AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON
Empire has an interview with new "Avengers" addition Andy Serkis. The actor behind mo-cap performances like Gollum in Peter Jackson's "Lord of the Rings" and "Hobbit" films revealed that he helped develop Ultron's movement.
"We did some work on Ultron," said Serkis. "On the development of Ultron before James Spader came on board. In terms of movement styles: was he gonna be human-like? Was he going to be robot-like? So we worked with a bunch of different people, from body-popping experts to dancers, to this guy called Neil who's nearly eight feet tall..."
Serkis also talked a bit about Ruffalo's evolving performance as the Hulk. "We gave Mark weights, we had voice projections so he could do his Hulk roar," said Serkis. "On screen we could have a virtual representation of the low-res avatar of The Hulk, so he could come out and feel that sense of scale."
Mail Online has reported that the "Avengers" sequel will shoot for two additional weeks in January at Pinewood Studios in the UK. The articles lists Chris Hemsworth, Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Paul Bettany, Scarlett Johansson and Tom Hiddleston as expected to show up for the additional filming, which is being done to reportedly enhance the film's action scenes.

CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR
I Am Rogue chatted with actor Hugo Weaving and asked the former Red Skull actor about the upcoming "Captain America" sequel. Weaving has been vocal in the past about his lack of a desire to reprise the villainous role, and it doesn't look like anything has changed.
"You never know what might or might not happen," said Weaving. "But my views have not really changed. I certainly have not had any conversations with anyone about that. No change at all on that landscape. I was talking to you about another 'Matrix,' and I doubt that would happen. But there are always circumstances. Certain circumstances do change, and there is always a good reason to revisit or reinvestigate something. It may not be worth following, but it is always good to keep your options open and your mind open. Having said all of that, I have not really changed my opinion about not wanting to do another 'Captain America.' It was fun to do. It was a very great thing to do in many ways, but I suppose my focus is more likely to be elsewhere, but who knows."
Many fans are speculating that the recently cast Daniel Bruhl may play a different iteration of Red Skull in the next "Cap" film.

In other finale news, Vixen Varsity has video and a transcription of Robert Kirkman's appearance on the post-show round-up "Talking Dead" wherein the creator reveals Daryl Dixon to be -- get ready for it -- straight.
"Daryl Dixon is being somewhat asexual on the show," said Kirkman. "He's a very introverted character and I think that's somewhat his appeal. In 'The Walking Dead' letters column in the old comic book that I do, there was a question that made me mention that there was a possibility early on about making Daryl Dixon's character gay and it caused quite a hubbub online. I just wanted to make it clear that the possibility is there and I would've been fine with it, the network would have been fine with it, but we ultimately didn't do that. I can make it official -- Daryl Dixon is actually straight. But coming back in the next half of the season we're going to be introducing a very prominent gay character from the comics that'll be debuting."
