Iron Man 3 (stylized onscreen as Iron Man Three) is a 2013 American superhero film featuring the Marvel Comics character Iron Man, produced by Kevin Feige of Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.1 It is the sequel to Iron Man and Iron Man 2, and the seventh installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, being the first major release in the franchise since the crossover film The Avengers, and the third installment in the Iron Man film series. Shane Black directed a screenplay he co-wrote with Drew Pearce, which uses concepts from the “Extremis” story arc by Warren Ellis. Robert Downey, Jr. reprises his role as the title character, with Gwyneth Paltrow and Don Cheadle reprising their roles as Pepper Potts and James Rhodes, respectively. Jon Favreau, who directed the first two films, serves as an executive producer and reprises his role as Happy Hogan. Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Stephanie Szostak, James Badge Dale, and Ben Kingsley round out the film’s principal cast.

After the release of Iron Man 2 in May 2010, Favreau decided not to return as director, and in February 2011 Black was hired to rewrite and direct the film. Throughout April and May 2012, the film’s supporting cast was filled out, with Kingsley, Pearce, and Hall brought in to portray key roles. Filming began on May 23, 2012 in Wilmington, North Carolina. The film was shot primarily in North Carolina, with additional shooting in Florida, China and Los Angeles. The film’s visual effects were handled by 17 companies, including Scanline VFX, Digital Domain, and Weta Digital.

Iron Man 3 was converted to 3D in post-production.[7] The film premiered at the Grand Rex in Paris on April 14, 2013.[3] It was internationally released on April 25, 2013 in IMAX[8] and was released on May 3, 2013 in the United States.

Our Thoughts:

Marvel always delivers and this is no exception. Iron Man III is chock-full of the same non-stop action packed chases, thrills, chills, and effects as the previous two movies.  Stark has matured a bit, which was inevitable, and the episodes with the Avengers are not ignored by the surrounding cast and portrayed populace. The villains here are top-notch with a comedic twist that still has me rolling when I think about it. Highly Recommended, a 5 star winner.  MR
