Phase two of The Avengers has begun! Marvel Studios is doing what seems to be a monthly update to keep fanboys excited about their next movie, Iron Man 3. I’m digging the direction where this third installment is heading. That is, with foes that are actually much more powerful and fearsome. I’m tired of Iron Man just battling dudes in iron suits. Iron Man 3 will feature The Mandarin as the main villain.
Here’s what Kevin Feige, Marvel’s President of Production, has to say about Iron Man 3:
He basically loses all of his toys and is forced to just use his mind to rebuild and to face his biggest enemy… He’s ultimately the engineering superhero. He’s so charming and so flamboyant that sometimes you forget that’s what he is: ‘Hey, kids, learn this stuff and you can maybe build an Iron Man suit.’
The goal with Iron Man 3 is to again prove that all of our single heroes are as interesting alone as they are when they’re all together in an Avengers movie.
In this movie, we are again going to see him stripped down more than we’ve ever seen him since he was in that cave, again with his back against the wall and with nothing but his wits to help him survive.
Check out the photos, poster and a teaser of the movie.
Iron Man 3 out in theaters May 3rd, 2013. Stars Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Ben Kingsley, Scarlett Johansson, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, James Badge Dale. Directed by Shane Black.
