Top 5 Stories For The Week Ending 02/22/2013


Leaked IRON MAN 3 Concept Art Featuring Hulkbuster Armor

These images came from an anonymous tipster and after some internal deliberating, we determined they were on the up and up. These leaked concept designs from Marvel's upcoming Iron Man threequel, give us a good look at Tony Stark's space suit, and although it's unlikely to feature in the movie, the Hulkbuster armor.

Megan Fox To Play 'April O'Neil' In Michael Bay Produced NINJA TURTLES

Apparently Michael Bay and Megan Fox have buried the hatchet as she's signed on to play April O'Neil in the Ninja Turtles. Bay is only producing Jonathan Liebesman's film however so there's no telling how active he'll be on actual filming as his past producing credits reveal a list of films where his directorial aesthetic is front and center and others where it's not.

New IRON MAN 3 Character Poster Featuring The Mandarin

Instead of a Chines Fu Manchu, The Mandarin appears to be a suave, calm and collected Iron Man adversary that's a bit of a pack rat. See if you can spot all the MCU prop pieces in the latest Iron Man 3 poster.

Kevin Feige Confirms CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER Is A Political Thriller

The first Captain America film was a war movie and the next will be a political thriller according to Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige. Does that mean threats to America or the larger United Nations? Unknown at this point but Feige has provided our first clue to the plot that features Winter Solder, Crossbones, Falcon, Cap, and S.H.I.E.L.D.

Matthew Vaughn Joins Josh Trank's FANTASTIC FOUR Reboot As A Producer

Could this be a move towards a shared universe with X-Men and Fantastic Four characters? My money is on that happening first in Days of Future Past but it's probably safe to say Fox is definitely heading in this direction.

I was really hoping for Mary Elizabeth Winstead for Arpil.

TMNT will most likely suck now. Megan Fox was believable as white trash in Transformers but I'm not buying her as an educated successful woman like April O'Neill.

You guys act like you're going to see Ninja Turtles for April O'Neil alone. In the grand scheme of things, her role is minor.

Maybe she will freak out and stab Bay in his trailer and the Bay virus will be contained.

What were the other MCU props in the IM poster? Blue helmet/s and Iron Man's and random dragons people said were Fin Fang Foom--any others?

MEW would have been perfect April.

slow week if that Cap news made it on here.
parkerray - 2/23/2013, 6:39 AM
holy frick you guys are right! she is April O'Neil:

I'll never understand the hate Megan Fox gets, especially by men. She would have been a great cast choice for Mary Jane in Amazing Spiderman 2 IMO.
Let's be honest though none of us were going to watch "Ninja Turtles" anyway.
Mrcool210 - 2/23/2013, 7:52 AM
LittleDanglyThing we hate her because she can't act and yet she keeps ending up in franchises we love
LittleDanglyThing - 2/23/2013, 8:08 AM
@Mrcool210 she is not the reason transformers was so bad... If anything she made it better by giving us something to look at. Besides she's only been in like 5 movies. If you think she's a bad actress wait til you see the new Mary Jane.

LittleDangyThing Everyone has an opinion and can state what they want, but not you.. ever.. shut up

I just realized Chocolate chip pancakes are really really good
LittleDanglyThing - 2/23/2013, 9:35 AM
@fattieacid What a douche bag. I did nothing wrong and insulted no one, how about you "shut up". So sensitive off one mans opinion.

Megan Fox as April O' Neil? Da Frick? As if she ain't already destroy Transformers. Damn.

@Supergroup...THAT WAS FUNNY!!! When it was known as the Office..and when it was known as The Office!!! And when it was known as Arrested Development and when it was known as Parks and Recreations...sorry man that whole set up is lamer and more contrived then found footage films.

@earzmundo I want my Ninja Turtles to be like The Raid. Story is secondary to balls to the wall action.
