Tony Stark’s big ego looks like it’s in for a bruising in Shane Black’s “Iron Man 3.” Well, at least that’s the main takeaway from the brand new preview for the third installment of the franchise debuted early Tuesday morning. If you haven’t caught it yet, check out the embedded video above.
As HitFix’s Drew McWeeny noted, Stark’s latest round of problems are putting his girlfriend and business partner, Pepper Potts, in thick of it creating a lot of dramatic tension for fans. One of the surprises of this teaser is the fact that it contains so many quick reveals. The Mandarin’s strange voice (thank you Sir Ben Kingsley). Happy Hogan (a returning Jon Favreau) fallen after an attack. Stark’s inability to get over the epic events that took place in “The Avengers” movie. Oh, and the most bizarre of all, why on earth is there a Captain America shield tattoo on the back of The Mandarin’s neck? (Or is Marvel just pulling our chain?). With that in mind, we canvassed the 2 minute preview and came up with the top 10 things we learned about May’s big blockbuster.
