WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - What can fans expect when they head to theaters to see locally-filmed Iron Man 3?

Director Shane Black told us fans are in for a thrill ride.

"Drew Pearce, my co writer, and I were saying, what's the next step that's a worthy successor to the first two movies and how can we keep it edgy but also have laughs? It's going to be a thrill ride that surprises people," he said.

As for legendary comic book writer, Stan Lee, an executive producer on the project, he hopes fans continue to be entertained by the story of Marvel's brash-but-brilliant Tony Stark.

"Iron Man 1 was popular, Iron Man 2 was popular," he said. "It seems to be building in momentum and I think that's wonderful."

Lee, who as the former president of Marvel Comics, usually makes a cameo in Marvel films, also appears in this flick. He wouldn't say much about his appearance.

"My cameo is a little different this time," he said. "I think when you see it, you are going to say, why doesn't this man have an Oscar?" he joked.

Shaun Toub returns in Iron Man 3 as Yinsen. If you are an Iron Man 3 fan, you may remember, in the first movie, Yinsen helps Stark develop his armor, but is then, killed.

"It's nice to come and see the madness and see what has happened since the first one," he said. "We've been trying to see what we can do with Yinsen because fans are really a fan of Yinsen and not a lot of people are happy that they killed him off and they were finding a way for him to come back. This will be a nice surprise for them."

Toub believes this movie is going to be a fan favorite.

"It's going to be a great film," he said. "Fans are really going to enjoy this. It has the same kind of heart as the first one but it's different."
