"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
Only somewhat less somber than the trailer that premiered in October, a new Japanese trailer for Iron Man 3 centers on the destruction of Tony Stark’s house, revealing more footage of Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts and of the explosive attack.
Directed by Shane Black from a script he co-wrote with Drew Pearce, Iron Man 3 stars returning cast members Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle and Jon Favreau, joined by Guy Pearce, Ben Kingsley, Rebecca Hall, James Badge Dale and Ashley Hamilton. It opens May 3, 2013.
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?
