    @crypt Yeah, i know what you mean. I've watched special features of movies on blu-ray before, meaning movies that have alot of special effects and visual effects in them. It can take a really long time to put something on screen in a movie the way they intend it to look on screen.

    @themoviefanatic Yeah, definitely. I have recently been studying/experimenting with special effects and it takes a long time to create something fairly simple.

    @crypt Yes, probably. I was recently thinking that it probably will.

    @zeus That sounds like a good enough running time to me. The first two iron man movies are around that long as well.

    @themoviefanatic Maybe it requires more special effects than the previous two.

    If it will only be with his character, and they already filmed the major parts, it won't take too long. Then again, nobody really gives a damn

    @sean It is the final showdown I'd guess were looking at 2hrs 5mins. That's my guess anyway. I'm sure they won't have much filming to do in China, leaving the short shoots till last. @Roberto-Mata

    @Roberto-Mata Yeah, it will be interesting to see what Iron Man 3's running time will be. I am curious to know what it will be.

    Wow, this movie is taking a lot of time to make, even more than The Avengers, and that says a lot, I think the running time for the film is big, there are a lot of characters, most of them new, if Kevin Feige says it won't be a Serious film, then he is mistaking.
