I like Don Cheele but I still think they should have kept Terrence Howard.  I really don't get the thought process behind that.

But, I'd be up for a War Machine film at some point and I hope IM3 (and 4 if they do it) will be as good as the first two at least.  I still think RDJr as Tony Stark was one of the best casting decisions for a comic book movie ever.

Hands down.  He is the perfect Tony Stark from crazy inventor to macho ladies man to pompous rich guy to throw down, determined hero.  All with a splash of dead pan comic tossed in.  Easily one of my top 3 favorite actors based on the IM flicks alone.

Its not much, but a preview of the Super Bowl commercial is up online (or, essentially, a preview of the preview) :)

There was also a twitter chat with Joss Whedon and some of the cast earlier today, that you can read through here:

I think this tops my "Most Anticipated" list for the year.  I have been waiting 30 years for this movie.  It looks awesome, and I love Joss' work.  Can't wait!

All I know is the trailer they showed during the SB SUCKED out loud.

Apparently they are teaming up to battle a series of randomly exploding cars?

Really psyched for this movie as well.  The SB spot didn't necessarily have a ton of new footage, but I still think it looks pretty cool.  Just that shot of all of them sort of back to back ready for the fight gave me goosebumps.  If you haven't seen the extended version that DSJ posted, definitely check it out - some cool stuff at the end there.

The extended trailer is pretty awesome.  Especially the shots with the Hulk!

Looking at the trailer in still frames, I'm starting to wonder if Loki has enlisted the Frost Giants of Jotunheim.

You'll also notice Avengers fighting each other...Loki mind control...no?  I had heard that the Skrulls were involved at one point in time...perhaps they might be the Frost Giants you are seeing Nick?

Look more like Skrulls to me, despite denials.  Frost Giants weren't armored like that.

Kevin Feige recently stated that the Skrulls are NOT involved in the Avengers.  But the aliens in The Avengers are a race of aliens that have previously appeared in Marvel comics.

I thought the the Skrulls (or at least the name) couldn't be used due to them being somehow tied into the Fantastic Four movie rights at Fox.  Not sure if that is true or not.  I believe there were shape-shifting, skrull-like aliens in the Ultimates books (which a lot of the movie stuff seems to come from), but I can't recall their name right now without digging out my books.  Regardless, all signs point to it being some sort of alien race - hadn't heard anything about Frost giants previously, but I guess that is possible too.

The Avengers have encountered lots of alien races.  Those do not look like Skrulls to me - if they were, you'd think they would be many different shapes and sizes in the midst of battle.  The picture looks like three-toed big blue feet...I would guess that these are some kind of Frost Giant in armor.  If so, there may also be an alien race not pictured - maybe someone like the Kree?
