Well, yesterday we got the poster, and today we finally got the trailer. Did any of us even imagine this trailer would be as dark as it is? Holy shit. In a very Empire Strikes Back/The Dark Knightish move, Stark is seemingly at his lowest point in the trilogy. And how cool does Ben Kingsley look as Mandarin? On that note, no more words are necessary. Enjoy this trailer, and try not to do THIS after it’s over. I dare you.
Iron Man 3 pits genius-billionaire-playboy-philanthropist Tony Stark (Iron Man) against the Mandarin, an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed by his mysterious antagonist, he embarks on a dangerous quest to find those responsible. His journey will test his character at every turn. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?
Iron Man 3 hits theaters on May 3, 2013.
