New Iron Man 3 poster has all of the armors

Yahoo! Movies has revealed a new poster for Iron Man 3, and it finally has official confirmation of the rumored suits of armor that'll be appearing in the film. There's seven new ones here (well, the one in the top left corner might be from a previous film). The armor on middle-right is said to be a Deep Space armor (a toy calls it the Starboost Irom Man), possibly tying into Guardians of the Galaxy. Here's leaked concept art for the space armor and a heavy Hulkbuster suit. And don't forget the Heartbreaker. This movie is looking more awesome by the day. A new trailer will be out on March 5.

Iron Man Heartbreaker revealed?

A couple of weeks ago, I posted about the Iron Man 3 Heartbreaker armor that was revealed in the tie-in LEGO sets. Now, ComicBookMovie has a piece of concept art from the film that seems to confirm--and give a better look at--the armor. Rumor is there's a new trailer for the film dropping soon that will show of several new armors, and based on the LEGO sets, this heavy duty suit could be the one Tony Stark takes into battle against the Manderin.
Also, Here's the Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) poster I guessed was on the way. She's holding Iron Man's worse-for-wear helmet. Or is she? Just waiting on the Robert Downey Jr. one to finish the set.

Ben Kingsley is a badass in new "Iron Man 3" poster

Check out today's poster for Iron Man 3 featuring Ben Kingsley's Manderin (or, as I like to think Evil Gandhi) looking like an actual badass. The sunglasses add that extra "I'm gonna blow shit up" vibe. Director Shane Black previously criticized the character for being a racist caricature so it'll be interesting to see how he deals with that in the film. In the hands of Sir Ben, I'm not particularly worried. This is the third character poster revealed so far, we've already seen Guy Pearce (Momento, Lockout) as Aldrich Killian and Don Cheadle as War Machine. Over the next few days, I expect we'll get one for Gwyneth Paltrow (Pepper Potts) and of course Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark himself.

My favorite movies and comics of 2012

Time to look at my favorite things from 2012, a follow up to last year. It was an eventful year. We had a presidential election. The world failed to end. The economy did bad stuff. You know, the usual. World and political stuff isn't what this blog's about though. This was the year of Call Me Maybe and 50 Shades of Gray. More importantly to me, it was the year that The Avengers, The Hobbit, and The Dark Knight Rises all hit the silver screen. Creatively, I was on stage a few times, and even on camera. I've started a new novel (YA fantasy) and I'm working on a comic (superheroes). I'll post updates on both here in the future. Anyway on to the things I loved about 2012.

LEGO gives more hints at summer Super Heroes

The first official images of this summer's LEGO Marvel and DC Universe Super Heroes sets are surfacing, and they're full of hints and spoilers for Iron Man 3 and Man of Steel. Iron Man: Extremis Sea Port Battle has Iron Man and War Machine chasing after Aldrich Killian in a speedboat. It looks like Guy Pearce's Killian in going to be trying out Extremis on himself, based on the minifigure's face. That's a change from the comic storyline.
Next, is Iron Man vs. The Mandarin: Ultimate Battle. It looks like it's final showdown of the film and features Tony Stark in the rumored Heartbreaker armor. The questionable accuracy of LEGO sets hopefully means the Mandarin won't be driving around in a flame-throwing buggy. Man of Steel and the big spoiler for Iron Man 3 are after the jump.

Guardians of the Galaxy finds its Starlord

After months of rumors involving every young male actor in Hollywood, James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy has finally cast Peter Quill a.k.a. Starlord, the half-human NASA astronaut, and it's Chris Pratt, best know for Parks and Recreation. He recently appeared in Zero Dark Thirty as a member of Seal Team Six. No other roles have been cast, though there are plenty of rumors. The Guardians themselves are getting a new comic series starting later this month.

LEGO and the Super Bowl give "Iron Man 3" hints

The Super Bowl spot for Iron Man 3 (embedded in extended form above) shows off the airplane rescue scene previously spotted in set photos. It's an Air Force One rescue and looks suitably awesome. Moving on, a look at the upcoming LEGO sets reveals yet another suit of armor. On the right is the Mark XLII we've seen in all the trailers, but the one on the left is new. Reports are calling it the Heartbreaker armor. Note the blue eyes and chest light.

Emily VanCamp joins Captain America

Deadline is reporting that Revenge actress Emily VanCamp has signed up to join Captain America: The Winter Soldier as the female lead. There's no official word on the role she'll be playing, but the safe bet is Cap's love interest, S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Sharon Carter. Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Samuel Jackson (Nick Fury), and Cobie Smulders (Maria Hill) are already signed on, suggesting a heavy S.H.I.E.L.D. presence in the film. VanCamp beat out a long list of actresses who'd previously been rumored for the role, including Imogen Poots (Fright Night), Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones), Jessica Brown Findlay (Downton Abbey), Teresa Palmer (Warm Bodies), Alison Brie (Community), and Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Scott Pilgrim). She joins a cast including Chris Evans (Captain America), Sebastian Stan (Bucky Barnes), Anthony Mackie (The Falcon), Frank Grillo (Crossbones), Toby Jones (Arnim Zola). Joe and Anthony Russo are directing, and the film is currently scheduled for April 4, 2014.
