Marvel and Disney have made good on their promise to deliver the first footage from Iron Man 3, just four days after asking fans to ‘Like’ the official Facebook page until Tony Stark’s Arc reactor becomes “recharged”. After reaching the 100% mark on the official Iron Man 3 Facebook page, Marvel has now released the following sneak preview of Shane Black’s upcoming installment in the Iron Man franchise and the first Marvel movie to launch Phase 2 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The May 3, 2013 release pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?
The first official trailer for Iron Man 3 will arrive on Tuesday, October 23rd.
Directed by Shane Black, Iron Man 3 stars Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Ben Kingsley, Ashley Hamilton and James Badge Dale and is scheduled to arrive in theaters on May 3rd, 2013.
