SPOILERS: 'Iron Man 3' Has More Combat And More Don Cheadle
Iron Man 3’s Robert Downey Jr. revealed a few spoilers for the film ahead of its May 3 release.
The third installment of the Iron Man series will be helmed by Downey’s Kiss Kiss Bang Bang director, Shane Black – a hiring encouraged by the Iron Man star. ”We’re taking everything from [Iron Man's] first gauntlet test in the first movie up through the most extreme stuff we thought up for Iron Man 2 and The Avengers, and pulling on all of it and making this one big, extended challenge of physics,” explained Downey referring to a scene from the new film to Entertainment Weekly.
Downey also shared the film-appreciation movie theater visits that the cast and crew of Iron Man 3 participated in together during filming. They watched Iron Man 3 cinematographer John Toll’s Cloud Atlas, as well as Oscar-nominated Flight and Argo. "It’s nice knowing that you can go to a theater every weekend and see something good," said Downey.
While Iron Man 3 will see a lot of new talent in its cast, including Guy Pearce and Ben Kingsley as villain The Mandarin, many of the former cast will be returning as well. Among those returning is Don Cheadle as Rhodey, who will play a much bigger part in this third installment. “He’s much more dynamic. We’ve made this decision that while Tony is a technical guy, he’s not really a trained guy. There’s a lot of fun to be had with Don because he’s really good with hardware and he’s a martial artist,” Downey revealed.
An Iron Man 3 toy release might also be revealing some film spoilers. The Iron Man 3 Pop toys will come in 3 different suited up versions that have been featured in the films – the Mark 47 suit, the War Machine, the Iron Patriot, and one that hasn't – the Deep Space Suit. There are two popular theories regarding what this could mean. Either Tony Stark could be bumping into the Guardians of the Galaxy or he gets called with the Avengers to another planet, setting up The Avengers 2.
