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.

Sony technology always shows up in films produced or financed by Sony Pictures — you can bet you’ll see some VAIO gear and Sony TVs in the Bond and Spider-Man movies, for instance. Other companies have deals with Hollywood to get good placement in movies, too.
Seems like Marvel Studios has a little deal with TV maker TCL. Some of the company’s products showed up in The Avengers, and now TCL has released its own Iron Man 3 trailer. It has a bit of new footage — nothing really Earth-shaking, but it might be enough to warrant a look if you’re eager to see everything that goes online from the shellhead sequel. Read More »
Sitting down with Robert Downey Jr. is as cool as you think it would be. The guy is smart, funny and comes off as incredibly open about, well, everything. So when a bunch of journalists got a chance to chat with the actor to discuss Iron Man 3, he gave us loads of information. How is Tony feeling post Avengers? Will there be an Iron Man 4 and how is Downey feeling at the end of his Marvel contract? Does he prefer being part of an ensemble or the lead? What kind of impact has Joss Whedon had on Phase 2? How is Iron Man 3 director Shane Black versus Iron Man 1 and 2 director Jon Favreau?
Downey Jr. brings up his own expectations for Iron Man 3, Oliver Stone and much more. It’s a fun, light read with the star of one of the biggest franchises on the planet. Read it below. Read More »
UPDATE: Apparently, the quote was misinterpreted. Abrams helped on the first Iron Man, not Iron Man 3. That’s been changed below.
Is there anything J.J. Abrams isn’t doing? Star Trek? Check. Star Wars? Check. Television shows? Check. Video games? Maybe. And now, it seems he even might have had a minor influence on the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
In a new interview with Robert Downey Jr. (not ours, that’ll be up Thursday) Downey revealed that, in the same way he and director Jon Favreau talked to Shane Black for some help in the first Iron Man film, the group contacted also Abrams for some suggestions on the third act of the original Iron Man. Read the quote below. Read More »
Both Shane Black and Kevin Feige know how important Iron Man 3 is. Not only is it a sequel to two successful Iron Man films, it’s a sequel to one of the biggest movies of all time, The Avengers, and the first prequel to a slew of other films, such as The Avengers 2 and Guardians of the Galaxy. That meant lots and lots of care was taken in preparing not only the script, but the connections within the Marvel Cinematic Universe as well as balancing the action in regards to the other films.
A few months ago, we were among a group of journalists who sat down with Black and Feige to discuss all those things related to Iron Man 3, and more. Below, you can read quotes about the development, filming and context of Iron Man 3 as well as the mystery of post-credits sequences, Black Panther, Runaways, the S.H.I.E.L.D. TV show and PG-13 vs. R-ratings. Read More »
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 »
