You guys, it is only Tuesday.

And Tuesday is almost worse than Monday because you're no longer rested up from the weekend — unless you were one of those select few peeps who got Columbus Day off — and yet there's still so much week left.

So, we here at the net's most entertaining film site would like to offer you a condolence laugh or two by way of a squirrel photoshopped into your favorite superheroes and other iconic film characters. Of course. Get More »

New on DVD and Blu-ray: 'Iron Man Three' and More

Iron Man 3 Marvel

Also new this week is the sweet-natured coming-of-age comedy "The Kings of Summer," the mind-bending "The Shining" documentary "Room 237" and the freaky horror anthology "V/H/S/2." Get More »

Sequel Subtitles: Can We Just Bring Back Numbers, Please?

When Marvel unveiled its surprise announcement at the end of its lengthy panel at San Diego Comic-Con last weekend, it felt like something of an anticlimax, and not just because Tom Hiddleston had just been on stage moments earlier in fully Loki regalia (wouldn't have been more exciting if he had come out dressed as his character from "War Horse?") Joss Whedon, the balding, brilliant whiz behind the $1 billion-grossing "Avengers," trotted out on stage in what appeared to be hand-me-down sneakers, to announce the title of the "Avengers" sequel, due in theaters in 2015. The movie would be called "The Avengers: Age of Ultron."

Uh what?

For those who were not born with a lifetime subscription to Starlog Magazine, the puzzlement sent in almost immediately. Who (or what) is Ultron? Why is this a whole "Age?" How long is this movie supposed to be? For those of us who own a complete set of limited edition "Battlestar Galactica" commemorative plates and can name all of the different jaegers in "Pacific Rim," there were even more questions: Is this based on the recent Brian Michael Bendis-scripted comic book series (that shares the same name)? And wasn't Ultron, an evil robot overlord, developed by Hank Pym aka Ant Man, but doesn't the "Ant Man" movie come out after the movie formerly known as "Avengers 2?" Get More »

Hugh Jackman Wants Wolverine to Play with 'The Avengers' Too!

In today's installment of Hugh Jackman keepin' it real, the "Wolverine" star thinks it's high time the current big three among superhero studios — that'd be Warner Bros., Sony Pictures and 20th Century Fox — pass around some kinda olive branch and make nice so that he can play with Iron Man and Spider-Man and all the other cool kids, too!

Yup, in a new sit-down with Collider to promote his latest turn as the adamantium-filled fighter, hitting theaters on July 26, Jackman laments all the mine-mine-mine stuff going down between the three comic-to-movie heavyweight champs of the industry right now ... especially since it means he can't flex his "X-Men" claws alongside the likes of "Iron Man" and "The Amazing Spider-Man."

Our Superheroes Ranked From Least to Most Patriotic

Iron Patriot Marvel

One of the best things about "Iron Man 3" was the debut of Iron Patriot, which is basically a suit of Iron Man armor painted to look like the American flag. Seriously, just when you thought Iron Man couldn't get any cooler, this thing comes along, smashing evil ideologies with the fist of superhero righteousness. U-S-A! U-S-A!

Really, Rhodey's a one-man Fourth of July party in that get-up. Which got us thinking: who might be the ultimate Independence Day superhero? Get More »

Why Must Every Action Movie Have Multiple Endings?

Man of Steel Warner Bros.

WARNING: SPOILERS GALORE.

By not simply rolling to "The End," "They all lived happily ever after," etc. after Frodo made a three-pointer chucking The One Ring into Mount Doom, Peter Jackson set a pretty bad precedent in "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King." Every time it seemed like all was well and we were fading to credits, another five-minute scene would roll in. Toss in a few Oscars and you've got a bunch of blockbuster directors wanting to add 20 endings to their genre films, too. Get More »

This Happened: Little Kid Thought He Was Meeting Iron Man, Cried When RDJ Showed Up

Contract negotiations are ongoing to bring Robert Downey Jr. back for "Marvel's The Avengers 2" and a possible fourth "Iron Man" film, hot on the heels of both franchise's previous installments cracking the $1 billion mark at the worldwide box-office. But nevertheless, Robert Downey Jr. is so identifiable as Tony Stark/Iron Man, right? Don't take our word for it. That's what Joss Whedon said recently. "Iron Man" and "Iron Man 2" director Jon Favreau agrees. Even Marvel honcho, Kevin Feige, must love him in the role, whether he has to replace him or not.

But whether grownups think RDJ "is" Iron Man matters naught to little tikes. Case in point: a cute faux-hawked 1-year-old thought he was going to meet Iron Man and burst into tears when all he got was plain ole Robert Downey Jr. Get More »

Robert Downey Jr. isn't signed up for any more sequels, but his director definitely wants him back for "Marvel's The Avengers 2."

Last month, Downey, his producing partner/wife Susan Downey, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, Disney Studios boss Alan Horn and "Iron Man 3" director Shane Black sat down to lunch to celebrate their latest box-office bonanza, but also ostensibly to talk about Downey's deal, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Universal Universal

According to Film.com, "Fast & Furious 6" debuted to an estimated $98.5 million to lead a record setting Memorial Day weekend.

Besides "Fast & Furious 6," "The Hangover Part III" ($42.4 million), "Star Trek Into Darkness" ($38 million), "Epic " ($34.2 million), "Iron Man 3" ($19.4 million) and "The Great Gatsby" ($13.7 million) all reached eight figures.

'Star Trek Into Darkness' Beams Up Box Office Win

Star Trek Into Darkness Paramount

According to Film.com, "Star Trek Into Darkness" easily won the box office this weekend, bringing in an estimated $70.6 million ($84.1 million with Thursday factored in) to knock "Iron Man 3" off the throne.

That was well short of the $100 million Paramount was hoping for. But it's still a pretty solid take, especially considering the strong competition. Not only did "Iron Man 3" earn a robust $35.2 million in its third weekend of release, but "The Great Gatsby" also took in $23.4 million in its second frame.

Next weekend should be a battle royale as well, as all three blockbusters will be facing off against new mega-events "Fast and Furious 6," "The Hangover Part III" and "Epic." For now, though, you can check out the full box office report over on Film.com.
