The trailer for Iron Man 3 is upon us! Following yesterday’s explosion of images and information is the trailer for the film that will jumpstart Marvel’s “Phase 2” of their film universe. The trailer shows a darker side of Tony Stark’s (Robert Downey, Jr.) life, complete with a snowy introduction and a walk through a snow covered plain to end the trailer. Key elements introduced into the trailer are the Iron Patriot armor (which is being described as War Machine’s new suit), Sir Ben Kingsley as Mandarin (one of Iron Man’s primary villains), the Extremis armor (which Tony can manipulate with his mind), as well as the destruction of all of Tony’s previous Iron Man models. Sounds like the making of a very brooding sequel, doesn’t it? Hopefully, it doesn’t stifle Downey, Jr.’s niche for snappy comebacks and one-liners.
Iron Man 3 will be in theaters on May 3rd, 2013.
