IRON MAN 3
Comic Book Movie has posted a piece of “Iron Man 3” concept art of Tony Stark’s Heartbreaker Armor that he wears in the climactic battle scene of the film.
“Tony Stark is [now] relying on these suits to feel like he’s in any way capable,” Black told Empire. “He surrounds himself with these things almost like a blanket. In The Avengers, he fought aliens, but he was the one character I would not have picked to fight aliens. Now we’ve taken advantage of the fact that he’s fought aliens and he talks about it.”
The current issue of Empire Magazine also contains Robert Downey, Jr.’s speculation on whether he might return to the role for another Marvel movie.
“Let’s just say that the only thing I ever let go of had claw marks in it,” the actor told Empire. “There’s a little bit of soul reclamation going on. I feel that the first time I played Tony, I did it best. Sorry! The affinity with Tony now is: how do you sustain something? I’m not stupid, I like to play ball, I love the company, I love the character, and the business side of things, I’m not to picky about that either. … Let’s see what happens. I take the audience very seriously – I feel bad when I see folks doing movies and the audience is like, ‘Don’t do that anymore.’ I don’t have to overstay my welcome…”

Geek Chocolate has posted a transcription of Joss Whedon’s question and answer session at the Glasgow Film Festival, where he screened “Much Ado About Nothing.” During the Q&A, Whedon commented on the challenges of putting together a good “Hulk” solo film.
“It would be very, very hard. Hulk is a tricky son of a bitch,” Whedon said. “He’s the Claudio of superheroes. Because the problem is it’s a very popular character, but it’s not a superhero. Half of it’s a superhero, half of it’s a werewolf. And you can’t structure it like a superhero movie, you can’t light it like a superhero movie. How do you develop that? It would be extremely difficult. The one thing you would have in your favor would be Mark Ruffalo. But right now I don’t know if they have plans to do that or not, because he works so well as part of a greater whole, but by himself, it’s tough. I don’t envy the guys who went before.”
X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST
Empire Magazine spoke with James McAvoy about the possibility of young and old Xaviers meeting during “Days of Future Past.”
“It’ll be cool, but I don’t think we get any scenes together, sadly,” McAvoy told the magazine. “I don’t think there’s any future self talking to past self.”
Thanks to Comic Book Movie for the heads up.

SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR
MTV spoke with Joseph Gordon-Levitt on the red carpet for the Oscars, where the actor revealed he had already finished his role in “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.”
“Yeah, we shot it already. It went so great,” Gordon-Levitt told MTV. “Robert Rodriguez is just a delightful human being. He’s got so much creativity pouring out of him. He’s got a painting studio set up next to where we shoot so that when there’s downtime he encourages people to just go paint. How cool is that? So cool.”

JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK
Guillermo Del Toro spoke with /Film about his take on the darker characters of the DC Universe and the status of the film.
“I am going to be presenting my storyline to DC and Warners of where I want to take this universe. We do have a writer, but until that is firmed up, I have to keep it a secret. I hope it happens,” he told /Film. “It’s going really really well. It’s like meeting old friends. I grew up with Demon Etrigan, with Swamp Thing, with Deadman, so these are characters that are near and dear to my heart. I’d love to use the origins that are proper to each character. I love the idea of Jason Blood as a paladin and a knight…. I love the entire Constantine mythology, the Deadman mythology, the Alex Holland Swamp Thing mythology. These are really rich things to well, and to dig.”
