"No politics here, just good old fashioned revenge."
Yesterday, Marvel unveiled the second trailer for Iron Man 3, the highly-anticipated sequel that will see Tony Stark, aka Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), face off against one of his oldest comic book nemeses, The Mandarin (Ben Kingsley). An international version of the latest trailer has arrived online, and, while the new versions are almost identical, there are snippets of new footage in the international cut. The footage clearly comes from the sequel's week long shoot in Beijing, China, in December.
Not much is known about what was shot in Beijing, nor how the country will fit into the sequel's storyline, but from the brief footage revealed it looks like a goodwill mission by Iron Man will include some time in a laboratory there. How that fits into the plot remains to be seen.
Iron Man 3 was adapted by director Shane Black (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang) with screenwriter Drew Pearce. Don Cheadle returns as James "Rhodey" Rhodes/War Machine, as does Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts. Franchise newcomers include Rebecca Hall as Dr. Maya Hansen and Guy Pearce as Aldrich Killian.
