'Iron Man 3' debuts new trailer showing the evil Mandarin and the Iron Man army (+video)(Read article summary)
'Iron Man 3' will be released May 3.
The new Iron Man 3Â trailer reveals much more of the storyline behind Tony Starkâ€™s latest adventureÂ -Â much of which weâ€™ve already dug up in our posts on theÂ Iron Man 3Â armor guide and Iron Legion poster breakdown.
Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) is in a bit of a funk following his near-death experience in space at the climax ofÂ The Avengers â€“ and despite new technologies that let him control his armor remotely by command, heâ€™s still not ready for the assault by The Mandarin (Ben Kingsley), a nefarious terrorist leader whose Machevellian schemes trace back to Tonyâ€™s initial near-death ordeal, as seen inÂ Iron Man.
As viewed above, there is a going to be some major action in this threequel film â€“ and seemingly a much better (and epic) story arc than we got in the lukewarmÂ Iron Man 2. For fans who were not that impressed by theÂ Iron Man 3Â teaser trailer: the sight of Tony and Rhodey (Don Cheadle) summoning that Iron Man army â€“ including the unofficial Hulk Buster design(!) â€“ is probably going to be a better motivator to get you in the theater seats, no?
