News: Iron Man 3 Concept Art And A Few Words From Robert Downey Jr.

Director Shane Black and Robert Downey Jr. might be busy filming Iron Man 3 in North Carolina but that won’t stop the film having a panel at San Diego Comic Con. Will we see some brief footage? Let’s hope. In the meantime a piece of concept art has been released showing RDJ’s Tony Stark in a compromising situation.

The new Iron Man film is said to be based on Extremis by Warren Ellis where Stark develops nanobot technology that bonds with him and allows him to transform into Iron Man whenever he wants. There’s been a lot of speculation over the pic above. Does the mist around Stark show the nanobots building his armour to escape the gun-wielding enemies? Could be. Me, I haven’t a different take. We’ve heard rumours that Guy Pearce’s character, Aldrich Killian, develops the Extremis nano-technology to combat Stark’s armour. Stark claimed in Iron Man 2 that he was twenty years in advance of any other technology in the world so it would be interesting if he suddenly found himself behind the technological curve. To that end, I think the pic shows Stark’s armour being dissolved by the Extremis nanobots and being left exposed to his enemies.

I have nothing to back up my theory, but Robert Downey Jr had a couple of interesting things to say about the new film – “I radically wans to challenge Stark’s identity, rather than just have him battle another bad guy.” and speaking of the final act he says – “These things tend to, in Act 3, really become about the same old things. So let’s really flip that. I feel like I don’t know where you go after Iron Man 3. Leave it all on the field, you know?”

This is the last Marvel film Downey Jr. contracted to, so could we be saying farewell to the man who helped make Tony Stark an A-list superhero? There’s the distinct possibility.

Iron Man 3 is released in the UK on the 26th April 2013 and the US on 3rd May 2013.
