As the title states, we may be closer to the awesome holographic touch interface we’re familiar from the Iron Man movies. We’ve all seen the amazing holographic interface that Stark uses on a daily basis to do anything ranging from surfing the internet to creating complex (and brand new) elements to add to the table. While we may be far from light-based ocular constructs, we are getting ever so close to the pinnacle of touch screen technology. Now if we can only figure out a way to make awesome omni-tool based devices by solidifying light and adding circuits and other fancy things. A geek can dream! The best part about the leap is that it is indeed available for pre-order if not purchase now for around 70$. While that may seem a little expensive, it’s generally up to the consumer to figure out if they ‘need’ it or not. Let me know what you all think.

Talented artist FerioWind combined two favorite pop culture worlds: Marvel and Pokemon.  In each of these pictures, Avengers major players have been paired with fitting Pokemon.  Thor and his electrics, Loki and his dark types, etc. etc. I particularly like the irony of Hulk’s Pokemon being the cuddliest.  I suppose it calms him.  I am a generation 1 + 2 man, so some of these don’t register with me, but combining Hawkeye and Pidgeot was a good call.  Below I’ve compiled all their individual profiles with the addition of Agent Phil and others!

He’s absolutely more known for the Avengers, but let’s take another step back into something he’s done in the past. No, not Dollhouse, that weird prostitute show that starred the sexy Eliza Dushku. No not Buffy: The Vampire Slayer that pre-Twilight vampire crazed show that starred the sexy Sarah Michelle Gellar. But right inbetween there: Firefly. And that’s today’s awesome mash up that combines two of Joss Whedons ultimate babies. I’ve posted before what was already missing from the Avengers, and this is also very relevant.

In Firefly related news, I heard they had a panel and the San Diego Comic Con, where he teared up at the many fans who showed up. Dammit, what I’d give to get that show back on the air. For nostalgia sake, the original opening is below.

College Humor has created another hilarious video.  This one is a hypothetical situation where Bruce Banner and his girlfriend are getting a little frisky.  She wants one thing, he wants something else, and what ensues is pretty hilarious.  Not to mention fairly well done.  I understand that these days College Humor is pretty well established and they have quite the budget to play with, but CGI of this caliber ain’t that bad.

The set of Iron Man 3 has released some photos. It looks like it’s the first Marvel to be released after the craze of The Avengers. With one of their first released photos, we see Tony Stark looking upon the many suits he’s made during his trilogy [about to technically be a quadrilogy]. Yahoo! has compiled the back story and appearance of these seven suits in a neat gallery. Be sure to check out the link below.

As a followup to one of my earlier posts concerning action figures from the Avengers movie, here is a tiny Black Widow action figure for you to drool over. Noticeably absent from the original cast of action figures, we now see that the figurine was definitely worth the wait. Lifelike to an extent, this collectible definitely belongs with the other celebrity look-a-like Avengers. Check out a gallery of photos from Kotaku in the link below.

If there was ever a way to start off a very promising blockbuster summer, The Avengers was a proper way to do it.  If there are any movie/Marvel skeptics out there, it takes a lot of stubborn ignorance to deny the marvel (Oh lulz I get it!) of what has been accomplished here.  Starting in 2008 as a vague idea that may or may not form came a movie with so much star power and ambition that it was easy to dismiss this as an action-oriented ‘Valentine’s Day’ that had so many A-listers that each one would eventually be fighting for star power and screen time.  Not only this, but there are 60 years of myth-lore and a rabid fan base that had to be dealt with for this movie to be successful.

It’s almost amazing how it all turned out.  In 4 years, Marvel meticulously planned in each of their corresponding movies how they would  set up this behemoth.  Without these previous movies, character development of these famed heroes would be lost.  So after countless infamous post-credit cut scenes in The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor, and Captain America, Joss Whedon delivered what was thought to be the impossible.  A coherent, action-packed, well-written 2 and a half hour ride that perfectly balances its down to Earth heroes and deliciously evil villain despite an ambitiously star-studded cast.  Slight spoilers.

The people at Uproxx [which is a lot of people I might add, they maintain several websites], hilariously came up with how Robert Downey Jr. has created some of the most memorable characters in the past 3-4 years.  It’s quite unfortunate that recently, he’s too busy making sequels for these multimillion dollar franchises rather stepping out and creating more characters as unique as Kirk Lazarus or any other of his eccentric and likable characters.  The man is highly talented and I can’t wait to see what he comes to do next.

Collider has found a new trailer for the Avengers that gives us a couple of more glances at what the movie has to offer.  Unfortunately it’s still in Russian.

Since Disney now owns Marvel, Disney’s D23 Expo has released the first piece of concept art for the upcoming 2012 film.  I don’t usually do two posts in a day, as I’d run out of fresh material, but this is just too cool to pass up.  Enjoy close ups after the jump.
