Much like Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow‘s contract with Marvel ends with next week’s Iron Man 3. Everyone assumes Downey will be back for at least The Avengers 2, and probably Iron Man 4, but nothing is set in stone. Now Paltrow has put those assumptions up for serious debate with a quote where she says she doesn’t believe Iron Man 4 will happen. Read it below. Read More »
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 »

Much of the country is still experiencing that early-spring chill, but summer is just six weeks away. Or the Hollywood version of it is, anyway. Early May marks the start of this year’s crowded blockbuster season as Iron Man 3 lands in theaters.
Marvel’s been marketing the hell out of this movie (remember when we got a poster like every two days?) and this weekend they made a grab for the family crowd with two new efforts. The first is a new TV spot that aired during the Kids’ Choice Awards, featuring bursts of new footage, and the second is an Iron Man 3-themed monorail winding its way through Walt Disney World. Hit the jump to keep reading.

What’s going on with Tony Stark, Pepper Potts, the Iron Patriot and Extremis in Iron Man 3? Marvel and Disney recently released a new series of interviews to help promote the film and, in them, producer Kevin Feige and star Gwyneth Paltrow were more than happy to talk about specific scenes and motivations in Shane Black‘s upcoming superhero film.
Some of this is territory that was covered a few weeks back but for anyone clamoring for more info on the first film of Marvel’s Phase 2, these quotes provide several more pieces to the puzzle. 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.

We hope you aren’t feeling Iron Man 3‘ed out just yet because there’s more materials coming. In the past two weeks we’ve gotten new posters, rumors, footage reports, news breaks and, of course, that fantastic new trailer. But there are still interviews to come and even yet another trailer and poster.
Marvel premiered a brand new poster for the film, featuring the two characters at the heart of it all, Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow). They’re also joined by a few of their friends in the form of Iron Man armors.
Then, fresh off the heels of the domestic trailer, an international trailer has been released that includes snippets of footage from the China-set section of the film. Check them both out below. Read More »
Now that the final Iron Man 3 trailer is out, do you find yourself craving even more? How about some details on 15 minutes of footage taken from the film? Disney showed two complete scenes, in context, to journalists a few weeks back and we’re finally ready to tell you about it.
We were shown the entire Malibu house attack, from beginning to end, followed by its immediate effect on Tony Stark, played by Robert Downey Jr. It’s an action-packed scene characterized by scope you’ve come to expect from Marvel, with plenty of surprises. We’ll save those for a spoiler section but, after the jump, read some thoughts and watch a spoiler-free video blog. In it, Steve from Collider and I discuss how, in this brief slice of Shane Black‘s May 3rd film, we get an idea of what Phase 2 will hold, and how the writer of Lethal Weapon and The Last Boy Scout is putting his mark on the Marvel Universe.
Later this week, check back later this week for interviews with Black, Robert Downey Jr., and Marvel President Kevin Feige. Read More »
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.
Co-written and directed by Black and also starring Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Jon Favreau, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall and James Badge Dale, Iron Man 3 opens May 3. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Tony Stark always considered himself larger than life but, after the events of The Avengers, he’s obviously had to rethink that belief. Sure he’s rich, smart and smooth, but he’s no god. He’s no alien. He’s no Hulk. He’s merely a mortal man with an awesome suit. That potentially depressing realization is very much on display in this short, focused Japanese trailer for Iron Man 3. Stark’s struggle was certainly present in the domestic trailer, but it was juxtaposed with bigger action too. Here, we’re shown a man conflicted and losing his home, then the title card, complete with a few new shots.
Directed by Shane Black, Iron Man 3 stars Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Sir Ben Kingsley, Rebecca Hall, Guy Pearce and more. It opens May 3. Check out the Japanese trailer below. Read More »
Update: We’ve added an image of The Mandarin as well as the teaser poster.
Things are about to get all Iron Man 3 up in here. After Sunday’s reveal of the teaser for the teaser trailer, several sites have now posted six new official photos from the first film of Marvel’s Phase Two, directed by Shane Black and starring Robert Downey Jr., Don Cheadle, Ben Kingsley, and Gwyneth Paltrow. In them we get our first official look at the Iron Patriot armor, a tease that the Pepper Potts relationship is much more significant in this film, massive destruction and the Mark XLVII armor.
Check those out, and some more plot details courtesy of Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, after the jump.
