Watch: Full Trailer For ‘Iron Man 3’ Finally Here

Watch: Full Trailer For 'Iron Man 3' Finally Here

After a day of endless photos, posters, updates and even a second teaser trailer for the trailer, the full trailer for Marvel‘s first post-“Avengers” movie, “Iron Man 3,” has arrived over at Apple at the curious hour of 12.01PM PST. So strap in, here we go….

This first full trailer gives us a somewhat darker tone than we’re used to, with Tony Stark’s wisecracks dialed down almost entirely. But for the most part, this is the “Iron Man” we all know and (sort of) love, the signs of teething problems for new helmer Shane Black nowhere to be found. Indeed, there’s some surprisingly haunting images in here (the Hiroshima-style scorched shadows on the wall), although we’ve got our fingers crossed that this dour tone won’t be in place throughout 100% of the film.

The action looks typically spectacular, with most of the running time devoted to the destruction of Stark Manor, or whatever his clifftop house is called. We’re not 100% sold on the choice of Ben Kingsley‘s for the voice, and Guy Pearce, who’s previously described his role as a cameo, is more prevalent here than some of his other co-stars like Rebecca Hall and James Badge Dale.

“A lot of this movie is about characters going back into the shadows for various reasons and characters who have been in the shadows coming out and into the light for the first time,” Kevin Feige told EW. “It is Tony who, for various reasons, finds himself receding into the darkness. I don’t mean emotional darkness, I mean literally ducking out of the spotlight. And we’ll see other characters stepping up who have pulled strings from the background, starting to show their hand.”

“Iron Man 3” opens on May 3, 2013.

It's already good because Guy Pearce is in it.


Industry perspective….. lol thats good stuff. shouldnt you have more important stuff to do than post on the playlist if you are in the industry boyo?


Great. How many "JDs" are posting on this site anyway?!? Anyway, Iron Man III looks good.


This just makes me so excited to see the movie! The only thing that bothered me is Ben Kinsley's voice. A whole movie's worth of that could get annoying. It's worse than Christian Bale's Batman voice.


If it's coming out on May 3, why does the trailer itself say April?


"I am only speaking from an industry perspective,"

No, you're not – it's an entirely personal thing. And there is absolutely nothing wrong in that. And the introduction of 'two new characters' isn't going to do anything to the "already successful set."

How many people read Iron Man comics compared to watching the movie counterparts?
Nowhere NEAR as many, Iron Man's standalone comics have always been one of the lower sellers for Marvel, so incorporating some of the more extravagant and different characters can only be a good thing.

Keep an open mind.
And please never say that you are talking from an "industry perspective," if you really want to talk like that then go finance some films yourself and obsess over revenue over anything artistic.


"I get the feeling with the Ant Man and Guardians of the Galaxy they may have pushed it too far."

I get the feeling no one will know until they come out – keep an open mind, they're only films.
And besides, a talking Raccoon may turn out better than you could have ever imagined.
He might become your new best friend.


It definitley looks a lot darker than the first two, from an industry perspective it will certainly be interested to see how phase two goes for Marvel in terms of quality and box office. The original heros from phase one are sure be solid both in terms of quality and box office results especially with Iron Man being a cornerstone but I get the feeling with the Ant Man and Guardians of the Galaxy they may have pushed it too far.
