For all of you who haven't had your fill of "Iron Man 3" previews (and we're sure there are many), MTV aired a never-before-seen sneak peek clip from the comic book threequel on Sunday during their much-publicized movie awards. The clip offers a fresh look at old Shellhead as he finds himself in a brand new life-threatening pickle: though this time, without the aid of his Avengers teammates, he takes a courageous stand against a heavily-armed helicopter as his once luxurious hillside home turns into a collapsing case of rubble and debris.
Despite playing a "billionaire-genius-playboy-philanthropist," Robert Downey Jr has never seemed so tormented as Tony Stark. Is this the end of our favorite chrome-plated superhero? The answer awaits when "Iron Man 3" opens in theaters on May 3rd. Until that day comes, enjoy the preview, above.
Marvel's "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?
