Come May 2013, Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark will be back in his Iron Man suit for yet another summer, but the Marvel hero will also be in a much darker place.
"I've got a lot of apologies to make ... I can't sleep, and when I do I have nightmares," Downey's hero says in a voiceover. "Honestly, there's 100 people who'd want to kill me."
He hopes, looking toward Gwyneth Paltrow's Pepper Potts, that he can "protect the one thing" he can't live without.
And then, enter the villain of "Iron Man 3": Ben Kingsley's The Mandarin, who fancies himself a teacher rather than a terrorist. "Lesson No. 1," Kingsley intones in the trailer. "Heroes. There is no such thing."
The clip seems intent to prove that point, as we watch havoc invade Stark's life. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige told USA Today that seeing Stark so broken is the arc of the third film.
"While he is a charming guy, it is often hard to root for a genius billionaire playboy philanthropist because they seem to have it all," Feige said. "In this movie, we are again going to see him stripped down more than we've ever seen him since he was in that cave, again with his back against the wall and with nothing but his wits to help him survive."
"Iron Man 3," directed by co-screenwriter Shane Black ("Kiss Kiss Bang Bang"), will open May 3, 2013.
that's what you got for hacking that day also....
Tremendous things here. I am very happy to look your article. Thank you so much and I'm looking ahead to touch you. Will you kindly drop me a mail?
according to what we have on file
a must watch
downey raping this franchise lol!!
The best part about all of these haters and trash talkers is that they probably did the same thing for IM1 and 2, and for the Avengers, and then they stand in line to buy a ticket and go see the movie anyway. I especially love when the haters that I've known went to WalMart and went and bought the DVD. For a movie they had to say so much crap about, and now it sits in their DVD library. Total morons. Just keep your mouth shut, watch the movie, THEN decide.
this movie sucks! all the guy was a tatal lame! all the guy are a show off ! same as iron man 2 and 1
It sounds like a cool movie! i have watched "Iron Man 2" and it was really interesting. I'll wait for it!
Put Charlie Sheen in that outfit and it would be better
Charlie sheen is a talentless hack.
all of are just haters u all wish u were iron man.. f****king losers
don't be upset now.....its all a joke "robert"
are losers that hack into peoples systems
he's a big loser like you are-
as nicki minj
is a loser like his wife.
Listen, you're all just haters trying to be haters, and it's stupid that you've gotta bring a great actor in that. Snorlax and Henry below, they're about as stupid as you. These movies are great. And for all the haters going to buy a ticket to the movie the first night it comes out, think about that. All of the haters are just stupid, saying a bunch of crap without any proper grammar.
doesn't have a stump for a dik
doesn't have a dik...
I can't wait for this movie! RDJ has made this role so deeply felt, so multi-dimensional and so real that it can hardly even be called a "comic-book" movie. The character of Tony Stark has grown and changed over the years, through two Iron Man movies and Avengers now, and having this movie deal with his personal fears and vulnerabilities will be wonderful for all of us fans. I have always said that, while we appreciate the big CGI effects, the iron men fighting and the exhilarating flying scenes, it all comes back to the characters and the audience caring about them. Marvel knows how to do this with great elan, and RDJ humanizes and defines every character he takes on – he is truly one of America's finest actors. What a cast – two-time Oscar nominee Downey and Oscar winners Paltrow and Kingsley – "comic book movies" are not to be trivialized any more. They are the mythos of our time. Rock on, RDJ.
he's a drunk
I agree – love Robert Downey Jr as Iron Man – and the movies are awesome! From a woman's point of view, I want him to find happiness. Yes, sappy, but it's artistic expression and happy endings are what makes watching the movies fun and exciting. Let's just enjoy the entertainment and leave RDJ's past out of it – he's proven he's been able to overcome his real-life demons, even with the missteps. I love the series and just want to enjoy the experience!
if you were a s pik female he would have never done it.
Oh no, I've left too. I just forgot to tell my screen name. It'll catch up soon enough.
The end of the trailer sounds like the end of the Dark Knight Rises trailer.

he is disgusting–and i will continue to make sure everyone knows it

I laugh at all of you cause I'm pretty damn sure if you clicked this to watch the trailer, you're interested, which means you'll go see it in theatres with all your buddies. Trolls will always be useless, whiny, pathetic people who are upset because they aren't good at anything but trying to 'bash' people they don't even know. GG guyz.

he's an awful person –
hand him money for one of his garbage he provides? never in 1 million years.
goes with the la tramps in town and hates whites. he likes piks much better.
I think he doesn't use anymore. That's why his acting is so terrible now.
i have hated his guts for 6 years now...and always will, he can't act, he's a pig and a former druggie
i have no use for these people
he's basically disconnected to life, has a crappy life and chooses to live that way.
we hate him
is basically of no use...same parts same garbage and most cannot stand him–
does he still have a smoke dope problem?
Robert Downey Jr.....he can't act and basically cannot do anything other then this.
robert downey jr... should have been thrown out of the cast years ago. he is basically useless.
get the actor...
and he cannot act...its really both actors...do what you want...you want the actor...i understand
maybe you should get him also....its up to you guys
will never work based on lack of popularity and poor judgement
