Robert Downey Jr. has been called the King of Comic-Con and at Saturday's Iron Man 3 panel, Downey once again proved that title by rocking the audience inside of Hall H.
In true Tony Stark fashion, Downey entered Hall H from the back doors and walked through the audience with music blaring. Once on stage he asked: "How much do I love you? How much do you love me? And why aren't we watching any footage yet?" The lights dropped and the audience saw the first look at Iron Man 3.
The opening scene showed Stark in his "R&D" laboratory, testing his newest version of the Iron Man suite — it assembles onto his body piece by flying piece (as hinted in the recently released concept art.) Cut to a short comic scene between Stark and Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau) where Happy complains about being Ironman's "bodyguard." We then get a montage of all the players in Iron Man 3, including Guy Pearce who says, “Some people call me a terrorist. I consider myself a teacher. Lesson number one: there is no such thing as heroes.” Then we see Stark and Pepper attacked at Stark's Malibu home. A helicopter flies in front of it, firing missiles, destroying the home and sending into to the Pacific Ocean. Stark, in a gold and red suit, emerges from the submerged wreckage. We then see the Iron Man 3 title but before fading to black we see Sir Ben Kingsley as The Madarin. Downey says his future as Tony Stark is "uncertain" >> Posted 07.15.12 by Chris
