We've already received a mass of Iron Man 3 goodies. Pictures, trailers, interviews — we've got it all. Yet despite this, there are still many mysteries surrounding Tony Stark's third adventure. recently talked to Entertainment Weekly and revealed some details.

For example, Downey tells us about one particular action scene which looks set to blow the roof off anything else we've seen:

We've just been talking about one sequence – the top-secret name is the Boot/Glove Sequence, I can tell you that, just between you and me – it's where Tony only has one gauntlet and one boot and he has to escape multiple captors. It's really fun, dude. We’re taking everything from his first gauntlet test in the first movie up through the most extreme stuff we thought up for Iron Man 2 and The Avengers and pulling on all of it and making this one big, extended challenge of physics.

We've already seen a bit of concept art for this scene, but hearing about its ambitious direction makes is sound even cooler. Check out the art below:

Downey also went on to tell us more about the return of Rhodey rhodes to the crime fighting duo. It looks like he'll be bringing a completely different set of skills to the team:

Rhodey is much more in the dead center of things. He’s much more dynamic. We’ve made this decision that while Tony is a technical guy, he’s not really a trained guy. There’s a lot of fun to be had with Don because he’s really good with hardware and he’s a martial artist, so it’s been really fun exploiting this possibility of Tony having moments like the one in Avengers, like the one with Cap where he decides, “Oh screw it, he probably knows what he’s doing.” So there’s a lot of that and a lot more fun and a lot more depth to Rhodey this time around.

All-in-all, Iron Man's confrontation with the Mandarian is starting to look like the most explosive yet.

Are you happy to see Rhodey taking on more a central role? Let us know below!
