Joss Whedon has lined up one whopper of a cast for The Avengers: Age of Ultron, but just like Jell-O, there's always room for Aaron Taylor-Johnson: confirming months of rumors, he's just been added to the lineup for the Avengers sequel, in which he's set to play the speedy mutant known as Quicksilver.

No matter how he's presented, James Spader as the titular murderous robot in Marvel's The Avengers: Age of Ultron seems like brilliant casting -- as he's currently proving in his NBC series The Blacklist, Spader excels at playing queerly creepy, dispassionate bad guys, and his villainous vibe should be perfect for the voice of the frighteningly powerful Avengers adversary.

Escape from Tomorrow
From the moment writer/director Randy Moore revealed the existence of Escape from Tomorrow -- and the surprising fact that he'd somehow managed to shoot the movie inside Disney World without permission from the park -- film fans with a fondness for the off-kilter have been eager for a chance to see it (and resigned to the movie being sued out of existence).

Saoirse Ronan
Thus far, the Star Wars rumor mill hasn't given us a whole lot we can point to in the way of actual confirmed information. Heck, even those early reports about Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, and Carrie Fisher coming back to reprise their roles were clamped down on pretty quickly, and although we're still sure they're true, Disney and director J.J.

If you've been worried that the second movie in Peter Jackson's Hobbit trilogy would skimp on the epic action, feel free to put those fears to rest: MGM has just posted a new extended trailer for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, and it bends over backwards to make it clear that there will be plenty of the high-stakes battles, sweeping vistas, and CGI-enhanced peril that the Lord of the Rings franchise is known for.

Watch: Brand New Trailer For 'The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug' Arrives From Middle Earth – Summer might be over, and the leave may be changing, but that doesn't mean Hollywood has given up entirely on popcorn thrills.

Black Widow
It's still very early going behind the scenes of The Avengers: Age of Ultron, but even if he loves a good filmmaking secret, writer/director Joss Whedon isn't the type to keep everything firmly under wraps, a la J.J. Abrams. So while we wait to see an honest-to-gosh trailer, we can count on gobbling up a few morsels of information about the hotly anticipated Avengers sequel between now and 2015 -- such as the tidbits recently dropped by Whedon and James "Ultron" Spader.
