We Review: Avengers: Age of Ultron

The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is growing at quite a rate, and the latest Avengers film is the eleventh movie in the series and the sequel (of sorts) to the highly successful, hugely acclaimed 2012 Avengers film. In this new story, the Avengers get to go head to head with maniacal robot Ultron. Earth needs saving. Again.

Bruce Lee as Spider-Man?

With the number of superhero movies that we have watched and the ones that are on the way, we all have had our opinions on the casting. What if they cast Leo DiCaprio as Peter Parker or what if they killed the person before they cast Halle Berry as Catwoman?

Anyways while cruising the interweb, looking for “what ifs” on casting, I stumbled on Alex Tuis’ blog. He had some ideas of his own and illustrated his fantasy casting with his digital paintbrush.

Take a look and let us know who you feel should have played your favourite superhero.

I always reserve my opinion on a comic book-to-film transfer only after I have seen the trailer, and FINALLY, Thor is here.

Kenneth Branagh, a strange choice, has brought the Asgaardian god to the screen and from the looks of the trailer, he has stuck to the source material. I honestly didn’t see the thespian actor and director making the cross from Shakespeare to Marvel, but hey if meant Anthony Hopkins playing Odin, so be it. Other notables are Natalie Portman as Jane Foster the love interest and Rene Russo playing Odin’s wife, Frigga.

Small note, this teaser shows a hell of a lot and if you don’t want it spoiled for you, I suggest not clicking play.

THOR stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Hopkins, Rene Russo, Stellan Skarsgard, Jaimie Alexander, Kat Dennings, Ray Stevenson, Josh Dallas, Tadanobu Asano, Idris Elba, Clark Gregg, and Colm Feore & most importantly Mjolnir.

Thor will be in theaters in May 2011.
