Marvel's Kevin Feige Talks Iron Man 3

by SuperHeroHype

January 21, 2013

Iron Man 3 will kick off the summer movie season and it's shaping up to be the most unique adventures that Tony Stark has had.

"Robert Downey Jr. gave his all to this performance," said Marvel Studios producer extraordinaire Kevin Feige in an interview with MTV. "He left no stone unturned."

He added: "So much of the journey of 'Iron Man 3' is informed by Tony's experiences in 'The Avengers. It's almost like post-traumatic stress: he really has retreated after the events of 'The Avengers' into his workshop, where he's building advanced versions of his suits. He has [designed] a version of the suit that can latch onto him in individual pieces ... anytime, anywhere. As he starts to realize, it's basically because he doesn't want to be out of the suit: he's seen a lot of things in 'Avengers' and has encountered a lot of powerful people, much more powerful than he is.

"It brings us back to the Tony we met in the first part of 'Iron Man' where he's removed from that convoy and brought to the cave with nothing but a box of scraps. It's fun for all of us to watch Tony try to figure out how to get out of that scenario. Much of the movie is Tony in the middle of the country without his tools and a fairly broken suit to help him. But that's his superpower: he wasn't born on Asgard, he wasn't hit by gamma rays, and he doesn't have the super soldier serum. His power is his brain. It's fun to put Tony Stark in a corner with nothing and see how he can get out of it."

The film also makes the feature film debut of one of Iron Man's most notorious enemies from the comic books, The Mandarin. Long rumored to be in the films after a brief reference in the first film, the character will be coming to life this summer with Ben Kingsley in the role.

"We felt there was leeway to explore the Mandarin in a way that hasn't been explored before. We found we couldn't point to any sort of definitive Mandarin story in the comics — but if you print this, I'm sure a million fans will point to a specific story — so as we've done with many of the films, we did an amalgamation. The Mandarin is relentless: he's a non-stop threat, and you've seen that in the first teaser trailer when Tony Stark's house tumbles into the sea. He doesn't mess around, this guy."

With the story of the film being influenced by The Avengers and a whole slew of new Marvel characters appearing, there is plenty here to make it different, but Feige seems to think where director Shane Black has taken the film is the most outstanding facet.

"No one has been shy — myself, Robert and [original 'Iron Man' director Jon] Favreau — about how Shane worked in the shadows of the first 'Iron Man' film, helping with certain scenes and helping with tonal things,This film, it's much less the culmination of the previous 'Iron Man' movies in part three: this is 'Iron Man: A Shane Black Film.' That, to me, is by far the most unique thing about this movie."

Many have speculated that the Marvel films will eventually wither away, that audiences will get tired of seeing these kinds of movies and will eventually stop going (though the billions of dollars made by Marvel's The Avengers and Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises seems to point in the other direction). This doesn't seem to have affected their decision making about future films, as Feige thinks Tony Stark can stand a few more films.

"Characters like James Bond and Batman, whose stories go on and on and on — I think Tony is one of those characters. Where we go directly after 'Iron Man 3' ... I'm not looking too far ahead. I'm looking to finish 'Iron Man 3,' getting into 'Avengers 2,' and then seeing where we go from there. But I do think we have more Tony Stark tales to tell, and we'll take it one movie — or maybe two movies — at a time."

Iron Man 3 opens in 3D and 2D theaters on May 3, 2013. The action adventure stars Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Stephanie Szostak, James Badge Dale, Jon Favreau and Ben Kingsley.

"We look forward to moviegoers experiencing this highly-anticipated next installment of Tony Stark's latest adventures in IMAX 3D."

"We're thrilled to be able to offer that to fans in the larger-than-life action of IMAX 3D."

The IMAX 3D release of Iron Man 3 will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images, coupled with IMAX's customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio, create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.

Jon Favreau on Not Directing Iron Man 3

by SuperHeroHype

January 28, 2013

Jon Favreau opened up the Marvel Cinematic Universe with 2008's Iron Man. He then offered us another trip with Old Shell Head in Iron Man 2, but for the third film in the franchise, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang director Shane Black steps behind the camera. Favreau spoke with Access Hollywood about how different it is to be on the set but not as the director.

"When you first go walk onto the set it is strange to see all my friends and cast members there but Shane (Black) is somebody who i've known for a while and Robert knows for a very long time. I've done two back to back and it's weird being on that set as an actor and a producer, and it's a little surreal it feels like a dream. It feels like when you go back to your old school in your dream. But I have to say I've had so much fun and Shane is doing such a fantastic job. I'm sort of getting used to the idea having watched Robert on screen as Iron Man in The Avengers and having just been an executive producer on that and not directing that, I've become comfortable with it."

"I think that's part of what it is to be a filmmaker now, whether you're dealing with pilots or franchises. The biggest contribution is when you come in, you discover that cast, you find the right pitch for the show, and then you create a world and hopefully other creative people can come in and build upon that and that's been very rewarding. So it's more like being a proud grandfather, where you get to play with the baby but you don't have to change the diapers."

Iron Man 3 opens in 3D and 2D theaters on May 3, 2013. The action adventure stars Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Stephanie Szostak, James Badge Dale, Jon Favreau and Ben Kingsley.

by SuperHeroHype

April 22, 2013

If you've gone to a midnight IMAX screening of an event film in the past few years,you've probably been given an exclusive poster for your attendance. Today, IMAX revealed what will be the last in their midnight poster series and the tradition will come to an end with none other than Iron Man 3. Created by renowned comic book artist Jock, the poster will be available exclusively to attendees of 12:01 IMAX shows of Iron Man 3 on May 3. You can see if your local theater is participating by clicking here.

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?

93% percent on Rotten Tomatoes this far, with almost 50 reviews in.

Many of the critics are saying it's much more like the 1st one rather than the second, which makes me VERY happy.

Only a week to go! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
