IRON MAN 3 Image Shows Off Tony Stark’s New Audi
As featured in the recent Iron Man 3 trailer, a publicity still from the Marvel film has been released and showcases Audi reuniting with Marvel for marketing… and story purposes? Check out details!
After parting ways for The Avengers last year, the hotly-anticipated Iron Man 3 movie will not only
temporarily reunite Robert Downey Jr’s Tony Stark with his Malibu mansion, but also his original trademark vehicle: the Audi. As seen in the newest trailer, Stark will get behind the wheel of a 2012 Audi e-tron, the German automaker’s first electric car, but not just for product placement. Variety reports that “Marvel was looking for a car partner that could provide a hybrid or electric-powered convertible for the movie since the drop top plays a significant role in the script.” How major that role is, is unknown, but the latest Iron Man 3 still showcases the marketing deal.

Along with everything else at Tony Stark’s seaside Malibu mansion, The Mandarin’s attack will see Stark’s new electric-powered Audi tumbling into the Pacific ocean, as framed in the latest trailer. Therefore, its supposed significant role should play out early on in the film. However, there was a description for a tie-in Hasbro Battle Vehicle that suggested “Tony Stark’s stylish ride launches your Iron Assembler figure out of the front, mimicking a scene from the movie.” What do you think?
