A new installment of the Disney Channel’s “Stars on the Set” giving us a behind-the-scenes look at “Iron Man 3” has popped up online and in addition to a few new shots from the film and a healthy dose of on-set footage, the clip provides us with a character we have yet to see in any trailer. His name is Harley, he’s a kid, and he’s there to help Iron Man out.
“When Iron Man crash lands in the small town of Rose Hill,” says host Roshon Fegan, “he finds an unlikely ally in a kid named Harley who helps him get back on his feet.” Check out the whole clip below before it disappears.
Now, it’s entirely possible that Harley’s role is being hyped up here because this is for the Disney Channel and, well, kids would obviously get excited about seeing a kid hanging out with Iron Man. But the part of me that was burned by kid Anakin Skywalker can’t help but get flashbacks when Harley exclaims “that’s way cooler!”
We’ll find out just how important Harley is to the Iron Man mythos when the film opens on May 3rd.
