Default Iron Man 3 (2013)

It is official, IRON MAN 3 is set for a May 3, 2013 release date. Marvel made the announcement the other day.

The other big news is that Paramount WILL NOT be releasing the film, but rather Marvel Entertainment's new owners, Walt Disney Pictures. Walt Disney Pictures will also be releasing THE AVENGERS.

However, Paramount will still release 2011's Marvel flicks THOR and CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER.

Okay, I'm kind of bummed out by this news.

Favreau did such a great job with the first 2 films. Hope they find someone good to fill his iron-plated boots.

Dark Horizons has revealed that LETHAL WEAPON scribe Shane Black is in contention (not locked) to write and direct IRON MAN 3. Apparently, he impressed the Marvel bigwigs with his ideas for the film.

Major IRON MAN 3 updates:

Shane Black, who will be directing, has written the script based on the "Extremists" Iron Man mini-series. So there will be no Mandarin, but rather a modern villain who uses nano-technology to battle Iron Man.

Ben Kingsley has been cast as the villain of the film.

Guy Pearce and Jessica Chastain are in final negotiations to play Kingsley's ally and a scientist who matches wits with Tony Stark respectively.

The big news comes today from Dark Horizons that Hong Kong actor Andy Lau may make his long-awaited Hollywood debut as a Chinese scientist who helps Tony Stark in the battle against Kingsley and Pearce.

Shooting begins next month in North Carolina, followed by shooting in Hong Kong, Shanghai, and other parts of China.

I liked Iron Man more than I expected, and the sequel wasn't bad either. Andy Lau? That's interesting. And as a fan of Shane Black I'm more excited than usual about this.

Everything sounds good, but I wish Iron Man had a better rogues gallery. He has the worst villains. It sounds like they created new ones.

Here's the latest:

Andy Lau had to step down from IRON MAN 3 with good reason: He just became a 1st-time dad and wants to spend time with his newborn daughter.

Ben Kingsley is indeed playing longtime Iron Man nemesis The Mandarin, who allies himself with Killian (Guy Pearce), a scientist who creates the Extremis virus, a nanotechnological weapon.

The plot is taken from the EXTREMIS story arc back from 2005-2006 in the comic books.

Looks interesting. Wasn't too thrilled with the first 2 films but I love the comic.

New trailer is out. Lots of nerdy speculation about Iron Patriot, suits with AI, suits exploding, Mandarin, etc. Should be good.

edit: heres the LINK

Saw it, looks nice but: the main villain is a terrorist who thinks highly of himself, the superhero is defeated (if not broken) and we see his mask ripped... I have only one question which goes as follow: does this sound FAMILIAR ?

Oh yeah, right:


Beside this, the movie seems much darker and more interesting than the first 2. How many villains is there to be BTW ? Seems like there'll be a lot of them.
