    Immersed in Movies: Shane Black and Kevin Feige Talk Going Over the Edge in 'Iron Man 3,' Stark's Demons, VFX

    With "Iron Man 3" already smashing box-office records internationally ahead of its domestic release Friday, grabbing more than $300 million in nine days (including the highest opening ever in China), Marvel's post-"Avengers" Phase 2 plan is off to a smashing start. The trick apparently was giving Ro...

    5 Scripts That Made Shane Black Hollywood's Hottest Writer In The 1990s

    “Iron Man 3” has already amassed more than $300 million worldwide and is on target to become the highest grossing opening weekend in the United States ever (outdoing even last summer’s “The Avengers”). This is quite a coup for director/co-writer Shane Black, who, back in the '90s, during a kind of s...

    Well-Forged: Iron Man 3

    Sequels are a tricky business. I thought "Iron Man 2" squandered much of the good will the original 2008 film, and its oddly inspired casting of Robert Downey, Jr., engendered.

    25 Blockbuster Threequels: Did They Sink Or Save Their Franchises?

    A lot's been written over the years about sequels -- when they go right and bring us a welcome return to characters and themes we'd flocked to see the first time out and, more often, when they do not, and instead deliver diminishing returns in everything except box office terms. But what of the seco...

    Quicksilver & The Scarlet Witch Confirmed For 'The Avengers 2' (For Now)

    So, remember just over a week ago when Joss Whedon not-so-subtly teased that his script for "The Avengers 2" script contained, "two of my favorite characters from the comic book, a brother/sister act"? While he didn't come right out and say it, speculation centered on Quicksilver and The Scarlet Wi...

    'Iron Man 3' Review and Roundup: Downey, Jr. in Top Form as Smart Superhero (TRAILER)

    Marvel's "Iron Man 3" finally opens stateside--after breaking box office records overseas-- on May 3. This one marks a huge improvement on the disappointing second, which had to carry water for the upcoming "Avengers," and was, director Jon Favreau has admitted, like "juggling chainsaws."

    How Marvel's Movie Risks Paid Off & How The Studio System Could Stand To Pay Attention To Them

    In Steven Soderbergh's state of cinema address earlier this week, he remarked that, "Art is a very elegant problem solving model." He went on to describe his ideal model for a studio: "I think if I were going to run a studio I’d just be gathering the best filmmakers I could find and sort of let them...

    Tony Stark Jumps Out Of A Plane In Clip From 'Iron Man 3' Plus New TV Spot

    “Iron Man 3” may not have opened domestically yet, but it has opened in near enough 80% of international markets and grossed a not inconsiderable $195 million already -ahead of last year's record-breaking “The Avengers."
