Iron Man 3: “Not A Serious Movie” Says Kevin Feige



With the release of the Iron Man 3 trailer came waves of not only excitement, but perhaps a bit of skepticism.

The Iron Man 3 trailer revealed a much different take than its previous counterparts with it being a very dark showing.

Fans immediately noted the difference and remarked that it was missing that Tony Stark flavor.

However, it turns out that Iron Man 3 will not be all that dark and seems to be featuring that Robert Downey Jr. we all know and love from Iron Man and The Avengers.

Speaking with Sci-Fi Now Magazine, Marvel Studios president and producer Kevin Feige said that Iron Man 3 will not be so serious.

“Frankly, the first step of the grand plan with Iron Man 3 is to prove they are just as interesting, if not more so, by themselves as they were when they were all together in The Avengers,” Feige told Sci-Fi Now. “Iron Man 3, by design, is a very serious character study. It’s not a serious movie, but we seriously dug into exploring more of Tony, of Rhodey [Don Cheadle’s James ‘War Machine’ Rhodes and of Pepper [Potts, Gwyneth Paltrow], without calling SHIELD and calling Thor or Cap.”

Iron Man 3 blasts off May 3rd, 2013 directed by Shane Black and starring Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Gwyneth Paltrow and Don Cheadle.

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?
