Axel-In-Charge: Navigating the "Civil War II" Landscape, Bringing DMC to Marvel
The release of Iron Man 3 is a little more that a month away, but two new teasers have been released that up the ante on Marvel’s next big film. In case you had any doubts, these videos promise that Iron Man 3 is going to be action-packed and have plenty of surprises.
The Kid’s Choice Awards trailer plays up the “heavy metal” aspect of the movie as Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) flaunts what a great superhero he is, showing off his Iron Legion and stating he is just here to fight the “bad guys.” That teaser doesn’t just get kids on board with the movie — it gets us on board as well.
Meanwhile, the international teaser packs some new footage. This video highlights Tony’s fight against the Mandarin, and has a big reveal at the end that might be considered a spoiler for some. You’ve been warned!
Directed by Shane Black, Iron Man 3 stars Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Jon Favreau, Ben Kingsley, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, James Badge Dale and Ashley Hamilton. The film opens May 3. Here’s the official synopsis:
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?
