It would be fair to say that Oscar nominee Don Cheadle is a relative newcomer to the world of tentpole movies but the actor takes over from Terrence Howard who was unable to make a deal for the Iron Man sequel. But it is clear from the footage we saw during Comic Con, that the […]

Scarlett Johansson was quite the alluring vision during her first appearance at Comic Con.
