So far, Iron Man 3 has revealed most of its cast, the story it’s based off of, and showed off some sweet set pics. Yet we still have no idea what to expect. We aren’t sure who exactly Kingsley is going to play. Though most fans expect him to play Mandarin, we still have no idea. Any way, Marvel hopes to raise expectations for the movie by hosting a Kid’s Costume Party this weekend at San Diego Comic-Con. Hosting an event like this not only gets kids pumped for the 2013 release of Iron Man 3, but it gets adults back on the track of thinking Iron Man, especially while Dark Knight Rises is soon to be the only thing on their minds. The thing I’m curious about is if Robert Downey Jr. is going to personally sign these…I doubt it but that would be a pretty cool surprise.
