It's definitely not as good as the first one but still good. It grew on me in DVD format. I think the high point is the racetrack scene.

Re: Iron Man 3 Discussion/Photos/ETC.

He just arrived in Monaco as I'm watching it now.
The intro scene with Natalie Rushman (aka ScarJo) just showed up and it got me thinking, are those modeling pics he pulls up available anywhere. I'm guessing those dozen or so pics were made just for that scene?
Also related to ScarJo, it appears those leaked cell phone nudes of her from earlier this year are indeed real. Makes me laugh at the statements I saw about the net by " 'shop experts" who clearly told us they were fakes.

Is it just me, or does she seem to have some kind of Russian accent in one place in that sequence?

I never noticed anything like that at all. It's been a while since I've watched it though.

Back on track: This is one of the first positive threads I've seen regarding IM3. I for one, really like how this guy thinks. Based on his comments, I'm intrigued and excited about the film.

Yeah, I don't get all the hate either. That movie might not have been a masterpiece, but it was still pretty good.

It was a fun night at the movies. Why does it have to be more than that.

Re: Iron Man 3 Discussion/Photos/ETC.

Want to be an extra in Iron Man 3 which starts shooting at the end of May? Get your contact information ready and get to Raleigh, NC

FIRST CASTING CALL FOR CAGED HEAT ANNOUNCED – A Raleigh Casting Call for those interested in working as extras on the feature film Caged Heat(aka Iron Man 3) will be held Saturday April 14th, 10 AM – 1 PM at Crabtree Valley Mall in Raleigh, NC. (4325 Glenwood Ave).
All interested in submitting must bring a current non returnable snapshot with them.
Casting forms wil be available on site.
A Wilmington Casting Call for those interested will take place on Saturday April 21st. More details to come.

Then there is the Ben Kingsley casting for Iron Man 3. Now they say he isn't going to be Mandarin but it wouldn't be the first bait and switch pulled in an attempt to keep the internet on it's toes.
The established thespian is in talks to join Robert Downey, Jr.'s Marvel threequel as a secondary villain who will face off against Tony Stark. Hope is that Kingsley will play The Mandarin, Iron Man's comic book archenemy. The Mandarin, as he was created in the 1960s, is a China-born Chinese-English orphan who was raised by a misanthropic aunt, trained unrelentingly in science and martial arts (by a dragon), and eventually rendered penniless due to his government's corruption. So it's no-brainer on how he became a supervillain.

THR reports that The Mandarin viewers are might see could differ somewhat from his classic comic incarnation. The six-issue "Extremis" storyline from the Iron Man comics (which inspired aspects of Downey's first Iron Man film) featured The Mandarin as a victim of his own diabolical scheme to "enhance" the human race genetically via the release of a virus called Extremis. Could Iron Man 3 audiences see The Mandarin successfully carrying out his Extremis plan?

Re: Iron Man 3 Discussion/Photos/ETC.

By coincidence I just watched IM2 earlier today at a friends house. Honestly I don't get all the hate. I thought it was quite enjoyable, exciting, and a nice follow up to the first.

Most definately looking forward to 3.

It's not as good as its predecessor. No biggie.

Re: Iron Man 3 Discussion/Photos/ETC.

One thing that i noticed is the short part where he talks about IMs non-interesting villains. It may be true concering Iron Man (i never read much IM as a kid and teenager so i'm no indepth expert) but it touches on a more imprtant thing concerning hero/villain movies.

There can't be a good movie if the villain sucks. Period.

Let's look at some examples.. John McLane vs. Jack Gruber in Die Hard vs John McLane vs that high tech kid (even forgot his name) in Die Hard 4

Ethan Hunt vs. that guy in IM2 vs Ethan Hunt and Phillip Seymour Hoffmann (no matter how good he movie was, Hoffmann is an awesome actor).

And the best.. Batman vs. Joker. Ledger made one memorable performance with a character who's perfectly written.

Any movie stands or falls with the antagonist and all to easily producers/writers/directors forget that instead focusing on the big action pieces, the cool gadgets or the tits of the month in hopes of making a good movie but everything falls flat if the hero has to fight some dud villain who we feel has no chance against the hero and is no more canon fodder than the henchmen the hero has to fight until he reaches the bland villain in the finale.

Casting Ben Kingsley is a step in the right direction.. an awesome actor and no action star which means his villain would be more of a cerebral kind of guy. I hope this choice pays off since i want the villain to be a real threat to Stark and not just an evil copy like in the first 2 movies.

Let's wait and see.

Re: Iron Man 3 Discussion/Photos/ETC.

What else do we know about Iron Man 3?

We know that ScarJo is returning as Black Widow. If Widow and SHIELD are along for the ride, I wouldn't be surprised to hear of appearances by SLJ as Fury or the far cheaper to cast Clark Gregg as Coulson down the line.

And even though Ben Kingsly is supposedly NOT playing the Mandarin, there has apparently been a call for extras of Chinese descent. The Mandarin, of course, is Chinese. It would be rather lame if , after all of the buildup in the first two movies about "Ten Rings" (admitedly more in the first), that they decided not to do the Mandarin in some form.

Re: Iron Man 3 Discussion/Photos/ETC.

I'm still not sure if I fell asleep during IM2 or not. My prevailing memory of the whole thing is sitting there waiting for something to happen, and then the credits rolled. And I honestly can't remember anything that stood out about it, or recall any specific scenes.

Maybe I should watch it again, to be sure.

ETA: And "ScarJo" sounds retarded. Like a failed idea for a Bond villain or something.

Just to be pedantic, it was "Hans".

ETA: Actually, FPAlpha is right in calling him Jack. He's from Germany, and the German dub of the film changed the German names to English ones, with Hans' name changing to Jack. So sayeth Wikipedia.

Re: Iron Man 3 Discussion/Photos/ETC.

It's not right that Germany has a shitty redubbed version of a classic movie. They get stuck with that "Jack" squat version.

Is there any version where Gruber's name actually is "Mister Falcon"?

90% of the reason people register on message boards is to be pedantic.

If you exclude the end credits, it's not in the second film at all.
