Not that he was in the running at all. No, but visually we have a nice crossover mashup of Justin Timberlake’s Suit and Tie with Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man. Not a mashup you would normally jump to, but it’s nice. War Machine makes a nice Jay-Z as well. Sometimes you forget that Tony Stark is a millionaire playboy, but not now. Not with that black and white video and undone bowtie.

Iron Man 3 Succeeds, Despite That One Guy At Work’s Claim That “America’s Pretty Much Over Comic Movies”
Our Box Office Results, from Box Office Mojo
1. Iron Man 3 – $175,300,000
Despite your way too full of himself coworker’s dire predictions, apparently that super hero bubble hasn’t popped yet, with Iron Man 3 getting the second biggest opening weekend of all time, right behind another comic book movie. Still looking pretty good.
2. Pain and Gain – $7,600,000
Shit, Iron Man 3′s sold out? I guess we’ll go see that thing with The Rock.
3. 42 – $6,210,000
Look at all these sheep going to see Iron Man 3. You’d never catch me in a theater for a movie on opening weekend. I like to give the masses time to clear out. Case in point, it’s been about seventy years, so I think I’m probably safe learning about this Jackie Robinson character without having to deal with the unwashed masses.
4. Oblivion – $5,797,000
I hope Tom Cruise gets to see another Superbowl. He seems really interested in that.
5. The Croods – $4,225,000
How are you still in the top five? What sort of person is thinking “Let’s go see that Caveman movie!” at this point?
There are a lot of issues with this trailer that wouldn’t be a problem in America, like the lack of women and black people. This Thai boy band (yes, actually a boy band) looks like they are having lots of fun, especially flying around carrying sparklers and pretending to be Iron Men. They’re so frail and thin, it’s funny on a whole different level. Could use less painted naked Thai men.
I know, it sounds confusing. But see it from Tony’s perspective. He loves Pepper, and he wants to protect her. But the only way he can do that is to build a veritable army of Iron Man suits. Then if he’s ever attacked by a crazy Russian again, he can pop on a dozen suits in a row, and then hop out of them one at a time, like a deadly robotic matryoshka doll. That’s guaranteed to throw any sort of Russian laser whip bad guy off his game.
So Tony will spend all his free time designing suits to protect Pepper. And if that means he had to spend hours each day in a multi-billion dollar man cave, playing with the best toys ever well, that’s just the sacrifice he’s going to make.
There are no words that could improve this. Iron Man is in a tight situation, and he reacts by attacking with the most logical weapon at his disposal. A piano.
Basically, this movie needs to be out today. Like The Amazing Spider-Man and The Avengers before it, about a third of the movie has already been released online. There is a point when you might want to trust in your advertising, instead of just throwing the entire movie online. Leave us something to pay for.
Yes! More mods! Now you can play as a flying Iron Man in…whatever city this is. He’ll shoot missiles from the air. He probably won’t fly horizontally, but you really want him for the missiles he’ll be firing. You can also play as War Machine and, for even more giggles, Stan Lee. I hope he shoots missiles out of his hands.
The morality of Iron Man’s actions has always been murky at best. Obviously what’s he’s doing is illegal, but when the only law force that really has a chance of stopping him spends most of their time trying to recruit him, he pretty much gets a free pass on that one. But the moral issues are a little sketchier. Sure, he’s killing a bunch of folks, but most of them are active combatants, in an actual war. Or they’re someone who’s actively attempting to kill him, and he’s defending himself. Would he be in a situation where he was forced to defend himself with lethal force if he wasn’t running around like a vigilante? Does the fact that they were basically lured into attacking him make the fact that they did attack him any less worthy of punishment? These are the tough philosophical questions.
But none of that really matters. Cause right here, Tony just told everyone he was going to murder a dude. Just basic revenge. He just announced to the world that if you attack a superhero, they can straight up ignore the law and kill you. That’s worrisome. That’s the sort of abuse of powers that turns folks against your crusade. That’s the sort of thing that leads to a Civil War™. Maybe calm down a bit, Tony.
It’s totally flying Sonic the Hedgehog. With lasers. The advantage here is that Iron Man can fly and has lasers. The disadvantage is that it’s still a movie tie-in. At least it doesn’t seem like they shamelessly follow the movie plot with silly smash-em-up gameplay. Promising, as long as we don’t actually see anyone talking. Just be an endless runner.
Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Spider-Man, X-Men, Iron Man are all here. They should consider this instead of that shuffling black and white then red comic thing they have. I like this better if it is a bit long for a movie slug. I just like the circle ripping its shirt off Hulk-style I guess.
Did you enjoy all those previous Iron Man 3 posters? Then wouldn’t you like all the best parts of those posters photoshopped together in one place? Sure you would. Like a Now That’s What I Call Music or Changesone of Iron Man posters we have combined the most important bits of the posters (yes, including the embers, obviously) and jammed them all in one convenient package, excluding all the other nonsense we don’t care about. Crazy Ben Kingsley and Don Cheadle’s patriotic armor and smarmy Guy Pearce and even a couple of those too many Iron Mans. It’s all here. You don’t even have to watch the movie anymore. Just enjoy this poster.
