First Iron Man 3 Trailer Hits The Web

Tuesday, October 23rd, 2012

We’ve been curious as to what director Shane Black was going to bring to the table with Iron Man 3 after the Jon Favreau era came to an end with the underwhelming 2nd movie. Black is notorious for his work on Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, which coincidentally enough also starred Robert Downey, Jr.

Last night gave us a glimpse into what Black and Marvel will be giving us this coming April with the first teaser trailer:

We’re definitely seeing a different tone with this flick. And while it’s too early to tell, it seems to calm down on the comedy bits that we’d come to expect from Downey movies. We also get acknowledgement that Stark’s ordeal in New York in the Avengers movie comes back to haunt him in this one.

I love what I’m seeing so far. It’s a nice boost to the franchise that was lambasted in its last movie for being too similar to the first one. Ben Kingsley’s Mandarin sounds over the top, but then again we put up with that with Bane in Dark Knight Rises, so why not here too?

May 3rd, 2013 is when it lands here in the states.
