“Why wouldn’t Tony Stark just call The Avengers if he’s having a problem in Iron Man 3?” It’s a questions fans have been asking for months in anticipation of the first film of Marvel Phase 2, out May 3rd. We all know Tony Stark is friendly with the likes of Captain America, The Hulk, Hawkeye, Thor and Black Widow so it would make sense for him to ask for help when battling The Mandarin. So why doesn’t he?
At a recent roundtable we joined with director Shane Black and Marvel President Kevin Feige (from which we’ll have more soon), Feige explained why he doesn’t think that’s a problem, and confirmed it will be dealt with in the movie.
