The Walt Disney Company/Marvel Comics(NEW YORK) -- Avengers: Age of Ultron opened internationally as the No. 1 movie, raking in more than $200 million overseas, and Friday's U.S. premiere was widely expected to set or break records.
New characters in this installment of the blockbuster franchise include a murderous robot and a pair of siblings with superpowers. Those siblings -- the characters Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch -- are played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen.
The two chatted with ABC News’ Amy Robach about their turn in the film, and she asked them whether they were intimidated to join the cast of such well-known and beloved superheroes.
“We had just come off working together on Godzilla, so we had already known each other and were already friends at that point,” said Olsen, 26, referring to her previous work with Taylor-Johnson. “So it was nice to come in together into an intimidating environment. But everyone ended up being like the nicest people ever and not intimidating.”
Taylor-Johnson, 24, agreed, saying: “It felt like family.”
Speaking of family, Johnson and Olsen have famous ones of their own in real life.
Taylor-Johnson's wife, 48-year-old Sam Taylor-Johnson, directed the hit Fifty Shades of Grey. The film is based on the bestselling book of the same name.
Olsen’s sisters are Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, the 28-year-old twins who rose to fame as young children when they starred in the hit sitcom, Full House.” The two women are now entrepreneurs and fashion designers. One of their brands, Elizabeth and James, is named for Elizabeth and another actor sibling, James, who uses the name Trent Olsen professionally.
Robach asked Elizabeth Olsen whether she inspired her sisters’ designs or whether they inspired her.
“They inspire me,” she replied. “I don't know anything about fashion. And they have the best taste above anyone I know. So I'm inspired by them every day of my life.”
Photo by Alberto E. Rodriguez/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- A wrongful-death lawsuit was filed Friday in California against Bruce Jenner stemming from the four-car crash in February that left one of the drivers dead.
Stepchildren of the late Kim Howe allege Jenner was "negligent" when his SUV hit Howe's Lexus in Malibu, resulting in her death, according to Superior Court of California paperwork obtained by ABC News.
Jenner's Escalade hit Howe's white Lexus, causing the car to roll into oncoming traffic, where she hit a Humvee, according to the L.A. County Sheriff's Department at the time of the crash. The five people inside the Humvee suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
The lawsuit say the two stepchildren suffered "enormous damages and losses" after Howe's death.
Jenner, who was uninjured in the crash, released a statement Feb. 8, the day after the incident, saying, "My heartfelt and deepest sympathies go out to the family and loved ones, and to all of those who were involved or injured in this terrible accident. It is a devastating tragedy and I cannot pretend to imagine what this family is going through at this time. I am praying for them. I will continue to cooperate in every way possible."
Jenner, 65, cooperated with investigators, police said. He passed a field sobriety test and then voluntarily submitted a blood sample to determine whether he was intoxicated.
The L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. is still investigating the crash and Jenner has not been charged.
A representative for Jenner did not immediately respond to ABC News’ request for comment.
ABC/ Lou Rocco(NEW YORK) -- Taylor Swift is constantly trying to one-up herself.
The singer, who’s about to embark on her 1989 World Tour, admitted to Extra that she wants this one to be even better than her last tour.
“It would be so ridiculous if I didn’t look it at that way, because that’s how everyone else is looking at it,” she said. “So yeah, I need my tour to be better than my last tour. I need my album to be better than my last album.”
Swift said she wants this tour to be a fresh experience for her fans.
“My hope is that my fans don’t feel similar watching this tour in any way then they felt watching the last tour,” she explained.
That includes enlisting some of her pals, including the girl band HAIM, to join her on the road.
“It’s gonna be insane,” Swift said. “They’re just so incredible and there’s just such good vibes. Like, when they walk into a room it just changes the entire dynamic. They’re just like loud in the best way and so energetic. And that energy is gonna be so cool to have on the road.”
She’s even started making phone calls to some of her famous friends to get them to take the stage with her as surprise guests.
“I end up assuming the role of booking agent essentially when I’m on tour,” she added.
ABC/Michael Ansell(NEW YORK) -- What's the difference between Kirstie Alley and a Christie Ally?
The Internet needs help distinguishing between the two similarly sounding nouns, so we're here to help.
Kirstie Alley is the actress from Cheers who woke up Friday morning to find herself one of the most talked about people on the Internet for something she did not have a part of.
The other Christie ally is David Wildstein, a high school classmate of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and an official at the Port Authority. Wildstein pleaded guilty on Friday to his role in "Bridgegate" where he allegedly helped plot the closing of lanes at the George Washington Bridge in 2013.
After a long week and waking up to a headline such as "Christie Ally Expected to Plead Guilty in New Jersey Bridge Lane Closings," some people were left with their heads spinning.
How did the actress wind up tangled in Bridgegate?
So many people confusing Kirstie Alley with "Christie Ally." It's almost like nobody knows her name.
Larry Busacca/Getty Images for Songwriters Hall Of Fame(NEW YORK) -- Singer Ben E. King, best-known for his work with The Drifters and his classic solo hit, “Stand By Me,” has died at age 76. King's booking agent confirmed his passing to ABC News Radio.
Born Benjamin Earl Nelson in North Carolina, King’s family moved to Harlem, New York when he was 9. Eleven years later, he joined a new incarnation of The Drifters and sang lead on many of the group’s biggest hits, including “There Goes My Baby,” “This Magic Moment,” and “Save the Last Dance for Me.”
Two years later, a dispute with the singing group’s management prompted King to leave The Drifters for a solo career, where he scored a hit with his first single, “Spanish Harlem.” But it was his second single, the Leiber & Stoller composition “Stand By Me,” released in 1961, that has proven King’s most enduring, and has become a rock and pop classic.
King’s chart success waned as the British Invasion took over America’s radio airwaves, though he continued to perform throughout his life. In 1988, King was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of The Drifters. Last March, the National Recording Registry added King’s original performance of “Stand By Me” to its permanent collection, joining other recordings judged to be "culturally, historically or aesthetically significant."
The Walt Disney Company/Marvel Comics(NEW YORK) — The summer movie season is under way with the release of what will undoubtedly be one of the highest-grossing films of the year.
Avengers: Age of Ultron sees the return of Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man; Chris Hemsworth as Thor; Mark Ruffalo as The Incredible Hulk; Chris Evans as Captain America; Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow; and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye.
Marvel newcomer James Spader voices Ultron, a villainous robot aiming to wipe out humanity. It's up to the Avengers to save the planet from Ultron's destructive ways.
Also new to the franchise are Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch, Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Pietro Maximoff/Quicksilver, and Paul Bettany as Vision. Bettany has voiced Iron Man's A.I. pal, J.A.R.V.I.S., in past Marvel films.
Cobie Smulders, Anthony Mackie, Don Cheadle and Samuel L. Jackson also star in Avengers: Age of Ultron, which was directed by Joss Whedon. The film is rated PG-13.
The first Avengers film, released in 2012, grossed $207 million in its opening weekend, so expect Age of Ultron to rake in big bucks over the next few days.

ABC/Randy Holmes(NEW YORK) — Kristin Wiig gets serious in her latest film, Welcome to Me.
The actress plays Alice Klieg, a woman with a borderline personality disorder who wins the Mega Millions Lottery and buys her own talk show. In one heart-wrenching scene, Wiig strips down completely and wanders naked and confused through a crowded casino.
"It was the part and it felt right, so I did it," Wiig said in the latest issue of Violet Grey magazine about her decision to disrobe on camera. "Of course you’re nervous, and you know people are going to make comments, but if you care about that, your job instantly becomes more difficult. You have to do things for you."
Wiig hopes people embrace this more dramatic side of her.
"I always say people know you how they know you, and I think people know me probably from SNL and Bridesmaids," Wiig said. "I’ve done a couple of things that have been dramatic and sometimes I get frustrated because like...there was a scene I shot once where it was like, 'Oh, this woman is so sad that she’s doing this thing,' and when we screened it people laughed."
For that reason, Wiig was nervous going into her latest film. "I know that there’s some really dark moments and there’s some really funny moments," she said, "and it’s kind of up to the audience to interpret them."
Welcome to Me, which also stars James Marsden, Tim Robbins, Joan Cusack and Loretta Devine, opens in theaters Friday.
Justin Stephens/NBC(LOS ANGELES) — James Spader had strong motivation for joining the cast of the Avengers sequel: He wanted to take part in a movie that would appeal to his kids.
The Blacklist star voices the titular, killer robot in Avengers: Age of Ultron, in theaters now. He tells ABC Radio he was "intrigued" after watching past Marvel films such as Iron Man and the first Avengers movie.
Spader adds, "I'd never made a film for my kids. And I thought that would be really great, to be able to do a film that my kids would be excited about."
Though Ultron seeks to destroy humanity, Spader believes his character can be funny and eloquent at times.
He argues, "We may not like the idea that maybe another species might be more successful at this than us, but he's presenting that as a possibility."
Avengers: Age of Ultron reunited Spader with Robert Downey Jr., his co-star in the 1980s movies Tuff Turf and Less Than Zero. Spader shares that while they drifted apart in the ensuing years, Age of Ultron "brought us back together again and it was probably, in the long run, I guess it probably is going to end up being the most important aspect of doing this film, probably, is that."

Kevin Winter/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Just in time for audiences to see his latest cameo in Avengers: Age of Ultron, Stan Lee, the co-creator of such characters as Iron Man, Spider-Man, and The Incredible Hulk — and the man who has appeared in just about every big screen Marvel movie in a tiny part — is imparting his knowledge of cameo acting to a new generation of performers.
Really just a clever ad from Avengers' automobile sponsor Audi, Stan Lee Cameo School shows the living legend and the "master of cameo acting" teaching the likes of Kevin Smith, Tara Reid, and Guardians of the Galaxy star Michael Rooker the finer points of nailing Marvel movie bit parts like Lee's "Museum Guard," "Man Drinking out of Bottle," and "Man On Bench."
It's not as easy as it looks. As Rooker watches Lee grab a drink, his student ponders, "Is he drinking coffee or is he 'cameo drinking coffee?' I can't tell."
The new spot, which also features Lou "The Incredible Hulk" Ferrigno, has gone viral on YouTube, and ends with Lee making a cameo in his own short.

"Fifty Shades of Grey" - Focus Features(NEW YORK) — Are you ready for the follow-up to Fifty Shades of Grey?
A teaser forFifty Shades Darker, the second film in the trilogy based on author E.L. James' erotic bestsellers, is now available online.
The 30-second clip shows Jamie Dornan reprising his role of Christian Grey, dressed in a tuxedo and slipping on a masquerade mask. There's no sign of Dornan's co-star, Dakota Johnson, who plays Anastasia Steele.
The video asks, "Are you ready for something darker?"
Universal Pictures announced last week that Fifty Shades Darker will open Feb. 10, 2017. A director for the film has yet to be named.
If you haven't seen Fifty Shades of Grey yet, it will be released in digital HD on Friday and on DVD and Blu-ray on May 8.
ABC/Randy Holmes(NEW YORK) — Jane Fonda wouldn't mind seeing a woman in the White House in the near future.
While meeting with reporters to discuss her new Netflix series, Grace and Frankie, the actress and women's rights activist was asked about the possibility that a female candidate — namely, Hillary Clinton — could be elected president in 2016.
Fonda said "it's perfect possible and maybe even probable," though she added, "It's not good to make it look like it's inevitable. I think we're all going to have to work hard and make sure we show up and vote."
Fonda suggested one benefit to having a woman run the country: "Maybe that would lead to equal pay. Wouldn't that be nice?"
"It's about time," she continued.
Fonda co-stars with Lily Tomlin in Grace and Frankie, which premieres May 8 on Netflix. They play two women who bond after their husbands leave their wives for each other.
ABC/Randy Holmes(LOS ANGELES) — On Thursday night's Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Jimmy welcomed Kim Kardashian West, who was there to promote her new selfie book Selfish, but who also discussed her support for her transitioning stepfather Bruce Jenner.
"Bruce is doing really well," West said. "He is so happy...I think it's the sense of relief from all of the amazing support that he's felt."
"It's a really brave thing to come out and, you know, be so truthful, and to have all of that kind of support I think meant the world to him."
West also confirmed that she offered Jenner fashion advice when he finishes his transition and begins living like a woman. "Yes, I said the only thing is, whatever you do, is do not steal my glam team," she said to laughs. "They are mine! Like, there are too many girls in this family."
Getting more serious, the reality star said, "I said, whatever help you need, you have to look and feel your best, so whatever help you need, style-wise, glam-wise, I'm here to help."
Photo by Timur Emek/ Getty Images (NEW YORK) -- U2 is gearing up for a new tour, but the band's frontman, Bono, still hasn't fully recovered from last year's bicycle accident.
The singer said in an interview that he still "can't play guitar."
"It feels like I have somebody else’s hand,” he told The New York Times. "I can't bend [my ring finger and pinky] and this [part] is like rigor mortis. But they say that nerves heal about a millimeter a week, so in about 13 months I should know if it’s coming back.”
Bono, 54, hurt his hand, shoulder, elbow and face in the bicycle accident in Manhattan's Central Park last November. In January he said he may never play guitar again.
“I really used to think that my head was harder than any surface it came in contact with, and I don’t anymore,” he told The Times. “I didn’t come off a Harley-Davidson. I came off a push bike and smashed myself to bits. There is no glory here.”
Still, in the time since the incident, Bono, who has learned new ways of holding the microphone, said he has been writing songs and has another guitarist play chords that he can't. And of course, he's always had the support of his bandmates.
