We have all been excited to see that Robert Downey Jr got twitter. Now, excited to see that the actor is putting it to good use. Fans have been begging for pics from Avengers: Age of Ultron. Today Downey obliged the fans and tweeted his first picture from the set.
The person with Downey in the picture is Jeremy Latcham, who is a producer on the film.

Okay… okay… deep breaths. How is this cross-over possible?! And yet… the rumors have been verified that indeed The Amazing Spiderman 2 will have coda footage featuring X-Men: Days of Future Past in end credits.
According to Yahoo, Sony execs gave Empire Online all the scoop:
“Yes, there is an ‘X-Men’ coda during the closing credits of ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2,’” a studio rep said. “As you know, moviegoers have come to expect a coda on many of their Marvel films, and they’re often disappointed when there isn’t one. We saw this as a win for fans and audiences everywhere as it’s the next Marvel movie out of the gate.”
Empire was among the first outlets to report the inclusion the “X-Men” scene, which features a clutch of mutants working their X-powers in a large-scale battle sequence:
“The scene featured sees Jennifer Lawrence’s Mystique, Lucas Till’s Havok and Evan Jonigkeit’s Toad taking on William Stryker (Josh Helman) and his military men. Without wishing to spoil anything, let’s just say that Mystique once again demonstrates her formidable fighting skills in the brief segment.”
Hmmm… critics who were lucky enough to see early screenings of the Amazing Spiderman 2 said the footage was not there for their viewing pleasure. However, it has been seen by UK viewers were the film has opened already. Just wow… what even… can you all form coherent thoughts because I have none.

Oh how I am so thankful for Yavannauk, precious fan who is dedicated to getting all the amazing photos of Colin Morgan when I cannot and if you click photo credit link above, you can see loads and loads more of photos from the set. So yeah, my chances of crossing the ocean to see him on set right now is impossible, but seeing him thankfully is not — because lookie here at these:
Isn’t he gorgeous… and look at his rising star. We announced yesterday, he was returning to television in the second series/season of The Fall. However, right now, he is on set of the Testament of Youth, a film based upon Vera Brittain’s biography.
Testament of Youth will feature Hayley Atwell, Kit Harington, Emily Watson, Dominic West, Alicia Vikander, Colin Morgan and so many more names you should recognize if you’re an anglophile. It is being produced in conjunction with BBC Films and Heyday Films. The story synopsis on IMDb merely states: A British girl recalls coming of age during World War I.
However, this story is so much more:
Testament of Youth has been acclaimed as a classic for its description of the impact of World War I on the lives of women and the middle-class civilian population of Great Britain. The book shows how the impact extended into the postwar years. It is also considered a classic in feminist literature for its depiction of a woman’s pioneer struggle to forge an independent career in a society only grudgingly tolerant of educated women.
I am so excited about all this news and getting to see the photos coming from this set. Colin Morgan will always remain a favorite of mine from his performance on Doctor Who and Merlin. So much is going on with that Merlin cast too. Have you seen how they’re dispersing all over the silver screen. Woohoo!

Guys, this video has been on repeat and I can’t stop laughing.
Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone have been doing press for their movie The Amazing Spiderman 2 and this – OMG. They dance.
Synopsis: We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead.
It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp.
