Walt Disney Pictures releases the third IRON MAN movie during the lucrative month of May (”summer” blockbusters don’t wait for summer anymore). Robert Downey Jr. returns as Tony Stark, the man in the iron suit, along iwth Dwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts, Don Cheadle as James Rhodes/War Machine, and Jon Favreau as Happy Hogan. However, Favreau (who helmed the first two IRON MAN films) is out of the director’s chair, replaced by Shane Black (LETHAL WEAPON), who also had a hand in the script, along with Drew Pearce, based on the Marvel Comics character. This time, the story pits Stark against a new villain, The Mandarin, played by Ben Kingsley. Also in the cast are Guy Pearce as Aldrich Killian and William Sadler as Sal Kennedy. And we’re sure Stan Lee will show up in there somewhere.
U.S. Theatrical Release: May 3, 2013
