We need to remember that the loss of over 75% of silent cinema to deterioration isn’t just a matter of rhetoric or propaganda - that’s for real. We need to remember that films are being lost all the time, and that we only find out that they’re lost after the fact: They don’t explode, they just quietly deteriorate. We need to remember, as I said before, that the work is constant and not at all glamorous. For every success story like the discovery and restoration of the John Ford silent picture “Upstream,” there are thousands of other pictures that need to be located, or properly restored, or preserved, or all of the above. In short, we need to remember, period. And we need to act, without waiting for someone else to do it.

IRON MAN 3The AVENGERS

Marvel, at the NY Comic-Con over the weekend, & Kevin Feige talked Marvel franchises. Bleeding Cool quoted Feige saying Iron Man 3 would be the first film “in the 2nd phase of the Avengers initiative.” Other sequels to follow.

No doubt we’re in for a bevy of Mavel films & sequels.Captain America 2, Thor 2, and who knows… Dr. Strange? Ant-Man? Luke Cage & Iron Fist? War Machine?

IM3 = May 2013. Thor2 = Nov 2013. Cap2 is likely 2014.

Feige also apparently confirmed that Shane Black is directing the third Iron Man movie.

More from NYCC @ THR, BleedingCool & ThePlaylist.

I’m never going to get my Hawkeye movie. So much potential.
