Robert Downey Jr. Says 'Iron Man 3,' Could Be Best of Three Films, Jaimie Alexander Back for 'Thor 2'

Robert Downey Jr. Says 'Iron Man 3,' Could Be Best of Three Films, Jaimie Alexander Back for 'Thor 2'

 Lost amid the hype of the upcoming Avengers movie, as well as The Dark Knight Rises from that other major comic book company (DC Comics), is the fact that Iron Man 3D is glacially moving toward filming.

Most will agree that while Iron Man 2 was heavy on action, it was ultimately a louder, empty shadow of the first movie with a much less intimidating villain.
 
Downey, however, seems really upbeat and optimistic about this third Iron Man movie, which will reunite him with Kiss Kiss Bang Bang writer/director Shane Black.
 
"I think that we have an opportunity with the third Iron Man to make the best of the three and maybe one of the better superhero movies that's ever been made."
 
He then took the next step to charm you, yes, you, the movie-goer by saying, "I think we have to remember what made the first one good. It was very character driven. It was very odd. It was kind of outrageous. And so I think we have to have the courage to trust that the audience is really kind of cool, and smart."
 
Thanks, Iron Man!
 
Iron Man 3 is slated to hit theaters May 3, 2013.
 
 
Speaking of Marvel sequels, Jaimie Alexander, otherwise known as Asgardian warrior Lady Sif from Thor, confirmed that, as per her contract, she will return for the sequel. She also confirmed that Game of Thrones director Alan Taylor will be directing.
 
Of more importance though is how her character fits in the sequel. A self-professed comic book geek, Alexander says she's curious to see if, as in the comics, the romance between Sif and Thor blossoms more.
 
With the script currently being revised by Saving Private Ryan writer Robert Rodat, Alexander couldn't speak to what story elements or developments would be seen in the sequel.Thor 2 is scheduled to be released November 15, 2013.
