After years of waiting, "Iron Man 3" finally lands in theaters this week. If you are somehow still not psyched up about it, then these new MTV News interviews will definitely help. But seriously, how could you not be psyched? It's "Iron Man 3"!
Gwyneth Paltrow talked a in-depth to MTV News about Pepper Potts' expanded role in the film. While there's nothing revealed in this interview that hasn't already been shown in detail in the film's bajillion trailers and TV spots, I will still put up a spoiler warning for those brave few that have made it this close to the finish line with most of the film's surprises left intact. Added warning: the title of the interview is even a spoiler, so click through at your own risk. The rest of you should check out the interview below to hear Paltrow's thoughts on Pepper's character arc.
Earlier today we had look at the tender side of Tony Stark as he opened his heart to express his fears to his love, Pepper Potts in a new "Iron Man 3" clip. Now, thanks to this new clip we can balance out all that sweet stuff with some hardcore action.
In the newest clip from "Iron Man 3," Tony Stark reflects on life in the post Chitauri-invasion, post-Thor/Loki being Gods, post-"Marvel's The Avengers" world. He tells Pepper Potts, "Gods, aliens, other dimensions...I'm just a man in a can."
In the clip, he explains how she's both the only thing keeping him sane and the driving force behind him going a little bonkers. Tony can't sleep thinking about the imminent doom that's certain to present itself, and he wants to make sure his rock, Pepper, is always protected.
All bets are off once giant robot snake/worm things and aliens destroy New York City and the genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist just wants to keep his lady out of harms way.
"I've got these two characters, two of my favorite characters from the comic books," Joss reveals, "a brother/sister act. They're in the movie, that's exciting."
The most famous brother/sister act in the Marvel Universe is, without a doubt, Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch. Both are long-term Avengers, with the Scarlet Witch perhaps being the leading lady of the team. But here's why their apparent, guaranteed involvement is so surprising: they're mutants.
If Zack Snyder's "Man of Steel" can encapsulate the majesty and heart inherent to the Superman mythos as deftly as this unofficial title sequence does, then we are all in for a real treat come June 14th. Creative production company Will & Tale put together the sequence below. From having Kal-El's crash to Earth immortalized on YouTube to the close-ups of Clark Kent's trophy collection, these credits update the hero for modern times while still keeping that classic spirit intact. Even though I know this sequence won't be in "Man of Steel," I have to admit, it has gotten me a little more pumped for it.
Not to be outdone by Thor, "The Wolverine" has ensured that comic fans will spend at least two minutes today focusing specifically on Hugh Jackman's exploits in Japan. A new Japanese trailer for "The Wolverine" has debuted, and while it may not contain much in the way of new footage, what little new footage it does have is packed with ninjas. Oh yeah, ninjas. And not just any ninjas, but ninjas that ride motorcycles on rooftops. That's a whole new level of awesome.
Check out the Japanese "Wolverine" trailer below, and feel free to compare it to the film's previous trailers.

Forget summer blockbusters, it's time to start getting excited for the fall blockbusters. The first teaser trailer for "Thor: The Dark World" has arrived and it is mighty indeed. The teaser offers a lot for a teaser; there's plenty of Thor fighting, rad special effects (what's up with that gravity-defying truck?!), and appearances by the whole extended cast (hey Sif!). The film looks a lot more serious in tone, which is a totally valid move. It just means the trailer is seriously lacking in Kat Dennings zingers. And for all the Loki fans out there, get ready for the god of mischief's new, Pearl Jam-ish look when Thor makes him an offer.
Check out the full trailer below, and begin your anticipation... now!
Don Cheadle revealed in a video interview with Collider that he's open to reprising his role as James "Rhodey" Rhodes in more than just the "Iron Man" films. And while he doesn't outright confirm War Machine's involvement in any films past "Iron Man 3," he does offer some hope for the character's inclusion in "Avengers 2."
"I know that [there are] conversations that have been happening, so we’ll see what happens," he tells Collider. "If that's able to happen and it makes sense for the story, I'm sure it'll happen. And if not, it's fine. It has to work within the world and sort of the mythology of the whole Marvel universe."
Remember those eerie pictures of Jamie Foxx as Electro in "Amazing Spider-Man 2"? AOL just one-upped those photos with video footage of the actor stumbling through Times Square, all Electro-fied. The footage even has a shot of Foxx sans oversized hoodie, revealing his bald, blue head. But whether or not Foxx will be that blue on the big screen remains to be seen, since some of the photos and footage make him seem much more silver than blue. Check out the full video below.
