‘Iron Man 3’ to follow ‘Thor’ and ‘Avengers’ film, set for 2013

“Iron Man 3” already as a release day of May 3, 2013.

Jon Favreau discussed the plans with MTV while editing “Cowboys and Aliens” saying: “I don’t know a lot about ‘Thor…I’ve talked to [‘Thor’ director] Kenneth Branagh. I’ve met the cast members. I had a conversation with [‘Avengers’ director Joss Whedon] in passing, giving him my two cents about the film.”

The Marel Unierse is coming to the big screen in big ways and Favreau admitted he hadn’t seen the script for “Avengers”:

“In theory, ‘Iron Man 3’ is going to be a sequel or continuation of ‘Thor,’ ‘Hulk,’ ‘Captain America’ and ‘Avengers,'” he said. “This whole world… I have no idea what it is. I don’t think they do either, from conversations I’ve had with those guys.”

“Honestly, right now ‘Captain America’ and ‘Thor’ are their big priorities, and you learn things by shooting and making movies,” Favreau explained. “The script is one thing, but when you actually see what you land on at the editing room — especially with Marvel where they film, cut, film some more and shape the film — you really learn as you go.”

Other reports have Favreau announcing the villain will be the Mandarin.

“You’ve got to do the Mandarin. The problem with the Mandarin is that the way it’s depicted in the comic books, you don’t want to see that. He has 10 magical rings — that just doesn’t feel right for our franchise. So it’s either tech-based, or the rings are not really rings. But maybe with ‘Thor’ and all those others, you’ll introduce magic to that world and it won’t seem so out of place.”
