At 12:01 AM PST the first, highly anticipated, trailer for "Iron Man 3" was released and Twitter, Facebook and the blogosphere have all been abuzz with an overwhelmingly positive response.
Today, AMC Movie News Managing Editor John Campea was joined by Mike Sampson of ScreenCrush.com, Silas Lesnick of ComingSoon.net, Ben Kendrick of ScreenRant.com and Roth Cornet of AMC Movie News to break down and discuss the new "Iron Man 3" trailer.
The panel covers the oft mentioned darker tone that writer/director Shane Black is bringing to the tale, stripping Tony Stark of his overwhelming resources and leaving him to his own devices and the role that Gwyneth Paltrow's Pepper Potts will play in the film.
Take a look below:
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?
