‘Iron Man 3’ Trailer Promises A Grimmer, Weightier Movie

'Iron Man 3' Trailer Promises A Grimmer, Weightier Movie

It feels more like Christopher Nolan’s Iron Man 3, taking a seemingly grimmer, grounded, grown-up tone than previous Iron Man movies, which, while entertaining, at times felt cartoonish (to me anyway).

You’ll catch a quick glimpse at Don Cheadle (blink and you’ll miss him); but this isn’t his fight, so I wouldn’t expect to see a lot of him in the movie. 

In Marvel’s “Iron Man 3”, brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man played by Robert Downey Jr., is pitted against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?

Robert Downey Jr. returns of course, as well as Gwyneth Paltrow, and the aforementioned Don Cheadle.

Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Stephanie Szostak, James Badge Dale, and Ben Kingsley, round out the starring casr.

Shane Black directed the film from a screenplay by Drew Pearce and Shane Black.

Iron Man 3 will hit USA theaters May 3, 2013.

Guy Pearce and James Badge Dale. YES.


ben kingsley is half east indian, therefore he is of asian descent


Yes!! Thank God this one resembles the first movie more than the second one. I love RDJ, but the second "Iron Man" was crap, crap, crap……..I think the issue was the choice of villain and the way that the villain role was executed. One critique: I've watched the Iron Man cartoons, and isn't The Mandarin supposed to be Asian? Similar to the conversations that we have on this site every other day, there are a VERY limited number of roles for Asian Americans (as there are for African Americans). Why would Hollywood take away such a high profile role for a character who has clearly been Asian in the Iron Man history?
