Tony Stark Won't Have Avengers Backup In 'IRON MAN 3'

In yet another tidbit of information dropped by Kevin Feige during his informative interview with Collider he revealed a key plot point of Iron Man 3. Tony won't have any of his Avenger pals or even SHIELD to help him out. He'll have to use his wits to get himself out of trouble this time. I'm curious to see what this means for both War Machine and Black Widow since they're still involved in the film. It looks like Marvel's response to the overall mismanagement of Iron Man 2, which was more about everyone else getting screentime while Tony spent half the film doing shit-all. This isn't Avengers 2 excluding a massive amount of new heroes for the sake of Easter Eggs and setting up new films. They honestly sound like they're aiming for a solid action film. Bringing back some of the elements of the first film which included the tension of a powerless Stark in a life-threatening situation surviving only by his charm and engineering skills. There also wasn't much "risk" in the second film which seems like will also be remedied in this movie as well. I hope to see the action set pieces amped up a bit considering the scale was lacking in both final battle scenes.

"Iron Man 3 is a full-on Tony Stark-centric movie—and I’ll tell you because you’re a good guy—is very much inspired by the first half of Iron Man 1. Metaphorically, we’re not going back to the cave there’s nothing like that, but we’ve always said let’s get Tony back to the cave, which is he’s stripped of everything, he’s backed up against a wall, and he’s gotta use his intelligence to get out of it. He can’t call Thor, he can’t call Cap, he can’t call Nick Fury, and he can’t look for the Helicarrier in the sky."
