Everything You Should Know before seeing Iron Man 3

(Source Marvel.com)

So, Iron Man 3 came out yesterday (the banner above says April 24th, because that’s when it came out in the U.K.), and I decided to make a post on everything you need to know before watching the third installment in the Marvel series “Iron Man”.

So we’ll get started with the plot, IMDB says:

“When Tony Stark’s world is torn apart by a formidable terrorist called the Mandarin, he starts an odyssey of rebuilding and retribution.”

But I don’t like that. It doesn’t really tell us anything. I just got back from watching it, and I think I could get the absolute perfect build up to Iron Man 3, based on what people have seen in trailers, TV Spots, and what we can comfortably guess from recent Marvel news itself.

The 1st trailer starts with Tony Stark saying: “I’m Tony Stark, I build neat stuff, I got a great girl, and occasionally I save the world, so… why can’t I sleep?” It turns out that after Tony got back from the wormhole (in The Avengers), he just hasn’t been the same.

The latest posters from IMPawards:


So here’s what we know from “Iron Man”, “Iron Man 2”, and “The Avengers”.

Tony Stark (Iron Man) has fought the Iron Monger (“Iron Man”), Whiplash (“Iron Man 2”), and Loki (“The Avengers”). And now, the Mandarin in Iron Man 3.

And in each of those movies there is a secondary bad guy:

Throughout the Iron Man trilogy and The Avengers, Tony Stark has designed several different suits, 3 in the first movie, 3 in the second movie, 1 new one in The Avengers, and now something like 33 new suits in Iron Man 3.

From Omaha.com:


The thing you need to know about Iron Man 3, and it’s pretty awesome, is that Tony Stark has implanted devices into his skin so he can control each part of his suit to do whatever he wants, including assembling onto his body right before he goes into a fight. And I’ll tell you, it’s awesome.
