If you aren’t in the loop, here is where you can catch up on all the upcoming Marvel movies. “Phase Two” as the studio is calling it, continues the adventures of the quintessential Avengers and introduces new super-heroes to cinemas, like Ant-man, and this suspicious-looking, gun-carrying raccoon. If my guess is right, the animal is a character in Guardians of the Galaxy, and I haven’t the faintest idea what that story is about besides what it implies.
Iron Man 3 comes to theaters May 3rd, 2013 and stars Robert Downey Jr., Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Gwyneth Paltrow, Ben Kingsley, Paul Bettany, Don Cheadle, Jon Favreau. The film is directed by Shane Black.

Seriously, I want to know if the raccoon is a good idea. I don’t know if general audiences are ready for that. Can you take Iron Man and Captian America seriously if they are fighting along side of a super-raccoon?
Hm. Maybe it’s no different than having Thor — the god of thunder — as a super-hero.
