Detailed IRON MAN 3 Trailer Description Leaks Online
Published: August 14, 2012 - 8:05am
Hitting theaters May 3, 2013, Iron Man 3 returns Robert Downey, Jr. as the iconic super hero character Tony Stark/Iron Man along with Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts, Don Cheadle as James “Rhodey” Rhodes and Jon Favreau as Happy Hogan.
Iron Man 3 is loosely based on Warren Ellis' six-issue "Extremis" comic book story arc which focuses on the spread of a virus through nanotechnology that eventually causes Tony Stark to engineer a new suit that is integrated directly into his body. The Mandarin, a terrorist villain and leader of the 10 Rings organization featured in the first two films, will finally make his entrance into the franchise.
Aint It Cool News has published a detailed description for the first Iron Man 3 trailer. No confirmation has come through as to the validity of this report. Several of the scenes are identical to those shows at this year's Marvel Studios Comic-Con panel in San Diego. Here is the description in full:
"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 is directed by Shane Black based off of a script by Drew Pierce. The film stars Robert Downy Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Scarlett Johansson, Sir Ben Kingsley, Guy Pearce, James Badge Dale and Ashley Hamilton. Iron Man 3 is scheduled for theatrical release on May 3, 2013.
