I saw Iron Man 3 last night and I enjoyed; you get your money's worth. Only thing that bugged me is how Tony, with all the resources SHIELD has and the Avengers, has to deal with all this threat on his own. It's not even like it's a local Californian criminal, the villain is a global one. Guess SHIELD has better things to do.
The movie itself is packed with action sequences and fight scenes that top the previous 2 installments by quite a margin, I found though that they slightly overused the Mark 42's ability to dissassemble and assemble at Tony's whim mentally. Can't stress the slightly enough, if you've seen the trailer and watch the movie, it becomes clear but the sequences in the end with the final fight was really cool; I've been waiting ages to see an actual fight in Iron Man and this was better than his fight against Whiplash.
It's got a lot of comedic scenes that are well played, not just with Tony himself but several other characters. I found Ben Kingsley to be brilliant in this film btw, won't spoil why to those who haven't seen it yet. Also the whole "New York" post traumatic anxiety issues are highlighted quite often in the film and sometimes amidst the comedy and it's a really interesting contrast in Tony's character that shows that there's more to RDJ than just comedy and wit.
JARVIS collected information about The Mandarin from CIA, FBI, and S.H.I.E.L.D.. That's all S.H.I.E.L.D. did, provide JARVIS informations. S.H.I.E.L.D., wtf are you doing?!

Saw Robert Downey Jr. Three.
Well it seems Michael B Jordan Jr(The Wire, Red Tails, Chronicle) is a runner up to play Johnny Storm and one of the of the girls from HBO's...''Girls'' is cast to play Susan so i'm not sure where this FF4 reboot is going but time will tell.
Why would they cast a black actor as Johnny Storm and then cast Allison Williams as Sue Storm? They're siblings...
^Half brothers? Genetic atavism? Maybe a subplot will be the realization that one of them is adopted....
Sounds ridiculous...oh well
Maybe it's for some unnecessary plot twist and I think it's the same director from Chronicle so that's why he's a strong possibility right now but I wish the film the best I've always wanted a good FF4.
I'm not a big FF fan to be honest. Not saying it can't be good, but that's a pretty weird plothole.
Well Marvel once again has complete rights over Daredevil and Ghost Rider but there are no plans for movies and it's been confirmed that Pedro and Wanda shall be in Avengers 2 they simply can't mention mutant origins and their father Magneto.
Here's a sneak peek for the book and now film series Enders Game
Also a new and better Wolverine trailer.

I know there's some unclear things there with Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch being included in the next movie. Namely the fact that they're mutants and twin children of Magneto. But they're more Avengers than anything else. Is it confirmed they can't mention their mutant powers? I understand not mentioning Magneto since he's FOX property though.
Not mentioning mutant's powers ? I don't see what of logic there is to not mention that.
Aside that it seems that not mentioning Magneto wouldn't be a problem at first since they didn't know who was their father at first. (as far I as heard, I didn't read the comics with them involved)
PS : Ender's game book was great.
Still, I think the not mentioning mutant thing is bogus. It just doesn't really make sense. Mutant isn't specific enough to be considered intellectual property. Scarlet Witch has powers outside of her mutation, involving magic, but it wouldn't really explain Quicksilver's powers. Maybe it isn't really a big deal, not sure.
It seems Jurassic Park 4 will take place on the original island I wonder if they'll use a story-line from the books this time.
Luke Evans will play the Crow nice choice if I must say and Cruise has signed on for MI:5.
