Robert Downey Jr as Tony Stark

Robert Downey Jr.‘s got a lot of Iron Man coming up on his to-do list, but his next new role’s got nothing to do with Marvel at all. He’ll be teaming with director Richard Linklater for an adaptation of the Reply All podcast, specifically the episode titled “Man of the People.” The fact-based tale centers on an early 20th century con man, which sounds like a perfect fit for both Downey and Linklater.

Get all the details on the Robert Downey Jr Richard Linklater project below. Read More »

avengers infinity war score

When Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige announced Avengers: Infinity War, it was positioned as a two-film epic crossover event that would be the culmination of everything Marvel had planned up to that point. So with both films about to start shooting concurrently, I thought it might be fun to take a look at all the characters confirmed or rumored to be part of Avengers: Infinity War, and theorize how they may play into this story.

Tony Stark's Secret Message to Spider-Man

Despite how long Marvel Studios tapdanced around the prospect of Spider-Man appearing in Captain America: Civil War, we were certain the webslinger was going to show up in the movie. However, one thing we didn’t know about until around the time the movie hit theaters was that the post-credits scene for the movie featured a tease for Spider-Man: Homecoming. And that scene almost featured a more overt tease for what’s to come in the Spidey franchise reboot.

Some concept art from the visual effects company Perception, who created the digital readout projected by Peter Parker’s (Tom Holland) webshooters that Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) gave him, reveals that there was almost a secret message that the genius, billionaire, playboy philanthropist left for the webslinger. Find out about Tony Stark’s secret message to Spider-Man after the jump. Read More »

sherlock holmes 3

Iron Man may be Robert Downey Jr.‘s most famous role, but you may recall that it’s not his only ongoing franchise about an arrogant genius. He’s also the star of Warner Bros.’ Sherlock Holmes movies — not to be confused with BBC One’s Sherlock TV series, which features a different Marvel actor as the famed detective.

The Sherlock Holmes franchise was put on hold for a bit while Downey was busy with Marvel, but now Sherlock Holmes 3 is moving forward again with an entire writers’ room at its disposal. Gary Whitta (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy), Justin Malen (Baywatch), and Kieran Fitzgerald (Snowden) are all on board to help write the next (but probably not last) installment of the series.  Read More »

Save the Day Campaign Video

Famous people are used to shill for politicians all the time. But unlike making a decision on which soft drink, pizza or shoes you’re going to buy, choosing to vote is a much bigger deal. That’s why a new campaign called Save the Day has called upon an endless array of famous people to encourage you to vote.

Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Keegan-Michael Key, James Franco, Julianne Moore, Stanley Tucci, Nathan Fillion and a bunch more familiar faces (and some not so familiar) were rounded up to create this video that encourages people to register to vote. However, while this starts out like any other pro-voting campaign, it takes one hilarious turn right after the other, right down to a promise made by all the celebrities that Mark Ruffalo is tragically unaware of. Just watch the video below. Read More »

Captain America: Civil War bloopers 2

Captain America: Civil War was a somber affair, and understandably so — the film rocked the very notion of the Avengers to its very core by pitting hero against hero and friend against friend. It was downright heartbreaking to see Steve and Tony come to blows despite their own best efforts to reach a common ground, and then to see the rest of the Avengers forced to pick sides.

But behind the scenes, it was a whole other story. With the film’s home video release just around the corner, Marvel Studios has released the Civil War blooper reel, and it’s silly, endearing stuff. Captain America may be going through some heavy stuff, but Chris Evans is enjoying the hell out of himself, and Sebastian Stan smiles more in these few minutes than Bucky probably has in the past 70 years. Scarlett Johansson‘s tough action hero schtick gets undermined by faulty equipment, and Robert Downey Jr. just can’t help getting in a snarky remark or two. Anthony MackieJeremy RennerPaul BettanyElizabeth Olsen, and Martin Freeman all make appearances as well.

Captain America 3 Zombie Storyline

Robert Downey Jr. landed a huge paycheck for Captain America: Civil War. The actor, whose contract had expired before the Captain America sequel, was reportedly paid $40 million upfront and a significant back end fee. This enormous payday, however, almost didn’t happen, so directors Anthony and Joe Russo and all involved had to consider other stories to tell. What was another story that was a viable option for the filmmakers? Cap taking on zombies or, as Joe puts it, infected people that are similar to zombies.

Below, learn more about an early Captain America 3 zombie storyline.
