Latest Iron Man trailer (teaser) is here

The latest Iron Man 3 trailer has arrived, and Tony Stark’s mansion is no more, courtesy of The Mandarin.

Clearly, Stark has seen better days, as he is now forced to apologize to his friends for getting them into trouble.

And yes, James Rhodes is wearing armor, specifically, Iron Patriot armor.

Personally, I’m thinking this particular clip is far too short, even if it was put together by Chinese electronics company TCL, which managed to shill (get) their slick televisions in Iron Man 3.

So check out the official Iron Man 3 trailer below for a quick refresher.

And for the uninitiated, the official Iron Man 3 synopsis is as follows:

Marvel Studios’ Iron Man 3 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?

Starring Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Stephanie Szostak, James Badge Dale with Jon Favreau and Ben Kingsley, “Iron Man 3” is directed by Shane Black from a screenplay by Drew Pearce and Shane Black and is based on Marvel’s iconic Super Hero Iron Man, who first appeared on the pages of “Tales of Suspense” (#39) in 1963 and had his solo comic book debut with “The Invincible Iron Man” (#1) in May of 1968.
