35 Images from the New IRON MAN 3 Trailer

     October 23, 2012


The first trailer for Shane Black‘s Iron Man 3 dropped earlier today, and it’s pretty great.  The big take away is that this looks to be a surprisingly dark entry into the series, especially for the wise-cracking Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.).  But there are also some cool details in the trailer you may have missed.   What’s with the tattoo on the back of the Mandarin’s neck?  What happened to poor Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau)?  Who is Iron Patriot beating up on?  There are also plenty of cool images that prove Black, even though he only directed one movie before this one (albeit an excellent one), knows how to shoot action.

Hit the jump to check out the images.  The film also stars Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, and Ben KingsleyIron Man 3 opens in 3D on May 3, 2013.

Here’s the official synopsis for Iron Man 3:

Marvel Studios’ 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?

Starring Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Stephanie Szostak, James Badge Dale with Jon Favreau and Ben Kingsley, Iron Man 3 is directed by Shane Black from a screenplay by Drew Pearce and Shane Black and is based on Marvel’s iconic Super Hero Iron Man, who first appeared on the pages of Tales of Suspense (#39) in 1963 and had his solo comic book debut with The Invincible Iron Man (#1) in May of 1968.

Marvel Studios’ President Kevin Feige is producing and Jon Favreau, Louis D’Esposito, Stephen Broussard, Victoria Alonso, Alan Fine, Charles Newirth, Stan Lee and Dan Mintz are executive producers.

    Things I get from this trailer:
    1. Rebecca Hall is beautiful, even with sneakers (is that correctly written?),
    2. Is Happy going to die?,
    3. Guy Pearce looks like big prick,
    4. 2nd photo: that’s not Black Widow,
    5. Is the Mandarin a former US (SHIELD, CIA or whatever) operative because of the tattoo?,
    6. Or his suit is getting “mad” at some point in the movie or Tony has some severe head issues.
    Bottom line: This movie is going to kick some serious ass!!!
    PD: Notice the difference between this trailer and IM2’s: a lot of character traits among some serious awesome set pieces.

    well, when you have the invention of the first body suit in ironman 1 and then a crazy russian using iron man technology to do evil in ironman2, you can only go in one other direction for a third movie. You make lots of body suits and make them be used irresponsibly by the villains. i just wonder where they can go with 4 without becoming repetitive and predictable. move to japan?

    I hope Ben Kingsley won’t kiss someone’s armpit again.

    What is that busty sex bunny toy doing in Tony’s house, the picture above Guy Pearce kissing Pepper.
    LOL, some Pepper/Tony funny sex scenes please!

  • JohnP

    Is the tattoo not Caps shield with the Avengers ‘A’ in the middle?!?!?
    Also, IP is surely kicking TS’s ass?
    Hopefully Hogan dies, prolly giving TS a ‘revenge’ reason to go after Mandarin?
    Im guessing TS goes MIA (bottom of the sea/arctic) so his suits get used (by Gov) to defend against Mandarin who takes em over using nanobots, only for TS to return, lessons learned, humanity regained, blah-blah-blah, Mandarins ass kicked, the end. ;)

    WOW Thanx for the CLICK SCAM!!!! Al of these can be seen by pressing pause in the trailer. Greed makes you lower than sewage.

  • Ironfan

    Patriot suit looks cool. Having a new director was a good idea this looks like a fresh approach to the movie.

  • jk

    So is War Machine the Iron Patriot? No shots of Rhody’s suit in this clip.
