Since his comic-book debut in 1968, brilliant inventor Tony Stark has always stayed at the forefront of technology as he developed newer and better versions of his Iron Man armor. He’s come a long way from the transistors of the 1960s, and his latest suits of armor can respond to his very thoughts! Now, Diamond Select Toys and marvelshop.com have collaborated on an all-new Marvel Select action figure immortalizing one of Iron Man’s most high-tech armors ever: Bleeding Edge Iron Man!
Debuting in Invincible Iron Man #25, the Mark 38 armor is actually made up of millions of nano-machines stored inside Tony Stark’s body, which exit through the pores of his skin using repulsor technology to form a protective layer over his entire body. While Stark has since developed other armors, the Mark 38 represented a new way of thinking about Iron Man, and was truly on the “bleeding edge” of comic book technology.
Exclusively available at marvelshop.com starting October 13, this 7-inch action figure has 16 points of articulation, and comes with a display base that simulates Iron Man’s flight path through the wing of an enemy fighter jet. Base and figure will come packaged in display-ready Select figure packaging, with comic art on the side panel for easy reference during on-shelf storage.
After October 27, the Marvel Select Bleeding Edge Iron Man figure will be made available on disneystore.com, and will begin to make its way to Disney Store shelves in the U.S. and Canada.
During an interview with Deadline, and joke was made between the interviewer and actor Robert Downey Jr. and the idea of Mel Gibson directing Iron Man 4. Numerous sites ran the joke as fact, we knew better and reported the news correctly, sticking to fact not fiction. The lesson is, don’t fall for click bait from other sites.
In a Reddit Ask Me Anything, the actor was asked again about Gibson and future plans for Iron Man.
Zedab: Hello, Iron Man. You’ve spoken before about your willingness to re-don the Iron Man Armor if Mel Gibson was to direct. First of all, on a scale of 1 to 11 how serious were you? Secondly, what do you think Mel Gibson would bring to the Iron Man series and would you still consider returning if he does not direct?
Robert Downey Jr.: It was an offhanded remark to a journalist and friend. I have other projects in mind for Mel and I – sooner than later the Marvel Roster will be made public and all questions will be answered.
So, once again, we correct in how we reported the story and other sites, that are consistently wrong with rumors, continued to be so.
Now, some, when it comes to Iron Man 4, Downey in that same interview with Deadline stated negotiations are underway. On The Ellen Show, Downey breaks down and confirms another movie is coming, though they are still negotiating details. If it is Iron Man 4 or something else is still up in the air.
And another answer on David Letterman.
Some sites have posted in his interview with Deadline, actor Robert Downey Jr. suggested that controversial actor/director Mel Gibson should direct Iron Man 4. Except, those who read the original article know that’s not what was meant, or said.
While promoting his new movie The Judge, discussion turned towards the chances of Iron Man 4, and Downey’s interest. He gives an update that discussions are being had, and the issues including his age, time commitment, his interest in doing other projects, and his wanting to spend time with his family. Basically, it’s a discussion of the right exit strategy for all.
About three quarters of the way through the article the topic turns towards Downey’s friend Mel Gibson, and the article writer’s suggestion he deserves a new chance, and also Downey’s second chance. It’s an excellent reminder of Downey’s past troubles, and that his rise is truly a second act, one many wrote off as wasn’t going to happen.
The suggestion of Gibson directing Iron Man 4 doesn’t come from Downey though, it comes from the interviewer.
DEADLINE: That’s the project Steve McQueen developed for himself.
DOWNEY: Yes, and I’m like, God, if I could find a part for Mel. But he also likes to do his own thing and sometimes he goes out of his way to do the unexpected. Sometimes with these things, it becomes a matter of time, and is seems like it’s getting a little bit old to hold a grudge.
DEADLINE: True, but the year he made Apocalypto, I didn’t see a better movie and he was ignored and hasn’t directed since. Marvel badly wants Iron Man 4 and you’ve said you aren’t doing it. How about the idea you’ll do that movie if Mel directs it?
DEADLINE: Is that our headline?
DOWNEY: Why not? That movie would be bananas.
Take it all out of context, and you have a tantalizing headline from sites trying to get hits. In context, it’s just a joke between interviewer and interviewee. Not story here folks, move along, and remember, read the actual source to get the full details, and don’t fall for clickbait.
The Marvel HeroClix: The Avengers Quick-Start Kit will include two figures, Captain America and Iron Man, as well as character cards, quick-start rules, and a board game map. The set will retail for $4.99 and the two figures are meant as non-collectible figures, so not to be used in tournaments.
The next Free Comic Book Day is on May 2, 2015.
Ript Apparel has two new designs today. One mixes Iron Man with Samus from Metroid. The other mixes Iron Man with Futurama‘s Bender! Iron Samus and Iron Bender from CoinboxTees and Ninjae will be for sale on July 31, 2014 only!
Marvel has announced the release of Superior Iron Man #1 by series writer Tom Taylor and artist Yildiray Çinar. Beginning in November 2014, Tony Stark will give into his ego and return to his billionaire playboy roots of self-obsession and superficiality.
In a release Taylor explained
He’s self-obsessed. Cunning. Superficial. Superior. He has given Extremis to the people. Extremis can now be downloaded as a mobile app through any smart device in San Francisco and this creates Tony’s idea of a Utopia, which he is very happy to be at the heart of. But not everyone is buying Tony’s Paradise.
Superior Iron Man will also feature recent “City by the Bay” transplant – Daredevil!
Taylor continued in the release:
Daredevil may be blind but he can see the cracks in Stark’s Brave New World. In a way this is all an allegory for the technology that now rules our lives. The corruption that comes from this technology and the dependence we each have on it.
Superior Iron Man #1 will be available this November.
The weekend is here! Go out and enjoy the weather, and maybe read some comics outside.
