The Mandarin is out for blood in tense new Iron Man 3 trailer

Ben Kingsley looks to be a positively menacing force in Iron Man 3, and a new trailer shows the Mandarin is out for blood in Tony Stark’s latest adventure.

Director Shane Black is going a little darker for the franchise’s third outing, and the snarkiest Avenger will have his hands full this time around. The new trailer focuses on the Mandarin’s war against Stark, and it looks like he’ll be trying to take absolutely everything away from him.

Here’s the official synopsis for the sequel:

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?

Iron Man 3 stars Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Stephanie Szostak, James Badge Dale, Jon Favreau and Ben Kingsley.
