Iron Man First Clip from ‘Iron Man 3’ written by Sean Gerber April 6, 2013 Yahoo! Movies has debuted the first official clip from “Iron Man 3.” Based on what we’ve seen in the trailers, Ben Kingsley’s Mandarin less than graciously accepts Tony Stark’s invitation with disastrous results. As for the clip, Robert Downey, Jr.’s intensity is great and makes me wonder just what pushed him so far over the edge, if this really occurs before his home is attacked in the film. “Iron Man 3” will be in theaters May 3, 2013.

January 11, 2012 New ‘Iron Man 3’ Poster February 28, 2013 Robert Downey, Jr. is Still Iron Man June 20, 2013 Stock It seems Marvel is putting Iron Man out there as the anti-Batman. Not only will he kill, but Tony Stark vows to kill his enemies. He does it not in an internal monologue or in a moment of honesty to his best girl, but he declares it to the world, and intentionally provokes his adversary. Assuming this takes place before the trailer footage of his home being destroyed and he and Pepper flung about the room, its a tad bit reckless, I’d say. And it proves the Mandarin’s lesson #1: In the Marvel world, heroes don’t exist. At least not in the person of Tony Stark. Interesting, telling, but not very inspirational. Besides, hasn’t he already had this character arc? Now, if Superman ever acts like that, you’ve got a real problem. Naes I’m just amazed they’ve managed to bring the Mandarin to the big screen. He’s not exactly Marvel’s most politically correct villain- being a Fu Manchu stereotype in his early appearances and all. If you would have told me 15 years ago that “Ben Kingsley will play the Mandarin in Iron Man 3” that sentence would have overloaded by synapses and blown my mind. I would have thought “Wait there’s going to be an Iron Man movie, and at least 3 of them, and Oscar winning actor Ben (the Ghandi) Kingsley is going to be the Mandarin? Whaa?!” Kids don’t know how well good it is for them nowadays. I think I’ll torture my kids by making them watch “Steel,” “Spawn” and “Meteor Man”.
