20. 'Iron Man 3'
In Theaters: Friday, May 3, 2013
Director: Shane Black
Cast: Robert Downey Jr, Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Ben Kingsley, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall
Why we're excited: It's a little hard not to be amped up for what Marvel has in store for what it calls "Phase Two." The seeds of that have been planted and the first step into that territory will be "Iron Man 3." The first sequel in the franchise that started it all for the comic studio may have been a whiff, but this one looks promising and could sport just the right edge. Ben Kingsley as the Mandarin? Count us in.
