The MTV Movie Awards isn’t just a phony awards show designed to gather celebrities in a room. It’s also a chance for studios to sell their big upcoming summer movies. There even used to be an award for the best movie of the summer even though those movies hadn’t been released yet. That category has been dropped, but the marketing remains, and MTV has announced that they’ll be premiering an exclusive extended scene from Iron Man 3. I think Marvel has already gone dangerously close to giving away too much of the picture, but if you can’t get enough of Tony Stark fighting his own suits of armor, you’ll probably want to tune in (or you could just wait until the show is over, and watch it when MTV.com posts it online).
Hit the jump to see a sneak peek at the extended scene. If you want to tune in to see the whole clip, the MTV Movie Awards air on Sunday at 9/8c. The show will also have footage from The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Iron Man 3 opens in 3D on May 3rd.
Here’s the official synopsis for Iron Man 3:
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?
