New images from Shane Black’s IRON MAN 3 featuring Robert Downey Jr. & Gwyneth Paltrow have been released. Marvel president Kevin Feige remarked to USA Today (who provides these incredibly lovely low-res images) that “the goal with Iron Man 3 is to again prove that all of our single heroes are as interesting alone as they are when they’re all together in an Avengers movie.”
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?
First look at Ben Kingsley as The Mandarin via EW:
Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) is left to survey the damage caused when the Mandarin attacks Tony in a very personal manner in Iron Man 3. “While he is a charming guy, it is often hard to root for a genius billionaire playboy philanthropist because they seem to have it all,” Feige says. “In this movie, we are again going to see him stripped down more than we’ve ever seen him since he was in that cave, again with his back against the wall and with nothing but his wits to help him survive.”
“Now we see he’s invented a technology that allows him to basically have the suit arrive to him anywhere at any time, piece by piece,” Feige says. “And it doesn’t always work at first.”
“That’s one of the things we love about (Tony). It is not a new girl in every film. Pepper Potts is an incredibly important part of his life and his evolution as a hero. She plays a very big part in this film.”
