“Iron Man 3” pic – suit up!

The Avengers did pretty well at the box office this spring.  It’s as popular as Justin Bieber-flavoured dental braces would doubtless be, if some lunatic made them (idea copyrighted and trademarked, people, step away…).

Accordingly, phase two of Marvel’s ongoing “Avengers” project is in motion, with the justifiably emboldened folks at Marvel sharing with us the first proper set picture from “Iron Man 3” – which you can see above.

We’ve already had a few leaks and sneaky shots grabbed from the film’s shoot in North Carolina, which seemed to indicate the presence of Iron Patriot, which might worry those of us who don’t want to see “IM3” conclude with another mano-a-mano battle between dudes in suits.

I mean, I know that the premise of the character implies a certain amount of suit-bound butt-kicking, but it would be nice if splendid film maker and writing icon Shane Black found a smart way to resolve his story without having steel-on-steel fisticuffs saving the day.

We shall doubtless get to see the first teaser trailer for this threequel by the end of 2012, with the film rocking multiplexes and Repulsing box office records down on May 3, 2013…

“Put it on my tab….”

It’s good to know that somebody out there is considering the important stuff, per this story at SFX today – the damage caused by the climactic battle in “The Avengers” would have cost some poor soul $160 billion to make good.

A sum, of course, that is likely mere walking-around money for a Billionaire philanthropist superhero playboy such as Tony Stark, but more of a concern to the rest of us.

Why, it’s almost as much damage as two blokes in a car managed to accrue in the climactic car apocalypse in “Fast Five”…

This piece from TV Tropes on the concept of Hero Insurance makes for intriguing reading in that regard…

Parvel? Mixar? Coolness…

Marvel? Pixar? Start making this movie and never make another "Cars" sequel. That is all.
