How would the world end?
Evil Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman cross into our dimension and declare martial law. Right when they complete their takeover, good Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman show up and begin an all-out battle across the globe. The Evil Justice League is defeated, but everything is destroyed in the crossfire. The trio give a terse "You're welcome" before disappearing back into their own dimension.

Iron Man 3

Marvel’s “Iron Man 3” pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy's hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?

Starring Robert Downey, Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Stephanie Szostak, James Badge Dale with Jon Favreau and Ben Kingsley, “Iron Man 3” is directed by Shane Black from a screenplay by Drew Pearce and Shane Black and is based on Marvel’s iconic super hero Iron Man, who first appeared in the pages of TALES OF SUSPENSE #39 in 1963 and had his solo comic book debut with THE INVINCIBLE IRON MAN #1 in May of 1968.

“Iron Man 3” is presented by Marvel Studios in association with Paramount Pictures and DMG Entertainment. Marvel Studios’ President Kevin Feige is producing and Jon Favreau, Louis D'Esposito, Stephen Broussard, Victoria Alonso, Alan Fine, Charles Newirth, Stan Lee and Dan Mintz are executive producers. The film releases May 3, 2013, and is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.

Many say it looks a lot like the 5th Doctor (Peter Davidson) TARDIS.

I checked with noted Gallifreyan language expert Black Hat Guy and he says the text in the TARDIS is made up.

The Dark Knight Rises was the #1 movie trailer viewed on YouTube in 2012.

  1. Thanks for listing my movie list!
    Your apocalypse is funny.
    And that photo with the pollution is strangely eerie...

  2. That Tardis thing is pretty roomy for a phone booth. I guess you have to think 4-dimensionally.

  3. i believe i would rather travel in the TARDIS, then be aboard the ENTERPRISE... now if they could be both together... i could have worlds within... thank you for the listing... i just got a whole lot of behind the scenes and premieres photos from the avengers... so under contract by Disney have to use them and credit too... so much more stuff coming. have a grand day!

  4. did i mention... nice end of the world post...

  5. I'm glad the new Iron Man will deal with the whole armor thing, because it obviously came up in The Avengers, and now we'll have Tony Stark address it rather than bring out another variant.

  6. I still want to know why the Iron Patriot suit is in IM3.

  7. I wonder how many times RDJ is going to get his ass kicked in Iron Man 3?

    1. I wonder how many times RDJ is going to get his a$$ kicked in Iron Man 3?

  8. Great points Jeremy. A fun ride! Looking forward to the pics

  9. I think I have an idea what your taking about Tony. But just to be sure could you be specific about free "armor thing?"

  10. Good question. It's Rhodes, but why the paint job?
