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.

oh boy. The best part of the movie
JediSuperGuy83 - 1/25/2014, 4:33 PM
Iron Man 3 was The Worst Iron Man is still the best Iron Man film to date I wish Favreau came back to direct it here some things that needed to be changed

1.Not set in Christmas
2.Shane Black
3.Kingsley as The MANDARIN or Even Extremis Mandarin
McNyagano - 1/25/2014, 4:36 PM
That was a great sequence though. The Mandarin was right, you'll never see him coming and Tony sure didn't.
MrCBM56 - 1/25/2014, 4:37 PM
Loved this scene.
MrCBM56 - 1/25/2014, 4:39 PM
I understand Shane Black didn't want to use the Mandarin because he's a "A Racist Caricature", but he wasn't in the film. As a matter of fact, he was working up until the the twist.
JoJo1982 - 1/25/2014, 4:41 PM
What if Robert Downey jr signed up for more appearances in Phase 4

That would b pretty cool
JediSuperGuy83 - 1/25/2014, 4:42 PM
"A Racist Caricature"- So German is WRONG so Captain America:TFA was Politcially Incorrect Give me a Break @Mr.CBM56
JoJo1982 - 1/25/2014, 4:43 PM
I think All Hail the King is going to answer some questions about the Mandarin thing
JediSuperGuy83 - 1/25/2014, 4:44 PM
@JoJo1982 The Damage has been Done it cant be repaired
JoJo1982 - 1/25/2014, 4:46 PM

Well if u say it like that

The Wolverine is racist for having a white man going up against the Japanese, lol

Jack Nicholson should played Silver Samurai

NovaCorpsFan - 1/25/2014, 4:47 PM

Has anyone ever tried to teach you grammar?
MrCBM56 - 1/25/2014, 4:48 PM

Those were actually Shane Black words, calm down.

JediSuperGuy83 - 1/25/2014, 4:50 PM
I like Thor:The Dark World better it made in my top 10 @ # 5 than Iron Man 3 heres what made it better

- Straightfoward Villian(Malekith & Kurse)

-Better Story

-Better Protagonist(Thor)

-Not Set During any Holidays

-Was International and In London

-Hotter leading Lady Natalie Portman

SauronsBANE - 1/25/2014, 4:51 PM
I'm sorry, are we complaining about the TIME OF YEAR that Iron Man 3 was set in?? Is that how far our nitpicking has gone? Wow.
SuperCat - 1/25/2014, 4:51 PM
LOL @ Nova

JordanKing - 1/25/2014, 4:53 PM
@SuperGuy83 WWII is a part of history. It happened. "The Mandarin" did not.
JordanKing - 1/25/2014, 4:53 PM
Can't believe that needed explaining.
JediSuperGuy83 - 1/25/2014, 4:53 PM
@Saurons Its Pretty Bad when A film is set during the holidays it detracts also Winter would've Been More a Viable Option At least I can watch anytime without the holiday Mumbo Jumbo
JoJo1982 - 1/25/2014, 4:55 PM
I honestly thought IM3 had the best plot out all the CBM last year

I give im3 props for giving a great story then the other movies but overall it was just a decent action flick to me
JediSuperGuy83 - 1/25/2014, 4:55 PM
@JordanKing I know my history But Kingsley is Indian not Chinese he would been a kick ass Mandarin if not for Feige and Black
JediSuperGuy83 - 1/25/2014, 4:56 PM
@JoJo I disagree it was The Worst Out Of The MCCU
Pasto - 1/25/2014, 4:56 PM

JediSuperGuy83 - 1/25/2014, 4:57 PM
The Wolverine was Better Than Iron Man 3
SauronsBANE - 1/25/2014, 4:58 PM
What? I cannot fathom how the fact that the film took place during the holidays somehow detracts from the rest of the story. Did the mere presence of Christmas decorations ruin the plot, the tone, the characters, the humor, and everything else for you? That literally makes no sense. Shane Black's signature is directing movies that take place during Christmas. He obviously loves the tone and atmosphere that creates, so that's why he does so. Obviously it works for him. Who are you to say otherwise?
MrCBM56 - 1/25/2014, 4:59 PM

Can't believe I listened to more than half of that playlist.
SauronsBANE - 1/25/2014, 5:00 PM
The racism with the traditional Mandarin character has nothing to do with the fact that Sir Ben Kingsley happens to be Indian rather than Chinese. It's got nothing to do with the actor, it has to do with the character.
JediSuperGuy83 - 1/25/2014, 5:01 PM
@Saurons NONE I REPEAT NONE of The Iron Man Comics also If They Had Gone With The Dark Knight Rises Tone it would been fine and Not created that twist its pretty sad i can only watch IM3 once a year also Thats Like Putting Christmas decor in THE ESB
NovaCorpsFan - 1/25/2014, 5:01 PM

Does that ever end?
JoJo1982 - 1/25/2014, 5:02 PM

It's not the worse to me, but just my least fave out of MCU
I honestly put Iron Man 2 above it, just bc my jaw drop to the ground when I saw war machine and iron man kicking hammer drone's ass

Plus I'm a fan of Mickey Rourke
MrCBM56 - 1/25/2014, 5:02 PM

JediSuperGuy83 - 1/25/2014, 5:02 PM
Would've Like 616 Mandarin over MCCU "Mandarin" in IM3 what we were promised in The Trailers
SauronsBANE - 1/25/2014, 5:04 PM
"NONE I REPEAT NONE of The Iron Man Comics also If They Had Gone With The Dark Knight Rises Tone it would been fine and Not created that twist its pretty sad i can only watch IM3 once a year also Thats Like Putting Christmas decor in THE ESB"

None of this is a complete sentence. I have no idea what you're trying to say. If English isn't your 1st language, then I absolutely don't hold that against you and apologize for even bringing this up. But if it
MarkV - 1/25/2014, 5:04 PM
Dude had like 100 self articulating armors in the basement ready to go.

This film makes NO sense.

What a sad, missed opportunity.

What a huge let down after Avengers.
NovaCorpsFan - 1/25/2014, 5:04 PM
Did anybody really get a Chrsitmas-y feel from Iron Man 3? None of it felt like Christmas.
JoJo1982 - 1/25/2014, 5:05 PM
It's not a bad movie

If u watch Im3, you can give a few hints that would lead into avengers age of Ultron

Like Happy talking to Pepper about replacing security with robots.... Hmmm
A few other things too

NovaCorpsFan - 1/25/2014, 5:06 PM

I have literally never seen you say ANYTHING positive about ANYTHING ever on this site. So I have a question for you, you negatively charged turd hugging stream of piss.

Are you capable of showing the slightest bit of compassion towards anything, or are you always an insufferable little know it all, with all the charm and social grace of a pubic louse?
JediSuperGuy83 - 1/25/2014, 5:06 PM
Thor:The Dark World is Watchable and Cooler At least I can Watch it 24/7 if i wanted to
MrCBM56 - 1/25/2014, 5:07 PM

Never noticed that. What other things?
