These new stills from Iron Man 3 give us our first look at Rebecca Hall

Nov. 29, 2012by: Niki Stephens

After the first trailer for IRON MAN 3 was released, I was a little surprised at the mixed reaction I was seeing. For all those who said "meh" there was never an actual response for why they were underwhelmed. I thought it was rather strong. The biggest issue with Tony in previous installments (though I realize this could be debatable) was the dismissal of the character's depression. Stark goes to a dark place mentally, and while I don't think that an entire movie should be made of it, I think that it deserves more attention than it has received. Maybe IRON MAN 3 won't cover that, but it does look like it will delve deeper into his pain, what inflicts that is a different story. Also, before you even try to mention it, no I am not talking about a "dark" or "edgy" anything compared to TDK.

That said, I think that Shane Black will deliver a great third installment. So on to the new stills! Most importantly we get our first look at Rebecca Hall as Dr. Maya Hansen. She is being described as the perfect match for Tony. Also, check out that hot Iron Patriot shot.

No reason for "meh"?

How about - how exciting can Iron Man be underwater? Little Mermaid was cool, but hey it is what it is. I for one am still pumped for the flick.

"dark or edgy"

but....it does look dark and edgy like The Dark Knight. And it's not just the Nolan camp that's saying that, from the reactions I've seen, a lot of people agree with that. And that's not necessarily a bad thing. For Marvel films, that's a new direction in this MCU. It really does look like it's going to be the best Iron Man so far. I don't get why "Marvelites" (not trying to use that in a bad way) are so quick to distance themselves from anything Nolan/Batman-related

Yeah, you know, because people just did not make dark and edgy movies before Nolan. It's not like Shane Black has been writing dark, edgy & witty material since the 80s or anything.

Fair point, but we're talking about comic book movies. What's the most recent and most famous, and probably most game-changing example of a dark and edgy cbm? Hands down, you gotta tip your hat to Nolan. The thing is, and I get we've only seen maybe 2 minutes of footage so far, but Iron Man 3 looks soo much like both tdk AND tdkr. I wont get into all the similarities now, but it's quite a list. But what I was originally getting at is people have developed a knee-jerk reaction of staying away

I only brought that up because the author went out of their way to do so. As if they're saying, "Please don't compare this to Nolan, anyone but him!" Just seems odd to me

The Crow is perhaps the darkest & edgiest comic book film out there.

Singer's X-Men films were dark, and grounded themselves in a very realistic world. In fact I always thought that Nolan was following Singer's example by stripping away the comic book element as much as possible.

Iron Man 3 looks to be doing the opposite. It looks like it is embracing the comic book elements, even more so than the previous Iron Man movies. This is something The Avengers unapologetically did, and Iron Man

What's odd to me is that anything which is dark is automatically compared to Nolan. It's like no other movies existed before him. That gets very annoying very fast. Truth is, people have very short attention spans and can only seem to remember the past few years of movies.

I honestly fail to see what Nolan did that was so new. I enjoyed his first two Batman films, but to call his films revolutionary or game changing is just hyperbole.

There was a more recent article with Shane Black talking about the tone of the film, and he said it's not as dark as it looks, still very much in the tone of iron man.

War Machine looks like a cartoon in that picture.

That's Iron Patriot. A character in the comics which was half Iron Man half Captain America.

I'm still puzzled why the new War Machine suit's chest plate is shape in square. Why not make the whole star glow?

I agree.

Perhaps they think it might resemble Captain America too much if the whole star should glow. But I still think it's odd that it's a square shape that glows.

Can't wait for this film. Will no doubt be the best Iron Man out of the three.
