So after the 18 second teaser and a slew of images involving broken helmets, passionate embraces, and bluetooths, we finally have our first look at the new trailer for Iron Man 3.
Check out here below the first trailer for the next chapter of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
We are finally getting an answer to the question of what happens to our heroes after the events seen in this year’s The Avengers. Apparently things will start off with Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) literally hitting rock bottom. As we can see in the trailer, Stark has been deeply affected by the war against Loki and the Chutari, and he seeks to some how save the ones he loves by building some sort of new technology that allows him to consciously summon his armor. But that might not be enough to stop a new and powerful villain called The Mandarin (Ben Kingsley).
Remember Iron Man 3 is the sequel to both Iron Man 2 and The Avengers, and is the first chapter in Phase 2 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Judging by the look and tone of this trailer, Iron Man 3 looks to be the darkest installment of the Iron Man film franchise. Considering that the film is still in production, it’s not a surprise that most of the footage seen in this trailer came from the sneak preview that was revealed at Comic-Con earlier this year.
Directed and co-written by Shane Black, Iron Man 3 also stars Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Stephanie Szostak, James Badge Dale, and Jon Favreau.
Here’s a plot synopsis:
Marvel’s “Iron Man 3” pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. 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?
