Well, we suppose it's not as out there as Mickey Rourke playing Ivan Vanko, or a talking raccoon and superhero tree in "Guardians Of The Galaxy," but it is still an idea that is enough to give one pause. Marvel has been thinking about strapping Gwyneth Paltrow's Pepper Potts into Tony Stark's Iron Man suit.

For Demian Bichir, the deserved Oscar nomination he received for his moving turn in "A Better Life," was validation for a career that has been building steadily. This year the actor is beginning to see the payoff with more substantial roles in bigger films like Oliver Stone's "Savages" (where he was one of the highlights) and Robert Rodriguez's "Machete Kills" which is now shooting. But this week a film arrives that is likely to serve as a reminder of how he came to the attention of Hollywood in the first place.

So after "The Dark Knight Rises" throws a cape over theaters this weekend, summer is over right? Not so fast. While August overall looks pretty dismal with a remake ("Total Recall"), a sequel ("The Expendables 2") and a Meryl Streep programmer ("Hope Springs"), there is one hope for a last burst of blockbuster entertainment: "The Bourne Legacy." And it looks very promising.

The release schedule for the rest of the year is starting to shape up, but there's still a few question marks, and one of the film's we're eager to get a date on is "Welcome To The Punch." The film is the sophomore feature from writer-director Eran Creevy, who made an impressive debut with "Shifty" a few years ago, and he's stepping up in a big way for his follow-up, an ambitious crime thriller, compared to "Heat" and "The Last Boy Scout," with a top-notch cast led by James McAvoy and Mark Strong.

We can' t have been the only one that felt that Amy Adams got a little cheated at the Oscars a few years back. Melissa Leo is a wonderful actress, and was very good in "The Fighter," but she wasn't even in the Best Supporting Actress in that film, let alone among the nominees. That particular honor went to Adams, who was tremendous in David O. Russell's film, and if we'd had our way, it would have been her walking away with the statuette in February 2011, not Leo.

We can't say that we're necessarily the biggest fans of the 'supercut,' those viral videos that take a bunch of examples of a particular thing -- people cussing, or saying a particular line, or whatever -- pull them together with some natty editing, and then just hang around collecting views. Generally speaking, they feel like kind of a waste of time, and are sort of indicative of a depressing pick & mix engagement with culture. But having said that, Christian Marclay's "The Clock," which cuts together moments of instances of time in film over a 24-hour period, is one of the most amazing things we've ever seen, and that's essentially an extension of the supercut principle, so we're certainly open to it.

Toby Jones must get a little frustrated when he starts making a biopic. The chamelonic character actor got the role of a lifetime when he played Truman Capote in "Infamous" (giving a terrific performance in the process), but despite a starry cast including Sandra Bullock and Daniel Craig, had his thunder stolen when the film's release was delayed for nearly a year, allowing "Capote," starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, to sweep in with acclaim, and an Oscar victory.

Well here we are. 48 hours or so to go until "The Dark Knight Rises." In fact, it rolls out in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and elsewhere tomorrow, so it comes even sooner if you're in that part of the world. The reviews are out, and they're mostly good, although as has been discussed at length already, good isn't apparently enough for the army of infants whose mental well-being depends on the film maintaining a Rotten Tomatoes score above 90%, and who treat Marvel and DC like Sunnis and Shi'ites not realizing that normal people don't care, and are capable of enjoying films from both companies, as well as, shock horror, some that aren't even based on comic books at all.

Most of the big awards contenders set out their stalls on the release calendar long ago: even Kathryn Bigelow's "Zero Dark Thirty" had picked out its December release date months before it actually went into production. But there was one exception, and it's potentially the heaviest hitter of them all: Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln."
