I’ve known artist Sam Tung for a number of years now; we even collaborated on a 5-page comic once upon a time. I knew he was working in Hollywood, but I was still shocked to see his name while waiting for the after-the-credits scene in Iron Man 3. Since Iron Man, Sam has worked on other big properties […]
My rewatch of the Marvel movies continues as we ponder just how toxic Tony Stark really is.
Since we’re all giddy over the Marvel Cinematic Universe today, the Amazon Exclusive Marvel Phase Two boxed set drops on Tuesday, December 8, with all new bonus content, film replicas and more. And each film has a new custom disc sleeve from artist Matt Ferguson. Before you get to the art here’s whats $199 buys you:
FINALLY! Marvel have announced that the Iron Man 3 DVD release will come with a short film called ‘Agent Carter’, which will see Hayley Atwell return to the character she played in Captain America for a one-off story. Also: Bradley Whitford’s in it! Steve MorrisTalking bunny, Little Mix enthusiast and co-publisher of The MNT, which […]
I finally got to see Iron Man 3 yesterday after a series of mishaps, and it was great fun, totally entertaining, and hurrah for Shane Black who gets to make movies again, and sometime Beat penpal Drew Pearce, who also gets to make more movies, and hooray for Robert Downey Jr. for being able to […]

The first Iron Man movie landed like a bomb blast in my personal pop culture universe, making me believe that superhero films could find their own voice while forming a dialogue with comics. Strict adaptations hadn’t been that great in the past and there needed to be another approach, one that had a deeper understanding […]
As noted by Indiewire, it appears that Iron Man 3 could have taken a radically different direction. Spoilers ahead! Steve MorrisTalking bunny, Little Mix enthusiast and co-publisher of The MNT, which you can find here. http://stardarkcity.wordpress.com/
Iron Man 3 weighed in with the second biggest movie opening of all times, but since it was right behind The Avengers, you could say it was all in the family still. The third movie staring Robert Downey Jr as Tony Stark opened with $175.3 million for the weekend (the Avengers did $207.4 mil) and has already raced to $680.1 million globally. That is a lot of cheddar.
