Who caught the Senturion armor on the first go round? Stuck out pretty clearly IMO.

It seems like Tony will face a lot more action outside of the suit, which brings in mind the question from Rogers: "Big man in a suit of armor. Take that off, what are you?"

Then I think we reached out to J.J. Abrams at one point when we were really confused in Act III, and he helped us, too. It’s just interesting. Usually you think, in the legacy of filmmakers that come and go, there’s something so evocative about how strange it is that this particular strain of the Marvel universe was so successful, so what are the reasons for that and how do we keep that vital and just have fun?”

Yeah, that was kind of unexpected. I wonder if this means we can expect to see him do a Marvel movie too?
As for the trailer, I thought it was awesome. IMO one of the best trailers I've seen for a movie coming out this year.

Re: Iron Man 3 Discussion/Photos/ETC.

Well, there goes my enthusiasm. Thanks Abrams.

Half-joking, though given Abrams inability to mature past the "Gee whiz, MACGUFFINS!" phase of writing, I suspect he might have helped with some part of Extremis in the last act of the film.

This is not a good omen.

If rumors are true the ending will pull the same thing the Avengers and "The Phantom Menace" did



Hopefully Marvel won't pull the same anticlimactic trick out of their hat.

To be honest, that's probably closer to the mark than we'd like to think. There's no way they'd let IM turn into Iron Legion in the next Avengers.

I imagine that wouldn't be THE ending but rather part of the ending that allows your traditional one-on-one fight to happen.

Re: Iron Man 3 Discussion/Photos/ETC.

Awesome trailer.. Marvel really knows how to sell their movies.

Since i already know about the Extremis plot and the multiple armors this is the first time that i see them in action and it's brilliant. Loved the Hulkbuster style armor (if it's indeed a Hulkbuster as opposed to a generic heavy duty combat design) and all the others.. since they began releasing specialized armors in the comics i've always been a fan of them.

Downey Jr. seems to be at the top of the game again, Special Effects are state of the art (of course) but it also seems there will still be a human component to the movie.

The only thing that's bothering me a bit is The Mandarin. In this trailer he comes off as very cheesy (especially with the delivery of that one line) and i fear we may get another rather weak/cheesy villain.

I loved the more recent iteration of the Mandarin in the comics (when i happened to grab one a while ago) that had the Mandarin as more of the chinese counterpart of Stark.. business suit and all that. Hammer in Iron Man 2 could have been that but they wrote him as a buffon so there's that.

Kingsley is an amazing and capable actor so i hope they've written a good role for him.

Additionally i wonder if they will use this movie to start up the alcoholism character aspect of Stark. It seems he's really torn up mentally after the Avengers movie and he always was quite the drink guy in the movies so it would be a good opportunity to lay the groundwork of Iron Man 4 if it will happen (and i guess it will even if Downey gets sick of the role which he's not even hinted at.. he seems to enjoy Tony Stark).

The trailer does indeed feel epic. Nearly on scale with The Avengers.

With all those suits of armor and him talking of "protecting the one thing he can't live without" plus Pepper seemingly in the thick of action it would make sense that there is a Rescue armor for her.

I don't know. I know it's an iconic part of the comics, but I think it's probably TOO serious a topic for a big budget superhero movie to tackle.

Audiences still want to laugh and have fun with this character, and it'll be kind of hard to do that if he's a sad and pathetic drunk lying to everyone around him like Denzel Washington's character in Flight.
