Mark Wahlberg Wants to Take Over Iron Man for Robert Downey, Jr.

Anyone who has been following superhero movies knows that Robert Downey, Jr. has signed on to return as Tony Stark in 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron' and 'The Avengers 3,' but his future as Iron Man beyond that is up in the air. It's unlikely that Downey (who will be 53 when the third 'Avengers' film hits) will occupy the role forever, and Marvel hasn't been shy about recasting the character should the need ever arise.

And that brings us to the weird news bit of the day: Mark Wahlberg wants to takeover the part.

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘Elysium’ Wins a Busy Weekend

In a weekend with four new major releases but no definitive frontrunners, the Matt Damon sci-fi action flick 'Elysium' snagged the top spot over some seemingly powerful competition. Director Neill Blomkamp's film continues this summer's trend of R-rated fare opening big ('The Purge,' 'The Conjuring,' '2 Guns') and proves that there's plenty of box office success to be had in the typically slow final weeks of the season.

‘Now You See Me 2′ is in the Cards

In a summer filled with extremely expensive films falling on their faces, the reasonably budgeted magician thriller 'Now You See Me' has proven itself to be one of the biggest successes of the year. And you know what this means, right? A sequel is already being planned, of course. If we're lucky, they'll have the nerve to call it 'Now You Don't' or 'Now You See Me Again' or 'Look Who's Seeing Me Now.'

‘Man of Steel 2′: Is Mark Strong the Next Lex Luthor? [UPDATED]

UPDATE: Additional speculation suggests that 'Breaking Bad' star Bryan Cranston may also be up for the role. Between these two actors, which would you rather see get the part?

As eagle-eyed fans the world over will tell you, 'Man of Steel' contained numerous references to LexCorp, the company run by iconic Superman villain Lex Luthor. Naturally, tongues started wagging and everyone immediately assumed that the bald baddie would play a major role in the inevitable sequel. And then the fantasy casting began.

And now, Mark Strong has hinted that the role may be his.

Bryan Cranston Voiced a ‘Power Rangers’ Villain, and There’s Footage to Prove It

Before the critical accolades of 'Breaking Bad,' before the memorable stint on 'Malcolm in the Middle,' the great Bryan Cranston was just a working actor, the kind of guy who couldn't say no to a part unless he decided he didn't want to pay his rent. This means that the early filmography of the man who would be Walter White is filled with all kinds of odd projects ... and 'Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers,' a fact that Jay Leno dredged up when Cranston appeared on 'The Tonight Show.'

Steven Spielberg Drops ‘American Sniper’ as His ‘Lincoln’ Follow-Up

For the past few months, it looked like Steven Spielberg was going to follow up the massive success of 'Lincoln' with 'American Sniper,' a war film about the career of slain Navy SEAL Chris Kyle. Despite plenty of momentum and the starpower of Bradley Cooper in the lead role, Spielberg, along with production company DreamWorks, has dropped the project and vanished to wherever he goes when he needs to decide what movie he wants to direct next.

Watch the Video Pitch for the Legend of Zelda Movie That Never Was

Despite having a stable of iconic characters that are known throughout the world, Nintendo has stayed pretty clear of the movie business, with the disastrous 'Super Mario Brothers' movie being the video game company's only real Hollywood experience. However, a recently revealed video proves that they haven't been without offers. Did you know that animation company Imagi tried to pitch a Legend of Zelda movie a few years back? We didn't either.

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘2 Guns’ Shoots Down ‘The Smurfs 2′

Ah, the continuing appeal of the one and only Denzel Washington. How much do people love this guy? They love him so much that they'll transform just about any movie he appears in into a respectable hit, even if that movie is a poorly marketed (but well-reviewed) action movie based on a comic book that no one read. We shouldn't be surprised that '2 Guns' shot to the top of the box office, but we are a little. Oh, Denzel Washington, you always catch us off guard.
