I believe the technical term is “screwed”.
I’m kind of digging this look. It manages to pay homage to the original comic book design, but turns the Asian-motif from caricature to eccentricity. Ben Kingsley looks like he carries considerable power with a nice tinge of insanity. Kind of a “What if Elvis had been a scientist instead of a musician?”

Marvel has shared a new character poster on their Facebook page, The Iron Patriot. Don Cheadle looks ready to dish out pain and frozen treats!
The battle for coolest ninja ever can be played out in your own home. Following the Snake Eyes Collectible Figure, Hot Toys has shared images of Storm Shadow on their Facebook page.
Following the firstly launched character of the Snake Eyes Collectible Figure from the upcoming G.I. Joe Retaliation movie, Hot Toys is thrilled to present the white ninja – the Storm Shadow Collectible Figure who comes from the villainous Cobra organization.
The movie-accurate collectible is specially crafted based on the image of Lee Byung Hun as Storm Shadow in his white ninja bodysuit in the movie, highlighting the new developed heads, highly detailed costume and weapons.
Let’s continue the ninja battle between Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow in this sequel!

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 can also join Cobra at their recruitment site!

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.
