Second Iron Man 3 trailer reveals… Iron Legion

Iron Man 3 (US One Sheet poster version nine)With the release of Iron Man 3 less than two months away, a new trailer and poster has been unveiled.

So far all the posters for this third instalment, including the latest one, have shown Tony Stark unmasked in his (partially destroyed) suit of armour, suggesting that the latest film is less about the Iron and more about the Man. 

Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) is left trying to adjust after what happened to him in New York, as seen in The Avengers. He suddenly finds himself the target of The Mandarin (Ben Kingsley), a mysterious terrorist who goes so far as to blowing up Stark’s home. With none of his fellow Avengers there to back him up, Stark is left having to fight this battle by himself.

While each film in the franchise has drawn from the Warren Ellis and Adi Granov Iron Man comic book Extremis, Iron Man 3 looks to be heavily based upon it. Featuring new characters Aldrich Killian (Guy Pearce) and Maya Hansen (Rebecca Hall), together they work on creating a serum that accelerates healing, boosts the immune system and increases strength.

This is clearly a more serious sequel, with jokes kept to a minimum in the latest trailer. Amid the explosions we see a bit more of Jim Rhodes (Don Cheadle) as Iron Patriot, a glimpse of The Mandarin’s rings of power and a closing shot that has Stark call his boys in for back up. Click play below.

If you want more, there’s also an international trailer which features a few additional scenes that promote China’s presence in the film.

Directed by Shane Black, Iron Man 3 opens in the UK on 25 April and in the US on 3 May.
