Remember when the trailer for Iron Man 3 debuted back in October? The two-minute trailer painted a pretty bleak picture for Tony Stark and friends. With Stark talking about making apologies and scenes of his armors getting getting destroyed, along with his mansion, we all got the impression that this is not going to be the fun-loving franchise that we were expected.
It turns out this many not completely be the case. Producer Kevin Feige discussed the tone of the movie with The West Australian:
It's not a serious movie, but we seriously dig into exploring more of Tony. The trick is just trying to make great movies. We try to make them all great, all different and all fresh. What you'll see in Iron Man 3 is some very unique directions that were taken.
It may not be a "serious movie" but will we still get the expected Tony Stark/Robert Downey Jr humor and quips we've seen in the first two films and The Avengers? Getting attacked and having your house and stuff blown up can't leave him in the best mood.
Director Shane Black also mentioned they plan on making the movie "fresh and different" instead of trying to compete with the The Avengers.
We'll have to wait for more information as we count down to the May 3, 2013 release date.
