Iron Man 3 screened for press in London last night, and while reviews remain embargoed, Twitter reactions were given the OK by the studio. And so now we’ve got the first slate of responses to Shane Black‘s film featuring Robert Downey, Jr. in his fourth turn as Marvel’s armored hero.
They’re not the most measured group of reactions, and as with any collection of first-blush responses to a big film the first Twitter posts only hint at what we might find in the movie. But if you’re looking for a general “is it good or not?” answer, you might get an idea below. Read More »

It’s no secret Iron Man 3 marks the end of Robert Downey Jr.‘s contract with Marvel. The actor has been vocal about it, the president of the studio Kevin Feige has talked about it, but everyone agreed concentrating on Iron Man 3 was the most important thing. That film is now done and hitting theaters in mere days. So talk once again turns to Downey’s future with Marvel. The actor’s charismatic turn as billionaire playboy Tony Stark is credited for igniting the massive success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and while he feels like an integral part of that universe Downey recently revealed he has an end in mind for his Marvel run.
In a new interview with GQ magazine, the actor said he’s had a ton of fun playing Iron Man and hasn’t decided anything for sure, but suggests about three more years is as far as he can go with the role, at least physically. After that, he’d like to direct and star in a Halloween-set thriller. Read the quotes below. Read More »
I’m going to give you every possible chance not to read this post. Latino Review has a report from the Paris premiere screening of Iron Man 3 and is ready to reveal the film’s post-credits scene. I’m sure about 95% of us will want to keep that a secret, even if we already think we know what it is. For that other five percent, we’re going to pass on the description below. It’s still safe to click after the jump, but there will be a nice big warning. Beware. Seriously. Read More »
By this point, anyone who wants to know the major points of Iron Man 3 probably does, as so many have been teased to audiences. Tony Stark/Iron Man stares into his future in the aftermath of the events of The Avengers and catches a glimpse of his possible end, personified by international terrorist the Mandarin.
Previous trailers have shown quite a lot, but the movie probably still has some big surprises in store. A clip aired during the MTV Movie Awards doesn’t give away too much, as it shows an extended look at a scene already teased in multiple trailers. And a new TV spot does more or less the same thing. If you’re not closing your eyes to all new images from the film before it opens in early May, check out both below. Read More »
By now, the cat is out of the bag in terms of Tony Stark’s little secret. Since The Avengers, he’s been sitting in his workshop making dozens of brand new Iron Man suits for all different kinds of occasions: heavy lifting, Hulk busting, medical emergencies, space travel. And they’ll all help him in a battle with the Mandarin at the climax of Shane Black‘s Iron Man 3.
That much we’ve seen on the Iron Man Facebook page and in numerous trailers and commercials. What we haven’t seen are these gorgeous motion graphic “Armor Reveals” by designer Kaism Lim. He’s done little video pieces, almost commercials, for several of the armors and they’re a sight to behold. Check them out below. Read More »
“There’s no politics here, it’s just good old fashioned revenge.” Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) is extremely pissed off in the first full clip from Shane Black‘s Iron Man 3. The moment happens toward the end of the first act, when one of Stark’s friends is injured at the hands of the Mandarin (Ben Kingsley). Stark decides it’s time to throw down the gauntlet. Check out the clip below. Read More »
Two summer movies packed with lots of hardware have released brand new images. While it’s good to see another machine created for Guillermo Del Toro to stand alongside other massive robots in Pacific Rim, the image from Iron Man 3 is a lot more revealing.
In fact, a few months ago, when an image of this armor made its way online, we were asked to take it down. A few days later, I asked Marvel President Kevin Feige about it and he denied it existed. And yet, here it is, the official reveal of the Mark 39, Sub-Orbital Gemini Armor. The probable uses of this suit should be considered a major spoiler, but we’ll talk about it below along with the Crimson Typhoon Jaeger from Pacific Rim. Read More »

The latest trailer for Iron Man 3 confirmed a rumor we’d been hearing for some time: That the reason Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) goes from the Mark VII in The Avengers to the Mark XLVII in Iron Man 3 is because he created 40 suits in between. We’ll probably see all (or most) of them in the film’s finale, and leading up to that, the film’s official Facebook has begun to reveal close-ups of the in-between armors.
So far, they’ve unlocked the Mark XXXIII, an “Enhanced Energy Suit” that Stark called “Silver Centurion” along with the Mark XL, a “Hyper Velocity Suit” called “Shotgun.” Check them out below. Read More »
