Ashley Hamilton Could Bring Firepower to Iron Man 3

by SuperHeroHype

May 24, 2012

Ashley Hamilton is, according to Variety, up for a small villain role as the Marvel Comics character Firepower in Shane Black's Iron Man 3. Meanwhile, Jon Favreau has tweeted the below visual confirmation that, while he won't be back in the director's chair this time around, Happy Hogan will again be seen in front of the camera.

A relative unknown, Hamilton regularly appeared on the television series "Sunset Beach" and played a villainous role in 1993's Beethoven's 2nd.

Though he's been seen in various alternate iterations over the years, Firepower first appeared in "Iron Man" #230 in 1988, is an experimental suit piloted by Jack Taggert. The character recently appeared in issue #513, enlisted by the Mandarin and Zeke Stane (the son of Obadiah Stane, played by Jeff Bridges in the first film) to destroy Tony Stark.

The third installment starts filming this month in North Carolina and stars Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Ben Kingsley, Rebecca Hall and James Badge Dale. Black will direct from a script he co-wrote with Drew Pearce.

Iron Man 3 will hit theaters on May 3, 2013.

:mrgreen:

But wasn't Armor Wars sort of the underlining theme of the last movie as in everyone is using his technology? Hammer and Ivan both developed their own armors and power sources. Ivan more successful than Hammer on his own.

I think you said it best in a few previous posts, he needs to have a non armored adversary soon!

William Sadler in Iron Man 3?

by SuperHeroHype

May 25, 2012

At this point, it should be a no-brainer that Latino Review may have a spy or two on the Wilmington, North Carolina set of Shane Black's Iron Man 3, because they're now reporting that actor William Sadler has joined the cast in an undisclosed role, having spotted him during a costume fitting with Guy Pearce.

Sadler is an over-30-year veteran character actor who has appeared in many great movies including Frank Darabont's movies The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile and The Mist, as well as Die Hard 2. Recently, he's appeared on the CBS show "Hawaii Five-O" and in the HBO mini-series "The Pacific," but he's a busy actor who turns up in a wide array of projects.

We can probably make a lot of wild guesses who he might be playing--possibly someone who has a connection to Pearce's Aldrich Killian?--but it may be a smaller role than the previously announced casting of James Badge Dale and Ashley Hamilton as Coldblood-7 and Firepower or Sir Ben Kingsley in the unnamed main villain role. We can't imagine Sadler is playing a fourth baddie, but who knows?

Iron Man 3 is scheduled for May 3, 2013, and maybe we'll have a few more answers before then...

Update on the Filming of Iron Man 3 in North Carolina

by SuperHeroHype

May 29, 2012

There were a few sightings of Iron Man 3 filming in Wilmington, North Carolina today. WECT TV6 reports:

Film crews with Iron Man 3 wrapped up at the Cape Fear Club on Chestnut and Second Streets in Wilmington a little earlier than expected.

WECT was in the area around 7 a.m. Tuesday morning and spotted Robert Downey Jr. heading into work for the day.

According to security guard, filming wrapped in that location in about three hours.

A recent post on Facebook shows that Ironworks Productions also headed to Wilmington International Airport later in the day.


You can check out some photos with their report by clicking here. ComicBook.com added the following with some possible spoilers:

Iron Man 3 filmed a scene at the Cape Fear Club in downtown Wilmington, North Carolina earlier today. The film’s security had things pretty well barricaded up so it was impossible to get any photos of the filming inside. Those that did get a glimpse inside reported seeing extras dressed in military uniforms and suits. The extras in suits were described as looking like Secret Service men.

While talking to some Wilmington locals, we had one source involved with the production tell us that Mandarin was definitely the villain. He said Mandarin had a set of twins that did most of his dirty work for him. Another source who had visited EUE/Screen Gems Studios told us that the sets they were building included Chinese storefronts.

Probably, the biggest piece of information we learned, which we reported earlier is that part of the story for Iron Man 3 will be set in Miami, Florida. A source close to the production revealed that he had seen vehicles emblazoned with logos for the city of Miami and Miami Police Department being unloaded on one of the sets.


Iron Man 3, starring Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Ben Kingsley, Guy Pearce, James Badge Dale, Ashley Hamilton and Jon Favreau, is scheduled to hit theaters on May 3, 2013.

New Details Emerge on Iron Man 3 Villain

by SuperHeroHype

May 30, 2012

The folks at Latino Review have got an interesting lead on what is happening on the Iron Man 3 set and apparently not everyone is as tight lipped as the heads of Marvel Studios.

A crew member let it slip that, as predicted, Sir Ben Kingsley is indeed playing The Mandarin in the film but he will NOT be the primary antagonist. Guy Pearce's Aldrich Killian will be the main focus of evil in the film with The Mandarin being more to the side of it all. Perhaps waiting for his time to take the spotlight in Iron Man 4?

Iron Man 3 is currently filming in North Carolina, starring Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Ben Kingsley, Guy Pearce, James Badge Dale, Ashley Hamilton and Jon Favreau. The film is scheduled to hit theaters on May 3, 2013.

Iron Man 3 Confirmed to Include Iron Patriot!

by SuperHeroHype

May 30, 2012

SuperHeroHype has confirmed that Shane Black's Iron Man 3 will feature the red, white and blue Iron Patriot armor. What is uncertain, however, is exactly who will be wearing it.

The armor made its first appearance in 2009's "Dark Avengers" #1. Following the events of the "Secret Invasion" crossover, Norman Osborn was mistakenly heralded as an American hero and tasked with leading a group of government-sanctioned Avengers. Taking the technology from Stark Industries, Osborn designed his suit to represent the then-recently-deceased Captain America.

Because the character of Osborn is a Spider-Man villain and the rights rest at Sony Pictures, it's pretty much a certainty that a different character will be donning the suit in the upcoming film.

Now in production in North Carolina, Iron Man 3 stars Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Ben Kingsley, Guy Pearce, James Badge Dale, Ashley Hamilton and Jon Favreau. The film is scheduled to hit theaters on May 3, 2013.

UPDATE: We have now received the first photos of the costume on set! We can also reveal which actor is underneath the suit which, due to the potential spoiler nature of the information, is discussed at the bottom of this page.

Image Image

Spoiler: show
The armor is being worn by James Badge Dale, who plays Eric Savin in the feature film. First announced earlier this month, Savin becomes, in the comic books, the cyborg villain Coldbood. At this point it is unknown whether or not we'll see the actor in multiple costumes or if Coldblood and Iron Patriot are being merged into one character.

Hmm. Not quite sure how I feel about that piece of info. Like the costume, though.

Marvel Studios Begins Production on Iron Man 3

by SuperHeroHype

June 04, 2012

Marvel Studios announced this morning that principal photography has started for Iron Man 3 with the following press release and photo. You can click on the photo for a bigger version!

Following in the footsteps of the record-breaking Marvel Studios’ release “Marvel’s The Avengers,” production on the highly anticipated film “Iron Man 3,” directed by Shane Black, has commenced production in Wilmington, North Carolina. The production schedule will also include locations in Raleigh/Durham, North Carolina, Miami, Florida and China.

Based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series, first published in 1963, “Iron Man 3” returns Robert Downey Jr. (“Iron Man,” “Marvel’s The Avengers”) as the iconic Super Hero character Tony Stark/Iron Man along with Gwyneth Paltrow (“Iron Man,” “Iron Man 2,”) as Pepper Potts, Don Cheadle (“Iron Man 2”) as James “Rhodey” Rhodes and Jon Favreau (“Iron Man,” “Iron Man 2”) as Happy Hogan. Set for release in the U.S. on May 3, 2013, Marvel’s “Iron Man 3” marks the second feature to be fully owned, marketed and distributed by Disney, which acquired Marvel in 2009.

“Iron Man 3” continues the epic, big-screen adventures of the world’s favorite billionaire inventor/Super Hero, Tony Stark aka “Iron Man.” Marvel Studios’ President Kevin Feige is producing the film. Executive producers on the project include Jon Favreau, Louis D’Esposito, Alan Fine, Stan Lee, Charles Newirth, Victoria Alonso, Stephen Broussard and Dan Mintz.

The creative production team on the film includes two-time Oscar®-winning director of photography John Toll, ASC (“Braveheart,” “Legends of the Fall”), production designer Bill Brzeski (“The Hangover,” “Due Date”), editors Jeffrey Ford, A.C.E. (“Marvel’s The Avengers,” “Captain America: The First Avenger”) and Peter S. Elliot (“Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer”), and costume designer Louise Frogley (“Quantum of Solace,” “Contagion”).

Marvel Studios most recently produced the critically acclaimed “Marvel’s The Avengers,” which set the all-time, domestic 3-day weekend box office record at $207.4 million. The film, which is currently in release, continues to shatter box office records and is The Walt Disney Studios’ highest-grossing global and domestic release of all time and marks the studios’ fifth film to gross more than $1 billion worldwide.

In the summer of 2011, Marvel successfully launched two new franchises with “Thor,” starring Chris Hemsworth, and “Captain America: The First Avenger,” starring Chris Evans. Both films opened #1 at the box office and have grossed over $800 million worldwide combined. In 2010 “Iron Man 2,” starring Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Scarlett Johansson and Mickey Rourke, took the #1 spot in its first weekend with a domestic box office gross of $128.1 million.

In the summer of 2008, Marvel produced the summer blockbuster movies “Iron Man” and “The Incredible Hulk.” “Iron Man,” in which Robert Downey Jr. originally dons the Super Hero’s powerful armor and stars alongside co-stars Terrence Howard, Jeff Bridges and Gwyneth Paltrow, was released May 2, 2008, and was an immediate box office success. Garnering the number one position for two weeks in a row, the film brought in over $100 million in its opening weekend. On June 13, 2008, Marvel released “The Incredible Hulk,” marking its second number one opener of that summer.

Is it just me or does it look like they're taking a lot of the story from Armor Wars with a few twists...

Check out Tony Stark's New Car in Iron Man 3

by SuperHeroHype

June 05, 2012

In addition to the awesome line up of Iron Man hardware that Tony will have in his latest flick Iron Man 3, it turns out he will be getting an automobile upgrade to go along with it.

Latino Review is reporting that Tony's new car will be a 2014 Bugatti Veryron Hyper Sport, a car with a price tag just over $2 million. While the below picture isn't the exact car they'll be using for Tony, it is the same model of car.

Image

The new model will also feature an all-new body said to be inspired by the original Bugatti Veyron concept of 1999. This concept was designed by the current head of Bugatti design, Walter de Silva – former SEAT head of design. The new car will have a top speed of 434km/h… in case the first edition wasn’t fast enough with its 408km/h top speed. The engine will be based on the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport’s 8.0-litre quad-turbo W16 motor, showcasing around 895kW of power and 1500Nm of torque.

Sounds like Tony Stark's kind of car doesn't it?

A.I.M. Spotted on the Iron Man 3 Set

by SuperHeroHype

June 07, 2012

Another comic-centric element of the currently-filming Iron Man 3 has been revealed, thanks to new set photos at io9. As you can see in the photo below, the criminally scientific organization A.I.M. (Advance Idea Mechanics) has been spotted on set. What's more, the presence of a holiday decorations in the background should please Shane Black fans as it confirms that, like all of his movies, Iron Man 3 will feature, at least in part, a Christmas setting.

The site suggests that the presence of A.I.M. could point to an appearance of by the organization's creation and later leader, M.O.D.O.K. (Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing).

Starring Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Ben Kingsley, Guy Pearce, James Badge Dale, Ashley Hamilton and Jon Favreau, Iron Man 3 is scheduled to hit theaters on May 3, 2013.
