Transformers 4: Michael Bay Says It Will Be His Last

In what may sound like a bit of "I've heard this before" news, director, Michael Bay has announced that the upcoming fourth film he's helming in the Transformers franchise will indeed be his last.

While discussing the new $100 million Transformers-themed 3D ride at Universal Studios Hollywood, Bay briefly touched on some tidbits for the fourth film. In an interview with the LA Times' Hero Complex, Bay reveals that part 4 will "include some redesign of the robots and an entirely new cast."

Just as he did during the promotional phase for last year's Dark of the Moon, Bay states that this will be his last film in the franchise. However, this time, he also implies that with this film, he will be setting the franchise up "for the next guy."

It certainly opens a lot of possibilities to see Bay hand-off the baton of the Transformers franchise with an all-new cast and redesigned bots to someone else.

X-Men: First Class Sequel Is Days Of Future Past?

Possible news regarding the upcoming X-Men: First Class sequel may have surfaced. Could the film be ready to tackle one of the X-Men mythos' most iconic stories involving alternate timelines?

According to a report from Ain't It Cool News, the MPAA Title Registration Bureau just registered the title, Days of Future Past; a name that will ring familiar with anyone who's acquainted with X-Men comics from the early 80's during the magical Chris Claremont/John Byrne era.

While nothing has been confirmed, the possibility does exist that the First Class sequel could be tackling the storyline in which the assassination of anti-mutant senator, Robert Kelly (who some may remember was played by Bruce Davison in the 2000 X-Men film,) sets off a chain reaction that leads to a dystopian future in which mutants are hunted to near extinction by the giant robot Sentinels.

Could this be in store for director Matthew Vaughn's next entry into the mutant movieverse?

Iron Man 3: First Official Set Photo

While fans are still trying to recover from the onslaught of awesome that was The Avengers, it seems that the first official bit of promotion for the upcoming Iron Man 3 has hit.

This set photo officially-released by Marvel shows Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark standing in the middle of his ever-growing collection of Iron Man armor. It's a fitting image, as in this film, Stark will make a completely new kind of connection with his armor by way of nanotechnology.

Leaked set photos from last week showed what appears to be a character in the Iron Patriot armor from the comics. (Sans former Green Goblin, Norman Osborn, who lives in Sony's Marvel Movieverse.) However, we can also expect an array of new faces, most of which are villains like Firepower, Coldblood-7, and Ben Kingsley apparently cast as iconic nemesis, Mandarin.

Iron Man 3 directed by Shane Black hits theaters May 3, 2013.

"Yup. Decided to break out the 'ole Mark II and take the 'lil Iron Baby out for a morning stroll, maybe incinerating a bad guy or two.

I may have money and ridiculous tech, but that doesn't mean I'm missing out on the little things."

G.I. Joe Retaliation Delay Due To Storyline Change?

Was there another reason for the mind-boggling delay of sequel, G.I. Joe: Retaliation?

The recent announcement that the film, originally-slated for June 29 would be shifted to March 29, 2013 was originally attributed to Paramount's desire to convert the film to 3D. While that reason still remains solid, there was apparently another reason, and it has to do with returning star, Channing Tatum, who plays Duke.

It seems that the way the character was handled this time around, along with his fate, left test audiences not feeling so "Yo Joe!" about the film.

Batman Stopping Crime At Kid's Party

The Dark Knight Rises...to kick children in the face!

Sure, this may look harsh, but earlier, Batman caught her peeking through her blindfold during Pin the Tail on the Donkey. To do such a thing in his presence is the height of hubris.

Who Knew Spider-Man Was Jewish?

Apparently, Peter Parker is actually Peter Parkerstein and Spider-Man's nickname of "the Wall-Crawler" is a shortened version of "the Wailing Wall-Crawler."

His web shooters are actually a chemical hybrid of rubber cement and pure hummus.
