You too can look like Iron Man on a motorcycle

Marveling Over The Lego Iron Man

Overheard in the elevator (as narrated by a friend): Guy: I don’t care what you say, my favorite robot is Iron Man! I don’t know about Tony Stark being a robot, but I am sure all the girls here would agree with me when I say that he can be MY robot any time! But […]

Geek Girl Crush: Robert Downey, Jr On Jay Leno

Ok, I can’t stand this. I need an Iron Man / Robert Downey, Jr. detox. PRONTO! Ever since I got back from watching Iron Man 2 from the movie theater, all I’ve been thinking about (mostly) is either Iron Man related or Robert Downey, Jr. related. I watched Iron Man 1 again on DVD, I’ve […]

5 Geek-gasmic Scenes From Iron Man 2

I just came from watching Iron Man 2 in the theater today so forgive me if I seem like a squeal-y little fan girl. I swear to the geek gods, Iron Man is SOOO COOL! (and Robert Downey, Jr. is SO HOT!) Among all the movie adaptations of Marvel, Iron Man is probably the best […]

Joss Whedon and The Avengers

That sound you’re hearing? Choirs of fanboys singing. This might be the greatest news to ever come out of geekdom. Joss Whedon, one of the most celebrated and respected (and geeky) wordsmiths of our time, is going to be directing Marvel Studios’ big-budget superhero mashup, The Avengers. As you probably know, The Avengers is combining the stars of Marvel’s […]

Making Movies Real – Building Project Jarvis

Sometimes, normal people do things that just amaze me. Chad Barraford of Brookline, Massachusetts, saw the movie Iron Man and decided that he wanted to turn the fictional Jarvis – the talking computer in charge of Tony Stark’s home, workshop and  Iron Man suit – into reality. To do it, he used a combination of […]

Your Next Captain America is the Human Torch

The long hunt is finally over. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the next person to play Captain America in Marvel’s latest project is Chris Evans. How do you know him? Well, he’s “that guy” from Not Another Teen Movie, the lead character in Push, and of course, the Human Torch in the Fantastic Four Series. […]

I Guess Marvel Will License Anything: Wolverine Mouse and Keyboard

A few days ago, I brought you the glory that is the Marvel HD television lineup. That was exciting, right? I mean, who wouldn’t want a television with their favorite character printed on it? Oh wait, you wouldn’t? Well then sir or madam, I do not want to be your friend. But now there’s more. […]

New Iron Man 2 Trailer Up Now

I never read Iron Man as a kid. I was more into Batman, the X-Men and related teams, as well as Spider-Man to read about an alcoholic rich guy with a suit. As a result, I went into Iron Man the movie with just a few basic expectations, and came out ecstatic about the series […]

Marvel Televisions – Yes, You Read That Correctly

You know, I’ve been saying to all my friends for years now, “Why don’t they make a hi-def TV with my favorite Marvel comic book characters on it?” Guess what? They’ve finally done it.It’s like the peanut butter and chocolate combination of this century. That’s right, Marvel Comics has teamed up with RTC23, to release […]

Upcoming Superhero/Graphic Novel Movies for 2009/2010

It seems that every year more and more comic books and graphic novels are making the passage from the page to the big screen. Hollywood has cottoned on that not only are these art forms quite often full of great stories but they come complete with an already made fan base who will flock to […]

Iron Man and the "Ultimate" possibilities

I just saw Iron Man and I have to say I enjoyed myself. It was far better than what I was expecting– which was it was going to be crap because Jon Favreau is not exactly a director with a very impressive list of movies behind him. His only movie that I really loved was […]

Iron Man Lives Up to Hype

It’s not every weekend that the movie-going public and fat cat studio execs get to go home happy.  Thanks to a $100 million opening weekend take and a believable performance from Robert Downey Jr., there was a smile so wide that it stretched all the way from Hollywood to Fifth Avenue, Manhattan. What’s great about […]

Your eVites are all responded to. Your Roomba is charged up to take care of the messy aftermath.  And you’re ready to go on and on about the importance of 1,080 lines of interlaced vertical resolution. It must be Super Bowl Sunday. The funny part is, you couldn’t give a crap about the game.  You […]

New Iron Man pic released

Here’s a new photo from the upcoming Iron Man flick coming this year. I wouldn’t go into the details of what the pic is about because, really, who would know, right? Let me just say that Robert Downey, Jr. as Tony Stark is a brilliant casting choice. I can’t see anyone else playing the billionaire […]
