Five things to know about Ty Simpkins, the kid in 'Iron Man 3' -- EXCLUSIVE PHOTO

Rhodey isn’t Tony Stark’s only sidekick in Iron Man 3. In the threequel, Tony, while stranded in a small, snow-covered Tennessee town, gets some help from a science-savvy kid named Harley, played by young actor Ty Simpkins.

When EW met up with Simpkins on the Disney lot to talk about Iron Man 3, the 11-year-old donned a T-shirt covered with Stormtroopers on skateboards, and tucked back on his head was the pair of Stark Industries 3-D glasses he got at the movie’s premiere. “I got all of them,” he proudly declared of his Marvel-themed 3-D glasses collection.

Shane Black and 'Iron Man 3': Who knew that the high-concept screenwriter of 'Lethal Weapon' would turn out to be a thrilling director?

If Iron Man 3 had been made by a young director who very few people had heard of, his name would now be on everyone’s lips in Hollywood, and not just because he delivered a big hit movie. They’d be talking about his eagerness and speed and raw talent, the dark flash of his visual style, the zigzag precision of his flair of violence, his way of making every performance count. They’d be talking about how this young director had infused a franchise blockbuster — a Part 3, no less, which usually means that a series, no matter how popular it is, is running low on creative octane — with the quality that so many comic-book movies have lacked: the feeling that what we’re seeing actually matters, that something is at stake beyond the global box-office grosses.

'Iron Man 3': Tony Stark attempts a mid-air rescue -- VIDEO

'Iron Man 3' red carpet premiere tonight: Tune in for the live stream!

The last time we saw Tony Stark, he was chilling with his homies eating some well-deserved shawarma after slamming the door on some parallel-universe baddies. One year later, Marvel is poised to enter Phase II of its once scoffed-about plan to rewrite the rules of the superhero franchise, and it’s only right that Iron Man leads the way when Iron Man 3 premieres tonight in Los Angeles. Captain America might be the First Avenger, but it was Iron Man who got the ball rolling at the box office in 2008 and remains the expanded universe’s biggest attraction.

Tonight, Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, and more will walk the red carpet at the El Capitan Theater, and you can watch it live-streamed right here beginning at 8:30 p.m. ET.













Fans have seen glimpses of the evil Mandarin (Ben Kingsley) in the trailers, but it’s time to finally see what he has planned for our billionaire hero. Of equal interest will be the clever hints and sly Easter eggs that impact the greater Marvel universe and all its sub-franchises…

Theaters withold 'Iron Man 3' pre-order tickets as Disney seeks a better deal

Just 16 more days until Iron Man 3 soars into theaters. The superhero adventure ushers in the official summer-blockbuster season on May 3 and is expected to easily top $100 million in its first three days. So if you want to see it opening night, you’re likely going to have to order your tickets well in advance.

That is, if they’re available in advance. Depending on where you’re shopping online and which theater chain is close by, you might be forced to enter the day-of theater scrum. As Deadline reported yesterday from CinemaCon, Disney is locked in financial negotiations with several major theater chains, and AMC and Regal were among those putting up a fight, playing their card by not offering tickets for the Marvel superhero epic in advance. “We do not have Iron Man 3 tickets on sale because we are still working to reach terms with Disney,” said AMC in a statement. “We hope to reach agreement and get tickets on sale as soon as possible so it doesn’t affect opening weekend.” READ FULL STORY
