This week was a huge week for the fantasy, scifi, and horror genres, with Marvel again dominating the news, with an announcement of the actor playing Ultron in Avengers 2 and lots of new Guardians of the Galaxy information. However, this week’s biggest story goes to Joss Whedon’s discussion of whether or not he’ll be killing off an Avenger! We also saw a number of previously-unreleased alternate scenes and endings from The Avengers and Iron Man 3 hit the web, one of which showed that The Wasp was originally set to be in The Avengers.

Meanwhile, Nintendo announced a major price cut for its Wii U and a new Nintendo 2DS — a new version of its handheld game console that does not show games in 3D. Plus we have first looks at many of this fall’s upcoming television shows… and set pictures from Game of Thrones season four filming!
