GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY

Who loves the Nova Corps? If you raised your hand, you'll love these images of extras on the set of "Guardians of the Galaxy" decked out in the Nova Corps outfits. My favorite part is the guy eating the sandwich -- even defenders of the greater galaxy have to eat!

Opens August 1

AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON

Speaking of new photos, some incredible shots of Hawkeye, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver have surfaced from the "Avengers: Age of Ultron" shoot in Italy. It's the best look at Joss Whedon's take on the characters that fans have had yet.

Also, maybe Ultron is in the photos as well. It certainly looks like Ultron.

Variety spoke with Robert Downey Jr. about what it's like to be Iron Man and his impression of Chris Evans.

"The smart money is you have to look at everybody’s age," the actor told Variety of him returning to play Iron Man over and over again. "I’ll put myself at the top of the list. Sooner or later, they’ve got to start over and get somebody young. I’m not there with them yet. It really is the closest thing to being a beloved contract player with a big old-timey studio that there is right now. When you really think about it at the end of the day, these films are entertainment largely driven by young folks. There is something very honorable about that. I run into kids wearing 'Captain America' masks. My kid believes that Captain America is real."

The actor also characterized "Age of Ultron" as "a very ambitious sequel."

"If you read it, it’s dense, it’s smart," Downey Jr. said. "Joss [Whedon] is a really smart guy. My 2-year-old is crazy about Hawkeye, and I think Jeremy [Renner] has a lot to do with the plot. There’s always so many plates to spin to get these things half-right, and I’m really excited about this one."

DAREDEVIL

While speaking with HitFix at PaleyFest, head of Marvel Television Jeph Loeb revealed that the "Daredevil" Netflix is scheduled to begin shooting in July.

"'Jessica Jones' comes after that," Loeb told HitFix. "And then after that, 'Iron Fist' and then after that 'Luke Cage,' and then that'll culminate in 'The Defenders.'"

AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.

CBR has a report from the "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." PaleyFest panel, where showrunner Maurissa Tancheroen noted the series' first season was largely wrapped.

"We're about to shoot the season finale," Tancharoen said. "It's a long season, everyone's sort of running on fumes at this point, but the fact that we come to work, and are still having a great time together -- we're proud of everyone involved, and we're proud of you guys for showing up and watching the show."

X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

MTV spoke with "X-Men: Days of Future Past" actor Shawn Ashmore about returning to the franchise as Iceman.

"It's amazing. I've been playing Bobby for 13 years," Ashmore told MTV. "This is my fourth movie playing Iceman, so not only is it amazing to come back and interact with the same actors again -- and what a caliber of a group of actors we get to work with, it's amazing -- but also Bryan Singer directed the first two films, he started this journey. He cast a lot of us, which is kind of nice to come back and have that same director. There's a trust and I know how important this movie is to him, so it was really fun to come back. And, you know, just getting to play superheroes again is great."
