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.

The cast of Avengers: Age of Ultron is already quite large, featuring not only the original superheroes reprising their roles from the first film, but new additions like Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch, and — as confirmed yesterday — Ulysses Klaw. We thought we knew the names of just about everyone involved, but it looks like Joss Whedon’s sequel still has a few casting surprises in store: Linda Cardellini and Julie Delpy have been confirmed for Age of Ultron, but who are they playing?
The appeal of superhero movies goes far beyond comic fans. If people who actually went out and bought comic books every Wednesday were the only ones who paid to see The Avengers, it wouldn’t have made over a billion dollars worldwide. Still, with decades of history behind these characters, even the neophytes can stand to learn a thing or two! With Avengers: Age of Ultron officially one month away, it’s time to dive into the strange history of the robotic menace that gives the sequel its title. You up for some Ultron knowledge?
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.
Like any major motion picture these days, Avengers 2 is set to open on IMAX screens, giving fans a chance to watch Earth’s mightiest heroes battle evil on a screen larger than their house. And like any major motion picture opening in IMAX, attendees at the opening night screenings will be given a special poster to commemorate the occasion. And since Marvel is really good at getting fans hyped up, they’ve gone ahead and created four separate posters.
ScreenCrush’s Comic Strip is a weekly roundup of the hottest superhero movie/TV news items. From Marvel to DC and points in between, if it pertains to costumed comic book heroes, we’re covering it here, bringing you our expert analysis. This week, Batman v Superman spoilers are revealed, the big screen and small screen Suicide Squads butt heads, and Joss Whedon spills his guts on Avengers: Age of Ultron.
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?
Marvel's shared universe model has become the envy of Hollywood producers and the scourge of talent agencies, with their secretive development proving frustrating and fascinating in equal measure. Case in point: Anthony Mackie (AKA, Sam Wilson, the Falcon) now claims that he didn’t even know he was in Avengers: Age of Ultron until he saw his name on the poster.
Is it May 1 yet? That’s a question we’ve been asking for months as we patiently await the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron. And while there is so, so much to be excited about in the upcoming sequel (Ultron! Vision! Hulkbuster!), one of the things that’s most intriguing is the introduction of Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, the super-powered super-twins. The latest Age of Ultron featurette gives them a proper introduction, exploring their powers and personalities.
We heard rumors a while back that Captain Marvel would make her big screen debut in Avengers 2 before getting her own solo film in a few years, but then heard this was no longer the case. Now, according to a source who has been right about this kind of stuff before, Marvel has secretly cast their Carol Danvers and has plans to introduce her very soon.
