First full trailer for Iron Man 3: watch now

Iron Man 3 has finally released a full trailer - after a lot of teasing - and you can watch it here.

The Marvel threequel carries more weight than your average superhero installment, as it’s the first piece in Marvel’s Phase Two puzzle, following the stonking success of The Avengers .

This time around, Tony Stark is back at his lowest ebb, after riding high with the superteam. The official synopsis states that the genius billionaire playboy philanthropist “finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands” and has to rely on his ingenuity and instincts to fight back.

It’s fairly safe to say that it’s Ben Kingsley’s Mandarin who’s causing Stark all that grief.

Needless to say, it looks like the destruction of the Malibu beach house will be one of 2013's most spectacular set pieces.

For the eagle-eyed, there are a couple of glimpses at Guy Pearce's Aldrich Killian (one of 100 people who want to kill Stark) and Rebecca Hall's Maya Hansen. And it looks like Iron Patriot will be wreaking a fair amount of destruction.

Shane Black ( Kiss Kiss Bang Bang ) takes over directorial duties for Part 3, though Jon Favreau’s staying on as Happy Hogan.

Also starring Gwyneth Paltrow, James Badge Dale and Don Cheadle, Iron Man 3 opens in the UK on 26 April 2013 (before opening in the US on 3 May 2013).
