Warning: Here Be Crazy Spoilers.
If you are a living, breathing human being between the ages of four and 110, then it's almost a certainty that at some point this month, you'll be going to see "Iron Man Three." And not just once but probably several times.
That's because every Marvel film seems to be jam-packed with secret references, hidden jokes and insider Easter eggs designed to thrizzle even the most jaded movie or comic book fan. Forget that RunPee app that tells you when it's safe to leave the theater; in "Iron Man Three," every single second could hold an encrypted message teasing "Howard the Duck 2" or hinting at a crossover with Daredevil or something. Seeing "Iron Man Three" just once simply isn't an option; after all, it's more than a movie, it's a pop culture test you have to study for.
So in order to help you get the »

Throughout the day we’ve been running interviews with the cast of Iron Man 3, to mark the film’s UK release. We’re finishing off with what was by far our favourite interview: director, Shane Black and writer Drew Pearce.
We say ‘interview’, because in the near half-hour we spent with them, we only managed to shoehorn in around ten questions. Really it was a case of sitting back, watching the banter and occasionally trying to steer the pair back onto the film when they went off course.
Check it out below, where they discuss their thoughts on the franchise, living with one another while developing the movie and Black’s love of Steve Coogan. Spoilers are hinted at…

2013 is set to see some of comics' biggest names returning to the big screen, but while Iron Man, Thor, Wolverine and Superman battle it out for box office supremacy, underdog Kick-Ass will quietly go about his business in Universal Pictures' crime-fighting sequel Kick-Ass 2, which received its first red-band trailer and official poster this past Wednesday.

Gerry Conway is one of the legendary writers in comic book history. During his time at Marvel, he was part of the team that created characters such as Man-Thing, Werewolf by Night, Punisher, Vulture, Tombstone, and many others. During his time at DC Comics, he created Atomic Skull, Cheetah, Firestorm, Killer Croc, Star Sapphire, Jason Todd and many more. However, at Emerald City Comicon, Conway spent a considerable amount of his panel discussing the classic Spider-Man story, "The Night Gwen Stacy Died" which had superstar John Romita Sr. supplying the art. Originally, Romita pitched the story with Aunt May dying at the end. Which I didn't really see, because Aunt May was already, like, on her deathbed.
