Iron Man 3, the Shane Black-directed sequel to last year's phenomenal Avengers movie, is now available on iTunes and comes complete with iTunes Extras. What's more, a JARVIS app is coming next week for iPhone as well. Jarvis was originally Tony Stark's - very human - butler. When Marvel made the Iron Man movie, however, they re-imagined JARVIS as an artificially intelligent computer system to run Tony's house, and eventually his armor. Think Super Siri. While an actual JARVIS-class digital assistant with holographic multi dynamic gesture support is still the realm of Sci-Fi, here's what the iPhone app will do. From Marvel:
-Like Tony Stark, users can engage JARVIS through voice-activated commands -Receive messages from JARVIS, download ringtones, post to Facebook and more -Check time, local weather as well as set alarms through the integrated Clock mode -Initiate media delivered in messages, including video, audio, image, ringtone or website -Install unique ringtones -Unlock 42 unique Iron Man suits (plus additional "Ghost" file) -When connected to the same network as the Blu-ray player, JARVIS will function as the Blu-ray remote control, or the user can simply "say what you see" and the app will do the rest.
No idea if it'll actually be any good, but for Iron Man fans, it should at least be fun. It arrives on September 10 with the Blu-ray. In the meantime, you can grab Iron Man in HD off iTunes now.
