No more teasers. No more teasers for teasers, no more Facebook campaigns and no more trailerceptions. This is it. This is the full trailer for Iron Man 3, and believe us, it’s got a completely different tone within it’s two minutes of explosions, self-doubt and use of the force than the other films ever had. Let the Mandarin educate you as to what exactly we are talking about, after the jump.
Bit of a dark trailer, isn’t it? Granted, it’s not entirely representative of the final film, but I’ll be a bit sad if Stark loses some of his trademark humour and arrogance when he upgrades his suit.
But otherwise, this looks like a right blockbuster of a film so far. There’s several threads being weaved in and out of it, from the Extremis influences, through to the appearance of the Iron Patriot and the Mandarin emerging to become the greatest threat that Stark has ever known, as he starts from scratch when he rebuilds the Iron Man.
Let’s just hope that director Shane Black can merge them into one cohesive storyline. Iron Man 3 is out next year, May 3, and stars Robert Downey Jr, Ben Kingsley, Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce and Rebecca Hall.
