‘The Mandarin must be stopped’

"I'm Tony Stark. I build neat stuff. I got a great girl. And occasionally I save the world," Stark says as the trailer opens. "So why can't I sleep?"  Why indeed? Take a look at this video before you start reading.

'Iron Man 3' Theatrical TrailerRobert Downey Jr. returns as Tony Stark to take on his greatest threat yet, The Mandarin (Ben Kingsley).


Bryan Enk writes ‘the big baddie of "Iron Man 3" is, of course, the Mandarin, played by an oft-hooded and sunglasses-wearing Ben Kingsley. The Mandarin was originally considered as a character in both "Iron Man" and "Iron Man 2" before both stories got too big to also accommodate so big a villain. The Mandarin is one of Tony Stark's most notorious enemies, and his wrath in "Iron Man 3" threatens to strip our hero of everything -- and everyone -- that he holds dear.

When the Mandarin conducts a series of attacks against the U.S., Stark actually first retreats to the sidelines, telling Pepper that he's determined to protect "the one thing I can't live without" while the media asks, "Where is Tony Stark?" However, Tony jumps back into action (and his suit of armor) after sneak attack by the Mandarin leaves his lady threatened, his home destroyed and himself bruised and battered.

Indeed, the Mandarin becomes Stark's most personal enemy to date -- or at least the one that riles him up the most. "I'm not afraid of you," Stark says to his foe via a press conference. "No politics here -- just good old-fashioned revenge."

And we're sure it will be a blast (several, actually) to see all of these characters, backstories, conflicts and awesome flying armors come together into a single (hopefully) coherent narrative. The official countdown to the May 3 release of "Iron Man 3" has commenced.
