And with its new release imminent, a couple of the special features have debuted online, with USA Today getting a deleted scene involving the Mandarin and Eric Savin, and Yahoo Movies getting a gag reel centred on Tony Stark himself, Robert Downey, Jr.
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?
Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Ben Kingsley, Jon Favreau, Ty Simpkins, James Badge Dale, Stephanie Szostak, Shaun Toub, and Wang Xueqi lead a stellar ensemble, with Paul Bettany reprising his role as the voice of JARVIS.
Shane Black (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang) took over the helm in Favreau’s place, directing from a script he co-wrote with Drew Pearce.
Iron Man 3 is set to get an early digital release in the US on September 3rd, ahead of its wide Blu-ray 3D/Blu-ray/DVD release on September 24th. And here in the UK, it will be hitting the shelves in all formats on 9th September, giving us all plenty of time to catch up on Phase Two before the release of Thor: The Dark World in late October / early November.
