After AVENGERS ASSEMBLE, any further Marvel adventures are certainly going to be difficult to top, or even match. First up for their ‘Phase II’ set of films will be IRON MAN 3, which will see Robert Downey Jr’s return as billionaire wise-cracker Tony Stark in another high-flying effort, this time written and directed by the great Shane Black.

IRON MAN 3 will see the legendary ‘Extremis virus’ story-arch brought to the screen with villains coming in the shape of Guy Pearce’s Aldrich Killian and Ben Kingsley’s Mandarin. We also have news that the plot will see Stark in Tokyo, ready to suit up in ‘Mark 47’ of the metallic high-tech body armour. An upgrade that allows him to control all previous IRON MAN suits via this one very special outfit.

Just name check that suit number again, ‘Mark 47’. Could this new hardware have anything to do with ITEM 47, the terrific new ‘Marvel One-Shot’ (we have interviews with stars Maximiliano Hernandez and Titus Welliver) that is included with the forthcoming DVD/Blu-ray of AVENGERS ASSEMBLE? I have a feeling the ‘alien’ weapon technology that has the focus on in the short film, Mr. Stark with the help of S.H.I.E.L.D., may just have figured out to utilise and integrate the powers that came from Loki’s villainous army, who were defeated in ‘The Battle Of New York’, with his own.

In the meantime, we have some concept art from IRON MAN 3, (showing suit ‘Mark 47’) which is released in cinemas 26th April 2013.

Craig was our great north east correspondent, proving that it’s so ‘grim up north’ that losing yourself in a world of film is a foregone prerequisite. He has been studying the best (and often worst) of both classic and modern cinema at the University of Life for as long as he can remember. Craig’s favorite films include THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION, JFK, GOODFELLAS, SCARFACE, and most of John Carpenter’s early work, particularly THE THING and HALLOWEEN.
