Joss Whedon talked to "Entertainment Tonight" while walking the red carpet at Sunday's MTV Movie Awards and managed to talk about pretty much everything we would want him to talk about. The entire interview can be seen below, but I've painstakingly transcribed the most interesting bits for your at-work-without-headphones enjoyment.
On the rest of the Phase 2 Marvel films: "I've gotten to look at everything and see behind the curtain on all the stuff. And Kevin Feige has a really clear vision and it runs through all these movies. They're all very different but they are all what the next story should be."
On his full-time consulting gig with Marvel: "I'm actually consulting for Marvel in general, and some of that is protecting myself. 'Wait a minute, I need that!' But most of it is just trying to make sure that everything is as good as it can be because we're all pulling for each other."
The forthcoming sci-fi film "Oblivion" opens in theaters on April 19th, but you can get look at home the film went from a Radical Comics pitch to a big screen epic starring Tom Cruise right now at MTV Geek. In the video below, Radical Comics' Art Director Jeremy Berger shows just how close the original illustrated novel concepts from filmmaker Joseph Kosinksi's ("TRON Legacy") are to the finished vision featured on-screen.
Gwyneth Paltrow stopped by "The Rachael Ray Show" earlier this week and brought a new clip from "Iron Man 3" with her. The clip is a bit cerebral, literally, as it takes us inside of Aldrich Killian's mind. For a clip paired with Paltrow, it's really focused on Guy Pearce's Killian. The clip does give us a first look at how Extremis has been adapted from the source material, and involves the best science-as-flirting technique we've seen since Jeff Goldblum explained Chaos Theory to Laura Dern in "Jurassic Park." Check out a low-quality version of the clip below.
Yesterday we reported that comedian Patton Oswalt had extensive thoughts about how he could work himself into the Marvel movies as a villain. Little did MTV Geek know that Oswalt would soon make his debut as a Nolan-esque version of the Batman villain the Penguin. The video contains some graphic violence and some naughty words, so it's pretty NSFW unless you work at a pretty chill place. It's also hilarious. The video also stars comedy giants Pete Holmes and Matt McCarthy as Batman and Commissioner Gordon.
FROM MTV GEEK MTV Geek caught up with Patton Oswalt on the set of Adult Swim's "The Heart, She Holler" and talked to the comedian about a subject very near and dear to his heart: super hero movies. Specifically, which role he would like to play in a superhero film. Oswalt's clearly given this topic a lot of thought, much like every other living and breathing comic book fan, and he reveals quite a complex plan designed to stealthily integrate a wide variety of costumed villains into the Marvel mythos. You can check out MTV Geek's video below.
It may not have much in the way of clear footage, but this new TV spot for "Man of Steel" still sheds a lot of light on the upcoming Superman film. The clip features an ominous, static-y image of General Zod wearing his alien helmet and giving Superman an ultimatum. The ultimatum threatens to put the people of Earth in harm's way, thus giving us a glimpse at Zod's master plan. Just judging by this threatening voice over alone, "Man of Steel" seems to have much more punching-potential than "Superman Returns." The spot also ditches the previous trailers' more contemplative and serious tone, switching that out for a creepier, more thrilling angle. I have to say, this is the clip that finally got me excited about "Man of Steel."
Check out General Zod's full message below.

If you missed out the exclusive "Iron Man 3" clip debuted during last night's MTV Movie Awards, you're in luck! The clip is online and awesome. The awards show, which gave "Marvel's the Avengers" a Quinjet full of awards, contained an extensive look at the assault on Tony Stark's oceanside property. The clip gives us a look at Tony Stark's new prototype armor and features one of the most original uses of a grand piano ever captured on film.
In addition to the spectacular line-up of celebrities and pulse-poundingcategories, the 2013 MTV Movie Awards will contain never before seen footage of "Iron Man 3." As the film is still a few weeks away from its release date, the MTV Movie Awards are guaranteeing that you will get your needed dosage of Tony Stark action. To whet your appetite for this weekend's never before seen footage, check out the teaser below. The clip acts as a "greatest hits" montage of all the amazing "Iron Man 3" footage we've seen so far, and features a monologue from the Mandarin (oh, to hear new words said in Ben Kingsley's signature tone) wherein the bad guy gives Iron Man a choice.
"The Walking Dead" might have just completed its third season, but Andy Richter is making sure that the show stays close to our hearts. For a segment on "Conan," Richter took a tour of Atlanta dressed as one of the AMC show's zombies.
It seems that Richter stopped by "The Walking Dead's" make-up trailer while he was in Georgia and got the full walker treatment. The application of his new look took two hours, so it's no wonder that he didn't want to wash it off when he went to other culturally significant places in Atlanta like the aquarium, the High Museum of Art and the CNN building. The reactions of other visitors to his zombified look aren't as extreme as we would have expected, but they're still pretty hilarious. Check out the full video below.
