Slowly, but surely, the May 1st release date for Marvel’s next ‘Avengers’ film draws ever-nearer, and the film studio is hell-bent on keeping the hype going with its latest trailer. If you’ve been paying attention the trailers leading up to this, some of the details are going to sound a little familiar. Ultron, voiced and motion-captured by James Spader, raids the Avengers’ Tower with a squad of Ultron drones warning Tony Stark that “Everyone creates the thing they dread.”

Of course, there are lots of Chris Evans glamor shots and a few glimpses of Mark Ruffalo chewing up the scenery, but the most interesting tidbits in this trailer happen at the 0:32 and 0:53 second marks. We’re briefly given a glimpse of a muscular black woman with a shaved head along and a much clearer shot of Andy Serkis, who is rumored to play Ulysses Klaw, arch nemesis of the Black Panther.

Who the black woman is exactly isn’t clear, though her hairstyle and build hint at the possibility of her being one of the Dora Milaje the Black Panther’s sister. Naturally, this is all speculation, but 'Age of Ultron' would be the ideal time to begin setting up characters for Marvel’s recently announced 'Black Panther' film.

Gay Films, Star Power, and Oscar Buzz: a Report from the Toronto International Film Festival

Eddie Redmayne got a huge thumbs up in Toronto. Oscar-bound?


Hello all. Just back from Canada from the Toronto International Film Festival, aka the best film festival in the world, which wrapped up on Sunday. My fellow Oscar bloggers like to shill for Telluride these days but I’m convinced it’s simply Stockholm Syndrome since Telluride actually makes the press pay hundreds and hundreds of dollars for a pass for the privilege of giving them free publicity. In Toronto, if you’re lucky enough to write about the movies for a living, you get your press pass for free and your only expense, other than travel and lodging (which can add up) is your time. But what person who loves movies, wouldn’t want to spend that gorging on selections from all over the world, the best of Cannes and Sundance and a ton of new ones, some of them courting Oscar gold, too.

I was so giddy all week that even when I failed to spot Reese Witherspoon at her own party for WILD (she’s short, y’all and thus hides easily in a crowd even in a sparkly dress) I remained elated to chat with Laura Dern (one of the greats who needs big roles again!) and wonder what possessed Chris Evans to what looked like gloriously form-fitting white longjohn shirt to a party where everyone else was in suits. I’m not complaining, I’m just saying. I was so thrilled that even the sight of Eddie Redmayne’s back in his daring aquamarine suit and Andrew Garfield’s giant beard at THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING party was as good as actually talking to them, but I made do with talking to Oscar-buzzing Felicity Jones who, like Redmayne, gives her best screen performance yet in that new Stephen Hawking biopic.

A Supercut Of Chris Evans' Shirtless Scenes: VIDEO


Hunky actor, model and LGBT ally Chris Evans, who scored big in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, thankfully threw out his ill-advised “shirtless ban” giving us the chance to enjoy a super-cut of his many shirtless movie scenes before and since the ban.

Sadly, the 60-second super cut doesn’t include every instance of Evans shirtless, but we’ll still enjoy it. Also weirdly enough, it turns out Chris has a special kind of stand-in — we didn’t figure he’d need one.

Watch the video AFTER THE JUMP...

Actor Scott Evans Arrested in Alleged Undercover Drug Bust

Actor Scott Evans was arrested last night for attempting to make a purchase from an undercover cop, TMZ reports:

Oltl1Law enforcement sources tell us Evans was arrested Tuesday evening when he tried to score narcotics from an LAPD officer posing as a dealer. Evans -- who played Officer Oliver Fish on "One Life to Live" a few years back -- was booked at 6:15PM for attempt to possess a controlled substance ... a felony. He bailed out around 12:30AM.

It's unclear what drug Evans was trying to buy.

Evans reacted to the bust with a Facebook post early this morning: "Most ridiculous night of my life in LA so far. At least I made it a year before getting arrested."

Evans is the gay younger brother of actor Chris Evans.
