If you’re as excited as we are about ‘Iron Man 3,’ then you’ll love this new trailer which was released today. Cool new armor? Check. A hero in peril? You bet. A new baddie to rival all others? Ben Kingsley! Prepare to feast your eyes.

The trailer gives us a glimpse of the new Iron Patriot armor worn by Lt. Col. James Rhodes (Don Cheadle), the Mark XLVII armor that Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) sports and new villain Mandarin (Kingsley).

Super-terrorist Mandarin, in particular, is the star of the clip and mounts an all-out assault on Stark’s mansion, leaving it in utter ruins. (We’d expect nothing less from a guy with a sinister scowl and Genghis Khan hairdo.) The resulting explosion sends the titular hero to the bottom of the ocean while he tries to avoid getting crushed by rubble.

If anything, this trailer has convinced us that we need to be first on line when the movie is released next year.

Are you excited about the upcoming ‘Iron Man’ threequel?
