Tony Stark loses everything in 1st intense trailer for Iron Man 3

The first full trailer for Iron Man 3 has finally been released, setting up what looks to be Tony Stark's (Robert Downey Jr.) greatest challenge yet. So how does it look? Really, really good.

Marvel wasn't kidding when they said they're going even wilder in Phase 2 of their master plan, as Iron Man 3 feels much "bigger" than the first two installments in the series.

How so? It's explode-y. Really explode-y. From a room full of Iron Man suits to Stark's awesome mansion, things go boom. A lot.

The Extremis storyline is also teased here, as well as the aftermath of Loki's alien armada in The Avengers. We also get to see the Iron Patriot armor in action, the Mandarin (Ben Kingsley) and Stark's new corporate nemesis, played by Guy Pearce.

"Nothing's been the same since New York," Stark says, which seems like a nice way to kick off Phase 2.

Check out the trailer below:

 

For context, here's the official synopsis:

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?
So what'd you think?
