Robert Downey Jr.’s In ‘Captain America 3′ Now

"Hey, do I look retarded in this new suit?" "Yup." "You jerk!

Robert Downey Jr. Will Make ‘Iron Man 4′ If Mel Gibson Directs

"That's some sturdy looking Jew metal." "Hahahaha, what?"

Except now he's testing them even further by…

Comic-Con: ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron,’ And Oh Yeah, ‘Ant-Man,’ I Guess

Considering they have no less than 20 movies coming out at a time, Marvel gets the prime time-slot in Comic-Con's Hall H where this year they wheeled out the entire cast of The Avengers: Age of Ultron - minus pregnant ScarJo - after an awkwardly brief Ant-Man panel.

James Spader Is Ultron In ‘The Avengers: Age of That Person I Just Said’

Just the other day I was saying out loud to myself, "You know who would make the perfect Ultron in The Avengers: Age of Ultron? Someone who's been in a movie where people get in car accidents and then have sex with the wounds caused by said car accident." Not even five seconds later, Sta…

If Your Child Doesn’t Recognize Robert Downey Jr., You’ve Failed As A Parent

Here's Robert Downey Jr. taking a break from filming The Judge in Massachusetts to meet 18-month-old Jaxson who was under the impression he was going to meet Iron Man, but instead, got this stranger and appears to have reacted exactly like I would've so I hope somebody changed him afterwards.

Gwyneth Paltrow Made The ‘Iron Man 3′ Premiere All About Gwyneth Paltrow. Of Course.

"I did have my vagina varnished in Tuscany. Thank you for noticing." Judging by early reviews, Iron Man 3 not only makes up for Iron Man 2, but is a well-crafted ending to Robert Downey Jr.'s tenure as Tony Stark thanks to writer/director Shane Black. Except none of that has to do with Gwyneth Paltrow,…

Jesus Christ, The New ‘Iron Man 3′ Trailer

I'm trying to remind myself that the trailers for Iron Man 2 were awesome while the movie.. not so much, but I'm sorry, was that Robert Downey Jr. firing double Uzis while Gwyneth Paltrow runs around in a bra?

Iron Patriot Is In ‘Iron Man 3′

I probably should've added NERD ALERT in the headline. Presumably to show off that Disney will use all the characters in the Marvel stable however the hell they want, here's James Badge Dale in character as Iron Patriot on the set of Iron Man 3 in North Carolina today which is surprising because a.) if…

So Robert Downey Jr. Might Be Anonymously Claiming Hayden Panettiere Was A Child Prostitute

[UPDATE: Surprise!

Here’s Scarlett Johansson’s The Avengers Costume in Broad Daylight

Hey, do you think she's pregnant? Despite the fact Iron Man 2 was essentially a jumbled, two-hour mess of a trailer for The Avengers that resulted in Jon Favreau bolting the franchise and Robert Downey Jr. cryptically biting the hand that saved him from becoming Charlie Sheen, it still made an assload of money, so…
