Iron-Man-3-IMAX-Poster-570x844

Who is Tony Stark? Who is Iron Man? Those questions are given a lot of attention in the third film in the Iron Man trilogy. Taking place after the world changing events of The Avengers, Iron Man 3 is really a sequel to that film, and yet, it seems to exist in a universe entirely separate from it. None of the characters from The Avengers appear in Iron Man 3. There is no S.H.E.I.L.D., no of Thunder, no sign that The Avengers ever happened, except, Tony Stark’s struggle to overcome some perfectly understandable anxiety after having pushed himself to his limits to save the world and almost failed. If I had one problem with the film, it’s that it could have been clearer that this was the reason The Avengers were kept at arms length by Stark.

Marvel Studios posted the first picture from the set of Iron Man 3 this morning. It’s a tantalizing shot of Tony Stark standing in front of a collection of various suits of armor previously designed and worn by the billionaire genius playboy philanthropist super hero.
