It's here, it's here! The theatrical trailer for Iron Man 3 is here and it's really rather action-packed. Explosions galore, quite a lot of mortal peril and a bit more of a clue of what we're in for. Check it out below and let us know what you think.
A few bits of voiceover and dialogue give us some pointers on where this is headed. Robert Downey Jr's Tony Stark is having trouble sleeping, and he has some major worries. A new President is talking big talk about a terrorist called the Mandarin, who's not too concerned: "You don't know who I am. You'll never see me coming." And Tony's stressed out. "Things are different now. I have to protect the one thing I can't live without, and that's you," he tells Gwyneth Paltrow's Pepper Potts. The romance!
Soon Mandarin's offering Stark options of a type usually associated with characters called Sophie: "an empty life or a meaningful death". But Stark's defiant, and soon we're seeing a fight-back, accompanied by Don Cheadle's Rhodesy and a flight of back-up suits (robots?). Watch out, villains! Hold on to your hats / iron suits, audience!
Iron Man 3 is out on April 25 in the UK - a day earlier than previously planned - which is less than two months away. This is a relief because we're not sure we'll last much longer. Empire's Iron Man 3 issue, meanwhile, is out... now.
