- Turns out that Ultron isn’t the only villain in Avengers Age of Ultron. Actor Thomas Kretschman has joined the cast as crazy German bastard Baron Von Strucker.

Either way, expect something Hydra in Age of Ultron.
- In very bumming news, Russell Johnson, the Professor from Gilligan’s Island passed away today at the age of 89.

- Roberto Orci drops some answers to Sony’s plans for Sinister Six and Venom, and what’s in store for The Amazing Spider-Man 2-3. I’m actually hoping we get Agent Venom the film at this point.
- Hey, remember those Wonder Twin movie posters? Wait for it… Turns out it was a hoax... I have one word for that.

- Livio Ramondelli’s masterpiece of an Ed-209
