We’re a little over a week away from the biggest movie of the summer, Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron. In less than ten years, Marvel has built a powerful brand in Hollywood thanks to their great casting, sharp writing, and an ability to distill decades of comic books down to fun, accessible adventures. A big part of that translation process is the look of their movies, and particularly the look of their characters. And that’s all about costumes, which is a particular specialty of Marvel’s. Between Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, and the rest, they’ve got some sharp-dressed heroes.
Robert Downey Jr., presenting a bionic Iron Man arm to an exceedingly well-dressed 7-year-old fan named Alex, who was born with a partially developed right arm. The arm wasn’t built by Tony Stark, but rather by a college student named Albert Manero who makes low-cost 3D-printed bionic limbs for children. But Downey received the honor and pleasure of presenting him with his new arm, and comparing it to one of his own Iron Man suits.
Anyone who has been following superhero movies knows that Robert Downey, Jr. has signed on to return as Tony Stark in 'The Avengers 2' and 'The Avengers 3,' but his future as Iron Man beyond that is up in the air. It's unlikely that Downey (who will be 53 when the third 'Avengers' film hits) will occupy the role forever, and Marvel hasn't been shy about recasting the character should the need ever
Look, we all knew that 'Iron Man 3' was going to make a whole bunch of money and open at number one at the box office and kick the summer movie season off in style. The question was never "Is 'Iron Man 3' going to make any money?", the question was always "What absolutely absurd amount is 'Iron Man 3' going to make in its opening weekend?"
You've been hearing about it now for months, and it's finally here: the latest installment in Marvel's highly lucrative 'Avengers' film family, 'Iron Man 3.' Apparently all the other movies were a bit scared off, and considering the gigantic openings of the last two 'Iron Man' flicks, it's hard to blame them.
From the earliest days of his appearances in Marvel Comics' 'Tales of Suspense,' Tony Stark has always been modeled after aviator/inventor/industrialist Howard Hughes. With 'Iron Man 3,' Stark assumes a new dimension of Hughes' persona: that of the paranoid shut-in who, in his later years, became notorious for roaming his private floor of the Desert Inn Hotel in Las Vegas, freaking out about invis
Want to watch Robert Downey Jr. get violently tossed around on the 'Iron Man 3' set? Why wouldn't you? A new behind-the-scenes look at the Marvel sequel has hit, offering plenty of destruction and green-screen chaos.
Though it may only be the end of January, and it may feel like another big movie season is wrapping up, we're only three months away from the start of the summer season, which means we're nearly ninety days out from 'Iron Man 3.' Which means the advertising blitz is about to start, and now there's a great new poster for the film to coincide with the new Super Bowl spot.
'Iron Man 3' has a new trailer coming this Sunday at the 2013 Super Bowl and to help promote the upcoming superhero movie, Robert Downey, Jr. is out and about talking all things Iron Man. And as we all learned from that time when he spoiled the 'Avengers' post-credits shawarma scene, Downey isn't the best at keeping top secret things top secret. So it shouldn't surprise you that in a recent interv
We're over six months away from the release of 'Iron Man 3,' but Marvel - coming off a pretty good year, what with 'The Avengers' and all - doesn't want to let the buzz slip away from them. And so now we get a new look at their villain in 'Iron Man 3,' The Mandarain.
