Dork Shelf chats with Iron Man 3 actor Don Cheadle to talk about playing Tony Stark's best friend James "Rhodey" Rhodes, working with Shane Black and Robert Downey Jr., his own experiences with comics, and much more.

It's the antithesis of shallow blockbuster filmmaking that still delivers the goods and knows how to be a fun and enjoyably twisty ride thanks to Robert Downey Jr.'s continued excellence as Tony Stark and some fresh new energy courtesy of writer and director Shane Black.

We had a chance to see the first two episodes of the new Marvel animated series Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes. The show has some big shoes to fill, but Marvel has learned from their missteps and enlisted some serious talents to help mold this show into something that can be held up with the other fantastic comic book-based animation. Marvel Studios has totally nailed it.
With the release of the Iron Man 2 DVD and Blu-Ray today, now seems like a good a time to post our interview with conceptual designer and comic book artist Adi Granov from the 2010 Wizard World Toronto Comic Con. Granov is best known for his distinctive work on Marvel's in Iron Man: Extremis miniseries, as well as his incredible cover art for a variety of Marvel titles.
