Iron Man battles his most obsessed fanboy in new IM3 deleted scene

Iron Man 3 doesn't hit DVD and Blu-ray until September 24th, but deleted scenes and extras are leaking out — like these alternate versions of Tony Stark's encounter with his #1 fan Gary (played by Happy Endings' Adam Pally). I'm pretty Stark would rather deal with Whiplash again than look at that tattoo. » 8/19/13 9:40am 8/19/13 9:40am

Reality Check: You can't easily replace Robert Downey Jr as Tony Stark

Now that Iron Man 3 has made pretty much all the money in the world, there's reportedly a contract dispute brewing between star Robert Downey Jr. and Marvel, over whether he'll be back for Avengers 2 and 3, and possibly Iron Man 4 as well. Is Downey Jr. overpaid? We don't know. But we do know he's nearly irreplaceable. » 5/08/13 11:12am 5/08/13 11:12am

Iron Man 3: The Fall (and Rise) of Tony Stark

The first Iron Man movie uses Tony Stark as a metaphor for American power, with Tony's near-lethal chest wound signifying his remorse at spreading weapons around Afghanistan. The brilliant Iron Man 3 makes this connection even more explicit, giving us an elaborate fable of post-9/11 America and a paranoid-but-cocky… » 5/03/13 9:27am 5/03/13 9:27am

Did you know that Iron Man 3 takes place partly in China?

Last year, Rian Johnson's time-travel epic Looper had two versions — the U.S. cut, with a brief montage of Joseph Gordon-Levitt's time in China, and the Chinese cut, with a much longer Shanghai sequence. Now, Iron Man 3 takes this trend much, much further, as we move towards a future where China is increasingly… » 5/01/13 11:20am 5/01/13 11:20am

Shane Black Tells Us How Tony Stark is Being "Phased Out" as Iron Man

The trailers for Iron Man 3 show us a shiny new Iron Patriot, a whole army of floating armors... and Tony's mask broken and burned. So is Tony Stark being replaced? And why does Tony spend so much of the movie out of his armor? We asked director Shane Black, and here's what he told us. » 4/30/13 8:00am 4/30/13 8:00am

Tony Stark has post-traumatic Avengers disorder in new Iron Man 3 clip

The second Iron Man 3 clip is here, and even though it doesn't feature any villains, explosions or people wearing armor, it shows how IM3 is going to raise the bar. After Avengers, Tony realizes the entire world depends on Iron Man; no wonder he can't sleep at night (and no wonder he keeps building more suits). » 4/26/13 12:20pm 4/26/13 12:20pm

We really hope this isn't the only post credit scene for Iron Man 3

The best thing about the Marvel movies is hands down the massive attempt the studios make to weave each comic book character together. Either with Easter Eggs, cameos and the beloved post credits scene. Thus just about every extra moments hasn't failed to impress, until now. An alleged recount of Tony Stark's final… » 4/15/13 10:35am 4/15/13 10:35am

Tony Stark taunts terrorists in the first Iron Man 3 clip

I'm not sure exactly what the Mandarin did to earn Tony Stark's wrath in this first Iron Man 3 clip, but I do know this: it's probably a seriously bad idea to give out your home address to an international terrorist. I say this mostly because every IM3 trailer has shown graphic footage of the Mandarin blowing Tony's… » 4/05/13 10:20am 4/05/13 10:20am

Is Hollywood About to Dumb Down the Dystopian British Series Black…

Robert Downey Jr. has bought the rights to "The Entire History of You," one of the episodes from the first season of Black Mirror. It's a pitch-dark tale of a future where people record their memories into brain implants, and can replay them for friends on their computers, mobiles, or whatever. The story centers on how… » 2/13/13 1:01pm 2/13/13 1:01pm

Robert Downey Jr. goes full Superman in the new Iron Man 3 trailer…

We didn't think we could get excited for another Iron Man movie until this moment. An early, exceptionally rough cut of the Super Bowl Iron Man 3 trailer is out, and it's a pretty impressive 30 seconds. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang director Shane Black is pulling out all the crazy action movie stops, and we're totally in.… » 2/03/13 4:54pm 2/03/13 4:54pm

The Avengers really did film a secret extra scene after their world…

Robert Downey Jr. stirred up a bit of drama at The Avengers press conference, when he let it slip that the Avengers would be secretly assembling after their day of press to film one last scene. The films director, Joss Whedon was quick to squash any rumors following up at a separate panel that it "sounds like it was… » 4/13/12 9:28am 4/13/12 9:28am
