Just as he kicked off Marvel Phase 1, Iron Man is the vanguard of the next group of films from Marvel Studios. Check out the trailer for Iron Man 3 below!
Tony Stark looks to be in line for a tragic beatdown he finally goes toe-to-toe with Iron Man’s most famous villain, The Mandarin (finally portrayed on screen by Sir Ben Kingsley). Sharp-eyed fans will also spot a hint at the inclusion of the Extremis serum at work, as Tony summons his gauntlet from across the workshop.
Since building hype for a movie is now an artform, anticipation for the second Iron Man sequel began at SDCC in July when an extended preview was shown for a select group in Hall H. Follow that up with a teaser for the trailer this past weekend, and you have a marketing snowball that will only build until the film’s release on May 3, 2013.
