Iron Man 3 Looks Freakin' Epic!

The folks at Marvel Studios are clearly not resting on their laurels after the record-setting success of The Avengers last summer. Their next big opus is Iron Man 3, due to hit theaters the first week of May, which serves as the opening volley in their "Phase 2" which will, one presumes, culminate in 2015's Avengers sequel. For Tony Stark's third solo go, star Robert Downey Jr. is joined by writer/director Shane Black, who steps into the chair previously occupied by Jon Favreau.

And the new helmer sure seems intent on putting the playboy billionaire through his paces, as this new trailer shows. Some nice effects shots, plus a very good look at Ben Kingley as the Mandarin, the archenemy who is to Iron Man what the Joker is to Batman. Been waiting a long time to see the two square off on the silver screen, and if this first look is anything to go by, it'll be one for the ages:

Isn't that the Iron Patriot?

It is, but it's not Norman Osborn.
