5:57

As previously mentioned, the MAN OF STEEL himself is moderating comngsoon.net

Comment From Guest
Got it for you….. http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20110313183410AAKVGg9

6:04
Comment From WhileWeWait
While we’re waiting, can you just give us one more cool tidbit from Comic Con (instead of all this marriage talk)?

6:05
ComingSoon.net: There’s a lot of dressed up people?

6:05
Comment From IamIronMan
Can we have a Q & A with you guys in this format? Similar to an AMA on reddit. Think it would be pretty cool

6:06
ComingSoon.net: Maybe, someday. Today it’s not about us ;)

6:08
Comment From Aaron
Is this panel purely on Iron Man 3, or are they covering other Marvel properties as well?

6:08
EDouglasCS: Yeah, we should do an “Ask ComingSoon/SuperHeroHype” evening… I’d be up for that.

6:08
EDouglasCS: And yes, ladies, I am single! I know you’ve been wondering.

6:08
ComingSoon.net: It’s Marvel, they always have surprises.

6:08
EDouglasCS: I know the surprises…. :)

6:09
Comment From Guti
Why is Hollywood never on time? 6PM should mean 6PM

6:09
ComingSoon.net: This isn’t in Hollywood :)

6:09
EDouglasCS: Guti, it’s because they have to get people in and out, both the talent and the audience and it’s really tough when you have that big a place. The talent basically has to be walked over from across the street

6:11
Comment From Cam Cheline
@EDouglasCS what do you think of the IM3 Extremis suit? I’m hoping it looks better in person then it does in the pics. That gold is so fugly.

6:11
EDouglasCS: Yeah, lots of people complaining about the gold.. Shane mentioned that in the press conference earlier. I haven’t really seen it up close. I guess it’s one of the suits in the Marvel booth?

6:12
Comment From Kevin
Will you guys be covering the Kevin Smith Q&A?

6:12
Silas Lesnick: We’re live!

6:12
EDouglasCS: Sorry, Kevin, we don’t normally cover those.

6:12
EDouglasCS: Woooooo!

6:12
Silas Lesnick: A montage looked back on all the years of Comic-Con presentations

6:12
Silas Lesnick: Way back to Kevin Feige saying in 2006 that he’d love to see an AVENGERS film happen

6:12
Silas Lesnick: It ends with a big thank you to the crowd for helping to assemble the Marvel universe on the screen

6:12
Silas Lesnick: the final title reads…

6:13
Silas Lesnick: PHASE TWO BEGINS…

6:13
Silas Lesnick: NOW!

6:13
Silas Lesnick: Feige is now giving an update

6:13
Silas Lesnick: IRON MAN 3 is halfway through production

6:13
Silas Lesnick: THOR 2 is filming in London now

6:13
Silas Lesnick: THOR 2: THE DARK WORLD

6:14
Silas Lesnick: Sorry, THOR: THE DARK WORLD

6:14
Silas Lesnick: No 2

6:14
Silas Lesnick: CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER

6:14
Silas Lesnick: Very, very applause on that title!

6:15
Silas Lesnick: very MUCH applause, that is

6:15
Silas Lesnick: They’re showing concept art for GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY!

6:15
Silas Lesnick: Including a painting of Rocket Raccoon!

6:15
Silas Lesnick: They’re about to announce the team!

6:16
Silas Lesnick: Star-Lord, Draxx the Destroyer, Groot and Rocket Raccoon

6:17
Silas Lesnick: And Gamorra

6:17
Silas Lesnick: Edgar Wright has come on stage!

6:17
Silas Lesnick: “I’m taking the Terrence Malick approach to super heroes,” he says about his slow progress on ANT-MAN

6:18
Silas Lesnick: They’re teasing test footage, but say it’s unfinished

6:18
Silas Lesnick: They’re going to show it!

6:20
Silas Lesnick: Nice! The costume looks a lot like the IRREDEEMABLE ANT-MAN costume

6:20
Silas Lesnick: The face is completely covered, so we don’t know who the actor is

6:20
Silas Lesnick: It’s a black suit with red highlights

6:21
Silas Lesnick: The scene is a hallway with two guardians (maybe shield agents?) guarding a door at the end

6:21
Silas Lesnick: on the opposite end of the hallway is a vent and, at it, stands Ant-Man at only a few inches high

6:22
Silas Lesnick: He leaps down and we see him running down the massive hallway

6:22
Silas Lesnick: Suddenly there’s a flash and he’s full sized, charging the guards.

6:22
Silas Lesnick: He leaps and flashes again. He punches one at his tiny size and one of the guy’s teeth goes flying out of his mouth as he crashed into a panel.

6:23
Silas Lesnick: Ant-Man slides down the tie of the other man and returns to full size, flipping him over

6:23
Silas Lesnick: He gets in the door, apparently an elevator, at full size and, with another flash, is gone

6:23
Silas Lesnick: The title comes up, just plain ANT-MAN

6:23
Silas Lesnick: “He’s going to kick your ass one inch at a time,” says Edgar

6:23
Silas Lesnick: There’s no casting yet.

6:24
Silas Lesnick: Robert Downey Jr. has made a sudden appearance, marching straight down the center of the hall

6:24
EDouglasCS: Silas, did they say anything about release dates for either Guardians or Ant-Man?

6:28
Silas Lesnick: Another huge win on the footage front with IRON MAN 3!

6:28
Silas Lesnick: We begin in Stark’s lab. He’s talking to “dummy” and his suits of armor, telling them he’s about to introduce them to their badass baby brother

6:29
Silas Lesnick: He asks Dummy to play some seasonal music and he turns on a techno version of Jingle Bells

6:29
Silas Lesnick: Stark stands, posing and flexing. Suddenly a piece of armor shoots across the room

6:29
Silas Lesnick: One by one, his armor form, flying at him as he wills it to

6:30
Silas Lesnick: One hits his crotch, through, and he doubles over

6:30
Silas Lesnick: Another slams into his back and he falls, but jet-propels himself back up

6:30
Silas Lesnick: The last piece is the faceplate and, as it comes at him, he flips, propeling himself off the crowd with one hand upside down while the mask comes on

6:31
Silas Lesnick: We see another scene with Favreau as Happy talking to Stark through a video chat

6:31
Silas Lesnick: “You can’t talk to me like that,” he tells Stark good humoredly, “I don’t work for you anymore.”

6:31
Silas Lesnick: “That’s because you quit!” says Stark

6:31
Silas Lesnick: He says he can’t deal with Stark being off with the Superfriends these days

6:32
Silas Lesnick: We see a bunch of footage — Guy Pearce’s character — The Iron Patriot armor

6:32
Silas Lesnick: “Some people call me a terrorist,” says a voice (I don’t think it’s Kingsley)

6:32
Silas Lesnick: “I consider myself a teacher. Lesson number one: There is no such thing as heroes.”

6:33
Silas Lesnick: We see a bunch of helicopters firing on Stark’s house, blowing it off the edge of the cliff

6:33
Silas Lesnick: Inside, every suit of armor is destroyed

6:33
Silas Lesnick: Iron Man falls into the ocean as wreckage comes down on top of him

6:33
Silas Lesnick: Cut to…

6:33
Silas Lesnick: Ben Kingsley as The Mandarin

6:33
Silas Lesnick: It’s the costume from the comic almost exactly

6:34
Silas Lesnick: The footage ends and they’re even calling him the Mandarin now

6:34
Silas Lesnick: Downey is taking credit for Shawarma sales being up 700 percent

6:35
EDouglasCS: He deserves to take credit for that!

6:35
Silas Lesnick: He says that every movie he ever makes he thinks is going to be one of the three biggest movies ever and it finally happened

6:35
Silas Lesnick: Favreau, Downey, Shane Black, Kevin Feige,Don Cheadle are on stage

6:36
Silas Lesnick: Downey is wearing an Iron Man colored shirt and tie and an actual Iron Man glove

6:37
Silas Lesnick: He says KISS KISS BANG BANG was what Favreau used to prove to the studio that he was right for the role

6:37
Silas Lesnick: Downey says his wife hates living with him when he’s playing Tony Stark

6:38
Silas Lesnick: Black says that they’re halfway through and, if they don’t f– up the rest, it’s going to be great

6:39
Silas Lesnick: Stephanie Szostak is in the film, which I think is a new bit of casting

6:40
Silas Lesnick: They didn’t say who she’s playing, though

6:40
Silas Lesnick: Black says the film isn’t going to wind up like SPIDER-MAN 3

6:41
Silas Lesnick: Favreau says he feels like a proud grandfather who doesn’t have to change the diapers but who gets to play with the baby

6:42
Silas Lesnick: Cheadle says his suit takes a half hour to put on. Downey says his takes a minute.

6:42
Silas Lesnick: “Racism!” says Cheadle

6:42
Silas Lesnick: “But his gets bigger guns,” says Downey

6:43
Silas Lesnick: Downey says his contract is up after IRON MAN 3 and then he has to decide what Brinks trunk he wants to continue

6:43
ComingSoon.net: Picture of the Guardians of the Galaxy from the panel;

6:44
Silas Lesnick: I don’t think that’s the Guardians :)

6:44
ComingSoon.net: Let’s try that again, haha;

6:44
Silas Lesnick: A man in a full, impressive IRON MAN costume asked Downey if it was alright to borrow the suit

6:44
Silas Lesnick: Downey asked how long it took him to get into it

6:44
Silas Lesnick: “Five minutes,” he said.

6:45
Silas Lesnick: Cheadle, with mock rage, stood up and stormed off the stage

6:45
Silas Lesnick: (but came right back)

6:46
Silas Lesnick: Black says they’re going back to the roots of IRON MAN and trying to find the myth of it all

6:46
Silas Lesnick: Black says that Downey really is Tony Stark

6:47
Silas Lesnick: “So I’m an asshole,” asks Downey?

6:47
Silas Lesnick: “Yeah,” says Cheadle, “But a rich asshole.”

6:47
Silas Lesnick: Someone is asking about Stark’s alcoholism, but Black says that it doesn’t play a big role in this movie

6:48
Silas Lesnick: “He’s got the plug in the jug this time,” says Downey

6:50
Silas Lesnick: Drew Pearce is apparently in the audience, but they can’t find him

6:50
Silas Lesnick: “No!” shouts Downey, “Don’t show the guy who is doing all the work!”

6:52
Silas Lesnick: Everyone is about to sing Happy Birthday to a girl asking a question

6:53
Silas Lesnick: She also asked Downey if he could pick any color for his suit without offending Stan Lee, what would it be?

6:53
Silas Lesnick: “Does mauve offend anyone?” he says

6:54
Silas Lesnick: “Will we see Bruce Banner?” someone asks

6:54
Silas Lesnick: “If you remember THE AVENGERS,” says Feige, “Stark left with him in the car…”

6:54
Silas Lesnick: “but he dropped him at the Port Authority and we’ll see him another day.”

6:58
Silas Lesnick: They just showed the footage again.

6:58
Silas Lesnick: Mandarin is wearing at least four rings

6:59
Silas Lesnick: And he cocks a gun in the shot

7:00
Silas Lesnick: That’s the end of the panel! Thanks everyone!
