Iron Man is getting a major upgrade on the big screen! Marvel announced Iron Man 3 will be released in 3D when it hits theaters May 3, 2013. Robert Downey Jr returns as Tony Stark in a new film directed by Shane Black and based in part on Iron Man Extremis by Warren Ellis and Adi Granov.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Marvel’s “Iron Man 3” pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?
In the comic book world Invincible Iron Man is coming to an end next week. Matt Fraction and Salvador Larroca are moving on after an amazing run. Kieron Gillen and Greg Land will launch a brand new Iron Man series next month.
