Just Added: Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver Posters

Marvel Studios has already released solo posters highlighting the core members of the Avengers, and now Marvel UK’s Twitter unleashed the official posters spotlighting the newcomers to Avengers: Age of Ultron, the Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson).

We see the Witch displaying a bit of her hex power and Quicksilver frozen in mid-stride.

Will the mysterious siblings be friends or foes to Earth’s Mightiest Heroes?

Fans of the comics know how this story played out in four colors, but will director Joss Whedon throw us a curveball? The origin of the twins has already been changed, and they are being introduced to the Avengers in an entirely new way, so who know what will happen?

Avengers: Age of Ultron premieres on May 1.

What Can Break Cap’s Shield?

shieldedThis publicity image of a prop from Avengers: Age of Ultron is very unsettling: What could be powerful enough to break Captain America’s shield?

The legendary shield was created by out of a strange alloy of Vibranium, a rare metal found only in the African country of Wakanda — but more importantly, it’s virtually indestructible. So how does the weapon get cracked like this in the movie?

ultron coverMarvel Studios have decided to put us out of our misery make it even tougher to wait until next summer with a passel of intriguing photos from Avengers: Age of Ultron that reveal the true look of the mean machine and his henchbots for the first time — as well as show off the redesigned costumes of the returning heroes.

Japanese Trailer for ‘Godzilla’ Will Scorch Your Brain!

Could this new international trailer for Gareth EdwardsGodzilla be any more awesome?

The answer is no. No, it could not.

With an amazing cast led by Bryan Cranston, Ken Watanabe, Aaron Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen, I’m hoping the story is as fantastic as the visuals.

Hang in there, folks — May 16 is less than a month away…

Godzilla TV Spots Ups the Tension

I really enjoyed this new TV commercial for the upcoming Godzilla reboot. There’s a lot of drama and tension in what goes unspoken between the characters. You will believe this is happening.

In this movie, Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson are married — unlike the characters they play when they co-star in next year’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, the Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, who are brother and sister.

Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver in Avengers Action!

Thanks to news photo service Getty Images, we now have a boatload of photos depicting the Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver and Hawkeye in action as part of location filming in Aosta, Italy, on March 24. There are a lot of images, so I’ll break them up into galleries.

First, Scarlet Witch (played by Elizabeth Olsen) seems to be using her probability-altering hex power to conjure some sort of spell — doubtless there will be CGI elements inserted in post-production. Her costume may be nothing like its comic book version, but I still like it a lot.

New Trailer! Go, Go, Godzilla!

It’s here! The first official full trailer for Gareth EdwardsGodzilla, which will be released on May 16. 

Watch it, now! Do not wait; do not pass GO; do not collect $200 — just watch this amazing, majestic, awe-inducing trailer!

It’s nice (but weird) to see Bryan Cranston in something other than BREAKING BAD, isn’t it? Too bad there’s only a one-second flash of Elizabeth Olsen, but Aaron (Kick-Ass) Taylor-Johnson gets a good line in. And once again we hear the King of Monsters’ rumbling roar, just as released yesterday.
