Mission: Impossible Ghost: Protocol was a somewhat of a reboot for the film franchise. At first it was once thought that the film would see Tom Cruise pass the torch to his fellow co-star Jeremy Renner, who would launch a new Mission: Impossible franchise. But since the film proved that Cruise is still a viable star, he is signed on to star in Mission: Impossible 5 after all. With him, Renner, and Simon Pegg all set to reprise their respective roles in the Christopher McQuarrie-directed sequel, we can expect to see some fresh faces to star in some new and possibly villainous roles.
Of those faces, Alex Baldwin and Rebecca Ferguson are reportedly in talks to appear in the film. Hit the jump to see who they will play.
There were mixed reactions to the surprising twist of Ben Kingsley‘s the Mandarin in Iron Man 3. Some of us were impressed with it, while others weren’t. Without getting into spoiler territory, let’s just say that not everything is as it seemed. So we will get to see the return of his character in Marvel’s upcoming one-shot All Hail The King.
You can see some images from the one-shot below. Minor spoilers will follow after the jump.

Now that The Avengers has come and gone, effectively ending Phase One of the Marve Cinematic Universe, it’s time to kick off Phase Two, which will include sequels to Thor, Captain America, The Avengers, and newcomer Guardians of the Galaxy. But what better way to start off the second phase than with the franchise that began the first: Iron Man.
Iron Man 3 sees Robert Downey Jr. reprising his role as the eccentric billionaire with a heart of gold-ish (at least plated) and high tech armor for everything else, Tony Stark. Not returning this time around, however, is director Jon Favreau, who helmed the first two installments. Favreau appears in the movie as Stark’s former bodyguard and new head of security Happy Hogan and remains an executive producer, but it’s Shane Black taking a seat in the director’s chair this time around, which made perfect sense given that he’d previously worked with Downey Jr. on the excellent Kiss Kiss Bang Bang.
The first official trailer for Marvel Studios’ next summer superhero extravaganza Iron Man 3 isn’t set to premiere until this Tuesday, October 23, but thanks to an interactive effort by fans of the movie’s Facebook page, we’re getting a brief sneak preview of the trailer now.
You can check out the 18-second video here below.
It looks like the launch trailer will feature a great deal of the footage that was shown during the Iron Man 3 panel at the San Diego Comic-Con back in July.
