New Iron Man 3 trailer released
MANILA, Philippines - Marvel and Disney have released the newest Iron Man 3 trailer online. Published exclusively by Yahoo! the new trailer showcases previously unseen armors taking flight side-by-side with the genius-billionaire-playboy-philanthropist Tony Stark.
Aside from the cornucopia of armors, the movie features War Machine now painted in stars and stripes as the Iron Patriot. The Hulkbuster armor at the end of the trailer alludes to the recent meet-up of Iron Man with the gamma-irradiated green Goliath from last year's blockbuster, The Avengers.
As shown in the previous trailers, Iron Man is attacked at home by the forces of the Mandarin, the man behind the Ten Rings Organization which abducted Stark in the first movie. The character Mandarin was shelved for the third film because of its mystical origin in comics.
In the new trailer, Stark states a clear mission statement in his fight against the Mandarin: “Good, old-fashioned revenge.”
The movie is loosely based on the Extremis storyline in the comics, where Iron Man gained the ability to control his armors through his nervous system.
Iron Man 3 is the first Marvel film to be directed by Shane Black. It stars returning actors Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark), Gwyneth Paltrow (Pepper Potts), Don Cheadle (James Rhodes) and Jon Favreau (Happy Hogan), who also directed the two previous “Iron Man” films.
They are joined by Ben Kingsley (Mandarin), Guy Pearce (Aldrich Killian), Rebecca Hall (Maya Hansen), James Badge Dale (Eric Savin/Coldblood), Ashley Hamilton (Jack Taggert/Firepower).
Iron Man 3 is set for international release in April.
