More IRON MAN 3 Stills And New Plot Details
The armor is described as the most advanced Iron Man suit yet. Find out a few new tidbits about the Mark XLVII suit and where the story picks up post-Avengers. Sounds like The Mandarin will be just as tough as his comic book counterpart.
Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) is left to survey the damage caused when the Mandarin attacks Tony in a very personal manner in Iron Man 3. Kevin Feige goes on to reiterate early statements that Tony is going to be 'stripped' down back to bare essentials like he was in the cave in the first Iron Man movie.
The connection between Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) began in the two previous Iron Man movies and grew even more in The Avengers, and the new film will be filled with trials and tribulations that will bring them closer together, Feige says. "That's one of the things we love about (Tony). It is not a new girl in every film. Pepper Potts is an incredibly important part of his life and his evolution as a hero. She plays a very big part in this film."
"The goal with Iron Man 3 is to again prove that all of our single heroes are as interesting alone as they are when they're all together in an Avengers movie", says Feige.
Seven Iron Man suits in total have been seen in two Iron Man movies and The Avengers, but the all-new one in Iron Man 3 represents the most advanced version yet - particularly in how Tony Stark suits up. In the first movie, Tony had to stand in a gantry for five to 10 minutes to get fully armored, he had a lightweight "suitcase" suit for the second film, and in The Avengers a big coffin-sized case could fly out after him in midair and encase him in his high-tech armor. "Now we see he's invented a technology that allows him to basically have the suit arrive to him anywhere at any time, piece by piece," Feige says. "And it doesn't always work at first."
Kevin Feige recently sat down with USA Today to discuss Marvel's first Phase 2 film, Iron Man 3. Feige said that the film 'picks up some months after The Avengers', and that the film will heavily focus on Tony with lead actor Robert Downey Jr. being in almost every scene. He also stated however, that Paltrow's Pepper Potts will also have an important role to play. When Tony is targeted by the Mandarin (Ben Kingsley)the resulting attack leaves Tony without a 'vast array of gadgets and weaponry'. However, from that loss comes the most advanced Iron Man suit yet.
"He basically loses all of his toys and is forced to just use his mind to rebuild and to face his biggest enemy," Feige said.
