Iron Man 3

Some directors just have a weird thing about Christmas, and that's definitely the case for writer/director Shane Black, who has injected the Christmas spirit into no less than six of his films, including Lethal Weapon and the Robert Downey Jr/Val Kilmer indie thrill ride Kiss, Kiss, Bang-Bang. Well, when Black teamed up with Downey yet again on Iron Man 3, Black made sure to include the holiday yet again, he had this to say: "It's a way to have them all undergo a common experience. There's something at Christmas that unites everybody, and it already sets a stage within the stage, that wherever you are, you're experiencing this world together."
