Tony Stark Suits Up In New ‘Iron Man 3’ Trailer

Marvel’s Phase 2 launches this May with Iron Man 3, and the studio is giving fans what they’ve wanted to see ever since Ol’ Shellhead hit the screen in 2008. Check out the latest trailer below!

Two words: Hulk. Buster. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t sqeal like a little girl when those suits flew in. With reports stating that the main suit we see in IM3 is the Mark 42 (or 47 depending on what you read), expect to see old favorites like the Stealth, Space, Hydro, Extremis, and, of course, the Hulkbuster armor.

One tiny, fanboy thing does bother me, though. A global threat clearly looms on the horizon (in the form of the Mandarin, played by Sir Ben Kinglsey), and the world, according to a news reporter, is asking, “Where is Tony Stark?” Not, “Where are the Avengers?”, who clearly saved the world in New York not too long ago. I understand wanting to keep the focus on Tony Stark/Iron Man, but when the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been fleshed out so well in the last several years, culminating with The Avengers, suddenly forgetting the team exists seems a little silly. Again, just my fanboy senses going off.

Iron Man 3, directed by Shane Black, suits up on May 3rd.
