“Iron Man 3” is ready to launch! The third installment in the MARVEL series, directed by Shane Black, starring Robert Downey Jr, Gwyneth Paltrow, Ben Kingsley, Don Cheadle and Guy Pearce is set to hit theaters in the USA on May 3rd in 2D, 3D and IMAX.
“Iron Man 3” sees Pepper Potts and her billionaire boss Tony Stark finally in a serious relationship as they embark on a harrowing journey against an evil opponent, the Mandarin (played by Ben Kingsley). In a story “that’s not only the culmination of the first two films, but it’s also a follow up to ‘Marvel’s The Avengers'”, says producer Kevin Feige. It’s the darkest tale we’ve seen so far in the adventures of Tony Stark as Iron Man as he must rely on his wits and most instincts to survive in the battle against an evil that just won’t quit.
Actor Robert Downey Jr., has been on the international promotional circuit the past week with a birthday stop in Beijing where he was presented with cards and a giant Iron Man cake, to a surprise stop at an Iron Man convention in Russia and on to Europe where he greeted German fans with co-star Gwyneth Paltrow. The promotional trail continues with stops in Paris, London, Los Angeles and New York before the movie opens in the USA on May 3rd.

Follow up to Marvel’s 2008 smash hit Iron Man, the sequel also features Gwyneth Paltrow, Mickey Rourke, Scarlett Johansson , Don Cheadle and Sam Rockwell. The sequel wasn’t quite as great as the first film, feeling a bit choppy in places but there’s no denying that Robert Downey Jr put on a stellar performance with his usual sarcastic wit & charm. Mickey Rourke’s brief appearance as Whiplash was strong.
Iron Man 2 picks up six months after the end of the first movie, where Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.) has used his Iron Man armor to bring about a negotiated peace treaty between the major super powers of the world, and his immense popularity with the general public is only furthered when he fulfills his father’s dream by opening the “Stark Expo”, to showcase all the latest inventions that will benefit the world. Stark is, however, still vilified by the United States government, and Senator Stern (Gary Shandling) in particular, who demands that he hand his armor technology over for military application. Stark refuses, publicly shaming rival Justin Hammer (Sam Rockwell) in the process by highlighting his own failed attempts at recreating the technology. All is not well in Stark’s life, however: he has discovered that the palladium in the arc reactor keeping shrapnel from penetrating his heart has begun to poison his body, slowly killing him, and all attempts to find a substitute element have failed. Slowly going off the rails as a consequence of what he believes to be his impending death, he appoints his former personal assistant Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) CEO of Stark Industries, replacing her with Natalie Rushman (Scarlett Johansson).
