Iron Man 3’s trailer teaser was released yesterday, and now we have new stills from the full trailer and some additional plot details from Marvel’s President of Production.

Marvel’s President of Production, Kevin Feige, recently sat down with USA Today for an interview in which he reveals quite a few plot details about Marvel’s next film Iron Man 3. He also brought along four new stills from the trailer that will be released tomorrow and a teaser poster for the new film.

First we see Pepper holding one of the various Iron Man masks in a heap of rumble, which can only be what’s left of Tony Stark’s cliff-side mansion after it is [spoiler] blown up.

“Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) is left to survey the damage caused when the Mandarin attacks Tony in a very personal manner in Iron Man 3.”

Next, we see Pepper embracing Tony while suited up, but from what we’ve seen in the trailer teaser, Tony’s personal life appears to take a terrible turn when Pepper is taken by the enemy and possibly tortured.

“The connection between Tony Stark and Pepper Potts began in the two previous Iron Man movies and grew even more in The Avengers, and the new film will be filled with trials and tribulations. Potts plays a big part in this film.”

Tony Stark obviously has a new suit in this film, which you can see again in the image below, and looks have some new Stark tools at his disposal (the headgear).

“The goal with Iron Man 3 is to again prove that all of our single heroes are as interesting alone as they are when they’re all together in an Avengers movie.”

Last but certainly not least, we see Tony in his new Mark XLVII armor, which fans were a bit worried about when we saw it back at Comic-Con 2012, but we have to say – it looks quite good here and in the trailer teaser. We’ll have to wait pass judgement when the full trailer hits tomorrow.


“Seven Iron Man suits in total have been seen in two Iron Man movies and The Avengers, but the all-new one in Iron Man 3 represents the most advanced version yet – particularly in how Tony Stark suits up.”

According to USA Today’s interview, Stark has revolutionized the way he can suit up in the next Iron Man film. We’ve seen him progress from having to stand still for minutes at a time and have the armor attached in the first film, to seeing the suit fly on to him guided by a tech-bracelet in The Avengers. Feige says that, “Now we see he’s invented a technology that allows him to basically have the suit arrive to him anywhere at any time, piece by piece, and it doesn’t always work at first.”

We also get our first good look at Sir Ben Kingsley as the Mandarin, thanks to Entertainment Weekly:

As for why the Mandarin wasn’t cast as a Chinese actor, like in the comics, Feige says that, “It’s less about his specific ethnicity than the symbolism of various cultures and iconography that he perverts for his own end.”

Finally, we have a teaser poster for Iron Man 3, with Tony standing among all of his suit creations, appearing to ready himself to be assembled.

Another trailer teaser has been released, be sure to check out Guy Pearce’s first appearance.

Iron Man 3’s full theatrical trailer will be released tomorrow, so be sure to check back then where we’ll get a real look at Marvel’s new film. Iron Man 3 hits theaters May 3, 2013.

Fox has moved the third and final Maze Runner movie to 2018.

The cast and crew were only a few days into filming The Death Cure in March when Dylan O’Brien suffered serious injuries on set, prompting the production to be put on a break so he could recover. When his recovery ended up taking longer than expected, the production was put on an indefinite hold.

Now, a plan to resume the shoot seems to be in place. Fox announced Friday The Death Cure will be hitting theaters January 12, 2018, which is nearly a year later than the original February 2017 date. The last Maze Runner movie, The Scorch Trials, opened last September.

Production on The Maze Runner: The Death Cure likely won’t resume until late this year or early next. Dylan O’Brien has already committed to another movie which is expected to shoot this summer.

Getting the rest of the cast and crew back together to shoot The Maze Runner finale may be a bit of a challenge since they may’ve committed to other projects that were supposed to be shooting after they finished The Maze Runner. However, the new Death Cure release date suggests Fox has found a time that’ll work for everyone.

Tom Cavanagh will return to The Flash in season 3 as a series regular, though which character he’ll be playing remains to be seen.

Cavanagh has had a unique acting challenge on The Flash, playing a different version of his character in each of the first two seasons — and now it looks like he’ll be doing it for a third season in a row, as EW confirms that he will be a series regular in season 3.

In season 1, Cavanagh played Eobard Thawne, aka the Reverse Flash, in Harrison Wells’ body. Thawne, after traveling back in time, killed the original Wells and took his form to expedite the development of the particle accelerator so he could return to his own time. Thawne was written out of existence in the season 1 finale, though, leaving fans curious about who Cavanagh would be playing in season 2.

This past season, Cavanagh played the Earth-2 version of Harrison Wells, nicknamed Harry, who was a significantly different character from the man we thought was Wells in season 1. However, in the season 2 finale, Harry and his daughter, Jesse, returned to Earth-2.

So, who does that leave for Cavanagh to play in the third season?

My guess would be the Earth-1 version of Harrison Wells, who we only briefly met in a flashback in season 1. Why the original Wells? Because in the final moments of the season 2 finale, Barry traveled back in time and stopped Thawne from killing his mother. This means the timeline in which Thawne killed Wells and took his form no longer exists, so Earth-1 Wells would be the version left alive.

Assuming he does play the original version of the character, the one who was killed and had his identity stolen, it will be interesting to see Cavanagh inhabit yet another version of the character. While we already met Wells briefly in the flashback to his death, that was a small sample size. I look forward to seeing him differentiate another Wells from those he’s already played for entire seasons.

Are you excited to see more Tom Cavanagh on ‘The Flash’?

‘Glee’ alum Mark Salling indicted on child pornography charges

The actor is facing a lot of jail time.

4:55 pm EDT, May 27, 2016

Following an arrest in December, Glee star Mark Salling (who played Puck on the Fox series) is now facing child pornography charges.

A federal grand jury has charged the 33-year-old actor with two counts of child pornography after a search of his home turned up “thousands” of images and videos involving children, TMZ reports. He will be arraigned in early June.

Salling’s charges potentially come with big sentences: 5 to 20 years in prison for receiving child porn, and another 20 years for possessing it.

After Glee went off air last year, Salling has worked on only one project: The action movie Adi Shankar’s Gods and Secrets which is slated to hit theaters later this year.

The actor has been in trouble with the law before — he was sued for sexual battery in 2013.
