‘Iron Man 3’ Will Not Be A Serious Movie?

Superherohype is saying that Kevin Feige, Robert Downey, Jr., and Shane Black, the director of the film, are saying that the upcoming “Iron Man 3” will not be a “serious” movie.  Feige, Downey and Black are closer to the production than I am (by an almost indescribable degree), so I think that we can take their words as gospel, but I reading various quotes from the three men, makes me wonder if they have ever seen the trailer.

In an earlier post I called it “The Dark Knight Of The Iron Man.”  There must be some serious belly laughs yet to be revealed, because it was a lot of things, though funny (or even light-hearted) was not among them.

That being said, Shane Black has been known on occasion to mix relatively dark, situational humor into his films (particularly “Kiss, Kiss, Bang, Bang”) though the ‘Lethal Weapon’ series of films, which he wrote, also show it, to varying degrees.
