The trailer for 'The Avengers 2' was only released last night, but fans have already gone through every shot with a fine toothed comb, picking out every possible detail and squeezing every possible secret from the footage. All of the educated guesses and assumptions have led to one very interesting rumor: could Andy Serkis be playing the villainous Ulysses Klaw, a foe to the Marvel hero Black Panther?
The Avengers: Age of Ultron
As the 'Avengers 2' trailer leaked online last night about six days earlier than planned, we got our first look at Marvel's latest (and biggest) villain, Ultron, in action. Set the creepy tune of Pinocchio's "I've Got No Strings," we got to see a little bit of what Ultron is all about. And, fresh off that first look, James Spader - the voice and actor behind Ultron - has some words about his cinematic counterpart: "He's really batshit crazy!"
Seems like the internet just couldn't wait for that 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' trailer to premiere. Just last night, Marvel announced that the trailer would debut following next week's new episode of 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,' and tonight a pirated version found its way online. Marvel reacted quickly by posting the real deal and revealing a new teaser poster.
Can't wait until next week's episode of 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' to see the 'Avengers 2' trailer? We feel your pain. While we can't make the 'Avengers 2' trailer magically arrive like some kind of Scarlet Witch, we can offer you up this very cool sneak peek at the new footage. How about a first look at Tony Stark in the new Hulkbuster Iron Man armor, plus an all-new look at Ultron?
Well this is definitely a pleasant surprise! Those who tuned in to tonight's new episode of 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' were treated to a very special dispatch from Marvel: the studio will be premiering the first official trailer for 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' during next week's all-new episode, so we guess you'll just have to tune-in again. But you were already planning on doing that anyway, weren't you? Unless you're a member of Hydra or something.
A few days ago, Marvel Studios' executive vice president of visual effects and post-production spoke at the Visual Effects Society Production Summit. Although most of her speech was industry inside baseball, she did drop one interesting factoid that should prove interesting to news-hungry superhero nerds: 'Avengers 2' will feature more special effects shots than any other Marvel movie so far.
Last night came the shocking announcement: Robert Downey, Jr. will star in 'Captain America 3' alongside Chris Evans, kicking off the Civil War storyline in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But, what exactly is the Civil War storyline and what does it mean for 'Captain America 3,' 'Avengers 3,' the Infinity Gauntlet plans, Spider-Man and the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe?! (Whew!)

There's been a lot of 'Iron Man 4' talk over the past few days as Robert Downey, Jr. continues his whirlwind promotional tour for 'The Judge' across a multitude of talk shows. He's confirmed it, issued demands, backpedaled, confirmed it again and now, via an appearance on David Letterman last night, he clarified all the recent rumors and (we think?) issued the definitive word on 'Iron Man 4' and his future at Marvel.
