MARVEL CINEMATIC UNIVERSE PHASE TWO BEGINS!
Iron Man 3 looks incredible! Hopefully we get a final battle that erases the awful memory of Whiplash’s instant and lackluster defeat in Iron Man 2. The first trailer makes one thing perfectly clear: This is going to be a much darker Iron Man than we’re used to. Personally, I hope the entire Marvel Universe takes a darker tone in Phase 2. Thanos awaits!
But first we have a trailer to dissect:
My top 5 favorite moments:
5. Exploding Iron Man Suits
It’s awesome seeing all the suits lined up like that… So why blow them up!?
4. Tony Stark vs Iron Man?
If this film follows the Extremis storyline is this suit operating on it’s own before Tony can perfect the technology? Or is someone else wearing the suit and waking up Pepper… Did they blow up the other suits?
Side note: I didn’t like the new suit design at all when they released a still months back. Well… I changed my mind. It looks pretty sweet in motion.
3. The Mandarin Emerges
Welcome to the Marvel Cinematic Universe Ben Kingsley!
2. New York & The Pose
“Everything’s changed since New York…”
It’s going to be so much fun catching all the references in these movies now. They aren’t just forgetting that Aliens invaded our world and nearly destroyed New York. It had a massive impact on Tony Stark and presumably the rest of The Avengers.
Then the trailer shows this pose and suddenly, I remembered just how awesome the first Iron Man was. These heroes will have no trouble carrying movies by themselves.
1. Stark Mansion No More
They are really going to beat the crap out of Tony Stark in this movie. Iron Man vs Mandarin. Let’s do this.
What’s your favorite moment?
