Release Date: May 3, 2013
Thoughts: After the universally affirmed gigantic success of The Avengers earlier this year, expectations are high that Iron Man 3 will continue the cash flow to Marvel Studios. I was probably the only person that preferred Iron Man 2 to its predecessor and as entertaining as Robert Downey Jr. is in the role, in general I’ve felt a bit cool toward his Tony Stark. The Avengers shifted my opinion a bit and this first trailer for Iron Man 3 is a real winner. Showcasing some excellent effects and introducing the workings of a compelling story arc, I’m quite interested to see where new director Shane Black takes this next installment as I always thought previous director Jon Favreau’s vision was a bit lugheaded. It’s going to be a boffo hit regardless…but this preview hints that something epic is in store.
