IRON MAN 3

To celebrate the beginning of production on "Iron Man 3," Marvel has released a new photo of Tony Stark's armory with cases that contain the Iron Man suits Marks I through VI.

Latino Review posits that the newest addition to Tony Stark's car collection is a super-rare Bugatti worth over $2 million. The website has also posted some factoids about the car, which seem pretty impressive.

"The new model will also feature an all-new body said to be inspired by the original Bugatti Veyron concept of 1999. This concept was designed by the current head of Bugatti design, Walter de Silva – former SEAT head of design. The new car will have a top speed of 434km/h… in case the first edition wasn’t fast enough with its 408km/h top speed. The engine will be based on the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport’s 8.0-litre quad-turbo W16 motor, showcasing around 895kW of power and 1500Nm of torque."

Moving into semi-spoiler territory, Comic Book Movie has posted some on-location photos from Cary, North Carolina, the most interesting of which may indicate a new potential antagonist for Iron Man and possibly the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

DREDD

According to Spinoff Online, "Dredd" has a new plot synopsis and a new image courtesy of the film's Facebook page. Check out the image and synopsis below.

"The future America is an irradiated waste land. On its East Coast, running from Boston to Washington D.C., lies Mega City One- a vast, violent metropolis where criminals rule the chaotic streets. The only force of order lies with the urban cops called “Judges” who possess the combined powers of judge, jury and instant executioner. Known and feared throughout the city, Dredd (Karl Urban) is the ultimate Judge, challenged with ridding the city of its latest scourge – a dangerous drug epidemic that has users of “Slo-Mo” experiencing reality at a fraction of its normal speed.

"During a routine day on the job, Dredd is assigned to train and evaluate Cassandra Anderson (Olivia Thirlby), a rookie with powerful psychic abilities thanks to a genetic mutation. A heinous crime calls them to a neighborhood where fellow Judges rarely dare to venture- a 200 story vertical slum controlled by prostitute turned drug lord Ma-Ma (Lena Headey) and her ruthless clan. When they capture one of the clan’s inner circle, Ma-Ma overtakes the compound’s control center and wages a dirty, vicious war against the Judges that proves she will stop at nothing to protect her empire. With the body count climbing and no way out, Dredd and Anderson must confront the odds and engage in the relentless battle for their survival.

"The endlessly inventive mind of writer Alex Garland and director Pete Travis bring Dredd to life as a futuristic neo-noir action film. Filmed in 3D with stunning slow motion photography sequences, the film returns the celebrated character to the dark, visceral incarnation from John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra’s revered comic strip."
