New ‘Iron Man 3′ Set Photos: Tony Stark Flies to the Rescue

Published 3 years ago by , Updated May 3rd, 2014 at 7:40 am,

The photos that have been snapped on the Iron Man 3 set have, on the whole, hinted at a a lot of problems for Tony Stark in this threequel. Without spoiling anything, we’ve seen former Iron Man friends being given a fresh makeover, as well as set equipment that indicated – before it was confirmed by concept art and  Comic-Con 2012 footage – that Stark’s Malibu home was going to be undergoing some pretty destructive renovation when the bad guys came calling.

Today we have new Iron Man 3 set photos, and they seem to indicate that the criminal organization Tony is up against will be wreaking havoc all over the place – even in the sky. scroll down if you want to know more – but be warned POTENTIAL SPOILERS FOLLOW!!!

These photos seem to capture a scene in which Iron Man is flying through the air carrying a bunch of people he’s saved – people in business suits, military uniforms and airline personnel outfits. This suggests that some important airborne object – Latino Review is speculating it could even be Air Force One – will be under attack by the now-confirmed Mandarin’s (Ben Kingsley) forces, which will include cybernetically enhanced henchmen played by James Bade Dale and Ashley Hamilton.

Check out the images below:

The Iron Man 3 Comic-Con 2012 panel has shown us that director Shane Black definitely has something different in mind for the threequel; early rumors we heard that it would be something more akin to a high-concept espionage film, rather than a standard superhero film, seem to be accurate in the best way possible. We say all that to say: feel free to set the bar of expectation high for this Marvel movie.

Iron Man 3 will in theaters on May 3, 2013.

  1. It was mentioned in the talk about Captain America: The Winter Soldier that it too would be more akin to an espionage thriller type film. A coincidence, or just a decision to go with a different feel? I like that they can take each entry and have a different style. Hopefully Ant-Man will be more humor-based, but still in line with the established Marvel universe.

    • Well, Brubaker’s story arcs in the comics have always had an espionage/thriller feel to them. So IMO, espionage has always been a big part of the Captain America “world”.
      And seeing as Winter Soldier will be involved with the sequel, it just makes more sense…

      I don’t really know how IM3 is going to pull of the “espionage thriller” thing though… it’ll be interesting to see for sure.

      • i can see im3 pulling off espioange thriller thing because when i saw IM Exemtris movie the cyborg infected with the virus was a anti-goverment patroit. he sought revenge against the u.s. government for killing his family when he was a kid.

  2. Also, whoever is the stuntwoman hanging upside down must have drawn the short straw that day.

    • Not to worry, I bet it’s rigged to only go pg-13 high on the thigh… ;-)

  3. Kinda confusing as to why they are hanging there like that. Any thoughts?

  4. That looks… odd.
    In reality there’s no way one person’s arm would be able to handle the strain of so many bodies.

    • It looks a little cartoonish right now, but I’m sure we don’t know the context of these pictures. It appears that ol’ Metalhead is carrying a literal chain of people away from somewhere. Iron Man wouldn’t have a problem carrying them, but it’s the first guy in the chain who should not be able to hold on.

    • Marvel plays real loose with reaity anyways. BW arms would of ripped off when Evans launched her in the air to commandeer the hover pads in The Avengers. Its a Marcel Studios movie. No big deal.

  5. It looks like they’re using some kind of motion capture to film Iron Man’s body and then use CGI to draw the suit.

  6. Any word yet if Tony Leung is indeed replacing Andy Lau?

    • Yes. He is wearing a rubber muscle suit.

  7. I have to agree with Avenger, it’s a cool idea but unless these people have extremis in their bodies I don’t see how the higher ups could realistically hold. Shane…….. ju got son spleyning to do.

  8. Sounfs like phase 2 of the Marvel cinematic universe is all about grounding their stories in a ” real world”. Good plan , things could get cheesy really quick if they aren’t careful. Love what I’ve seen from Marvel do far and I am expecting it to continue !!

  9. Marvel’s flying circus.
