New Details About Ben Kingsley’s Marvel One-Shot

Posted by Ben Huber on Jan 10, 2014 in Cinema, Comic Books


Many fans weren’t happy with the twist involving Ben Kingsley as the Mandarin. If you haven’t seen Iron Man 3, bail out here. Unless you don’t mind being spoiled. Since he was merely posing as the Mandarin,  fans were upset that we’d never get to see the version of the famous villain from the comics, clearly ruining his legacy. I thought it was a great twist, although sadly Guy Peace couldn’t really hold his own as an interesting villain once the “Mandarin” was gone. Anyway: Ben Kingsley is back as the actor Trevor Slattery again, but it seems that the whole Mandarin thing was perhaps… appropriated from the already existing terrorist group The Ten Rings. And hints that perhaps the real Mandarin is very upset that someone is using his namesake. This could be a neat twist on things, but we’ll have to wait till the one-shot arrives — it’ll be on the Thor 2 blu-ray, which comes out February 25th. Till then, have some pictures of Ben Kingsley looking nervous! Read more…

Latest Iron Man 3 Trailer Shows Army Of Iron Men

Posted by Bob Muir on Mar 6, 2013 in Cinema, Comic Books

Iron Man 3 new suits

The latest Iron Man 3 trailer is out, and as predicted by last week’s poster, Tony Stark and Rhodey will have plenty of help. This movie is going to be bursting with new suits, and it looks like they’ll be providing back-up for Tony instead of being worn. It’s not clear if anyone else is wearing them, but I could see the movie explaining them as controlled by A.I. Read more…

Superhero News: Iron Man 3 and Man of Steel

Posted by Ben Huber on Mar 1, 2013 in Cinema, Comic Books


Here’s a few tidbits for your weekend: Man of Steel, the Warner Bros. latest attempt to reboot the Superman franchise, is getting some good buzz. JoBlo mentions that their source says the upcoming movie has “tons of action” and “it’s not nearly as dour and serious as the trailers suggest.” This is great news, and I hope it turns out to be true. I’m hoping the combination of Snyder and Nolan can result in a good movie. Check out JoBlo for more details.  In other superhero news, Marvel has released a new Iron Man 3 poster that shows off more than a few Iron Man armors flying around. Perhaps we’re getting an Iron Army? Check out the poster below. Read more…

Check Out Mandarin in This New Iron Man 3 Poster

Posted by Ben Huber on Feb 23, 2013 in Cinema, Comic Books


He’s still a little shadowy, but what villain isn’t? Here’s a great look at Mandarin, the villain in Iron Man 3, in this brand new poster. Ben Kingsley looks great in this role, for sure, and I can’t wait to see him in action. While the costuming on Mandarin seems to be suitably eastern, he also seems to be channeling a dictator-esque fashion sense as well. Will he be enough of a villain to really kick Tony Stark to the curb? Going by all the trailers and media we’ve seen so far, the answer appears to be ‘yes.’ The Empire Online version of the poster seems to have a certain helmet in it… Check out the full poster below!

Iron Man 3 Gets New Poster and Teaser

Posted by Ben Huber on Feb 2, 2013 in Cinema, Comic Books


Here’s a sweet new poster for Iron Man 3, along with a new teaser clip, all leading up to a new trailer during the Superb Owl this Sunday. Not interested in football? That’s ok, because I’m sure it’ll be online mere minutes after the fact, if not beforehand. This new Iron Man film looks to be beating up Tony quite a bit now, even more so than Avengers. Will Shane Black be able to make an awesome film after Favreau’s mess of Iron Man 2? I sure hope so, especially with his buddy-buddy relationship with Robert Downey Jr. I’d like Iron Man 3 to blow my socks off. Watch the preview below. Read more…



Get Your First Look at Mandarin in Iron Man 3

Posted by Ben Huber on Nov 4, 2012 in Cinema, Comic Books


Ok, your first clear look at Mandarin. There were hints of him in the first trailer for Iron Man 3, but now we have a nice clear image of him. And you know what? Ben Kingsley looks pretty awesome all dressed up like that. I’m impressed how well they adapted the character for the screen – although, is he wearing a graphic tee underneath all that? I’m interested if Shane Black (the new director) can pick the series up after the generally disappointing Iron Man 2, given his close relationship with Robert Downey Jr. Perhaps the magic of the first movie will never be matched, but at the very least I bet we’ll get an awesome villain.

Rumored Iron Man 3 Plot Leak

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Mar 13, 2012 in Cinema, Comic Books

Iron Man Avengers Poster Crop

It’s just a rumor, but Latino Review claims to have the scoop regarding the plot of Iron Man 3, including its potential villain — if you can call it that. Since it’s just a rumor, I’m not really sure how much of a spoiler it’d be but better safe than sorry. If you absolutely want to avoid any rumors about the film, and considering The Avengers hasn’t even hit theaters yet, that might not be a bad idea, then read no further. Otherwise, hit the jump.

Iron Man 3 Snags a Downey-Favorite Director

Posted by Michael Sacco on Feb 19, 2011 in Cinema, Comic Books

Shane Black

No, not Val Kilmer, the other guy. Shane Black, who directed RDJ in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, is said to be helming the third Iron Man film after Jon Favreau was booted from the director’s spot. Downey ultimately has choice of director in that he is allowed to leave the project if he doesn’t approve of the director, so Paramount and Marvel Studios have reason to keep him happy. Black and Downey have a long history and a good friendship — in fact, much of the original Iron Man‘s dialogue was cribbed from discussions between the two in Downey’s trailer even while filming was ongoing. Black is a great choice for director, and he may even be writing the film as well, so let’s hope that the third film in the series fares better script-wise than the second did. Read more…
