As 'Iron Man 3' gets set to hit theaters this weekend, Joss Whedon continues to tease 'Avengers 2' with public comments. Just a few days after he mentioned he's adding a brother/sister team to the upcoming sequel, comes Whedon's comments on Robert Downey, Jr.'s potential retirement and the "big finale" coming in 'Avengers 2' as the superhero team gets ready to face off against Thanos.
Although it doesn't open in the United States for another week and change, 'Iron Man 3' has already started rolling out internationally, garnering its fair share of rave reviews. While some audiences are already getting the chance to see the whole movie, we simply have to sit back and play the waiting game. Well, at least the waiting game involves a new behind-the-scenes look and footage from the film!
'The Avengers' made over $1.5 billion (with a b) at the box office, which is enough to make it one of the biggest films of all-time. But Marvel executives weren't the only ones making money off the film. Star Robert Downey, Jr. confirms he made over $50 million to star in 'The Avengers' adding, "Isn't that crazy?" Yeah, pretty much.
A new 'Iron Man 3' TV spot has arrived and it has us wondering: is there such thing as too much marketing? After all, it feels like at least half of the highly anticipated Marvel adventure has been released through trailers, spots and clips. That's a thought to chew on as you watch this new footage (which, like the others, is quite cool).
As this new 'Iron Man 3' TV spot reminds us, the latest Tony Stark adventure is only a month away, but we don't need to tell you that. We know you and everyone you know are going to see it. However, this new spot does give us our first solid look at one of the more unique threats we've seen in the Marvel movie universe: The Mandarin's super soldiers!
