Do you want to visit the set of the Avengers: Age of Ultron, as the personal guest of writer and director Joss Whedon?
Yyyyyeah, you probably do. Go get your wallet; it’s for a good cause. Whedon and Marvel are auctioning off the opportunity for one lucky so-and-so (plus guest) to get a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the making of Age of Ultron in London next spring. Proceeds from the auction will benefit LA’s Downtown Women’s Center, a housing and support organization that has been helping out homeless and severely low-income women in downtown Los Angeles since 1978.

While we don’t yet know what Ultron’s origin will be in the upcoming Avengers: Age Of Ultron, one question about the villain was answered this morning, as Marvel announced that James Spader has been cast to play the classic Avengers antagonist.
Parks and Recreation, a show about politics in a small U.S. town, often finds clever ways to parody various topical issues taking place in Washington D.C. Tomorrow’s episode is no different, as this time they’re taking a shot at much debated filibuster reform, and they’ve enlisted the help of Patton Oswalt to do so. Oswalt, playing the role of one of Pawnee’s many
insane passionate citizens, goes on a completely improvised nerd rant in which he recites what he believes should be the plot of the upcoming Star Wars Episode VII, including an aging Luke, Han and Leia crossing over into the Marvel film universe as they team up with the Avengers, Spider-Man, the X-Men and more to take on Thanos. Not all of the Avengers make it into Oswalt’s cut, as he’s replaced “second tier” characters Hawkeye and Black Widow with noted Marvel A-lister Moon Knight. Naturally.
You can see the full video above, and while this is obviously meant to be a joke, let us all pray to our respective deity’s that no executive at Disney ever hears this proposal.
If his Tumblr page is any indication, Iros Yan is a pretty big fan of both the Avengers and the Powerpuff Girls. He’s also fond of combining the two, and a quick look through his Tumblr shows that he’s been creating various comics and illustrations depicting the Avengers in Powerpuff Girls style art for some time. But he may have just outdone himself with a recreation of the Powerpuff Girls opening credits that features Thor, Captain America and Iron Man standing in for Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup.
Here I have drawn the god of thunder, THE MIGHTY THOR!
This is my take on how he looks in his snazzy new “Marvel NOW!” costume.
He looks plenty angry about something though, so perhaps someone made fun of his new costume in spite of how snazzy it looks.
This was colored by the thunderously talented, Joe Hunter!
I included the photos of the original art to show you what it looks like and to let you know that it is for sale in my Etsy store!
Perhaps you’d like it for yourself, or perhaps you have a friend that might enjoy it as some kind of holiday gift!
You can also get a print or a t-shirt or an iPhone case or a pillow with this on it over at my Society6 store!
Don’t believe me? Look at these pictures!
I told you it was on a pillow!
Drawing things is how I make my living, so, if you’d like to buy it that would be awesome, but if you can’t afford it but still want to help me out, your reblogs are VERY appreciated!
