Iron Man 3 Trailer and Poster is here!

There was a lot of hoo-ha a couple of days ago over a small sneak peak teaser for Iron Man 3. Basically once the arc-reactor was energised, or in other words, when the Facebook page had enough likes, Marvel made a short 17 second video available. It was barely worth mentioning especially since the real trailer would be released a mere two days later.

After the first teaser a few official photos were also released. We got our first look at Ben Kingsley as the Mandarin, some more images of the new Iron Man suit and a nice clear picture of War Machine in his all American paint job.

But finally, the first real trailer for Iron Man 3 has arrived.

This isn’t the usual AC/DC and one-liners sort of trailer. There’s still plenty of action but it’s obvious already that the stakes will be high. It’s also interesting to see that we might get to explore how Tony is actually coping after the big events of The Avengers. He can’t sleep and he’s worried for Pepper. Most poignant of all is the final fade up from black to reveal Tony dragging his armour through the snow in silence. This is the slot in the trailer usually reserved for that last joke or explosive bit of action, but there’s none of that here.

Iron Man 3 is going to be a very different beast and will hopefully be a better film for it. So far things are looking good but what do you think? Questions and comments below.

Directed by Shane Black, Iron Man 3 is set to open in the UK on April 26th 2013, and in the US a week later on May 3rd.
