New Iron Man 3 Featurette

The cast talk up the movie...

As we creep closer to the release of Iron Man 3, the promo blitz reaches its peak. Today at least offers something a little different, with the cast chatting about the movie and talking about how it’s both continuing the work of the first two films (and that Avengers movie) while also doing something new with Tony and co. We’d warn there are possible spoilers here…

Most intriguingly, we’re finally hearing properly from Guy Pearce as Aldrich Killian, a scientist who appears to be ready to cause trouble for Tony (and who seems intent on putting the moves on Gwyneth Paltrow’s Pepper). He’s barely featured in previous trailers and promos, so it’s good to get a proper look at what he’s up to, without really spoiling what he does in the film.

And it’s always fun to hear from Jon Favreau, who, freed from the responsibility of directing this one, returns to perform as Happy Hogan. Looks like things aren’t exactly peachy between Happy and his former boss…

Iron Man 3, which finds Robert Downey Jr’s Tony Stark and those around him under attack from Ben Kingsley’s terror-happy Mandarin, is set to arrive on April 25. If you've yet to see it, take a look at the latest trailer below.
