The first trailer for director Shane Black‘s Iron Man 3 has been released and it’s looking a lot darker for Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) this time around. Following the events of The Avengers, Stark is a bit more shaken up than one would have expected. His nightmares plague him with sleepless nights and constant fear that harm will befall the people he cares about. And it’s looking like his greatest technological achievement will become his biggest threat. At least until the Mandarin (Ben Kingsley) makes his appearance in grand fashion (though I’m not 100% sold on his accent).
Hit the jump to watch the trailer. The film stars also stars Don Cheadle, Gwyneth Paltrow, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Ashley Hamilton, Jon Favreau and James Badge Dale. Iron Man 3 opens on May 3rd, 2013.

While Comic-Con is busy bringing all sorts of comic-book marketing to the masses, the stunt folk are busy working hard on the set of Iron Man 3. Filming in North Carolina, an aerial stunt sequence was recently captured by the local news crew. The footage may be somewhat spoilery only because it alludes to what is certain to be some sort of disaster/rescue sequence, but it also lacks any finished effects or context. Make of it what you will.
Iron Man 3, directed by Shane Black and starring Robert Downey Jr., Ben Kingsley, Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Rebecca Hall, Ashley Hamilton, and Guy Pearce opens May 3, 2013. Hit the jump to check out the footage.
We recently reported that Mads Mikkelsen (Casino Royale) would be joining Tom Hiddleston as a baddie in Thor 2, so Iron Man 3 went ahead and added their own firepower. In this case, “Firepower” is actually the villain that Ashley Hamilton (Sunset Beach) is in talks to play. In the Marvel universe, Hamilton’s character was the pilot of a “power suit” prototype built by the government (likely, S.H.I.E.L.D.) under the codename “Project: Firepower.” And we all know that, once you’ve strapped on a suit of battle armor, it doesn’t take too long before you challenge Tony Stark/Iron Man himself (Robert Downey Jr.). Also returning, in a producer capacity, will be Jon Favreau. But it looks like fans will be able to see the Iron Man director on screen as well. Hit the jump for more.
