Currently, there are two camps when it comes to Iron Man 3. There’s the “Okay, Disney, we get it, stop with the footage and images” camp . These people are already sold on the film, have bought their tickets (figuratively, at least) and just want to see the full movie already. Then there’s the “Gimmie, gimmie, gimme” camp. They also have their tickets but still wants to see every little hint at what Shane Black has in store come May 3. This is for the second group.
A new featurette is online that’s about the new and expanded characters featured in the film. There are the new characters played by Ben Kingsley, Rebecca Hall, Guy Pearce and the expanded ones, played by Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle and Jon Favreau. Each gets a few seconds in the sun here, much of which happens with new footage. Read More »

It’s been what, two weeks since the last Iron Man 3 poster was revealed? That kind of laziness simply won’t do. Fortunately, IMAX is here to save the day with a new poster featuring the whole gang. Tony (Robert Downey Jr.) and Pepper (Gwyneth Paltrow) clutch each other while supporting characters look on somberly, and little Iron Men fly around in the background.
All of it portends some serious drama, but most of us won’t know what exactly happens in the film for another several weeks. As part of the Marvel family, though, Joss Whedon got a little sneak peek. And according to studio head Kevin Feige, he had quite a reaction to the Iron Man 3 ending. Read about his comments and check out the new poster after the jump.

The final trailer for Iron Man 3 is here, and it raises expectations for Shane Black‘s film to dizzying heights. Here we get a good idea of Tony Stark’s mindset in a post-Avengers world, and see how the Mandarin (Ben Kingsley) will pose some crazy new problems. We also start to discover how Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.) will combat those. Mainly, his solutions involved dozens of new kinds of armor, including a Hulkbuster and Extremis.

That’s all fine and well, but let’s see some new stuff, right?
Right on cue, four brand-new photos have surfaced, including a new look at the Iron Patriot (with a possible minor spoiler), our first look at Rebecca Hall‘s character, and a shot of a really messed up mask. Check them out after the jump. Read More »
