Tony Stark is a brilliant industrialist and weapons manufacturer. Living in a world of super powered beings, aliens and mutants, Stark stands out as a futurist who can physically adapt to the capabilities of his technology. Using the same intelligence that developed munitions, he created his own suit of armor capable of astounding acts, making him a one-man army that answers to no one.
The third Iron Man film from Marvel Studios takes their most successful big screen superhero to new challenges and heightened tension as he faces off against the Mandarin (played by Sir Ben Kingsley). Possessing rings that harness an other-worldly power and leading an army of followers, the Mandarin has established himself as the most dangerous of Iron Man’s villains in the comics. How will he appear in the film?
Here’s the Super Bowl trailer that gives a short glimpse of Kingsley, lots of action and drama and an extended look from star Robert Downey, Jr.
Marvel’s “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?
