For the fan of the Iron Man franchise, this first movie trailer for Iron Man 3 seems to hit the spot and whet the appetite! Does it not? This is when Tony Stark starts to use the Extremis armor. But notice the lack of reference to the first bad guy who beats him silly and forces that decision? Or is that the first scene we see?
The movie trailer opens to a beaten Iron Man/Tony Stark, with a Stark voice-over talking about how nothing has been the same since New York (referencing events in The Avengers).
We see some seriously confusing imagery (you’ll see what I mean) and then there’s a new voice, a voice saying he’s not a terrorist, he’s a teacher.
We see the devastation of Stark’s Malibu mansion and a few other tidbits.
Iron Man 3 Movie Trailer No. 1
This third chapter seems to be less about himself and more about the people around Tony Stark. The movie trailer has a very dark overtone to it. Will Tony get through this mess he’s found himself in? Will Pepper survive? Seeing her in the one scene in the mansion almost gives credence to the idea of Rescue being brought into the picture, but still, I’m willing to wait on that opinion.
Iron Man 3 is directed by Shane Black (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang) who co-wrote with Drew Pearce. Robert Downey Jr. returns as Tony Stark/Iron Man, Ben Kinglsey plays Iron Man‘s long-time muse, Mandarin. Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Dale Dickey, Ashley Hamilton, James Badge Dale and Jon Favreau all co-staring.
Iron Man 3 is due out on May 3rd, 2013.
