TORONTO – Marvel Entertainment’s Iron Man 3 is to be supersized for release on IMAX screens internationally starting April 25.

The latest installment of the Tony Stark/Iron Man Marvel franchise also will hit domestic theaters  May 3, simultaneous with the Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures rollout.

Iron Man 3 is the fourth Marvel film to screen in IMAX theaters, after Iron Man 2, Thor and The Avengers last year.

"Marvel and IMAX are a perfect one-two punch, and the Iron Man franchise has become a global phenomenon that resonates with fans around the world," said Greg Foster, chairman and president of IMAX Filmed Entertainment, in a statement Tuesday.

IMAX will digitally remaster Iron Man 3 -- which sees Tony Stark go after the person responsible for his personal world being destroyed at his enemy’s hands -- for the large-format release.

The Marvel release, directed by Shane Black, stars Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce and Rebecca Hall.
