The original suit that Robert Downey Jr wore in Marvel's first Iron Man movie has been reported missing to the Los Angeles Police Department.
The Avengers are Avengers for life. Five of the stars of the Marvel series have got themselves inked with the same Avengers symbol by the same tattoo artist. “Five of the original six Avengers got a tattoo,” Robert Downey Jr. told Entertainment Weekly.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe's first – and to some best – movie, Iron Man, was unveiled to the world 10 years ago today.
For a film that’s been set up by a whopping 18 preceding films, “Avengers: Infinity War” does a magnificent job of pulling together all the previous setups into one unified whole. The nineteenth entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe – with a currently untitled sequel coming to cinemas next year – sees the various superheroes struggling to prevent a powerful alien villain, Thanos, from acquiring the power to commit universal genocide. The film’s sprawling cast necessitates that they be split into smaller, more manageable groups, so as to have any sort of meaningful interaction between characters.
Extremely unlikely to have hidden at the back of the class for much longer, the folks behind Honest Trailers have taken aim at the box office-busting ‘Captain America: Civil War’.

Together as Avengers, Earth’s mightiest heroes form an unstoppable box-office juggernaut: the combined Marvel Cinematic Universe has banked over £5.62 billion around the world since its inception in 2008. But is playing a superhero rewarding when the actors aren’t in the spandex? Which Avenger makes the most coin outside the MCU? Let’s fire up the calculator, check the receipts and find out… 10.
This weekend, Avengers: Age of Ultron smashed the box-office, making it already one of the year’s most successful movies. It’s further proof of just how far Ultron writer-director Joss Whedon has come since the ‘90s, when he was the creator of the beloved Buffy, the Vampire Slayer, a show known for its well-crafted group dynamics, unexpected bursts of mid-catastrophe comedy, and zingy references to movies, TV, and books. If those elements seem familiar to Marvel fans, it’s because Whedon’s brought many of them to the Avengers films — especially those smartly placed one-liners: In Age of Ultron, the characters riff on everything from cartoon characters to highbrow literature to the Bible.
How can something designed for good turn out to be so bad? Ultron is unlike any other Marvel movie villain we’ve seen in that he was created by an Avenger.
