Iron Man 3

Iron Man 3: Robert Downey Jr. looks like he’s had a bad day at the office in a new image from the upcoming Iron Man 3. That follows up a previous image that showed costar Rebecca Hall looked battered and bruised. Reportedly, the movie is lighter than these images are indicating, but right now Marvel is making this three-quel appear to be the darkest one yet. Iron Man 3 opens the summer blockbuster season on May 3, 2013. []

The Twilight Zone: Bryan Singer has not given up on television, even though the pilot episode he directed for Mockingbird Lane, a rebooted version of The Munsters, did not get picked up to series. Now he’s leading the way for yet another rebooted version of Rod Serling’s classic The Twilight Zone, signing up to “develop, executive produce and possibly direct.” A separate movie version inspired by the series is still in development, with Matt Reeves attached to direct, though we’ve not heard anything on that one for more than a year.

Ben Affleck: In view of his ongoing promotional responsibilities on the awards circuit for Argo, along with other creative projects, Ben Affleck has decided to drop out of his commitment to star in Focus, a con man-themed flick in which he would have starred opposite Kristen Stewart. The movie, to be directed by John Requa and Glen Ficarra (Crazy, Stupid, Love.), will now begin a search for a new leading man. [The Hollywood Reporter]

The Great Gatsby Trailer: Leonardo DiCaprio looks more like a dynamic action star -- and less like a tragic romantic figure -- in a terrific new trailer for The Great Gatsby, Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming 3D version of the timeless F. Scott Fitzgerald novel. Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire lead the supporting cast; the movie is due out on May 10, 2013. [Apple via Slash Film]

The Heat Trailer: We just saw Melissa McCarthy in a new trailer opposite Jason Bateman in Identity Thief, and now she displays her skills as a foul-mouthed Boston cop who teams with FBI agent Sandra Bullock to bring down a drug ring in a new red-band (i.e. NSFW) trailer for The Heat. The movie, directed by Paul Feig (Bridesmaids), opens on March 5, 2013. [IGN]
