Avengers: Age Of Ultron is out, and as our review stated, it’s a hell of a lot of fun. It doesn’t have the novelty or originality of The Avengers, to be sure, but it progresses Marvel’s overarching narrative pretty effectively. Also, the action and main characters, as always, were incredibly enjoyable.
Marvel Studios has begun production Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War at Pinewood Studios in Atlanta, Georgia. The film has an ambitious arc – ‘after another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.’
Captain America: Civil War will feature appearances by the Avengers cast as well as Ant-Man (Paul Rudd), Agent 13/Sharon Carter (Emily Van Camp), Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), General Thaddeus ‘Thunderbolt’ Ross (William Hurt), Brock Rumlow/Crossbones (Frank Grillo) and as yet to be revealed characters played by Daniel Brühl and Martin Freeman.
Captain America: is set for release on May 16, 2016. For more, follow the jump.
Three years ago, Joss Whedon’s Marvel’s The Avengers blew everyone away by taking a group off characters who should never have been in the same room together and making us believe that they could save the world together. It was fresh and new and shiny.
Avengers: Age of Ultron is not fresh and new and shiny – but it is a fresh look at why these characters should, in fact, be in the same room even as cracks appear in the team that foreshadow less happy things to come.
With only two more sleeps before The Avengers: Age of Ultron is officially released, it might be fun to look at the reactions the cast got while touring the world to meet fans, talk about the movie and spread the Marvel love around.
To that end, follow the jump to get a wee bit of new footage (Fury speaks!) and marvel (yes I went there) at how beloved the Avengers are pretty much everywhere.
