Robert Downey Jr. Avengers Age Of Ultron tease

Robert Downey Jr. would like the chance to “awesome” the crap out of you. This morning, RDJ revealed the “big announcement” he’s been teasing over the past week and it’s a pretty cool deal indeed. He’s raising money for Julia’s House, a children’s care hospice in England and how it works is that for every $10 dollar donation you make, you get entered for a chance to win a mind-blowing once-in-a-life time experience with RDJ in Los Angeles, CA, that includes attending the world premiere of his new movie, Marvel’s Avengers: Age Of Ultron.

Let Downey give you more info by checking out his video here below.

Iron Man Manual

Iron Man Manual
Hardcover
Written by Daniel Wallace
Insight Editions
Release Date: November 19, 2013

Iron Man. Tony Stark. Ten years ago these names weren’t nearly as well known as they are today. Marvel was always proud of their Iron Man comic franchise but as with most comic characters, only the readers had the whole scoop. And then came the movies. Now these are household names, the movies are cinematic blockbusters and you cannot help but see Robert Downey, Jr. as the face of old Shell Head. The films did more for the name than the four decades of comics prior, I enjoy them and think they cast Tony perfectly. To celebrate this trilogy of action packed films, Marvel and Insight Editions produced this Iron Man Manual. A beautifully bound book with so much going for it that it’s sure to be a hit!

That said, I am profoundly disappointed that no one saw fit to include anything from the comics. I’m not kidding. Not a single piece from any Iron Man comic is in this. There is a comic cover shown at the beginning of the book, but it’s a Captain America cover! Seriously? This should have more fittingly been called the Iron Man Movie Manual, because that’s what it is. Every single page, every insert, every thought is based on the films. What a huge let down this was for me. Comic fans will open this up and feel the same shock I did, of this I have no doubt. But now that I have that off my chest, let me review what is actually in there, okay? I’ve vented and feel a little better.

Watch Now: John Oliver Defends Iron Man’s Origins On ‘The Daily Show’

John Oliver The Daily Show Iron Man rant

On last night’s episode of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, fill-in host John Oliver (who I love!) did a segment called “Track to the Future,” which took a look at the much-talked-about “Hyperloop,” the super high-speed train proposed by SpaceX CEO and PayPal co-founder Elon Musk that would get travelers from Los Angeles to San Francisco in just 30 minutes.

In the six-minute segment of the comedy news show, Oliver took umbrage with CNN Live’s profile on Musk, where they state that the 42-year-old billionaire inventor was the inspiration for Iron Man‘s Tony Stark character. (Oh, yes they did!)

You can watch the full segment below.

Suits That Fly

Some of my favorite parody music videos come from Wesley Freitas. You may remember his parody of Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe,” “Batman Maybe,” starring Batman and The Dark Knight Rises gang. He followed up “Batman Maybe” with “Lo Pan Style,” a parody of PSY’s “Gangnam Style” with Lo Pan from Big Trouble in Little China.

Now, Freitas has released a parody of Justin Timberlake’s “Suit and Tie” called “Suits That Fly,” starring Freitas as billionaire playboy philanthropist Tony Stark. Check it out here below!

Check It Out: The Unused ‘Iron Man 3’ Opening Credits Sequence

Iron Man 3 Banner

Over the weekend, Iron Man 3 grossed over $175 million at the box office. I guess it’s safe to say that the latest installment in the franchise that launched Marvel Studios as one of the dominant forces in the entertainment industry is a bonafide blockbuster – Our own FamousMonster shares his opinions on the movie here – and we shall see more adventures of Tony Stark and his armored alter ego on the screen in the years to come. Hopefully, star Robert Downey Jr. will be there most of the way.

That’s just groovy. After the overhyped wet noodle that was Iron Man 2 – a heavily compromised production that also served as an abject lesson for how Marvel prioritizes its future cinematic projects from there on – it was great to see an Iron Man sequel that not only held its own with the spectacular 2008 original, but even managed its own sizable share of epic action sequences to rival the finale of last year’s The Avengers. Fanboys cried foul over how certain characters were handled, but on the whole I thought director Shane Black was the perfect person to resurrect ol’ Shellhead as a force to be reckoned with among modern movie heroes. I will say no more because right now you should drop what you are doing and go see Iron Man 3.

*Recently an unknown source posted screen grabs from an beautiful animated opening credits sequence that was created but ultimately discarded from the final cut of Iron Man 3 in favor of opening with narration from Downey. You can view a complete gallery of those grabs here below.

MAJOR SPOILER: ‘Iron Man 3’ Post-Credits Cameo Possibly Revealed

Iron Man 3 Header

Part of the fun of following the developing of each Marvel Studios movie is wondering what amazing surprises would go into their now customary post-credits scene. The first Iron Man paved the way with Samuel L. Jackson’s appearance as Nick Fury to recruit Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) in “the Avenger Initiative” at the very end, while The Avengers simultaneously closed out Phase One and kicked Phase Two into high gear with the revelation that the cosmic evil pulling the strings the whole time was none other than Thanos, one of the Marvel Universe’s most powerful and fearsome villains. That last scene was inserted into the middle of the end credits, so if you stuck around until its final seconds you got to see the Avengers themselves chowing down on a shawarma dinner – a scene filmed only days before the movie’s theatrical debut.

Iron Man 3 held its premiere over the weekend in Paris and according to a source at Latino Review, the Shane Black-directed sequel continues Marvel’s proud tradition of closing their films out in surprising fashion.

READ NO FURTHER IF YOU WANT TO AVOID A MAJOR SPOILER!

Iron Man: The Animated Series (Anime)Marvel Anime: Iron Man – Complete Series
DVD
Directed by Yuzo Sato
Written by Warren Ellis
Marvel Entertainment/Sony Pictures
Release Date: April 24, 2012

Okay, a little honesty here. I thought I had written this like eight weeks ago, but when I went to go link to it, I realized that it must have been one of the reviews I had on my tablet when my it died. So here is my very late review of this two-disc Marvel Anime: Iron Man – Complete Series. It was quite different from other Iron Man cartoons I have seen in the past.

The series itself is very typical of Japanese anime. If you are a fan of this style, then you know what I mean when I say it is very much eye candy. The characters are very animated (no pun intended), almost to the point of ridiculousness at times, actually. But again, this is common for anime. Not that I hate it or anything, but I don’t really like the style. I grew up watching Starblazers and G-Force, so the amalgamated stylings of “Japanimation” are not unknown to me. There just seems to be a certain slickness to it that sets modern anime apart from other cartoon styles.
