The film's official plot synopsis reads, "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?"
At the 2012 San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel Studios film producer Kevin Feige spoke about the focus of the film: "This is a very Tony Stark-centric film, meaning not just Tony, but his world with Pepper, with Rhodey. The grand plan with Iron Man 3 is to prove they are just as interesting, if not more so, by themselves as they were when they were all together in The Avengers. So Iron Man 3, by design, is a very serious character study. It's not a serious movie, but seriously dug into exploring more of Tony, of Rhodey, of Pepper, without calling S.H.I.E.L.D. and calling Thor, or 'I think Cap should be here in five minutes,' or any of that fun."
Directed by Shane Black and penned by Drew Pearce, Iron Man 3 stars Robert Downey Jr. Don Cheadle, Ben Kingsley, and Gwyneth Paltrow.
Iron Man 3 releases on May 3, 2013.
