Bizarre this, for it was just a few hours ago that I posted about Iron Man 3 and of how we are STILL waiting on an official synopsis. Fear not though, as Disney and Marvel revealed the official word earlier, and we have it here for you to read, but sadly it doesn’t offer up anything we didn’t already know.
The synopsis refers to Tony Stark’s enemy as a man whose reach knows no bounds, so it is best to clear this up now that the enemy is in fact The Mandarin, who will be played by Sir Ben Kingsley.
Based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series, first published in 1963, Iron Man 3 returns Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man, Marvel’s The Avengers) as the iconic Super Hero character Tony Stark/Iron Man along with Gwyneth Paltrow (Iron Man,Iron Man 2,) as Pepper Potts, Don Cheadle (Iron Man 2) as James “Rhodey” Rhodes and Jon Favreau (Iron Man,Iron Man 2) as Happy Hogan. Iron Man 3 continues the epic, big-screen adventures of the world’s favorite billionaire inventor/Super Hero, Tony Stark aka “Iron Man.” Sir Ben Kingsley will be playing the role of the villain, The Mandarin, and Guy Pearce will play the role of Aldrich Killian.
Iron Man 3 kicks off Marvel’s Phase Two on 26th April 2013.
Shane Black (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang) is directing and co-writing with Drew Pearce.
Now, before we get to the official synopsis, don’t forget about this piece of news we shared earlier today about the films trailer:
Now, what is even more exciting, apart from the poster, is a new Facebook page set up for fans to unlock the first Iron Man 3 trailer. We have to put the work in, and our aim is to re-energise Tony Stark’s Arc reactor, and once it hits 100%, the brand new trailer will be made available. All you need to do is follow the above link and ‘Like’ the page and watch the energy go up. The quicker it reaches 100%, the quicker we can unlock the trailer, and I am sure everyone is mighty excited about seeing the new Iron Man 3 trailer right?
Marvel Studios’ “Iron Man 3” pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man 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?
