It didn’t take too long for some of the video from Marvel‘s big live streaming Phase 3 announcement event earlier today. They may tell no one to film anything, but you know someone is going to do it anyways. Now we’ve got three clips for you. (more…)
Marvel Studios sprung a super secret event on us and are kicking out incredible news as I write this. By the time I got to the stream, I saw them announcing an official title for ‘Captain America 3′ and other news concerning stuff fans have been dying to hear. Right off the killer slate of DC/Warner Bros. film schedules and their announcement of an upcoming ‘Batman V Superman’ teaser/trailer, Marvel is not to be outdone. Capitalizing on their record-breaking leak/release of ‘Age Of Ultron’s’ trailer, instead of hitting the breaks, they are hitting the gas. And hitting all the right damn notes in the process. Let’s discuss! And keep watching for more posts from us as Marvel spills the goods! (more…)
It’s only one of the most anticipated movies of 2015. It’s also one of the most anticipated movies of the decade. Fans at San Diego and New York Comic Con have been lucky enough to see some of this already, but the wait was soon to be over, as last night it once announced that the next installment of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. would feature the premiere of the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer. Of course, as these things go in the modern age with the internet and all – Surprise! – this puppy leaked early. So if you have no impulse control and an itchy clicking figure, dig in now for your first look at the all new adventure of Marvel’s premiere super-team.
UPDATE: Marvel has thrown up their hands and gone ahead and released the official trailer, along with first official poster.
One of the first comic books I owned as a Spider-Man adventure that doubled as a powerful lesson about drug abuse and just saying no. Even in the regular comic books, there were public service messages amongst the action and the ads, like a particular Colgate ad I remember that featured Captain America teaming up with an anthropomorphized toothbrush and toothpaste to fight tooth decay. Lesson learned. Comics have the power to do more than be movie franchise fodder, and every now and then we remember that. To wit, Marvel is teaming up with the Children’s Hearing Institute of New York to create two brand new superheroes who can save the world while being hearing impaired: Sapheara and The Blue Ear.

Here’s a fun fact. If you fully spell out Robert Downey Junior‘s name, the only vowel in the English alphabet missing is an “A”. You know, A-E-I-O-U-&-Sometimes-Y. Now word is making the Internet rounds that someone at Marvel felt that obvious hole in Robert Downey Jr’s life needed to be filled. Filled with that 30 foot tall Avengers “A” in the movie, the one pictured above. (more…)

Unless you were frozen in ice and in a state of suspended animation yesterday, it was difficult to miss the news that Robert Downey, Jr., Tony Stark/Iron Man himself in the Marvel Studios’ Avengers family of movies, will appear in Captain America 3: Title TBD. What’s more, his appearance will help to ignite a series of events that will result in a superhuman Civil War, based on the Marvel Comics storyline that pitted superhero brother against superhero brother over support or opposition of the Superhero Registration Act. While this news is big enough on its own, the appearance of Tony Stark in Cap 3 has sparked rumors whether the movie’s directors, brothers Joe and Anthony Russo, will have a wider role in Marvel Studios’ cinematic playground moving forward.

Word swept the Internet late last night that Robert Downey Jr. is in almost completed talks to join the cast of Captain America 3. This isn’t a cameo or flyby appearance, Captain America 3 is believed to be based on the Marvel Comics event Civil War which pitted Captain America against Iron Man over the Superhero Registration Act requiring all those with powers to register with the government. Looking at it from a fan’s perspective you’d think this would be a slam dunk, but apparently, not everyone at Marvel thinks RDJ should have such a large role in Captain America 3. (more…)
One night I was flipping channels and landed on a movie called ‘Putney Swope.’ It was directed by a little-known Hollywood player named Robert Downey Sr. Before that, it had never dawned on me to even Google who RDS was. I’m sure at the time, he was respected for his work and mild contributions to the industry. Kinda like Howard Stark. Sure, Stark’s known as being a brilliant industrialist who made bank and held fun expos, but his son Tony? Now, there’s a man of outrageous accomplishments. Robert Downey Jr. is indeed Tony Stark – in spirit, comparative achievements, and in how his career overshadowed his dad’s. Keep going for interesting bits of news concerning our resident actor, billionaire, playboy philanthropist, and all-around cool guy. (more…)
