New trailer for ‘Iron Man 3’ arrives online

iron-man-3-movieMarvel/Disney have released a new trailer for Iron Man 3 and it promises to be absolutely fantastic. The film sees Robert Downey Jr return as Tony Stark/Iron Man and also boasts a stellar supporting cast that features Don Cheadle, Paul Bettany, Rebecca Hall, Gwyneth Paltrow, Guy Pearce and Ben Kingsley.

Check out the trailer below:

Following on from the monumental worldwide success of The Avengers, this certainly seems like a marked improvement on Iron Man 2, with Don Cheadle playing a much more prominent role within the narrative. The threat of the Mandarin (played by Ben Kingsley) is very succinct and his character appears to effectively symbolise the archetypal comic book villain.

Here’s a brief synopsis:

Tony Stark faces a powerful enemy, the Mandarin, when he embarks on a quest to find those responsible for destroying his private world. Along the way, he 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 is directed by Shane Black (Lethal Weapon, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang) and is due for release in the UK on 26th April and US on 3rd May 2013.
