TMNT

by Ryan Rigley

With the numerous film, TV, and video game incarnations of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles out there, it's easy to forget that the four turtles in a half shell actually made their original debut within the pages of a comic book. Last week, the release date for the new live-action film produced by Michael Bay and directed by Jonathan Liebsman—latest in a long line of spin-offs from Peter Laird and Kevin Eastman's original comic—was pushed back to August 8th, 2014.

Seeing as how that date is right after Marvel's possible blockbuster "Guardians of the Galaxy," one might assume that Bay and Liebsman have the utmost confidence that their "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" will shell shock audiences across the country. But before we feast our eyes upon the latest "Turtles" adaptation, we thought it best to look back on the first—the original "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" cartoon, to be precise. Reminisce with us past the jump!

We're still a month away from seeing the new Marvel One-Shot short film "Agent Carter" in full, but at least we have another clip of Hayley Atwell in action to hold us over.

In the new clip, the secret agent dons a gas mask in order to snatch a vial containing what we can only assume is the mysterious Zodiac. But things don't go exactly as planned, because it's an action-adventure short and the "boy, that mission was easy!" style of storytelling isn't really interesting.

The full short film will be released on the "Iron Man 3" Blu-ray on September 24th, which also contains featurettes, a ton of deleted scenes and laughs aplenty.

If you haven't seen "Iron Man 3" by this point and are still somehow concerned about spoilers, then look away. I'd hate to ruin this for you a month before the Blu-ray is released, okay? So, spoilers.

This new deleted scene gives Ben Kingsley's Mandarin a little more time to shine, with Stark and Rhodey begrudgingly going along with one of his hairbrained schemes. After a bit of intrigue, the clip—which is twice as long as the gag reel clip we saw earlier this week—devolves into it's own gag reel, with Don Cheadle and Kingsley tossing out alternate take options at a rapid-fire pace. It's a pretty hilarious series of exchanges and while we see why it was cut from the film, we're super glad we get to see it now.

Kick-Ass

by Brett White

Bringing the costumed characters of "Kick-Ass 2" to life proved to be a bit more challenging than other acting gigs, as the cast had to get into the mindset of real human beings ready to dish out harsh vigilante justice—without the cushy comfort that super powers afford. There's no gamma radiation or Norse mythology in the street-level world of "Kick-Ass," just pure character and—in the case of Jim Carrey's Colonel Stars and Stripes—balls.

"[Jim Carrey] brings such enthusiasm and such great ideas [to the role]," revealed Aaron Taylor-Johnson to MTV News' Josh Horowitz. "He creates characters like that and it's incredible. You're seeing something come to life, and he creates it. It's about being ballsy and making big decisions and being bold [enough] like that to stick with it." While Carrey stuck with the character on-set, keeping the Colonel's drawl consistent in between takes, he abandoned the film and its accompanying press tour citing a change of heart.

With "Iron Man 3's" Blu-ray right around the corner, it's no wonder that we seem to be getting a sneak peek a day at the release's special features. Following up the first look at the film's gag reel comes this minute long peek at the "Calling the Suit" featurette, which details the elaborate work put into the action film's upbeat opening scene.

Robert Downey Jr. had to undergo training to handle the extensive wirework involved in creating Iron Man's hand thruster effect. The clip below reveals that he even got to plan out some of Tony's dance moves/command gestures, once again confirming that Downey is every bit as suave as Mr. Stark.

You can check out the clip below, and keep an eye out for "Iron Man 3" when it hits shelves on September 24th.

HIt-Girl

Actors go on talk shows to promote their latest film all the time, but I assure you that Chloe Grace Moretz's "Conan" appearance from last night is much more dangerous than normal. The actress was there to promote "Kick-Ass 2," a hyper-violent action film that has definitely left the 16 year old actress with way more knowledge about fighting and handling weapons than most teens her age possess.

Case in point: a butterfly knife, or a Balisong.

Moretz busted one out at host Conan O'Brien's request during their interview, and then proceeded to wow the audience with her fancy flip work. Moretz professed to being a bit rusty with her skills but, to those of us who can barely handle butter knives with competence, she sure looked like a pro. You can check out the knife demo clip and the rest of the interview—including Moretz's story about encountering a drunk Hit-Girl fan at a Paul McCartney concert—after the jump.

There's one thing that literally every superhero film has in common: a scene where the superhero introduces himself. The folks over at Screen Junkies have put together a supercut of every single superhero introduction from 1989's "Batman" up through to 2012's "Amazing Spider-Man." In the quick clip, you get Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney, and Christian Bale all claiming to be Batman, and both Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield calling dibs on Spider-Man.

The supercut also acts as a time capsule for all of the non-Batman superhero films from the '90s—none of which starred actual big name superheroes. Remember Blankman, Darkman, Meteorman, the Rocketeer, the Phantom, Barb Wire and the Mystery Men? Yeah, get ready for a blast from the past. Also: Howard the Duck warning, everybody.

"Iron Man 3," the first and biggest film of the summer, is coming to Blu-ray on September 24th. And now we know that, just as "Marvel's the Avengers" before it, "Iron Man 3" will include a gag reel—hopefully with moments as meme-able as Cobie Smulders' epic "Coulsooooooon!" yell.

A clip from the gag reel, which I'm sure will be at least three times as long with three times as many chortles and botched line reads, has surfaced thanks to Yahoo Movies. It's well worth your time, if only to hear Robert Downey Jr. say "Red Snapper." "Iron Man 3" also comes with the short film "Agent Carter," which you can get a taste of here.

Everyone had better hope that the God of Thunder has a sense of humor, otherwise he might be tempted to bring the hammer down on a few jokesters out there. In the wake of the new "Thor: The Dark World" trailer, a pair of comedy videos have arrived that take the wind out of the mighty Avenger's sails.

The first one comes from "Conan," where Conan O'Brien points out something that was just a little off about the trailer. What took us so long to notice it?? After the jump, you can check out the "Arrested Development"/Thor mash-up that's filled with enough in-jokes to charm Lucille and Loki both. If you decide to spend your free time campaigning for an ongoing "Thorested Development" web series, I would not blame you.

Check out "Thorested Development" after the jump!

Thor Alan Taylor

by Brett White

The most recent trailer for "Thor: The Dark World" showed that the realm of Asgard has changed just a bit since we last saw it in 2011's "Thor." Things are a bit edgier, tenser, and rougher for the Odinson and company this time around, and all of that is due to the involvement of "Game of Thrones" director Alan Taylor.

The new "Thor" director was in Anaheim, California this past weekend for Disney's D23 Expo, where the next Marvel movie got quite a bit of attention. In an interview with IGN, the director revealed that his new job directing Loki isn't so different from his old job directing Lannisters.

"In both cases, it's using the conceit of a fantastical, alien world to sort of make fresh what is really a domestic drama," said Taylor. "In 'Game of Thrones,' seeing Tyrion battle with his sister, seeing the relationship between children and their fathers, it's all stuff we can relate to."
