Yes, the title makes sense. The trailer for Shane Black’s three-quel contribution to the Iron Man franchise, previously directed by Jon Favreau until this point, will be released on Tuesday, but today we have a teaser, or a trailer for the forthcoming trailer if you will.
This teaser is a whopping 18 seconds long and features roughly seven brief shots accompanied by intense audio. We see Tony Stark, Pepper Potts making a terrible birthing type face in some kind of Saw device, Iron Man’s newest armor and more, but not much more.
The synopsis for Disney/Marvel’s Iron Man 3 was released last week and it’s more or less the same synopsis for the first two installments from the Iron Man series:
“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?”
Did that get you interested or what?! Well, you can get more excited when a fuller trailer is released on Oct. 23 and you can get completely and overly ecstatic and satisfied when Iron Man 3 hits theaters nationwide on May 3, 2013. Watch the Iron Man 3 pre-trailer below.
