In the latest Entertainment Weekly Magazine, small tidbits of Iron Man 3 are revealed along with the previously released concept art of Stark with armor on only his arm and leg. What could this mean? EW seems to think it’s the Extremis virus taking effect.
“What’s happening here? The context isn’t immediately clear (and Marvel isn’t talking), but the image matches the way Stark’s armor attaches to him in the 2005-06 comic book series Iron Man: Extremis. The title refers to a nanotech serum that allows humans to bond with metal, becoming biological combat machines.”
Entertainment Weekly was also able to catch up with Robert Downey Jr to get a quick quote on what we can expect from the genius, billionaire, playboy and philanthropist saying that he “radically wants to challenge Stark’s identity, rather than just have him battle another bad guy”:
“These things tend to, in Act 3, really become about the same old things. So let’s really flip that. I feel like I don’t know where you go after Iron Man 3. Leave it all on the field, you know?”
Just like us, it seems like RDJ is upset with Stark always fighting armored villains at the end of the film. With things heating up in Iron Man 3 marketing and a panel coming at San Diego Comic Con, what are you most excited to hear about?
Marvel Studios announced today that they will be at next month’s San Diego Comic-Con to give fans their first look at “Iron Man 3.” Marvel Studio head Kevin Feige will appear at Marvel’s panel Saturday, July 14th, from 6 to 7PM. Feige will also be joined by unnamed “special guests.”
Set to take place after the events of “The Avengers,” Iron Man 3 is said to be a more personal story for Tony Stark, who will once again played by Robert Downey Jr. No official plot synopsis has been released yet, but reports claim Iron Man’s arch nemesis from the Marvel comics, the Mandarin, will be played by Ben Kingsley. However, Latino Review reports that the Mandarin will be more of a “veiled threat as a silent partner,” to Aldrick Killian, played by Guy Pearce.
The “Extremis” storyline from the comics was reportedly a major influence on the movie’s story. Latino Review says that Extremis will be used by Killian to create an army of super-powered individuals, which is where villains Coldblood and Firepower, played by Ashley Hamilton, may come in.
Gwyneth Paltrow and Don Cheadle are both confirmed to return to play as Pepper Potts, and James “Rhodey” Rhodes respectively. Despite Shane Black taking the helm as director, Jon Favreau will still return as Tony’s chauffeur/assistant, Happy Hogan. Hong Kong actor Andy Lau recently left the film to spend time with his family.
Currently in production, “Iron Man 3″ is set for release on May 3rd, 2013.
Each year, the massive San Diego Comic-Con (taking place this year from July 11-15) draws some of Hollywood’s biggest stars. We picked the 20 hottest names promoting upcoming films and TV shows at the 2012 event. Many of the celeb appearances are confirmed, while others will be determined later (some stars may even make a “surprise” visit). Meanwhile, some of the names that are expected to be at the Con didn’t quite make our list this year; Taylor Lautner’s box office flop “Abduction” damaged his non-”Twilight” value, while Colin Farrell really needs a hit starring vehicle — maybe “Total Recall” — to put him back on track. And when it comes to the ladies of “Total Recall,” Beckinsale beats Biel everytime.
Which stars are you most excited to see at Comic-Con? Who did we miss? Check out the photos below and sound off in the comments section.
