Rumor Has It: ‘Iron Man 3’ Trailer Description?

Welcome to Rumor Has It, Player Affinity’s roundup of highly buzzed-about movie rumors. On this week’s docket, we have a rumor about the currently unreleased trailer for Iron Man 3.

Is there already an Iron Man 3 trailer?

Normally such a question could be answered with a simple YouTube search, but someone who goes by the alias “Dr. Evil” claims to have seen a trailer for Shane Black’s Iron Man 3, a trailer that has yet to even make its debut.

This individual lengthily described the trailer to Ain’t It Cool News, stating that Robert Downey Jr., Don Cheadle, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Sir Ben Kingsley all appear. We could have guessed that, but if Dr. Evil’s description is to be believed, Iron Man 3 might be grimmer in tone than anything we’ve seen in the franchise’s previous films.

Here’s a description of the trailer in Dr. Evil’s own words, via the source:

“It opens with a voice over of Tony Stark talking about how the events of New York (I’m assuming the Avenger Movie) changed him, and how he’s just not “into it” anymore.   First scene is Iron Man with battle damage, laying down amid rubble and taking of his faceplate to show a bleeding Stark. Scenes of him arguing with Pepper Potts in the armory  (cool shots of alternative Iron Man suits including the red white and blue one we’ve seen on your site already),  press conferences, Tony looking solemn, Tony talking with someone who looks like a psychiatrist, and a short shot of Don Cheadle in military uniform (no War Machine in the preview).  Also one scene of who I presume is the Mandarin, forcefully landing and cracking the ground.  However, it looked like a silver Iron Man.  I was unable to tell in the brief view who it was (maybe due to  unfinished CGI).

We then get a voice over from Ben Kingsley, talking about how there there are no heroes and how he will teach everyone, especially Stark, a lesson.  This is over scenes of the alternative Suits getting blown up, Stark going into surgery, and a fleet of helicopters launching missiles which blow Stark’s home up and apart  (the CGI looked nearly finished) and sending Stark and Pepper into the sea below. Then a close up of Kingsley with no helmet in the Mandarin armor.

It ends with Iron man underwater swimming towards what looks like his ‘heart reactor thing’. Then the logo, then stark walking in the snow dragging a large bag, then the logo again.

All and all, a somber trailer, dark and humorless, which seemed more in tone with  The Dark Knight Rises than with any of the other Iron Man movies or the Avengers.”

Even if this description is valid, Marvel might decide to change certain aspects of the trailer before it debuts. Iron Man 3 is scheduled to hit theaters on May 3, 2013.
