Avengers 2, Captain America, Hawkeye, Iron Man 3, Joss Whedon, Marvel's The Avengers, Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch
During the “Iron Man 3″ premiere, “Marvel’s The Avengers” director/writer Joss Whedon announced to Yahoo! Movies that he’s made some solid progress on the sequel to the third highest grossing film of all time and it will have at least two new Avengers familiar to comic fans.
“I have actually finished a draft, we’re in a very good place,” Whedon said. “It’s an evolution, and that goes on all through shooting and it never stops. I’ve done enough shows and movies to be comfortable with that. You do come to a point where we all agree … You lock certain things in. But then there’s a certain fluidity when you’re working with Robert [Downey Jr.]. Robert’s going to want to do something new on the day, and you’re going to want him to, because it’s going to be funny. So you always keep yourself open.”
But the biggest news was this tidbit about some new additions to the roster: More

Chewbacca, Count Dooku, Star Wars: This is Madness
“Star Wars: This Is Madness” is proving to be as hard to predict as the NCAA men’s basketball March Madness.
Here’s today’s match-up, which is not an actual match — at least on the light side. Chewie is the only acceptable vote. Vote here:
And here’s how the brackets look now – upsets and everything:

Director Jon M. Chu, actors Byung-Hun Lee, Adrianne Palicki, Bruce Willis and D.J. Cotrona attend the premiere of Paramount Pictures’ “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” at TCL Chinese Theatre on March 28, 2013 in Hollywood, California.
On what I assume has to be the final stop in the “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” promotional efforts since the film opened in the U.S. on Thursday after roll-outs worldwide earlier this month, the cast came out to Los Angeles to greet fans and get dolled up one more time. More

NECA, Rambo, Sylvester Stallone
NECA revealed the packaging for its Rambo 7″ figure and it’s some very quality product. The kind that’ll make some people think twice before opening it up to rescue this version of Sylvester Stallone’s other iconic character.
The long awaited anti-hero John Rambo comes to life in figure form from the original 1982 film, First Blood.
Rambo stands 6 3/4″ tall and features over 25 points of articulation
He comes complete with survival knife, machine gun and more. More

Bette Midler, Billy Crystal, Brad Pitt, Daniel Day Lewis, Killing Them Softly, Lincoln, Parental Guidance, Stephen Spielberg

Cad Bane, Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, Mace Windu, Star Wars: This is Madness, Yoda
Just a reminder about Star Wars’ “This Is Madness” tournament, which has already started. You can vote here and these are today’s match-up:
Mace vs. Yoda? Already? Geesh. I’m a bit behind on my “Clone Wars” viewing so I have no idea who Hondo is, but I like Cad enough anyway that he earned my vote easy.
Here’s an updated look at the brackets. More

Batman, Christopher Nolan, David S. Goyer, Man of Steel, Superman, Superman Returns, The Dark Knight
Superman’s “Man of Steel” won’t be stuck in Batman’s shadow.
Here’s some great news for those of you all you were worried that “Man of Steel” was going to feature a brooding, depressing take on Superman a la the very successful Batman trilogy directed by Christopher Nolan.
It would be hard to knock the strategy as Nolan’s Batman saga have been the lone comic book related bright spot for Warner Bros. who’ve seen other DC Comics films “Superman Returns” and “Green Lantern” fail to significantly connect with audiences. That provided Warner Bros. with enough incentive to have Nolan serve as a producer for “Man of Steel,” but fortunately the filmmakers understand that Superman and Batman need to be approached very differently on the big screen.

Cobra, Firefly, G.I. Joe, Larry Hama, Ray Stevenson
G.I. Joe has always had one of the better collection of villains in pop culture, with members of Cobra being just as recognized and beloved by fans as the heroes. One of the most popular members of Cobra was the mercenary expert of sabotage — Firefly.
Just one look at the guy reveals all you need to know why kids couldn’t wait to add Firefly to their collections. With his “robber-style” mask and grey camouflage, Firefly stood out among the other Cobra figures just as much as Storm-Shadow. Even on his action figure file card art, the guy looks shifty. More
