Blimey! Iron Man 3 looks a bit dark, doesn’t it?

Okay, so it’s reputedly based on Warren Ellis’s Extremis, so it was always going to be a bit dark, but it looks like they’ve really gone for it. At the very least, it should be better than Iron Man 2, despite the absence of Scarlett Johansson, but could that lack of trademark Marvel fun be a really killer at the box office, despite The Avengers‘ recent success? What do you think?
