Iron Man 3 Cometh!
So, what are you planning on doing May 3, 2013? On or about that day, unless I’ve gone to a preview, I’ll probably be seeing Iron Man 3.
If that seems like a long time, it’s only a year (almost to the day) after Iron Man and Tony Stark appear in The Avengers movie.
Amusingly, Disney will be distributing both movies. Whereas they own Marvel, the distribution rights on these projects is still in Paramount’s hands so, according to Box Office Mojo, Disney is coughing up at least $115 million to assume the privilege. It wasn’t too long ago that you could buy all of Marvel for that kind of money. Paramount maintains distribution rights to this year’s Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger.
No word about cast and villains, although Robert Downey Jr. is contractually expected to repeat in the lead.
