Warning, SPOILERS (and such).

Fresh off the heels of their cover reveal, Entertainment Weekly has debuted the first official photos from the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron, including some behind-the-scenes shots. Keep your eyes peeled while looking through them and you’ll notice Don Cheadle makes an appearance. Check them all out below.

Following this morning’s new images from Joss Whedon’s much-anticipated Avengers: Age of Ultron, EW has revealed quite a few details about the plot of the May 1, 2015 release, particularly related to James Spader’s robotic antagonist!

“A lot of times when Ultron starts talking, it’s beautiful,” explains Chris Evans. “It’s really intelligent stuff. He’s out to do the things he wants to do because he’s disgusted with X, Y, and Z. You could probably sit down with Ultron and have a really intelligent conversation. He could blow your mind with his views.”

An unusual foe, Ultron actually wants to bring about world peace. He simply wants to eliminate those most responsible for disrupting it: the human race.

“I know you’re ‘good’ people,” the magazine reveals as part of Ultron’s dialogue to the Avengers, “I know you mean well… but you just didn’t think it through… There is only one path to peace… your extermination.”

The magazine confirms that Ultron’s character begins as one of Tony Stark’s “Iron Legion,” a team of Iron Man-type robots that Stark is using to continue his crime-fighting in his absence. The character also serves as a metaphorical surrogate son to Tony and has elements of his personality.

“It’s not the good version that could’ve come from [Stark’s] intellect and personality,” says Chris Hemsworth. “It’s the bad son.”

“So When Do We Begin?” Thor: The Dark World Trailer.

Opening in theaters on November 8, Thor: The Dark World continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvel’s “Thor” and “Marvel’s The Avengers,” Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos…but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save the world.  “So when do we begin?”

Thanos Gets His Own Comic.


Thanos’ cameo at the end of “Marvel’s The Avengers” was tragically brief, but it’s the start of some beautiful things for the purple-skinned death-worshiper. It’s currently rumored that he’ll have a major role to play in Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” movie, and will appear again in the subsequent “Avengers” sequel. But if that’s far too long for you to wait for your next Thanos fix, never fear: he’s getting his own comic book to help pass the time!

“Hell Yeah” writer Joe Keatinge and “Thor” artist Richard Elson are teaming together for “Thanos: Son of Titan,” a five-issue Marvel Comics miniseries launching in October. According to Keatinge, “Son of Titan” is all about “how Thanos came to be” — the perfect entry point for folks who aren’t already familiar with Thanos’ history at Marvel.

“I don’t go Forrest Gump on it, but aspects of the Marvel Universe have been born that directly turn Thanos into who he is,” Keatinge told USA Today’s Brian Truitt. “He ends up at the point where he’s worshiping Death and destroying universes. How do you get to that head space where you’re like, ‘This is what I want to do with the rest of my life?'”

As for what makes Thanos special, “Son of Titan” editor Stephen Wacker said: “He’s just an evil guy. He wants to rule over things. He wants power. It’s just so over the top and operatic — it’s as if Shakespeare wrote an opera.”
