The norm now for comic book movies is that the hero’s arc is told over the course of a trilogy and with Robert Downey Jr. wrapping up “Iron Man 3″ it seems like the natural assumption that this will be it for “Iron Man” standalone films.
Wesley Snipes put “Blade” in the tomb after “Blade: Trinity,” the X-Men films were mercifully ended for the first arc after “X-Men: The Last Stand” and Sam Raimi packed up shop on his highly successful “Spider-Man” series. Admittedly, after the third installment, not too many people were upset that he was leaving. Christopher Nolan concluded his critically acclaimed Batman arc and isn’t looking back either.
And let’s be honest, it’s not like “Superman IV: The Quest for Peace” or “Batman & Robin” did much in terms of making a strong case for a fourth installment of a comic book film before the inevitable relaunch.
But with Downey Jr.’s Iron Man, we’ve got a character that audiences aren’t showing any signs of tiring of anytime soon and their appetite for more “Iron Man” movies doesn’t look to be satisfied anytime soon especially with “Iron Man 3″ grossing $198.4 million in its international opening last weekend.

Black Widow, Hawkeye, Iron Man, Iron Man: Rise of Technovore, Pepper Potts, Robert Downey Jr., S.H.I.E.L.D.
While Marvel Studios dominates the box office, the home video wing — Marvel Animation — has consistently been owned by Warner Bros. Animation department’s offerings from the DC Comics Universe.
Although featuring the golden Avenger, the latest effort — “Iron Man: Rise of Technovore” — doesn’t do much to polish the studio’s rusty reputation with a scattered, dull adventure that seems surprisingly dated for a character who’s always on the cutting edge of technology. More

This is the first video offering a sense of Tony Stark’s new upgrades, which allow him to assemble his armor piece by piece instead of having it loaded on via a massive gantry. Looks pretty sweet, right?

In what should complete the set of “Iron Man 3″ character posters, this one shows a wounded and battered Tony Stark/Iron Man clutching tight to his girlfriend Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) while Stark’s Iron Man armada flies overhead.
Of the bunch, this is probably my favorite as it conveys a bit more of the overall film with the Iron Man armada and The Mandarin’s helicopters swarming in for the kill and Iron Man preparing for the big showdown. And it kinda reminds me of those old 1980s action movie posters with the hero clutching his love interest and bracing for the big fight. What do you think?

Here’s what I assume will be the final “Iron Man 3″ character poster featuring Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) rising up from the ocean seemingly preparing for a major battle while an army of Iron Man armors are flying above him.
Are they under Stark’s command or arch-foe The Mandarin?
Guess we’ll find out more come May 3.

NECA was among the dozens of companies showcasing more of their 2013 product at the 2013 Toy Fair held in New York and they’ve got some very fun offerings in store for pop-culture fans.
That scene straight from “Aliens” is BEGGING for Vasquez, Ripley, Gorman and Newt figures to complete it. More
