Iron Man 3: The Mandarin

Iron Man 3, directed by Shane Black will hit theatres in April of 2013.

The story line is still being kept under wraps, but from what can be seen from the Trailer and set photos. The events of the movie take place after New York, i.e. The Avengers. Tony Stark is back in Malibu and this time, he seems shaken and vulnerable. He doesn't seem like the upbeat, arrogant and supremely confident Tony Stark of the previous installments. He seems damaged and broken.

In the just released trailer, he gets his house blown up by The Mandarin, played by Ben Kingsley. It has to be noted that The Mandarin, doesn't seem too close to his ethnic origins as described in the Iron Man Comic books. The Mandarin as the name suggests, has links to China and South East Asia, but here it seems that the filmmakers are taking a slight departure. We'll just have to wait for the movie to hit screens in 2013.
