Random Bits of News: AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON.

A new still from AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON made its way online today.

It doesn't reveal too much, but it does offer us a better look at Thor, Iron Man, and Captain America.

Here is the official synopsis for AGE OF ULTRON:
Marvel Studios presents “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time. When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to the Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.

Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” stars Robert Downey Jr., who returns as Iron Man, along with Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk.  Together with Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, and with the additional support of Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill, the team must reassemble to defeat James Spader as Ultron, a terrifying technological villain hell-bent on human extinction. Along the way, they confront two mysterious and powerful newcomers, Wanda Maximoff, played by Elizabeth Olsen, and Pietro Maximoff, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and meet an old friend in a new form when Paul Bettany becomes Vision. Written and directed by Joss Whedon and produced by Kevin Feige, Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” is based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series “The Avengers,” first published in 1963. Get set for an action-packed thrill ride when The Avengers return in Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” on May 1, 2015.


And it's looking like the reshoots for ULTRON are officially taking place as Jeremy Renner posted the following today:

It was rumored a few months back that the reshoots were to add more action, some rumors even hinted at the possibility of Benedict Cumberbatch making a cameo in the movie. (I'm leaning more towards the action aspect as Cumberbatch is currently busy shooting Sherlock.) We're not entirely sure what they are shooting, but if you're worried about there being reshoots, don't be. This is normal for Marvel. They actually schedule in time for reshoots on each of their films, ULTRON is no different. Heck, the credit scene from the first AVENGERS movie was shot the night of the premiere.

What do you think they're shooting as part of the rehoots over the next two weeks?
