As promised, today sees the release of the first trailer for Iron Man 3. If Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr) thought that life after the Battle of New York was going to be all shawarma and cuddling with his girl friend Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow), it looks like he has another thing coming.
The official plot blurb for the film fills out some of what we see here –
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?
Iron Man 3 opens May 3.
