Iron Man III Movie
The Iron Man is Back!
Iron Man III is still a long way off, but the filming has started and some clues as to the new storyline have begun to come out.
Iron man was the first movie of the "Avengers" storyline, and with it's popular casting of Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, it is still the most popular of all the collected "Avengers" movies.
Avengers was a record breaking and crowd pleasing movie, any movie with just one superhero is sure to be somewhat of a let down to the fans following the blockbuster Avengers, so Marvel Comics is doing the smart thing and going back to their bread and butter... the next marvel movie will be Iron Man III.
This lens is dedicated to facts, casting information and pictures of the newest Iron man Thriller. Which is expected to be released in May of 2013, and is currently filming.
What is Iron Man 3 about?
There have been no proven facts released about Iron Man III yet. So everything here is speculation, not facts. But the speculators are often remarkably accurate.
After the spectacular and earth changing events of the Avengers you simply cannot "one up" that film without seeming ridiculous. So marvel will not try. Supposedly the new Iron man is as much like a "Bourne" espionage story as it is the "Avengers". Iron Man and tony Stark get involved with terrorists, China and a nano virus.
The storyline is supposed to rely heavily (but not directly) upon the VERY popular Extremis storyline, which has a nanoviirus as it's centerpiece. This could even lead to a new nano-suit for Stark. Making him much more than human. Even unsuited.
There will be a trio of related baddies. Dr. Aldrich Killian (Played by Guy Pearce) the Nano Tech Scientist who invents Extremis. Coldblood played by James Badge Dale (who was a cyborg in the comics) and the long awaited Iron Man arch-nemesis: the Mandarin, who is supposed to be played by Ben Kingsley. It sounds like a good collection of Villains.

Just who is Directing Iron Man 3? - Shane Black... Shane Who?
One of the thing that has made the Marvel movies so good recently is that they have attached good writer/directors to the projects.
These talented directors are not just about big explosions, although they have that, they also go for digging into the characters themselves. This make them good movies not just cheap comic book flicks.
So I was a little disheartened when I heard they had gotten rid of Jon Favereau, the director of the first two films for some guy I had never heard of.
Shane Black? Who the hell is Shane Black
So I did a quick search on imdb
He was the writer on Leathal Weapon I and II, Last Action Hero, Long Kiss Goodnight and he also wrote AND directed Kiss Kiss Bang Bang.
All movies I liked...but his directorial debut...Kiss Kiss Bang Bang... I never heard of it.
So I got the movie and watched it.
I can see why they picked him now. his movie is funny, has great dialogue and brings out the best in it's star...some guy called Robert Downey Jr. (Maybe you have heard of him) If you haven't seen it...watch it!
A comedy/ Noir detective drama. It has both a great mystery, with great writing, while being a movie that is both cool and funny. Robert Downey Jr. is great as the protaganist/narrator but Val Kilmer might steal the show as his sidekick. A wonderful movie that not enough people have seen and enjoyed.
