IRON MAN 3 “Not a serious movie”

20121126-090549.jpgWhen the darker teaser trailer for Iron Man 3 debuted in October, people were concerned that Tony Stark and Co. were going to abandon the lighthearted tone that made the first 2 Iron Man films so fun to watch. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige assures fans that Iron Man 3 won’t be a gloomy affair.

Here’s what he said;

“It’s not a serious movie, but we seriously dig into exploring more of Tony. The trick is just trying to make great movies. We try to make them all great, all different and all fresh. What you’ll see in Iron Man 3 is some very unique directions that were taken.”

Director Shane Black also weighed in;

“We’re not aiming for bigger, necessarily. We’re aiming for different and fresh and new. It’s all about capturing that lightning-in-a-bottle feel, about trying to get as much into this as we can. We’re looking to get a ton of thrills into a short space, to make a nice little stew for you.”

Official Synopsis;

Marvel Studios’ 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?

We’ll have to see how it all pans out, but as long as Robert Downey Jr. wants to make Iron Man films, I’ll watch them.
