TRAILER: “Iron Man 3” (dir. Shane Black)
"I’m Tony Stark. I build neat stuff, I’ve got a great girl, and occasionally I save the world. So why can’t I sleep?"
While it’s hard to say that we’re in desperate need of some more Tony Stark (dude was everywhere in 2012 thanks to “The Avengers”), to say that we’ve missed writer / director Shane Black would be a massive understatement. The screenwriting superstar responsible for quip-tastic action classics like “Lethal Weapon” and “The Last Boy Scout” revealed himself to be a wildly talented director with 2005′s “Kiss Kiss Bang Bang,” which starred Robert Downey Jr. as a real thief whose brush with Hollywood transforms him into a fake detective, and ultimately paved the way for Downey to become Iron Man. With “Iron Man 3″ it all comes full circle, as Shane Black gets to re-team with the actor in the Marvel film universe which may never have come to pass without them.
Here’s the new full trailer for “Iron Man 3,” which will kick off the summer movie season May 3, and hopefully infuse the snarkiest of superheroes with the joy and purpose that was so sorely missed in Jon Favreau’s last installment.
