Iron Man 3, starring Robert Downey Jr., Guy Pearce, Don Cheadle and Ben Kingsley, is due out in theaters on May 3rd, 2013. From Marvel Studios, directed by Shane Black, we follow the adventures of Tony Stark (Downey Jr.) after the events of New York (The Avengers).
The primary challenges that Tony faces, from what I can tell, is dealing with the Extremis technology, where he will start interfacing with his own armor. There are other issues involved, like bad guys misusing the tech and all that.
The other bad guy in the movie is The Mandarin, played by Kingsley, who is the big honcho behind “The Ten Rings.”
If you’ve been paying attention, we’ve seen the “Ten Rings” in the first two Iron Man movies.
“Ten Rings” refers to the rings that the Mandarin wears. In the comic franchise, they’re magical, mystical tech rings that give the Mandarin quite a bit of power. From what I can tell, they’re going to be more earthly or realistically based powers. But we’ll see.
News on the street is that there’s a new full-blown movie trailer (two minute, twenty-five seconds) coming out for Iron Man 3, said to be attached to Oz the Great and Powerful, starring James Franco, Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz.
Oz the Great and Powerful opens nationwide on March 8th, 2013.
There are details coming up that, if accurate, would be considered by some to be movie story spoilers. So if you like going into a movie knowing nothing and my title about spoilers didn’t warn you off, well…
According to news that Bleeding Cool discovered, details on the trailer include shots of the President declaring war on The Mandarin. Then The Mandarin will be threatening Tony still/again; Stark declaring this is getting personal between the two of them.
And there’s a few scenes of note that might be the big spoilers regarding the story or plot line:
One scene reportedly has Tony and Rhodey flying into battle, followed by a contingent of other Iron Man model armors backing them.
Another scene, a glimpse of a scene, show a suit of armor smashing through a wall and suspicions are that this is the Hulkbuster armor.
And if true, syncs up with other movie rumors about The Hulk, The Avengers 2 and/or 3, Guardians of the Galaxy and what not. The guesses are that Tony Stark and a select group of folks eject Hulk form Earth for being too dangerous, pointing him towards his fabled “Planet Hulk” story line. Avengers 3 is supposed to be when Hulk returns to affect revenge on those who fired him off to the other planet.
If these Iron Man 3 movie trailer rumors are true, they support the leaked concept art images that have been floating around of late.
