Iron Man 3 Premieres In UK
Iron Man 3 had its UK premiere at the Odeon Leicester Square in London, England on Thursday, April 18.
Robert Downey, Jr., the star of the blockbuster comic book franchise, was accompanied by his wife, Susan, and joined by actors Samantah Barks, Rebecca Hall, Don Cheadle, Ben Kingsley and Stanley Tucci. Noticeably absent was Gwyneth Paltrow, who was in New York City for the Tiffany & Co Blue Book Ball. Kimberly Wyatt (pictured above), formerly of the Pussycat Dolls, also attended the UK premiere.
This is the third installment of Iron Man, coming off the heels of two wildly successful action-packed films following the adventures of Tony Stark. In Iron Man 3, Stark will face not one, but two villains, in the form of the Mandarin (Kingsley) and Aldrich Killian (Guy Pearce).
While at the premiere, Downey was evasive when asked about what's ahead for the franchise. "Right now the future is uncertain," he told Sky News. "But I think it's very important that we end this first Marvel phase in a way that is definitive and has people asking questions."
Iron Man will hit theaters in less than a month on May 3.
