Marvel rolls out ‘Iron Man 3’ holiday promo as Robert Downey Jr says film is ‘grittier’ and Mandarin is ‘terrifying’

A new promo photo for “Iron Man 3” and star Robert Downey Jr. discussing the film on Wednesday with British magazine Nuts, both paint a darker and “grittier” film that the first two.

Reunited with “Kiss Kiss Bang Bang” director, Shane Black, Downey Jr. says Black brings the different tone.

“I think Shane’s gone for a dark feel in this movie. It’s a lot grittier and goes back to its comic-book roots. It’s shaped into a really special movie – and Shane as been instrument in that.”

The “Chaplin” star says he still prefers to do his own stunts, but mentions how difficult that can become.

“I’ve always said that while I’m physically able, I want to do all my own stunts in the movies that I make. I want the audience to sit there, thinking, ‘was he really stupid enough to attempt that?’ I actually hurt my ankle in a stunt and filming was shut down for a few days.”

The ‘Happy Holidays from Tony Stark’ promo photo adds some flair to the Marvel promotional department. Now comes the task of introducing a major villain in “Iron Man 3” – Mandarin, played by Ben Kingsley.

“I always think there’s something more terrifying about a villain who’s a genius, as opposed to just relying on strength or ability. We all know what a fantastic actor Ben Kingsley is, and he pulls off the evil genius with real terrifying results.”

“Iron Man 3” hits theaters May 3, 2013.
