Martin Freeman Joins "Captain America: Civil War" Cast
LEGO enthusiast Michael of MGF Customs/Reviews undertook a daunting task: to create custom “upgraded” minifigs based on Avengers: Age of Ultron. It was time-consuming task, but as you can see in the lengthy showcase video below, the results are impressive.
Michael overlooked no detail in creating everyone from Captain America and Black Widow to Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver to Ultron and The Vision. However, for the incredible Hulkbuster figure, he turned to Legohaulic.
Saturday Night Live and host Scarlett Johansson this weekend skewered both the romantic-comedy formula and Marvel Studios with a trailer for Black Widow: Age of Me, a parody that’s probably already fueling a few misguided Hollywood pitch meetings.
Demonstrating that “Marvel gets women,” the imagined solo movie mines every romcom trope for the story of Natasha Romanoff, who tries to juggle an internship at Fashion Weekly, a circle of good friends (including Thor as the stereotypical gay BFF), and a burgeoning romance with … Ultron.
There’s been a lot of Avengers: Age of Ultron promotional material, but there may not be anything quite as distinctive and as capable of holding large amounts of beverages as this Australian souvenir cup, shared by on Instagram by Tim Dillon, Marvel Studios’ executive director of marketing.
Shaped like the iconic Avengers “A,” it’s perfect for grabbing with two hands as you excitedly slurp down Coke Zero while Earth’s Mightiest Heroes attempt to fend off Ultron’s minions.
Those impressive life-size Marvel Cinematic Universe statues will soon be available in North America, for the right price.
Bluefin Distribution has announced an exclusive agreement with Taiwan’s Beast Kingdom Toys to offer a lineup of 1:1-scale fiberglass replicas that includes the Hulkbuster, Hulk, Iron Man Mark XLIII, War Machine and Thor from Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America from Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Iron Man Mark XLII and Iron Patriot from Iron Man 3.
When you’re on a team alongside the likes of Captain America, Iron Man, Thor and the Incredible Hulk, it’s easy to be overshadowed, or even dismissed outright (Cookie Monster got in on that action just this week). But Hawkeye wants us to know he’s just as super as the rest of the Avengers.
Appearing last night on NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, a costumed Jeremy Renner sat down at the piano to belt out a heartfelt, and hilarious, ode to Hawkeye’s many lesser-known superpowers (to the tune of Ed Sheerhan’s “Thinking Out Loud”).
Tony Star can don Hulkbuster armor to go toe to toe with the Incredible Hulk, but what defense do baby nerds have against other green threats, like pureed peas and Brussels sprouts? If you’re this lucky little girl, you have a Hulkbuster highchair.
It’s of course the work of Tim Baker Creations, which we’ve previously spotlighted for the Groot swing and Batmobile stroller. Presented by Super-Fan Builds to Iron Man devotee Natasha Vineyard and her daughter Amelia, the Hulkbuster is made from a high chair reinforced with a steel frame, and sculpted foam.
“I didn’t get to be the world’s greatest cameo actor overnight,” Stan Lee explains. “It took years of hard work.”
And in this new comedy short from Audi, the legendary comics creator turned master of cameo acting passes his knowledge of a new generation, which includes Michael Rooker, Kevin Smith, Tara Reid and Jason Mewes.
Stop-motion LEGO recreations of movie trailers are becoming increasingly popular, but a lo of them are a little rough around the edges. However, that’s certainly not the case with this take on the first trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron by Kevin Ulrich of Brotherhood Workshop. It’s a project that took five months to complete, and it definitely shows.
Knowing a good tie-in when it sees one, Adidas couldn’t pass up a collection inspired by Avengers: Age of Ultron that, of course, includes a Quicksilver sneaker.
The lines of shoes and apparel for children and adults, with the former having their choice of T-shirts, shorts, sneakers and accessories based on the Hulk, Iron Man and Captain America. The kid’s collection will be complemented by running shoes for grownups in four designs, but the star is the silver-green “Quicksilver” Adizero Prime Boost (above), which the company teases will be worn in the Marvel Studios sequel by “an exciting new Avengers character.” Who could that be?
If you’re not satisfied with just one version of the homicidal robot from Avengers: Age of Ultron in your collection, you’re in luck, because Hot Toys has officially unveiled its 1/6th-scale Ultron Mark I.
As both the name and the images suggest, this is the early form of the artificial intelligence glimpsed in the trailers for the Marvel Studios sequel, one cobbled together from pieces of Iron Man and Iron Legion armor, and who knows what else. Reflecting that, the 32.5-centimeter figure is asymmetrical and missing a left hand, with exposed cables and other mechanical details.
The collection features designs based on Marvel’s Avengers by Amy Beth Christenson and Andrew MacLaine, winners of last year’s Her Universe fashion show at SDCC, and includes several dresses and jackets. The designs were inspired by Captain America, Black Widow, Iron Man, Loki and Thor in particular.
Never let it be said that Disney and Marvel Studios don’t know their market. To help promote the release this week of Avengers: Age of Ultron in Italy, they enlist a quartet of soccer stars.
For the promo spot Juventus Football Club’s Andrea Pirlo gets a boost from some custom Stark technology, Arturo Vidal sports an eye patch (and, apparently, moves) like Nick Fury, and Claudio Marchisio slings Captain America’s shield to block Giorgio Chiellini’s kick.
Clearly learning nothing from Avengers: Age of Ultron‘s cautionary tale about technology gone wrong, Comicave Studios has unveiled its 4-foot-tall animatronic Hulkbuster figure. Yes, animatronic.
As you can see in the video of the prototype below, the quarter-scale collectible features armor that automatically opens to reveal Iron Man inside.
Add one more figure to Funko’s Avengers: Age of Ultron Pop! Vinyl series: the Scarlet Witch.
Arriving in August, long after most of the others have debuted, Wanda joins a lineup that so far features Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, the Hulk, Ultron, The Vision, Hawkeye and Black Widow, plus the Marvel Collector Corps-exclusive Hulkbuster.
Now we’re only waiting for Quicksilver, who seems to be taking his time for once …
In the buildup to Avengers: Age of Ultron, Hot Toys has been wowing fans by revealing one movie-accurate collectible figure after another, from Captain America and Ultron Prime to the Incredible Hulk and War Machine. However, the company has been holding back one at least one character, whose introduction in the Marvel Studios sequel is eagerly anticipated: The Vision, as played by Paul Bettany.
This morning, however, Hot Toys unveiled a tantalizing teaser:
