Paul Bettany, who plays The Vision in the upcoming 'Avengers' movie, has been overwhelmed by the size of 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron' set and he's not the only one.
Paul Bettany was shocked with the size and scale of The Avengers: Age of Ultron set. The 43-year-old actor has previously had a role in The Avengers Assemble and the Iron Man trilogy as the voice of Iron Man's computer JARVIS but he plays the villain, The Vision, in the upcoming Avengers film.

They've fought private military corporations, Nazi splinter-groups and a Norse god. Now, The Avengers assemble once again to celebrate their success. But when a new project from Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) reveals itself to be sentient and ready to bring the world to its knees, The Avengers are ready to fight amongst themselves while the threat of Ultron (James Spader) grows his strength, and gains allegiance from Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and the Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen). Meanwhile, Stark is seeing hostility from Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and The Incredible Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) while Captain America (Chris Evans) desperately tries to bring the team back together to stop the Age of Ultron.

'The Imitation Game' and 'The Theory Of Everything' stars among the 26th annual festival's honourees.
The 2015 Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards saw accolades going to some very well-deserved movies from the last year - with some even more well-deserved individuals picking them up.

Unsurprisingly, the Ensemble Cast Award went to the actors from 'The Imitation Game'; a movie depicting the era-defining career of codebreaker Alan Turing during World War II and his subsequent arrest for being homosexual. It stars Benedict Cumberbatch in the lead role, with the likes of Allen Leech, Matthew Beard and Alex Lawther - the latter of whom plays Turing's younger self. Directed by the BAFTA nominated Morten Tyldum, the movie has already been nominated for five Golden Globes, and it definitely looks to be in line for an Academy Award.

A lot has happened since the Battle of New York. The world was attacked by Norse God, Loki (Tom Hiddleston), causing a united force of tech super-hero Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr), reanimated World War Two super soldier Captain America (Chris Evans) and Loki's brother - the Norse God of thunder, Thor (Chris Hemsworth). Two years on, the Avengers have worked to defeat evil in Godly realm of Asgard, on planet Earth, and within S.H.I.E.L.D., the organisation that brought them together in the first place. Now, with Iron Man in retirement and S.H.I.E.L.D. in disarray, the world is suddenly threatened by Ultron (James Spader), a robot who seeks to destroy the Avengers now that he has been unshackled.

'Avengers: Age of Ultron' trailer has leaked a week earlier - but what does it tell us?
The first trailer for The Avengers: Age of Ultron - likely to be one of the biggest grossing movies of all time - has been leaked online a week before its intended preview on TV. The clip was supposed to air during the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D television series but made its way online on Wednesday (October 22, 2014).
Is Iron Man sacrificing himself for Paul Bettany's character Vision?
The source of the leak is unclear, though Marvel appeared to do the smart thing and after making light of the situation on Twitter ("Dammit, Hydra), they released a HD version.

This generational drama strains so hard to be serious that it's almost laughable. Its big themes are only superficially addressed, while the bloated nearly two and a half hour running time could easily have been cut down simply by eliminating all of the emotive close-ups of actors with tears welling in their eyes. In other words, while there are the bare bones of a decent movie in here, it's been badly compromised to turn it into Oscar bait.
At least it starts well, with a sequence centred on Hank (Robert Downey Jr), a slick Chicago lawyer with a precocious daughter (Emma Tremblay) and an angry trophy wife (Sarah Lancaster) who has had enough. Hank's cold-hearted ways are a legacy of his estranged relationship with his father Joseph (Robert Duvall), the no-nonsense judge in a small-town Indiana town. Then Hank is called home when his mother dies, comforting his brothers Glen (Vincent D'Onofrio), whose injured hand ended his baseball career, and Dale (Jeremy Strong), who is mentally challenged. He also rekindles his youthful romance with waitress Sam (Vera Farmiga). Then Joseph is arrested for murder, and Hank steps in to help inexperienced lawyer CP (Dax Shepard) defend him against the shark-like prosecutor (Billy Bob Thornton).
There isn't a single subtle element in this film, as the script is carefully constructed to pull our sympathies back and forth even though both Hank and Joseph are deeply unlikeable grumps. Downey and Duvall are good enough actors to make them watchable, but director David Dobkin (The Change-up) hammers every sentimental scene home with far too much force. And the script is so simplistic that it chickens out before anything interesting happens. Even the court case lacks something compelling to draw the audience in. It certainly doesn't help that the characters are all deeply contrived. Just one example: there's a disability for each of the three brothers: physical, emotional and mental.

The 49 year-old actor is allegedly close to signing a deal that will see him portray Tony Stark in the next 'Captain America' instalment.
It appears that two of the Avengers will be collaborating outside of the rest of their fellow superheroes as Robert Downey Jr. will be reportedly bringing Iron Man to the set of 'Captain America 3.'
Could 'Iron Man' be crossing over to the 'Captain America' franchise?
According to Variety, the 49 year-old actor who has given life to billionaire Tony Stark is in final negotiations to join the cast of the yet-untitled third instalment that follows Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), which is slated for a release date of May 6, 2016.

Robert Downey Jr has finally confirmed he is in negotiations to reprise his role as Tony Stark in 'Iron Man 4'.
It looks as though Robert Downey Jr can't resist the megabucks after all. Actually, we already knew that, but for a moment there the actor actually had us believe that he might not make Iron Man 4.

Despite denying a fourth 'Iron Man' movie is in the works, the 49 year-old will reprise the superhero role once again if his good pal Mel Gibson takes the helm.
Marvel should listen closely to one of their 'Avengers'! The star of the 'Iron Man' franchise Robert Downey Jr. recently revealed that he is open to play Tony Starks one more time if his good friend Mel Gibson can direct the fourth instalment.
Downey would rerpise the role of 'Iron Man' if Gibson would direct a fourth film
Gibson has been one of Hollywood's biggest movie stars for the past three decades, but his career took a turn for the worse in 2006 when he shouted anti-Semitic remarks to a police officer who apprehended him during a DUI arrest.

The ‘Avengers’ actor thinks his friend deserves another chance from Hollywood.
Any Iron Man fans who might have had an emotional meltdown over the prospect of Robert Downey Jr not returning for a fourth movie can now dry their eyes, as it seems a compromise may have be found. The only problem is, that compromise involves Marvel allowing troubled actor Mel Gibson to step behind the camera.
Robert Downey Jr has said there are no plans for a fourth Iron Man movie
In an interview with Deadline, Downey was asked wether he thought the actor (who directed him in 2003’s The Singing Detective) should be able to star and direct major Hollywood films again. “He’s a fundamentally different guy,” began Downey.

The 49 year-old actor nearly destroyed his movie career due to issues with drugs and alcohol.
Robert Downey Jr. may be one of Hollywood's most likeable personalities today, but there was a time when the 49 year-old actor was anything but the 'Iron Man,' and more worrying it seems his oldest son is following in his footsteps.
Downey struggled with addiction throughout his acting career
Downey's career may appear hugely successful, but the majority of his time in the limelight has been plagued by issues with drug and alcohol abuse, which evenly landed him in Jail, and he opens up about these struggling times in a new Vanity Fair cover story.

Robert Downey Jr has extinguished speculation of 'Iron Man 4', while laughing off any suggestion that he would be the one to decide who plays Tony Stark next.
Given Marvel's recent success with Guardians of the Galaxy, a string of release date announcements and Robert Downey Jr's recent publicity jaunt, it probably comes as a both a surprise and disappointment that - according to Tony Stark himself - the studio has no plans for Iron Man 4.

Has Tony Stark already had his last standalone movie?
Marvel fans may be disappointed with Robert Downey Jr.'s recent revelation. It seems Tony Stark will only be seen as one of the 'Avengers' for the foreseeable future as the 49 year-old actor recently claimed a fourth 'Iron Man' film isn't happening.

Robert Downey Jr ditches the special effects for a good old fashioned family drama, but how did the Toronto critics receive ‘The Judge’?
Starring Robert Downey Jr and Robert Duvall as a dysfunctional father son duo, The Judge had its premiere at the Toronto Film festival on Friday (September 5th). While the film’s impressive leads might have been enough for some to generate ‘Oscar buzz’, the critics have been left a little underwhelmed by Downey’s latest offering. Could it be that Robert Downey Jr just packs too much punch for a small town family drama?
Robert Downey Jr star in TheJudge alongside Robert Duvall
Since becoming Iron Man, Robert Downey Jr has reinvented himself as the quintessential action hero. We’re now so used to seeing him surrounded by special effects in the sleek environment of Stark Industries, that it’s hard to imagine him in any other setting. But in The Judge Downey is transported to small town Indiana as a big city lawyer who’s forced to return home after the death of his mother. Along with his mother’s passing, Downey’s Hank must also detail with his judge father and their complicated relationship which becomes more strained after his dad is accused of a hit and run.

Just when we thought the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge couldn't get any better (we honestly thought the swearing toddler topped them all!), an unlikely group of people have decided to take it on over in Ireland; they would be none other than Redemptoristine Sisters of Dublin.

In the latest viral Ice Bucket Challenge to hit the web, a group of six nuns dressed in their traditional habits and red robes drench each other in icy water after hearing about the hugely popular charity internet craze which was set up to raise money for the ALS Association. Now it seems LITERALLY everybody has done it.

David Dobkin's movie 'The Judge' is the opener at Toronto Film Festival - a slot not traditionally associated with high quality.
David Dobkin, the filmmaker best known for his classic comedy Wedding Crashers, brings an altogether different film to the Toronto Film Festival this week. His legal drama The Judge, starring Robert Downey Jr and Robert Duvall, opens this year's festival on Thursday (August 4, 2014).
Robert Downey Jr [L] and Robert Duvall [R] in 'The Judge'
"I hadn't had an opportunity to really dig in and do something like this in 20 years," Dobkin told the Canadian Press of his foray into drama. "There are a lot of intense scenes in the movie. You would think that comedies are more fun to work on and they're not always as fun as they come out. This movie was strangely cathartic."

If Robert Downey Jr says 'Guardians of the Galaxy' is the finest Marvel movie ever, then 'Guardians of the Galaxy' is the finest Marvel movie ever.
And so it's official. It must be. Iron Man said it. Yep, that's right: Robert Downey Jr himself has proclaimed Guardians of the Galaxy to be the finest Marvel movie of them all. The actor was speaking at the world premiere of his new movie The Judge, at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Robert Downey Jr [L] stars in 'The Judge'
Downey pretty much single-handedly injected some dynamism into the Marvel movie brand, playing Tony Stark/Iron Man so effortlessly and there's likely to be further movies on the horizon (not to mention Avengers 2). However, the 49-year-old has the upmost admiration for Guardians, which will undoubtedly become its own mega-franchise.

The Gravity star emerged as top of Hollywood's female earners, but just how did she reach this accolade?
The results of Forbes annual celebrity rich list are in and it is with a certain amount of surprise thatSandra Bullockwas the highest paid film star of the past year. Bullock raked in over $51 million (that just over £30 million) and it seems that the 50 year-old has made some very shrewd decisions over the past years over which films she attached her name to, and not all of them looked like sure-fire box-office smashes, on paper at least.
Sandra's box-office success has exerted a gravitational pull on all cash in her vicinity.
Gravity, directed by Alfonso Cuaron and also starring George Clooney, cost a whopping $100 million to produce thanks to its almost exclusive reliance on extensive special effects. Yet the film excelled with audiences and critics alike, scooping seven Oscars as well as a host of BAFTA’s. Bullock also duly received an Oscar nomination for her role as the astronaut caught in a potentially catastrophic disaster in Earth’s orbit. Gravity drew $716 million in global box-office takings, awarding Bullock and co-star Clooney a tidy sum for their efforts which included a gruelling shooting experience whereupon the leading duo were suspended from wires and trapped in claustrophobic space suits.

Which films were on the brink of a completely different lead star?
With Robert Downey Jr fitting so perfectly as likeable irritant Tony Stark, Christian Bale slipping so easily into the tortured billionaire psyche of Bruce Wayne and Daniel Day-Lewis transforming himself into the epitome of Abraham Lincoln, it's hard to believe that for all of the above roles, there were some serious previous contenders. But contenders there were and some of the not entirely savoury.
Tom Cruise as Iron Man
The pint-sized action hero made it his mission impossible to kick ass as IMF agent, Ethan Hunt, but could he have romanced Pepper Potts in quite the same way as Robert Downey Jr's Iron Man? It seems like we very nearly found out with Cruise at one point in serious contention to play the arrogant but entertaining genius.

Sorry, Marvel nerds, no Dr. Strange news for you. But here's a bunch of other stuff!
No one is surprised that Marvel had big things prepared for their Comic-Con panel, after all it’s the biggest industry event of the year. Those, who missed out on a seat in Hall H, however, won’t have to wait long for the recaps and news leaks to start pouring in, not including (unfortunately) the long awaited announcement of the actor cast to play Dr. Strange in the upcoming film, HitFix reports.
RDJ won't be the (only) star of the show this time.
The panel, which featured the longest superhero lineup of any event ever (we’re guessing here) included Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Cobie Smulders (Maria Hill), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Mark Ruffalo (Hulk), Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Quicksilver), Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch), Paul Bettany (Vision), James Spader, who will be introduced as Ultron in Avengers: Age of Ultron and Josh Brolin, who was announced as the voice of Thanos. And breathe.

If Robert Downey Jr is out of Iron Man 4, is Colin Farrell good enough to be in?
Rumors are abound that seminal Iron Man actor, Robert Downey Jr, will not be returning for a fourth instalment as the man in the super strong suit. Whether this is Downey Jr related because he’s become too expensive for the role or Tony Stark related and the character is actually killed off in Avengers: Age of Ultron is uncertain.
Colin Farrell as Tony Stark? [Getty/Frazer Harrison]
Whatever the reason, Colin Farrell’s name has been put in the replacement frame and it seems Iron Man as a rolling character with different actors is not a new thought to the studios.

Marvel Studios announces yet another movie release date without actually telling us what it is.
Last week Marvel studios took the unusual step of announcing five upcoming movie release dates stretching into 2019 without actually announcing what movies they would be. Now they’ve added another date for that schedule: May 4th 2018.
Robert Downey Jr, pictured here with wife Susan, is unsure of his future role with the Iron Man films
Presumably this has been made possible because of the recent news that Sony has pushed back the release date of The Amazing Spiderman 3. The projected Amazing Spiderman 4 movie had been due to be released on May 4th 2018, but obviously that date has now become available.

Robert Downey Jr is ready for 'Iron Man 4' - providing Marvel have the cash.
We've been reporting on the chances of Robert Downey Jr returning for Iron Man 4 all week, and, despite some speculation that Colin Farrell is waiting in the wings to take up the role of Tony Stark, it seems Downey Jr is going nowhere - providing Marvel has (a) a decent script and (b) a fat wallet. We know it has at least one of these.

The actor hinted at the necessity for both during an interview with Entertainment Weekly this week (but mainly money).

Until recently, Robert Downey Jr.'s place as Iron Man was unshakable. Not anymore.
You know who he is. Robert Downey Jr.’s involvement in the Iron Man franchise has been kept tightly under wraps ever since speculation first started that he may not be returning for the fourth movie. Iron Man without RDJ? Impossible! Preposterous! And not completely out of the question. If Downey knows anything for sure, he didn’t let it slip during his chat with Entertainment Weekly on the set of Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Tony Stark is Iron Man. But what about RDJ?
“It’s down to Kevin [Feige, Marvel Studios president] and Ike [Perlmutter, CEO of Marvel Entertainment] and Disney to come to us with what the proposal is, and that’s on us to agree or disagree,” Downey said. “When things are going great, there’s a lot of agreement.”
Continue reading: Robert Downey Jr.IS Iron Man... But For How Long?
The franchise is likely to roll on with or without Downey Jr.
If you can be sure of one thing, it’s that Marvel will keep putting out Iron Man films until we stop paying to see them. You can also be sure that Robert Downey Jr. will be demanding lucrative pay structure to return to the franchise.
Robert Downey Jr. shooting Iron Man 3
The actor, who played Tony Stark and his iron-clad alter-ego for the first three films to both critical acclaim and fiscal success, was named as the highest earning actor working in Hollywood by Forbes for the second year running, and a huge part of that was down to his work on Iron Man 3, which grossed $1.2b from the global box office.

But who made the top 5?
Robert Downey Jr. is the highest paid actor in Hollywood for a second year running, Forbes has announced, putting Iron Man star top of the list with earnings totalling around $75 million. It is his involvement with the Marvel franchise that boosts his position to pole – the movie bagged around $1.2b when it was released last May and comprises the bulk of his counted earnings.

Given Iron Man’s heavy involvement with the Avengers team – the highest grossing single film in the entirety of the company’s output – Downey Jr. presence in the upcoming instalment, Age of Ultron, means he’ll be ‘there or there abouts’ for a few years to come, we’d predict.

Robert Downey Jr. has topped Forbes Magazine's annual list of Top Earners in Hollywood for the second year in a row.
With an estimated income of $75 million between June 2013 and June 2014, Downey Jr. shows that he's somewhat similar to his onscreen counterpart, billionaire superhero Tony Stark. 2014 has actually been a fairly quiet year for Downey Jr. considering there is no Marvel blockbuster hitting our screens (featuring him, at any rate) but he still managed to maintain his spot at the top.
It's been another great year for Robert Downey Jr.

The 49 year-old actor, who has famously battled his own drug abuse issues, will offer a lot of "support and understanding" to his son, who was arrested for possessing cocaine on Sunday.
The 20 year-old son of Robert Downey Jr, Indio Falconer Downey, has now been released on bail after being arrested for cocaine possession on Sunday (June 29th).

The actor himself has dealt with drug addiction; now his son has been caught.
Robert Downey Jr. has issued a sensible and understanding public statement after his son, Indio Falconer Downey, was arrested for cocaine possession. The 20 year-old was apprehended from a car after a traffic stop where he was spotted smoking a pipe, according to TMZ.
Sgt. Arballo of the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department confirms that police officers pulled the car and arrested Indio then charged him with possession of cocaine and drug paraphernalia around 2pm on Sunday afternoon (29th June). Indio was taken to jail but was released shortly after midnight after posting $10,000 bail.
Downey Jr. has struggled with heroin and cocaine addiction in the past but has reportedly been clean since successfully completing a court-ordered stint in rehab in 2002. Instead of refusing to speak to press on the matter as many embarrassed parents might, the actor issued a statement that illustrates his solidarity with his son as well as his understanding of drug abuse.
