Disney and Marvel have released new information regarding what we can expect from Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World.
Judging from the Iron Man 3 synopsis, it looks like the focus will be more on Tony Stark’s personal journey. We do get some idea on how the villains (perhaps the Mandarin?) will play a hand in ruining Stark’s life.
Iron Man 3 Synopsis:
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?
