Up until this point, the marketing campaign for the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe film made it seem as though Stark was going through some dark, depressing times. Well, he is, but this latest trailer shows fans that they will have a lot of fun watching him go through them. Stark found his focus in “The Avengers,” and now he’s going to concentrate on protecting those he loves — namely Gwyneth Paltrow‘s Pepper Potts — and he’s going to get revenge on those who seek to harm them.
In this case, that’s Ben Kingsley‘s The Mandarin. This trailer reveals more of the villain than has been seen before, and he definitely looks like a formidable foe. Also teased are Don Cheadle as Col. James Rhodes, Guy Pearce as the scientist Aldrich Killian and Rebecca Hall as Maya Hansen. “Iron Man 3” is due out in theaters on May 3.
