Tout L'Armour: Iron Patriot shots from Iron Man 3

Yo and behold – Iron Patriot spangles up proceedings in Iron Man 3. These on-set shots from the new Avengers movie (already in production – good work Marvel!!) reveal a very starry eyed surprise for one Mr Anthony Stark. Interesting choice of Bad Guy that might’ve suggested that yet again, the Mandarin has been put on the back-burner for the new movie. But no…

While Ben Kingsley and Guy Pearce have already been confirmed to take on nemesis roles in the upcoming film, it seems that there is another villainous character on the scene.

The discovery of Iron Patriot as a potential third villain (played by James Badge Dale) suggests things might be getting a little crowded on set for part 3. Considering that no comicx book adaptation with more than one full-on super villain has ever truly worked it seems like a weird gambit on Marvel’s behalf but if anyone’s gonna pull it off… watch this space.

Alright, you can stop checking the internet every day, the Official Trailer for Avengers is finally here. For all their faults there are still no other movies that make me cheer during trailers in the way that Marvel movies do. What can we infer from the trailer? Loki is a badass, Thor has a new outfit and Robert Downey Jr should be in every film.

Avengers is released in 2012.

Robert Downey Jr Hits Scarlett Johansson on Avengers Set

I don’t normally post news stories like this, but this is too much of a giggle not to bring up. According to sources on the Avengers set Robert Downey Jr accidentally punched Scarlett Johansson in the face last week because he “pressed the wrong button” on his Iron Man suit.

Downey Jr was waiting to film a scene for the movie and decided to have a fiddle with some of the buttons on his suit, it turns out that his wandering fingers landed on the switch that controls his arm, causing it to swing round and catch his co-star in the face, knocking her off the stage. Fortunately Johansson was not badly hurt and was apparently able to laugh off the incident.

According to the source Downey Jr was apparently somewhat sheepish about the incident: “Robert, who couldn”t help because he literally can”t move in that iron suit, was beside himself – he kept apologizing and saying, Oh, my God, I”m so sorry!”

Avengers is out next year.
