New Iron Man 3 Images Spotlight Iron Patriot, Rebecca Hall & More

Marvel has debuted four new images from director Shane Black’s Iron Man 3, including a close-up of the Iron Patriot armor and our first look at Rebecca Hall as Maya Hansen, the bio-technologist who develops Extremis.

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?

Opening May 3, 2013, the film also stars returning cast members Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle and Jon Favreau, joined by Guy Pearce, Ben Kingsley, James Badge Dale and Ashley Hamilton.

    i like the Iron Man series immensley but I have to say this movie script press release sounds eerily similar to you-know-who (and yes, i like “you-know-who” as well, alot, but I also like Iron Man as well, alot) but Marvel should really write this better:

    Warner Studios’ Dark Knight Rises pits reclusive-but-philanthropic millionaire Bruce Wayne/ Bat Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Bruce Wayne 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, Bruce 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, Bruce discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?All revisions to the announcement ARE intentional, and yes I know others have stated this simularity and I tried to ignore it, but this press release stirred up the past criticism and read too ironic……wink wink….and I thought most people woud find it funny. ;)

    how many actual bio-technologists look this good?

    Every superhero has a story where they “fall”…Tony Stark has lost his company in the 80s. He let RHODEY be IRON MAN for a while. Stark was a vagrant. A drunk. Sleeping in alleys and stuff.

    Yeah Tony lost his company a few times

    Well, Maya Hansen wasn’t exactly bad looking in comics either, although Rebeca Hall is too beautiful even for Hollywood standards. But she can pull it off, Denise Richards she ain’t.

    eh, Iron Man will do it better, and with more charm. Nolan’s films are lifeless in that regard. More than that, doesn’t every superhero have this story arrive inevitably at some point? It’s a cornerstone of the fiction. Beyond that, you just seem to be attempting to stir up more ‘this or that’ bullshit just cause there isn’t a big Batman film next year.

    DKR never felt like that type of film to me. Honestly though, DKR never felt like IT knew what it wanted to be.

    Iron Man did it first in the comics. If anything, Batman stole it from him.

    as I said Greg I like BOTH Batman & Iron man heroes and franchises and lets get real, it does read just like the Batman story line.

    and, no, I didnt post an insult although u felt the need to insult.

    I have always loved Tony Stark as much as Bruce Wayne. I couldnt be happier for Iron Man’s success. I am more than happy for a world without Batman movies.  how about you Greg? anything disturb you about DKR or any of the trilogy that the world is a better place without another sequel?
     
    …even Joss Whedon stated the Batman franchise under Nolan has been a game changer for super hero films not to mention the Bond franchise and now Iron Man and I would wager Star Trek. 
     
    The IM3 movie description could have mentioned a bit more detail to set it apart from DKR scenerio such a mention of alcoholism & personal demons weighing Tony down (different from Wayne’s demons), which is what made the classic run of Michelinie, Layton, & Romita jr so CLASSIC, which I experienced first-hand when it first came out.
     
    What I am saying is lets not lose site of what makes Iron Man NOT Batman.
     
    cheers sport ;) try not to be so serious next time.

    actually Iron Jam, Batman did it first before Iron man, Iron Man added the alcoholism. The classic run by Steve Englehart and mostly Marshall Rogers Detective Comics run in 1977, approx 2 years before the Iron Man Demon in a Bottle storyline of 1979, is the basis for most if not all of the modern “dark” & “real” super hero movies. As per Steve Englehart’s website: 

    Detective Comics(The Batman)

    469-476Batman: Dark Detective I

    469-470: Steve Englehart, Walt Simonson
    and Al Milgrom, artists. Julius Schwartz, editor.

    471-476: Steve Englehart, Marshall
    Rogers and Terry Austin, artists. Julius Schwartz, editor.

    From the moment this eight-issue run appeared, it was dubbed
    the “Definitive Batman.” It’s been reprinted in its entirety twice in English
    (and often in other languages; the example below is Finnish), and individual
    stories have appeared in four “Greatest” collections. This is not a complete
    showcase of the reprints by any means. 
    This series made The Batman someone an adult could appreciate,
    introduced his most famous woman, Silver St. Cloud, and showcased his most
    memorable encounter with the Joker in “The Laughing Fish.” At the same time, it
    reestablished the dark, pulp roots of the character; I even asked for the panel
    borders to be thicker, to get more black on the page. It defined a man, a city,
    and an ambiance.
    The first Batman
    movie (the good one) was based on these stories. When Warner Brothers was
    stuck because two screenwriters failed to adapt them adequately, they brought me
    back to write a film treatment that did. Two other writers then finished the
    screenplay. This was the second film made from my stories, following Dr Strange and preceding the NightMan television series.
    The latest Batman
    movie (The Dark Knight) was based on the follow-up to
    these stories, DARK DETECTIVE II and
    the unpublished DARK DETECTIVE
    III.
    Batman: The Animated Series and The Adventures of
    Batman & Robin, with their emphasis on “Dark Deco,” were born of this
    run. Batman: TAS adapted the Hugo Strange stories and took “The Laughing
    Fish” almost word for word.
    In short, these eight issues define the modern Batman
    franchise, and from that, the modern superhero film franchise.cheers!
