AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON

In a question and answer session posted to Reddit, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige revealed that a number of actors — he wouldn’t specify who — have renewed their contracts with the studio. Feige revealed a few “Age of Ultron” tidbits, so spoilers if you haven’t seen the film yet. He said that he wanted to include Africa in the film in order to set up Wakanda and Black Panther, that he knew Quicksilver would die as early as the filming of the first “Avengers” film, that Scarlet Witch and Vision would share a “moment” and that Loki’s scepter actually contained the Mind Stone. Feige and filmmaker Joss Whedon also revealed that they have always viewed Black Widow and Hawkeye as platonic friends and wanted to make that clearer in “Age of Ultron.”

On the topic of Quiksilver, Feige made it clear that — unlike Agent Coulson — Pietro Maximoff is dead. The Marvel Studios head stressed that there are no plans to bring him back and no retcon or Life Model Decoy in sight.

A new Japanese trailer for “Age of Ultron” has arrived online. The film opens in Japan on July 4.

AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR

CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR

Marvel announced yesterday that production has started on “Captain America: Civil War” in Atlanta’s Pinewood Studios. The film now has a synopsis that teases the film’s central conflict.

“‘Captain America: Civil War’ picks up where ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. 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.”

New additions to the cast include Paul Rudd (Ant-Man), Paul Bettany (Vision) and William Hurt (General “Thunderbolt” Ross). The film will also introduce Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther and include Martin Freeman in an unannounced role. Additionally, Chris Evans (Captain America), Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch), Don Cheadle (War Machine), Anthony Mackie (The Falcon), Sebastian Stan (The Winter Soldier), Emily VanCamp (Sharon Carter/Agent 13) and Frank Grillo (Brock Rumlow/Crossbones) will all appear.

“This will be my last one,” Jackman revealed. “It is my last time… It just felt like it was the right time to do it. And let’s be honest, 17 years. I never thought in a million years it would last, so I’m so grateful to the fans for the opportunity of playing it.”

“I kind of have in my head what we’re going to do in this last one,” he added. “It just feels like this is the perfect way to go out.”
