Weta Digital worked on over 500 shots on Marvel's Iron Man 3, creating the epic final battle where 30 Iron Man suits take on an army of extremis mercenaries.

The sequence features a full digital environment that goes through some epic destruction as the two sides clash in a tightly choreographed battle sequence. The final showdown between Tony Stark and the Mandarin is also not to be missed.


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?



Iron Man 3 was directed by Shane Black, from a screenplay written by Drew Pearce. The film opened in theaters May 3, 2013. It stars: Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark), Gwyneth Paltrow (Virginia Potts), Don Cheadle (Col. James Rhodes), and Ben Kingsley as The Mandarin.

I wish there was more stuff like this on the BluRay. A little underwhelmed with the bonus features

So basically, they did the only real action in the movie.

Surprised they didn't use ILM on this one, but I do love Weta's work, especially on Planet of the Apes.

EPIC movie and one of the best climatic battles I've seen. Weta did a great job but some shots of the extremis soldiers fighting the Iron Legion looked like a video game.
Why aren't these on the bluray?
The film has really grown on me. It's my second favorite Marvel Studios film, behind The Incredible Hulk. I still don't like that Pepper beat Killia, the romote control bs, and some of the kid scenes.

I don't if any of you guys are from Dallas, but at the Texas State Fair, WB had all the Man of Steel suits on display. Man, that was fricking awesome.
The last fight scene in Ironman 3 is epic, and way better than the Avengers battle scene.

IMO the third act of MOS had way too much action.. I mean visually it looked great but it just got boring after a while.

"IMO the third act of MOS had way too much action" Right Transformers:Dark of The Moon had way to much action
