Questions for the Producers of the New G.I. Joe Movie

1. Um, yeah, that guy? Not exactly giving off a "Destro" vibe.

2. Heavy Duty? HEAVY DUTY?! Are you kidding me? I'm going to ask the same question kids across America asked when the character of Heavy Duty debuted back in 1991:


For those unfamiliar with the G.I. Joe roster, the post of heavy machine gun expert was filled by two enormous black men with shaved heads. You could tell them apart because Roadblock was the one with a personality and an interesting backstory and tremendous popularity among the fans, and Heavy Duty had NOTHING.

Never mind the uproar over rumors of the downplaying of the Joes' American-ness, the "international strike force headquartered in Switzerland" angle, and the casting of Marlon Wayans in an action movie. You sumbitches picked Heavy Duty over Roadblock, and I ain't havin' it.

Iron Man News - Animated and otherwise

Compiled by Banana Oil:
Iron Man 2 (duh) was announced for 2010. The masterplan also includes Thor and Captain America films, all leading into the big Avengers movie.

Between now and 2010 are smaller Marvel projects: the Wolverine solo movie and Punisher 2: War Zone.

Making the cable and syndication rounds will be new series of X-Men, Hulk, and Iron Man toons, and the recently announced Black Panther cartoon for BET.

The 90s Iron Man and Spider-Man series have been bought up by Toon Disney, which means they're sure to make a play for the 90s X-men series soon.

In the direct to dvd animation department: Next Avengers (all-new concept--sons and daughters of the Avengers vs. Ultron), Planet Hulk, and the very underappreciated comic Thor: Son of Asgard ("The Adventures of Thor...When He Was a Boy!(tm)") are the next wave of dvds.
