THE AVENGERS

The official Polish Disney XD YouTube Channel has begun posting short looks at "The Avengers" roster. While most showcase footage already seen, the Black Widow spot has a few new snippets of Scarlet Johansson in action.

Soundgarden has resurfaced to provide a track for "The Avengers." Titled "Live to Rise," the band posted a 22-second clip on YouTube in anticipation of the song's official release on May 1.

Finally, Yahoo! Movies (via Spinoff Online) has posted a slideshow of behind-the-scenes photos featuring the cast and director Joss Whedon in a variety of locations -- including one of Whedon as Captain America.

Directed by Joss Whedon and starring everybody. Opens May 4.

MEN IN BLACK 3

Opens May 25

PROMETHEUS

"Prometheus" keeps on churning out TV spots -- here's the third clipstravaganza courtesy of YouTube user KneeBittenNymphs.

Also, Michael Fassbender spoke with Red Carpet News about his role in Ridley Scott's upcoming film and whether it has any physical ties to the original "Alien" films.

"No, I don't think I did," Fassbender told Red Carpet News. "There are certain elements of the spaceship. There are threads of it there, there's almost an aftersmell of it in the air, there's the essence of it there."

Opens June 8

NINJA TURTLES

Yes, the title is correct. Michael Bay has revealed the "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" remake will now simply be known as "Ninja Turtles." On the Shoot For The Edit forums, Bay commented on Paramount's decision to change the name and how it might affect the film.

"Paramount marketing changed the name," Bay said via forum post. "They made the title simple. The characters you all remember are exactly the same, and yes they still act like teenagers. Everything you remember, why you liked the characters, is in the movie. This script is being developed by two very smart writers, with one of the original creators of Ninja Turtles. They care very much about making this film for the fans. Everyone on this team cares about the fans. Just give them a chance. Jonathan the director, is a major fan of the whole franchise. He's not going to let you down."

Opens Christmas 2013

X-MEN: FIRST CLASS 2

Michael Fassbender spoke with Red Carpet News about the status of the "X-Men: First Class" sequel.

"We're just going to pick up where we left off and you'll have to stay tuned," Fassbender told Red Carpet TV. "I have been chatting about it, just having seen James [McAvoy] for the first time in a long time and we sort of have our own ideas. I've been talking to Simon Kinberg a couple of times when I get the chance to go out to Los Angeles. Some really cool ideas and I think we have a bit more prep time this time around. … I'm really excited and we'll see what happens."

ROBOCOP

While speaking with MTV, "RoboCop" leading man Joel Kinnaman spoke to the changes to the character in the upcoming remake -- including getting to see RoboCop's eyes.

"'RoboCop' is going to be a lot more human," Kinnaman told MTV. "The first movie is one of my favorite movies. I love it. Of course, Verhoeven has that very special tone, and it’s not going to have that tone. It’s a re-imagination of it. There’s a lot of stuff from the original. There are some details and throwbacks, but this version is a much better acting piece, for Alex Murphy and especially when he is RoboCop. It's much more challenging."

Opens August 9, 2013

SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN

Here's a fresh one minute TV spot for "Snow White and the Huntsman" starring Chris Hemsworth and Kristen Stewart (better known as Thor and Bella Swan).

Opens June 21

THE S.H.I.E.L.D. PIZZA SUPPLY CACHE

"The Avengers" has yet another marketing team-up with Red Baron pizza. Although it showcases no new footage, the commercial is mildly entertaining. I wonder if we'll get to see the secret S.H.I.E.L.D. pizza supply button in the film?
