The official “Iron Man 3” trailer has been posted…and viewed…several times (man I am sad)…but you are not here to hear my grumblings on the trailer…yet. Here is the trailer and after…my response.
As you can see Tony’s world, is pretty much destroyed (In every sense of the word), now wipe the drool from your mouths, there is much to discuss. First, this trailer alone is better than the entirety of “Iron Man 2”! It seems director Shane Black and Marvel went back to the serious tone established in the first film, not the goofy, stupid and nonsensical ramblings of the sequel. Do I think there are possibly TOO many villains in this film, yes. BUT it seems they are attacking Tony Stark from ALL possible angles, psychologically, physically, and business..lly. I think the Mandarin looks great and I think Sir Ben Kingsley will do a very admirable job. I do not like the new “Iron Patriot” War Machine armor (if that’s what it is, I’m hoping not). Now the Iron Man suit, oh the suit. Although it looks better in the film than in the Comic-Con photos, it still doesn’t have enough red, in my opinion. I think the cast looks great, the tone looks pitch perfect, and hopefully this is the Iron Man’s “The Dark Knight”. Us Marvel fans who love serious psychological drama have not been recognized, but finally it seems we may. I have loved/liked almost every Marvel movie that has come out (except the first 2 “X-men” films, “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”, and “Spider-Man 3”). So I have very high hopes for this film and hopefully we get more into what is going on in Tony’s head and him being a DANGEROUS drunk instead of a SILLY drunk.
