The new Iron Man 3 trailer reveals much more of the storyline behind Tony Stark’s latest adventure - much of which we’ve already dug up in our posts on the Iron Man 3 armor guide and Iron Legion poster breakdown.

Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) is in a bit of a funk following his near-death experience in space at the climax of The Avengers – and despite new technologies that let him control his armor remotely by command, he’s still not ready for the assault by The Mandarin (Ben Kingsley), a nefarious terrorist leader whose Machevellian schemes trace back to Tony’s initial near-death ordeal, as seen in Iron Man.

As viewed above, there is a going to be some major action in this threequel film – and seemingly a much better (and epic) story arc than we got in the lukewarm Iron Man 2. For fans who were not that impressed by the Iron Man 3 teaser trailer: the sight of Tony and Rhodey (Don Cheadle) summoning that Iron Man army – including the unofficial Hulk Buster design(!) – is probably going to be a better motivator to get you in the theater seats, no?
