From the earliest days of his appearances in Marvel Comics' 'Tales of Suspense,' Tony Stark has always been modeled after aviator/inventor/industrialist Howard Hughes. With 'Iron Man 3,' Stark assumes a new dimension of Hughes' persona: that of the paranoid shut-in who, in his later years, became notorious for roaming his private floor of the Desert Inn Hotel in Las Vegas, freaking out about invisible germs and collecting jars of his own urine. 'Iron Man 3's' Tony Stark, played once again by the inimitable Robert Downey Jr.isn't quite that bad, but he's getting there.
After the events chronicled in 'The Avengers,' where Manhattan was nearly leveled by invading aliens and Tony himself was almost killed, he's become obsessed with upgrading his armor -- leaping all the way from the Mark VII to the Mark 42 in a matter of months. When anyone mentions New York or aliens, Tony gets panic attacks. There's a reason Daredevil, not Iron Man, is the Marvel hero known as "The Man Without Fear." Poor Tony is terrified.
'Iron Man 3' may not have opened in the United States yet, but it's already a smash hit overseas, earning more money in its opening weekend than 'The Avengers' did. There's a reason why movie studios are starting to think internationally when it comes to their blockbusters -- people in other countries want to see these movies just as much as Americans and a successful international release can double or triple a domestic gross.
There's been lots of talk lately of 'Iron Man 3' being the last of the Iron Man movies. And that may very well be a (sad) possibility. But that doesn't mean it's the end of the Iron Man universe. While promoting 'Iron Man 3,' star Don Cheadle talked about the very real chance that we'll see a spinoff War Machine movie in the future. Cheadle even has some very definite ideas on what 'War Machine' would be all about.
Although it doesn't open in the United States for another week and change, 'Iron Man 3' has already started rolling out internationally, garnering its fair share of rave reviews. While some audiences are already getting the chance to see the whole movie, we simply have to sit back and play the waiting game. Well, at least the waiting game involves a new behind-the-scenes look and footage from the film!
The 'Iron Man' movies did gangbusters at the box office -- the first one has a lifetime gross close to $600 million worldwide while the second one surpassed that mark -- and now 'Iron Man 3' is looking to make just as much if not more. However, will this be the last outing for Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark and Don Cheadle's Rhodey? It "could be."
Enough movies are opening in IMAX these days that exclusive posters have become the norm. However, few have been as truly cool as this new one-sheet for 'Iron Man 3,' which will be given out to the lucky folks who attend IMAX midnight screenings of the highly anticipated new film.
