Iron Man 3 Will Not Star the Avengers

Iron ManIron Man 3 will see the superhero "cut off" from The Avengers world. The comic book movie sees Robert Downey Jr. reprise his role as industrialist Tony Stark and his metal-clad alter-ego following the The Avengers film and the plot will see the hero having to survive on his own.

"Iron Man 3 has been structured specifically to be the antidote to The Avengers ... Circumstances in the story separate Tony from having access to anything. We wanted to take Tony back to, metaphorically speaking, the cave from Iron Man, the first half of Iron Man, when he's cut off from the world and needs just focus on his intellects to get himself out of his situation," Marvel Studios President of Production Kevin Feige said, speaking in Empire magazine's latest podcast.

Kevin also revealed the other characters from The Avengers squad - which include Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Captain America (Chris Evans) and Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) - will not feature in the sequel: "In the film he (Iron Man) is not calling Thor, he's not calling Captain America, he can't press a special button to have the helicarrier come rescue him, so I think that'll be a nice complement to the team up of The Avengers."

Ben Kingsley to Star in Iron Man 3

Ben KingsleyBen Kingsley is to appear in Iron Man 3. The Hugo actor is in final negotiations to star in the forthcoming Marvel blockbuster as an enemy of Tony Stark/Iron Man - played by Robert Downey Jr. - though the exact details of the character are being kept under wraps.

Variety, however, reports the villain is expected involved in the spread of a virus through nanobots because the film is believed to be loosely based on the 2005 Extremis comicbook series. News of the story arc may disappoint some fans as it had previously been speculated the next movie in the series would see the titular character take on his original archenemy the Mandarin, a wealthy Chinese scientist and martial arts exert who backed the warlord who imprisoned Stark.

Jon Favreau - who directed the first two films in the franchise - had previously expressed an interest in exploring the character, but he has moved on from the series, with Shane Black at the helm of Iron Man 3. Shane is also co-writing the script with Drew Pearce.

Robert Downey Jr. and Jon Favreau Talk Iron Man 2

Friends and co-workers Favreau and Downey discuss future projects

UPDATE: Thanks to one of those smarter people who actually brought a camera, The Game Jerk has posted a video of the Q&A that you can check out after the jump.

Although I have continuously kicked myself repeatedly for not bringing a camera last night, I was still at least able to mentally hold on to the great moments witnessed last night at a special screening of Iron Man. While the director was already scheduled to appear for a live commentary at Santa Monica’s Aero Theater, fans of Marvel’s first self-financed film were in for an even better treat when Tony Stark himself, Robert Downey Jr., showed up at the last moment.

Because of the fact that he had not recorded a commentary for the upcoming DVD, director Jon Favreau was quite exuberant over the fact that he was able to do so in person (also because he was not obligated to be politically correct).
