We’ve been hearing bits and pieces about various elements of ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron,’ from the origins of Ultron and Vision to who Andy Serkis might be playing in the film. But we haven’t heard a whole lot about what’s up with Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, the super-powered twins teased at the end of ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier.’ What we do know is that they’re going up against the Avengers. What we haven’t known is why…until now. Plus, Marvel has released a bunch of photos from the upcoming sequel, in case you felt like Hulking-out.

Marvel Studios is doing very well. In six years and ten movies, it has avoided both critical and commercial disasters, and frustrated naysayers who hailed the demise of the superhero movie at every step.

So how does Marvel do it, and can they keep doing it?
There’s no denying that 2012 was a strong year for film.

On the heels of the news that Joss Whedon’s ‘The Avengers’ decimated the all-time highest weekend box-office record on Sunday, fans already started looking ahead to what Marvel Studios might have in store for a sequel.
