Review: IRON MAN 3

Iron Man 3 Poster 2For the superheroes of Hollywood, 2008 is a year that will always be remembered.  The summer of ’08 gave us what many people consider to be the greatest film of the comic book genre, The Dark Knight, while Iron Man gave birth to the much adored Marvel Cinematic Universe.  DC’s Caped Crusader and Marvel’s billionaire playboy propelled the genre into heights never-before-seen – and look at how far we’ve come.

IMAX Poster for IRON MAN 3 Unveiled

Iron Man 3 RDJ 4 - CopyIMAX and Disney have come together to release the latest poster for Marvel’s upcoming superhero flick, Iron Man 3.  The poster is just the latest in IMAX’s “12:01” series, wherein fans who attend the midnight premier of the film will receive a free copy of the print.  The poster, designed by artist Jock – who also designed the Mondo print for The Dark Knight Rises – is very cool and much more impressive than the underwhelming IMAX poster previously released for the film.  Unfortunately, this IM3 print will be the last installment of the IMAX “12:01” series, which is disappointing.  Hit the jump to take a look!

IRON MAN 3 Posters get the Lego Treatment – Plus New TV Spot

Iron Man 3 LegoTwo brand new (sort of) posters have been released for Marvel’s upcoming super sequel, Iron Man 3.  The two posters have been released before with real characters occupying them, but this time there’s an interesting twist.  The posters go in line with the Lego Marvel Superheroes sets that are in stores now, and this is a fun way to market both the film and the toys.  With the film’s release right around the corner, keep an eye out for more Iron Man 3 information to surface.  But if you’re like me, you’ll want to stay away from any spoilers.  Also, a new TV spot has been released focusing on The Mandarin’s Extremis soldiers.  Hit the jump to check them out!

New Clip & TV Spot from IRON MAN 3 Starring Robert Downey Jr.

Iron Man 3 RDJ 10During last night’s MTV Movie awards, fans were treated to a brand new sneak peek at director Shane Black’s Iron Man 3, and that clip has since made its way online.  Along with the new clip is a brand new TV spot for the film.  The clip featured an extended look at a scene we have seen in many of the TV spots and trailers that have already been released.  There are no real spoilers here either, as it’s just a rehash of footage that we’ve seen before – very cool, nonetheless.  Hit the jump to take a look.

First Clip from IRON MAN 3 Starring Robert Downey Jr.

Iron Man 3 RDJ 7The first clip from Shane Black’s upcoming super sequel, Iron Man 3, has been released online.  The clip comes from a scene previously included in the trailers for the film.  Tony Stark’s meetings with the press have always been interesting – but this time, it’s personal.  We’re under a month away from the film’s release, and the latest installment in the Marvel universe promises to start the summer off with a bang.  Looks like we’re in for some good, old-fashioned revenge.  Hit the jump to take a look.

IMAX Poster for IRON MAN 3 Starring Robert Downey Jr. & Ben Kingsley

Iron Man 3 RDJ 5It has been a trend over the last year or so to release a unique IMAX poster for films that are seeing an IMAX release.  IMAX has released their print for the upcoming super sequel, and it’s basically the latest Iron Man 3 poster mixed with all of the other character posters previously released.  Other films that have offered an IMAX print have made sure that the poster is unique and unlike any of the other posters for the film, but this print for IM3 is less than impressive.  I’m extremely excited for the film after the latest trailer, and we’re a little over a month away from its release.  Hit the jump to take a look.

Director Shane Black Explains how he Incorporated the “Extremis” Storyline into IRON MAN 3

Iron Man 3 RDJ 12Iron Man, Iron Man, and more Iron man.  Director Shane Black & co. have been extremely busy over the last few days with promotion on the upcoming blockbuster, Iron Man 3 – check out the new poster and theatrical trailer here.  For those of you who are unfamiliar, Iron Man 3 is based on comic book writer Warren Ellis’ “Extremis” story arc, wherein Tony Stark is given the ability to basically link his mind to his technology.  Ellis’ story arc is widely regarded as one of the best Iron Man stories, but there are many elements that present difficulty when translating the story from page to screen.  Shane Black recently sat down with SFX Magazine to explain how he and co-writer Drew Pearce made it work.  Hit the jump to take a look.

Iron ArmyThe good people over at Marvel Studios have been very busy these last few days.  With yesterday’s release of the astonishing brand new theatrical trailer, expectations for director Shane Black’s Iron Man 3 are now higher than ever.  After some low-res versions of a new poster had surfaced on the web, Marvel studios has released a high-res version of the poster which features Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) – in both the US and UK versions.  The only difference between the two is the release date, so don’t get too excited!  One thing that is exciting is that Iron Man 3 hits theaters in less than two months.  Hit the jump to take a look.

New Trailer for IRON MAN 3

Iron Man 3 RDJ 7“I’m Tony Stark.  I build neat stuff.  I got a great girl.  And occasionally, save the world.”  A brand new theatrical trailer for Marvel’s kick start to Phase Two, Iron Man 3has been released online.  I had the chance to see the trailer on the big screen last night in front of a screening of Oz, and I could only utter one word: WOW.  We’re still getting a darker tone with this trailer, much like the previous one, but director Shane Black and Kevin Feige (President of Production at Marvel Studios) has assured fans that we’ll still see the much adored witty dialogue seen in previous films.  The new trailer showcases fantastic visual effects and insane action sequences – including an Iron Army.  Hit the jump to take a look.
