First Footage From Iron Man 3

Rather sombre and downbeat, here’s the first footage from Iron Man 3 to be released online.

The full trailer is along on Tuesday, and should provide more context for this misery.

Here’s the official blurb for the film, courtesy of Disney:

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?

All of this adds up to Pepper Potts: Damsel in Distress, though I expect Drew Pearce and Shane Black won’t just let her be another cypher, another arm-ornament turned head in a box. They can do better than that.
