This upcoming Tuesday, October 23rd @ 12:01am, the first official trailer for Iron Man 3 will be unleashed to the public. There was a seemingly legit description of the trailer leaked about a month ago (below), so we will finally be able to see if it’s true or not. This will be our first glimpse at Marvel Phase 2 and what we can expect to be the start of the build up to The Avengers 2 in 2015. It seems like only yesterday that we were anticipating the seeds that would be planted for The Avengers in Iron Man 2 after the debut of the first Iron Man in 2008.
It opens with a voice over of Tony Stark talking about how the events of New York (I’m assuming the Avenger Movie) changed him, and how he’s just not “into it” anymore. First scene is Iron Man with battle damage, laying down amid rubble and taking of his faceplate to show a bleeding Stark. Scenes of him arguing with Pepper Potts in the armory (cool shots of alternative Iron Man suits including the red white and blue one we’ve seen on your site already), press conferences, Tony looking solemn, Tony talking with someone who looks like a psychiatrist, and a short shot of Don Cheadle in military uniform (no War Machine in the preview). Also one scene of who I presume is the Mandarin, forcefully landing and cracking the ground. However, it looked like a silver Iron Man. I was unable to tell in the brief view who it was (maybe due to unfinished CGI).
We then get a voice over from Ben Kingsley, talking about how there there are no heroes and how he will teach everyone, especially Stark, a lesson. This is over scenes of the alternative Suits getting blown up, Stark going into surgery, and a fleet of helicopters launching missiles which blow Stark’s home up and apart (the CGI looked nearly finished) and sending Stark and Pepper into the sea below. Then a close up of Kingsley with no helmet in the Mandarin armor.
It ends with Iron man underwater swimming towards what looks like his “heart reactor thing”. Then the logo, then stark walking in the snow dragging a large bag, then the logo again.
All and all, a somber trailer, dark and humorless, which seemed more in tone with The Dark Knight Rises than with any of the other Iron Man movies or the Avengers.
Iron Man 3 stars Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Gwyneth Paltrow, Guy Pearce, with Jon Favreau and Ben Kingsley. Directed by Shane Black (“Kiss Kiss Bang Bang“), Iron Man 3 will be released on May 3, 2013 release in 3D.
