Pretty damn good cast lined up for this one. Assuming Ben Kingsley doesn't sleep through this role like he's been doing for the past long while.

It stems from TH getting signed early and to a huge contract to lock him up. He got paid more than rdj. Everything went downhill afterwards. They lowballed him for im2.

I thought he played Rhodes really well.

The suit hides in the hollow sections of his bones.

Anyone have a links to how people know these behind the camera happenings of the Iron Man movie franchise.

I hate the inconsistency in the series.

Terence Howard gave IMO the perfect performance, actually looks like he could be in the armed forces, whereas cheadle does not and phoned in his performance.

I'd like to know the full dirt on this as well as Favreau's departure as director.

IMO Maggie Gyllenhaal swapped in for Katie Holmes was the only time I ever thought doing an actor swap was a good decision.

Extremis is an Awesome arc for iron man. making him a legitimate super hero because he essential becomes a cyborg. Him deleting his brain as a result of complications later makes it all worth it.
Also written and directed by shane black of Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and Lethal Weapon fame. Cant wait.

At least the premise sounds way better than the entirety of IM2. I still enjoyed that film, but man did the plot suffer and it dragged alot in the middle.

Terence and RDJ did have fantastic chemistry, but I can't see the Rhodey character being as important now they've gotten the introduction of War Machine out of the way (and the idea of Iron Man is settled in with people now he's an Avenger so the conflict over Stark being a "vigilante" isn't a factor) so Terence isn't a huge loss this time. Plus, I'd rather they keep things as consistent as possible from here on out, bringing back Terence would be fucking weird. (Also, he sounds like a prat and deserves to not be involved with this film and the buttload of money it will bring in)

Terrance was a terrible Rhodey. TERRIBLE. That any of you think that the character he portrayed would ever suit up in something as gruffly named as the WAR MACHINE suit: you're crazy. And terrible. Yourself.

He played a good damp squip foil to Tony, but Rhodey as a character is a hell of a lot more than that. He doesnt believe in non-lethal weaponry like Tony does, he often busts out "ends justify the means" rhetoric, and is a grumpy ol' bear a lot of the time.

He would be joining a cast that includes Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Ben Kingsley and Guy Pearce. Shane Black will direct the third installment, scheduled to be released on May 3, 2013.

As we previously reported, the film will be co-produced in China. Filming will start in May in the United States and move to China later this summer.

I am worried, because Marvel.

I think they need an overarching villain like the Mandarin, especially as the end of the trilogy. I'm not sure Extremis is epic enough. I think it would be bitching as the start of a new trilogy (if we were forced to get that many) or as a 4th, stand alone film.

I am just curious how they are going to incorporate everything. Mandarin is the evil hand behind everything to date, or just a new villain? I assume he will have to be behind Extremis as well, because two completely separate plotlines just would not work.

edit: Apparently there was a subsequent Mandarin-Extremis plotline. I guess they could incorporate that with the initial Extremis arc. Hrmmm.

I can see how they can combine both but i just hope they don't make it a clusterfuck of different villains and try to shoehorn in a coherent plot (spiderman 3).

Though the cast of the next addition to the Tony Stark saga is filling up rather quickly with a bevy of notable and formidably talented actors, Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow will not be joining the adventures on this one. The actress told us she would not be appearing in Iron Man 3 at the start of our interview with her and The Hulk himself, Mark Ruffalo, at The Avengers Los Angeles press event last week. Johansson did, however, pitch the idea of a Jason Bourne-esque super hero movie featuring the Black Widow character.

Some follow-up articles have indicated that the role is that of Dr. Maya Hansen, a character responsible for the "Extremis" nanotechnology that is said to be a key part of the sequel's focus.

Looks like Shane Black is putting together a nice little cast for Iron Man 3!

Oh man, they going with the extremis plot line for Iron Man 3? Sounds like a wild ride.

Sam Rockwell owned the screen in that movie.

The crappy sickness plot was the bigger problem. They didn't want to do the alcohol stuff so it the stuff in his chest sickening hm. His degrading health and sanity could have been done so much better. Instead we get a horrible CGI Monaco race and a party scene worse than Bruce's in Batman Begins.
