Tony Stark's Best One-Liners: The Iron Man Supercut
Who knew that superheroes could be really, really funny? Sure, it seems totally plausible now, in this post-Avengers world, but when Iron Man emerged in 2008-- the same summer that Batman went darker than ever in The Dark Knight-- Tony Stark and his endless arsenal of quips seemed like a revelation. By casting the quick-witted Robert Downey Jr. and giving him a lot of good lines, Marvel created the energetic superhero that we didn't really even know we needed
Iron Man Wages War On Deadly Helicopters In MTV's Exclusive Clip
While we don’t notice Pepper (Gwyneth Paltrow) as the helicopters are waging war on Iron Man’s California headquarters, we do see Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) trying to get yet another prototype armor up and running, mustering just enough power to launch a vehicle at a threatening chopper. It looks as bad ass as it sounds.
Dress In Style For Iron Man 3 With These Awesome T-Shirt Designs
Threadless, the online T-shirt website, has opened up a new collection that celebrates all things Iron Man just in time for the new movie. There are 22 designs in total, all priced at $23.50 before tax and shipping, and there are some pretty badass designs on display from some really cool artists.
Iron Man 3 Parade Of Armor Continues With The Red Snapper
The photo of the new armor was shared on Facebook, where we learn that the Mark 35 suit is actually used by Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) as a “Disaster Rescue Suit” … which probably means that he has to use it often. I mean, you saw the latest trailers, right? His entire Malibu mansion gets blasted off its California perch.
Joss Whedon's Reaction To Iron Man 3 Might Surprise You
That’s Whedon’s self-deprecating humor, putting more pressure on himself to live up to not only Iron Man 3 (and the standalone Thor and Captain America sequels) but also the explosive finale of his own record-breaking Avengers, which raised the bar on the modern superhero blockbuster.
Terrence Howard Left Iron Man 2 Because They Would Only Pay Him $1 Million
Howard claims Cheadle was always the studio's first choice, so when it came time to cast Iron Man 2, they basically offered Howard a deal he could refuse. Paid $4.5 million for the first film, his contract suggested he'd get $8 for a sequel. However, he explains, “The second time, [the studio] said, 'We think the movie will be successful with or without you. So, instead of the $8m that we said we were gonna' pay you, we're going to let you come back for a million dollars.'"
Iron Man 3 Will Leave The Door Open For More Sequels With Robert Downey Jr
Iron Man is not going to die in the next movie. Not only will he appear in Avengers 2, he’ll emerge from the final credits and give Robert Downey Jr the opportunity to trot him out once, twice or several times more. Then again, if RDJ decides he’s got more than enough money in the bank and there are better opportunities elsewhere, the series can end here and now without any awkwardness.
Iron Man Leads An Army In Latest Sequel Poster
Iron Man might transition to Iron MEN if the final poster for Shane Black’s upcoming sequel is any indication. The one-sheet has been shared on Yahoo Movies, with the promise of a final trailer dropping on Tuesday, March 5. Here’s the latest, stunning image of Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) readying for battle. And this time, he’s not so alone.
A Battle-Worn Iron Man And A Sad Pepper Potts Get Their Own Character Posters
Over the last two weeks, Iron Man fans have been treated to sporadic reveals of its cast in a series of character posters, with the sitting menace of Ben Kingsley’s Mandarin nearly outshining Don Cheadle’s pensive stare as the Iron Patriot. It was only a matter of time before we got to see Pepper Potts and the Man himself in their own posters, also staring pensively
Iron Man Laser Gauntlet Comes To Life Courtesy Of Tech-Savvy Fan
I don't mean to crush anybody's dreams, but the truth of the matter is that we as a society are still pretty far away from seeing anything quite like the armor seen in Marvel Studios' Iron Man movies. Some of the tech does exist in less evolved forms - like exoskeleton armor, for example - most of it is completely non-existent, from the suit's ability to fly to the arc reactor that powers the whole thing.
See The DIY Iron Man Arc Reactor One Man Used To Propose
Zarick explains that his girlfriend loves comics, and Iron Man in particular. Moreover, she'd taken to calling Zarick "Tony Stark" because of his love of inventing. So, when it came to his proposal, this crafty romantic gave his comic-lovin' gal his heart in the form of an arc reactor made special for the occasion, complete with a special mechanized compartment that extends the ring!
Iron Man Gets A Lesson About Beijing In New Set Photo
The snapshot was shared via THR, which can’t really confirm whether it’s part of the sequel or just a random photograph from the movie’s set. All the trade can say is that the actor is “explaining about Beijing life” to Iron Man, who recently has just “descended to Yongdingmen,” the gate at the southern edge of the Chinese city.
What Did We Learn From The Iron Man 3 Trailer?
The brand-new trailer for Iron Man 3 opens with something we've never seen before in any of the Iron Man movies: snow. Tony is lying on the ground in a forest, removing the mask of the Iron Man suit to reveal a filthy and bleeding face, with the arc reactor on his chest blinking like he's in trouble. We've seen Tony look defeated in the previous films, of course, but never quite this existential or lonely
Paul Bettany Says He's Never Seen Any Of The Iron Man Films
He may not play a role as big as Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, or Chris Hemsworth, but Paul Bettany is certainly a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In Iron Man, Iron Man 2 and The Avengers he provides the voice of Jarvis, Tony Stark's digital assistant, and while fans may love the part, apparently the actor feels zero connection to it at all- to the point where he hasn't even bothered to see the first two movies.
Iron Man 3 Trailer Description Possibly Leaked
We’re left to wonder when we’ll be able to see the trailer itself. The footage at Comic-Con looked extremely finished. They could attach that reel to ParaNorman this weekend, and fans would go nuts. But from all of this news, it’s sounding like Black is delivering on Marvel’s promise of stripping Stark of all his comforts.
