Though Joss Whedon is busy working on the script for 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron' and has admittedly been conceptualizing his sequel for some time, he still answered the call when 'Thor: The Dark World' director Alan Taylor was in trouble. According to Taylor, Whedon came in to save some major issues he was having with the film.

Superhero movie casting is often controversial, inspiring much wailing and gnashing of teeth from fanboys, but you'd be hard-pressed to find anyone who thinks that James Spader playing Ultron in 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron' is a bad idea. The three-time Emmy award-winning star of 'Boston Legal' and 'The Practice' feels like the right fit for Marvel. He's also the exact kind of actor that writer/director Joss Whedon wanted in his movie.

So much for those rumors that Paul Bettany (as Jarvis) would be playing Ultron... Marvel announced today that Joss Whedon has cast the maniacal, villainous robot in 'Avengers 2: Age of Ultron' but instead of Bettany (who has voiced Jarvis in all three 'Iron Man' films and 'The Avengers'), we'll instead get...James Spader?

Every major film goes through an extensive development process where it is continuously rewritten and rebuilt until it everyone feels it is ready to go before the cameras. This means that many of your favorite movies were, at one point, completely different than the finished product. This definitely applies to 'The Avengers,' but we're only just now starting to understand the extreme evolution Joss Whedon's film took on its way to the big screen.
New animatics from early in the film's development have popped up online and they give us a look at a completely different version of the film, including glimpses of the Wasp, a character who was completely cut from the movie.

'Avengers' director and current Marvel Studios creative head muckity-muck Joss Whedon has a knack for killing off beloved characters. You need to look to further than 'Buffy,' Firefly,' 'Angel' and, of course, 'The Avengers' for evidence. But, as he prepares to shoot 'Avengers 2: Age of Ultron' in a few months, will Whedon take things up a notch and, gulp, kill one of the Avengers?

Though there is a sense of rivalry between the DC and Marvel movie universes (or at least jealously, which seems the only reason Warner Brothers was so desperate to make 'Justice League'), the people behind these films have no ill will towards their supposed competitors. 'Avengers' director Joss Whedon -- after a day where many disparaged the casting of Ben Affleck as the new Batman -- has thrown his support behind the filmmaker-turned-crimefighter.

Our excitement for Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' hasn't abated since the announcement in May, or the world premiere of the pilot episode at Comic-Con 2013, though most new trailers and photos have shown us what we've already seen.
