Shane Black’s first foray into the Marvel Cinematic Universe is our opening to Phase Two, and with Robert Downey, Jr. front and centre, we couldn’t be more excited.
We got an awesome new poster ahead of the big game, and this full 90-second preview, courtesy of Facebook, makes things all the better.
“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?”
Starring alongside Downey, Jr. for round three is another awesome cast, headed up by Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Stephanie Szostak, James Badge Dale, Jon Favreau, Wang Xueqi, and Ben Kingsley, with Paul Bettany reprising his role as the voice of JARVIS.
Black (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang) is taking over the helm from Jon Favreau, directing from a script he co-wrote with Drew Pearce (the upcoming Sherlock Holmes 3, Godzilla).
Iron Man 3 will be released in 3D and IMAX 3D on 26th April here in the UK. Its US release date is set for 3rd May, and you’ll want to make sure you commit the relevant release date to memory. This is going to be incredible. For now, here’s the full extended Super Bowl TV spot. Enjoy.
