? The folks who thought the dude in the Iron Man 3 teaser trailer teaser with the weird haircut and his back to the camera and the air of menace was the Mandarin, go ahead and pick a prize from the bottom shelf, because EW just revealed the pic of the guy from the front and it’s the Mandarin. I had no idea what I was expecting Marvel and director Shane Black to do with the character, but it wasn’t this — but I dig it immensely. (Via ToysREvil)

? Apparently New Regency has agreed to pony up for the Assassin’s Creed movie, still set to star Michael Fassbender, and is rushing it into development. If this thing actually gets made, I wonder what that means for the videogames’ overarching story? I would imagine the movie would need more plot than what the first game covered, and yet I can’t see Ubisoft letting the movie spoil whatever they have planned for the game. Hmm. (Via Deadline)
? And here’s a new trailer for Silent Hill: Relevation, in which Jon Snow takes a wrong turn on the other side of The Wall and ends up in Silent Hill. YOU KNOW NOTHING, JON SNOW. (Via Twitch)
