First Iron Man 3 Plot Synopsis Released

As Phase One of the Marvel Cinematic Universe finally begins to cool, the trickling of news and production towards Phase Two means that we shall soon be blessed with the first trailer for the first step of the new wave of Marvel cinematic goodness: Iron Man 3.

Ahead of that however is the release of the plot synopsis for the movie, currently dated for release next year in UK cinemas on the 26th of April. Albeit vague on the content of the film, Screen Rant reports the synopsis as follows:

Marvel Studios’ Iron Man 3 pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?

Starring Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Stephanie Szostak, James Badge Dale with Jon Favreau and Ben Kingsley, Iron Man 3 is directed by Shane Black from a screenplay by Drew Pearce and Shane Black and is based on Marvel’s iconic Super Hero Iron Man, who first appeared on the pages of Tales of Suspense (#39) in 1963 and had his solo comic book debut with The Invincible Iron Man (#1) in May of 1968.

We will learn more about the movie in time, with the upcoming trailer just around the corner. There has been many a rumour about what direction it will take and how it will build on the second phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Some sources such as Screen Rant have put forward theories such as Iron Man 3 incorporating elements from the Extremis storyline from the comics – a storyline that involves nanobots meant to replicate that of the serum used to create Captain America, ultimately leading Tony Stark to contemplate choices that may certainly make him more than a “Big man in a suit of armour.”

Only time will tell when theories are confirmed or denied, all that is for certain is that the next wave of movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe are going to be fantastic coming off of Avengers Assemble, getting bigger and better until we see what becomes of the next team-up of The Avengers.

Iron Man 3 is set for a 26 April 2013 release in the UK and stars Robert Downey, Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow and Don Cheadle. Shane Black directs the film, from a screenplay co-written by himself and Drew Pearce.
