The first two Iron Man movies could be characterized as providing light, funny entertainment – almost to a fault, if you like a little bit of danger to go along with your superheroics. But now that the first official trailer for Iron Man 3 has dropped, it looks like the filmmakers are going in a much darker, Dark Knight-inspired direction.
You can check out the trailer below, which shows our hero getting beaten up and subjected to numerous other indignities. At one point, you may even find yourself expecting Bane to pop up and start punching him. We also get glimpses of the new Iron Man armor, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, and Ben Kingsley, who plays Iron Man’s arch-enemy, The Mandarin.
Check it out, and feel the anticipation for Iron Man 3‘s release grow inside you:
