Marvel At The New Iron Man 3 Trailer

“I’m Tony Stark. I build neat stuff, I’ve got a great girl. Occasionally I save the world. So why can’t I sleep?” asks Robert Downey Jr’s Iron Man at the beginning of the just released extended trailer for Iron Man 3. The answer’s revealed to us pretty soon after – it’s because big old hairy Ben Kingsley’s rocking up as the Mandarin, scratching his beard and rocking those sunglasses whilst he inflicts all manner of hell on the good old US of A. If that doesn’t keep you awake nothing will (and that’s just at the thought of the seemingly evergreen big Ben. What a guy.)

We’ve seen clips of the film before, with glimpses of Stark and the Mandarin’s battle against each other teased. However it all comes out in the two and a half minutes recently revealed by Marvel Studios, with it becoming pretty apparent that the Mandarin is going to focus on the one thing Stark can’t live without – his gal, played by Gwyneth Paltrow. Isn’t that always the way?

Ben Kingsley

Expect a much hairier Ben Kingsley in Iron Man 3

A new president has been sworn in to office in the new film, and Iron Man flies down to the white houseto pledge his allegiance to him. However, by the end of the trailer “there’s no politics, just good old fashioned revenge”, which suggests an almighty duel between the pair. The Mandarin meanwhile claims that he’s got the upper hand because Stark doesn’t know who he is. If Stark watched this trailer, he would of course realize that it was big beardy Ben Kingsley. Let battle commence!
