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.
