Avengers: Age of Ultron update now!
Thor Odinson himself, Chris Hemsworth, has revealed when he'll wield Mjolnir as part of the sequel's production.
Scarlett Johansson is expecting, it seems.
While everyone is happy for the mother-to-be, this presents a slight issue for Marvel Studios as Avengers: Age of Ultron preps to begin principal photography in earnest.
Remember how, after The Avengers became a massive hit that seemingly everyone loved, there was a long wait where we all wondered if Joss Whedon would drop the mike and walk off stage rather than write and direct the sequel?
Well we might be spared such a purgatorial wait between Avengers: Age of Ultron and The Avengers 3, because a screenwriter with the inside scoop at Marvel Studios may have just offhandedly revealed Whedon's involvement in the third installment of this mega-franchise.
We haven't seen the last of Trevor Slattery, the booze-soaked, drug-addled actor who nearly stole Iron Man Three out from under Tony Stark.
Ben Kingsley reprises his role as the pseudo-Mandarin in All Hail the King, the latest in Marvel's series of increasingly well-executed One-Shot short films.
Another clip from the new One-Shot has Slattery sliding on the accent that caused so much conversation among fans last year.
Principal photography on Avengers: Age of Ultron has begun earlier than we anticipated, kicking off production in South Africa.
Avengers: Age of Ultron just keeps getting more and more crowded with familiar comic book characters.
The latest addition to the super-sequel's mega-line up is none other than The Vision, an android with a red face and a whole mess of powers. Though this new character is joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the actor playing him has been along for the ride since Iron Man.
As Avengers: Age of Ultron gears up for principal photography, no less a source than Scarlett Johansson is enthusing about Joss Whedon's screenplay for the sequel to the biggest comic book movie of all time.
Katniss Everdeen delivered a kick to the Tony Stark's solar plexus from which no armor, no matter how sophisticated or high-tech, could protect the superhero.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is now the highest-grossing domestic release of 2013, usurping Iron Man 3.
The title of Avengers: Age of Ultron makes it clear just which Marvel heavy will cause Nick Fury to send an "Assemble!" group text to Earth's Mightiest Heroes.
It seems that the mechanical man won't be alone, however, as the identity of a supplemental villain – one with a connection to some Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch – in the Avengers sequel has been revealed.
After sitting out an attempted alien invasion of Earth in The Avengers, Lt. Col. James "Rhodey" Rhodes will stand alongside Earth's Mightiest Heroes in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Don Cheadle is aboard the sequel to play the man inside the War Machine/Iron Patriot armor for the third time.
