Following the box office success of the superhero ego orgy, "The Avengers," we still have more sequels tracking the individual trajectories of each character. Enter the trailer for "Iron Man 3." Robert Downey Jr. will contend with Sir Ben Kingsley, here playing a lethal-looking dude named the Mandarin. The trailer also features a voice reminiscent of (but not nearly as badass as) Tom Hardy's Bane of "The Dark Knight Rises." Trailer and synopsis below:

"Iron Man 3" releases May 3, 2013.

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?
