What has Tony Stark kept himself busy with since the New York City battle in The Avengers? Diving head-first into his work, his art, his obsession: the Iron Man suits.
One of the joys of Iron Man 3 will be witnessing Stark’s new toys. As director Shane Black states in this featurette, the film is set during a time when Stark has built a whopping forty-two suits, each with a different strength and purpose. We featured a few of these suits along with some general specifications a couple of weeks ago. What role they’ll play in the film will be integral to the plot. As Robert Downey Jr. proudly exclaims, they’ll be part of one of the biggest third acts seen in any Marvel superhero film.
Even if you’re not too keen on the toys, this featurette is stuffed with new footage from Iron Man 3. It’ll wet your whistle until the film’s release on May 3rd.
Marvel’s “Iron Man 3″ pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is 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?
