• Marvel's Phase Three: A Robert Downey Jr.-Less 'Iron Man 4'?

(Photo: Paramount Pictures)As "Iron Man 3" continues to rake in the cash (it's surpassed the $1 billion mark worldwide and counting), everyone's abuzz about "Iron Man 4." Such an endeavor would seem like a no-brainer for Marvel, and the studio is completely dedicated to doing it ... whether Robert Downey Jr. is on board or not.

    It's no secret that Downey Jr. has expressed reservations about returning for another stand-alone Tony Stark adventure, especially considering that it wouldn't happen until well after "The Avengers 2," which doesn't hit theaters until May 2015.

    "I'd go start another one tomorrow, but it’s not tomorrow,” Downey told Entertainment Weekly, with

    How would Superman fare as a member of the crew on "Deadliest Catch"?

    We'll probably never know, but the new "Behind the Scenes" preview for "Man of Steel," director Zack Snyder's upcoming reboot of the "Superman" saga, promises a newly introspective look at Clark Kent and his alter ego while working a variety of odd jobs as he tries to make sense of life on Earth before accepting his destiny as a hero.

    "He's an incredibly conflicted, lonely, and lost person," says Henry Cavill, the man who plays the Man of Steel, and while this "Behind The Scenes" preview offers plenty of the expected heroics from Superman, we also see him trying to fit into traditional human society, a hero struggling to be ordinary.

    Wearing work clothes and a slightly scruffy beard, Superman – excuse me, Clark Kent – handles steel on a construction site, tries to hitch a ride from a logging truck, and works aboard a fishing boat, tossing cages into the water and keeping things lashed together on deck while covering

    You may be aware that "Star Trek Into Darkness" antihero Benedict Cumberbatch has a growing legion of fans. What you may not know is his devotees are distinctly fragmented between self-respecting Cumberfans and a group that has labeled themselves "Cumberb----es."

    The latter group has a relatively popular Twitter account on which they have been defending their name following recent controversy.

    Cumberbatch himself has recently piped up about the Cumber-"B"-word faction after having made light of their existence to other press outlets (including our own).

    With the enormous amount of buzz that has been bestowed upon the star villain in "Star Trek Into Darkness," along with a four more films coming out this year, Benedict Cumberbatch is truly the man of the moment.

    The 36-year-old actor first grabbed the attention of "Star Trek" reboot director J.J. Abrams as the leading man on the hit BBC show "Sherlock." And while he seems relatively fresh on the scene in the U.S., Cumberbatch has been entertaining British audiences since he was a boy in London performing Shakespeare plays in school.

  • Edgar WrightDirector Edgar Wright (Photo: Michael Buckner, Getty Images)

    In under a decade, director Edgar Wright has established himself as a major director with a trio of funny, exciting, and visually inventive movies: "Shaun of the Dead," "Hot Fuzz" and "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World." Now he's collaborating with his old pal and screenwriting partner Simon Pegg again for "The World's End," the third chapter of their "Blood and Ice Cream" trilogy.

    Also starring Nick Frost, Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine, and Eddie Marsan, "The World's End" tells the story of a group of old friends attempting to recreate an epic pub crawl from their youth, only to find an even more epic event is going on around them.

    We'll have the exclusive premiere of the new trailer for "The World's End" this coming Wednesday, and to get ready for it, we'll be taking questions from fans that Edgar Wright will answer. Leave your question in the comments, or tweet to @YahooMovies with the hashtag #TheWorldsEnd. We'll post Edgar's answers on Tuesday.

  • Spock in volcano in 'Star Trek Into Darkness'(Photo: Paramount)Burning Question: The new "Star Trek" movie has stirred up an old debate I have with my friends: are transporter beams ever going to be possible or not?
    — M. Dunne

    Let's not stop our nerd-out there. Let's go full-on dweeb for a second. And why not? "Star Trek: Into Darkness" debuted this week.

    To answer your question — and discuss other "Star Trek" technologies ranging from tricorders to photon torpedoes — we wrangled David Saltzberg, a professor of physics and astronomy at the University of California, Los Angeles — and an advisor for the sitcom "The Big Bang Theory."

    That's right. We're giving you yet another "Big Bang"-on-"Star-Trek" mashup. Bazinga me up, Scotty.

    We asked Saltzberg about your particular hangup first — transporter beams.

    "We've known since the 19th century that light has pressure," Saltzberg points out. "You can make tweezers out of light. People actually are using light to grab things."

    In other words: A transporter sometime in the future? Not a completely crazy idea.

    During a recent television press day in London for the upcoming action-packed (and then some) "Fast & Furious 6," Tyrese Gibson and Ludacris got, well, pretty ludicrous.

    Which globetrotting adventurer will whip through Round 2 of the Summer Showdown?

We've pitted 32 of the most successful and beloved summer movies against each other. And now you get to decide which is your favorite. After four rounds of voting, only one movie will be left standing. Which title will be declared the greatest summer movie of all time?

    The Bourne Identity

    It was neck-and-neck for almost the entire week, but it appears the majority ultimately prefers the exploits of an on-the-run amnesiac secret agent to the high-flying dogfighting skills of hotshot Naval pilots as "The Bourne Identity" beat "Top Gun" by the ever-so-slightest margin. Now, Jason Bourne will see if high-stakes spy games are more enticing than swashbuckling archaeology as he accepts the mission of attempting to top "Raiders of the Lost Ark."

    Back to the Future

    The tricked-out robots in disguise of "Transformers" couldn't outrun a time-traveling DeLorean as "Back to the Future" raced ahead of Michael Bay's 21st century live-action resurrection of the beloved '80s franchise. Now, it's Science vs. Magic as Marty McFly and Doc Brown prepare to take on the be-all, end-all adventure of the Boy Who Lived.

    Marvel's The Avengers

    When it comes to saving the Earth from some outer space menace, Marvel's superhero mashup team left the ragtag oil drillers of "Armageddon" in the dust -- a lot of dust, actually. Now, Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, Hawkeye, Thor and Scarlett Johansson (she just plays herself, right?) will take on a more humble kind of American hero, one who's always quick to remind us that life is like a box of chocolates.
