“Kids really want to customize their play experiences. They love to mash things up and make it their own. We really wanted kids to be able to make their own armor and be able to show it off and make unique versions for their friends. As a result [of the movies], kids really know who he is and they really know at the heart of Iron Man is Tony Stark. He's this brilliant industrialist who works in his lab to create his own armor. That's a very aspirational hero behind the mask. In this case, we're trying to create a way for kids to be like Tony Stark and create their own armor.”
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?
