elfman and its overly complicated title is: ‘New Avengers – Avengers: Age of Ultron’ and it clocks in at 3:09, making it one of the longest tracks on the score. We have reached out to Hollywood Records for clarification and will update with additional information as it becomes available to us.
After their whirlwind publicity tour throughout Hollywood, not to mention the star studded world premiere last night at the Dolby Theatre, the Avengers are making their way to the Big Apple for an appearance on ABC’s ‘Good Morning America,’ on Friday, April 24, 2015.
Earlier this evening, Marvel Unlimited sent out an email to its Unlimited Plus members offering the first fifteen to respond the opportunity for them and their guests to attend the event as ‘VIP Super Fans.’ While those slots are most likely filled by now, Marvel notes that the event will be open to all fans (and presumably anyone who wishes to attend ‘Good Morning America’) and confirms it will be held outside in Times Square, just outside GMA’s Studios.
Marvel Studios has released two additional clips from Avengers: Age of Ultron (May 1, 2015), which you can find embedded below. The first clip puts Tony Stark against the rest of the Avengers, while the second features Black Widow talking the Hulk down.
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.
MTV has shared the clip from Avengers: Age of Ultron (May 1, 2015) that it premiered earlier this evening on the MTV Movie Awards program. The clip, which features Iron Man as Hulkbuster taking on Hulk in the streets, is just a portion of the clip we previously described that was shown last month at the annual Disney shareholder meeting. For full details of the scene, which of course includes details seen below, see our previous report.
