I have yet to find a person not totally blown away by the latest Iron Man 3 trailer so it was a little surprising to this NerdBastard when news started to hit the Internet that Marvel Studios producer Kevin Feige had taken the time to calm fan fears about the tone of the movie. I certainly wasn’t concerned by the tone of the latest trailer, I was thoroughly hyped up to see such serious action.
Well, somewhere out there, there must be some jittery fans that needed some hand holding because when Feige had the opportunity during his sit down with The West Austrailian, Fiege said:
“It’s not a serious movie, but we seriously dig into exploring more of Tony. The trick is just trying to make great movies. We try to make them all great, all different and all fresh. What you’ll see in Iron Man 3 is some very unique directions that were taken.”
Iron Man 3 Director Shane Black chimed in with:
“We’re not aiming for bigger, necessarily. We’re aiming for different and fresh and new. It’s all about capturing that lightning-in-a-bottle feel, about trying to get as much into this as we can. We’re looking to get a ton of thrills into a short space, to make a nice little stew for you.”
What do you think, would people stay away because of a darker tone in the latest trailer? I’m expecting the next trailer to be all slap stick, pie in the face, comedy now.
Iron Man 3 makes it’s way to theater screens on May 3, 2013.
