Product placement is just a reality of movie financing these days, and even Marvel Studios and their parent company Disney, aren't immune to needing the extra funds. The latest trailer for Iron Man 3 comes courtesy of China-based electronics company TCL Corporation (who also has a few products on display in The Avengers), which is why some of the footage featuring Tony Stark, aka Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr., Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow), James "Rhodey" Rhodes, aka War Machine (Don Cheadle) and the sequel's antagonist, The Mandarin (Ben Kingsley), includes television sets and cell phones.
Iron Man 3 is loosely based on comic book writer Warren Ellis' Extremis storyline from the Iron Man comic books, and adapted by director Shane Black (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang) with screenwriter Drew Pearce. The sequel will co-star Rebecca Hall as Dr. Maya Hansen with Ashley Hamilton and James Badge Dale co-starring as cyborgs Firepower and Coldblood, respectively.
