Looks like a change of director in the ’verse of Iron Man – Jon Favreau is out, Shane Black is in – has translated into a change of tone for the franchise.
’Cause things look like they’re getting real for Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark in next April’s Iron Man 3.
His demons are more tangible (courtesy of the events of The Avengers), the stakes are higher (seems like Ben Kingsley’s bad guy is literally hitting home), and his one true love Pepper Potts (my girl Gwyneth Paltrow) is totally in a dicey situation unlike any she’s found herself in before.
Check. Out. The trailer, people. And let’s hope the guy “can protect the one thing I can’t live without.”
