The newest teaser for Marvel Comics' upcoming action flick shows a bit more of the drama surrounding Tony Stark as his life blows up around him. There's political tension involving a new President, best friend Rhodey flying around in the Iron Patriot armour from the comics, and Mr Stark himself looking decidedly haunted throughout.
Iron Man 3 is directed by Shane Black, who I love for the smirky buddy action flick Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. That movie was the first time I realised that Robert Downey Jr could pull off a decent Tony Stark. This trailer seems to go at what Black does best -- defiant, self-destructive characters -- and adds lots of money and special effects to the mix. Hell yeah.
