Iron Man 3 (Movie Review)

Headed to the movies today? Is ‘Iron Man 3’ in IMAX 3D on your menu list? If you are 25 and under then you are going to absolutely go bonkers for it. But if you are over 30, the fireworks will be a bit more restrained. You see, when one gets older, kid jokes are only so funny. You need a much more layered joke or gag to trigger the laughs. ‘Iron Man 3’ as fun and funny as it is, will do a better job playing to the teenage and young adult crowds than the mature grown ups preferring to see another sequel of The Dark Knight.

Maximiliano Hernández: "I’m honored to be part of Item 47"

While we are anxiously waiting for ‘The Avengers’ DVD/Blu-ray to come out on September 25th, we have for you and exclusive interview with Maximilliano Hernandez. A New Yorker that comes from Honduran parents and appears not only in ‘The Avengers’, but also in a Marvel-shot- short film that will debut in the DVD/Blu-ray called ‘Item 47’. The actor has appeared in ‘Thor’ in the character of Jasper Sitwell, and also did a short film in the Blu-ray for ‘Thor’ called ‘The Consultant’. He shows us some of his acting chops in the clip attached and surely he will come to be known in Hollywood, and although it is not known if he will be in ‘The Avengers 2’ yet, we are crossing our fingers for him like good brothers and sisters.

Obama and Spidey campaigning together for ’09?

Obama and Spidey campaigning together for '09?

Marvel Comics just announced that issue No. 583 of “The Amazing Spider-Man” will hit the stands on Jan. 14 with two different covers, one of them a special Inauguration Day edition that shows the wallcrawler with the president-elect.

It’s been quite the fanboy election. There was talk that Obama is a devotee of “Conan the Barbarian” and other Marvel Comics, and then he was also the star of a graphic-novel biography that was surprisingly poignant and well-executed. There’s also that memorable portrait of him by comic superstar Alex Ross that you can see below.

Marvel Comics executives said it was a natural to put the 44th president in a heroic context.

“When we heard that President-Elect Obama is a collector of Spider-Man comics, we knew that these two historic figures had to meet in our comics’ Marvel Universe,” says Marvel’s Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada.  “Historic moments such as this one can be reflected in our comics because the Marvel Universe is set in the real world.  A Spider-Man fan moving into the Oval Office is an event that must be commemorated in the pages of ‘Amazing Spider-Man.’”

There’s plenty of presidential history in the comics, such as the time that JFK appeared in the pages of Superman (the issue was written and drawn before Kennedy’s 1963 assassination but actually hit stands after that dark day in Dallas) and Richard Nixon’s 1972 cameos in “The Fantastic Four” and in “The Incredible Hulk.”
