And now the second big wave of Marvel Cinematic Universe films begins and comes to us via “Iron Man 3” where Robert Downey Jr. reprises his role as both Tony Stark and Iron Man. I know I’ve broadcast about this already when we got the first official trailer, but you should know that I eat this stuff up. Iron Man will be going head to head with The Mandarin who is being played by Ben Kingsley and we can also count on Don Cheadle reprising his role as Rhodey and donning an altered version of the War Machine armor we saw in “Iron Man 2”. While this looks exciting, I am a tad skeptical about a non-Chinese Mandarin but let’s see how they work this explanation out if they do it at all.
I’ve closed the means to comment on this one so I avoid any spoiler reviews being left here. My hope is to see the film as soon as possible but I don’t think I will add any sort of review to the site until it comes out on DVD. A link to the trailers can be found HERE if you have not yet seen one.
We tend to geek out over here for the Comic Book stuff on the PiercingMetal Musings Blog and have been proving our proud Nerd factor time and time again with the review of the various titles and whenever possible some discussion of the very exciting Marvel Cinematic Universe films. I never mentioned this but it doesn’t matter at this point, but I didn’t see “Iron Man” when it first came out. It was a very busy time in life so I needed to wait for DVD but I did catch “The Incredible Hulk” in the cinema and loved how the building of a shared universal timeline was happening with these characters. Wasn’t it fantastic that those films led to not only a second Iron Man film, but also a Thor and Captain America one and brought us to the blockbuster hit of 2012 – “The Avengers”.
That exciting film brings us to the next go round for Iron Man who will battle for his life against The Mandarin (who will be played by Ben Kingsley). Since the trailer has just been put online I am sharing with you readers so we can get a little dialogue going about the premise and what we hope it all will amount to. Of course it will be followed by the second Thor and Captain American films before we get a sequel to The Avengers. Take a look.
