I have to admit it, I am a sucker when films advertise in an unusual fashion. Take this video for G.I. Joe: Retaliation. They managed to get Keith David (or a sound-alike) to do the voice-over. That is brilliant!
When movies take this kind of imagination and apply it to their advertising it encourages me that the movie will be good. It isn’t a guarantee, but it certainly helps.

You have to ask yourself sometimes, just how much does Marvel owe the success of their new film universe to Robert Downey Jr.? Obviously so many important elements have had to come together, but he has to have made things so much easier for Marvel. He always appears to enjoy playing Iron Man. I have to think that his enthusiasm has convinced other actors to buy in and enjoy the ride.
The newest trailer is even more evidence that he has a grasp on his superhero character like few actors before him have. Every indication is that he and Shane Black will be delivering a wickedly good movie.
On Sunday we will be getting a new Iron man 3 trailer during the Super Bowl. It costs approximately $3-4 million dollars for every thirty seconds of ad time, so I cannot begrudge Marvel for putting out a teaser for this event.
To make things even more interesting they have released a new poster featuring Tony Stark plummeting to Earth. I love this poster. It is very rare these days to see a poster that both depicts a potential scene from the movie but also delivers on the theme the film generates.

Hot Toys has shared the Iron Man 3: Tony Stark Limited Edition Collectible Figurine on their Facebook page. As always the level of detail and extras is staggering. That said, I hope the head sculpt is just a prototype. After all the Tony Stark figures they have done it is odd that the newest version is the least accurate likeness. I suspect they will correct it before it is released.

The mysterious Kucharek Brothers have delivered another impressive addition to Bowen Designs’ Marvel statuary universe. Possibly the greatest derivative of an established villain ever, The Hobgoblin is shown in a classic museum pose. Hobgoblin has never been a personal favorite, but damn this is impressive and has me thinking. You can discuss it over at Statue Marvels.
