It was rumored not long ago that Angelina Jolie was eyeing the Captain Marvel directing gig over at Marvel Studios, but that rumor is now more of a reality as new reports confirm that Jolie is definitely being considered for the job. Not only that, but now that Michelle MacLaren is off Wonder Woman, it looks like Warner Bros. is also interested in having Jolie direct that film. Two female-driven superhero movies enter; only one can leave with Angelina Jolie.

Everyone is going to see Avengers: Age of Ultron because it’s filled with big action carried out by men and women in cool superhero costumes. But if it’s anything like the first Avengers, it will resonate because the people in those costumes are a blast to be around. The latest clip from Joss Whedon’s eagerly anticipated sequel is light on action but heavy on group camaraderie. Scenes like this are going to make Age of Ultron a billion dollar movie.

When an actor signs on to play a superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, they typically aren’t signing up for a single movie. They’re signing up for a whole bunch — sometimes as many as nine films — so Marvel can plan ahead for years, scoping out where a character can go over the course of several appearances. But contracts run out and some actors managed to finagle their way in without signing up for a bunch of movies in advance. So superhero movie fans always wonder just how many more times they’ll get to see Chris Evans play Captain America or Robert Downey Jr. play Iron Man. How many movies are left on their contract? What’s next?

By all accounts (namely the lucky few who have managed to see it already), the marketing for Avengers: Age of Ultron has managed to keep many of the film’s biggest surprises safely hidden away. However, with a little more than two weeks remaining until most audiences can see the film, a few little pieces of plot and a few little reveals have begun to leak out. A new batch of photos from the film contain familiar imagery, but they also contain a few tiny surprises that some fans may want to see in theaters. You decide whether or not you wish to proceed...

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has inspired plenty of theories on Season 2’s Age of Ultron connection, Inhumans, or even a Secret Warriors spinoff, but the Avengers-adjacent drama has at least one major tie to the next big-screen epic. Cobie Smulders has confirmed her return to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. before the Season 2 finale, but what brings Maria Hill back in Coulson’s orbit?

Without a great adversary, what good is a superhero? Without someone to punch in the face, Batman would just be some rich schmuck driving around in a weird-looking tank.

Let’s bring on the bad guys and give them their moment in the sun. With Avengers: Age of Ultron introducing another memorable baddie in the form of James Spader’s titular metallic menace, let’s take some time to run down the 10 greatest superhero movie villains of all time.

OK, let’s state up front that the Iris material is a complete anchor on the show and that Eddie Thawne is probably the only reasonable person on The Flash when it comes to her being in the dark about Barry Allen’s identity. The show is building towards a place where Eddie is disillusioned by The Flash and ultimately starts the path that Eobard Thawne picks up a few centuries from now. The show can’t undo the mess it’s done here, so it just has to plow through the muck until that glorious, glorious day in which Iris knows Barry Allen’s secret.
