Tony is in for a world of hurt.

But it gives him an excuse to make more armor cheers

It's interesting that Tony has PTSD from The Avengers even though that was a win.

I like the repainted War Machine armor better than the Iron Patriot armor.

The scene where Tony's house is destroyed would've been 200% cooler if the gunships were replaced with Fin Fang Foom.

The Mandarin's voice seems off. I'm glad he has his rings, but I hope they still have unique alien powers. Iron Man fighting a regular terrorist leader with rings isn't a fair fight, but him fighting a terrorist leader with alien-powered rings is epic. Why does the tattoo on his neck look like Cap's shield had a baby with the Avengers logo? http://comicbook.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/the-mandarin-tattoo.jpg

It's actually a known Anarchist symbol.

It kinda reminds me of the original Obidiah Stane arc, when Stane had Pepper, Happy and his other friends kidnapped, then blew up the computer company that Stark founded (since Stane took over Stark International) and killed another friend in the explosion.

Kind of the way my uncle, who drove a tank into Berlin in April 1945 had it, even though the Allies won... yeah. Laughing

Even if it is an anarchy A on his neck tattoo, it's still done in Cap's shield colors. (it could also be a few other countries' flag colors.) If they'd used a different color scheme it wouldn't be so awkward. It seems hypocritical that a terrorist would-be dictator has an anarchy tat since usurping power is his goal, not true anarchy.

He's the the head of network of organized cells. Once you become part of a hierarchy, I doubt your commitment to anarchy.
I like the scenes of Tony in the snow since it's so distinct from the other movies, but it also makes me want to see his obscure arctic armor (purple & silver with pentagonal arc reactor) on screen. Iron Man actually does have all those kooky mission specific armor variants toy companies make just to fill out assortments. Those variants would sell so much better if the were actually in the movies. He didn't eveny wear his fuglly deep sea & space armors for those scenes in Avengers where he's underwater or in space. Throw Hasbro a bone, Marvel Studios!

Im sure Hot Toys is licking their chops too at the thought of multiple armor variants.

Loving the new trailer! So great to see my favorite superhero (since I was a kid) get so much love. IM2 was a little disappointing after the first one, but I like where they seem to be going with this.

Just got back home from seeing it. T'was FANTASTIC!

Here's my review - I don't particularly think there's anything spoiler-y here, however it COULD ruin a few upcoming surprises in the film, so please read this review at your own risk:

Crap... I wish I hadn't read that...

Now I have to ask, what do you mean a final hoorah for Downey in the role?

Sorry! I thought I'd kept it pretty clean and spoiler-free. I've spoiler tagged it now just in case... Apologies, my friend. :/

Downey's not sure about the future of Iron Man, but he'll at least be in Avengers 2 for sure.

If he really doesn't want to do the solo films anymore then I'd be cool with him just returning for the Avengers films. It'd be better than losing him altogether.

Here's some of the speculation (don't worry, no spoilers in this Razz):

Is Ironman 3 considered part of Phase 2 or not? I have read that Phase 2 begins with Thor 2,so I am not sure.

I'd say it should be. They released a Phase 1 collection of the Marvel movies, so I'd assume it'd be the first of the new one. Perhaps that meant that Thor: The Dark World will be the first chronologically?

BIG SPOILERS!



This was leagues above Iron Man 2!
At Free Comic Book Day, I showed my friends the fold-out spoiler covers DC did last month. Before the movie one asked if there'd be a post-credits stinger, & another said instead they'd have a fold-open beginning that spoiles the movie. And then Iron Man 3 actually did!
I loved how many of the action sequences required Tony to use ingenuity to solve problems. Killing a helicopter with a piano was also cool.
I'm glad they didn't have Tony fight more evil guys in armor. I still don't get how Extremis works, so I'll go with magic. The Extremis woman Tony fought was Ellen Brandt, Man-Thing's ex-wife!
I'm really annoyed they used AIM without having a single scene of guys in a clean lab dressed like yellow beekeepers. How do you miss that?
I would've liked to see more of the specialty armors. It seemed a little too easy that Tony could pop in & out of them so quick while JARVIS pilotted all of them autonomously. It looked like Killian was hacking Tony's limbs off a few times but Extremis powers can't slice all the way through his armor for plot reasons. Only Tony Stark could be so wealthy that he'd blow up several multi-billion dollar armors on a whim rather than saving them for the next emergency.
I'm glad the kid wasn't too cloying & Tony was still a prick to him.
The Mandarin was a great parody of Nolan's fake Ra's al Ghul & Bane's voice. That said, I felt it was a mistake not making Iron Man's top foe an actual villain. There was lots of controversy over whether Mandarin was just a Yellow Peril carricature, but instead of adressing that by showing him being a great villain they just took the easy way out by making him a joke. The retcon that Aldrich Killian was always behind the Ten Rings doesn't make sense since they were actual terroristsdoing real terrorist stuff in the first movie. If Killian just co-opted the Ten Rings logo, wouldn't the real Ten Rings disavow the fake Mandarin? Isn't a white guy using an Asian as a patsy the most racist way they could've approached the character?
I was confused about the Iron Patriot armor. The War Machine armor was Iron Man Mark II upgraded by Justin Hammer. Tony logs into AIM's files using Rhodey's account (WARMACHINEROX = best password) & implies that AIM worked on the Iron Patriot armor. Given Tony's paranoia, why would he let yet another company tamper with his armor? If AIM upgraded Rhodey's armor, why'd they have to melt him out of the armor instead of using an access override they installed?
Of course the VP was evil; he's Miguel Ferrer! Only he could make William Sadler look benevolent by comparisson.
Hearing more about Roxxon was nice.
The part wher he signed the girl's drawing while having wormhole PTSD was really creepy.
The Aldrich Killian posters made him look very Miami Vice so it was funny that he was actually based out of Miami. Him breathing fire was so badass.
It was nice to see Pepper be awesome briefly. I was annoyed at the end when they said they "fixed" her. I don't want her to overheat, but Extremis powers are too awesome to give up. I want to see Extremis Pepper helping out the Avengers while Tony makes her dinner.
