During a recent intervew with MTV, Marvel's Kevin Feige gave an update on Iron Man 3. He talked about Robert Downey Jr.'s performance and character development, the Mandarin, and director Shane Black.

"Robert Downey Jr. gave his all to this performance. He left no stone unturned."

Feige goes on to say:

"So much of the journey of 'Iron Man 3' is informed by Tony's experiences in 'The Avengers. It's almost like post-traumatic stress: he really has retreated after the events of 'The Avengers' into his workshop, where he's building advanced versions of his suits. He has [designed] a version of the suit that can latch onto him in individual pieces ... anytime, anywhere. As he starts to realize, it's basically because he doesn't want to be out of the suit: he's seen a lot of things in 'Avengers' and has encountered a lot of powerful people, much more powerful than he is. »
