Update: Batman v Superman's Batmobile is half classic, half Nolan

Update: And we have an official view from Zack Snyder, which you can see in the gallery. Actually looks even more throwback than I originally thought.  One of my less-than-favorite things in the Nolan Batman films w...

First possible look at Doctor Doom in new Fantastic Four

We'll of course preface this with the fact that these are leaked images and thus may not be real at all, though someone would have to go to some lengths to pull this off. These are supposedly images from the set of the new Fa...

This Fast & Furious 7 image is just the best thing

This image may not feature the things you'd expect from Fast & Furious (tanktops, fast cars, more tanktops), but it does have one thing: pure unstoppable manitude. Courtesy of Dwayne Johnson's Twitter (if you ever just wa...

First good look at Ant-Man's butt photo
First good look at Ant-Man's butt
by Matthew Razak

Edgar Wright is back in Hollywood it appears and working on Ant-Man. The director Tweeted out this image of the superhero's costume, which is one of the few good looks at the costume outside of the Comic Con teaser and reveals the most important aspect of it: how good Ant-Man's ass looks in his costume. 

The spandex-clad ass has always been an important aspect of comic books and it's good to see that Wright and Marvel are taking it seriously. This is one fine looking Ant-Man ass and I believe its presence confirms that the film will be the best movie ever when it releases summer of 2015.

Posting random set images for movies isn't always worth it, but for something as big and under wraps as Christopher Nolan's Interstellar it's definitely worth looking into. These new images cropped up over on Reddit and ...

New photo of Alexa Vega spices up Machete Kills

New Iron Man 3 photos and poster show off fancy suits photo
New Iron Man 3 photos and poster show off fancy suits
by Nick Valdez

In anticipation of the release of the first trailer for Iron Man 3 on Tuesday, Marvel has just released a couple of very teasing set photos. And by teasing I mean glorious. Just look at that Iron Patriot War Machine photo! It's so MERICA. In addition to a couple of photos of fancy suits, we have a new glimpse of Tony Stark separated from a powered on suit (wonder what that's all about?), a very beardy Mandarin, and an awesome teaser poster where Tony's wearing Iron Gloves (patent pending). 

Kevin Feige also had this to say about the sequel's plot:

He basically loses all of his toys and is forced to just use his mind to rebuild and to face his biggest enemy...He's ultimately the engineering superhero. He's so charming and so flamboyant that sometimes you forget that's what he is: 'Hey, kids, learn this stuff and you can maybe build an Iron Man suit.'

And in reference to Tony and The Mandarin: 

A lot of this movie is about characters going back into the shadows for various reasons and characters who have been in the shadows coming out and into the light for the first time. It is Tony who, for various reasons, finds himself receding into the darkness. I don’t mean emotional darkness, I mean literally ducking out of the spotlight. And we’ll see other characters stepping up who have pulled strings from the background, starting to show their hand.

Just like how the first Iron Man kicked off Marvel's Phase One, Iron Man 3 is set to begin Marvel's post-Avengers Phase Two and beyond. And from the looks of things, it's going to be a good beginning. You can check out all of the images and teaser poster in the gallery.
