The Man That Irons

Not necessarily the man of steel even though he wears suits of steel but meh; close enough. I recently watched Iron Man 3 and since there is so much buzz going around about this movie I figured I would make a little post about its awesomeness. So consider this a synopsis or review I guess. For those that don't know two small disclaimers: potential spoilers ahead and no this is not a movie about a sexy man who irons ladies so don't get your panties in a bunch.

Iron Man 3 (stylized onscreen as Iron Man Three) is a 2013 American superhero film featuring the Marvel Comics character Iron Man, produced by Kevin Feige of Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. It is the sequel to Iron Man and Iron Man 2, and the seventh installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, being the first major release in the franchise since the crossover film The Avengers. Iron Man 3 starts off with Tony Stark recalling a New Years Eve party in 1999 with scientist Maya Hansen, inventor of Extremis - an experimental regenerative treatment intended to allow recovery from crippling injuries. Disabled scientist Aldrich Killian offers them a place in his company Advanced Idea Mechanics, but is turned down. This sets up the major plot point of the movie to come later on so try to remember that. For those that may not be up to date on where the trilogy is you can check this out to get up to speed if you haven't already:

One would imagine this movie to be a hardcore action superhero based movie but honestly I found it to be more of a comedy than a hard core action movie. Now don't get me wrong there is definitely action and plenty of it too but more comedy comes out from the dialog and interactions of the cast. This final installment of the Iron Man series definitely does an excellent job of closing out the trilogy following akin in the footsteps of the Dark Knight trilogy where the primary focus is on the man behind the superhero and how he copes and deals with his inner demons. This movie gave a very introspective look into the Tony Stark character and focused less on the imagery of his Iron Man persona. Now granted this movie is epic and you should most definitely go check it out this wouldn't be the internet if somehow somewhere someone found fault with this movie. That award belongs to many of the hardcore comic book fans out there as many were both disappointed with the major plot twist concerning the Mandarin as well as the comedic nature of sorts that the movie took on. Sadly you can't please everyone but seemingly you can please the majority as Iron Man 3 as of writing this movie has the No. 2 North American opening of all time, after another film that featured Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark – last summer's "The Avengers," which took in $207.4 million. With that being said you should go watch this movie; I tried to write this with as minimal spoilers as possible so don't let my hard work go to waste; screw it, we get to see Pepper Potts wear and use an Iron Man suit and it was so epic.

It was an excellent comedy and an ok action movie,you forgot to mention that this could also be a sequel to the avengers since they make references to the battle in New York ( where the avengers had the final fight). The chemistry between the kid and stark was gold, the mandarin twist was epic for me lmao. One thing i will say is, don't waste your time with the post credit scene, it's a let down and has no real purpose.
