Two summer movies packed with lots of hardware have released brand new images. While it’s good to see another machine created for Guillermo Del Toro to stand alongside other massive robots in Pacific Rim, the image from Iron Man 3 is a lot more revealing.
In fact, a few months ago, when an image of this armor made its way online, we were asked to take it down. A few days later, I asked Marvel President Kevin Feige about it and he denied it existed. And yet, here it is, the official reveal of the Mark 39, Sub-Orbital Gemini Armor. The probable uses of this suit should be considered a major spoiler, but we’ll talk about it below along with the Crimson Typhoon Jaeger from Pacific Rim. Read More »

It’s been what, two weeks since the last Iron Man 3 poster was revealed? That kind of laziness simply won’t do. Fortunately, IMAX is here to save the day with a new poster featuring the whole gang. Tony (Robert Downey Jr.) and Pepper (Gwyneth Paltrow) clutch each other while supporting characters look on somberly, and little Iron Men fly around in the background.
All of it portends some serious drama, but most of us won’t know what exactly happens in the film for another several weeks. As part of the Marvel family, though, Joss Whedon got a little sneak peek. And according to studio head Kevin Feige, he had quite a reaction to the Iron Man 3 ending. Read about his comments and check out the new poster after the jump.

Both Shane Black and Kevin Feige know how important Iron Man 3 is. Not only is it a sequel to two successful Iron Man films, it’s a sequel to one of the biggest movies of all time, The Avengers, and the first prequel to a slew of other films, such as The Avengers 2 and Guardians of the Galaxy. That meant lots and lots of care was taken in preparing not only the script, but the connections within the Marvel Cinematic Universe as well as balancing the action in regards to the other films.
A few months ago, we were among a group of journalists who sat down with Black and Feige to discuss all those things related to Iron Man 3, and more. Below, you can read quotes about the development, filming and context of Iron Man 3 as well as the mystery of post-credits sequences, Black Panther, Runaways, the S.H.I.E.L.D. TV show and PG-13 vs. R-ratings. Read More »
“Why wouldn’t Tony Stark just call The Avengers if he’s having a problem in Iron Man 3?” It’s a questions fans have been asking for months in anticipation of the first film of Marvel Phase 2, out May 3rd. We all know Tony Stark is friendly with the likes of Captain America, The Hulk, Hawkeye, Thor and Black Widow so it would make sense for him to ask for help when battling The Mandarin. So why doesn’t he?
At a recent roundtable we joined with director Shane Black and Marvel President Kevin Feige (from which we’ll have more soon), Feige explained why he doesn’t think that’s a problem, and confirmed it will be dealt with in the movie. He also discussed how the S.H.I.E.L.D. TV show fits into the cinematic Marvel Universe. Read his quotes below.

Despite the presence of characters like Thor and Loki, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has mostly been grounded in an Earthbound reality. But Phase Two seems to be taking a more otherworldly bent, with Thor: The Dark World and Guardians of the Galaxy on the table.
We’ve already seen how Marvel Studios does Asgard thanks to the first Thor, but Guardians promises to take us into a whole new corner of the MCU. According to studio head Kevin Feige, Guardians will be set “95% in space.” And yes, that means we won’t see much of the Avengers out there. Hit the jump to read his comments.
