Iron Man 3

Recommended Posts

Though the armored hero will make his presence known on the big screen next summer as part of the superhero ensemble, The Avengers, Marvel Studios is already prepping Tony Stark's next solo adventure with Iron Man 3. While the first two Iron Man films shot primarily in Los Angeles, Latino Review reports that the third outting is eyeing production in Wilmington, North Carolina.

If all goes according to their reports, Iron Man 3 will take over 10 sound stages at the city's Screen Gems Studios with production targeted to begin next June.

Little is known about the plot of the film, but Shane Black will take the director's seat (replacing the first two films' Jon Favreau) and will lend his writing talents to the script by Drew Pearce. At this time, Robert Downey Jr. is the only confirmed cast member, though it's highly likely that Gwyneth Paltrow and Don Cheadle will be returning as well.

Marvel has an assembly line of movies being made. I wonder how far out they have planned out?

Jessica Chastain is the latest talent said to be up for a role in the soon-to-shoot Iron Man 3, Deadline reports.

The Tree of Life actress would play a scientist, said to be the intellectual equal of Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark. Although it's not confirmed, it's possible that the role is that of Dr. Maya Hansen, a character responsible for the "Extremis" nanotechnology that is said to be a key part of the sequel's focus.

The news comes just days after it was announced that Guy Pearce is up for the part of Dr. Aldrich Killian, a character from the popular Warren Ellis storyline.

Written and directed by Shane Black (and co-written by Drew Pearce), Iron Man 3 also stars Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle and Ben Kingsley and is set for release on May 3, 2013.

It's not another guy in a suit. This pleases me. I'd really love to see Zeke Stane in an Iron Man film, but I can wait.

Okay, so, right here is where they need to cut off the villains. I don't know Coldblood so well, but with what I know of the Mandarin, that could work extremely well. Just don't add a third villain; then we'll be facing some of IM2's issues all over again.

Coldblood's a hero who fights the corrupt corporation that made him. I can see that working really well. And he isn't an Iron Man character either. In fact, if memory serves, he was introduced out of Marvel continuity.

One of the quotes up there said he would be teaming with other people to fight Mandarin. Coldblood will be one of those guys. This also tells us that the girl scientist who is Tony's intellectual sequel will most likely be Gina Dyson.

Ashley Hamilton is in talks to play one of the villains in "Iron Man 3," eyeing the small part of government cyborg Firepower.

In the Marvel comicbooks, the character is the pilot of an experimental armored suit under the secret mission dubbed Project: Firepower. He eventually uses the suit to battle Iron Man.

Ashley is a personal friend of Robert Downey Jr., though the two have never worked together before. Marvel had no comment on the casting.

Thesp, the son of George Hamilton, stepson of Rod Stewart and himself a singer-songwriter, competed on the ninth season of "Dancing with the Stars" before becoming a correspondent on "Extra."

"Iron Man 3" starts production this month under the helm of Shane Black, who also co-wrote the script with Drew Pearce.

Robert Downey Jr. returns as billionaire Tony Stark, while Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Ben Kingsley, James Badge Dale and Rebecca Hall also star. Plot will borrow elements from Warren Ellis' six-issue "Iron Man: Extremis," which also influenced the first "Iron Man" installment, and focuses on the spread of a virus through nanotechnology.

Disney has skedded "Iron Man 3" for release on May 3, 2013.

Alan Fine, Stan Lee, Louis D'Esposito, Charles Newirth, Victoria Alonso, Stephen Broussard and Dan Mintz will exec produce "Iron Man 3," with Marvel Studios' Kevin Feige producing.

Is it any different that pretty much, with the exception of the first and Returns that every Superman Movie has featured Superman fighting an evil Kryptonian?

It's a continuation of Iron Man's story both in the films and the books, the fact that he has this tech and everyone else wants to steal or replicate it. Bear in mind that this is a small villain, probably one Iron Man defeats at the start of the film to show that he's still top dog with machinery. With Guy Pearce as Killian we're certain to see the big fights going in a more diverse direction, just read Extremis by Warren Ellis to get a taste.

Yeah, if they go more with the idea of Extremis as a nanotech virus, then Firepower's suit might be more along the lines of an organic-looking thing instead of another Iron Man suit.

That's kinda missing the point of what I said. Use Firepower as a competing tech guy who Stark beats, and then have the Extremis be something completely different that he's not expecting.

I don't think they are doing Extremis as a virus. This is my (probably wrong) opinion on what the third movie will be:

Tony's Iron Man tech gets stolen and different countries make their own version of the armor. One of these goes rogue, and Tony realizes he needs to upgrade his suit so that only he can use it so he makes the next version from nanobots that are coded to his DNA.

But they cast Guy Pierce as Killian, so clearly Extremis is being developed by him first. I think it's going to be a nanotech DNA resequencer just like in the original story. No idea what Ben Kingsley will be doing though.

Lot of villains isn't always a negative, to bring up Batman Begins maybe Firepower is in the Zsasz role, with Kingsley and Pierce in the Ra's/Scarecrow position. As long as the story is more focussed than Iron Man 2 it'll be fine.
