There are two types of people in the world: people that are excited about Marvel’s phase 2 of superhero films and people who are not so much alive as they are very much dead. Luckily, I fall into the first category of people as I am simply ecstatic for the next series of movies, starting with Iron Man 3. Details regarding the film have been really scant, but for a few sneak peaks at Tony Stark’s very golden new suit. Well, finally, an official synopsis has been revealed, with a trailer to follow next week!
The synopsis from Comingsoon reads:
Marvel Studios’ Iron Man 3 pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?
Seeing as Iron Man 2 was net received as well as the first film, this seems like a more back-to-basics plan for Marvel, and confirms early reports that Stark will have to face similar challenges as he did in the cave of the first film… he will have to make use of intelligence to solve which ever sticky situation he finds himself in, and I’m all for it!
Since Marvel has the luxury of knowing we will get all the suit action we want in the Avengers films, they should feel pretty comfortable about throwing Stark into the deep end without his suit for a while, and maybe just give us another look into the mind of our favourite billionaire philanthropist playboy.
Still no word on who the antagonist will be though, but I can’t wait to find out!
