Joss Whedon to direct "The Avengers"

Joss Whedon has been brought on to direct the new Avengers movie coming in May 2012. The cast will feature many of the lead actors from other Marvel film adaptations, including Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Chris Evans (Captain America), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury) and more.

Whedon’s credits include: “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Firefly,” “Angel,” “Serenity,” “Dollhouse,” and the upcoming film “Cabin in the Woods.”

Personally, despite not ever being excited for comic adaptations, I can’t wait for this one. I’m a fan of Whedon’s projects so this one should prove to be interesting. It’s also great that they’re keeping the original current actors from the various characters this will include. I’m pretty certain that had they cast someone else as Iron Man for this film, I wouldn’t watch it. At all.

Screw energy drinks. An arc reactor is all your need. [Toys]

Ever felt that afternoon crash around 2 or 3pm while at work? Energy drinks can get you peppy but leave you to crash later.  Want real, sustained energy? Put an Arc Reactor on your chest.  Get the same energy that can power a military grade suit for the price of a toy.

Ok, yes fine. The truth is, this Iron Man 2 toy doesn’t give you more energy than a Red Bull. It’s probably a battery power LED light inside of plastic. But isn’t part of the fun of being a kid playing pretend? So let me pretend! Available for pre-order now at Entertainment Earth for $7.59.

Mr. Potato + Iron Man = Tony Starch

The 107th American International Toy Fair is taking place right now in New York City.  I’m not a big toy collector (though I do still have my massive childhood collection of Ninja Turtles and He-Man action figures), but I think I just might need to pick up Hasbro’s newest Mr. Potato Head rendition.  In honor of Iron Man 2 coming out this summer, they will be releasing “Tony Starch”, an Iron Man armor-clad Potato Head.  Pure genius.

So I thought I’d search the web to find all the geeky Mr. Potato Heads  that Hasbro has put out to date.  Check after the jump to see what I found (including… Darth Tater). Read On
