Wang Xueqi (Dr. Wu), Gwyneth Paltrow (Pepper Potts) and Don Cheadle (James Rhodes) in this still from Marvel’s Iron Man 3
As "Iron Man 3" has been rolling out its publicity machine, appearing in a handful of stills has been Wang Xuequi, a popular Chinese actor who's otherwise pretty much unknown stateside. Why has he been in there? Well, with the Marvel movie locking Chinese distribution via DMG Entertainment early, they've been eager to try and get a prime release date in the country (which is tricky for U.S. productions), and as such, shot a significant amount of footage in the nation. And they're taking one extra step to ensure Chinese comic fans get something special.

While the Marvel mega merchandising and marketing machine has left no stone unturned, the soundtracks for their film have always been pretty random affairs. Last year's collection of tunes for "The Avengers" was hilariously out of touch with lots of meathead music, while the AC/DC powered tuneage for "Iron Man 2" was particularly uninspired. But it seems that for "Iron Man 3," the comic studio has hired some people who know a thing or two about what the kids want to hear and have pulled together a halfway respectable line up.

Marvel Studios are usually pretty tight-lipped about spoilers in their movies, but recently they've been lifting the veil. Some fans complained recently that Marvel Chief Kevin Feige was revealing too many spoilers, but apparently the honcho said, these media reveals are not spoilers but "bonuses" (now that's a fun spin). Well, if you want to know some of the goods about "Iron Man 3," come on down, but if you'd rather go in blind, beware, spoiler abound.

You might not remember, or perhaps you deleted it from your memory, but circa Marvel's campaign for "Iron Man 2," they dropped a hilariously terrible international poster that basically was a mashup of all the things in the movie. Well, three years on, they haven't deviated from the playbook as a new one-sheet has arrived, and once again, a lowly intern (probably) has cut and pasted a bunch of stuff together.

Terrence Howard Says Marvel Tried To Kill His Career & One-Sided Contract Led To His Exit From 'Iron Man' Series

Ever since it was revealed that Terrence Howard wouldn't be reprising his role in "Iron Man 2," ultimately replaced by Don Cheadle, there has been plenty of ink spilled about why the actor was bounced from the Marvel universe. Way back in 2008, EW reported that circa "Iron Man," it was Howard -- not comeback kid Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow or Jeff Bridges -- who was actually the best paid actor on that set. The first one to sign on, Marvel wasn't able to renegotiate his deal, but perhaps found another workaround. Rumors suggested that Howard was being difficult on set and/or the filmmakers weren't happy with his performance, leading to early drafts for "Iron Man 2" minimizing his participation. So when Marvel circled back to the actor for "Iron Man 2" with a much lower offer than the first movie, well, we'll let Howard take it from here....

So, how good was that "Iron Man 3" trailer earlier today, right? While we might still prefer Drunken Asshole Stark over Insomnia Stark, it looks like writer/director Shane Black has delivered a third entry that will distinctly step away from the first two instalments, going for something grittier, with higher stakes than ever before. And if you're looking for one more reason to watch the trailer, well, you got one now.

Watch the new "Iron Man 3" trailer
After counting it down for the past few days, Marvel has finally lifted the curtain on the new trailer for "Iron Man 3," so strap in and get ready for the ride. And you know what? You probably won't be shocked to learn that this likely won't be Robert Downey Jr.'s or Tony Stark's last ride at the superhero rodeo.

The marketing machine (or should that be the Stark-eting machine?...no? Sorry...) behind “Iron Man 3” is now working at full capacity so expect to be bombarded with little bits and pieces from the Marvel three-quel between now and its April/May release date (and a new trailer next week, fyi). Disney will have high expectations for Shane Black’s take on Tony Stark, and its performance should give us a good gauge of just how much of a boost the $1.5 billion-grossing “The Avengers” will give each of the standalone Marvel movies. With the first two "Iron Man" movies grossing $585 million and $624 million respectively, there’s still the slim possibility that Marvel could have another billion dollar hit on their hands this summer.

We have to admit that if anyone had told us that Pepper Potts would serve as the emotional lynchpin in the "Iron Man" movies before they came out, we wouldn't have believed them. However, thanks to some great chemistry between Gwyneth Paltrow and Robert Downey Jr., and decent writing to go along with it, the pair serve as the best and most fleshed out relationship of any of the Marvel movies. And once again, in the series' third installment, their union is being put to the test.
