There’s a new trailer out for Iron Man 3, which shows much, much more footage that we’ve ever seen from the film. I’m currently trying to decide how this film is going to go once it’s finally released. I didn’t hate Iron Man 2 as much as everyone else seemed to. I actually thought they did a good job balancing the amount of villains contained within, and Sam Rockwell and Mickey Rourke were both hilarious in different ways.
How much will Jon Favreau’s absence be missed here? Shane Black directed Robert Downey Jr. in maybe his best film ever, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, so could he bring out a similar performance here? And will Ben Kingsley’s Mandarin be a GOOD villain with a weird voice (a-la-Bane and the Joker) or just a weird one? I’m leaning toward weird at the moment, but I guess I need to see more.
It is rather cool to see Stark’s army of mechs aiding him in battle, even though that’s a touch confusing as we watched them all being blown up at the beginning of the trailer. Does he have just dozens of reserves or something? How does he find the time?
I’d love to hear your thoughts and predictions below.
