Before Marvel's Thor finally hit theaters in 2011, there were multiple attempts from directors to make a movie based on the popular comic character. Way back in 1991, Sam Raimi (who had just directed Darkman) pitched both Stan Lee and Marvel his take on the Norse god, but the studio “didn’t get it” according to the director. Probably a good thing, because if they did, we might not have the Avengers movies. This is just one of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which heads to Asgard with Thor!

Every good superhero has to upgrade his costume from time to time. Superman lost his underwear for Man of Steel. Batman got nipples for Batman & Robin. It’s just part of the superhero job. But Iron Man may be taking his job to extremes. In just five onscreen appearances — Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Avengers, Iron Man 3 and the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron — Tony Stark has created an astounding 45 armors. We’re here to take a look back at all 45 of them (plus the odd War Machine or Iron Patriot).
Avengers: Age of Ultron opens in theaters one month from today, which is crazy. Crazy because it seemed liked just the other day we were at Comic-Con in 2013 when Joss Whedon showed up, announced the Age of Ultron title and revealed the film's first teaser. Crazy also because we still have one more month to go?! Yes, this month leading up to Avengers 2 is going to feel like an eternity. We're here to help. Enter: Countdown to Ultron.
It’s a big day for Marvel’s Netflix Daredevil now that early reviews have started pouring in (ahem, wink-wink, nudge-nudge), but not all of the talk has been early praise. The Marvel-ous new drama’s latest trailers have Rosario Dawson bluntly pointing out, “your outfit kind of sucks, by the way.” Well, it’s a work in progress.

In addition to providing motion capture support on Avengers: Age of Ultron, we’ve known for some time that Andy Serkis would also have a live-action part in the film. Serkis’ role in the film has remained mysterious since production began, although it’s been speculated for a while that he’s playing Black Panther villain Ulysses Klaw. You can officially stop speculating now because Serkis himself has delivered confirmation.
Marvel’s Daredevil TV series will kick off the first of Netflix’s Defenders by its April 10 premiere, but between Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Agent Carter and Phase 3 mapped out through the end of time, might any other famous Marvel characters get their live-action due? Daredevil showrunner Steven S. DeKnight hopes to see The Punisher on Netflix someday, in all his rated-R glory.

We presume you know all about Ultron by now. He's big and shiny and angry. But, what of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch? In the trailers and posters we see them fighting alongside both Ultron and The Avengers. Are they good? Bad? Who are these guys?
