  2. MTV Greenlights Their Shannara Season, Taps This Summer’s TMNT Reboot Director to Exec Produce

    Shannabunga!

    "Oh, cool, that Shannara series MTV was considering got picked up. Not a lot of info yet... wait, who'd they get to run this thing?" It's not the Transformers: Age of Extinction writer co-producing a live-action Dumbo movie, but it's weird. (Yes, I know the pic I used is from the Shannara computer game, not one of the books, but it speaks to me on a deep emotional level.)

  5. Sticking to the Original Blueprints Keeps Iron Man 3 Working

    Review

    “The world is getting weird,” declares faithful former bodyguard Happy (Jon Favreau) early in the first act of Iron Man 3. He’s not wrong. Everybody’s favorite genius billionare playboy philanthropist is back for a fourth round, facing a changing world, and a changing self. After the invasion of New York, and the start of the Avengers, there’s plenty on the table for Mr. Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) to handle, from terrorists to his mercurial relationship to his own obsessions. Fortunately for us, though, IM3 doesn’t take too steep of a dive into Tony’s demons. It stays at a neat cruising altitude: charming, effusive, with requisite explosions aplenty. Much like the most used and battered of Tony Stark’s suits, Iron Man 3 has some loose pieces that rattle, but it holds together for a fun, familiar ride. Material under the cut contains arc-reactor-powered SPOILERS. Read at your own discretion.

  6. Inquiring Minds Want To Know If J.J. Abrams & Jon Favreau Want In On Star Wars VII

    May The Force Be With You

    For a whole generation of nerds directors, Star Wars is the Holy Grail. They've probably dreamed about it, brainstormed what they'd do if it was handed to them, but never did they think it would become reality. Thanks to Disney buying LucasFilm, now it is. Reporters have been scrambling to get quotes from any number of people but someone finally managed to track down both J.J. Abrams, Jon Favreau, and more to get their thoughts.

    Marvel Entertainment International President Simon Philips recently gave a talk in São Paulo, Brazil and said something he probably shouldn't have. Apparently Tony Stark isn't the only wearing armor in Iron Man 3 - Pepper Potts is suiting up!

  8. Dear Iron Man 3 Execs, Please Put Pepper Potts In An Iron Man Suit

    Almost Totally Excellent

    This year's San Diego Comic-Con was pretty exciting for Marvel fans -- not only were five films announced, Robert Downey, Jr. made a surprise appearance, and we got to see the Tony Stark's new suits for the upcoming Iron Man 3. What more could a Marvel fan possibly want? Well, after Iron Man and Iron Man 2 director Jon Favreau mentioned that the idea of suiting Pepper Potts up in her very own powered armor ensemble, the answer is that. We want that, Iron Man 3 executives.

  9. Villains Cast For Thor 2 and Iron Man 3, Plus Happy Hogan Returns!

    Excelsior!

    The casts of Thor 2 and Iron Man 3 are still coming together, and for once, we actually know which villain will be antagonizing one of our beloved Marvel heroes. Ashley Hamilton, who recently competed on Dancing With the Stars and is best known (for some of us) for being married to Shannen Doherty for five seconds (thereabouts), is set to play Firepower in Iron Man 3 alongside a currently undisclosed villain being played by Sir Ben Kingsley. And while the villain has not been confirmed yet for Thor 2 (besides Loki), Danish actor Mads Mikkelson (Casino Royale) is in talks to take on Chris Hemsworth's god of thunder. And while he is in no way a bad guy, Jon Favreau will be back as Happy Hogan in Iron Man 3!

All of the actors are getting roles in Iron Man 3, and all of the actors who were in the second movie are back for the third one. It is shaping up to be the most partytime awesome crowd in a Marvel movie, ever: because now, Jessica Chastain and Guy Pearce have signed on.
