As we get closer and closer to the new Avengers 2 trailer (which debuts on ABC this Friday), we've got yet another character poster from the film, this time focusing on de facto leader, Captain America. But, is this our last poster, or are some of the new members of the Avengers going to join the fun?
At first glance, Ex Machina might be most notable for the pairing of upcoming Star Wars: Episode 7 actors Oscar Issac and Domhnall Gleeson, but it's clear upon watching this new trailer, that the upcoming sci-fi film is much more than that.
I just sat down with Chris Evans, in full Captain America costume, on the Avengers: Age of Ultron set. After just the first question, Evans says, “I can’t tell you that.” Okay... The next question is equally as innocuous; something about the current “group dynamic” of the Avengers, or whatever. Evans pauses and glances behind him at a Marvel publicist, who shakes his head. “I don’t think I can tell you that either.”
We prodded Renner for some details, and he wouldn't divulge much, but did promise some “wonderful secrets” about Hawkeye's past, including his relationship with Black Widow. (Remember, she was wearing the Hawkeye “arrow” necklace in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.) He also teases his new Stark Industries tech, being a “grump” and what exactly Hawkeye thinks when he sees Vision.
Last week, when Robert Downey, Jr. revealed the Iron Man character poster for Avengers 2, he also teased a “big announcement” in 8 days, which would be this upcoming Thursday. We're still a few days away, but we might have our strongest hint yet at what this big announcement is. Last night, ABC ran a promo last night revealing that the third and final Avengers 2 trailer would air on Thursday night during the series premiere of American Crime.
The latest Avengers 2 poster has hit the web, and everyone’s favorite marksman — Hawkeye — is up next. Jeremy Renner shared the image today, and while he said nothing specific about it, we have one big theory about what it means for Clint Barton in Age of Ultron.
We're on the set of Avengers: Age of Ultron, inside the new Avengers Tower; formerly Stark Tower and now converted to a de facto headquarters for the Earth’s mightiest heroes. It’s all very sleek and shiny and pretty much exactly what you'd expect from a place Tony Stark calls home. Except now, it's a complete disaster. There's broken glass scattered across the floor. Furniture is destroyed. There are giant gashes in the wall. There's a production assistant dramatically swinging a giant cape around (the actors film their fight scenes without the cape, and the cape is added later in post-production).
Yesterday saw the release of a new Avengers 2 poster focusing solely on Iron Man. It was a welcome break from the earlier, overcrowded Avengers 2 poster. At the time, Robert Downey, Jr. promised a “big announcement” on March 5, and while we still don't know what that announcement will be, it looks like we'll be getting new Avengers 2 posters each day as a countdown. Today, we have another new poster featuring Hulk doing what Hulk does best — Hulking out.
As Spectre continues filming, we are treated today to another dispatch from the Bond 24 set. The last video blog focused on the snowy shoot on the top of the Austrian mountains and this new installment features new behind the scenes footage of Daniel Craig as James Bond as well as Ralph Fiennes (M), Naomie Harris (Moneypenny), and Ben Whishaw (Q).
Just in case yesterday's Avengers 2 poster reveal wasn't enough superhero action for you, we've got even more for you today. While it seemed like every superhero was crammed onto the previous poster, everyone is getting some space now with some character posters. Up first? Iron Man.
