That’s my takeaway from the new extended TV spot for Avengers: Age of Ultron—they must be playing baseball. This spot features a lot of new footage, including Thor swinging for the fences using his hammer as the bat and Captain America’s shield as the ball. Easily the two coolest moments are when Thor grand-slams Cap’s shield and when Cap chucks his motorcycle into an oncoming truckload of bad guys. Full Story

Chris Evans and Chris Pratt took turns dressing up as their superhero characters in order to visit children’s hospitals, and now RDJ is taking a turn, going in character as Tony Stark to deliver an actual bionic arm to a boy who was born with a only a partial limb. Full Story

Marvel released the second trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron last night and they are doubling down on the creepy renditions of “I’ve Go No Strings”. Put that free Disney songbook to work, dude, but now I will forever be creeped out by Pinocchio. Not that a sentient talking puppet that’s obsessed with other people’s humanity wasn’t already creepy. Full Story

More than at any other, it’s so obvious that the winner has been brought out right before their honour, in the front row. Check him out in the video below, sitting beside two randoms. Full Story

You know when you meet a new friend or a romantic partner and you’re drunk on them and everything is wonderful? You think they’re fantastic and where have they been all your life and then you realize, with a ‘chonk’ in your stomach, that they are about to reveal to you that they are not perfect. Full Story

Mark Ruffalo and Robert Downey Jr were honoured last night at the Britannia Awards in LA. Mark was presented with the Humanitarian Award for his work in advocating for clean water.

Marvel will never be finished with you. Just surrender now, give them all your money, and maybe they’ll let you have every other Thursday for yourself. After yesterday’s bonanza of news, last night during an episode of Agents of SHIELD Marvel aired some new footage from Avengers: Age of Ultron—specifically, they showed (a highly edited version of) the Superhero Clubhouse scene from Comic-Con. Full Story

A couple weeks ago Warner Brothers announced the future of the DC Cinematic Universe during an investor phone call. They dumped a lot of information on us in the least exciting way possible, and by the end of the day I’d heard from multiple sources that the response from Marvel was essentially, “Let’s plan a rock show. Full Story

RDJ has been talking up a potential extension of his contract to play Iron Man, and everyone jumped on the Iron Man 4 grenade, because he made some wiseass comments about Iron Man 4. I didn’t buy that he was in talks for another Iron Man installment, but that he could be extending his deal to make room for a fourth Avengers movie. Full Story

Okay, now that we’ve talked about the Marvel can of worms RDJ has opened up, let’s move on to how delightful RDJ is in general, which is SO DELIGHTFUL. First, there’s his appearance on The Howard Stern Show in which he talked about Sarah Jessica Parker. Stern is pushing, trying to get RDJ to say something click-baity about SJP, but RDJ (if only they stayed together for the combined acronyms!) is too smooth to get suckered. Full Story

But first, Team Downey is on the cover of the new issue of The Hollywood Reporter. It’s a joint interview featuring RDJ and his wife Susan which doesn’t happen too often. But The Judge is a Team Downey production – their first – and they’re doing everything they can right now to make it a major hit so that they can continue to secure studio financing for future projects. Full Story

RDJ covers the new issue of Vanity Fair in advance of the Team Downey release of The Judge. It's a standard RDJ interview, which means he's forthcoming, if not always comprehensible, and generous, and unapologetic without sounding defensive. As always, RDJ speaks openly about his addiction and while I wondered at a point when/if we would ever get to a point where that wouldn't be a story, he is still living with it -- it's a disease, like cancer, like ALS -- so why wouldn't he continue to talk about it? Especially since he believes he's passed it on to his son. Full Story
