Iron Man made in excess of $200 million worldwide. Which means a sequel is inevitable. And it seems Marvel have announced their slate for the next few years, with Iron Man 2, Thor and The Avengers to come next.
I thought I'd missed the Nick Fury cameo at the end of Iron Man last week when I ducked out as soon as the credits rolled but it seems the coda wasn't attached to press prints. Here it is for anybody else who didn't stay.
Preparing to interview Paul W.S. Anderson last week for his Death Race reimaging, it occurred to me that I first interviewed him 15 years ago which made me feel very old. (It was before even Shopping was released in the UK.) I've always liked him, despite the fanboy community's near maniacal hatred of him and his films. I remember interviewing him at Twickenham Studios when he was mixing Event Horizon, as well as on the set of both Resident Evil and AVP.
The new Dark Knight trailer took fans by storm (I've watched it far too many times), with much online speculation raging over the exact cause of Harvey Dent's facial injuries. Was it acid or, as the footage seemed to suggest, the result of petrol?
I know there are people for whom this kind of stuff is crucial, but, common on people, hasn't Nolan earned our trust by now. The guy knows what he's doing.
I realised, too, watching trailers for both of these recently, that I have zero interest in seeing either Sex And The City or Mamma Mia this summer.
