PHOTOS: Summer TV Preview The Hollywood Reporter: What have you learned from your previous hosting gigs at the Emmys and Do Something Awards that you’ve brought to this?

As noted in a recent New York Times article by Brooks Barnes, in just the two-month period from May 1 to July 4, studios will have put out 13 movies with budgets in excess of $100 million each a 44 percent increase over the same period in 2012. Even April a month normally considered a cinematic dumping ground saw the release of Joseph Kosinskis $120 million sci-fi actioner Oblivion, starring perennial box-office draw Tom Cruise (although it was the Jackie Robinson biopic 42 that scored the highest April numbers).

Robert Downey Jr.s third (and probably final) solo outing as the Armored Avenger managed to survive mixed reviews, the inevitable backlash of comic book purists and the threat of franchise fatigue to become the second highest-grossing superhero film of all time, rocketing past The Dark Knight Rises to the tune of $1.2 billion. That figure was apparently enough to convince even the famously tight-fisted Marvel studio heads to re-sign Downey Jr.
