IRON MAN 3

A new trailer for "Iron Man 3" hit today, and Yahoo! Movies has an interview with Robert Downey Jr. to bring it a little more attention. The actor spoke briefly about the filming process, which included time shooting in the Iron Man Heads-Up Display. Shooting the HUD scenes allowed the production team to refine the film a bit more.

"We had the luxury of being efficient enough to sometimes say, 'Stop, stop. Wait a second. Let's not just shoot these next 20 lines. Let's look at the scene and how can we make it a little better or different.'"

Check out the new trailer below, set to release at 9:00 AM PT/12:00 PM ET.

THE AVENGERS 2

Digital Spy spoke briefly with Joss Whedon about the progress of "The Avengers 2," and the director gave a very quick report.

"I'm not as far as I'd like to be, but I have the whole thing outlined," Whedon told Digital Spy. "I'm really exited about it and it's just a question of getting the time to write it all down."

Whedon also said there would be a certain amount of spectacle to the sequel, but it would also have some more exploration into character. "I do have a greater opportunity to dig into the relationships in the second one and that's what's really exciting about it," he said.

Whedon also debunked the "Planet Hulk" storyline rumor to IGN, saying, "Well, I'm really not supposed to comment on it, but no, that's nonsense."

THE WALKING DEAD

IGN spoke with Andrew Lincoln, Steven Yeun and Robert Kirkman during PaleyFest this past weekend, with the actors and creators commenting on more developments for the cast as the season progresses.

Airs Sundays on AMC

GAME OF THRONES

Although "Game of Thrones" has yet to air its third season, series actor Charles Dance may have just confirmed the existences of season four to Den of Geek.

"We’re about to start season four aren’t we? This year. We get scripts pretty early on, much earlier on than in similar series, usually you get perhaps one episode and you just have to trust that what’s going to come in subsequent episodes is going to be as good as the one you’ve got, but in this I think there are six scripts already written, and we will probably be able to see them with more than adequate time to prepare before we start shooting."

Den of Geek notes an HBO representative reminded the present press that season four has not yet been green-lit.

Season three premieres March 31 on HBO

TOMB RAIDER

Interestingly enough, Variety reports "Tomb Raider" developer Crystal Dynamics is working with GK Films to develop a film based on the video game reboot, which hit stores today.

"It was important for both of us to have a cohesive version of the franchise," Crystal Dynamics head Darrell Gallagher told Variety. "We didn’t want to see a film version that was a continuation of the old 'Tomb Raider' films."

UNTITLED KIRKMAN EXORCISM SHOW

Robert Kirkman is at it again. "The Walking Dead" is one of cable's most successful television shows and his "Thief of Thieves" is under development at AMC. Now, a third show based on Kirkman's comic work is under development, but it's actually based on a series that hasn't yet been published. The show, based on the as-yet-unnamed series, centers around exorcism and a man named Kyle Barnes, who has been plagued by possession since childhood.
