The Avengers

Marvel Studios and Paramount Pictures have unleashed the final theatrical poster for their upcoming superhero team feature The Avengers, loaded with star quality and credits and the works. You can check it out here below.

It’s not the most exciting image Marvel could have used for the poster heralding the film that has been in the works ever since Samuel L. Jackson stepped out of the shadows during the end credits scene in the first Iron Man, but it works well. I think it’s just a shame that the studio couldn’t have rounded up the entire cast at the same time for a poster photo shoot rather than put together this somewhat sloppily composed image.

Winter Soldier 1Winter Soldier #1
Written by Ed Brubaker
Art by Butch Guice
Color Artist: Bettie Breitweiser
Letters by VC’s Joe Caramagna
Cover by Lee Bermejo
Marvel Comics
Release Date: February 1, 2012
Cover Price: $2.99

For decades, we all thought that Bucky Barnes was one of the two characters in the Marvel Universe who WAS dead and would actually STAY dead. After reading Winter Soldier #1, I’m sure glad that surviving death is a regular occurrence in the Marvel U.

Here’s where Ed Brubaker‘s years of writing Bucky and Captain America pays off. Yes, it’s paid off for several years now, but this is different. If it was anyone else but Brubaker writing this series, it might not go over so well. But, Brubaker knows this character like the back of his hand and it shows. It almost feels like you’re reading an issue of Captain America where Bucky takes over as the central character.

Toy Fair NY is going on right now and we’re getting a look at a lot of cool toys that will be coming out in the next few months.

Marvel’s partnership with Lego was first announced at San Diego Comic-Con 2011, and showed off The Hulk, and now we have seen the rest of the team and their various vehicles. The press release from Marvel did not list an in-store date for these toys, but you can be sure they’ll hit stores leading up to the May 4th release date of the movie.

Spoiler Talk: Iron Man 2

Iron Man 2Well pretty much everyone across the world has been anticipating this movie since Iron Man came out in 2008. I was definitely among that group and had very high expectations for Iron Man. In short I did enjoy myself and had fun watching it but it definitely did not live up to my extremely high expectations. I really wish it had and I also really wish it didn’t have so much set up for other movies in it and was just what it should have been, a sequel to a really great superhero movie.

All that aside we are here to have fun so I won’t harp on all the things I didn’t like about the movie. What I loved about both Iron Man and Iron Man 2 is the graphics and they definitely hold up in this go around just as much as the first one. I still love Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark and I pretty much love Mickey Rourke and Sam Rockwell in anything, even though Rourke was underused and Rockwell was just an annoying less-successful copy of Tony Stark. I also really love the addition of scenes with Clark Gregg, the mysterious agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., and new characterization of Howard Stark, played by a new favorite of mine John Slattery.

I still am a little shaky on the casting choice for Black Widow because I don’t buy Scarlett Johansson being as badass as Black Widow should be. Might as well have just cast Megan Fox in my opinion. I also didn’t necessarily agree with re-casting James Rhodes with Don Cheadle and didn’t see why it was a requirement since no one can seem to give a straight answer as to why it was done. I still like Don Cheadle as Rhodey but I don’t think it was the best for the movie. I also wasn’t sure why Jon Favreau decided to give himself a more prevalent role.

While this isn’t the best made movie or even the most fun I have had in the theater this year, I do suggest going to watch it just for a fun romp and a few great fight scenes. I enjoyed the movie overall and hope that if and when there is a third, that it is back up to par with the first.

Anyway, enough of the boring stuff, let’s get on with the SPOILER TALK! The following is my spoiler minefield for Iron Man 2 so step through it and don’t forget to drop a few mines of your own at the end of the post in our comments section.

Iron Man 2

We’ve seen a few posters for Iron Man 2 so far and we’ve even seen a couple of amazing trailers, but another poster never hurt an eager fan’s eyeballs. Yahoo! Movies has debuted the brand new International poster for the much-anticipated sequel from Paramount Pictures.

Most of the other one-sheets have focused on something in particular, but this new poster has pretty much everything gathered together. Iron Man and Tony Stark, War Machine and James Rhodes, Black Widow, Pepper Potts, and of course, Whiplash — they’re all here to see. The only notable absentee is Justin Hammer, but more fans probably aren’t going to run to their local theater because he’s on the poster.

Head on over to the other side to see the new International poster.

Iron Man 2 Poster

The past couple of days have seen an insane amount of trailers hitting the web, and we’ll be trying to keep up with the charge with a little trailer bonanza action for you all.

First up is the brand new trailer for none other than Iron Man 2! The trailer came after some minor viral marketing hints and clues came together leading to the cut, but as has been discovered, sometimes it’s much easier to just avoid all that and wait for the goods instead of being dragged along Cloverfield style.

As you might expect, the trailer is about as bad ass as trailers come…no big shock for Iron Man. You get a peek at all of the characters like Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), and Justin Hammer (Sam Rockwell). You’ll also get a very clear look at Whiplash (Mickey Rourke), how his accent sounds, and just how powerful he is. The trailer is capped off by an interesting image involving War Machine or James Rhodes (Don Cheadle). Yes, we’ve seen him now in the poster and it’s no shock that he’s in the movie, BUT, we were unsure whether he and Stark would do battle or not. Here we see them fighting as a team, so take this as you will.

Don’t linger, now; continue on to check out the trailer immediately! Jump to Apple for the HD quality version.

Get Your First Look At Scarlett Johansson As Black Widow In ‘Iron Man 2’

Black Widow

Entertainment Weekly‘s new Comic Con preview issue is out this Friday and one of the goodies that it holds is our very first look at Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow in Jon Favreau‘s mega-sequel Iron Man 2. Click the image to go larger, and head over to EW for a look at the cover that features stars Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Mickey Rourke as Whiplash, and Johansson.

The image is pretty basic, but fans of the comic and the character alike will be itching to get a peek and compare how Johansson stacks up as the Widow — an assassin who is also known as Natasha Romanova and gets a job as Tony Stark’s new assistant after Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) is promoted to CEO of Stark Industries. As expected, some fairly thick jealousies begin to make their presence known.
