First Look: 'Iron Man 3' Teaser Trailer Unlocked By SuperFans From Facebook

The trailer for Disney/Marvel's "Iron Man 3" debuts in mere days (Tuesday, October 23), which means, of course, something has to hit first, and that something is a teaser trailer, or perhaps more accurately, a 17-second trailer for the trailer. It doesn't reveal much, though it does show Pepper Potts in pain, potentially being tortured, which we suppose means she's finally part of the storyline in a more significant way. It also shows Tony Stark's latest Iron Man armor (mark 7? It's hard to keep up). The "Iron Man 3" synopsis was released late last week and it's as vague as humanly possible: Tony Stark is challenged, has to face secrets that have haunted him all along, blah, blah, etc. etc. Here it is if you're curious.

The trailer for Disney/Marvel's "Iron Man 3" debuts in mere days (Tuesday, October 23), which means, of course, something has to hit first, and that something is a teaser trailer, or perhaps more accurately, a 17-second trailer for the trailer. It doesn't reveal much, though it does show Pepper Potts in pain, potentially being tortured, which we suppose means she's finally part of the storyline in a more significant way.

The "Iron Man 3" synopsis was released late last week and it's as vague as humanly possible: Tony Stark is challenged, has to face secrets that have haunted him all along, blah, blah, etc. etc. Here it is if you're curious.

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?

Returing to the franchise, is (obviously) Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man along with Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts, Don Cheadle as James “Rhodey” Rhodes, and Jon Favreau as Happy Hogan. Additionally, Ben Kingsley, Rebecca Hall, James Badge Dale, Guy Pearce and William Sadler star as The Mandarin, Maya Hansen, Eric Savin, Aldrich Killian and Sal Kennedy, respectively. "Iron Man 3" hits theaters nationwide on May 3, 2013. This teaser should sorta hold you over until Tuesday.
