I don’t think I ever did a write up for Iron Man 3 before, but I’m glad I finally got an opportunity to use that sick image of Tony Stark falling to his demise. Anyway, we had a chance to look at some of our most anticipated movies this summer in the form of new trailers…and Marvel played us for fools. They gave us a fifteen second teaser at what appeared to be Tony saving people from a plane crash and asked us to go on-line for the full preview.
So naturally a lot of us did, and this is what they had to offer.
And we got trolled by Robert Downey Jr. But there were some three or four seconds of footage we haven’t seen before that highlighted the new suit he’s wearing and Mandarin smashing fruits with his bare hands. Aside from that, it’s the same exact trailer we saw during the Super Bowl. I’m not hating though because I took that trailer as a parody of sort: we’re so used hearing a lot of studios claiming that their new promo is an extended footage of their upcoming release, only to be disappointed that it had maybe two or three seconds of new material. It’s very self-aware and humorous, but I do hope they deliver on their promise next time because this will get old faster than a fruit fly.
