No sense in letting the grass grow under your feet, eh? With The Avengers doing mighty business around the world, Marvel are getting stuck into the third outing for of their most bankable property - Iron Man 3 has begun shooting in Wilmington, Carolina and through a mixture of official releases and unofficial set gossip we can start to fill in the cast and have a stab at who Tony Stark is going to be doing battle with. Beware: there are potential spoilers ahoy.

Very few names in the history of cinema have the same evocative effect as that of Hammer Horror. In the 1950s, Hammer struck gold with a string of major box-office smashes in the horror genre - huge hit films such as the Quatermass Xperiment (1955), The Curse of Frankenstein (1956), Dracula (1958) and The Mummy (1959) - as the studio made stars (and millions in revenue) out of the likes of Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing and Ingrid Pitt along the way. After a prolific series of portmanteau films from the iconic horror brand in the 1950s and 60s - the Dracula and Frankenstein franchises alone spawned fourteen sequels between them - tastes began to change; both audiences and film-makers alike shyed away from the now-unfashionable Gothic horror popularised by Hammer, preferring to ride the unnerving and enigmatic wave of the 1970s, an altogether more esoteric decade for the horror genre - typified by such films as The Exorcist (1973), The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1975), and Suspiria (1977).
Yes. Another Dark Knight Rises poster. Just roll with it, OK?
