We’ve all been very good and now the man in the red suit is here to reward us. No, not Father Christmas – Tony Stark! Iron Man 3 is finally touching down in UK cinemas and for those still wondering whether they should go and see it (they should), here’s a fresh featurette with some new footage and the possibly spoilery mention of a particular plotline.

Iron Man 3 is on screens now in the UK, while American audiences will have to wait until May 3. Nip over here for Empire's review.
