25 09 2009


Entertainment Tonight  just premiered some new footage from Iron Man 2 and while I am always excited about more news from what is by far my most anticipated film of next year, I am having a hard time getting over just how horrible Entertainment Tonight really is. Read the rest of this entry »

Sad Face: Norton Out of Iron Man 2

Incredible Hulk - Iron Man 2

Edward Norton is currently in Toronto for the International Film Festival where he is promoting Leaves of Grass, his newest film where he plays two brothers trying to take down a drug lord. During an interview with MTV, Norton dissapointed fans worldwide when he let this little quote slip:

“I don’t know where that’s coming from…I am not in ‘Iron Man 2’ to my knowledge.” Read the rest of this entry »

Robert Downey Jr. and Jon Favreau Play Cowboys and Aliens

2 09 2009

After having so much fun together working on Iron Man and its sequel Jon Favreau has apparently joined Robert Downey Jr. on an adaptation of Cowboys and Aliens. According to the new blog at The Hollywood Reporter, the director has joined the Dreamworks/Universal project which RDJ has been attached to for over a year. It’s only fair that as soon as Eric goes on vacation one of his favorite actor-director combos decide to work together again. Read the rest of this entry »

Is This Whiplash Mark II?

Concept Art

Cinematical has unearthed this concept art of Wiplash from Marvel and it may give us some insight as to what Mickey Rourke’s character will look like in his final form. As of now, our only indications to his appearance have been from the shots of Whiplash as he terrorizes a speedway where Tony Stark is racing, but it is apparent that this takes place early in the film, as his character as you can see his prison jumpsuit under his Mark I armor. It would appear that the concept art was made before Rourke was cast, as the body type is a bit too small and is missing the character’s inked upper-arms.

In addition to the art, the article also mentions that Marvel will be releasing a four-issue limited-series comic series titled “Iron Man vs. Whiplash,” which will investigate the origins of the character. It is not yet known if the material in the series will cover Whiplash’s character development in the film.

Iron Man 2 Comic Con Reel

Iron Man 2 bootleg

It certainly is a comic-book day.

I got in a bit of hot water last time I hosted some bootleg stuff from Comic-Con, but this time, instead of hosting, I’ll just share the love. Just as someone did for the Kick-Ass clips, somebody brought a camcorder to the Iron Man 2 panel and managed to get all of the footage that was shown (it was just a matter of time as to when this would show up). We probably aren’t that far off from seeing a teaser trailer, but if you are like me, you simply cannot wait any longer. Hit the jump to see five and a half minutes of glory from the highly anticipated film. The video isn’t great but you can tell what things are and hear most of what is said. And yes, that is War Machine  firing like a maniac at the end of the clip.

You didn’t get this from me. Read the rest of this entry »

Iron Man 2

(Yes, I already used this image today. And I don’t care)

Those that have been following my previous posts know that I have applied for a job at Stark Industries as part of their viral campaign. After filling out their job application on Thursday, I hadn’t heard anything from anybody. Today, however, I received this email from one Kay Baker:

Hey there!

Thank you so much for being one of the first people to apply for a job at Stark Industries. So far, the response has been incredible. You are among the best and brightest and your interest in joining our ranks is truly appreciated.

Already we have an overwhelming number of applicants and we plan to take our time thoroughly investigating each one. It may be a long process, but it is the only way to ensure that we find the absolute best candidates to work at Stark Industries.

We will contact you soon as we narrow down our selection.

All the best,

My geeky brain is already spinning at the possibilities of where this may lead. I’ll be sure to constantly update the site on where the marketing is headed.
