Iron Man 3 pits genius billionaire Tony Stark (Iron Man) against the Mandarin, an enemy whose reach has no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed by his mysterious nemesis, he embarks on a dangerous quest to find who is responsible. His journey will test his character at every turn. With Stark’s back against the wall, he’s left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?
With the release of ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier,’ we now have our ninth film of the Marvel Studios continuity since the first ‘Iron Man’ debuted in 2008. It’s a weird thing, these movies have happened so relatively fast, re-watching them now, it’s hard not to have that, Oh, that’s right, Jeff Bridges was actually in ‘Iron Man’ moment. The Marvel movies come so quickly, it almost feels like an analogy to the current state of hyper-accelerated culture itself.
Anyway, here’s a ranking of all of the one-movie-only peripheral Marvel characters played by known actors that we haven’t quite forgotten, but at least deserve to be remembered as part of an Internet list. (Marvel One-Shot short films do not count.)
Just last month, Marvel released the first clip from their upcoming one-shot, 'All Hail the King,' and today they've unleashed a new one featuring quasi-villain Mandarin -- or Trevor Slattery, rather, played by Ben Kingsley. Seems we haven't seen the last of Slattery following his involvement in 'Iron Man 3,' and we'll be able to see more of his story when 'Thor: The Dark World' hits DVD and Blu-ray this month. If you're impatient, we've got another sneak peek at Kingsley reprising his role in the new short.
Just when you thought you'd seen the last of Ben Kingsley's Mandarin (or Trevor Slattery, rather), Marvel has pulled him back in for an all new One-Shot for their upcoming release of 'Thor: The Dark World' on Blu-ray. In the new short film, Slattery sits down with an inquisitive reporter for his first interview since landing in prison, and we've got a sneak peek at Kingsley reprising his role in the first clip.
When Marvel first unveiled the details to the upcoming 'Thor: The Dark World' Blu-ray release, fans were intrigued by one detail included among the extra features -- an all-new Marvel One-Shot. While the project was originally shrouded in mystery, the first photos and details from the short film have been release, and it centers around -- yup, you guessed it -- 'Iron Man 3' star Ben Kingsley!
At some point today, 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' will officially pass 'Iron Man 3' at the box-office to become the biggest movie of 2013 with just over $409 million. This may not sound like a huge deal, but this marks the first time a female-led movie has topped the yearly box-office chart in almost 50 years.
After two unfortunate 'Punisher' movies (we're going to forget the old Dolph Lundgren version), Marvel Studios got the rights back to the franchise and many hoped that would mean big things for Frank Castle. The fanboy flames were stoked even further when there was a glimpse of what appeared to be The Punisher's iconic skull logo in 'Iron Man 3.' Could this be laying the groundwork for The Punisher in future Marvel movies?
So, what exactly happened here? More importantly, what does this mean for the future of studio filmmaking? It’s easy to imagine Hollywood looking at what happened this summer and learning plenty of lessons; but, maybe, not always the right ones.
'Iron Man 3' comes out on DVD and Blu-ray this September 24 with a butt-load of extra features, including a preview of the upcoming 'Thor 2' on the Blu-ray. You're gonna want to own that 'Iron Man 3' Blu-ray and you can get a taste of the incredible special features with a tease of 'Thor: The Dark World' right now.
If you've seen 'Iron Man 3' (or even the many trailers), you know that there are many Iron Man armors in the movie. But, there were almost many more. As the 'Iron Man 3' DVD and Blu-ray approaches in September, we now have a brief look at some of the 'Iron Man 3' armors that were designed for the movie, but never used.
Now that 'Iron Man 3' has officially passed the $400 million mark at the box office, Tony Stark's third solo adventure is just about to leave theaters and head straight to your home media collection. In a few months, you'll be able to purchase Shane Black's delightful superhero adventure for yourself on DVD and Blu-ray, but will it be worth it? Marvel has released the details of the package to help you decide if the special features will push this one into the "must buy" column for you.
