Iron Man 3 Trailer: Tony Stark Has Got Lots of New Company
We're less than two months away from the much-awaited return of the most badass superhero of the year, and by the looks of it, Iron Man 3 will give us exactly what we want from the Marvel franchise, bringing in a lot of new stuff for the fans.
Are you ready?
The third installment in the franchise sees 'genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist' Tony Stark, played for the fourth time by Robert Downey Jr., gearing up to go against his greatest foe, the Mandarin (Sir Ben Kingsley), after he blows up his Malibu home, which clearly shook his world.
The newest trailer gives us a fuller sense of what to expect when Downey Jr. returns to the suit, featuring more explosions, bigger fight scenes, and a whole lot of drama. It focuses substantial attention on Stark's relationship to lady love, Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow), which seems to be the main conflict of the upcoming sequel.
The clip begins with a grim voice-over of Stark, saying, "I'm Tony Stark. I build neat stuff, I got a great girl, and occasionally save the world. So why can't I sleep?"
It further reveals Stark using new techniques to battle the evil Mandarin, the most intriguing of which is his new power to control his super-powered armour suit using only his mind.
However, it doesn't stop at that. The trailer's big reveal comes right at the very end, with the arrival of a whole fleet of Iron Man suits as reinforcements, including one that looks bigger and badder than anything we've seen before.
As of now, three trailers had been released for the movie, the first one last October which gave a glimpse at a battered Stark, yet we still get our heads spinning every single time a clip comes out.
This just proves that Iron Man 3 will sure be a big blockbuster as it hit the theaters internationally on April 25 and May 3 in the U.S. But for now, just sit back, relax, and take a sneak peak of our most-loved avenger as he gets his ass kicked, kick ass right back, and everything in between.
