Despite a couple negative opinions here and there, countless Twitter reactions to a recent press screening of Iron Man 3 indicate that Marvel Studios has done it again! While full-fledged reviews are embargoed, the social network has revealed high praise for Shane Black's direction and script, co-written by Drew Pearce, as well as Sir Ben Kingsley's performance as The Mandarin. Read on...








































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? Starring Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Stephanie Szostak, James Badge Dale with Jon Favreau and Ben Kingsley, “Iron Man 3” is directed by Shane Black from a screenplay by Drew Pearce & Shane Black and is based on Marvel’s iconic Super Hero Iron Man, who first appeared on the pages of “Tales of Suspense” (#39) in 1963 and had his solo comic book debut with “The Invincible Iron Man” (#1) in May of 1968. “Iron Man 3” is presented by Marvel Studios in association with Paramount Pictures & DMG Entertainment. Marvel Studios’ President Kevin Feige is producing & Jon Favreau, Louis D’Esposito, Stephen Broussard, Victoria Alonso, Alan Fine, Charles Newirth, Stan Lee & Dan Mintz are executive producers. The film hits May 3, 2013, and is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. Marvel Studios will also release “Thor: The Dark World ” on November 8, 2013; “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” on April 4, 2014; “Guardians of the Galaxy” on August 1, 2014; the sequel to “Marvel's The Avengers” on May 1, 2015; and “Ant-Man” on November 6, 2015!

TheManFromMars - 4/17/2013, 1:50 PM
If Charlie the Unicorn is saying then it must be fantastic!
GoILL - 4/17/2013, 1:50 PM
Was already looking forward to this so these tweets are good to see.
jerryblake - 4/17/2013, 1:50 PM
like 8/10 good, i guess
TheManFromMars - 4/17/2013, 1:51 PM
Niall Doherty's tweet was overwhelmingly positive!
MTrevinos - 4/17/2013, 1:55 PM
Makes me sad I'm going to be deployed during initial release. I won't be able to see it until June. :/
Spideyguy94 - 4/17/2013, 1:56 PM
Good news. Hopefully they stay good and I hope the other CBMs for this year are great as well. A week on Friday I'm going to see it, really excited.
PsyGuy - 4/17/2013, 1:56 PM
makes Avengers look like a "joke"?

TheGambitFreakIsBatmanOfCBM - 4/17/2013, 1:59 PM
IDGAF. I'll wait for the REAL fans so I can get a good perception of if it REALLY is good or not (No question about it though).

Can't Wait, Baby!

Oh, and Doherty? LOLZ There's always gotta be the butthurt jackass that hates all the attention a film is getting walking into the theater with a pouty face and arms folded with man tits hanging out on the side, huh?

btw a new clip from the movie has just surfaced online
Galaxy - 4/17/2013, 2:11 PM
Damn it, i still hope they tease guardians of the galaxy
FrenzyFreak - 4/17/2013, 2:12 PM

Starkasm - 4/17/2013, 2:13 PM
Wow. Hype meter just went to 11

#OhYes!
aztecRaingod - 4/17/2013, 2:17 PM
I havent read any of these tweets yet, but what can we honestly gleen from this?


Cant wait to see it myself.
thewonderer - 4/17/2013, 2:22 PM
Just like Green Lantern where the reactions were overwhelmingly positive too.
DrDoom - 4/17/2013, 2:23 PM
I doubt it makes Avengers look like a joke, but it sounds like Iron Man Triple is setting a massive bar for the rest of Phase Two.

Keep the momentum running, Marvel.
Starkasm - 4/17/2013, 2:23 PM
6 days here in Australia!
Midnight session! Can't wait.
Durf - 4/17/2013, 2:24 PM
Nice! Can't wait!

Nice.
ATrueHero1987 - 4/17/2013, 2:25 PM
Another summer with A LOT of movies to see.

the threequel curse is officially broken it sounds like!
beane2099 - 4/17/2013, 2:26 PM
Okay, 1) WTH is with the ad that pops up out of nowhere and takes up half the damn screen?? 2) I'm glad to see Marvel's sticking with their "fun-adventure" style. That's what works for them. If they try to go Dark Knight-like, I don't think it would work. The dark gritty thing seems to work really well for WB (I mean how good does that Man of Steel trailer look???). And frankly I'm glad there's a difference between the two. One, I like variety. Two, it gives the big two their own identity (which keeps things from getting stale). If WB gives GL another go, I think they need to take that approach with it. Less goofy, more gritty/serious. But Marvel, stay where you are.
H3LLBLAZER - 4/17/2013, 2:27 PM
So these are official reviews?
aztecRaingod - 4/17/2013, 2:27 PM
I must say , I like how a lot of the reviewers are saying that it is not only action packed, but Smart with a lot of Surprises.
Mendenhall12 - 4/17/2013, 2:27 PM
Had to laugh at the comment "Makes the Avengers look like a joke."
AnitaDick - 4/17/2013, 2:28 PM
Makes Avengers look like a joke? Well, we'll see about that.
MTrevinos - 4/17/2013, 2:28 PM
@fanboy03191

what are you talking about? The threequel curse has been broken. Have you seen Dark Knight Rises? Fantastic movie.
marvel72 - 4/17/2013, 2:31 PM
sounds promising,have to wait for some reviews to start coming in to get a proper picture of what to expect.

out tomorrow in new zealand,i'll have to wait 8 or 9 days.
TheAbaryMan369 - 4/17/2013, 2:31 PM
I guess the Banner cameo is true!

Avengers was THE BEST MOVIE EVER!!! I'm thinking of writing a review.

Avengers was the best movie I have seen and after seeing it I couldn't stop saying how the worst part about the movie was that it was SOOOOO good that no movie could beat it, ruining my movie experience forever! Let's hope IM3 can beat it!!!!!!!!
superotherside - 4/17/2013, 2:33 PM
Can't wait to see it already!
GuardianAngel - 4/17/2013, 2:33 PM
@fanboy03191 Technically that rule doesn't apply here since the second movie was the bad one.
ralfinader - 4/17/2013, 2:34 PM
"Just like Green Lantern where the reactions were overwhelmingly positive too."

Not really 'just like', since every trailer and bit of news regarding the actual GL movie (and not reactions)looked like shit, while IM3 has only looked damn good.

JoshWilding - 4/17/2013, 2:35 PM
My reaction from yesterday's screening has now been added (thanks MF). That's all you're getting outta me until the 24th... :)
AmazingFantasy - 4/17/2013, 2:35 PM
Keen as [frick]
GuardianAngel - 4/17/2013, 2:36 PM
@MTrevinos TDKR wasn't necessarily bad, but it was sure a disappointment compared to how great the 1st two films were. I'd say it's more Return of the Jedi disappointing than Spider-Man 3.
TheCaptain - 4/17/2013, 2:38 PM
I doubt it makes Avengers look like a joke, but from these tweets (minus butthurt jackass Niall Doherty), IM3 is gonna be the tits.
SpectacularJoShFest - 4/17/2013, 2:38 PM
Good! Can't wait for this movie!!!
marvel72 - 4/17/2013, 2:38 PM
@ JoshWilding

i'm intrigued as of what the twist could be.
jerryblake - 4/17/2013, 2:41 PM
@ralfinader

not really. The GL Wonder Con footage was superb. If the movie was more in a vein of the footage we wouldn't be hatin right now.
