Over in Las Vegas, the annual CinemaCon convention is well underway. And according to ComingSoon, Disney's presentation kicked off with a Marvel Studios feature. Apparently focused on the studios' upcoming slate, a sizzle reel was shown featuring soundbites with head honcho Kevin Feige & Iron Man 3 helmer Shane Black.
Declaring the movie a "technological thriller" and "crisis movie," Black says it's set in the world of "international war, arms and terror." And he adds that they'll "put Tony Stark through the wringer" as they explore the trials of being Tony Stark. Regarding the villain, Black said he'll be one that will "frighten in today's world."
In other Iron Man 3 news: The Hollywood Reporter suggests that actress Jessica Chastain, who is in talks for a "sexy scientist role," will play a supporting role rather than female lead. That spot belongs only to Gwyneth Paltrow's Virginia Potts, who THR's insiders say will be a beefed-up presence in the new movie.
Iron Man 3 is loosely based on the six-issue "Extremis" story arc written by Warren Ellis. Marvel Studios president of production Kevin Feige says Tony Stark will be "stripped of everything, back against a wall, & has nothing but his intelligence to get him out." Starring Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark), Gwyneth Paltrow (Virginia Potts), Don Cheadle (Col. James Rhodes), & Guy Pearce (Aldrich Killian) with Ben Kingsley in "final negotiations" for an undisclosed villain role, Shane Black directs Iron Man's third solo outing into theaters on May 3, 2013!
