"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.

What's your favorite crack up from the "Iron Man 3" gag reel? Let us know in the comments below or hit us up on Twitter!

Even if Loki isn't appearing in "Avengers: Age of Ultron," it appears that you just can't keep the God of Mischief down. The Avengers nemesis, played by Tom Hiddleston, pretty much stole the show in the latest "Thor: The Dark World" trailer, and it looks like there will be even more of the troublemaker thanks to a few re-shoots and pick-up scenes recently added to the film.

"We are literally shooting things this week," revealed Taylor in an interview with Collider at Disney's D23 Expo this past weekend. "Anthony Hopkins is back in town and we're going to be getting some stuff from him. We continue to, what [Marvel Studios president] Kevin Feige calls, 'plus' the movie... There are some tonal pushes and shoves. There are a couple relationships that we need to end the right way."

Could Loki be one half of one of the aforementioned relationships?

Wonder Woman

by Ryan Rigley

With a "Justice League" movie planned for 2016, Warner Bros. has been doing everything within their power to make sure audiences are well acquainted with their DC superheroes before the big team-up franchise. In 2015, Zack Snyder will be helming a "Superman vs. Batman" movie, which may be loosely based on Frank Miller's "The Dark Knight Returns." Before that, the CW plans to produce a new "Flash" TV series which may or may not tie into the upcoming "Flash" film.

With all of these DC capes flying around, we here at Splash Page can't help but wonder when Wonder Woman's time to shine will be. After all, the Amazing Amazon is one of the founding members of the Justice League and even one of the core three members—right next to Superman and Batman. Clearly it's only a matter of time before Diana Prince gets her own feature film. So what say we start talking about which Wonder Woman stories are fit for the silver screen?

Thor Figure

by Brett White

If watching Chris Hemsworth swing his hammer around in the latest "Thor: The Dark World" trailer doesn't quench your Thor thirst, Diamond Select Toys gives you the option to take a tiny version the Asgardian home with you.

The figure, which will be available in October, depicts Thor in his new costume—sans sleeves that is. The figure also highlights a change in the god's color scheme; he now rocks gold accents on his armor instead of silver ones. To the back issues—is this canon?! But this change has slipped past our attention up until now, mostly because the set photos show Thor's armor being put to good use, thus dulling the colors significantly.

You can check out the figure below, alongside its base that combines with the upcoming Jane Foster figure.

Rocket Raccoon

by Ryan Rigley

Despite the rumors of Vin Diesel portraying the heroic synthezoid known as the Vision in "Avengers: Age of Ultron," it would appear as though the "Fast & Furious" actor may be up for a different Marvel role entirely. Earlier this week, Diesel changed the cover photo on his personal Facebook page to that of Groot from "Guardians of the Galaxy."

Since then, fans have been speculating as to whether or not the one time "Iron Giant" could be providing his vocal talents for the Guardians' titular talking tree. After all, it's entirely possible that Diesel had assumed Disney would be officially announcing the role at the D23 Expo this past weekend. Be that as it may, there is still one very important Guardian that has yet to be cast: Rocket Raccoon. Who could play the lovable yet deadly creature? Here are five picks!

Kick-Ass 2

by Brett White

Unlike most every other PG-13 comic book movie, "Kick-Ass 2" is gleefully R-rated for its excessive potty mouth and next-level violence. That's kind of the whole point of "Kick-Ass 2," and that accurately captures the tone of Mark Millar and John Romita Jr.'s mature readers comic book. But, as writer and director Jeff Wadlow and actor Christopher Mintz-Plasse revealed to Digital Spy in a very NSFW and spoiler/trigger-filled interview, there are some things about the comics that simply could not be put on film.

"It was just a little too much for this kind of world," said Mintz-Plasse, who plays the Mother F---er—a comic book character that perpetuates some of the most vile acts ever put on paper. "Because this still is a comic book world, and the violence is—even though it's bloody—it is over the top and cartoony in a way." Mintz-Plasse mentions that the inclusion of those particular scenes would have brought the tone down, which wouldn't have worked well when contrasted with the hyper violence and irreverent humor.

Flash

by Ryan Rigley

The TV series starring the Fastest Man Alive just can't come fast enough! Since Warner Bros. announced their plans to make a "Flash" TV series, set to premiere on the CW before the "Flash" movie, the minds of "Flash" fans everywhere have been racing with possibilities.

While this isn't the first time that the Scarlet Speedster has starred in his own TV series, there's no denying that this new "Flash" series will be infinitely better than its predecessor—especially considering the fact that it could potentially link to the newly-developed DC cinematic and/or television universe. The possibilities are virtually endless! With that, we here at Splash Page present to you a list of five Flash stories that we hope to see in the new "Flash" TV series.

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."

Guardians of the Galaxy

by Brett White

So today's been a pretty big day for "Guardians of the Galaxy." First there was the rumor that Groot may be the tree that walks like a man and talks like a Vin Diesel, and then there was the first look at a heavily-disguised Glenn Close from the film's first set photos. Then the "Guardians" news hat trick—thirty seconds of the unfinished SDCC footage leaked online, after being captured on a camera phone at Disney's D23 Expo over the weekend.

And yeah, it was awesome. And yes, it has been taken down. But for those of you who missed it, there are plenty of screen grabs and GIFs on Tumblr—because of course there are. Due to the total awesomeness of the footage and our undying love of raccoons with heavy artillery, we've taken the principle cast as seen in the footage and compared them to their comic book counterparts. Check it out after the jump!
