Speaking as someone who hated Iron Man 2, and has no interest whatsoever in the Avengers.

Iron Man 3 sounds like possibly one of the greatest comic book movies ever made, Guy Pearce, Ben Kingsley, Jessica Chastain and Andy f**kin Lau?! Directed by Shane "I'll never be too old for this s**t" Black....this will be something REAL special.

I don't think this has been posted:
Quote:
The lengthy Disney presentation at CinemaCon may still be going on, but it started off with the Marvel Studios presentation and President of Production Kevin Feige talking about the studio's upcoming slate. For next year's Iron Man 3, they showed a brief sizzle reel, which obviously didn't have any new footage (because they only start shooting in three weeks), but it did have a few soundbites from writer/director Shane Black talking about the direction of the movie.

In the video presentation, Black dubbed the movie a "technological thriller" and a "crisis movie" set in the world of "international war, arms and terror" saying that they will "put Tony Stark through the wringer" as they explore the trials of being Tony Stark. Although no villain has been revealed for the film, he said the villain will be one that will "frighten in today's world." Any idea who he might be referring to?

From the info, it sounds like this film should've been Iron Man 2, before he fights Aliens in the Avengers....

...but, it does sound interesting.

More supposed info from Neopunch, which sounds tangible:
Quote:
Andy Lau’s character will be an OLD FRIEND OF TONY STARK’S that represents China’s technology sector – and will use China’s armored heroes to HELP Iron Man defeat “The Mandarin” who is seen as a terrorist against both the US and China.

Definitely should've been Iron Man 2. I do wonder what becomes of RDJ after Iron Man 3. How man films did he sign up for?

He stated in an interview a few months back that after IM3, his contract with Marvel will be up and that they will "renegotiate" afterwards, which I assume means "demand much more money."

Meaning, they're going to have to pay him a bucket load for him to do Avengers 2 and 3, especially if Feige gets his wish and does Civil War for Avengers 3.

It's looking like he'll be present in some fashion based on what we've heard. I'm curious about this alleged "China's armored heroes" business though.

I'm just curious to see if any of the solo sequels after Avengers work at all. As individual stories, I'm sure they'll be fine but will the audience care after watching Earth's Mightiest Heroes take down a demigod with an alien army....

Just based on the Iron Man 3 info, it sounds exactly what I wanted out of Iron Man 2...a technological thriller...before the Marvel Universe got big with the arrival of Loki and his minions.

Although, the world doesn't stop spinning and the problems of the world don't go away after you defeat an alien enemy, so....

Would makes senses that after the invasion by Loki and his army, other nations, like Russia and China would want super powered heroes to prevent another such attack on them, nothing would make them think Shield and the Avengers would come to their rescue, which makes one wonder who would they have, a good way to introduce a Crimson Dynamo or Titanium Man.

Black's comments from Cinemacon have me even more enthusiastic for this movie, it sounds like exactly the type of route they needed to take after IM2.

You know, this is the first post that has given justification to the solo sequels after the Avengers.

Totally this. This is on point and I hope that the script has something similar to those ideas.

Still, even with that, why wouldn't Tony call on SHIELD for help, because in a way, what you described could be potentially a global problem...

...unless this film's story takes place in a confined space and time frame where calling his pals wouldn't do any good anyway. It's a problem that has to be solved right then and there.

I'm trying to get around the idea of how these characters don't call on one another for help in their respective sequels, except for Thor, considering where his sequel takes place.

This is a tricky situation for Marvel.

Iron Man is the only one you really have to come up with an excuse for. Cap (I assume) will have SHIELD as his backup and Thor will be off in another realm. Feige has already stated that they'll deal with the issue of IM having a reason that he doesn't call in help, so it sounds like they're on top of the problem.

A careful reading of the article shows that Neonpunch is *speculating* that "the Mandarin" could be a group....the only thing the quote actually confirmed is that Iron Man and Lau's "armored heroes" will fight "the Mandarin," but they didn't actually confirm whether that's "Mandarin" singular or plural.

Makes sense either way, but I'm still going under the comic-book logic that it's Mandarin, singular, the leader of the Ten Rings terrorist group.

"Armored heroes" is huge news, though. Could Lau be playing Radioactive Man? Or even changing the nationality of Crimson Dynamo and/or Titanium Man and making them Chinese armored heroes instead of Russian armored villains?

**** just got real.

They could very well pull that.

I know who he's supposed to be, I'm saying it could be something he's been hiding.
