Watch: Very Quick 'Iron Man 3' Trailer Sneak Preview is a Real Tease
The first trailer for Iron Man 3 arrives in just a day and a half away (be here at 12:01AM on October 23rd to see it), but as we pointed out a few days ago, Facebook fans had the ability to unlock a "sneak preview". As predicted, it's a trailer for the trailer, but there's some interesting shots. Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.) has a new haircut, Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) seems to be in trouble and damn, does that Mark XLVII armor look good. Obviously, you'll have to wait to see the good stuff, hopefully including a much better glimpse at Ben Kingsley as Mandarin (there's a quick cut in this preview, but you can't see his face) which we saw at Comic-Con, when the trailer arrives in 36 short hours. Preview below + trailer here.
Here's the early sneak preview for Shane Black's Iron Man 3, from the Iron Man Facebook page:
Iron Man 3 is directed by Shane Black (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang) working from a script that he co-wrote with Drew Pearce. Robert Downey Jr. Returns as Tony Stark and Iron Man in this sequel described as a technological crisis thriller in the midst of international war, taking place after the events of The Avengers. Sir Ben Kinglsey is playing Iron Man's arch nemesis Mandarin and Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Dale Dickey, Ashley Hamilton, James Badge Dale and Jon Favreau all co-star in the Marvel Studios production which Disney will send to theaters on May 3rd, 2013.
