Trailer Watch:IRON MAN 3
Well it looks like Marvel is set to begin “Phase 2” of its cinematic universe by releasing their trailer for Iron Man 3, and it appears they’re off to a pretty damn good start. I’m already loving the tone established in this trailer for the film and we finally get Tony Stark’s big baddie in Mandarin, played by Ben Kingsley. It was unfortunate what happened with Iron Man 2 because it was given the task of setting up a lot of the S.H.I.E.L.D. stuff for The Avengers, which made the movie very unfocused. Based off this trailer though, it looks like the focus has been squarely put back on Robert Downey Jr’s Tony Stark. Check out the trailer below:
Disney has set up Iron Man 3 for a May 5, 2013 release date. It’s directed by Shane Black and stars Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Jon Favreau, Paul Bettany, and Ben Kingsley.
Marvel and Disney have issued an official synopsis:
Marvel Studios’ Iron Man 3 pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle.
With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?
