Remember that junior novelization that provided a few spoilers for "Iron Man 3" via its pictures? Well, the MTV Geek gang has stealthily acquired a copy of the junior novelization and... they've read it! Yeah, all 136 double-spaced pages! Armed with that information, which may or may not accurately represent what's coming to theaters in less than a month, they've made a list of 13 spoilers found in the teen novel's pages. Obviously this is your spoiler warning, as the whole point of the article is providing spoilers. You can find the full article here. Read at your own risk, faithful followers.
The new Marvel Cinematic Universe box set is the gift that keeps on giving. In addition to everything else it's given us this week, now we find out that there is even more deleted footage from "Marvel's the Avengers." Like, a lot more. The footage on the box set easily doubles the previously released deleted footage. Most of it comes from the film's intense final act; losing all of these vignettes and subplots really helped that last battle zip by. It's totally understandable that all of this stuff was lost, even if it does shed some light on the Chitauri's plan.
It appears as though every cast member lucky enough to survive "Welcome to the Tombs" has been rewarded with series regular status. Sunday's third season finale drew an audience of 12.4 million people, making it the most watched show of the night and last week. These new cast members will have a lot more eyeballs on them a lot more regularly when "The Walking Dead" comes back this October. Of course this news means that these characters did not get zombified in the season finale, so you may want to steer clear of it if you haven't caught up with the AMC hit.
January Jones told Collider that the diamond-skinned mutant Emma Frost won't be seen in 2014's "X-Men: Days of Future Past." After landing one of the more prominent roles in the fairly crowded "X-Men: First Class" (at least what was considered crowded before "Days of Future Past" turned into a mutant clown car), Jones has learned that Frost and Magneto have parted ways in the time lapsed between films.
"I haven’t been asked back," she told Collider. "It’s called 'Days of Future Past' or something. No, they’re going into another time period, or they’re going back and forth from different time period and Emma’s not in that. Not in what they’re doing." At least, despite her hesitation, Jones did get the title of the film right.
According to a tweet, director Josh Trank's "Fantastic Four" reboot is set to begin filming in Vancouver this September. The tweet comes courtesy of @lemon_buzz (a.k.a. Lindsay), a Vancouver native who may or may not have the inside info on Marvel's First Family. The tweet simply states pre-production has started for a September shoot, followed by hashtags shouting out yvrshoots (a website dedicated to Vancouver film and television shoots) and @olv (a Twitter account dedicated to information about film and television shooting locations). Lindsay followed up her initial tweet, saying that "Fantastic Four" is "just starting to hire [their] crew now." If you're in Vancouver, be on the lookout. The full tweet can be seen below.
The Marvel news keeps on keepin' on with this latest "Guardians of the Galaxy" rumor. Latino Review has a hunch that Thanos won't be working alone when he starts terrorizing our heroes at some point during Phase Two of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The latest Marvel movie rumor (in a day full of 'em) is that the Controller will be serving as Thanos' main henchman and ambassador in 2014's "Guardians of the Galaxy."
According to TVLine, AMC is looking to make "Roy Stark" a series regular as well. He is described as "a former army medic who is deeply haunted by his past -- pre- and post-zombie apocalypse. As a result, he’s a bit of a loner, although he maintains a charming/self-deprecating/confident public face." This would call for an actor in his early 30s to mid 40s.
The first three minutes cover "Iron Man 3," with new interviews and behind the scenes footage about the upcoming film, and the last two dive into the rest of Phase Two, with a taste of Phase Three's "Ant-Man" thrown in as well. Check out the full featurette and tons of new concept art, featuring detailed looks at Ant-Man, the Winter Soldier, Rocket Raccoon and Falcon, below.
"Iron Man 3" might be a month away from hitting theaters, but a junior novelization of the story has already been released. Some stills from the new book have been posted online that reveal key plot points from the upcoming movie.
Obviously if you're looking to avoid spoilers you'd be advised to not click below the jump. But the images that @antovolk (via Comic Book Movie) posted do reveal an interesting direction that "Iron Man 3" is headed in. Check them out after the break.
