There’s also a holy trifecta of superhero films — The Avengers, The Amazing Spider-Man, and The Dark Knight Rises — which form a handy state-of-the-genre examination of the whole notion of comic book movies. Oh, and Battleship. READ FULL STORY

For EW, that means scouring through a sea of playthings looking for hints about several of this year’s blockbuster hits. And even though we have to¬†wait before these movies land in a theater near you, the toys inspired by the movies give us a glimpse at what we have to look forward to.
