How IRON MAN 3 Should Have Ended

Although I’ve pretty much relayed many Marvel and DC articles to my Google+ account (which you can follow here), there are times when it deserves a post, like this video.

Rebecca Hall Talks Iron Man 3

At the Broadcasting Press Guild Television and Radio Awards, Rebecca Hall not only got to talk about her co-star in Parade’s End, Benedict Cumberbatch, but she also spoke briefly about working on Iron Man 3 as well as working with Ben Kingsley, who plays the Mandarin in the film.  The Iron Man 3 details starts at the 1:05 mark.

Ben Kingsley on The Mandarin

“I didn’t have any template to copy. I’m undereducated as far as Marvel comics are concerned, and that can be a good thing, like coming to a Shakespeare play fresh rather than having done it 20 times… [It’s a] human portrayal of evil, on a grand scale. [Mandarin] released demonic layers in me…I did go a little crazy!”

And apparently, he may be doing some cosplay at some of the premieres: 

“Ben’s designer will travel to the state soon to narrow down on the details of the dress, namely the fabric, colors and designs. Ben wants to wear something different for all the premiers and since he had a connect with Gujarat, he decided to go for a Gujarati dress.”

Superhero Saturday: Marvel – ‘IRON MAN 3’

J.J. Abrams Lends Advice for Third Act

ironman3-jj-abrams

There were a couple times in Iron Man 3 where our lifeline was we’d call Jon Favreau. ‘What do we do?’ He’d be like, ‘Stick with this. Stick with the love story,’ or whatever. Then he’d say, ‘Wait, didn’t we used to do this same thing with Shane?’ Because we reached out to Shane a bunch, particularly in the first Iron Man.

Then I think we reached out to J.J. Abrams at one point when we were really confused in Act III, and he helped us, too. It’s just interesting. Usually you think, in the legacy of filmmakers that come and go, there’s something so evocative about how strange it is that this particular strain of the Marvel universe was so successful, so what are the reasons for that and how do we keep that vital and just have fun?

Tony Stark’s New Ride

ironman3-audi-r8-etron-fi

This new Iron Man 3 photo gives us a look at Tony Stark showing off his new ride, the Audi R8 e-tron. It’s the first electric car from the German automaker. It’s not just a product placement car though, there’s a reason they used this car in the movie. Variety reports that “Marvel was looking for a car partner that could provide a hybrid or electric-powered convertible for the movie since the drop top plays a significant role in the script.”

Robert Downey Jr. Votes for Pepper

When told that he couldn’t have both Pepper and Rhodey in The Avengers, he opted for Pepper. For Iron Man 3, this is what he had to say about more action for the female character:
im3-trailer2-web-5

“How do we have it so she’s not going [whining], ‘Tony!’ and I’m going [growling], ‘Where’s Pepper?’… That’s the other thing that I have been pushing for. She’s in great shape, she’s really game. There’s all these genre movies and you have these capable women and they’re like, ‘Oh my god, some action is happening, I better step away or get caught in something over here.’ It’s like, ‘Really, is that where we’re at in the 21st century?’”

Kevin Feige on the Damsel in Distress Issue

Kevin Feige admits to a love triangle, but not the usual kind:

“The love triangle in this movie is really between Tony, Pepper and the suits. Tony, Pepper and his obsession with those suits, and the obsession with technology. And, it’s sort of unique for a big superhero summer blockbuster franchise to have that kind of layers.

Yes, there’s a bad guy. Yes, the stakes are very, very high–the President of the United States is in danger. Air Force One is attacked. There are big stakes to this movie. But the real stakes are, is Tony going to be able to set aside the obsession to spend all day, every day in that workshop, tinkering with the suits in order to focus on, as he says in the trailer, the one thing that matters most – Pepper. And that actually is what the entire movie’s about.”

ironman31228913
He goes onto to answer the question of Pepper having to “suit up” as well:

“I will tell you this. In this movie [Iron Man 3] we play with the convention of the damsel in distress. We are bored by the damsel in distress. But, sometimes we need our hero to be desperate enough in fighting for something other than just his own life. So, there is fun to be had with ‘Is Pepper in danger or is Pepper the savior?’ over the course of this movie.

In terms of where we go with future movies, we’ll see. In the comic books she does get a taste for the suit and becomes her own hero named Rescue, who doesn’t necessarily battle other people, but is on missions to help people and to save people. Will we do that down the line with Gwyneth Paltrow? Who knows. But her being in the suit is something we have been playing with since Iron Man 2, where we did some designs and it didn’t end up fitting in that movie. But the little taste you saw here [in an Iron Man 3 clip] is something that we’re certainly interested in. “

Superhero Saturday: Marvel – ‘IRON MAN 3’ – Possible *Spoilers*

RDJ TALKS ABOUT DESTINY, AND BLACK TALKS ABOUT DIRECTING

Here’s what he said to Esquire about his role as Iron Man:

I think Iron Man wound up being the first time I screen-tested since Chaplin. As far as I was concerned, it was destiny. Now, I can’t tell you how many people are sitting around with the cold, hard evidence that it wasn’t. I just wasn’t going to let lack of perseverance, lack of preparation, or lack of prayer get in the way. I just went crazy — in a good way. And suddenly it occurred to me, Oh my God, Stan Lee might not know this, but everything he created has all been leading to this moment. It’s me. Then I thought, Hold on a second, dude, is this just some sort of neurotic personality meltdown happening here? And then I thought, Nah, that feels different.

Here’s what director Shane Black told Premiere about Iron Man 3 and being approached to direct:

I have the feeling that the story that we have developed for Iron Man 3 actually concluded a trilogy, while [also] leaving the door open to a fourth. I had a lot of discussions on this subject: “Is that it is the last Iron Man for Robert? ” . Something tells me that it will not be the case, and will be seen in a fourth, or fifth … But I can be a little excited.

When Marvel hires a director, the script of the film is generally already written. Except that they had someone who is a writer at the base … This was a problem at first, because they had already hired Drew Pierce to write Iron Man 3. I was like, “But I do not need this Drew Pierce, what’s the story?” (laughs) I finally agreed to meet him, and it was immediately heard. Today I am not only a fan of Drew Pierce, but I’ve also become a friend. He came [to my] home everyday, we asked our leaf and our pencil and brainstorming from morning to night. The script was really written for four hands. Excellent collaboration because they had already hired Drew Pierce to write.

FINAL POSTER AND ROBERT ON HEADS-UP DISPLAY 

Final-Iron-Man-3-Poster-small

via SlashFilm.

Yahoo! Movies also recently talked to Downey Jr. about the movie where he talked about the challenges of working in the Heads-Up Display (HUD), which is used for scenes when you can’t see Downey’s face behind his mask. Apparently it’s the toughest part of playing Iron Man for him. Even though he loves the job he says, “you wouldn’t know from my disposition every time I have to go in and work, because it’s like irritation therapy.”

He then goes into more details about the process of shooting those scenes involving the HUD. Those scenes are actually shot after he’s finished filming the action scenes, so he’s got to act really intense when he’s recording them alone in a studio, like he’s really in the heat of battle. “When you do the HUD work, usually it’s kind of the last thing in the schedule. And you’re going back and essentially leaving the movie again in close-up, tired.” He went on to tease a possible sequence from Iron Man 3 involving Pepper Potts saying,

I don’t like, [as himself] ‘All right. What’s happening now?’ [as the director] ‘Oh, the most important woman in your life is falling off crane into a fiery pit. Okay? So, let’s just rehearse once and then we’ll do it about 10 or 12 times until the camera is right and you’ve given enough.’ They’re just screaming direction at you… I like the scenes. I like the action.

Downey Jr. then goes on to talk about wearing the actual Iron Man armor on set, saying that the new costume is lighter and more flexible. But he also says, “There is no comfortable version of it, so it’s kind of like, ‘Hey, don’t you think these bamboo chutes are actually a little less rough on the cuticle until they get down to the nerve?'”

THE MANDARIN RINGS WILL NOT HAVE SPECIAL POWERS

According to Shane Black, although the Mandarin is wearing rings, they will not have any powers like they do in the comics.  

im3-mandarin-rings

“I hate to break it to you, but he’s not from space in this. The rings are rings. They’re showmanship, they’re accoutrements. They’re paraphernalia of warfare that he sort of drapes himself with. He studies Sun Tzu, he studies insurgency tactics. He surrounds himself with dragons and symbols of warlords and Chinese iconography because he wants to represent this sort of prototypical terrorist who—we use as the example Colonel Kurtz from Apocalypse Now—may have been an American, may have been a British National, someone who is out there doing field work, supervising atrocities for the intelligence community who went nuts in the field and became this sort of devotee of war tactics, and now has surrounded himself with a group of people over which he presides, and the only thing that unifies them is this hatred of America.”

“One of the joys for me has always been seeing how you take a villain from the comic book and realize him in a slightly more realistic way for the movie—render him for movies in a way that’s recognizable, but different. That’s fun. Like the Joker in The Dark Knight is not the Joker from the comic book, but there’s just enough of him that you recognize him and go, ‘Wow, what a creative way of interpreting the Joker for motion pictures.’ So that was our task here, too. The fans love this character of the Mandarin and we just said, ‘Well, what we don’t want is this potentially racist, stereotype of a Fu Manchu villain just waving his fist.’”

ROBERT TALKS ABOUT HIS IRON MAN CONTRACT

iron-man-3-robert-downey-jr4

He may feel like maybe 4 films is 1 too many, but maybe not: 

“I was annoyed for a while about, you know, you have a contract where in success, very little changes for you and then they make all this dough. But then I think about it and it’s like, ‘What was I really doing before I got Iron Man?’ Then I go, ‘Don’t lead with that, Robert! That’s not where we are! You’re a big prime mover!’ And I go, ‘Yeah, yeah, I get that. I could talk about that for two hours. But let’s look at what really happened here.’

So I’m a big believer in: I don’t like leverage, I don’t like negotiating. I like being really straight and saying, ‘Okay, let’s really look at this.’ I’m not going to pretend I’m over it and whatever. I mean, obviously it’s better to have a contract run out then it is to have one go on indefinitely—I guess that’s why contracts have limits on them. Let me just say me and the agents and the lawyers are having a bit of a ball right now. ‘You pinch me! No, you pinch me!’”

Of course he was paid handsomely, but is that what this is about?

“I don’t like this whole, and I think it’s a particularly Western thing—well, not any more because we’re kind of being out-paced by the East, business-wise—but that thing of, ‘We got ‘em—now let’s screw ‘em to the floor!’ It’s like, is that what gets you off? Making people feel bad? ‘Ugh, they really put the screws to us, brother?’ Weren’t we excited about the future a couple years ago and now we’re just laying the boots to each other? It’s just so disgusting. I’m an artist!”

Then again, who else would play Tony Stark just as perfectly? 

“There’s, to me, that kind of wish list or grab bag of things. ‘We haven’t been able to get this in the movie yet—maybe this time we’ll get to—!’ or whatever. I put so much onus on Iron Man 3Iron Man 3 was supposed to answer all the questions for the audience, cure all of my uncomfortable moments in the past with playing this character, and get in every idea that fell by the wayside in the last three movies. And then we shot the movie and I still feel there’s a couple other things we’ve gotta do.”

KEVIN FEIGE ON POST-CREDITS SCENE

avengers-shwarma

Kevin was asked basically if there was a post-credits scene in Iron Man 3: 

One of the signatures of the Marvel films starting with Iron Man, and I understand it was part function but also it became something that was fun for you guys to play with, was the notion of the after credits teaser, using that as a sting and using that to kind of point direction to the next thing.  I understand on Phase One there’s almost a necessity.

Feige: Yes.

You guys were using that as a building thing.

Feige: Yes.

Do you feel obligated now in Phase 2 as you move towards Phase 3, do you have to do that on every film?  Is that something that has become part of how you think about these movies or is it case by case if we have something that’s appropriate you’ll use?

Feige: It’s sort of case by case.  I don’t want to be in that theater for the first time when even 2 people stay behind and nothing happens, frankly.  I like that we’ve trained at least some people to stay behind and get a little reward, but you’re absolutely right it served a different purpose.  It was a part of the, “Hey surprise, these are connected. We’re building towards something here.” Shawarma, which everyone knows famously was an idea we came up with much, much later and shot after the premiere just because we thought it would be fun.  There was not going to be a tag until that point.  So it’s a little faster and looser now because people know, and frankly the whole purpose of Iron Man 3 is to say that these characters can exist just as successfully on their own again.  But, as I said I don’t want to be there when nothing happens after people sit through 8 minutes of credits.

Iron Man 3 Official Trailer

Iron Man 3 Official Trailer

And here’s what he had to say about why Iron Man doesn’t ask for help from his fellow Avenger buddies:

Feige: It’s a good question, and it’s sort of half and half. I am betting that like the comics you don’t have to keep – if you are reading a standalone “Iron Man” comic, they don’t spend every page explaining where every other Marvel hero is. The audience kind of accepts that there are times when they’re on their own and there are times when they are together. I’m betting that movie audiences will feel the same way. That being said, there is a little bit of lip service here and there to that. There is also just the very nature of Tony wants to, once he barely survives that house attack you saw today, and even you saw it in the message he left for Pepper, he’s basically saying “I’m going off the grid to try to figure something out.”

SHANE BLACK ON THE MANDARIN’S BACK STORY

“[Mandarin] has an intelligence background. His nationality is not even clear because he’s shrouded in secrecy, but at some point, this field officer went nuts and became a student of warfare and ancient Chinese symbology and drew from South American insurgency tactics and has created around himself this little world of warfare,” Black said. “The only unifying principal of which seems to be a hatred of the United States, so he represents every terrorist, in a way. But specifically, he’s crafted himself in the manner of the Mandarin, of a warlord.”

The Mandarin is not Chinese in this origin, but he draws power from Chinese philosophy.

“I think that’s great, because you get to do the comic book, but you don’t have to deal with the specifics of Fu Manchu stereotyping,” Black said. “We’re not saying he’s Chinese. We’re saying that he in fact draws a cloak around him of Chinese symbols and dragons because it represents his obsession with Sun Tzu and various ancient arts of warfare that he has studied.”

A ROBERT DOWNEY JR. INTERVIEW

/Film: We’ve seen Tony Stark go through a lot in The Avengers. How did the events of that movie wind up helping him change for this one?

Well, we had to do something, you know? I thought, “Isn’t it odd that he had this experience? And why was he suddenly just in New York for one summer?” We know why he was there. Stark Tower. But what he was doing there was really building an architecture for a third act set piece. I wanted him back home and I thought, “What if that happened to any of us? Wouldn’t we be a little tripped out? You’d be watching your back.” Then I thought about this 21st century reality and kind of oddball zeitgeist of America and terrorism and all he weirdo stuff that this country seems to generate and co-create. So I thought should be a little freaked out.

We always had this idea where we wanted Tony and Rhodey to be at this place two miles away from where his house is called Neptune’s Net on the PCH. I really wanted to see them at Neptune’s Net with their suits just parked outside like motorcycles. They’re inside and just two guys. I didn’t even know if we could get Neptune’s Net. There’s licensing. It’s like saying, “Let’s go shoot at Spago!” I was like, “Is it? Did you ask them?” I wanted that kind of sensibility and so did Shane. We both wanted them just sitting on a couch with a martini. I go, “A martini? Hold on now!” “Alright! Just sitting on the couch. Pepper comes home. There he is.” Shane had all these iconic images and I had my own. The studio and Kevin [Feige] had an equal amount of theirs. It turned into this really surprising and entertaining and really deep and cool movie.

/Film: At a certain point during the production of this movie, Joss Whedon was hired as a sort of universal overseer. What did he bring to Iron Man 3?

I think, honestly, what he brought was momentum. It’s a twofold thing. When you have something that’s just an unprecedented smash, you can sort of relax for a second, but you’re also following that. He brought us a lot. He brought us a lot of comfort and a fair amount of performance anxiety (laughs).

SPOILERS – POSSIBLE IRON LEGION APPEARANCE

In two weeks fans may have a chance to see the Iron Legion (army?) in action when the second official Iron Man 3 trailer hits theaters, attached to Disney’s Oz the Great and Powerful on March 8th. The new trailer was officially classified PG last week with a run-length of 2:25. According to sources of Bleeding Cool who’ve seen the new trailer, it features the following (summarized in bullet form):

  • U.S. President declares war on The Ten Rings and Mandarin

  • Multiple shots of The Mandarin, threatening Tony Stark

  • Stark upset, tells Mandarin it’s personal and that he’s coming for him

  • Stark and Rhodey flying together into battle, along with the Iron Legion

  • There are “dozens” of Iron Man suits flying with them and Stark refers to them as “his boys”

  • The additional armors all look different (more evidence on those rumors of mixing and matching), many with never-before-seen designs

  • There’s a final shot of a large armor suit bashing through a wall and although unconfirmed, it might be the Hulkbuster or some variation of it

EMPIRE MAGAZINE REVEALS DETAILS OF SEEN FOOTAGE

One of the scenes incuded Tony Stark crash landing and getting help from a ten year old boy. It’s also confirmed that Aldrich Killian (Guy Pearce) works for The Mandarin, and also uses the ‘Extremis’ technology to gain superhuman powers. Iron Man won’t be fighting a giant Robot in this movie, he’ll be fighting people with superhuman powers due to the nano technology! This seriously sounds really cool! Here are the details…

The scene ends with Stark, bloodied and dazed, flying away not entirely in control of his malfunctioning prototype. He lands hundreds of miles away in a snowy field, where, out of power, he can’t get in touch with Pepper. Or Rhodey. Or The Avengers, neatly sidestepping that question.

Breaking into a deserted-looking garage, the tone then zigzags again as Tony is startled by a ten year-old kid, Harley (Ty Simpkins) sparking what [Drew] Pearce calls the film’s “sci-fi Capra” phase. “We loved the idea of doing something classically Spielbergian – a kid finds a superhero in a shed. Their relationship is not something you would traditionally see in Spielberg, though; it’s bawdier, more fractious.”

Extremis is a scientific program invented by Hansen and abused by the Mandarin and his right-hand man, Guy Pearce’s slimy Aldrich Killian. It rewrites the operating system of the body, upgrading strength, speed and durability to the very zenith of human possibility.

“We’re calling it a biological reality and there’s a science behind it that allows people to glow and rip apart Iron Man suits,” says Feige. “Frankly, Shane was not interested, and we were not interested, in having another armoured character and another armoured character fight. We’ve done that twice before.”

MORE DETAILS REVEALED BY CAST AND DIRECTOR

Director Shane Black says this about Tony Stark: 

“Tony Stark is [now] relying on these suits to feel like he’s in any way capable. He surrounds himself with these things almost like a blanket. In The Avengers, he fought aliens, but he was the one character I would not have picked to fight aliens. Now we’ve taken advantage of the fact that he’s fought aliens and he talks about it.”

Gwyneth Paltrow says this about Pepper Potts: 

“[She still] adores Tony, but she absolutely gets fed up with him. He gets caught in a feedback look.”

Ben Kingsley says this about the power-hungry Mandarin: 

“[The Mandarin is] a pastiche of American iconography. It’s there to confuse – you don’t know what’s coming next. Shane allowed me to push the boundaries of the role so that I’m allow to go a bit bonkers.”

Don Cheadle says this about being the Iron Patriot:

“The name [Iron Patriot] makes as much sense as Iron Man. [laughs] It’s a new and interesting look. I don’t know how, personally, I’d feel about being draped in the flag, but Rhodey doesn’t care what the paint job is like. He just wants it to do what it does.”

Black concludes with Tony Stark’s emergence to battle The Mandarin: 

“Robert’s portrayal of Tony is ultimately the American cowboy who defies authority, thinks for himself and is fiercely individualistic. That’s an America we like to believe in, which is why The Mandarin, who hates America, is a good match for Tony in this movie.”

POSSIBLE RECASTING FOR TONY STARK AFTER IRON MAN 3

Robert Downey Jr.‘s contract with Marvel is up after Iron Man 3, so even though he loves playing Tony Stark and would like to continue for The Avengers 2, nothing’s guaranteed.  So, it’s possible, if things aren’t right for RDJ, they’ll have to recast.  Here’s what Robert says about the whole thing:

“Let’s just say that the only thing I ever let go of had claw marks in it.”

“There’s a little bit of soul reclamation going on. I feel that the first time I played Tony, I did it best,” he said. “Sorry! The affinity with Tony now is: how do you sustain something? I’m not stupid, I like to play ball, I love the company, I love the character, and the business side of things, I’m not to picky about that either.”

(About recasting) “It would probably be the best thing in the world for me. You know, ego…but sometimes ego just has to be smashed. Let’s see what happens. I take the audience very seriously – I feel bad when I see folks doing movies and the audience is like, ‘Don’t do that anymore.’ I don’t have to overstay my welcome.”

Tony’s going to be there, but they have yet to confirm whether it’s Robert.

via TheMarySue.

But then again, Shane Black had this to say in an interview with Premiere: 

“There has been a lot of discussion about it: ‘Is this the last Iron Man for Robert?’ Something tells me that it will not be the case, and will be seen in a fourth, or fifth … But I can be a little excited…”
