QuickClick: Go Behind-the-Scenes of Iron Man 3
10.24.12 by Ryan
The first trailer for Iron Man 3 arrived online yesterday, and showed how Tony Stark's (Robert Downey Jr.) life was going to be turned upside down by The Mandarin (Ben Kingsley), a self-proclaimed "teacher" and not a "terrorist." On a lighter note, Entertainment Tonight has gone behind-the-scenes on the Iron Man 3 set and offered a report on the production, including an interview with Downey that involved him discussing being a father again to his eight-month-old son and the evolution of Iron Man's armor.
Loosely based on comic book writer Warren Ellis' Extremis storyline from the Iron Man comic books, Iron Man 3 was adapted by director Shane Black (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang) with screenwriter Drew Pearce. Don Cheadle and Jon Favreau return as James "Rhodey" Rhodes/War Machine and Happy Hogan, respectively, while franchise newcomers include Rebecca Hall as Dr. Maya Hansen and Ashley Hamilton and James Badge Dale co-starring as cyborgs Firepower and Coldblood, respectively.
