Michael Douglas is having a rough day. In an interview at EW‘s Comic-Con Hideout, the Ant-Man star confessed that he was experiencing gas and was “f–king melting.” No one said Comic-Con was easy.

Despite Douglas’ struggles, the cast was happy to tell EW as much as they could about the upcoming Marvel movie—which isn’t too much. But it did come to light that Evangeline Lilly is having a hard time playing dumb when people ask her about the movie and that Paul Rudd has a tie clip—just don’t ask him about it; he might get self-conscious.

Quentin Tarantino says 'The Hateful Eight' is on the way after all

Quentin Tarantino’s post-Civil War western The Hateful Eight will be a film after all.

After Gawker leaked pages from The Hateful Eight screenplay back in January, Tarantino filed a lawsuit against the media company and said he wouldn’t be turning the script into a movie because of the leak. He later amended that statement though, telling a crowd at a The Hateful Eight reading in April that he was actually working on new draft of the script. And Sunday, he announced at a Comic-Con panel that the movie is a go, Deadline reports.

'Mad Max: Fury Road' director George Miller wary of using 'too much CG'

SDCC-VIDEO-GEORGE-MILLER.jpg

Director George Miller has quite the variety of movies under his belt: His film credits include the family-friendly Happy Feet and Babe: Pig in the City as well as the cruder Mad Max trilogy. Now, the Australian filmmaker is visiting Comic-Con for the very first time to promote the fourth in the Mad Max series, Mad Max: Fury Road starring Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron.

Miller stopped by EW’s Comic-Con Hideout to explain why Mad Max: Fury Road is “basically a western on wheels,” his action movie inspirations, and why you won’t be seeing much CGI in his latest film.

Marvel Studios: Comic-Con Live-Blog: 'Ant-Man,' 'Ultron,' and 'Guardians 2'

Ten minutes after the grand finale of Comic-Con is supposed to start in the 6,100-seat Hall H, a chant begins: “We want Marvel! We want Marvel! We want Marvel!”

They got what was coming to them.

The lights went down soon after, and the panel began with a reel of highlights from all the past Marvel movies, leading into a new trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy (which comes out next Friday.) It ends with a long look at Josh Brolin as the cosmic villain Thanos in a throne that is free-floating in space.

“It always starts with you guys in this room,” said Kevin Feige, chief of Marvel Studios, as he took the stage. “What we’re going to talk about today is 2015. We have a movie called Avengers: Age of Ultron coming out. Then we have something new—Ant-Man is finally coming out.” READ FULL STORY

James Spader reveals why his 'Avengers 2' character hates the Avengers

SDCC-VIDEO-AVENGERS-02.jpg

Now that we know who Ultron is, it’s time to get into his head a little bit.

James Spader came by the EW Hideout at Comic-Con along with his co-stars Chris Hemsworth and Chris Evans to talk about the big bad of Avengers: Age of Ultron. Spader talked about the character’s motivations with a calm that unnerved Chris Evans—if Ultron’s voice is anything like Spader’s here, the robot that comes to destroy us all next summer will probably convince us all that his evil plot is good for us.

Watch the video and read a full transcript below.

EW: James Spader, you’re joining the franchise as the titular Ultron character, tell us a little bit about him. He seems like he’s a guy who may come into contention with the Avengers at some point.

James Spader: Yeah, I think he sees the Avengers as being part of a problem, a more comprehensive problem in the world. I don’t know, he sees the world from a very strange point of view because he’s brand new, he’s very young.  He’s been self-created during the first act of the film, and then he—he sees the world around him from a very biblical point of view. Because he’s been able to upload an enormous amount of intelligence and so on, and that’s also been fed into him as well.

So he’s immature, and yet has knowledge of comprehensive, broad history and precedent, and he has created in a very short period of time a rather skewed worldview. Which is certainly not unprecedented! He’s probably self-absorbed.

Chris Evans: It’s so great hearing James talk right now. I can just see Ultron and I get scared! [Laughs]

EW: Both of the Chris’s, you guys are coming off of your own movies now. Chris Hemsworth, Thor: The Dark World ended with Thor deciding he’s going all-Earth, all the time now. Where’s Thor at when we find him in Avengers 2?

Chris Hemsworth: He’s here, part of the team, where we left him in Thor 2. The first film, the first Avengers, was all of this coming together. Now it’s them operating as a team and trying to function and keep it going.

EW: Now are they sending Jane to an island again?

CE: [Laughs] You ever wonder how they figure out ‘Well why didn’t you call Thor?’ He’s busy!

CH: [Laughs] That’s the problem in every film we have! There’s a massive battle, the world’s at stake—but where’s Captain America and Iron Man and The Hulk when Thor’s on it?

CE: Don’t pick up the cell phone!

EW: I think it’s implied they’re kind of feuding at that point. Chris Evans, Captain America: The Winter Soldier—Captain America went through a lot in that film, and I believe he has a new costume in this one.

CE: [singing] Yeah, they always do the new costumes. It’s too bad, because I really liked the old costume.

EW: Where is he at now, in terms of his development? Winter Soldier had a lot of revelations for him.

CE: Well he’s a guy who—he’s a soldier. So he’s born into a world of orders and structure, and he likes being kind of a cog. So once S.H.I.E.L.D was kind of destroyed, he’s looking for structure. And now that the Avengers don’t really report to anyone, they report to each other, it’s a different dynamic for him and he’s trying to figure out where he fits in that.

EW: Will there ever be a leader of the Avengers?

CE: Well you’ll just have to wait and see the movie!

JS: Everything you’re talking about is exactly the problem that Ultron perceives, these are all the issues he has [laughs]

EW: So you’re saying Ultron is the hero of the movie?

JS: I certainly play it that way!

 

Legendary brings King Kong, Mothra, and del Toro's ghosts to Comic-Con

After a sweltering few days in San Diego, Legendary Pictures offered up some chills in the form of Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak, wedged in between the revelation of some Godzilla 2 monsters and footage teasing a new King Kong movie called Skull Island.

20th Century Fox Comic-Con panel: Colin Firth kicks butt in 'Kingsman'

20th Century Fox took control of Hall H for two hours on Friday to unveil some of their upcoming films. The big surprise? No talk of (or footage shown from) next summer’s Fantastic Four or of X-Men: Apocalypse. But there were plenty of other highlights:

- During the panel for September’s The Maze Runner, star Dylan O’Brien (Teen Wolf) accidentally revealed that a certain character dies in the film after he was asked what was the most difficult scene to shoot. “This is going horribly,” he (sorta) joked later. Fans also got a look at a new trailer for the film and a thrilling sequence introducing viewers to Runner‘s main villains called Grievers, who sort of resemble a giant spider with robotic arms.

- October’s The Book of Life is a vibrant animated film produced by Guillermo del Toro and featuring the voices of Channing Tatum, Ron Perlman, Christina Applegate and Zoe Saldana. But it was a different voice that stole the show in Hall H: rapper Biz Markie showed up to perform his classic “Just a Friend,” which is used in Life.

- In a message taped on the South African set of Homeland, Rupert Friend introduced the first trailer for Hitman: Agent 47.

- Meanwhile, Jake Johnson missed the panel for Let’s Be Cops but taped a comedic message from New Orleans where he’s shooting Jurassic World.

*The biggest highlight of the 20th panel was probably Kingsman: The Secret Service starring Colin Firth and Samuel L. Jackson. The pair were both in attendance and were featured in two lengthy clips that tease what looks to be a really fun spy movie (Jackson’s evil villain speaks with a lisp and Firth’s character has a weaponized umbrella). Director Matthew Vaughn taped a message from the UK along with Star Wars‘ Mark Hamill who appears in the film as well.

'Bates Motel' actress Olivia Cooke debuts shaved head at Comic-Con

Like Olivia Cooke’s new look?

The 20-year-old actress, best known for playing Norman Bates’ pal Emma on A&E’s Bates Motel, has shaved her head for her next role—one of the title parts in the upcoming film Me & Earl & the Dying Girl, an adaptation of Jesse Andrews’ YA novel.

Will Arnett and Megan Fox weigh in on why the fifth Ninja Turtle left

TMNT.jpg

Sometimes, playing the humans in a world full of crime-fighting turtles is pretty cool. At least, that’s the impression Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles stars Will Arnett and Megan Fox gave when they stopped by EW‘s Comic-Con video hangout. Chatting with Darren Franich, they discussed the sometimes-forgotten fifth turtle, Venus, and the real-life actors who played the Turtles during filming. Fox also dropped a line about April’s yellow jumpsuit, which didn’t make the film and perhaps is part of the “girl power” that she said largely hit the cutting room floor.

Jeff Bridges talks filming 'The Giver' with his dad 20 years ago

The-Giver-video.jpg

Jeff Bridges is a really big fan of The Giver—so much so that he once filmed his own adaptation of the book, starring his dad, Llyod Bridges, as the title character and Bud Cort as the narrator. Bridges joked that if he ever found that tape, “it would be a good auxiliary thing on the DVD.”

Bridges told the tale of the “first” Giver movie Thursday, when he dropped by EW’s hideout at Comic-Con—along with Giver author Lois Lowry and Brenton Thwaites and Odeya Rush, who star in the film adaptation coming to theaters this August. The group talks about the history of the film’s production—which started before Rush was even alive—as well as the challenges of taking on iconic roles and living up to fan expectations.
