Just kidding about the werewolves thing — that would've been bullshizz wouldn't it??
For real, though, we have the official plot synopsis from the studio here for Robert Downey Jr.'s fourth outing (third solo movie) as Iron Man!
We're actually super pumped for this one because of Shane Black's involvement, and we allllll know what happened when Shane and RDJ got together. You know, for Kiss Kiss Bang Bang!
Magic… magic happened! Ha!
Here's the official synopsis IN FULL:
Marvel Studios’ Iron Man 3 pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?
Starring Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Stephanie Szostak, James Badge Dale with Jon Favreau and Ben Kingsley, Iron Man 3 is directed by Shane Black from a screenplay by Drew Pearce and Shane Black and is based on Marvel’s iconic Super Hero Iron Man, who first appeared on the pages of Tales of Suspense (#39) in 1963 and had his solo comic book debut with The Invincible Iron Man (#1) in May of 1968.
We know the word gets thrown around a lot, but we hope this one is a bit darker in tone than the last one. They haven't really spent a lot of time on Tony Stark's alcoholism yet, so we'd really like to see something about that!
The first trailer drops on October 23rd — are U ready??
