Stuff You Need to Know: Disney Expected to Announce Animated Remakes of Live-Action Remakes of Animated Films

Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase 2 Blu-Ray Collection

A lot of pop culture news happens. Some of it you don’t need to know. Some of it you only need the briefest bit of it. And pretty much all of it is not urgent. Welcome to an endeavor to save you time and sanity. Enjoy.

  • And here it is: the Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase 2 Collection. Well…not really, that’s not it…that’s just the image that’s posted on Amazon for the pre-orders. But it’s an Amazon exclusive, so if you want the films Iron Man 3 through Ant-Man plus a “bonus disc and more” now’s your chance. Speaking of which, Ant-Man is also available for pre-order. No release date for either one yet.

    Iron Man 3 (2013) – 27 Second Review

    Iron Man 3 Poster

    Written by: Drew Pearce & Shane Black, based on the character created by Stan Lee, Don Heck, Larry Lieber & Jack Kirby and the comic book storyline by Warren Ellis & Adi Granov

    Directed by: Shane Black
    Starring: Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Ben Kingsley, Jon Favreau and Paul Bettany

    Review: Tony Stark. Genius. Billionaire. Superhero. Bit of a dick. And once again, Robert Downey Jr. plays it all out masterfully. Of course, I go to movies for the ‘splode, and that was present in droves as well. If you go more than fifteen minutes in this movie without an explosion, you should make sure you’re in the right theater. And that’s a good thing. It’s also a good thing to finally have a superhero role model who can be an asshole to children.

    Time: 22 seconds

    Iron Man Three: On What Was Done

    Iron Man 3 Robert Downey Jr. Headsup Display

    Hey folks. Other than that AWESOME NEIL GAIMAN ANNOUNCEMENT it’s been a while. I was still kind of recovering from Fringe, to be honest. Anywhoddle, as you know, Bob, part of my remit here is that I talk about cyborgs, robots, artificial intelligence, time travel, magic, alternate realities, and human augmentation, and all the ways those things show up in popular culture; and so, with that in mind, if you thought I was going to miss out on seeing Iron Man Three as soon as was inhumanly possible, then you didn’t read that last clause back there. Yeah, that one.

    I’ve been looking forward to IM3 since it was announced, and since they started talking about what the screenplay was going to be based off of (more on that below)–so when we got to the theater and that theater was mostly empty, I was a little sad. I’d wanted a big crowded experience, and there were literally about twenty people in our showing. But still, I was with friends and I was content to enjoy this highly anticipated film in their company. That, plus the new Thor 2 trailer the manager was gracious enough to splice in for us guaranteed that it was a really fantastic time.
