The storyline is being described by writer-director Shane Black as being a Tom Clancy-thriller, with Iron Man fighting real world villains. Black stated, “the studio wasn't happy with the result of Iron Man 2, a result that pretty much came about due to a rushed production schedule in an attempt to hit a release date rather than simply make a good film, but I digress. Iron Man 3 will not be another, 'two men in iron suits fighting each other' ".
Would Iron Man engaging in another round with Islamists (as he did in the first film) be too much to ask?
Let's just hope Stark's unabashed love of country and capitalism continue.
People are also being a little hard on "Iron Man 2." Granted, the action fell short, but the themes explored were pure pleasure.
Stark publicly thumbing his nose at a federal government demanding he turn over his weapons?
What's not to love?
