Perhaps the biggest complaint from fanboys about the delightful Iron Man 3 was that Ben Kingsley's character The Mandarin was not given as much respect as he was shown in the comic books. Spoiler: In IM3 Kingsley was actually Trevor Slattery, an actor hired to act as the face of someone else's wrongdoing. But in the new Marvel One Shot All Hail the King, that idea...

Iron Man 3 is set to open this Friday, but the cast already knew they had a winning hand.

IRON MAN 3
Returning after the event of The Avengers, Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark has a solo adventure in Iron Man 3, which proves to be the best of the franchise, and one of the best Marvel movies yet. If it works, it's partly because writer/director Shane Black understands the genre and good filmmaking, giving fun scenes and great stakes to this...

Iron Man 3’s new, full trailer (courtesy of Yahoo! Movies) doesn’t exactly add much to what we’ve already seen from previous clips, teasers, commercials, and trailers—Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) appears to be suffering from some sort of posttraumatic stress following the climactic events that took place in New York at the end of The Avengers, the Iron Patriot is...

So far, in the Iron Man 3 poster department, we’ve had Tony Stark doing his upside down Steve Perry-from-Journey impression, a heavily-photoshopped Don Cheadle, and we’ve had Guy Pearce basically staring at some stuff.  Not exactly the most compelling one-sheets, to be sure.  But now we have this—Sir Ben Kingsley as the film’s villain, Mandarin.

Despite reports to the contrary, the first trailer for the upcoming Iron Man 3 pitched the film as a dark and heavy film, far removed from the glib tone of the great first film and the absolutely not-great second film.  With a new director (Shane Black) and villain (Ben Kingsley's Mandarin), the film seems poised to right the course of the franchise,...
