Hitting theaters May 3, 2013, Iron Man 3 returns Robert Downey, Jr. as the iconic super hero character Tony Stark/Iron Man along with Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts, Don Cheadle as James “Rhodey” Rhodes and Jon Favreau as Happy Hogan.
Iron Man 3 is loosely based on Warren Ellis' six-issue "Extremis" comic book story arc which focuses on the spread of a virus through nanotechnology that eventually causes Tony Stark to engineer a new suit that is integrated directly into his body. The Mandarin, a terrorist villain and leader of the 10 Rings organization featured in the first two films, will finally make his entrance into the franchise.
Filming is currently underway in Wilmington, North Carolina, and a few new set photos and video have recently made their way online showing a scene where Iron Man rescues a group of people mid-flight:
Iron Man 3 is directed by Shane Black based off of a script by Drew Pierce. The film stars Robert Downy Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Scarlett Johansson, Sir Ben Kingsley, Guy Pearce, James Badge Dale and Ashley Hamilton.
Iron Man 3 is scheduled for theatrical release on May 3, 2013.
