Iron Man 3: First Look At Mandarin, Teaser Footage

On the eve of the unveiling for the Iron Man 3 debut trailer, Entertainment Weekly has released a photo giving our first official look at Sir Ben Kingsley in his role as Iron Man's key signature villain, Mandarin.

While it is recognized that the solo sequel to Marvel's Armored Avenger will feature Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark forming a new bond with his armor by way of nano-technology, it will also delve into new pathological territory for the billionaire genius; that of darkness and doubt.

Now, the Marvel movieverse's Iron Man will contend with his greatest, most iconic comic book rival for the first time on the big screen.

Check below for the teaser footage released this past weekend which is designed to whet our appetites for tomorrow's trailer debut.

This Shrek Is Always Angry

This Shrek Is Always Angry

This book bag must represent the director's cut of Shrek 2 in which Shrek is accidentally exposed to gamma radiation and then uses his new powers to take vengeance on the would-be cuckolding Prince Charming by ripping off his head and punting it into orbit.

Besides being a nightmare of a clearance process over intellectual property, it may have been a bit dark for a film marketed to children.

Justice League Looks For A 2015 Showdown

It looks like the Justice League could be ready to give some heavy competition to The Avengers sequel.

At this point, it appears that Summer 2015 is the target release period for this dream film, which Warner Bros studio hopes to begin shooting as soon as next year.

With the announcement yesterday that Warner is indeed moving forward with their own answer to the big-screen dream crossover, it seems that their ambitions won't be diminished by Marvel's over $1.5 billion money-making machine. Thus, 2015 could be the year that two of the biggest titans in the history of comic book films square-off.

What will DC have up their sleeves to unseat the current champs at Marvel?

Fifty Shades Of NOPE

"Man, somebody clearly lied to me. This book has NOTHING to do with Harry Potter.

There's no Hogwarts or magic anywhere in this. It's more like a creepy German fetish version of the Penthouse Forum."

The Hobbit: New White Council Poster

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey has released a new poster focusing on an aspect of the film we had not yet seen: The White Council.

While such a thing wouldn't mean much to casual fans of The Lord of the Rings films, for fans who have been following The Hobbit closely, this meeting is an important event in understanding what Gandalf's role will be in The Hobbit films and what part he played in the initial incidents that would set the events some fifty years later in the Rings films into motion.

Depicting Ian McKellen's Gandalf, Cate Blanchett's Galadriel, Hugo Weaving's Elrond, we also get our first glimpse of Christopher Lee reprising his role as would-be-turncoat White Wizard Saruman.

Check out the full poster below.

The Hobbit: New Dwarftastic Poster

As we find ourselves just a few months shy of the December 14 release of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, an interesting new poster has been released showing the group of 13 dwarves who will be accompanying Martin Freeman's Bilbo Baggins on his epic journey in the film trilogy.

With leader, Richard Armitage's Thorin Oakenshield in the center, we see him with among the group consisting of Bombur, Bofur, Bifur, Balin, Dwalin, Kili, Fili, Oin, Gloin, Dori, Ori, and Nori.

It's certainly a poster that embraces its large cast of eccentric dwarves; an aspect of the book-to-movie transition that was once considered a major crutch.

Check out the full poster below!
