Storyline

Marvel's "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? Written by Jawadjee

Trivia

Producer Kevin Feige described this movie's core theme as a love story: "The love triangle in this movie is between Tony, Pepper, and his obsession with those suits, and the obsession with technology. Yes, there's a bad guy. Yes, the stakes are very very high. But the real stakes are, is Tony going to be able to set aside spending every day in that workshop tinkering with the suits, in order to focus on Pepper, the one thing that matters most?" See more »

Goofs

When Tony and Rhody are in the restaurant, Tony said "Einstein slept three hours a year. Look what he did." While this is most likely a joke, Albert Einstein actually slept, regularly, 10 hours a night. This, along with daily naps, he slept more than the average person. See more »

Quotes

Tony Stark: [Narrates] A famous man once said, 'We create our own demons.' Who said that? What does that even mean? Doesn't matter. I said it 'cause he said it. So now, he was famous and that basically getting said by two well-known guys. I don't, uh... I'm gonna start again.
