I've always said that professional football would be more compelling if there were detonating missiles and jet-powered metallic suits involved... really, I have — I've ruined many a fantasy draft by writing in "Jaime Sommers." And now, it appears as though my dreams will be realized: This year's Super Bowl will showcase a new sneak peek for the forthcoming superhero movie, Iron Man 3. Since a three-day wait for any taste of the teaser would be mind-melding torture, below is a quick preview of the video — offering a glimpse at what might be one of the threequel's most anticipated additions: James Rhodes' (Don Cheadle) transformation into the War Machine.
Recent trailers for Iron Man 3 have showcased some of the darker, more somber elements of the film. Here, we get a bit of the full spectrum: Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.) falling, literally, from glory; a weeping Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow); a maniacal Mandarin (Ben Kingsley); and, of course, your healthy dose of explosions. So far, Super Bowl XLVII is ranking pretty high on my list...
Check out the sneak peek preview here (and the new Iron Man 3 poster below), and catch the full video on Super Bowl Sunday. Iron Man 3 hits theaters on May 3.
