Iron Man 3

Let’s Settle This: What Constitutes a “Spoiler,” and When is It Okay to Let One Out?

We need to have a chat about spoilers. What they are, when we can talk about them, and why Rollin is completely wrong about them.

Internet, we need to have a serious talk about spoilers. It's gotten out of hand -- both hands. People are simultaneously being too sensitive about minor details, but also printing T-shirts ruining the endings of children's books. It's a divisive issue that comes up a lot here at the Geekosystem office, and I think it's high time we sat down and hashed this thing out. What's a spoiler, and when is it okay to let one out? Fair warning, I'll be using a few classic spoilers as examples, like The Sixth Sense and The Usual Suspects.

Those China-Only Iron Man 3 Scenes Are Being Released As a Short Film

What It Says On the Tin

Everything we've heard about the China-only scenes in Iron Man 3 is that they're sort of lackluster and don't really add anything to the plot. But hey, if they exist Marvel movie completionists might as well watch them, right? Now those of us who don't live in China will have that chance, as Marvel is reportedly releasing three minutes of that extra footage as a short film.

Listen To “Robert Downey Jr.” Sing About His Snazzy Iron Man Suit

Fans Do Cool Things

I almost left Robert Downey Jr.'s name out of the title because it's possible he would do something like this for real. But this is a parody. A very well-executed parody. You may remember Wesley Freitas' work from his Big Trouble in Little China/"Gangnam Style" or Dark Knight Rises/"Call Me Maybe" parodies. This time he's pretending to be Iron Man and singing in the style of Justin Timberlake's "Suit & Tie." Enjoy! Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

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.

The Iron Man Trilogy, Remixed [VIDEO]

Excelsior!

I'm in something of an Iron Man-y mood after having seen Iron Man 3 last night (my review: ASDFGHJKJHGFDS), so this video remix by Mike Relm, made using footage from all three movie and Black Sabbath's "Iron Man" (natch), really hit the spot. If you haven't seen it yet (let's have a moment of silence for Poland, where it's not released 'til May 9th), the Iron Man 3 footage Relm uses is all from the trailers or previously released promo clips, so there's nothing too spoilery.

The Only Thing Better Than a 3D Chalk Art Iron Man Helmet is Three 3D Chalk Art Iron Man Helmets [Video]

Chris Carlson is pretty good at creating 3D chalk art. Okay, less "pretty" and more "really." The videos of him doodling up things like the diamond sword from Minecraft are quite impressive, but his latest work takes the cake. It's not as large as some of his other projects, but Carlson's take on three of the helmets from the Iron Man movie franchise should definitely make you a fan of both him and the AWE me channel.

Dinner and a Movie: Make Arc Reactor Pasta Before Seeing Iron Man 3

Iron Man 3 opens this weekend, and sure, you could just go see the movie, or you could make a night out of it by preparing Tony Stark's Seductively Good Arc Reactor Pasta. That's right, in Kitchen Overlord's quest to make all food more awesome, nerd-chef Chris-Rachael Oseland created a recipe to make fettuccine alfredo look like an arc reactor. There's even a handy graphic.

Iron Man 3 Beats The Avengers Opening World Wide Box Office, Should Enjoy This While it Lasts

Excelsior!

For Americans, Iron Man 3, the first installment of Marve's Phase 2, is still tantalizingly out of reach, close and yet far on the other side of the work week. But for forty two other countries, it opened this weekend. And it opened pretty well.

Joss Whedon Hints at Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver in Avengers 2

Here I was thinking that red carpet Hollywood premieres and the like were boring affairs for those watching from home. The one for Iron Man 3, which was yesterday, has suddenly turned that all around for me. See, in an interview with Yahoo! Movies, Joss Whedon dropped a huge hint about the possible appearance of a certain brother and sister in Avengers 2. Yeah, he's pretty much definitely referring to Wanda and Pietro Maximoff -- Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver.

Stars Shine At The Iron Man 3 Red Carpet But Robert Downey Jr. Doesn’t Wear Anything Fun

Excelsior!

Last night we posted a livestream of the Iron Man 3 premiere from the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood. Today, Disney has graciously shared some images from the red carpet and after party. I guess I was spoiled by Robert Downey Jr. in lederhosen but I'm a little let down he didn't wear anything wacky. Take a look at the stars from the film and see who else popped up from the Marvel Universe.

Iron Man 3 Stars To Get a Different Sort of Suited Up at the Red Carpet Premiere. And We Have a Livestream! [VIDEO]

Excelsior!

The red carpet premiere of Iron Man 3 starts at 9:00 PM EST (6:00 PST), and we have a livestream for you, you lucky ducks! I'm not sure if anything's going to go on besides people walking down a red carpet and occasionally being interviewed (is that all that happens at these things?), but even if there's isn't something super-cool like Robert Downey Jr. soaring into the theater wearing an Iron Man suit, the list of people who'll be walking the red carpet (most of the stars of The Avengers in addition to the Iron Man 3 cast. Plus Stan Lee!) is pretty impressive. Check back at nine and hit the jump to see if that rumor about Ben Kingsley showing up to all the premieres dressed as the Mandarin actually has something to it. In the meantime, you can always stare at Tony's grumpy face.

Iron Man Moved for Iron Lady

i'll just leave this here

My apologies, Britons: the United Kingdom red carpet premiere of Iron Man has been delayed from its original date of next Wednesday due to the funeral of former prime minister Margaret Thatcher. But you're going to see it before any of us Yanks, so I guess our little Revolution wasn't all that great.
