Anyone who has been following superhero movies knows that Robert Downey, Jr. has signed on to return as Tony Stark in 'The Avengers 2' and 'The Avengers 3,' but his future as Iron Man beyond that is up in the air. It's unlikely that Downey (who will be 53 when the third 'Avengers' film hits) will occupy the role forever, and Marvel hasn't been shy about recasting the character should the need ever arise.
And that brings us to the weird news bit of the day: Mark Wahlberg wants to takeover the part.
We just can't get enough of Iron Man and his armored adventures, so we've decided to feature the Mark VI suit from 'Iron Man 2' in today's Cosplay of the Day! You can never go wrong with a classic Iron Man suit.
Marvel's 'Iron Man 2' may have proven the least well-received of the trilogy, possibly even the cinematic franchise at large, but there can be no denying that Sam Rockwell's entertaining Justin Hammer character had clearly been shoved aside by 'Iron Man 3,' and likely any future films. If Robert Downey Jr. isn't interested in 'Iron Man 4' however, might Rockwell look to reprise the character in Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.?'
Now that 'Iron Man 3' has officially passed the $400 million mark at the box office, Tony Stark's third solo adventure is just about to leave theaters and head straight to your home media collection. In a few months, you'll be able to purchase Shane Black's delightful superhero adventure for yourself on DVD and Blu-ray, but will it be worth it? Marvel has released the details of the package to help you decide if the special features will push this one into the "must buy" column for you.
It's only recently been officially declared summertime, but for many the season has been in full bloom since the first weekend of May when 'Iron Man 3' pummeled everything in its path. Now, as the months roll on, the superhero everyone is talking about is Superman, thanks to 'Man of Steel.' So which superhero packed the most punch for you?
