Walt Disney Studios and Marvel Studios have provided us with the first official teaser poster for Iron Man 3 which will be in theaters beginning May 3, 2013. The teaser poster comes in advance of the first official trailer which will be released domestically via iTunes at midnight tonight PT/3 am ET.
In Marvel’s Iron Man 3, brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man played by Robert Downey Jr., is pitted 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?

It’s been months since we shared the news that The Muppet Christmas Carol will be finding its way onto Disney Blu-ray on November 6 with very few details to go on due to a lack of an official press release. Today that has changed — a little.

Oops! With all the recent hubbub over Walt Disney Studios’ slate shuffle and the announcement that Iron Man 3 will be available in both Digital 3D and RealD, not to mention the official synopsis for Thor: The Dark World, we neglected to notice we were sitting on the synopsis for Iron Man 3 as well. Surprisingly, a few Google searches revealed that it’s only been published on an extreme few international sites, so without further ado, we present to you the full synopsis for Iron Man 3 courtesy of Walt Disney Studios, Marvel Studios, Paramount Pictures and DMG Entertainment:
Walt Disney Animation Studios has released a new clip from its upcoming film, Wreck-It Ralph, titled ‘Bad Guys Second Thoughts.’ In the clip, Ralph shares his aspirations to overcome the hurdle as being known as the ‘bad guy’ and his desire to achieve recognition and a medal at the local Bad-Anon meeting. The news leads to worries that Ralph may be ‘going Turbo’ by wishing to play cards beyond those that were dealt to him.
After a brief lecture from Clyde of Pac-Man fame, the meeting adjourns with the daily bad guy affirmation: I’m bad and that’s good. I will never be good and that’s not bad. There is noone I’d rather be than me.
Walt Disney Animation Studios has provided us with several new hi-res stills and concept art from its upcoming film, Wreck-It Ralph. The new images have been added to the beginning of their respective galleries below. Some of these images may have been seen elsewhere before but as we have just received them, we’ve added them to complete our libraries.
