Iron Man 2

Story by Jack Foley

MARVEL Studios has revealed the plot for Iron Man 3, which is due for release on May 13, 2013.

The synopsis reads 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?”

All clear? Well, maybe not. But it’s a start.

Iron Man 3 will once again feature Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man and Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts. It is being directed by Shane Black, who worked with Downey on Kiss Kiss Bang Bang.
