A new ‘Iron Man 3’ trailer has been unveiled.

That’s right – with the movie’s premiere date less than two months away – the guys at Marvel have given us one more teaser before the blockbuster hits the screens.

This time, we see a more insecure and contemplative Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) as he evaluates his roles as a boyfriend, business tycoon, and superhero.

The film stars Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall and Ben Kingsley as Iron Man’s archenemy The Mandarin.

‘Iron Man 3’ opens in theatres May 3.

Have a look at the trailer and let us know what you think.

So after two films where witty banter ruled, it seems Iron Man is getting a Dark Knight makeover. At least that’s how it looks from the newly-released trailer for Iron Man 3.

Backed by a haunting musical score, the new ad opens with a beaten Tony Stark laying bruised and battered in the snow. “I’ve got a lot of apologies to make,” Stark says in a voice-over as he removes his Iron Man mask.

“Nothing’s been the same since New York,” he continues, alluding to the mayhem that occurred in this summer’s Avengers. Remember that doozy? When Thor’s brother Loki came to Earth and flattened New York?

A voice-over continues over clips of familiar faces from the franchise – his gal Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) and friend Rhodey (Don Cheadle) – before stopping on Aldrich Killian (Guy Pearce), who, in the comic story arc Extremis, unleashes a super-soldier virus alongside the Mandarin (Ben Kingsley).

“Some people call me a terrorist,” the Mandarin chillingly says. “I consider myself a teacher. Lesson No. 1: Heroes; there is no such thing.”

Then we see how Tony Stark’s world will totally come undone in the new film. His suits are destroyed and his palatial oceanfront retreat is barbecued. By the end, Stark is left dragging his mangled Iron Man suit through the snow.

All that’s missing is Commissioner James Gordon’s weary “rise” line from the Dark Knight Rises trailer earlier this year.

So yes, the film looks darker than its predecessors. And I like it.

Iron Man 3 is being helmed by Lethal Weapon scribe Shane Black (who also directed Downey Jr. in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang) and is due out in North America May 3, 2013.
